* In the ''Runabout'' series of driving games, the player is rewarded money for crashing into things. The car also takes damage for running into things, and the physics could lead to a damaged object spectacularly destroying your car (especially in the subway tunnels of ''Super Runabout: San Francisco Edition'', where subway trains are some of the most costly objects to destroy).

* ''VideoGame/{{Paperboy}}'': Judging from the points gathered by smashing stuff that belongs to people who didn't subscribe to the newspaper, it makes one think the gameplay is less "give the newspapers to the subscribers" and more "annoy non-subscribers enough that they'll subscribe just to avoid your vandalism".

However, vandalizing a subscriber's property results in them cancelling their subscription, so be careful who you vandalize.

** The 3rd game has "{{killstreak}}" xp bonuses for destroying large quantities of scenery and even an achievement for wrecking 50 items in a row.
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' series is filled with candles and torches ready to be whipped. [[note]] The American manual for ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse'' explained that Trevor Belmont, one of the first Belmonts to fight Dracula, made a deal with a benevolent spirit called the Poltergeist King so that he would hide beneficial items and equipment throughout Dracula's castle. Note that the Poltergeist King is never mentioned in the original Japanese manual, as he was strictly a creation of the game's American localization and no other game in the series contains any reference to him.

** [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Olympus Coliseum]] also has a lot of smashable objects in it's ''[[RecurringLocation many]]'' appearances, from [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI barrels]], to [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII pots]], and even [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep urns]]. They even have mini-games dedicated to smashing them within the time limit, with one being to smash more objects than Hercules.
** ''Chain of Memories'' also had smashable objects, but also some that he had to jump instead. Since both types reset when you leave the room they are identical in effect.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' lampshades the tendency for players to smash jars to find what's inside by having one shopkeeper note that some people like to smash jars. If you bump into the walls to try to get the jars on her shelf to fall, [[spoiler: she'll kick you out and won't let you back in until you apologize.]]

* ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'' plays this trope literally, as you can (and are encouraged to) literally erase parts of Wasteland to find pins, E-tickets, etc. [[ForTheEvulz Or if you just want to be a jerk to]] [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential your former co-workers...]] Of course, [[spoiler: you can just wait for the [[EldritchAbomination Blotacles]] to do that for you.]]

* ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIV'' downplays this trope, as you don't get any physical rewards for burning down the CreepyCathedral devoted to an EldritchAbomination. On the other hand, what you do get is a bonus to your KarmaMeter.

** In a [[https://www.wired.com/2007/10/interview-iga-t/ 2007 interview with]] ''Wired'' magazine, former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi theorized that the candles contain the souls of people killed by Dracula or his minions, and whenever the player whips them, the soul gets released into the afterlife, and the player gets a "thank you" reward for freeing the soul.
