** In "Homestar Ruiner" Strong Bad, in order to get Homestar out of his house, must clear him of the public nudity charge against him, get him back together with Marzipan, and make him the winner of the Race to the End of the Race. Note that each of these is undoing the damage that an earlier set of Three Trials inflicted on Homestar.

* ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'' Year 2 is built around one of these. Manny must acquire unionised worker bee equipment for Glottis (and sober up his sidekick in the process), forge a maritime uninion membership for himself (and steal from a major mafia boss in the process), and finally prevent a ship's cook from showing up for work (and dig through giant kitty litter in the process).

** In Stormheim, before you can visit the Halls of Valor, you need to pass three trials, all of which Skovald perverts in some way, The Trial of Might (best Yotnar in combat, Skovald instead tears him apart), The Trial of Will (have the Thorgnir accept you, Skovald enslaves them), and the Trial of Valor (have the ancient vrykul leaders accept you, Skovald has the bone keepers made to accept him)
** In Val'sharah you need to find 3 Archdruids to help purify Cenarius, [[spoiler: but you have to kill one of them after he is corrupted by Xavius, and thus it fails]], setting up the rest of the storyline.
