* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', the H&H Tools Factory has terminals containing emails between employees. Alan Dalton invites Jenny [=DeSoto=] over for the weekend while his wife is away and suggests she bring her accordion and riding crop. Jenny invents an excuse and instead offers to visit Dobson O'Gill and bring a stovepipe and souveneir moon rocks, and Alan invites Dobson over and asks him to bring rubber sheets and a souvenir elephant trash can.

* The climax (ahem) of ''VideoGame/LeatherGoddessesOfPhobos'' involves handing a list of objects, one by one, to [[spoiler:your sidekick]] so he or she can build a device to save the world. The items are: A common household blender, six feet of rubber hose, a pair of cotton balls, an eighty-two degree angle, a headlight from a 1933 Ford, a white mouse, a photo of Creator/JeanHarlow (or Douglas Fairbanks), and a Cleveland phone book. Despite the game's naughty theme, the objects ''aren't'' used to build some sort of sex toy.

** Also a fair description of ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing''. Many of the items have a logic as to how they fit together, it's just that one wouldn't normally think to combine a skewer and a rat appendix to make a rat appendix kabob.

They attract increasing numbers of people to visit your nation. Eventually your culture becomes so big and grand it subsumes everyone else's, netting one of the game's victory conditions.

* Near the end of year 3 in ''Cake Mania: Back to the Bakery'' one of the level ending screens says that your competitor, Le Chateau Gateaux got in trouble for a publicity stunt involving an elephant, two thousand coffee cakes and a space shuttle. An earlier scheme involved a "Trojan Rabbit" made out of pastry and a pickup truck.
* At one point in ''Chronicles of Albian: The Magic Convention'' the player character encounters a gnome inventor who says all he can tell you about his latest experiment is that it involves a handkerchief, a rabbit, a French horn, a wooden shoe and a barrel of pomegranates.
* See also the crafting into ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''. So you have a manila folder detailing a terrifying conspiracy ("[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Who knew the true purpose of the aglet was so sinister?]]"), a gem, a [[{{Squick}} piece of flesh that is regenerating into something]], and a device that can trace the temporal origin of a given object. With these, you can make your attacks do more damage.
* From ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'':
-->'''Panther King''': Don't be too long.\\
'''Professor''': Ah...I will be as quick as I can sire.\\
'''Panther King''': Cause you know what happened last time..\\
'''Professor''': [''nervously''] Oh, he. Only too well, only too well. I vill go now.\\
'''Panther King''': [[BadBoss I don't want to have to get the duct tape out again.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' mixes this trope with a bit of ''Main/ArsonMurderAndJaywalking''.
-->'''High Overseer Campbell''': Now, to business. What would you say happened last night?\\
'''General Curnow''': To be honest, I'm not even sure! My men, your Overseers, a few whores, maybe a little too much ale. One harmless prank with a runaway chicken, and ten minutes later, Treaver's Alley is a sea of blood and teeth.\\
'''High Overseer Campbell''': I almost wish I'd been there.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'':
** While Josephine is recalling her youthful misadventures with Leliana, she advises you to flee if you ever encounter her holding a twine ball, a measuring stick, and a handkerchief.
** The NoodleIncident in the Inquisitor's past was apparently scandalous enough to begin with, but how did a rabbit become involved?
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'':
** Due to the nature of the item system, some descriptions of events a player does, especially in adventure mode, can seem like this. Even if the character is a master thrower and picks up whatever they can find, the descriptions can just be confusing.
--->Man, this is just like that time with an bronze giant, two whales, some sand, that flaming bush, and the king's gaurd. Well, actually, I don't have camelskin bag this time.
** Then there's strange moods, which will leave you curious about what they intend to do with a lump of tetrahedrite, two cut gemstones, some alpaca wool, a wolf skull, a mussel shell and some platinum bars.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', the required offering to begin Sheogorath's Daedric quest consists of a spool of yarn, a head of lettuce, and a lesser soul gem (hey, he ''is'' the [[MadGod Daedric Prince of Madness]]).
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'':
*** The start of Peryite's Daedric quest has one of his followers (a Khajiit named Kesh the Clean) ask for a flawless ruby, a silver ingot, a deathbell flower, and some vampire dust to concot a mixture whose vapors the Dragonborn must inhale to meet the said Daedric Prince.
*** A note you find in Haelga's Bunkhouse thanks [[ReallyGetsAround Haelga]], a devotee of Dibella, the Aedric Goddess of Beauty (who is also associated with the [[LoveGoddess carnal and sexual aspects of love]]) for one of the most wonderful nights of the writer's life, mentioning skillful body manipulation while wearing Daedric boots and...a trout. In her bedroom, one can also find [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar leather strips and a horker tusk]]. [[HeadTiltinglyKinky Okay then...]]
* ''Videogame/FallenLondon'': During one repeatable storyline, you can hire the services of an assassin with a reputation for CruelAndUnusualDeath, who is noted to have done "something unspeakable to the Duke of Kent with a pair of bricks". Your character knows this well enough that, if they spot her taking out a cigar and a cigar-clipper, they immediately assume the worst and run terrified.
* The materials necessary to make the custom weapons in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' can get like this. "Let's see... I need a crutch, a steam gauge assembly, a pressure cooker, a fission battery and about a hundred railroad spikes."
* [[https://www.youtube.com/user/ManyATrueNerd Many A True Nerd]]'s ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' runs often include commentary on the juxtaposition of items that can't interact with one another, such as a tricycle and a harmonica in a brothel (they must accommodate some very specific requests) and a vacuum cleaner and hockey mask in Elder Lyons' briefcase ("sounds like a good weekend").
* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', the H&H Tools Factory has a terminal which contains an email from a man to his mistress, inviting her over for the weekend while his wife is away and suggesting she bring her rubber sheets and souvenir elephant trash can.
** In the ''Old World Blues'' expansion, during a conversation with Doctor 8 about some undefined activity, you have the option to tell him that you usually just use a can of Cram and some duct tape.
* The climax (ahem) of ''VideoGame/LeatherGoddessesOfPhobos'' involves handing a list of objects, one by one, to [[spoiler:your sidekick]] so he or she can build a device to save the world. The items are: A common household blender, six feet of rubber hose, a pair of cotton balls, an eighty-two degree angle, a headlight from a 1933 Ford, a white mouse, a photo of Creator/JeanHarlow (or Douglas Fairbanks), and a Cleveland phone book. Despite the game's naughty theme, the objects ''aren't'' used to build some sort of sex toy.
** In one room, the player sees a laboratory set up for experiments that are too outrageous to describe. Even if you play the game in Lewd Mode, the most you'll get told is that "it involves several feet of plastic tubing, a lot of lubricants, and a yak."
* From this very wiki's CherryTapping page: ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''[='s=] Ganondorf can be defeated by: A butterfly net, an empty bottle, nuts, and a fishing pole.
* Dr. Fred of ''VideoGame/ManiacMansion'' tells his son, Weird Ed, that the [[BigBad Meteor]] needs to borrow Ed's hamster and an electric cattle prod. We never learn what the Meteor intended with either of them.
* A knife, a photograph, a broken vase, a folder with documents, a watch and a cellphone... [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] only needs three out of these objects to prove his opponent guilty of [[NoodleIncident a never addressed crime]] in ''VideoGame/MarvelVSCapcom3''.

* ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'':
** ''The Secret of VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'':
*** The hero asks the friendly natives of the titular island about the whereabouts of his true love who has been kidnapped by a ship crewed by ghost pirates. Unfortunately, it didn't come out quite right.
---->'''Guybrush Threepwood''': I'm looking for thirty dead guys and a woman.\\
'''Meathead''': Whoah, I'm not sure what you're planning there but count us out!
*** What requires a pot on a fire, wine, gunpowder, a rubber chicken with a pulley down the middle, breakfast cereals, ink, a jolly roger flag, breathmints, and some cinnamon? [[note]]Answer]]Going to Monkey Island via voodoo spell[[/note]].
*** The cutscene-of-sorts in the secret room at Elaine's mansion where we don't see what's happening but the menu keeps telling us disturbing things about wax lips and a llama...
** In ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'' chapter 1, Guybrush misleads a guy by musing about how he's going to get past an ancient stone door, and mutters about going to gather "Several sticks of dynamite, a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle, and some sort of ''[[Film/GalaxyQuest rudimentary lathe]]''..."
* Although alternatives are available, commonly used "Thing Stickers" for the final battle of ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar'' include a fan, a refrigerator, a roll of sticky tape, a pair of tailor's scissors and a stereo music player.
* ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory'': [[BoisterousBruiser The Heavy]] from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' reveals that he has a [=PhD=] in Russian literature. When asked if it is useful in [[FirstPersonShooter his line of work]], Heavy claims, "More than you think..."
* A potential conversation in ''VideoGame/PokerNight2'' involves [[VideoGame/{{Borderlands}} Claptrap]] claiming that he had the weirdest dream last night.
-->'''[[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Brock Samson]]:''' Did it involve Charles Manson, Rita Moreno, and a duck?\\
'''Claptrap:''' No, but...\\
'''Brock:''' Then it wasn't the weirdest dream.
* ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIV'' has this in ''The Ultimate Joke'', a joke so funny it's guaranteed to make ''anyone'' who hears it become paralyzed with laughter on hearing it the first time (it is said to work only once). The joke is never told, the narrator (none other than John Rhys Davies) only mention that it is "...the one with the wizard ''(chuckles)'' and the farmer's daughter...''(further chuckling)'' It's a killer!" when you opt to tell the joke [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome to the BigBad, so he's stuck laughing and you can kill him with a spear]]]].
* In ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxHitTheRoad'':
** The player never gets to see what's inside the other doors at [[RealityIsOutToLunch the Mystery Vortex]].
--->'''Max:''' "Look at all the cheese!"\\
'''Sam:''' "I didn't know they could do that!"
** The final puzzle of the game is solved with [[spoiler: a dinosaur tooth, a pillow soaked in hair tonic, a re-filled souvenir snow globe, and a zucchini in the shape of John Muir's head.]]
* In Season 1, episode 5 of ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' when the duo find Sybil [[JustOneMoreLevel addicted to "Reality 2.0".]]
-->'''Sam:''' You've been playing that game for an entire week.\\
'''Max:''' She's an addict, Sam. Time for an intervention. We'll need some cocktail peanuts, an iron maiden, oh, and some handkerchiefs. This is going to be emotional.
* What if someone made this trope into an entire ''game?'' World, meet ''VideoGame/{{Scribblenauts}}''. ''Scribblenauts,'' world.
-->"I got through that level with a chain, a FairyGodmother, a tranqulizer gun, and a baseball bat. You?"
** Also a fair description of ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing''. Many of the items have a logic as to how they fit together, it's just that one wouldn't normally think to combine a skewer and a rat appendix to make a rat appendix kabob.
* In one of the runs in ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns: Dragonfall'', you read a message where an employee wonders what the research team need with a bulk order of gags, restraints, and five hundred litres of hydrochloric acid. She's somewhat creeped out by it, and probably for a good reason.
* Based on some snippets of the Court Summons in ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}} and the Pirate's Curse'', the order to cut Shantae's hair involved scissors, a jigsaw, and a goat mouth.
* ''VideoGame/SpiralKnights'': a memo on a devilite workstation in the danger mission "Heart of Ice" asks the employee to explain why he needs "999 'Open minded' devilites, 50 barrels of 'whatever frostifurs eat,' and a 'towering pillar of everfrost' and 'all the frozen souls it brings forth.'"
* One of the medic's quotes from ''VideoGame/StarCraftII''.
-->'''Medic''': Here's some lotion, a comb, and a blowtorch. Good luck!
* In ''VideoGame/TonicTrouble'', Doc constructs a catapult out of six each of the following items: springs, propellors, jumping stones, domino stones and piggy banks. While in this case, we do know what he does with them, we don't ever get to see ''how.''
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' uses this trope in several of the female Draenei's 'flirt' and 'silly' emotes, including one involving butter and jumper cables and another is a recipe involving 2 gnomes and 2 eggs. Unfortunately, the one asking about whether [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQjlimIvx1M gnomes have a vibrate setting]] didn't make the final cut.
** In one scenario, you are involved with a group of Goblins trying to open a huge vault door with a powerful explosive they implrovise with the tools they have around. Most of the tools, even if not realistic, make sense (fire elemental cores, dragon egg, a battery), but we're never explained what they need the Pool Pony for. But apparently, it's "the most vital ingredient".
* ''VideoGame/ZakMcKrackenAndTheAlienMindbenders'' is largely based around using utterly bizarre items (such as a crayon, a kazoo and an egg) for the purpose of saving the world from aliens.
