** Balon Greyjoy named his little son after a famous Stark king in a form of WorthyOpponent, VillianRespect (from an Iron Islands' perspective). Um... Theon was doomed to live between stools even before he became a Stark hostage, wasn't he?

->''Ever notice a lot of butlers are named [[TheJeeves Jeeves]]? You know, I think when you name a baby "Jeeves"... you've pretty much mapped out his future, wouldn't you say? Not much chance he's gonna be a hitman, I think, after that. "Terribly sorry, sir, but I'm going to have to whack you."''

-->'''The rogue:''' Any last words? -->'''Predictably Damaged V:''' Make sure you don't skimp on fire extinguishing foam when you build ''Predictably Damaged VI''. Oh and.. [Explodes] -->'''Narrator:''' Humans would pick a new name after five losses. The rogue appreciates humorous irony too much for that.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', there is an item found early in the game called Scroll of Icarian Flight. It gives you 1000 extra jump skill, which both allows you to jump very high and absorbs damage from long falls. The problem? This skill boost only lasts 7 seconds. You won't be able to reach the ground before the scroll wears off. ** To give you more of a hint... you get the scroll off the dead body of a mage, when he lands in front of you from out of nowhere.
