* The Ecology Quests in RomancingSaGa, you have to kill all the monsters that preys on the monster population you are trying to boost. (Kill birds to increase fish population, kill bugs to raise plant population, etc)

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', there's an overly long sidequest that involves you wiping out what pretty much amounts to a geth ''army''. While there is no specific number you have to kill, you have to wipe them out on five different worlds. This will take at least an hour, probably double that if you explore each planet looking for stuff.

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' often gave these as subquests during large monster hunts. These could be justified as killing the juniors of an Alpha's pack or killing the monster's food supply to discourage or delay another one from showing up.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' is pretty light on those in general, with the early class quests to kill 3 enemies each of 3 types probably demanding the most in the whole game. However, some of the dynamic FATE events spawn dozens of enemies to kill.

* Although later content tends to move away from this, these still crop up in ''CityOfHeroes''. They're usually in older story arcs, and dressed as your character beating a lead out of them on the whereabouts of a certain villain or plot. Generally speaking, the improvement is that newer content now longer sends the character to defeat ten enemies far too strong for him in a distant zone far too dangerous for him. The classic example from the older game was being sent to defeat [[EvilSorceror Circle of Thorns]] enemies in the twisted and deadly Perez Park.

* Similarly in ''RogueGalaxy'', you have to kill a certain number of almost every enemy to get a particular achievement/prize/what have you.

** However by the time you get this quest you can have the First-Attack Badge (if you attack a monster in the overworld that would no longer give experience, it dies without entering a battle) and even the Bump-Attack Badge (kills enemies if you even TOUCH a monster that would no longer give experience, it dies). This also one of the earliest areas so its possible to complete this mission by just walking down the path.

* ''KingdomOfLoathing'': the Bounty Hunter exists to give out quests of this type. He offers three quests every day, [[FreedomFromChoice all of which are "go kill X of this monster."]] Somewhat of a parody, since giving out these quests is literally his job despite it being pointless, but it's still tedious. See TwentyBearAsses for more...''much'' more. * ''{{Runescape}}'' players who slay enough chompy birds with a special luring technique will be rewarded [[AndYourRewardIsClothes with fancy hats]].

* ''WorldOfWarcraft'': Guaranteed to take up large amounts of your game experience. ** The most famous questgiver for such missions is the ErnestHemingway analogue Hemet Nesingwary, who would instruct players to slaughter dozens of animals for sport in Stranglethorn Vale, Nagrand, and Scholazar Basin. In ''Wrath of the Lich King'', a questline was added in which the player aids a rival organization, "Druids for the Humane and Ethical Treatment of Animals"...who would instruct players to slaughter dozens of hunters as revenge.

* One of the Trouble Center quests you can get in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' is to kill every enemy in the Boggly Woods. The reward is only 20 coins (which is actually more than another trouble center quest you can unlock at this time) so unless you're going for OneHundredPercentCompletion, it's hardly worth it.

* To the letter in ''TheOldRepublic'': most quests are ''not'' about killing masses of quest enemies, but they generally have a bonus quest attached to them that unlocks once you kill one of the associated monsters. (Sometimes this swings back to normal objectives: one common chain of bonus quests is Kill Enemies -> Sabotage Doodads -> Kill and Loot a Heroid Enemy -> Turn In Item)
