[[AC:VisualNovel]]
* In the common route of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', after completing Refrain and gaining access to the Ecstasy heroine routes, a new choice is added that asks whether or not Riki sees Kanata as hostile or friendly. Her behavior towards the rest of the cast will reflect whatever choice is made, and picking hostile locks the player out of her route.

*** Technically, this is because the translation was idiotic. In the original, Marle's real name is simply her nickname plus a "dia" suffix. So if you name her Marle, it's Marledia. If you try to name her Nadia, she becomes Nadiadia, etc, so it's impossible for her nickname and real name to conflict.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse: Save the Light'', Steven sees one of the Crystal Gems on the beach from a distance. He's then asked which Gem he saw. The player can pick Garnet, Amethyst, or Pearl, and whichever one picked will be the one that's actually there and the first to join the party.

* In the {{Infocom}} mystery game ''Moonmist'', you are asked your favorite color at the beginning of the game. Your response determines the identity of the "ghost." (Adaptive puzzles are a common feature of IF games.)

** In the case of the {{spinoff}} ''Happy Home Designer'', the player character is about to arrive at Nook's Homes for the first day on the job, and Tom Nook has lost the hiring forms. He asks Lottie for the new hire's name, and [[HelloInsertNameHere her answer is determined by the player]]. Nook then has to remember if the new hire is a boy or a girl, as well as what they look like. His mental image is again determined by the player, and it becomes the player character's actual appearance.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' plays this trope fast and loose. In most versions the professor who delivers the opening monologue allows you to name your rival as he "forgets" the name of his own grandson, son, or daughter. [[http://www.vgcats.com/super/?strip_id=1 Parodied here.]]
** ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal]]'' were more egregious: You run into a trainer who just stole his Pokémon from Professor Elm. When you return to the lab, the police ask you his name. Up to this point, the trainer was identified only as "???", even in his ''own dialogue'' where he says [[MyNameIsQuestionMarks "My name's ???."]] The UpdatedRerelease ([=HeartGold/SoulSilver=]) works around it by calling him "Passerby Boy" in the meantime, and when he drops his trainer ID card while walking away, he reprimands your character for reading it, noting that "you saw my name" without revealing what his name is supposed to be.

** Doc comments that he got the 'important bits' of your reconstructive surgery right, no matter how much you change your character from the default. [[FridgeLogic Presumably 'important bits' just meant things like 'number of eyeballs' and 'amount of skull.']] He also says, when you give him your name, "It's not what I would've picked for you, but if that's your name, that's your name."

\n* Just before the end of the play ''Shear Madness'', the action is paused, the house lights come up, and audience members are allowed to question all the suspects and vote on the identity of the murderer. The audience is always "correct" - That is, the play has multiple endings and whoever the audience chooses always turns out to have been the killer.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' has the character quizzed on his name, race, career, and star sign during the opening sequence. Amusingly, due to the different sizes of the races, the camera instantly jumps from the height of 'average human' to whatever your new race is once you've answered your question -- apparently a Bosmer PC was standing on his toes, and the Orc was crouching.
