* 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.

* 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).

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.
