** In Generations II-IV, a "???" type existed which was neutral against all other types. However, this only appeared as the type of the move Curse (which as a status move isn't normally affected by ElementalRockPaperScissors anyway) and in a few other niche situations.[[note]]Using moves like Conversion to become a mono-typed Flying Pokémon, then using Roost (heals the user but removes their Flying type); using Weather Ball in ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'' when the game-exclusive Shadow Sky is in effect; hacking a "??? Plate" into the game and equipping it to Arceus; hacking an unhatched Egg into being usable in battle.[[/note]] In Generation V it was removed (and Curse changed to a Ghost-type move), presumably for the number of headaches it created for the programmers.

*** There is also the final overworld area in the Light World, from where you can enter the final boss and get the ending, which is simply called "?" like the area in ''Ocarina of Time''. It's heavily implied to be the top of Parallel Tower, but it's not confirmed.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', the Ultra Beasts ([[spoiler:extradimensional Pokémon]]), are shown to be this in battle until you catch them and they're registered in your Pokédex. However, they're also given code names by the two International Police agents working on dealing with them, and one even gets referred to by its name during the main course of the game[[note]]Specifically UB-01: Symbiont gets referred to as Nihilego by the villain[[/note]].

** ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' also use question marks to represent non-seen Pokemon in the Pokedex. Similarly, their equivalent/version of [[TheMissingno Missingno.]] is shown as the same icon, or for another kind, two white question marks.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', the technophobic Sam Vimes, when dealing with the local analogue of a smart phone. becomes ''Insert Name Here'' to the demon driving the machine. Sam is too busy/unwilling to read a manual that is five or six times the size of the actual device (never a good sign) and the demon's programming is too inflexible for it to bypass the rote method from the manual. So Vimes remains ''Insert Name Here''.

*** Hasn't stopped people who played the original games from calling him "???" solely because of nostalgia. Though for any who want to enter it correctly, his real name is popularly said to be Silver.

^ Once in MegaManBattleNetwork 3, to stop a haywire tank, you must defeat a trio of viruses named ????. This is to obfuscate that [[spoiler: they are small pieces of Alpha. They have an UndergroundMonkey form in the room with the final boss called Alpha Bug.]]
