** There's also an odd example in the narrative of ''Shinovi Versus''. Using dark powers to force your will on someone is "brainwashing", but apparently using your influence to take in young orphans with a specific and tragic background and then raising them in complete isolation to foster a fanatical, homicidal hatred for a specific group is not. [[spoiler:Could have something to do with Dougen being the BigBad and Kurokage feeling guilty about his actions on his deathbed and asking Honzo to deliberately undermine what he'd done, but the narrative is suspiciously forgiving of a "Good Shinobi's" outrageously selfish plan. Of course, [[GreyAndGrayMorality that might be the point]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Sam and Max|FreelancePolice}}: The Devil's Playhouse'', Sam and Max argue over [[NotUsingTheZWord what to call the Sam clone army]]; Sam insists on "Samulacra", and Max insists on "Dogglegangers". This develops into a RunningGag. Amusingly, when playing as Sam and mousing over one of the clones, the text indicating the name of the object reads "Samulacra", [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything but when playing as Max it reads "Dogglegangers"]].

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', it is revealed that all quarians refer to the leader of a ship as "captain", regardless of their actual rank: while Shepard never made the rank of captain, they are still responsible for the lives of the crew of the ''Normandy'', hence, Captain Shepard.

* In ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition'', Dalish of the Bull's Chargers insists that she's an "archer", despite it being very obvious that she's an apostate mage. She also claims that her magic staff is a "bow". The other Chargers go along with this to protect Dalish from people who don't like apostates (which is pretty much everybody).
