* Being a LightNovel based on video game elements, ''LightNovel/KonoSuba'' has "Steal" as one of the many Skills adventurers can learn. The skill works by concentrating, reaching in the direction of the target, and holding the user's hand out until it glows and the item is at hand. The item stolen is not controlled by the user, rather it is based on the user's LuckStat. Good thing the main character [[BornLucky has a very high luck stat]].

* Parodied in the ''[[VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi Umineko]]'' fan novel [[RPGEpisode "Witches and Woodlands."]] Jessica, having spent the entirety of the dungeon crawl segment trying and failing to use her "Steal" command to actually steal anything, finally succeeds during the BossBattle with Satan, acquiring... [[KleptomaniacHeroFoundUnderwear Satan's panties]]. Jessica is disgusted, George is amazed [[InfinityPlusOneSword at the stat bonuses they bestow]], [[ChivalrousPervert Battler]] wants to equip them on his head, and Satan is understandably ''pissed off''.

* In ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'', enemies never drop their equipment when killed, but what you steal is taken from the equipment: Steal an enemy's weapon, he's now reduced to his fists. The strange part is that you can even steal character stats (by stealing things such as a kiss or their innocence). Some very valuable and useful items can only be gotten by stealing them from enemies in combat. Including a Legendary Equippable HorseWiener.

** And lest we forget one of the early quests has the main character [[CrowningMomentOfFunny STEAL THEIR OWN PANTS]].

** The white chocolate golem carries around a recipe for white chocolate chip brownies. Kinda logical, maybe. Less logical is that it's ''your mother's'' secret recipe. [[YouShouldntKnowThisAlready And lest we forget one of you can't make your own mother's brownies until you read the early quests has recipe]], which can ''only'' be obtained by pickpocketing it from the main character [[CrowningMomentOfFunny STEAL THEIR OWN PANTS]].golem.

** You can however steal an entire stack of runes from someone in Stealing Creation with pickpocketing. This would normally not be much of a problem as a spell needs multiple kinds of runes, allowing for some redundancy, but there are only two kinds of runes in SC. This means you can cackle maniacally as they chase you, punching you for no damage as you just took away a mage's only ability to cast.

* ''RuneScape'' has an entire Thieving Skill, with chest looting, pickpocketing, stealing from street stalls, looting tombs and even knocking out thugs and rummaging through their pockets. Not all {{NPC}}s can be stolen from, but the ones that can be generally fall into this trope.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' and most ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games are full of this.
** ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' wasn't actually theft, the technique was "charm" and it coaxed a monster into giving the item.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' had an amusing aversion of this: At one point, you had to use the "steal" command to grab the uniform off of a guard -- leaving him in his underwear in mid-battle and [[DefeatByModesty causing him to flee]]. Everywhere else it was played straight.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', stealing from a robot would destroy the robot, and gain you a grenade. [[HandWave Presumably it was the machine's power source.]] Other robots could be frisked for Al Bhed Potions.

to:

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' In ''{{VideoGame/Arcanum}}'', a skilled thief can strip people off their ''plate armor'' without them noticing. Moreover, using a [[LuckManipulationMechanic Fate Point]] allows even the clumsiest PC to do this.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'':
** The player, with the right perks, can get 100 in Pickpocket, Stealth, and the highest level perks in both those trees, allowing them to steal someone's armor and weapons ''while fighting them''.
** If you're good enough with both Steal and Pickpocket, you can actually ''steal the heart right out of a Briarheart's chest''. [[AreTheseWiresImportant They will promptly fall over dead]] while you giggle maniacally.

spectacularly you can [[AreTheseWiresImportant steal the technique was "charm" power source]] for their power armor, forcing them to leave it. There's something satisfying about knowing that, at any point, you can completely ruin an enemy's sense of protection by ruining both his weapon and it coaxed a monster into giving the item.
