* Several level titles in ''VideoGame/LegoMarvelSuperheroes'' are puns. Like "Juggernauts and Crosses" for the first level at X-Mansion involving Juggernaut (because it's X-Mansion, [[SigilSpam there are indeed a lot of crosses around]]), "Taking Liberties" for the level where you fight a HYDRA-hijacked [[MonumentalBattle Statue of Liberty]], and "Bro-tunheim" for the level where Thor and Loki reunite.
