* In the SNES/PSX game ''OgreBattle: March of the Black Queen'' several items have in their descriptions that their only use was to be sold off for money; the player could also find that different shopkeepers would offer varying amounts (or trade goods) for certain items.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'':
** As item drops are only randomized in skirmish games, items meant only to be sold are replaced by coins and lumber pickups.
** In skirmish games, some items can become this, especially if they replicate a spell your faction already has or your hero can cast better. It's better to sell them and get money than leave them lying around where the enemy can take them.

* While everything you find in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' is either money, equipment or ammo, the fact that most of the equipment is randomly generated [[CantCatchUp and usually a few levels below you]] (if it's even a type of weapon you like to use or a class mod compatible with your class), most of it is vendor trash. In fact, there is a unique gun in the game which has the sole special power of being [[http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Knoxx%27s_Gold good vendor trash]], though it can appear with a good set of parts and ultimately avert the trope.

** Fallout 4 even turns actual useful items into this; in its predecessors, where items could be literally worthless when you finally trekked to a vendor to unload, thus forcing you to learn which items were worth collecting (cigarettes, for example, had a good value-to-weight ratio). In 4, possibly as a consequence of the designated junk vendors who sell items to use for crafting, the game assigns a value of at least one bottlecap (the in-game currency) to every single item. .38 ammo is only used for pipe guns, and since you find a superior 10mm pistol before you've even left the vault, chances are you'll stack up thousands of .38 bullets without even realising from fighting lower level raiders who continually use pipe guns throughout the world, even after you've long since moved onto laser guns and missile launchers. Every one of those bullets is worth at least a cap, and unless you're playing on survival mode, ammo has no weight. Basically, never take the perk that increases the amount of money you find in containers; take the one that increases the amount of ammo you find, because you can sell the ones you don't need and keep the ones you do.

* This is the quickest means of getting money in ''FossilFighters.'' You find "Jewel Rocks" over the world, and clean the rocks to sell the jewels inside. However, it ends up being somewhat "normal" in that, in order to claim a Jewel Rock, you must generally [[MoneySpider win a battle]] first.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Most of the treasure you steal from the various Palaces, include the main Treasure each of your heists are targetting, can only be sold at the weapon shop for cash. They have no other uses and stay in a seperate tab from equipment and other usable items.

* ''VideoGame/{{Elite}}'' and games like it (''{{Pirates}}'', ''VideoGame/{{X}}'', ''VideoGame/EscapeVelocity'', etc...) have this as the basis of the merchant and pirate occupations. Buy low, sell high. Typically, of all goods the only one you can use is fuel, if it isn't sold separately from normal goods, and there are contraband goods which are game-influencing in that being caught with it may get you fined or fired upon. The rest differs only in prices and places where prices are high/low.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Sinjid}}'', you can find gold rings in the Dai'jin Mines. These offer negligible stat boosts compared to other trinkets, and can be sold for a good sum of money. The FlavorText even lampshades this feature.
