* Not even ''{{Pokemon}}'' can evade having one of these. Whenever you see a bush shaking anywhere in [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Unova]], it usually means [[http://img05.deviantart.net/e200/i/2011/111/b/d/audino_by_humanoid_magpie-d3eifrr.jpg an Audino got lost and is ripe for the pummeling.]] They give disproportionately large amounts of EXP compared to the rest of the local fauna (a level 8 Audino found past Striaton City gives an average of 1,080 EXP, enough for most similarly leveled Pokemon to instantly fill their entire EXP bar three or even four times in a row, a feat that usually takes about a solid 10 minutes of LevelGrinding).

** [[GuideDangIt Assuming you know their weakness]], Statues from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' become this. They drop 5 or 8 APB a battle (the highest source of it in the game) and can be fought as early as the second world. They are tough, but their entire party can be wiped out in one turn by Level 5 Doom, which can be easily cast by anyone in your party, and they can be one-punched individually by using soft items on them.

* Practically every single enemy in ''Videogame/{{Yakuza}} 0'' is this, to the point that simply landing a good punch to the face will lead to cash raining all around you. This is due to the fact that cash doubles as XP in this game, making the skill tree a MoneySink. Mr. Shakedown, in particular, is ''loaded'' with cash, but he also turns this trope back on you, making you drop money when he hits you and potentially taking '''''all''''' of your money if they beat you.

Fortunately, they hold onto the money they take from you, so play your cards right and you can get it back plus interest.
** The Nouveau Riche enemies, which pop up after you purchase the corresponding perk at a shrine, is a milder bur safer example, as while they're not any stronger than regular enemies, they yield a lot of money. Nowhere near as much as what the Mr. Shakedowns can fork over, but nonetheless a welcome bonus and a much easier fight.

* The Eggons in ''Franchise/ChaosRings'' ''III''. On their own they drop a bit more money and experience than enemies of the same level. If you fight three at once, they become three Lucky Sevens, multiplying the rewards by three. The tricky thing is, Eggons only take 1 damage from any attack, so Eggon hunting is best done with weapons and genes that hit multiple times.

** ''[[Franchise/ChaosRings Chaos Rings II]]'' has weak enemies which call reinforcements. It's possible to enter a fight with them and easily rack up hundreds of thousands of EXP and money by not killing the last one and letting more get called. You can make even more by using items which double EXP and money obtained. A short time in battle can easily earn multiple levels, even in the post-game.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Wallmasters leave you a ''crazy'' amount of rupees. However, whether or not it's worth it is debatable: if they catch you, it's [[MookBouncer back to the temple entrance for you]], and OOT is the poster child for MoneyForNothing.

** Yiga Clan enemies are actually the ''only'' enemies in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' that carry rupees, though it's still a much larger amount of rupees than you would find in other contexts. And while the Blupees aren't actually monsters, you can still hit them with arrows for rupees until they run off.

* [=ChuChus=] drop delicious Chu Jelly, especially the rare ones on ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', which either act as super potion or can be sold for an enormous amount.
** Going back to the first ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' game, players quickly learned that the best place to go for lots of rupees was the Tektite canyon two screens right of the origin. Zols in the various dungeons also provide a rather high payout, and unlike Tektites are slow moving and easy to kill. However you need the White Sword to benefit, since the starting sword causes them to split into Gels, which give bupkiss.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': When fighting in a dungeon, sometimes one of the {{Mooks}} will spontaneously turn into a paper cutout wearing a gift bag. When you win that battle, you will get fantastic rewards such as high-quality ''kekkai'' cards, ''daruma'' fragments or battle tickets.
** After clearing a dungeon, there's a possibility that an Octopus will appear, which you're only allowed to fight if you can invite at least one player and at most two players to fight it with you. Defeating an Octopus will give a huge amount of experience points for all ''shikigami'' and the team leader's ''onmyōji'', high-quality ''mitama'', some [[RareCandy Awakening materials]], and of course coins.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' series has a few examples of these, such as the Iridescent Flint Beetle and the Honeywisp. They're among the few things on the planet that ''aren't'' [[EverythingTryingToKillYou interested in eating or otherwise harming your Pikmin]], and attacking the latter gets them to drop nectar (which empowers any of your Pikmin that are not already flowered), while the former can drop nectar and pellets.
