* Drug dealers in VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas. Each drops around $2000 (and pistol ammo) when killed, generally spawn alone, and after an early mission are extremely common, making them a valuable source of income early in the game.
* ''The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned'' in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has Corpse Eaters, airborne enemies that are numerous, very easy to kill with minimal threat, and provide an absurd amount of experience for their challenge, making them excellent to level up weapon profiencies on.

* Taken UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/DragonsDogma'', '''[[BigBad Daimon]]''' himself in Dark Arisen expansion is one, not only he drops expensive materials, rare armors and experience, the fact how ''easy'' he can be killed with Blast Arrows and Conquerer Periapt is the main reason he's so frequent to be killed over and over again.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has the Forest Hunters and Darkmoon soldiers, quick sources of souls, and a respawning Titanite demon, which drops the otherwise limited in number Demon Titanite, used to upgrade powerful boss weapons.

* The Golden GUN units in Sonic Adventure 2 teleport in at specific locations if you get close, and then teleport away if you don't kill them in time. They are worth 1,000 points, so you might want to consider memorizing their locations if you want to get those A ranks.
* ''MapleStory'' has the Leprechaun, whose name alone should be a no brainer. What makes these guys interesting is that they don't attack, they don't ''move'', they drop stuff ''twice'' before dying, they're fairly easy to kill at around Lv. 50 or so, and most of the time they spawn so close together that you can kill one while waiting for another to spawn. One could theoretically camp here and make a million mesos in about an hour, except that most of the maps they spawn on also spawn a type of ghost monster that's significantly less impressive (often taking away a Leprechaun's spawn); save for one which can randomly spawn the [[DemonicSpiders Headless]] [[BossInMookClothing Horseman.]]

* Parodied in ''The Bard's Tale'' where you kill a common wolf and it spews forth all sorts of goodies followed by a brief dialogue between the bard and the narrator.
* In ''TimeCrisis'', some harmless "bonus enemies" will pop up from time to time. Shooting one will yield a [[TimedMission timer]] bonus. In ''Time Crisis II'', shooting a bonus enemy yields 5,000 points.

* Numemon is this is DigimonWorld3. They take a lot to kill, but are otherwise weak, and pack a ton of experience. The Numemon in the Asuka Jungle Shrine pack as much experience as some of the late Amaterasu {{Mooks}}. The ones in the Amaterasu Jungle Shrine pack more experience than any other Mook in the game.

* ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'' has the standard {{mook}}s of the last stage, the [[spoiler:Tua Soldiers]]. While they have decent attacks and will heal themselves, they are worth a truckload of experience and they'll always drop the Water of Life, a much-valued reviving item. To further sweeten the deal, they are completely outside the game's ElementalRockPaperScissors system in that they're weak to ''all the elements''. This means that Djinni kills--which give you an additional 50% of the experience if you finish off your enemy with a Djinni of the element that it's weak against--are ridiculously easy to achieve. A standard group of three is worth almost the same amount of experience as some of the weaker bosses if killed in this way, and it's easy to level up your party by five or six levels in thirty minutes.

* In ''XMenLegends 2,'' you get LimitBreak powers called Xtreme once you fill up your Xtreme meter, but you probably have to do a second playthrough to get your ''secondary'' ones. Gambit's secondary Xtreme is called Prince of Thieves, and Toad's is called Plunder. These increase the drop rate of health, energy, and techbits for a limited time (often MoneyForNothing, but they can buy some useful items). Effectively turning ''all your enemies'' into this.

* Some enemies in ''BubbleTanks 2'' are like this- they don't attack and drop a lot of [[ExperiencePoints bubbles]]. They usually tend to appear in an adjacent bubble if the player took too much damage (where taking damage meant ''[[LevelDrain losing experience points]]'').

** With a low-mid-tier gun like the cowboy repeater, you can find a group of bighorners, squat down at a distance so they don't detect you, and [[YourHeadAsplode blow their heads to kibble]] with a single sneak-attack-critical shot each for far more experience than they really should be worth and enough meat to last you hours in Hardcore mode (especially if you cook it).

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', Giants are a play on this; while they will mostly send you to the moon with every attack and are quite beefy, they are easy to spot and drop generous loot.
