*** This troper is still amused that the actual key to manipulate the generators in [[spoiler:Past]] Lanayru Desert must be so similar to Link's Sword, that you can simply proceed by stabbing it and spinning it around, just like a key would.

* The Sierra Madre Vending Machines from the ''Dead Money'' DLC of ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. According to background information, they are actually [[MatterReplicator molecular assemblers]], the holy grail of nanotechnology. Yet according to Dean Domino, it never caught on before the Great War, and they're only used as food dispensers for the Sierra Madre Casino.

*** Another viable use of a sealed vampire is to disaster-proof your fortress. Urist [=McVampire=] will always count as a citizen, so your nation and dwarves will always send you caravans and immigrants to resupply and repopulate.


Added DiffLines:

* VideoGame/RuneScape's Divination skill revolves around channeling the divine energy of the gods to create do-it-yourself miracles. One of the most common uses is "Sign of the Porter", which instantly transfers items to your bank account.
** Why does the elite skill Invention require 80 Divination to start? Because you use divine energy to power your gadgets. You are making ''batteries'' out of ''godstuff''.
** After "While Guthix Sleeps", Linza wonders if the Dragonkin Forge could be used to create new items out of [[{{Unobtanium}} dragon-metal]], instead of just reusing found artifacts. Her first suggestion is a dragon ''cheese grater'', though she immediately realizes that's a stupid idea.

* ''{{VideoGame/Undertale}}'': Toriel, a powerful fire mage, uses magic to cook her dinner. A diner in Snowdin is staffed by fire elementals, presumably for the same reason.

** Having a vampire in your midst means having a tireless immortal who will go around the fortress looking for victims to suck blood from. The most common solution to accommodate them and keep the fortress safe from them at the same time is to lock them up in a "control room" and have them [[CruelAndUnusualPunishment pull levers for all eternity]], which ensures important mechanisms of your fortress are always activated without delay.

** The precious adamantine is an extremely lightweight metal which makes the sharpest blades, strongest armor and, due to its abysmal density, ridiculously weak bludgeons. It only makes sense then that one of the best uses for them is "nerf bats" for punishing criminals without hurting them too severely: the hammerer is happy because they got to deliver the beating and the criminal is happy because they avoided the worst of PoliceBrutality.

** ''AssassinsCreedIII'', at a young age, Ratonhnhaké:ton (Connor) used his Eagle Vision to win in hide-and-seek. It's even a JustifiedTutorial for teaching you it. Also, by the end of the game, Connor will likely have used his hidden blade to kill and skin game far more often than he will have used it to assassinate people. The same likely applies for his grandfather [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag Edward]] (minus the hide-and-seek).
