** In the original ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', a lengthy description by Snake's mentor about how to walk without making noise ends with Snake frustratingly saying "I... can't do it!" referencing the fact that even though the game was designed for use with the Playstation's analog joystick-equipped DualShock controller, it's not possible to walk slowly in the game. In the Gamecube remake ''Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes'', it was possible to walk slowly and thus Snake's response to the instruction is changed accordingly.

** Persona 4 has received a lot of flak from people who feel as if its popularity has helped it become a massive [[Main/CashCowFranchise]] for Atlus, resulting in a lot of spin-off games and other media. As of [[VideoGame/Persona4DancingAllNight]] (the '''fourth''' spin-off/sequel), it's at least nice to know that the characters in-game are aware of it as well.

* In the ''TheBardsTale'' games, the character is featured repeatedly speaking to the narrator in debate of what he says, or simply because he feels it not necessary, commenting at various points on subjects like [[ImpossibleItemDrop why wolves were carrying valuable items]], or [[KleptomaniacHero the ethics of looting other people's belongings]].

* One part in ''{{Metro2033}}'' has a Nazi soldier about to execute the player. [[TalkingIsAFreeAction He says something witty and just]] ''[[TalkingIsAFreeAction stands there]]'' until [[BigDamnHeroes a Ranger kills him.]] The Ranger then says "... one thing I like about the bad guys, [[JustBetweenYouAndMe there's always a lot of discussion before they get around to pulling the trigger]]".
* In the final chapter of ''{{Drakengard}}'', after you are convinced they have [[MindScrew no more weird left to shovel in your face]], the FinalBoss mission's description says "Reality breaks down, and the fantasy begins." And then it gets even weirder.

* Near the beginning of the ''AnakshaFemaleAssassin'' Mini-Adventure "A New Threat," Anaksha has just been asked for some parts to make a taser so that the owner of a recently-robbed shop is confident enough to open it again so that Anaksha can get a battery for her new cell phone. Having been through two previous Mini-Adventures where she had to do a ChainOfDeals to get what she wanted, Anaksha knows immediately what's coming:
