* In Japanese media, it's much easier to make subtle puns that are actually pretty funny because of how Japanese characters can mean one word in Kanji, but in a different character system, like say Kana, or even just a different Kanji, it can mean something completely different. To further complicate things, two different character systems can use the same words with the same pronunciation, but mean two different things, and would have to be deciphered by writing it out to actually ''see'' the difference. Basic example: the word "ame" means, depending on the kanji, either "rain", "candy" or "heaven". While candy might still be told apart from the rest in speech (having slightly different stress), it is virtually impossible to tell which of them is meant when writing it in Romaji or Kana.

** Jon, NCS, ''and'' LetsPlay/{{Lucahjin}} all separately have Twitch emotes of Chugga's face, intended to be used in response to a pun being made. He is basically synonymous with puns as far as they (and their fans) are concerned.

* King Kai from ''DragonBallZ'' is a [[PhysicalGod cosmic ruler]] and martial arts master who LOVES to make terrible puns at any given opportunity, so much so that a requirement for receiving his [[EccentricMentor training]] is to be able to come up with one that will make him laugh.

* Robotnik in ''Literature/SonicTheHedgehogInRobotniksLaboratory'' just can't keep himself from adding the word "egg" into anything that begins with a E. What's worse is that this is infectious and everything ends up doing it, including the author.

* ''VideoGame/AkaSeka'': Funya no Yasuhide, full stop. He either makes homophone puns or make words out of the last syllables of sentences in a manner similar to [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Otsuu]], and he does it so annoyingly frequently and ''badly'' he almost always ends up [[LaughingAtYourOwnJokes laughing at his own jokes]].

* JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf use puns as insults all the time, along with a lot of {{Literal Metaphor}}s. (Sometimes both at once.)

** The singing tomato in the fridge in the episode "Interesting" is this trope in concentrated form: its single, short appearance consists entirely of a song made out of tomato puns.

* ''StarWars'' [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]]:
** Jacen Solo, during the "Young Jedi Knights" series. He gets better afterward. Or rather, ''[[FaceHeelTurn worse]].'' The ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'' series makes good use of this; in the final book, where Jacen has completed his FaceHeelTurn and called himself Darth Caedus, and is the unquestionable BigBad, every chapter starts with a horrible pun, quoted from Jacen, age 14-16.
** Also [[Literature/XWingSeries Wes Janson]], all the time unless things are ''really'' bad. (And Wedge, after that [[spoiler: night with Iella.]] But can you blame him?) Fittingly, [[spoiler: while Jacen is turning evil, Janson (via Wedge) calls him on it, citing the loss of his humor as a symptom.]]
