* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the third game in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series, has threes plastered all over its design and writing. There are three advisers at the War Table, representing three aspects of the Inquisition's power (CombatDiplomacyStealth), and three Keeps to reinforce each of them. The three character classes are represented by three companions and each have three specializations. The narration shows an implicit ThreeActStructure, with each act spanning three main quests. Three power players vie for dominance in the Winter Palace, and three candidates compete for the Sunburst Throne in the endgame. Lastly, three major DLC expansions have been released: a sandbox, a dungeon crawl, and a story epilogue--mirroring all three of the contemporary WesternRPG subgenres.

** Commands and denials also work in threes.
*** In Cold Days, Harry commands an entity using his own name 3 times, to reveal itself.
**** That entity itself is part of a trio.
*** In earlier books and his dealings with the Denarians, Harry denies them three times. On days when he's stressed and tired, the exchange works as "Reasonable request" from the Denarian, followed by Harry saying "No, no, no for a third time."

** Mario in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' can take three hits before he dies. The only exceptions are if he finds a Life Mushroom, which gives him three more hits as long as he gets coins to replenish any hits, or is doing the Daredevil Comet Challenge, which gives him ''one'' hit.
