* In the ''SakuraTaisen'' TV series, five mystic stones, scattered and hidden through the capital city, act as seals on an ancient and powerful demon. If even one remains, the demon cannot be released. [[YouCantThwartStageOne Naturally,]] the bad guys are locating and destroying them, and the good guys can never find any but the next one the bad guys are about to attack.

* The hunt for Innocence in filler episodes in ''[[DGrayMan D.Gray-Man]]'''s anime. Whenever they find a fragment of innocence, the Akuma have found it too and are after it. Cue epic battle! Often justified by showing that the bad guys were there first but were too inept to break through the barriers, solve the puzzle or resist the protective magic to the [=MacGuffin=], and are just bashing away at those obstacles in the hope of getting through. Only the heroes have the resourcefulness to actually get through, so they always get it. Then the bad guys attack the heroes to try and get it, now that the barriers are gone.
* Averted in Part II of ''{{Naruto}}'': with the exception of Shukaku and the Nine-Tailed Fox (both of whom were/are sealed in major characters), the antagonistic Akatsuki has been able to collect most of the Tailed Beasts with almost no opposition from the protagonists whatsoever.

* Averted in ''NeverwinterNights: Hordes of the Underdark'' in Shaori's Fell, where Sabal goes after the mirror pieces in a specific order, and even if you try to go ahead of her she ends up with at least one.

* In ''Manga/SailorMoon S'', the Outer Senshi (good guys, although not initially in the same team as the main character) and the Death Busters (bad guys) are simultaneously searching for three talismans supposedly hidden inside unknown humans. In every episode, both sides arrive at the same time to examine the next VictimOfTheWeek. It is hinted, however, that the good guys cannot extract the talismans themselves, and must thus rely on the bad guys to do the dirty work for them.

*** Definitely averted in the "Sands Of Time" episode. Jack brings his future self back from the future, and his future self knows the exact location of every Shen Gong Wu, so the bad guys have a serious advantage for a while.
