* In the original ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'''s Nod campaign, [[TheDragon Seth]] eventually has enough of your winning streak and tries to get you killed. When his first attempt to do so via UriahGambit fails, he goes for a more direct approach and orders you to go to the US on a mission so secret that not even Kane knows about it yet because ''"power shifts quickly in the Brotherhood"''. He then reveals that he wants you to attack the Pentagon head-on - but as he's in the middle of briefing you, Seth [[KilledMidSentence suddenly gets shot in the head from off-screen]]. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Kane then walks into the screen and casually tosses Seth's body out of the chair while quipping]] ''"Yes, power shifts more quickly than some people think."'' before occupying the chair himself and proceeding to give you the real briefing for your upcoming mission.

** Played more tragically, the FinalBoss of the [[KillEmAll genocide run]], [[spoiler:[[BewareTheSillyOnes Sans]] the lazy skeleton]] will ask you [[spoiler:if it's possible for someone to be a good person if they just try hard enough, no matter how evil they may be. Before you can give a reply, he laughs. Of course, if you recall back, these were his brother Papyrus' last words before you murdered him, YouBastard. Like Papyrus, he'll also offer you a CooldownHug if you accept his Mercy: if you accept, well, ''[[ISurrenderSuckers get]] [[OneHitKill dunked]] [[HaveANiceDeath on]]''.]]

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in ''VideoGame/Fallout4''. The Vault-Tec salesman gives you Vault-Tec's slogan of "Prepare for the Future!" at the beginning of the game. Later, you can meet him 200 years later after you've been [[HumanPopsicle cryo-frozen]] and he's been turned into a [[TheAgeless Ghoul]]. If you pass a speech check, the formerly BrokenBird salesman will work for you, and deliver the slogan in a new, positive direction.

* Every time you die in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', someone with a deep VoiceGrunt tells you (or whatever you named yourself) not to give up and to [[ArcWords stay determined]]. At first, most people would brush off the encouragement as nothing more than the game's generic way to convince you not to give up. However, it takes on a whole new meaning once you learn who is behind the voice and then some. [[spoiler: Said voice belongs to Asgore, the King of Monsters, who you meet near the end of the game to do battle with. A part of his battle theme borrows the Game Over theme, further signifying that the voice was his. If you get to the True Laboratory on the GoldenEnding path, you can find several video tapes showing Asgore telling you to not give up and stay determined. Later on, you discover that the protagonist you were controlling wasn't the one you named; the character you gave a name to was the first Fallen Child that Toriel and Asgore adopted and when the child fell sick, Asgore kept giving the child words of encouragement to stay determined.]]

* Early in ''VideoGame/FarCry3BloodDragom'', Rex will say twice that it's "Lights out for Sloan", modifying it the second time when he remembers that he's already used that one-liner once. [[spoiler:Sloan says it to Rex at the end while preparing to execute him, then Rex ''inverts'' it after overcoming his own programming and blasting Sloan through the chest with the Killstar.]]
