* ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' '''''([[SelfDemonstratingArticle Metal Gear!?]])''''' ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Solid]]'' has its protagonist, Solid Snake, repeating everything that whoever is telling him about something, or going "huh?". It is more or less lifted from the character he was based on, "Snake" Plissken from ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'', who had a tendency to do the same. Used less in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3 Snake Eater]]'' (although when the name "Metal Gear" is mentioned for the first and only time, of ''course'' Naked Snake has to say it), but still pretty abundant. Snake's voice actor, DavidHayter, made fun of this tendency in a podcast, in which he joked that most of his dialogue was "repeating whatever everyone else says but with a question mark on the end." This happens less often in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'', though it's less because Snake understands what people are saying and more because he just doesn't care. So, rather than saying "So it'll make me smarter, huh?", he'd say, "Okay, so... what now?". This was {{lampshaded}} in ''Metal Gear AC!D2'', when an amnesiac Snake accesses a terminal and comes across data on the eponymous machine.

* Every single acquired weapon in ''VideoGame/MegaMan7'' leads to an exchange between Mega Man and Dr. Light: [[CaptainObvious "The Scorch Wheel shoots a flaming wheel, right?" "Yes, and it can also be used to burn things!"]]
** [[http://www.rockmanpm.com/?p=original/rockman7/labtalk At least in the Japanese version]], sometimes Roll or Auto will appear instead to provide some comic relief.

** Zero does this quite often in ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'', along with gratuitous use of ellipses. In his defense, after a CryonicsFailure before the first game and a year in exile after that, he probably is very out of it.

* In ''Literture/OneQEightyFour'', pretty much half of Tengo's spoken dialogue is parrot exposition, often word-for-word. It's why the book is a thousand pages long.
