* There are three examples in ''[=McDonald's=] Treasure Land Adventure'', each one requiring Ronald to give up several of his magic jewels. In the [[LocomotiveLevel Circus Train level]], Ronald has to give the jewels to a captured Birdie so that she can break free from her cage and fly away, opening the hatch leading to the top of the carriage. In the [[GangplankGalleon Pirate Ship level]], Ronald has to give the jewels to Grimace, who is blocking the doorway and is so tired, he can hardly move. In the [[SpaceZone Alien King's spaceship]], just before the final battle with the Alien King himself, Ronald has to give several jewels to the Guard so he will fall asleep and he can set the Fry Kids free so they can form a bridge for him to walk across.

* ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'': King Dice acts as this, preventing Cuphead and Mugman from reaching the next area until they've completed the current one. Oddly and epically, he has a VillainSong explicitly for this role.

* ''Videogame/YuGiOhMonsterCapsuleGB'' has this in the RPG worlds. Some [=NPCs=] just won't move until you either convince them to leave or find ways around them.

** The Gerudo guards in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' keep Link from entering Gerudo Town unless he's DisguisedInDrag. You ''can'' climb the walls and try to jump into town anyway, but they'll still detect you and throw you out.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
