* In a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmOmipBFS64 special movie]] for ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps Plus'', a Yellow Genome Soldier ends up winning a race despite the fact that not only was the race meant for GA-KOs and not humans, but he was supposed to act as a referee/race starter. Campbell and Raiden, under Old Snake's command, then repaid him by shooting two RPG-7s at him while he was savoring the victory.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Monkey Island 2|LeChucksRevenge}}'', the game (nearly) ends with Guybrush maiming [=LeChuck=] and pulling his mask off Scooby-Doo style to reveal...'''his brother, Chucky!''' You can ask him one of two questions regarding his motivation for hunting and torturing you relentlessly across two games. One of the questions garners the response that when you were both children, you stepped on and broke his favorite toy.

* After a developer of video games, Silicon Knights, sued Epic Games over problems with the Unreal engine, Epic countersued for infringement of their Unreal 3 engine, and it ended with Silicon Knights virtually being ordered to be shut down. ''No kidding.'' All the gory details of the outcome can be found [[http://www.darkstation.com/news/silicon-knights-must-destroy-all-unreal-products/ here]]. Particularly noteworthy because this is the first time a video game's ''source code'' was wiped due to a permanent injunction.

* The [[BigBad CEO of [=MegaCo=] Pizza]] in ''VideoGame/NinjaPizzaGirl'' sends hordes of ninja to harrass Gemma at every turn [[spoiler: and later goes even further by burning down the [=PizzaRiffic=] restaurant.]] Why? Because [=PizzaRiffic=] was eroding [=MegaCo Pizza=]'s local profit margins by ''almost 0.01 percent!'' A cutscene shows that the losses in revenue were so tiny that they were first mistaken for a smudge on the earnings chart.

** It's said that in 2075 (two years before the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Great War]]), both the House of Representatives and the Senate voted unanimously to impeach the President of the United States for jaywalking. Whether they had other reasons for doing so or the entire federal government was just being LawfulStupid is left unclear.

** The main story of ''Blood and Wine'' involves this. [[spoiler:Syanna, the sister of Duchess Anna Henrietta of Toussaint, orchestrated [[SerialKiller serial killings]] of a group of knights that mistreated her in the past that were performed by her vampire lover, who she tricked into being an accomplice by leading him to believe she was kidnapped. This was, of course, all part of her master plan to assassinate her sister. Why? [[SarcasmMode For the heinous crime of forgetting about her after she was banished]] (which was all in her imagination, as the Duchess did look for her). And she manages to pull it off in the end unless Geralt gets them to reconcile, and they all live happily ever after (except for the scores of civilians and soldiers that were murdered by a vampire army as a result of [[KarmaHoudini Syanna]]'s actions).]]

** One of the early [[HunterOfMonsters Witcher]] contracts involves exorcising a noonwraith from a well in a destroyed village. After doing some digging, the player can learn that the wraith was the ghost of a woman who insulted the local lord by making fun of his dead son, leading to him sending men to hang her from the well, murder everyone in the village, and raze it to the ground for good measure. The same lord was also said to have once killed a man for not taking his cap off quickly enough.
** In the ''Blood and Wine'' expansion Geralt meets a noblewoman who was cursed to turn into a wight and live alone for nearly a century for the crime of refusing a strange beggar [[spoiler:(who was very heavily implied to be [[SatanicArchetype Gaunter O'Dimm]] in disguise)]] food.

** In another story, during a wager between the Daedric Princes Namira and Sheogorath, they conspired to see which of them could most effectively ensnare a famous artist. Namira used grotesque nightmares, driving him to make terrifying and disgusting art that made him wildly popular through BileFascination. Sheogorath, meanwhile, did [[WinsByDoingAbsolutelyNothing nothing at all]], driving the artist to madness when his inspirations disappeared, and as a result he began creating angry, blasphemous art that insulted the gods and authority figures. Eventually the artist insulted the wrong petty king, who had him publically executed.
