** Similarly, the Australium Weapons-the stock weapons and the Force A Nature, Black Box, Axtinguisher, Eyelander, Tomislav, Frontier Justice, Ambassador and Frying Pan in a beautiful golden skin. However, they are ''very, very'' rare and only the luckiest of players may get one during Mann Up. You're actually lucky if you get anything nice in Mann Up mode at all now-at the time of typing, drops were so bad that an increasing number of the fanbase are calling Mann Up a scam.

[[note]] In fact, the Golden Frying Pan is the rarest and most expensive item in the game BY FAR (so much that an announcement pops on ''every server'' just to tell everyone someone got the pan in a drop). In fact, the first pan found and sold on TF2Outpost went for '''''$5,500 US dollars.''''' And even now as of typing, it still costs around ''$1955 to $2345 US dollars''.

* The folks at Valve have decided to throw the unlockable weapons of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' into this category with rates based on time played, and made the achievements "useless." The first day had absolutely horrendous drop rates, and most of the time it was weapons you already had, so [[SarcasmMode you can imagine how fun that was]].

* In the postgame of the first ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'', there are four secret Yo-kai you can fight and recruit: Tengu, Dromp, Zerberker, and Kyubi. However, the only way you'll have a chance to fight each is if you bring them a specific rare random drop from an enemy. And the enemies that drop the items have no connection to the items they drop--for example, the Ancient Flower you need to fight the earth spirit Dromp comes from Lamedian, a pun-based Yokai. And if you lose the battle versus the secret Yo-kai? You need to bring them another rare drop! Fans commonly consider the quest to be a GuideDangIt because of this.

* In ''SuperSmashBros. Melee'', there is a 1 in 151 chance of getting Mew from a Poké Ball, and a 1 in 251 chance of getting Celebi. Disappointingly, they only appear and fly away, but reward you with a lot of points, and an alert after the match is done telling that you met them for the first time.
** This also happens in ''SuperSmashBros. Brawl'', but with severely decreased chances of getting any legendary Pokémon at all. This being the case, however, most legendary Pokémon are much more lethal; Mew drops [=CDs=], Celebi drops trophies, and Jirachi (who wasn't in ''Melee'') drops a ton of stickers.

* In the remake of ''Videogame/NocturneRPGMaker'', enemies have a 0.75% to 2% chance to drop an item. While this doesn't sound too bad at first, the catch is that the drop covers a huge range of items, with varying chances for each item depending on their usefulness. While it's easy to get a few drops, getting specific drops can take a while.

* ''Warhammer: Age of Reckoning'' averts this to a degree. Although there are still random drops, when you get a quest to get, let's say, 10 wolf eyes, at least the game have the decency to give two eyes to most wolves, and no quest has a <1 drop ratio. You also get fairly good items from influence and even better ones for cheap if you have renown, so the rare-drop ones aren't all that needed.

* In ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'', opening a Surprise Package (obtainable only as gifts from other players or a relatively rare card) has a 1-in-1008 chance of giving you a Blemmigan Secretary. The Blemmigan Secretary isn't the ''best'' companion in the game, but it does have higher Persuasive than most other companions and [[RuleOfCool looks cool]].

* ''VideoGame/LufiaAndTheFortressOfDoom'' has the Might equipment, the strongest gear in the game, most of which can only be obtained through Rare Random Drops.
** ''VideoGame/LufiaTheLegendReturns'' has a 480-attack InfinityMinusOneSword obtainable as a random drop...from generic enemies ''[[DiscOneNuke on the very first continent]]''.

Using a RandomDropBooster makes the drop at least a little less rare.

* ''FFIV'''s sequel, ''The After Years'' averts this thanks to an item that changes the rare drop to the next item on the rarity list. Due to how the RandomDrop system works you’ll probably get more rare items than normal ones.

* Enemies in ''RecettearAnItemShopsTale'' randomly drop ingredients needed to fuse the best items to sell in your store (or equip on your hired adventurers). Each enemy also has a rare drop, which is needed for better fusions or, in one irritating sidequest, to recruit Caillou as an adventurer.
