* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena'', the player generally had to get through several riddles to access each piece of the Staff of Chaos.

Since Boggles is introduced at his own [[TheFunInFuneral funeral]], only one riddle is ever heard, presented to his nemesis Captain Sunshine during the eulogy. Nonetheless, Boggles manages to give the answer himself; it is "jack in the box", and his corpse was spring-loaded into the casket.
