* In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'', there are multiple large Koopas standing in areas just narrow enough that you can't go around them. You can't do anything with them until Mario and Luigi learn the fire dash maneuver, which allows them to ram the Koopa so hard that he gets knocked over, after which point he gets up and stands in a more convenient location.
-->"Derr...No matter what you hit me with, you can't knock me down!...I think."

* The ''Anime/CodeGeass'' RPG for NintendoDS has a few instances of guards blocking item boxes (including the one containing the [[GameBreaker Guren Mk-II Kai parts]]). Talking to them goes into a [[CompellingVoice Geass]] sequence: ordering them to sleep or dance permanently blocks the item, while ordering them to commit suicide or go home clears the way.

** A RunningGag in the ''TouhouMother'' crossover are the "ants at your feet", which block paths for plot reasons. The player characters refuse to step on them because that would kill them (they don't seem to think of stepping ''over'' the ants... or [[ForgotICouldFly flying]]). This is {{Lampshaded}} repeatedly throughout the game, such as when they are found in a building ("What? Here? Get back to the forest!") or when they give you a gift near the end for being kind enough to never step on them.
