** When players die in ''Runescape'', all of the items they lost on death are kept under a short-lived gravestone. Given that the most dangerous areas and a long way from the nearest respawn, it's not unlikely that you'll lose a lot because you couldn't get back in time. However, other players can repair your gravestone, giving you precious minutes so you can get your armour back... [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential or they can just watch the gravestone wither away and take what used to be yours...]]
* BioWare follows their usual standard in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''. If you do a good turn for the various [=NPCs=] you meet during your quests, they'll frequently send you an in-game email with their heartfelt, and heartwarming, thanks. (And some are served with a side of [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Moment of Funny]])
** Likewise, each of the eight character classes has five Companion Characters. Being a dick to them usually makes you feel like an utter heel. Win their affection, though, and you can get bonuses to crafting, unlock new quests, or even trigger a romance subplot.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask,'' for the N64. You have to complete a sidequest which revolves around reuniting a separated couple because the man, Kafei, has been cursed to become a child. You actually have to complete the quest twice to get all the items for game completion, but to get one of the items (the Postman's Hat) involves not helping Kafei reclaim his mask he was going to give to his girl Anju. This of course means that Anju is going to wait in Clock Town alone, until the moon crashes down on her...

* The first chapter of ''VideoGame/DeepSleepTrilogy'' says that a boy named Cody won't be able to wake up without his toy tiger. While exploring the area in the second game you'll find Cody's bed in an orphanage, along with the toy tiger in question. If you remember to put the tiger on the bed... nothing happens, it doesn't advance the plot in any way. But you do get a special scene in the ending of a newspaper clipping where a comatose child named Cody will wake up from a coma.

Later in the game, you learn that the old man is a member of the Wind Tribe, and he'll give you a new weapon as thanks for saving his life.
