* In one town in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'', there is a small plot of land being used for crops, in the middle of which is a sign saying "do not step on the crops". Naturally, due to its placement and the way you read signs in DragonQuest games, the only way to read it is to step on the crops.

* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2'', signs are used to indicate where animal friend sections end. Trying to cross the sign while riding one (or assuming the form of one) will cause the poor creature to inexplicably disappear and provide an extra life balloon.
