The Princesses of Heart in ''KingdomHearts''.
were in this status in [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts the first game]]. Maleficent and her cronies [[spoilers: manipulated by Xehanort,]] wanted them so that they can open the Door to Darkness to take over the multiverse. Turns out this is also a case of DismantledMacGuffin. The Princesses' hearts being 7 fragments of the X-Blade which as a counterpart to Kingdom Hearts, can be used to open a path to the titular location.
** [[spoiler: Ventus in Master Xehanort's first attempt to snag Kingdom Hearts.]]Hearts in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep''. The details are that Ventus was split into two beings in an attempt to artificially recreate the aforementioned X-blade, thinking that an equal amount of Light and Darkness must clash. As such Ventus himself is much like the Princesses of Heart. Because of this, he also counts for DismantledMacGuffin, and also because of this [[spoiler: Eraqus thought it be nessisary to kill him, setting off a tragic chain of events that played in Xehanort's favor]].

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', Paul and George go on a fairly pointless delivery mission to a small fishing village, only to discover that the recipient of their stuff has been kidnapped by Tayhil. The actual rescue of this man is not nearly as important as the method the two come up with to deal with the Tayhil, or Paul's confrontation with Spectrem, who wants to call in an airstrike on the Tayhil, or the aftermath and the angry reaction of the villagers.
