** One of the sidequests in ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'' is to obtain multiple samples of Nocturnus technology from enemies and give them to Rouge to deliver to her superiors. After receiving about four or five, she grows bored of it and agrees to give Sonic the reward if he promises to stop giving them to her.

* Referenced in the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}}'s [[Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries series]]: ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}: ShadowOfIsraphel'' episode 7. Upon delivering the dirt, sulphur, water, golden apples, and feathers to Fumblemore, LetsPlay/SimonLane says "I would have preferred to collect ten bear asses..."

* One arc of ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' making fun of [=MMORPGs=] includes some of these quests.



* When Torg plays a [[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMORPG]] in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' he finds the initial Fetch Quest [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=080801 very underwhelming]].
-->'''The Duke:''' Bring me five red salamander tongues.
-->'''Torg:''' Salamander tongues?
-->'''The Duke:''' Yes.
-->'''Torg:''' That will help "rid the evil"?
-->'''The Duke:''' You're wielding a stick. Start with salamanders.

* ''VideoGame/{{Wizard 101}}'' handles this fairly well, plot wise in that the drops are necessary for such and such a poison or a spell creation or a plot item (even if you don't understand how 5 leathery bat wings could possibly be combined to make a staff or shield). The problem with the handling is at the higher levels and more difficult areas the quantity of item required tends to go up along with the hit points and cards the Mooks use are more powerful and worst of all the drop rate goes down. Due to the nature of the battles in Wizard101, a single battle with a high level Mook can take 10 minutes. This can make a simple gathering quest take an entire day when they lower the drop rate and increase the quantity required.

This sort of quest can draw attention to the inherent FridgeLogic of Random Drops, such as when the drop in question is a vital body part that all monster corpses should have, like a liver, feet, skin, or a ''head''. A flimsy justification is that the body part may have been compromised during the fight. Turns out only ''pristine'' bear asses will do, even when the woodsman just wants twenty bears dead and doesn't actually want to make anything out of the asses. That is one picky woodsman. How you kill the bear rarely affects the odds of its ass being ruined, either, so Clerics whose attacks are mental/spiritual rather than physical are not immune to this trope, while attacks that reduce the target to LudicrousGibs or burn it to a crisp don't reduce the odds of finding the correct part.

->''"That's all? One quest? Surely you jest. Are there not [[AscendedMeme bear asses]] to collect? Perhaps a rare flower that I could pick from which you will make some mildly hallucinogenic tonic which you will then drink, resulting in visions of a great apocalypse? Perhaps the local populace of mildly annoying, ill-tempered gophers are acting up and need to be brought to justice? No? Nothing?"''

** The Uighurs in the same scenario ask you to kill the BigBadassWolf Ornlu and bring them its pelt. Unfortunately, Ornlu is surrounded by his pack of SavageWolves who look just like him, so you will slaughter all most of the time, while trying to not bring the attention of all ''at the same'' time.
