* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'' has a lot of these. Your seeds come from the Bloom and Doom Seed Co. Then you have plants with names such as Peashooter, Repeater, Wall Nut, and Cherry Bomb. The Doom Shroom makes a ''mushroom cloud'' when you use it. PopCap clearly had a lot of fun naming stuff in this game.

Added DiffLines:

* A majority of the characters in ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' have punny names, some translated from the Japanese language. For example, the Basu sisters are called Inkyu and Sakyu, which are puns for incubus and succubus. One of the classmates, Oka Ruto (which is a pun for "occult"), is trying to prove that there's something supernatural about them. Notice anything here?
