* As shown by the page quote, '''Merasmus the Magician''' the Wizard in some of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'''s Halloween maps have a large wheel that he forces the two teams to watch him spin. Said wheel has a ton of spells that range from silly (making everyone SuperDeformed) to inadvertently both helpful and useless (giving ''both'' teams Ubercharged and this invincible) to dangerous (spawing a lot of explosives).

* A recurring artifact called "The Wabbajack" in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series turns enemies into random monsters, ranging from simple rats to minibosses. In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' it is a LethalJokeItem and minor DiscOneNuke. It's very easy to obtain from the start of the game, its most common effect is an elemental blast that is more powerful than anything a low-level character could manage, its rarer effects are mostly positive things for the player like transforming enemies into harmless bunnies, and the worst thing it can do (turning the enemy into a powerful demon) can be undone just by hitting them with the staff a second time.

* Nico's Staff of One in ComicBook/{{Runaways}} can cast any spell she can imagine, but [[ItOnlyWorksOnce she can't use the same spell twice]] without running into this trope. The first time she tries, a flock of pelicans flies out of her staff. [[TimeStandsStill She was trying to freeze the room]]. Later, she tries to fumigate a swarm of bees (forgetting she'd already done this off panel) and winds up teleporting several miles into the local desert.

* In ''Comicbook/{{PS238}},'' [[WalkingSpoiler Toby]] is a RealityWarper who can do seemingly anything. However, because he was empowered by an [[OrderVsChaos angel of Order and demon of Chaos]] [[GodKartingWithBeelzebub working together]], any "orderly" action he tries to take will also have a "chaotic" counterpart.

* In ''[[VideoGame/ChocobosDungeon Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon]]'', the final ability for the Scholar job is "Truth", which casts a random spell when used. In the NintendoDS remake, this is now the Scholar's '''first''' ability; the new final ability is a variant narrowed to the most powerful spells only.

* The Surprise Device in ''VideoGame/WaterWarfare'' does several effects, ranging from the beneficial-to-all (everybody gets healed and has their water refilled!) to the bad-for-all (everyone gets rained on and takes damage! Ack!) to the bizarre ([[AnvilOnTheHead Pan On The Head]], it gets dark for some reason). And of course, the standard "nothing at all happens" effect.

* ''Videogame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' uses [[FantasticDrug pills]], which range from various stats ups, stats downs, heal, damage, even teleport you to another room. While these can be predicted somewhat if you know the ins and outs of the game, or if you obtain the PhD item, you're best crossing your fingers when taking an unknown pill otherwise.
