* Creator/GunpeiYokoi for a number of years was mainly known for the Virtual Boy and his tragic death, although he started being remembered for his positive legacy, such as ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' and creating the Game & Watch and GameBoy, and for coming up with the idea for Nintendo to adopt the policy of "Lateral thinking with withered technology" (i.e. "do new things with old tech").

* One has to really pity poor [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Dhaos]]. He was a fairly badass villain with a reasonably understandable motive and tragic backstory, but thanks to the GameBoyAdvance port of ''Tales of Phantasia'' having poor English voice acting, he is never '''ever''' going to live down reacting to Edward D. Morrison's Indignation with a poorly delivered "What the heck is that?!" Apparently that's all he can ever say or do. Dhaos and Indignation in itself is also a case as, yes, in his original game it did force him to retreat and in the first boss battle with him it can end the battle early if his health is low enough, but in the fandom its gotten to the point where it apparently can kill him in one hit. In most games he's in (As well as his expy [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Sekundes]]) it only merely does a lot of damage to him and will only trigger a special scene if his health is low enough (for example, see Rita's Thunder Blade on him in the [=PS3=] version of ''Vesperia''.)

* Has happened to many ''BackyardSports'' characters. For example, Dmitri will forever be known as TheSmartGuy, while Maria will forever be known as the girl with pigtails.

** Hoenn, the region in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and their remakes, gets a lot of crap for having [[MemeticMutation "too much water"]] in the last portion of the games. While there ''is'' a lot of water that you have to surf across, one would assume that the region was only 10% land given how much people complain about it.
*** Naturally, the fans of third generation games themselves respond by never letting the meme origin IGN live down their otherwise common use of the FourPointScale, to say nothing of just how incredible their choice of wording is when the specific game being reviewed was ''Alpha Sapphire''[[labelnote:*]] Referring to the BigBad's plans being to flood the world, killing off all other life to make room for plenty of Water pokemon.[[/labelnote]]
*** Then of course, there's the trumpety soundtrack.

Bethesda will never live down the Horse Armour Armor DLC debacle from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]''. Even [[WordOfGod Todd Howard]] lampshaded it at E3 2011.2011.
** In-Universe, this is downplayed in regards to Molag Bal's ([[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[TheCorrupter Domination and Corruption]]) most infamous title, "[[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil King of Rape]]". To note:
*** In-universe, he's only been recorded as having raped one person, but this does not prevent his most infamous title being that of the "King of Rape". It also doesn't help that this act was stated to be the "first" rape, similar in implication to the "first murder" of the Bible.
*** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s ''Dawnguard'' DLC further downplays this. It's implied that this is one of the ways that Molag Bal chooses to confer the abilities of a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire Lord]] upon his most devout followers. While his male followers are asked to perform a large Human Sacrifice in his name, women are subjected to a far more degrading ritual at his hands, with the implication being further reinforced by [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Serana]] refusing to elaborate further on the matter.
*** In the title's original context, personal assault wasn't even the focus. Instead the "King of Rape" was focused the corruption of racial and genealogical purity, both being SeriousBusiness to the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer]].

* ''VideoGame/DukeNukem'' is going to likely be forever associated with ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'', {{Vaporware}} and forever being in DevelopmentHell. Never mind the popular series, everyone thinks of it as 'that game which spent fifteen years in development'.

Never mind the popular series, everyone thinks of it as 'that game which spent fifteen years in development'. In addition, the latter is also infamous for having a minigame that involves spanking a woman trying to make a bid for freedom, which even for the game's politically-incorrect humour, was seen as too much.

* ''VisualNovel/{{SOON}}'': InUniverse example. To Atlas's chagrin, people always remember that ''[[InsistentTerminology one]] [[RunningGag time]]'' Atlas blew up a "little chunk of Switzerland."

* Ayumi Tachibana from ''Famicom Detective Club'' series seems to be renowned in Japanese fandom for her reckless action of [[spoiler:drugging the protagonist with sleeping pill on his coffee]]. Even the Japanese description of her trophy in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' lampshaded this.

** Also, from ''VideoGame/Persona5'', Ryoji tends to use a NoIndoorVoice in which [[RealityEnsues nearly got the Phantom Thieves into trouble by being caught]] twice (once in Kaneshiro's arc where Makoto overheard him and another in a sushi bar where the Phantom Thieves had to make a quick excuse). However, fans tend to treat like he does that on a regular basis. It is also noteworthy that there were other times where the Phantom Thieves had their identities unintentionally be known to other people that had nothing to deal with Ryoji's NoIndoorVoice.

* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]] is known for being kidnapped constantly, and apparently every game is based on this concept. This is not the case. Admittedly, Zelda has been rescued in several games, she is often depicted as being able to take care of herself. An example is ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', and you actually discover late in the game that [[spoiler:she was the awesome ninja that has been fighting evil and bossing you around for half the game.]] Zelda HAS been kidnapped, enchanted, turned to stone and whatnot for half of the game, but the other half was spent kicking ass.

** If you ever find an online reference to Teba from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', the one thing that people will bring up about him is that he says [[PrecisionFStrike "Dammit!"]] in a ''Zelda'' game.
