* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' both have stat boosters, but they're quite hard to make, so until the inevitable grind to HundredPercentCompletion, they're TooAwesomeToUse.

* Elixirs and Wines in ''VagrantStory''. This is one of ''two'' ways (the other one is beating bosses) that Ashley can raise his stats, because the game has no experience points and levels.

* Stat Seeds in ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'', usually obtained from chests, quests and boss fights. They can raise HP or RP by 50 or one of the four base stats by 3.

** There's also the Tropica, a fruit that permanently increases a character's HP by 200(for comparison, Vidal Seeds only increase HP by 30). There's only two in the entire game, and one is dropped by ThatOneBoss(who is also a BonusBoss).

** ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' had Noises that corresponded to each stat, like HP Noise, MP Noise, Magic Noise, etc. Most of these were gotten as occasional drops from random battles later in the game[[spoiler:, but Magic Noises could easily be harvested from Horus' in the optional 3F area of the Brutes base. They're the only enemy you encounter in that area, and they're weak against Death, which by that time any competent player should have Mudoon to quickly dispatch them.]]

* The flash game ''Hero RPG'' has a variant. In one of the early towns, you can buy turkey legs that, the vast majority of the time, do absolutely nothing when consumed. Rarely, though, eating one will increase a random one of your stats by a few points -- usually three, which is the same number of distributable stat points you would get for leveling up.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' buffed Oran Berries by making them boost max HP temporarily even if your HP wasn't full at the time. Capped at 100 and expires when you leave the dungeon. Sitrus Berries were also buffed lightly, in that they provide the same permanent HP increase, but don't require you to heal fully beforehand to get it.

** The TropeNamer, Rare Candy, which increased a Pokémon's level by one. Naturally, these can never be bought with regular old Pokedollars; they have to be found throughout the world (some of them are invisible to boot), randomly obtained with the Pickup ability, or exchanged for Battle Points and other special currencies.
** ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 Black 2/White 2]]'' has even more potent foods in Join Avenue's Cafe: the Wonder Dessert increases their level by three, and the Wonder Dinner increases their level by ''eight''. ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY X/Y]]'' on the other hand has the Rare Soda and Ultra Rare Soda in Lumiose's Juice Shoppe, which increases their level by anywhere from one to five at a time.
** There's also the item category of Vitamins, which include HP Up, Protein, Iron, Calcium, Zinc and Carbos, which add 10 Effort Values to a Pokemon's HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense or Speed, respectively, up to a maximum of 100. These can often be bought in Department Stores or through special [=NPCs=], though they can still be found.
** Also included in the Vitamin catefory are PP Ups, which increase the PP of a Pokemon's move by 20% and can be used up to 3 times on the same move, and the PP Max, which acts as three PP Ups on a move (though it won't increase PP by more than 60% of the move's base PP). Like Rare Candies, PP Ups and PP Maxes can only be found in the wild or through Pickup, or exchanged with special currencies.
** [[InvertedTrope Conversely]], ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Emerald]]'' and beyond have special Berries that have the opposite effect of the vitamins: they ''remove'' 10 effort values from that stat, freeing them up to use them on another.
** It should be noted that a Pokemon leveled up to [[{{Cap}} 100]] solely by Rare Candies is actually weaker than an equivalent Pokemon leveled up to 100 by battling. This is because of [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Effort_values Effort Values]], a hidden attribute that increases a Pokemon's stats based on the Pokemon they defeat in battle (or by using the aforementioned vitamins, but again, only up to 100 out of a maximum 255 [=EVs=] for each stat). While Gens I and II use a slightly different system that still allows level 100 Pokemon to stat train, level 100 Mons in Gens III and IV are out of luck. [[AntiFrustrationFeatures Thankfully]], Gen V and beyond award [=EVs=] even if the Mon is level 100 and recalculate their stats every time they're deposited into the PC, and Gen VI adds a method to stat train without battling at all.
* The ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' series has these in both the stat boosting and level raising varieties. Common to all of the games are various vitamins (Which raise a particular stat other than HP by a few points), Sitrus Berries and Life Seeds (Which raise your maximum HP by two or three points respectively), and Joy Seeds and Golden Seeds (Which raise your level by one and five respectively). While they normally only effect one Pokemon, it's possible to pass the effects to up to three of them by using a Pierce Band holding Pokemon to throw them through the rest of the party.
** Rescue Team and Explorers have gummis, which on top of boosting a Pokemon's IQ stat, can provide a small increase to random stat or sometimes even all of them. They're actually the easiest way to increase a Pokemon's strength, due to being fairly common compared to vitamins and the stat gains from level-ups being minimal.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity'' has devices, which will boost every stat other then HP on a particular type of Pokemon. While normally rare, you're guaranteed to find at least two of them each time you run one of the five DLC dungeons that house one of the starter Pokemon, which lets you easily turn any grass, water, fire, electric, or dragon type Pokemon into a GameBreaker [[BribingYourWayToVictory (If you're willing to spend two dollars, that is)]].

* Most of the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series had these, they were usually quite rare. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', they were called Sources, and could be obtained in unlimited quantities by killing the right RandomEncounters in the right manner. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' isn't the [[{{MMORPG}} type]] of game to have any sort of permanent stat boost items, but it does offer experience point scrolls, which ''can'' level you up if they give enough EXP for the next level. Doesn't work with Merit Points, sadly.

* ''VideoGame/BleachThe3rdPhantom'' has three different forms of rare candy:
** First is performing Konso on a Whole, which gives the Soul Reaper who performed Konso a full 100 exp, which is an entire level.
** Second is various Free Time events, where by choosing certain events or landing on specific tiles, the player character can gain addition stat points.
** Third is limited to the post-game and allows characters to gain additional points that can be spent on raising skills or stats, even after they've reached the maximum level.

** Skyrim also has the Oghma Infinium, a reward for a Daedric Quest. It was a one of a kind book that raised Stats in one area of Combat (Fighting, Magic, Stealth) ONCE, and then it vanished- until a GoodBadBug involving bookshelves turned it into a GameBreaker.
