** An example from ''Lost Age'' that fits the "has something to offer later on" subtrope better is the Shrine of the Sea God, which can actually be accessed even before Kandorean Temple, but can't be explored very far. Exploring it as soon as you've finished Kandorean Temple nets you a very useful Djinni, but it also contains one of the {{MacGuffin}}s you need during the rather open-ended middle third of the game.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' is unique in that the very first Noob Cave, the Dreamyard is fought after the first gym. [[PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 The sequels]] had Floccesy Ranch, which is explored before your first gym.

* ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'' has the Brainiac Ship. Somewhat annoying since it is unskippable, you have to do it for every character, hero or villain, and the only variation is heroes and villains get a different VoiceWithAnInternetConnection and at the end you're greeted by either Franchise/{{Superman}} or SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor.

** ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin2}}'' has the Emergence Cave, which only has the weakest enemies, as well as no bosses or hazards. It is also where you first get Purple Pikmin and has only 2 floors.

* Planets Veldin, Aranos, Veldin again, and Kerwan in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'', ''Ratchet & Clank 2'', ''Ratchet & Clank 3'', and ''Ratchet & Clank Future'' respectively. The latter three all have bits that could be tricky for a first-time player, but apart from that, they fit the trope perfectly. You return to some of these places later in the game and they are much harder. [[spoiler: Veldin in '[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'' was [[WhereItAllBegan home to the game's final boss!]]]]

* ''VideoGame/TombRaider 1's'' first level is, quite literally, "Caves". It has mostly weak enemies (bats and snipe-able wolves) and easy puzzles. It's not exactly a walk in the park, of course, but it's a lot easier than the first levels of the next three Tomb Raider games.

* ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}} 2'' has the Emergence Cave, which only has the weakest enemies, as well as no bosses or hazards. It is also where you first get Purple Pikmin and has only 2 floors. It's quite literally a noob cave.
** The Impact Site from the first game counts too. There are no enemies (well, aside from the Mamuta, Goolix and the Pearly Clamclamps, but they're a safe distance away from the landing site) and there are a lot of pellets nearby to grow more Pikmin.

* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' starts in a derelict spaceship before moving on to the planet Tallon IV. Thanks to your partially complete equipment ([[BagOfSpilling which you lose on your way out]]), it's the easiest level in the game.
** ''Metroid Prime 2: Echoes'' has the caves encountered early in the game, which are full of simple puzzles and harmless enemies in the form of Worker Splinters. Well, that's until the Dark Troopers attack. Then [[BagOfSpilling most of your equipment is stolen.]]
** ''Metroid Prime 3: Corruption'' starts in the ''GFS Olympus'', which has no enemies, some story elements, and a basic tutorial until the Space Pirates come in.
