* Frequently occurs in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX''. All missions that continue the main story require Elma and Lin on the party. Most missions unlocked through affinity with other party members must include them, though some are inverted, limiting the party's usual size and disallowing a character so that they can join midway through.

* In both ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel I and II'', Emma is needed in the final dungeon of the first game, and the shrine trials in the second game. This is because she needs to explain to the party members about the things that are happening. Some party members in the second game are also required during certain sections of the game in the second act; Gaius during Nord, Elliot and Sara to rescue Fiona, Millium because she just wants to tag along, Alisa for Roer, Fie for the third exploration and the first shrine trial, Jusis and Sara for [[spoiler: arresting Duke Albarea]], Laura for the final three shrine trials, and Machias for rescuing his dad.

* ''GuildWars'' features a few quests and missions which require a particular hero in the party. It also has the inverse; a quest in which you ''can't'' bring a particular hero, lest the correct [=NPCs=] fail to spawn.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' '''loves''' this trope; at various points in the game, one character or another is required to be in your party to advance the plot, whether you like it or not.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' '''loves''' this trope; at various points in the game, one character or another is required to be in your party to advance the plot, whether you like it or not. Yuffie and Vincent are the only exceptions since they're optional party members and have no relevance to the main plot.



* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has an unusual case of the trope at the end of the 2.5 storyline. [[spoiler: Midgardsormr, a legendary and ancient dragon whom you defeat at one point, not only takes away [[TheGift your special ability that the Mothercrystal blessed you with]], but uses some of that power to construct himself a temporary body and forces himself into your company as a minion/pet. Unlike other minions, Midgardsormr is NOT optional and he automatically gets added to your minion list whether you want him to or not. Said dragon will also pop up during certain cut scenes to give his quips on what the current situation is and you can't stop him from doing so. To drive the point home further. Floating/flying minions will sometimes land on your head/shoulder and fly off if you move. Midgardsormr, if you have him out, will perch on your shoulder and will only get off when he feels like it as he sticks to you like glue. That dragon won't be leaving anytime soon.]]

At the end of 3.0, Midgardsormr is impressed by your achievements without your gift and not only do you earn it back, the dragon gains an adult body and allows you to fly on his back as a flying mount while being forced into your mount collection. You don't have to use him as a mount and are free to use a different mount to fly with.]]

* ''FireEmblem'' has several chapters in most of it's games where a character is forced into the party and absolutely must be used for that chapter.
** Unfortunately, you usually have to keep them alive too, ie., you can't just let them get beaten and leave the field; if they get beaten, they're dead.

* ''NeverwinterNights2'' had an interesting take on this that alleviated the more annoying aspects of the trope. It forced you to take Shandra along for an entire chapter.... but raised the party member limit by one to accommodate her, allowing you to take whatever team you were comfortable with in the previous chapters, plus her. When [[spoiler: she died, the extra spot became open]].

* ''VideoGame/TelepathTactics'' does this twice in the campaign: Teresa and Phoebe have to be included in the party in the crypt SideQuest, as does Silithis Predat in Rescuing Sarn Kamina. (In the later case, [[WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou it's also an automatic game over if she dies]].)
