* With [[HurricaneOfPuns so many puns]] in ''{{Munchkin}}'', it would be astonishing if there ''wasn't'' one you didn't get now and then. This troper's younger sister one day just spontaneously realised the pun in "Fire Arms". This troper's version involved picking up the "Lust Monster" card and then suddenly remembering the ''D&D'' "Rust Monster". -- CountDorku
** The Sushi Knife of Doom in Munchkin Cthulhu. At first you wonder why a sushi knife gets to be so doomy. Then you realize that nearly all sushi is composed of seafood, and that many of Lovecraft's monsters ''were'' reminiscent of sea creatures (he had a deep fear of the sea) and that in LovecraftLite and [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] works (like, I don't know, ''Munchkin Cthulhu''), eldritch abominations are ''nearly always'' [[EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods tentacle monsters]].
** This troper didn't realize the pun in the females-only weapon "Broad Sword" for two days after first using it.
