* 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:

* In ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Chaos Theory'', one mission begins with Sam Fisher saying "Don't tell me... Three alarms and the mission is over." to which his superior, Lambert, replies "Of course not. [[ThisIsReality This is no video game]], Fisher." This is taking a jab at the previous games in which missions would frequently end after 3 alarms.

* In ''RuneFactory3'', one of the characters comments that amnesia is extremely common, lampshading the fact that, in all 3 games, the protagonist loses his memory.
* In the fantasy MMO ''RuneScape'', there is a saga in which the player walks in the shoes of Thok, master of Dungeoneering. During the saga, Thok battles his way through dungeons filled with enemies, some of which attempt to run and exit through a door which can only be opened by killing all of the guardians in that room. One of them remarks "The door won't open until we're dead? What kind of crazy security system is that?!"

** Also in ''Spirit Tracks'', the mailman is all set to open your mail and read it to you....then he brings up that [[TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass they used to do that]] but people complained, so now they just give you the mail to read yourself.

* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Banjo-Kazooie}} Banjo-Tooie]]'', during the final world of the game Banjo enters what appears to be an empty room. He remarks that there's nothing in the room and they should leave, but Kazooie cleverly points out that the music has changed, meaning a boss is present somewhere in the room.

* In ''KingdomHearts'', at first, only Sora, [[spoiler:Riku and The King]] have the ability to wield a Keyblade. Later on, in Kingdom Hearts II, Roxas [[spoiler:and Kairi]] can wield one (Hell, Roxas can wield TWO!). In that Game's secret ending and ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth by Sleep]]'', it is also revealed that Terra, Ventus, Aqua, and Master Eraqus can wield them, [[spoiler: as can Master Xehanort and Vanitas.]] Not only that, [[spoiler:Yen Sid is revealed to be a retired Keyblade Master]]. And at the end of ''[[KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance KH3D]]'', [[spoiler: Lea is able to weld a Keyblade]]. There's even a world full of abandoned Keyblades at the end of the game, suggesting that at some point, there has been THOUSANDS of people able to wield the Keyblade. I think Braig summed it up best:
