* In ''WesternAnimation/MightyMagiswords'', the Confusing Alien Magisword does something weird and different every time it's used. This includes altering a person's voice, summoning ducks, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick tearing a hole in time and space]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Discord can control the outcome of each of his spells, sure; but given his {{Cloudcuckoolander}}[=-=]ness, it'll often just be an AwesomeButImpractical visual gag or something.

* The Secret Box items in VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam are this, being a random effect ITEM. You use a non descript box with a ? mark on, something random happens in battle. Could be good (healing both bros, doing huge damage to enemies), could be bad (healing enemies) or it could be plain suicide (wipes out everything on the field including your playable characters in a OneHitKill).

* In ''{{Culdcept}}, the Protean Ring and Baldanders are an item and a creature (respectively) with the same effect: They turn into a random creature during battle. You could become anything from the meager Giant Rat to the [[PurposelyOverpowered insane]] Bundle Gear/Gearion. It also only lasts for one battle.

* In the PS3 remake of ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', almost all of the arts and spells used by Patty Fleur are random in regards to what they'll do, though the odds of something good or bad happening can be tweaked by equipping certain skills. The most random of all is her Critical Moment spell, which has dozens of possible effects that make good or bad things happen to the party, the enemies, or both.

* Quentyn's sword Wildcard from ''TalesOfTheQuestor''. Possibly based on the game trope. It does, however, always come with something useful for whatever crisis he is in, if he is in one. (Out of one and trying to test it, he may find it announcing what time it is -- and ''getting it wrong''.)

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', this is how WildMagic (technically a form of EntropyAndChaosMagic) traditionally works. Every spell that a Wild Mage casts has a CriticalFailure chance that results in it becoming one of these. There are also Wild Mage-exclusive spells that ''deliberately'' invoke this effect in hopes of getting greater power out of it. This leads to [[UnequalRites prejudice from less-chaotic spellcasters]], since wild magic surge effects can range from "annoying" to "deadly".
