* VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes, in a very cynical manner of speaking. Your opponents in the first game alone include a mad scientist with an earthquake machine operated by a BrainInAJar who [[spoiler: gets taken out by your rival [[CutSceneBoss in the middle of a cut-scene]]]], an old bag lady whose shopping cart turns into a WaveMotionGun, and [[PsychopathicManChild a creepy woman-child]] who attacks with sports equipment and an army of gimps.

* {{VideoGame/Psychonauts}} thrives on this trope thanks to the theme of entering the minds of the mentally unstable leading to some pretty surreal scenarios, like travelling an Escher-esque suburban neighborhood infested with thinly-disguised secret agents.

* The sheer absurdity of some of the situations that transpire in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' can veer into this. [[LudicrousGibs Given the nature]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath of the combat system]] [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank in the game,]] BloodyHilarious and BlackComedy tend to come into play frequently as well.

We also have random instances of MundaneMadeAwesome on occasion, e.g. "The metalsmith has been stung by a honeybee!"
