* ''VideoGame/SystemShock 2'' put this trope to good use. Every single formerly human enemy had dialogue that mainly served as a reminder that they were out there, stalking you. The enemies would beg you to run away or stay hidden, or in an alien voice simply say the opposite... and some would cry and bemoan their fate.

* ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'' contained a lot of Enemy Chatter that the player could listen in on if he snuck up on enemies, and each level contained a drunk grunt somewhere which provided some of the game's funniest dialogue if the player stays around long enough to listen to the whole thing.

* VideoGame/{{Drakengard3}} has these from soldiers either shouting to get Zero, as well as soldiers [[BringMyBrownPants fudging]] themselves at the sight of the carnage she's unleashing upon waves of soldiers and monsters.

->'''[[SmashMook Thug #1]]:''' You're dreaming, Louie. Turner's Law clearly stipulates that ultra high band energy interactions are inherently unstable. You can't just energize a quark and expect it to act like a tachyon.\\
'''Thug #2:''' All I'm saying is that Heisenberg clearly postulates- oh no! [[PlayerCharacter Hero-types]]! Get in character!\\

* The ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' series had both kinds; the soldiers in [[VideoGame/{{Half-Life1}} the original game]] were ''meant'' to be considered faceless enemies for the player to kill, though they had dialog of their own, such as one who gripes that he "killed twelve dumbass scientists and not one of them fought back", or two soldiers wondering if Freeman sabotaged the experiment and angrily muttering about how Freeman had been "killing [their] buddies", and that "he will definitely pay." VideoGame/HalfLife2 also contains instances of chatter, mostly from Civil Protection officers who radio for backup when attacked, but also have stock radio dispatch broadcasts playing in the first part of the game.

* ''VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2013'' has a limited number of encounters with human enemies. The yakuza curse at you, becoming increasingly frantic as they are killed off while the police give increasingly frantic radio reports. Both have special lines from the last survivors of the squad.

** Amusingly, there's a pair of non-aggressive enemies in the early Deadmines dungeon who do nothing ''but'' act as enemy chatter [[FailedASpotCheck not noticing the wholesale slaughter of their fellows]]. [[NotSoDifferent Most players don't notice them either]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Berzerk}}'', one of the first {{Arcade Game}}s to feature speech, has RoboSpeak voices urging the robots to attack and destroy the player-controlled humanoid. The voice also taunts the humanoid, calling him a "chicken" if he leaves a room without destroying all the robots first.

* Most quests in ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' have unique enemy chatter, especially when the player is undetected and the [=NPCs=] are left to go about their business. Some of it builds atmosphere, some contains tidbits of information about the game world, and some, well...

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has a more sophisticated enemy chatter system than ''3''. You'll sneak into Raider and Gunner encampments and overhear the characters have entire conversations. In an example of this trope played for tragedy, if you kill one of them in a gunfight, you may hear one of their comrades crying out in grief and horror - that mook has quite probably [[TearJerker just watched their friend or even their lover be mowed down in front of them]].

* In ''VideoGame/BlackAndWhite II'', the enemy leaders keep a running commentary on the development of your cities and their plans to defeat you. The undead god in its ''BattleOfTheGods'' expansion escalates this to continual [[ChewingTheScenery scenery-chewing]] rants about your [[PrepareToDie imminent demise]], even when it has no way of making good on its threats.
