* ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' has Grunty's Furnace Fun, a board game and Gruntilda's last ditch attempt to stop Banjo and Kazooie from rearching the top of her lair. The answers to personal questions about Gruntilda are randomized each game. ''Banjo-Tooie'' has the Tower of Tragedy Quiz where the loser gets a 16 ton safe dropped on him. By this time, it's evident that Grunty's love of random quizzes knows no bounds, so she continues with the questions during the FinalExamBoss battle where she promises to "go easier on you" if you answer them correctly. Bit of a lie, as there isn't a huge difference between her faster and slower magic blasts. It returns in "Nuts and Bolts", where getting L.O.G's questions right would add extra time to the mission that he assigned you.
* Swanky's Bonus Bonanzas in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2'' were exactly this, but thankfully they were optional bonus rounds that offered {{One Up}}s. Ironically, your number of extra lives don't get saved, but the fact that you completed a Swanky Quiz does, so they're strictly a one-off bonus that stays locked on loading a "Quiz Completed" save.

* In ''[[VideoGame/GaiaOnline zOMG!]]'', many of the early NPC characters each had a conversation topic about a particular game mechanic, which was followed by a pop quiz on the topic for a small reward. Considering the number of players that ask about these basic mechanics on the forums now, these have likely been removed.

* This is the schtick of ''VideoGame/AnotherCode''. Pretty much every chapter in the game ends with a multiple choice test of the events in that chapter. SpiritualSuccessor ''HotelDuskRoom215'' did the same thing.

* ''ShadowHearts'' - Both ''Shadow Hearts: Covenant'' and ''From The New World'' feature this trope repeatedly, with the most infamous example being in the former where you are quizzed on the lifestyles of naked male supermodels.

** ''MegaManZero'' and ''MegaManZX'' usually have one or two per game (also on in-game knowledge) that are as hard to find as the answers to the questions.

* The Franchise/SuperMarioBros fan game [[http://www.mfgg.net/index.php?act=resdb¶m=02&c=2&id=26076 Revenge of the Walrus]] has one or two amusingly ridiculous examples of this, in that the pop quiz questions have absolutely nothing to do with the game. As in, it asks stuff like what baseball team won what season, questions about maths and stuff related to history.
