* For the longest time, ''VideoGame/{{DanceDanceRevolution}}'' had the "Good" judgement rank below "Great", "Perfect", and "Marvelous". It's worth 0 points in most games, it doesn't raise your LifeMeter (but also doesn't decrease it), and it breaks your combo, the latter being made worse in modes where you are given a limited number of combo-breaking judgements before you get a GameOver, with that number ranging anywhere from four to [[OneHitPointWonder one]].[[note]]''[=DanceDanceRevolution=] Solo Bass Mix'' and ''[=DanceDanceRevolution=] Solo 2000'' give you points on a Good, but your combo still breaks.[[/note]] The 2013 ''DDR'' game alleviates this a little by making Goods count towards combo, and ''[=DanceDanceRevolution=] A'' makes Goods add points for the first time in the mainline series, if by a small amount.

* The UsefulNotes/XboxOne is NOT the first XBox console Microsoft released. To avoid confusion, gamers called the first XBox as "Xbox Original".

*** The word Solid is also in reference to the fact that Metal Gear Solid was the first in the series to use revolutionary-at-the-time polygonal graphics, but because the name is a WordSaladTitle this isn't immediately apparent. Aside from the fact that polygonal graphics are the norm nowadays, there are a handful of polygonal Metal Gear games that ''don't'' have the word Solid in their title, including ''MetalGearAcid'', ''MetalGearOnline'' and ''MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', that make the use of the word less obvious.

** Enemy names have this in spade. [=ReDeads=] have not died again; they're clay zombies, plain and simple. It's actually very annoying to find Rope, and it doesn't help in any way, since a Rope is a snake enemy. A Darknut is not a corrupted plant monster, it is a BlackKnight. There are also Bubbles (flying skulls that are usually covered with flames), Hardhat Beetles (squid enemies), Pol's Voices (silent rabbit-like enemies), and Wart (huge eyeball monster, sometimes depicted as jellyfish-like).

* Amongst the many different categories of weapons available in the ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' series, there are Greatswords and there are the even bigger ''Ultra'' Greatswords. In all three games, the weapon simply called "Greatsword" is part of the latter category.

** All towns and areas in the series are hit with SpaceCompression, but none quite so hard as Ever Grande City, the final area of ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire''. Despite its name, the entire area consists of a mountainous island with one Pokemon Center at the beginning, the Pokemon League at the end, and the cave Victory Road connecting the two.

** Even the term "evolution" as used in the games is itself non-indicative. In biology, evolution is a slow and constant change that occurs over thousands or even millions of years. What actually happens when Pokémon evolve in the games is closer to metamorphosis than evolution. This is not a translation issue, as the Japanese term "shinka" does mean "evolution", although it is often used in Japanese media to describe something or someone changing into a more powerful form.

Added DiffLines:

** The addition of 'Solid' to the title alludes in part to the protagonist, Solid Snake. Solid Snake has been the protagonist of fewer of the 'Solid' games than Naked Snake/Big Boss - he's only been the main character of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' and ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'', and was briefly playable and plot important in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' although [[DemotedToExtra definitely not the main character]]. He's actually been the main character in more games that aren't titled "Solid" (''VideoGame/MetalGear'', ''VideoGame/MetalGear2'', ''VideoGame/SnakesRevenge'', ''VideoGame/MetalGearGhostBabel'', ''VideoGame/MetalGearAcid'') than in ''Metal Gear Solid'' games.
