** The manual even responds to Murphy's wisecracks using textboxes, although he never acknowledges that the manual is cheeing him out. So either Murphy just doesn't care, he's skipping past those parts, or these textboxes are only visible to the player. Needless to say the fourth wall has a big open door through it that doesn't close until the tutorial stage is over.

* ''VideoGame/{{HalfLife1}}'' has this of course with the holographic woman giving you primers on basic actions and specifically mentioning button presses. Curiously, in the expansion pack ''Opposing Force'' you get to visit the wreckage of the training area and the hologram is playing, although the tutorials she recites are completely in-character and make no mention of button presses.

* Many recent ''HarvestMoon'' games feature a very lengthy introduction, often peppered with various tutorials regarding game mechanics. Sometimes, these tutorials are optionalů sometimes, not so much. The information is usually often kept on a bookshelf in your character's house, as well, for later reference. Unlocking new things to do will also often lead to more tutorials (like buying an animal, planting a crop, unlocking a paddy, etc).

* The tutorials from the ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' series mention button names in-character, and no one bats an eye. It's gotten to the point that the oft repeated "Jump and press the Circle Button," tutorial has achieved something of a memetic position with both the creators and the fandom.

During a podcast with the three main actors doing an ad-lib heist, Bentley says the plan is that he'll be in the van while Murray will head in front and Sly will "Jump and press the Circle Button".

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass Phantom Hourglass]]'': "Oh, do you know how to walk?"

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass Phantom Hourglass]]'': Hourglass]]'' has the hilarious "Oh, do you know how to walk?"walk?", due to the touchscreen being used for movement, rather than the D-pad.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has a few minor {{NPC}}s, mostly Froggits in the tutorial area, that try to explain some of the finer points of the game's controls, without necessarily understanding what they're talking about. More JustForFun/{{egregious}}ly, Papyrus explains the special action controls for his BossBattle while you fight him. And of course, there's Flowey, the first character you meet, who knows far more about the game mechanics than those other characters combined, but happens to be more than a bit of a lying bastard.

** Played with in ''{{VideoGame/Portal2}}'' where Wheatley asks you to say apple, and the usual onscreen prompt tells you that the space bar makes Chell speak. Instead, you jump, and Wheatley concludes that you've had massive brain damage.
