* In ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', a lot of items get a random bonus indicated with a prefix in the item's name. Because of how this works, Demonic Demon Scythes are excellent weapons for getting through the part where you find them.
** Due to how NPC names work, you can get an NPC called "Santa Claus the Santa Claus" during Christmas.

* In ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'', Repeater has a tendency to repeat what he says, possibly as a reference to his name.
--> "Everyone always asks me if we've met before." says Repeater. "Everyone always asks me if we've met before. Wait, did I just say that?"

* A poem line in ''VideoGame/NancyDrew: Stay Tuned For Danger'' goes; "Choose the path you decide to take". Well, yes, that is what 'choice' means.

* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRow1'', the gang the Carnales or Los Carnales are often referred to as "The Los Carnales", infuriating Dex to no end. He later stumbles into it himself and blames one of the other gang members.
-->"The Los Carnales are attacking The Row!" "It's the Carnales are attacking! Los means The!" *blank stare* "RIO GRANDE RIVER! Oh forget it!"

* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRow1'', Dex is apparently the only member of the Saints that understands any Spanish, and gets annoyed with the others whenever they refer to the local Latino gang the Carnales or Los Carnales are often referred to as "The "the Los Carnales", infuriating Dex to no end. He later stumbles into it himself and blames one of the other gang members.
-->"The Los Carnales are attacking The Row!" "It's the Carnales are attacking! Los
because "los" means The!" *blank stare* "RIO GRANDE RIVER! Oh forget it!""the", so they're saying "the The Carnales". He eventually [[GotMeDoingIt starts doing it himself]], which pisses him off him even more.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DiabloII'' has this in two different shapes.
** When passing the mouse over a corpse with a skill that uses corpses, the corpse will be listed as "(Monster's name) Corpse", which is fine and all until you realize that ''a ton'' of enemies are undead, which leads to beautiful things like "Skeleton Corpse" and "Mummy Corpse".
** Then there's the items. It's entirely possible to get a "Light Belt of Light", a lightweight belt which increases the light radius, or a "Strong Field Plate of Strength", a strong - as in, ''resistant'' - armor which increases the Strength stat. If using a save editor, then it's perfectly possible to make a, say, "Fiery Axe of Fire". Or, for a more fancy version, a "Flaming Glorious Axe of Incineration". It should be noted, though, that the game precludes said combinations from happening normally.
