** Surprisingly one of the tragedies, ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'', has the most by far, with an average of one pun every 4 lines.

** Surprisingly one of the tragedies, ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'', has the most by far, with an average of one pun every 4 lines. The opening scene starts off with Gregory and Sampson, two of the Capulets' servants, before they encounter Abraham and Balthazar:
-->'''Sampson''': Gregory, o' my word, we'll not carry coals.
-->'''Gregory''': Nay, for then we should be colliers.
-->'''Sampson''': I mean, and you be in choler, we'll draw.
-->'''Gregory''': Ay, while you live, draw your neck out o' the collar.[[note]]The noose[[/note]]

*** ''Unhinged'' had Donkey Folk, which only existed to make puns on "ass". There was Smart Ass, Dumb Ass, Fat Ass, Cheap Ass and Bad Ass. (Who all have fractional numbers, specifically those involving 1/2, as their power and toughness because they're half-assed.)
*** There are also the Clay Pigeon (a 1/1 flying bird that had an effect when thrown), the Rock Lobster (it wasn't a rock, and many take it for granite), the Paper Tiger (who burns bright and folds easily), and the Scissors Lizard (who has a lot of shear power).
*** Fowl Play turns things into chickens.
** The Man of Measure is better at offense or defense depending on whether you're measured as taller or shorter than an opponent.
** The Standing Army doesn't tap when it attacks, because they're always standing... but only as long as you are too.

* All of Creator/JayWard's cartoons were this in spades. ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'', ''HoppityHooper'', ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle'', all of them were just rife with puns. The narrator was especially fond of the "Tune in next time, when we hear Bullwinkle say..." variety.

* ''Literature/ThePhantomTollbooth'' is one of these. There's a "watchdog" called Tock who is a dog with a clock in his abdomen. In the city of Dictionopolis people literally "eat their words" off plates, and for dessert they have half-baked ideas (like "The moon is made of green cheese"), fresh from the half-bakery. People literally jump to an island called Conclusions. There's even a cart that "goes without saying" -- as soon as the passengers were all quite silent, it starts moving. And so on and so forth.

* Pretty much every {{Sierra}} adventure game ever. The ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' series is probably better known for the puns in its death messages than anything.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' loves puns almost as much as it loves dogs. Not only are there multiple PungeonMaster characters, {{Punny Name}}s are everywhere and puns are also common in FlavorText.
