* Oh so very much in ''SuikodenIII''. Compared to your level 20 main cast, there's a side chapter starring your fortresses' castellan starts who starts at level 1. It's meant to showcase how not everyone in the world is a great warrior (and it does it pretty well - the boss fight of this chapter is a common boar), but it's a tad noticeable how all random encounters are scaled down to make it possible for you to survive.

* ''FireEmblem 10'' (Radiant Dawn), in which the player controls a few different armies, averts this trope severely. The start of the game featuring a rag-tag group of rebels is easily one of the hardest parts of the game, whereas battles featuring Ike's powerful army aren't too bad, although they do face larger armies.

* In the first ''KingdomHearts'' game, main character Sora [[spoiler:gets turned into one of TheHeartless]], and you can't do anything but walk. You would expect to at least have to run away from the monsters, but the [[EvilTowerOfOminousness Evil Castle]] that was crawling with them a moment ago is suddenly abandoned and monster-free. [[spoiler: All you have to do is catch up to your friends, and wait for ThePowerOfLove to restore him in a cutscene. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that since you're a Heartless, of course the other Heartless won't attack you]].

* In ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', when Ness and Paula get captured, you take control of Jeff, who is only level 1 at the time. However, Jeff gets several items and broken items (to be fixed once he level grinds to boost his IQ) from the start and he can get a temporary ally in the form of a pink monkey. Not only that, but all the enemies Jeff encounters near his school and in Dungeon Road are also at much lower levels, so you can spend some time level grinding. However, once Jeff meets with Ness and Paula, all the enemies in Winters are replaced by much higher leveled monsters.

* Most of the special missions in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon: Explorers of Sky'' can be pretty daunting for the most part, but ''Igglybuff the Prodigy'' is very easy, thanks in part to Igglybuff already maintaining the {{Badass}} status he carries as Guildmaster Wigglytuff. He already has pretty high stats to begin with, and on top of that, being below Level 20, he levels pretty quickly, and each level boosts his stats by ludicrous amounts as well. There are also practically no bosses to speak of in any of the dungeons he explores, either.

* ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' has this when Mayhew asks you to accompany her to see if there are burglars in her storage room. Turns out that there are, but they are all extremely low leveled (around levels 1-20) and they are characters you have seen earlier in the game who were all either wacky or a ButtMonkey.

* There are a couple instances in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' where you lose all your weapons, no matter if you never get wasted or arrested (or never save when that happens). The next few missions after each on have the good grace to drop in difficulty until you get your stock up, although it's not a cakewalk.

* In ''VideoGame/CaveStory'', after getting knocked unconscious and thrown in jail, all you have to do to get out of there is to talk to a prisoner and read a letter informing you about plot developments.
* In ''[[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie Banjo-Tooie]]'', you get SwallowedWhole by a Chompasaurus in a cutscene which uses the intimidating BossBattle music, but if you beat a fairly easy MiniGame it will let you go with a Jiggy to boot.

** Ada meanwhile, gets a gun and plentiful ammo, and fires the pistol so fast that she can take down spider's with ease.



** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' has easy side quests when you control Sherry (Claire's scenario) or Ada (Leon's scenario) as a type 1. The first time you control them, you have to solve a simple box pushing water raising puzzle to get a key that the main character needs. You also control the secondary characters a second time in the sewers where you just have to go through a straightforward path for a few areas. Ada has a handgun, ammo, and a first-aid spray, so she can deal with enemies just fine. Sherry, however, only has a first-aid spray since she is only 12 years old, thus, she wouldn't have a weapon. To compensate for her lack of offense, Sherry has a lot more health than the main characters and zombies will only attempt to vomit acid on her instead of grabbing and biting her (the vomit is a lot easier to avoid).
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'' has Jill get infected with the T-Virus, which weakens her and leads into type 2. You take control of Carlos to find a cure in a nearby hospital. The puzzles are mildly challenging but can be figured out quite easily, The enemies Carlos faces are mostly the deadly Hunters, but Carlos is also armed with an assault rifle and a handgun.
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' has Ashley and Leon get separated at some point and you temporarily take control of Ashley, leading into type 1. Ashley lacks weapons, but the enemies she runs into are easy to avoid and are fairly weak.
** In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' you're forced into a NoGearLevel in Jake and Sherry's chapter. Sherry's is a ''nightmare'' because she has to [[StealthBasedMission run and hide]], but Jake can kick just as much ass with his bare fists as he can with a handgun and can make quick work of the few J'avo who ''dare'' try to aim uzis at him.
