** Large galaxies as ours (and to a larger extent those more massive and luminous than it) are considerably less abundant than [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwarf_spheroidal_galaxy those]] of surface brightness and luminosities so low that are difficult to spot even in our galactic vicinity.

** The more massive (thus more luminous, at least for main sequence ones) a star is the rarer it is, as they last considerably less in astronomical terms than lightest ones[[note]]More mass means more luminosity (thus faster nuclear burning) and the two latter facts overtake a lot the first one. If they exist is just because they're still being formed[[/note]]. The most massive and luminous stars -the likes of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deneb Deneb]] and especially those compared to which even Deneb is a joke- are dwarfed in numbers by the in comparison humble Sun-like stars, and much especially the far humbler red dwarf ones.

* ''Very'' true for stars. The more massive (thus (usually) luminous) a star is the rarer it is, as they last considerably less in astronomical terms than less massive ones[[note]]More mass means more luminosity and the latter fact overtakes a lot the former.

** Less notorious but even worse to get is the Gutsy bat. 1/128 droprate dropped by the strongest single enemy in the game, the Bionic Kraken. Also extremely rare, spawns in only one place so you'll probably go through the entire game without seeing one, and so close to the end of the game that all you can use it for is the final boss. It is satisfying to see every other hit be a [[CriticalHit Smaaaaash!]] though.

* DiabloIII: Ancient-tier equipment has a slightly higher power boost than regular Legendary-tier equipment. Full gear sets are extremely hard to complete but make up for it with an ''average 400% DPS increase''. Combine the two with other rare Legendaries with special abilities and you'll be unstoppable.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} has a case of this in-universe with anything of use in the Imperium; most powerful weapons or vehicles were relics from the Great Crusade or older, and with the general superstition and the Adeptus Mechanicus's paranoia about inventing new things, much of these relics have either been irrecoverably destroyed or lost. Thus some insanely powerful weapons are only wielded by the most venerated and powerful individuals, making their appearances on the battlefield a rare sight to behold. The most infamous of these is the Corvus, Sammael's personal Jetbike and reported the last of it's kind; however even in documented cases of it being destroyed beyond repair, the Corvus always returns to service, leading to some to suspect that the Dark Angels are intentionally keeping it a rarity for some reason.

** Magic's SpinOff game, ''Magic The Gathering VideoGame/PuzzleQuest'', is pretty bad at this. Rare and mythic cards tend to be abusively far more powerful than common and uncommons, and quite a few of those rares/mythics [[BribingYourWayToVictory cannot be obtained in-game]] despite being legal.

*** Since it's claimed that no one had ever successfully summoned it before, it's likely that the 5 Exodia pieces Yugi's grandfather owned were the ''only'' set of them ever printed. Since drawing all 5 into a hand is an InstantWinCondition, that would make them the ultimate example of this trope.
