* 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.
