* There's one scene in ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDeadOverkill'' where protagonists G and Issac talk at length about [[SeriousBusiness what music to play in the car]]. There's another scene where the bad guy talks about how much it sucks to accidentally splash your pant leg with pee.

* Nearly the entire town of Possum Springs in ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods'' is well practiced in talking about nothing in particular, especially if you advance dialogue with a character beyond what is necessary to advance the plot.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/MysticMessenger'', many of the online chats have the characters start out talking about an important topic only to drift off into tangents about far less important stuff like how cute a bowl is or how [[CuteKitten Elizabeth the 3rd]] is doing. This is lampshaded at several points, including the prologue chat where Jumin does the text equivalent of yelling at everyone else that they ''should'' be focusing on the serious matter of a stranger having just unexpectedly entered their private chatroom instead of rambling on about other things.

* ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' has an instant where the duo are watching a music video as usual, until Butthead complains that he's tired of seeing "smartass college student's and water" in music videos, and offers if they should just turn the TV off. Beavis agrees, and there is about one and a half minutes worth of the two chit chatting about their day until they forget what they turned the TV off for and turn it back on.

* ''RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead'' is mostly this. The rest of it is ''{{Hamlet}}''.
* ''WaitingForGodot'' is a philosophical version of this trope. Didi and Gogo talk nonsense while waiting for the eponymous Godot. They keep on talking about how things happen, whether they should continue, if they're hungry, if they should commit suicide. Godot never shows up, and they don't do anything.

* ''{{Fifa Soccer}}'': The commentators tend to do this after you score goals or when there's a general lull in action, where they start commenting on things like player or team performance or throwing trivia at you.

* ''{{Agarest Senki}} 2'': More than a few happen. Standout example is a event where the half party chat up the resident WingedHumanoid asking her how she takes care of her wings while the other half wonder how she can actually fly by pointing out how it should be impossible and bring up ''physics'' into the mix. That's right folks. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny They argue physics in a world with magic, monsters and people who are]] a LittleBitBeastly.

* ''FanFic/FantasyOfUtterRidiculousness:'' An encounter between [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Alice, Marisa, Patchouli and Reisen]] degenerates into a drawn-out argument, the topics of which range from Marisa's thieving tendencies to Reisen's memetic "useless little bunny" status.

* ''Fanfic/TangledUpInYou'' at one point drops us into a discussion about giraffe scarves.
-->'''Nino''': Thatís ridiculous! A giraffe scarf would obviously have to cover the entire neck. You couldnít just slap a human scarf on it, it would hardly cover anything and would just look silly!
-->'''Alya''': Oh, and a super long scarf wrapped from head to torso wouldnít?
-->'''Marinette''': And thatís why I was thinking that it makes more sense to make it a tube. Then if you add ties at either end you can adjust it so that it stays on and covers the whole thing.
-->'''Nino''': See, THAT is what Iím talking about! That makes infinitely more sense than just one long strip of fabric, and can be both fashionable and functional. You will go far in the world of giraffe scarves, girl.
-->'''Marinette''': Thanks, I think.
-->'''Adrien''': Okay, but I think we can all agree what the real question is here. What pattern would the scarf have? Like, would it be giraffe patterned to blend in, a solid color, or something different?
-->'''Alya''': I think they should be offered in a wide variety of patterns. Giraffe should definitely be one, but how fucking funny would it be to see a giraffe wearing a cheetah or zebra print scarf?
-->'''Marinette and Adrien''': [[RunningGag Language!]]
