* In WebVideo/ResidentEvilAbridged, when Chris confronts Wesker about his betrayal, he asks why Wesker simply didn't leave them behind to be eaten by the [[RaisingTheStakes Cerberi]]. This tense conversation ends up completely derailed as the two spend almost a minute trying to figure out what the plural word for "Cerberus" is before settling on "Zombie Dogs."

* In ''FreemansMind'', Gordon dismisses the idea that the [=HECU=] marines were sent to cover up the disaster by killing everyone inside (Mostly because of FridgeLogic: Black Mesa is a huge facility that employs a lot of people, so what they're doing would be a RevealingCoverUp). Many of his encounters with them involve him yelling over his gunfire that he's on ''their'' side and to ''stop trying to kill him''.

* [[ImageBoards 4chan]]'s [[TabletopGames Traditional Games]] board had a thread whose original post was [[DistressedDamsel a hot naked woman chained to a rock with a dragon approaching]], with no text. The following posts were all about what type of rock it was, whether they could determine the area from the flowers nearby, whether the dragon could fly with its displayed wingspan, and so on, while largely ignoring the naked woman.

* ''WebVideo/EdgarAllanPoesMurderMysteryDinnerParty'':
**When Poe's romantic rival Eddy is found dead, head plunged in his plate of soup, EVERYONE gets their turn at completely misconstruing the events of the evening as Poe desperately tries to state that ThisIsReality. Has to be expected for writers.
*** H.G. Wells thinks it's a game and sticks his head in the soup too.
*** Charlotte Brontë corrects him: [[EntertaininglyWrong they're supposed to wait out turns to stick their head in the soup]].
*** George Eliot imagines that this is the beginning of a game... investigating the nature of the soup.
*** Louisa May Alcott understands that they should rather investigate the murder... for the murder mystery game. She then proceeds to read her character card, and wait untill this somehow solves the murder mystery.
*** Ernest Hemingway thinks everyone has gone mad... the murder mystery game must be solved logically, looking for the motive of the murder.
** Similarly, when they all find out Eddy's character in the game, attributed by a jealous Poe:
