* Units in ''VideoGame/CompanyOfHeroes'' will get annoyed whenever you repeatedly select them, and they'll get ''really'' annoyed if you [[WhatTheHellPlayer do it in the middle of combat.]] Not all units had a quote, but those that did generally had [[ClusterFBomb lots of profanity as they swore at the player.]] Some units had more witty responses, though, such as the British commandos breaking of the fourth wall by asking if one of them can range that camera hanging up there...

In games that have units vocally acknowledge when you select them, clicking too often can make them annoyed/sarcastic. Originated with ''VideoGame/WarcraftOrcsAndHumans'' (the TropeMaker and TropeNamer) and became a standard feature of all Creator/BlizzardEntertainment's games, and has since spread to other companies. Now, it is almost considered a mandatory feature for any RealTimeStrategy game. BreakingTheFourthWall is optional, but usually adds to the fun.

* Creator/BlizzardEntertainment, after [[TropeMaker inventing this]], raised it to an art form. ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' and all ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' games (including ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'') have characters getting angry, doing comedy routines, or just providing additional insight into their characters. The TropeNamer is the original ''Warcraft'' orc's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=by8AZX9dyiw Stop poking me!]]"

* ''VideoGame/CompanyOfHeroes'' has this, much like ''VideoGame/StarCraft'', whenever you repeatedly select a unit while it's out of combat. Not all units had a quote, but those that did generally had [[ClusterFBomb lots of profanity as they swore at the player.]] Some units had more witty responses, though, such as the British commandos breaking of the fourth wall by asking if one of them can range that camera hanging up there...

* In ''VideoGame/MarioVsDonkeyKong 2: March Of The Minis'', repeatedly closing the DS to put it in sleep mode will make Mario stop saying thing like 'I love-a this game!' and 'Bye bye!' and start shouting 'Hey, come back here!'. Keep doing it and he'll despairingly cry 'Not again!'
* In the newer ''MegaManStarForce'' games, you can poke Omega-Xis with your stylus, resulting in him getting annoyed, and closing the menu. In ''[=MMSF3=]'', however, if you poke him enough, he vanishes, and [[spoiler:the game appears to have frozen. Waiting a couple of seconds will have him come back, mocking you]].

** There's also a "Poke The Bunny" which is somewhat less extreme; it just sinks its razor-sharp teeth into the finger and doesn't let go.
