* One must feel sorry for the vendors closest to the auction houses in ''WorldOfWarcraft''. Nobody ever buys anything from them, they're just used as dumps for whatever vendor trash an adventurer happens to have, and a repair station for gear the characters wear or are about to sell. There are a few exceptions (quest items and some unique items have no sale price and can't be sold) but considering all the garbage that vendors DO buy, it's a pretty moot point.

* A particular example comes from ''{{Runescape}}''. All items can be sold at a general store. However, certain shops that deal in a more specific area of business might only accept certain items; like how a shield store would only buy shields. But selling items to these specialty shops can earn more money than selling to a general store.

* Similarly to ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'', ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' features shops like this. Most shops are restricted to certain varieties of items (Weapons and armor, bows and arrows, potions, etc.). Certain speechcraft perks can turn the shops into these, though. For instance, in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', if you invest in a store with the right perks, you can sell anything to them (even stolen items).

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' makes a point to avert this. Every shop does have a "sell" option, but picking it will just make the shopkeeper complain, since they're just trying to get rid of their own useless junk themselves. You can even do this at a ''hamburger restaurant'', which causes the unfortunate employee to freak out a little bit. [[spoiler: There is one shop in the secret Temmie Village where you can sell things. Some things that you can sell here will actually sell for more than you buy them for, including an item which you can only buy at that shop itself.]]

To top it all, this, along with the fact you can sell things in the first place, is justified by the shopkeeper being [[TheDitz a moron]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/MapleStory'', you can sell anything except certain Quest Items and Cash Shop Items to ''any'' merchant, even vending machines and merchants who only accept special coins for their own goods. (Although the latter still pays you in mesos, the currency of the game.)

* The ''NeverwinterNights'' toolkit allows module builders to place restrictions on the types of items that their merchants will buy, and they can also be given a finite gold supply. And in ''NeverwinterNights2'', merchants have a finite gold supply even in the official campaign, although they still buy anything.

Tropes cannot be averted "heavily." This is cruft.
* Averted heavily in ''VideoGame/{{Wasteland}}'', in which stores will only buy items that they sell. Stores even keep track of inventory, including the items you sell to them. This can be a great way of storing items in excess of your carrying capacity - selling items to stores and then buying them back later when they are needed.
