* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'', [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Asuka]] frequently comments on Anime/TheBraveExpressMightGaine characters and robots as being too cheesy, saying it all looks like something that came out of a kids TV show. Meanwhile, [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Akito]], being a fanboy of super robot anime, is very aware of the standard tropes and can accurately predict what will happen next in the Mightgaine storyline.
-->'''Asuka:''' Are you serious? It's like something out of a stupid hero comic or anime!\\
'''Akito:''' That's what's so cool about it.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dragonfable}}'', oh ''VideoGame/{{Dragonfable}}''. If it can be fit in, there's lampshading. All the time. The instances would too many to remember. Or document on Tv tropes.

* In {{Undertale}}, Sans is conversing with [[PlayerCharacter Frisk]] when his brother Papyrus comes prancing down the street. Frisk, of course, probably shouldn't be noticed by Papyrus. So, what does Sans suggest? To hide behind a "conveniently shaped lamp".
* 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.

* GLaDOS enjoys lampshading things you do that are [[StupidityIsTheOnlyOption particulary stupid,]] especially in VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}. After you are separated from Wheatley and land in a shattered corridor, with the only way of proceeding being a portal-friendly wall that makes you fall into a room with a door that reads "GLaDOS Emergency Shutdown (and Cake Dispensary), [[spoiler:it naturally turns out to be a trap. GLaDOS mocks you openly when she reveals herself.]]
--> '''GLaDOS:''' "I really, truly didn't think you'd fall for that. I had a much more elaborate trap planned up ahead for when you got through this easy one.''

** ''Sea of Darkness'' features a somewhat humorous exchange when Dagny's heater breaks. Nancy Drew points out that she could always just go inside to the pub around the corner, but [[ButThouMust Dagny won't budge until Nancy fixes the heater]]. Nancy then of course decides to do just that, and the wiring panel on the heater looks [[https://youtu.be/veFpydp-WWY?t=1m26s absolutely nothing]] like an actual wiring panel. When solved, Nancy points out that it's the strangest wiring panel she's ever seen.

* In the first episode of ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople'', you can find a ''WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad'' page with [[spoiler:a metal detector]]. When you [[spoiler: dig it up]], he remarks something along the lines of "Hey, one of my super cool Teen Girl Squad ideas! [[spoiler:Apparently written on slightly metallic paper!"]]

* ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' has Goombella, after using her tattle ability on a Hammer Bro, complaining about why her book of neverending character info, which lets you know the HP, Attack, Defense and possible special abilities of an enemy, doesn't answer the real question about the Hammer Bros: where do they keep their infinite supply of hammers? The same also goes for Lakitus.

* Both the Master Chief and even more so Cortana in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' are strongly leaning to the [[DeadpanSnarker snarky side]] and make several GenreSavvy comments throughout the games. But the series CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming of Cortana's rescue near the end of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' does not end without fixing up the MoodWhiplash:

** 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.
