* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' has statues of the angel enemies scattered around some levels, which come to life and attack you. Some are part of the natural progression of the level, coming to life when you walk past them; others are optional battles and only come to life when the statue is attacked.

* The first Chozo Statue in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' seems inanimate until you take the powerup it holds and try to leave, at which point the exit seals and it attacks you. Also happens with another Chozo Statue in Lower Norfair. In the ''MetroidPrime'' sub-series, it is recommended to never assume that Chozo Statues are merely decorative: they may be helpful or harmful, but rarely do they do nothing.

* ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain'' series: Lampshaded at one point by GenreSavvy Kain, who notes, "These statues were singularly inanimate. I knew better than to assume that they would remain as such."

* In ''Zork III'', the player must find a way past the Guardians of Zork, which are symmetrical statues lined up on either side of a long corridor that will attack and destroy anything that passes between them.

to:

* In ''Zork III'', the player must find a way past the Guardians of Zork, which are symmetrical statues lined up on either side of a long corridor that will attack and destroy anything that passes between them. Getting past is one of the most complicated puzzles in the game, involving mastery of a room-sized moving box with mirrors on the outside, taking advantage of the fact that the Guardians are completely symmetrical and cannot tell the difference between the Guardian opposite them and their own reflection. [[CuttingTheKnot Or you can just drink the invisibility potion]] [[AntiClimax and walk past them.]]
