* The title of ''VideoGame/AkibasTrip'' is a pun on "Akiba Strip", and stripping enemies is how you defeat them.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* The ''VideoGame/PointBlank'' games are somewhat [[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo oddly-named]] in Japan, but all the titles are puns conflating the stock Japanese phrase "ganbare" with the English word "gun."

* James Pond: Underwater Agent is an obvious pun on James Bond (who is an underCOVER agent). His arch nemesis is Dr. Maybe (after Dr. No), and most of the levels in the game are (terrible) James Bond puns, such as "A View To A Spill" and "Leak and Let Die".

* ''[[http://www.supercanemagic.com/ Super Cane Magic ZERO]]'' is a RPG made by Italian devs and featuring the art of Italian cartoonist Sio. It's about a dog that found a magic cane and [[RealityWarper made the world fall into chaos]] with its powers. But "cane" (pronounced ''kah-nay'') in Italian means "dog", so it's about a cane-wielding ''cane'', thus explaining the subtitle "Legend of the Cane Cane". By the way, [[CaptainObvious "Zero" means "zero" in Italian]].

** ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood'' is known as ''Akumajō Dracula X: Chi no Rondo'' in Japan. The "X" is meant to represent the fact that it's the first ''Castlevania'' game set after Simon Belmont's era (most of the previous games were remakes and prequels), but it doubles as a StealthPun since it's the tenth ''Dracula'' game released by Konami in Japan following the three Famicom games (3), the [=MSX2=] version (4), the arcade game (5), the first two Game Boy games (7), the Super Famicom version (8) and the [=X68000=] version (9).
