This work is drowning in puns. The characters are dropping them left and right, and often the narrator (if there is one) will get in on the action, too. Worlds of Pun generally capitalize on a quirky brand of humor, with the puns as an integral, [[IncrediblyLamePun pundamental]] feature of the work's appeal.

* Essentially every name in the ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' series is a pun. Most of them are just terrible, including a bomber named Ted Tonate, a detective named Dick Gumshoe, a noodle vendor named Guy Eldoon, and a victim literally just named Deid Mann. Others are a little more well thought out: mob doctor Pal Meraktis, for instance, becomes "malpractice" when you switch the first letters of the first and last names. All, however, are corny as hell and stupidly fun to figure out.

* ''Franchise/MonsterHigh''. Only in this doll franchise will you see cities like Monster Picchu, Boo York, and Barcelgroana. Or countries like Costa Shrieka, Fangladesh, and the Doominican Republic. And yet, Earth is still called Earth.

* ''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.

* In-universe example: In addition to the puns that litter their ordinary dialogue, the regulars at [[CallahansCrosstimeSaloon Callahan's]] hold regular Punday Night competitions and tell [[ShaggyDogStory shaggy dog stories]] where the punchlines are ''truly'' horrible. Jake, the series' {{Narrator}}, states that the highest compliment one can pay to a pun is to hold one's nose and run screaming into the night.
