* Marisa Kirisame of the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series doesn't steal things. She borrows them. Without permission. For the rest of her life.

** Also, regardless of what kinda first impression [[RobeAndWizardHat her clothes]] might leave you with, Marisa totally isn't a witch. She is, in fact, a {{miko}}/nurse/merchant/burglar. And her name is [[TheRival Reimu Hakurei.]]
** Yukari Yakumo is the one responsible for humans being spirited away. So if someone disappears without her involvement, they haven't been "spirited away" and she'd appreciate it if you referred to their disappearance using some other terminology.

** Somewhat justified in her dislike for the name of Alt Eisen, as it's name is German for "Old/Scrap Iron" was partly picked as a means of mocking Radom's stubborn refusal to use alien Extra-Over Technology, and preference to sticking with the somewhat aging Gespenst design that she helped develop in the first place, when the military brass and other manufacturers wanted more advanced technology instead. Not that Radom didn't have justifiable concerns, given her ex-husband was nearly killed due to a serious malfunction of an Extra Over Tech based engine in the planned next gen Huckebeins that halted their development for some time.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2'', Saix insists that the other Organization members refer to Xion as "it" rather than "she," showing his contempt for her [[spoiler:as a replica]].

* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'':
** In both ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', Phil of Olympus Coliseum insists that Sora, Donald and Goofy are not yet heroes, only ''junior'' heroes. He eventually has to give it up when the gods themselves declare the group heroes, as evidenced by the stars in the sky.

* Zorbak is an "ebil" moglin {{Necromancer}} present in several original ArtixEntertainment games, and he frequently corrects people who call him evil. What, exactly, seperates evil from "ebil" is up for interpretation, but, if the little blue troublemaker's actions are anything to go by, being "ebil" seems to mean being more a StupidEvil JerkAss than a real villain in one's own right.

Added DiffLines:

** Dremora are an intelligent race of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] who are most commonly found in the service of [[DestroyerDeity Mehrunes Dagon]] as his LegionsOfHell. Though they are commonly referred to as "Dremora", they prefer to identify themselves as "The Kyn", which translates to "The People" in the [[ConLang Daedric language]]. This is because they consider themselves superior and more intelligent than the other lesser Daedra, which they see as little more than mindless beasts.

** Illium does not allow "[[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil slavery]]", it allows "indentured servitude". Though from what hear about the rules and terms of the practice, indentured servitude actually is the more accurate term.

* Dex from ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' wishes you to know that it's "The Carnales" or "Los Carnales", not "The Los Carnales", as [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment "los" means "the" in Spanish]].
** And in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', The Boss is ''very'' instant that they are a "Puckish Rogue" and not more negative terms like "Sociopath". Which makes sense since The Boss cares too much about the other Saints to be a genuine sociopath.

** In ''Videogame/SaintsRowTheThird'', Phillipe Loren is called a "French fuck" by the Boss due to his obvious French accent, only for Loren to say "Please. I am Belgian". Once Gat does it again, Phillipe goes into killing mode, confirming it to be a BerserkButton.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' an aspiring Orc "knight" named Mazoga insists that the player call her "Sir Mazoga" or similar, and will get angry if the player does not. Depending on dialog choices and how the player handles the associated quest, she eventually realizes she's being a pompous jerk.
