** The most infamously bad rare card to date is a card called [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Fusionist "Fusionist"]]. While all fusion monsters at the time were Rare (because they were one of the few ways to bypass the "1 summon per turn" restriction back then) Fusionist stood out as not only was it weak (even for a fusion monster at the time) and was a Rare, but it actually had ''lower stats'' than one of it's component parts (Mystical Sheep #2). This means that the only reason you'd ever want to play Fusionist (and to waste 3 cards from your hand to summon it) was to abuse the fact that it did not take up your one summon per turn. If you actually wanted stats, just playing Mystical Sheep #2 would have been better.

** This trope can even apply to moves. Kartana is an Ultra Beast with stats just a hair shy of a Legendary Pokemon. It has a move exclusive to it in it's debut game... Cut. The same Cut that was a woefully under-powered HM move in previous games.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'', the player hatches Pokemon eggs by walking 2, 5, or 10 kilometers while playing the game. Eevee, while far from being a ComMons, is one of the more common Pokemon to find in the world... and can hatch from the 10 km egg, which otherwise yields the rarest Pokemon. As a result from many players' frustration, this was eventually changed so it hatched from the shorter-distance, more common 5 km eggs instead.

** There have also been [[InvertedTrope inversions too]]. The most notable case is Tentacruel, the fully-evolved version of the jellyfish Pokémon annoying players with their commonness on sea routes since Generation I, appealing to competitive players due to its high Speed, high Special Defense, the ability to shrug off certain field hazards while laying its own, and its Poison-type only becoming more useful because the newly-introduced [[FairFolk Fairy-type]] Pokémon are weak to it. Another is Bronzong, whose basic form, Bronzor, were extremely common in caves from [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Generation IV]] and onwards, due it its MightyGlacier stats and matching defensive types, at least until [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Generation VI]] when two of the Steel-type resistances (Dark and Ghost) were removed.

** There are plenty of rare but almost useless {{Mons}}: Tangela and Lickitung were this in the first generation, and subsequent games followed in their footsteps with such duds as Qwilfish and Dunsparce. However, Chimecho takes the cake here: In its [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire debut games]], it was located in a small area of a story location well off the beaten path, only had a 1% chance of appearing there, and was not used by any trainer in the game, so [[GuideDangIt you couldn't use the Pokedex to find it]]. If you somehow got lucky enough to find and catch it, you learned that it's one of the weakest Psychic-types ever introduced, with mediocre stats and a terrible movepool.

* Any of the pinball machines created by Creator/{{SEGA}} in the 1970's. They are historically significant as Japan's first commercial-scale pinball machines, and were popular enough for SEGA to continue making them for several years. However, they used a lot of unique parts produced only by SEGA, no company currently exists that creates replacement parts, and for the parts that can be 3-D printed, no templates have been made. As a result, as parts break on existing machines, the only solution is to cannibalize parts from other SEGA pinball machines.
* ''Pinball/{{Orbitor 1}}'' is unique for having a playfield that isn't complately flat, causing the ball to swerve around and trace unusual paths. It is a rarely seen novelty, but is just that--the playfield itself is so empty that there's barely anything to shoot for, and once the novelty wears off on ''Orbitor 1'', what's left is an incredibly boring game.
* ''New Canasta'' is a basketball-themed EnhancedRemake from a small vending machine producer from Spain and is the first mass-market pinball machine to carry several distinctions: The first to have an HD monitor, the first to use an acrylic surface instead of wood, the first to have magnetic switches rather than mechanical switches, and the first to use only [=LEDs=] instead of incandescent bulbs. The company is too small to create very many, but a number of small oversights came together to render the game far less appealing than the machine it was remade from.[[note]]These include a camera taking pictures of when you lose a ball, the acrylic playfield making the game move so fast to near unplayability, the bizarre pink-and-purple color scheme, and the monitor's heads-up display looking like a bad [=PowerPoint=] presentation.[[/note]]

* The DVD of the infamous direct to video Disney film JustForFun/AladdinIVJafarMayNeedGlasses is extremely difficult to find, due in part to how poorly it sold combined with Disney destroying all of their unsold inventory of it, Copies of it can fetch prices up to thousands of dollars on Ebay and Amazon. All this in spite of it being considered one of the worst films ever made under the Disney name.
