* The re-recording of [[Music/MotorHead Ace of Spades]] included in [[VideoGame/RockBand Rock Band 2]] and [[VideoGame/GuitarHero Guitar Hero Metallica]] changes the lyric "I don't wanna live forever, and don't forget the joker" to "I don't wanna live forever, that's right babe, but apparently I am". This became very uncomfortable after frontman Lemmy Kilmister's death from prostate cancer in December 2015.

** 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.
