** In an elevator conversation, [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Wrex]] can ask Kaidan whether he would win if he fought Shepard, and Kaidan replies that as Shepard is his superior officer, he can't imagine them fighting; this also implies that [[BadAss Wrex]] believes that Shepard would win against him. In the third game, [[spoiler:Shepard can (and potentially must, depending on how many mistakes you've made) kill Kaidan during the standoff with Udina]]. To make this a two-fer, [[spoiler:Shepard can also be forced to kill Wrex at one of two points in the game- if you fail to talk him down on Virmire or if you sabotage the genophage cure]].

* The UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance SP is known for one particularly odd design choice: The lack of a dedicated headphone jack; players have to instead use a headphone adapter that goes into the charger port, and the official adapter doesn't permit charging and headphone use att the same time, though there are third-party forked adapters that permit both. This concept can seem a little uncomfortable with the release of the iPhone 7, which is rather controversial for having no dedicated headphone jack, requiring an adapter that goes into the Lightning port for non-Bluetooth, non-Lightning headphones, and requiring a complex set of no less than ''three'' cables to permit charging and conventional headphones at the same time.

* Meta-example relating to KatawaShoujo: the Act 1 preview prominently featured deaf-mute Shizune and her sign language interpreter/VoiceForTheVoiceless Misha as close friends. Naturally, they were a popular pairing in discussion and fanart. [[spoiler: Come the full release, Shizune's route reveals Misha is in love with Shizune, and confessed before the start of the game. Shizune [[ShipSinking rejected her]], but offered continued friendship anyway. The ongoing consequences of this form much of the tension within the route's plot. Many shippers shat bricks.]]

* ''GuildWars: Eye of the North'' introduces Gadd, a vitriolic and insufferable genius who is unrelentingly hard on his son, Vekk. Vekk declares he'd sooner push Gadd off a bridge if they didn't need Gadd's help. Not long after, Gadd is killed during battle and a grieving Vekk scatters his ashes from a bridge.

* An in-universe example in ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaV''. Plutia mistaking a CPU Memory for candy? Amusing. [[spoiler: Blanc, Peashy, and Rei all making similar mistakes? One tragedy after the next.]] The world sucking outside of Lowee until Planeptune and Lastation came along? Interesting take on how things played out in real life. [[spoiler: That's not [[TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 the only thing]] taken from real life.]]

** "This is all Joker's fault! What a tool he was! I have all spend all day computing pi because he plugged in the Overlord!" Cue the Overlord DLC where [[spoiler: David, who's been forcibly plugged into a VI and kept alive with machines, spends all day computing Pi as part of an experiment conducted by his own brother. And to just add cruelty, he's autistic and has to communicate with hundreds of geths at the same time, which is torture to him.]] Untill Shepard rolled along, [[AndIMustScream he had no way of freeing himself]] and the "MAKE IT STOP!" screams were both TearJerker and terrifying at the same time.
