** ''{{Vexx}}'' has a rhyming hint and arrows to show you the way to each PlotCoupon. (You can turn off the arrows if you like on the pause screen.) However, this doesn't stop some of them being NintendoHard to reach.

** The Pokedex in ''{{Pokemon}}'' is a combination of Individual Identification and It's Here: it starts out completely blank but whenever you encounter a Pokemon, either in the wild or in a trainer battle, some information on it is added to the Dex, including where you can find it. Of course, the information the 'dex gives you is limited to what route you can find the Pokemon on, and not whether you have to fish, surf, listen to the radio, or whatever to find the thing. And it doesn't help for evolutions that you can't get in the wild, some of which can get rather [[GuideDangIt obtuse]].

** The crafting components in ''VideoGame/DragonAge2'' are like this- especially bad since there are a couple that are in locations where you'll have only seconds to grab before an automatic cutscene gets triggered and you lose out. A DLC added a shop that would allow you to buy replacements for ones you missed, but this didn't count toward the achievement for finding all of them.

** ''CrackDown 2'' shows every orb you've collected on a somewhat obscure map (it's under the achievements tab, and you need to select the achievement for the type of orb you're looking for) and allows you to 'ping' for orbs about once every ten seconds - if any orbs are near you, they'll show up on your radar briefly.

** ''{{Crackdown}}'' has the hidden and agility orbs. You don't need to find them all to max out your characters abilities (there are more orbs than you need and you can level yourself up other ways) but there are achievements attached, and the orbs could be anywhere in the sprawling Pacific City.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', feeding all of the animals can fall under LostForever, as one dog can only be found [[spoiler:when you travel back in time to defeat Orochi]]. Each of the Stray Beads, however, is numbered, can be gotten until you reach the PointOfNoReturn, and has the area it's in listed.

* '''LostForever''': Not only is there no way to know which item you missed, even if you figure it out there is no way to go back and get it. Your only option is to start a new game and make sure you don't miss it next time around.

** The Hidden Packages and other such collectibles in the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' games. The photos/gang tags/horseshoes in San Andreas were limited to individual cities, while the oysters were all found in water, but could be anywhere in the world. Exception: GrandTheftAutoViceCityStories gives you an option on your map to display the red balloons you ''have'' found and popped.
