* In 4X game ''VideoGame/GalacticCivilisations'' there is a yearly report which tells you how good you rank compared to everyone, including some text about it. One of the possible texts lampshades the immense population growth of up to 150% per year by telling the player: 'Critics say that there is no way that people are being born so fast, which is true. Really these are just people who got richer due to our economic growth and started paying taxes.
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''.

* 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.

* 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}}.

GLaDOS mocks you openly when she reveals herself.]]

** ''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.
