* {{Eg|opolis}}gmanland in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' has extra lives everywhere.[[note]]At least for PS360 players. Wiis2 players have a fixed number of lives.[[/note]] This is because the level itself is a [[CircusOfFear sprawling monstrosity of an amusement park]] that will [[NintendoHard kill you again and again]] [[ThatOneLevel and again]] until you're ready to break the controller.

* For the entire ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series, before every [[BossBattle]]/difficult section, there'll be a weapons vendor, for you to replenish ammo (and in some games, regenerate health, for some reason). Sometimes, they'll even pop out of thin air.

* Most of the later caves in ''[[VideoGame/{{Pikmin}} Pikmin 2]]'' have a sublevel just before the cave's boss (or at least a very difficult section) with no enemies, lots of nectar, and lots of Candypop Buds.

** The arena for the third game's FinalBoss happens to be placed right next to the Onion. If you don't know what you're up against, you'll likely make plenty of trips to the Onion, as the boss can ''very quickly'' wipe out your army.

** Hell, finding anything more than a box of handgun ammmo or a green herb can make you nervous about what's ahead, especially in the earlier RE games.

* In early levels of ''VideoGame/VelvetAssassin'', a shotgun always precedes a race against time throwing stealth to the wind.

** At the end of the second Wily (Shadaloo?) stage of ''{{VideoGame/Street Fighter x Megaman}}'', you are given a 1-up, some health, and weapon energy right before the boss door. You'll be needing it for [[spoiler: [[ThatOneBoss Vega]]]].

** In ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' Sigma has ''four'' different forms in the 3-phase final boss battle. That isn't bad math, 'cause in the last phase Sigma will alternate between two of those forms (and each comes with a separate health bar). The game warns you just how difficult this battle is going to be when it provides a free health pickup just as the player drops down to the final room.

** In advanced Engineering classes, these are sometimes "Open Note", "Open Book", and "Open Prior Exams that are posted on the internet with solutions". The rationale is that as an engineer, you will have access to your notes, your texts, and your past work. Note, these tests still have a high fail rate.

** Right before the final conflict in the engine room of the first game, Cortana reminds you that there's a huge, well-stocked armory station right down the hallway. What she ''doesn't'' mention is the [[NightmareFuel active camouflaged Flood Warriors lurking inside]].

** Same for ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' in some levels. Right before you encounter your first Wraiths in the second mission, you are given a [[KillSat Target Locator]]. At the beginning of the level, there's a sniper rifle that you will definitely need on Legendary. The comms array building has a rocket launcher that can be used to take out the nearby Revenant. In Tip of the Spear, otherwise a DroughtLevelOfDoom, you get a Revenant and a Plasma Launcher shortly before facing a pair of Hunters and a pair of Wraiths. On the Package, you are given a large stockpile of ammo and heavy weapons, including a {{BFG}}, for the lengthy HoldTheLine episode at the end.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', you're given a full suit of [[PoweredArmor power armour]] and a [[GatlingGood minigun]] with a thousand rounds of ammo within the first hour of the game seemingly just to demolish a group of low level raiders. Then, a huge [[LightningBruiser Death]][[DemonicSpiders claw]] emerges from the sewer, acting as the game's first [[WakeUpCallBoss boss battle]].

During "Taking Independence", you find a Missile Launcher in The Castle, and you will definitely need it for the Mirelurk Queen if you aren't already carrying it or a Fat Man.

* ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' has periods within each mission where Joel will find a workbench where he can update and improve his weapons using whatever loot he found along the way. Why are these workbenches there? Because in the next few minutes, he's about to find himself in a gigantic firefight with waves upon waves of raiders or Infected.
