* 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.

** In the original game, Lit2/Bolt 2 makes the Wizards/Piscodaemons in Marsh Cave these, as one casting can wipe out the entire group for a very sizeable amount of gil and XP.

* To some extent, the Countess in ''[[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} Diablo II]]'' may qualify for this. The first time you kill her, her spirit (in gaseous form) floats into a chest in the middle of the room, which pops open and dumps out several dozen piles of gold.

* This trope gets a ShoutOut in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' in the form of a ''literal'' pinata shaped like {{Diablo}}.

* ''VideoGame/GoldenAxe'' has the Thieves. These are the quick but harmless creatures that Diablo 3's goblins are based on. You beat on them until they start coughing up potions to restore your magic, the amount varies depending on how many hits you land but you can expect to get at least one or two.
