* The queen in chess verges on this, at least in the beginning of the game. A common piece of advice to beginners is to never bring your queen out too early, as while it is the most powerful piece, that actually makes it vulnerable in the opening due to the fact that it can be chased around and trapped by less valuable pieces. Of course, there are always exceptions to this.

* Sports cars, especially higher-end ones, can fall into this easily, as using them gradually wears them down over long-term use thus reducing the resale value (just like any other car) and they're an attractive target for car thieves and vandals when they're out in public. Also, getting one of these in an accident will be an insurance and repair cost nightmare compared to getting an ordinary coupe or minivan in one. As a result, these types of cars end up being status symbols for a number of owners rather than everyday driving machines (on top of [[AwesomeButImpractical being fuel-inefficient and speed limits preventing them from being used to their full potential unless one takes them to a closed racetrack]]).

* In ''VideoGame/DragonballZDokkanBattle'', players can obtain the really rare Elder Kai cards. Elder Kai cards can be used to level up a character's Special Attack level, making their LimitBreak hit much more harder. However, many players suggest trying to find or grind cards for that character to save them for someone who would ''probably'' need it more.

* In ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', the Borg became this for the show's creators. The Borg were so awesomely powerful (and impossible to negotiate with) that they only got used four times (6 episodes, because of 2-parters) over the entire 7 seasons of the show. It was just that hard to come up with a way to defeat the Borg without making them seem less awesome. Of those 4 times they face the Borg, they are saved once by essentially DivineIntervention, and once they are merely facing an individual drone and the challenge is to make him an individual (plus attempting not to tangle with the Bord ship coming for the rescue), not to defeat him. So the Enterprise crew only actually defeated the Borg twice during the run of the TV series.

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'' features messengers. Once unlocked, you can call upon a messenger to give you a clue for certain puzzles. You only get one clue per messenger, and there are only three messengers in the entire game.

The problem is that they tend to be so vague and generic they usually don't tell you anything but the current puzzle's most basic approach while the info you actually need to proceed would be much more specific.

** In-universe, Imperial Titans take centuries to construct, due to the veneration given to them by the Adeptus Mechanicus (The revered Emperor-Class Titan is implied to take a millenium or two to actually make). As a result, even though a single titan can turn the tide of battle in the Imperium's favour, they're seldom used outside of defending their Forge World homes, so the act of deploying even a single Titan Maniple (which consist of only three titans) is considered a Godzilla threshold just under that of Exterminatus. This also means that the Imperium will go to absurd lengths to recover even parts of a Titan, as repairing one is far quicker than building a new one. The only aversion to this are Imperial Knights, who are specifically created as cheap, mass produced versions of Titans for use in "small" scale engagements.
