* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' features villain Revolver Ocelot who seems to feel...[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything enthusiastic]]...about reloading: an otherwise mundane (if necessary) component of successful gunfighting.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' let's Noctis go fishing. If you snag a fish on the line, super bad ass battle theme type music starts playing. All for catching a single fish.

* In the [=PS2=] and Wii rereleases of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', Leon can get a gangster outfit with a CoolHat. If you hit the reload button while using the infinite ammo Chicago Typewriter, he'll instead reach up and adjust it. On the third push, the camera angle changes to low-angle, he flings the hat into the air, and catches and dons it with a pose more suited to someone from ''HighSchoolMusical''.

* Series/XPlay parodied the whole extreme game trend in the early to mid-2000s with '''{{BRIAN BLESSED}}'''-level ham Johnny X-treme. The character decided no one was making a game '''X-TREME''' enough for him, so he created '''Johnny X-treme's X-treme Adventure''', a game that will '''PUNCH YOUR BALLS OFF''' with gameplay that feels like '''BAKING A LOAD OF COOKIES UP IN YOUR ASS'''. Despite having nukes, chainsaw rocket launchers, flying snakes with searchlights, a water level with alligators used as skis, '''UNLOCKABALLZ'''(tm), and a battle with a sharkasaurus in front of the White House, the game got a completely un-X-TREME 3...out of 5.

* ''VideoGame/{{QWOP}}'' congratulates you and calls you a national hero for running 100 meters, no matter how long it took. Subverted, in that this is a game where you have to manually coordinate moving your calves and thighs--due to your fictional country's Olympic training program having NoBudget--and [[NintendoHard even running just 10 meters means you're doing pretty good]], so it's not ''entirely'' mundane.

* MetroidPrime: No, Samus, you should not be using your BadAss ArmCannon [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=opf1NKFTVRs to weld a transistor]].

* In the early ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' games, the eponymous Personae were [[SummonMagic called forth]] by just sort of willing them into being. Perhaps with the occasional cry of "Persona!" or "Help Me!". In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', Personae are summoned by ''shooting yourself in the head''. In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', the gun-shaped Evokers are removed, and Personae are now summoned by shattering tarot cards by [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning]], kicking it, smashing it with a [[ChairmanOfTheBrawl chair]], shooting it (with a ''real'' gun this time), or [[BadAss just crushing it with your bare hand]].

* In a Pacifist Run in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', you go over (somewhat hesitantly) to [[Main/{{Badass}} Undyne's]] house. When Papyrus bails, she realizes his cooking lessons were right then, so, as her [[Main/CrowningMusicOfAwesome overly awesome theme tune]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTy9v9a7Tmo plays]], she shows you how to cook... THE HARDCORE WAY.
