* 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.

** The name of the countries Djelibeybi and Hersheba. Terry Pratchett's realization that American audiences weren't getting the Djelibeybi pun (because Jelly Babies are hard to get in the US) inspired the creation of nearby Hersheba, which unfortunately most audiences ''in general'' aren't getting.[[labelnote:explanation]]If you've heard of the candy, the Djelibeybi pun is criminally easy to get, due to it being mentally pronounced the same way, ''and'' {{lampshade|Hanging}}d when we're told Djelibeybi literally means "Child of the Djel." Hersheba is not as easy due to variations in pronunciation (it only sounds like the candy if you drop your Rs), the fact that it doesn't have a lampshade, and it's really only mentioned in passing rather than having a book devoted to it. There's also the pronunciation problem: in three-syllable words, the emphasis is on the second, thus 'her-SHE-buh'. [[/labelnote]]
