Often done by TheWatson. Compare RepeatingSoTheAudienceCanHear, for when we ''can't'' hear the other side of the conversation, and ParrotExpowhat, where the exposition is so shocking, {{sesquipedalian|Loquaciousness}}, or obscure that the other party can't repeat it.

* ''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/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater 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, Creator/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/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots Guns of the Patriots]]'', 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 {{lampshade|Hanging}}d 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.
