* In ''VideoGame{{Undertale}}'', Sans is conversing with [[PlayerCharacter Frisk]] when his brother Papyrus comes prancing down the street. At this moment, Frisk is trying to avoid being noticed by Papyrus. So, what does Sans suggest? To hide behind a "conveniently shaped lamp".

* In ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness, Wakin from Team Snagem says [[spoiler:when attempting to take your Snag Machine]] something along the lines of, "We know you're a great battler. Well, we're not going to have any of that." [[spoiler:He then proceeds to put you to sleep with his Gloom.]]

* The color commentators do this ''all the time'' in the ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'' series.



* Videogame/EarthBound lampshades ''dozens'' of RPG cliches. Understandable, given it's something of an AffectionateParody.

* Team Plasma from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' spend every chance they get pointing out that the game world is based on what amounts to dog fighting, and that it is cruel and wrong. And they are supposed to be the bad guys.
** In COMPLETE spite of several factors that pretty clearly mark Pokemon Battles as something VERY DIFFERENT.
** A Black Belt comments on some of the dangerous gimmicks the gyms have. Naturally, he says this in the gym that has FrictionlessIce going over BottomlessPits.

* ''HouseOfTheDead2'' Very subtle example. At the very beginning of Stage Two a car swerves towards you out of control, if you don't shoot the zombie on the bonnet it passes you and crashes into a shop, killing the man inside (and changing the path you take). ''Just'' before you duck inside you get a glimpse of the shop's name. It's called [[spoiler:Curtains]]. Boom, boom, tish.

* In LuigisMansionDarkMoon, Professor E. Gadd tells Luigi that similar to every other location Luigi's tackled, one of the Professor's Toad assistants had been sent into the mansion. This is followed by the professor commenting on the unlikely odds of this. He then goes on to say the actual likelihood of the situation, then waves it away and says it's not important.

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutShelter'', the "Four Horsemen of the Post-Apocalypse" quest sends you to a newspaper called Weekly Exposition. The editor of the paper literally hangs a lampshade before giving you... well, exposition.

Anyway, we now have XX billion more people paying taxes than last year.'

* AnimalCrossing: So why ''can't'' you simply bring lost items to the police station? And why is it ok to claim any lost item even if it doesn't belong to you? [[http://imgur.com/gallery/sWOuP Copper is wondering the same thing...]]
** In AnimalCrossingNewLeaf, you have only one police officer in your town and he'll claim he's not allowed to leave the station to find a lost item's owner... ''ever''.
