* The "objects" in ''TheLostRoom'' can be lethal on their own, but when one person has more than one they tend to become obscenely powerful. One particular combination of objects can potentially create a localized rip in space-time.
* This shows up every so often in ''Heroes''. Hiro's time-travelling is greatly helped by hints from Isaac's ability to predict the future. Samuel's ability to control earth (and ink) and Lydia's empath powers combine into a limited form of clairvoyance, which Samuel uses to find other people with abilities.
* In one episode of ''WhiteCollar'', a thief was collecting a set of jade elephants that became much more valuable when all of them were sold together. Neal tried to lure her in by offering to team up so they could sell the full set and split the profits.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Diablo III'' has a special ring whose sole purpose is to reduce the number of items needed to activate the different bonuses for a set, allowing players to mix and match sets.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Toukiden}}'', equipping a matched suit of armour (usually items sharing a name) will grant passive bonuses, such as extra health or elemental damage resistance. In addition, equipping Mitama[[note]]Sprits of people devoured by the Oni, and later liberated[[/note]] that were related to one another in life (say, spouses, siblings, or even just people from the same era) will grant bonuses.

* ''RatchetAndClank: Size Matters'' has armor pieces that can be discovered while playing through the levels. Collect and equip a matching set confers an additional bonus, such as adding acid or fire to your melee attacks.

There are also certain other armor groups that are combinations of armor pieces from different sets, so it also averts this trope. In fact, the best armor combo, [[http://ratchet.wikia.com/wiki/Stalker_Armor Stalker Armor]], is an aversion, since it's made from the Wildfire Helmet, Chameleon Body Armor and Boots, and Sludge Mk. 9 Gloves, and grants ''96%'' damage reduction.

* The Seven Chaos Emeralds in nearly all ''SonicTheHedgehog'' media; collecting them all allows access to Sonic's (and sometimes' another's) SuperMode. Individually, they rarely serve as anything more important than a PlotCoupon, maybe they might even allow for CutscenePowerToTheMax, but in terms of functional gameplay, nada.

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' uses these, with one for every class but TheEngineer. They are quite blatantly RevenueEnhancingDevices, being difficult to [[ItemCrafting craft in game]] and being offered in a bundle for a discount. However, the second wave of sets don't require the themed hat to get the bonus, so they are more feasible to collect without spending real money.
** This is parodied by the "Dual-Purpose Fruit" set, of which one component is actually a long existing item, as the effect is "Reduces the chance of hunger by 13%". [[MetaphoricallyTrue 0 is in fact equal to 87% of 0.]]
** As of the July 10, 2013 Update, however, the original 8 sets no longer affect gameplay, changing this from SetBonus to a CosmeticAward which leave [[CallingCard specialized markers]] whenever you get a kill while using them.
