*** Even better is if you play one during the Ziost arc in the ''Shadow of Revan'' expansion. EldritchAbomination ex-Emperor possessing an entire planet? The rest of the classes get dialogue that amounts to declarations of professional intent to destroy him or {{BadassBoast}}s to get attention focused on them and not the people of Ziost. The Smuggler? Nah, they can ''flirt'' with said abomination, and then follow it up with a ''dick joke.''

* VideoGame/DukeNukem's bread and butter. This is a man who wrote a book titled "Why I'm So Great", a man who throws money at the feet of strippers when anyone else would be evacuating them from an active warzone, and a man who once threatened a giant alien monster with "I'll rip your head off and shit down your neck!" ''and then followed through with the threat once it was dead''.

* Ben Jordan attempts this in Case 7 of ''VideoGame/BenJordanParanormalInvestigator''. He attempts to enter Genovese's apartment by saying "[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros It's a me, the Pope]]." Case 8 then features him saying "God dammit" in the church and in front of a priest.
** Use the hand icon on a priest and it will say "Shouldn't that be the other way around?"

* In the web game ''[[VideoGame/ChoiceOfGames Choice of the Vampire]]'', an ancient vampire governor asks the fledgling player character's opinion on who should be the next lord of the city. They can name themselves, in which case the governor astonishes the appalled crowd by laughing in admiration of their sheer pluck. However, if the fledgling is a ''total'' nobody in vampire society at the time, she'll coldly snub them, so the trope only stretches so far.

* ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'': This is the reason why Alice dresses like an ancient Egyptian princess (mostly because she likes it, though). [[spoiler: SOIS' dress code is very loose for the purpose of making people not think they're members of a top-secret organization, to the point where there are agents dressed up as Elvis, Lady Gaga, and even ''Captain America''. This fact has not gone unnoticed by those whom actually know about the organization.]]

* The character endings for ''VideoGame/BustAGroove 2'' all take place on a show called "Dancing Heroes" where a man named James Suneoka will come out, tell a joke (which would always lead to the audience booing and throwing a random object at him), deliver some backstory on whichever character you played as, interact with the character briefly, and then let them dance to the credits music. The jokes told by James range from corny (What do you say to someone who keeps asking the same question? "Where were you when they were handing out the brains?") to downright insensitive (What do you need to get Music/TheBeatles back together again? Three more bullets!), and the interactions between him and the character usually resulted in violent AmusingInjuries, such as having a hole blown through him by a bazooka, or getting an axe lodged in his head ''with blood squirting out''. It was likely for these reasons that James Suneoka was cut entirely from the American version of the game, despite his dialogue already being in English.

* ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic 3]]'' (especially without lock on) contains a few physics glitches, some of which can get Sonic and Tails stuck under certain walls and curves, sometimes forcing the player to reset or wait out the time limit; clearly an accidental function of the game's code. Instead of trying to ignore or downplay this, the american manual describes these bugs as "Diabolical Traps" set by Robotnik on purpose.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' has this as an option during the Lady Boyle mission: you can enter the party, dressed as the assassin who has murdered or ruined several key political figures ([[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself by which we mean yourself]]) over the last few days. You can walk right up to your target, and tell her that you need to get her to the basement, since there is an assassin after her ([[CrowningMomentOfFunny by which we mean yourself]]) who is now in the building. And she will believe you, and follow you down there, because no one could ever be so brazenly obvious about being the assassin! You can even sign the guest list under your character's real name (who is, by this point, a wanted criminal), and you'll find out later that it's believed to have been a prank.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird''. ALL OF IT.

to:

* If you ask [[BadassBookworm Arcade]] [[DeadlyDoctor Gannon]] from ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' why he never talks about his past, he will answer that it's because he was part of a murderous, tyrannical paramilitary organization. He will then add "just kidding". [[spoiler: Turns out, he is one of the [[BigBad Enclave]] [[RetiredBadass Remnants]]]].
