* ''[[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.

* 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/{{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.

* 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]]]].

** Corvo and Jessamine are secretly lovers, but given the fact that the latter is the Empress, and the former is her bodyguard that she trusts above all else, it's... not really a secret. How they managed to avoid any scandals was by continuing to act like their affair was still secret. It worked so well, that even after they had a child out of wedlock, those who could've incriminated them merely ended up keeping their (awkward) silence, unsure of how to proceed with this information.

** In Thane's Loyalty mission, a stock boy accosts you when you're trying to sneak through an area. Shepard, in a Paragon option, claims he's with Citadel Health and Safety about an infestation in the area. [[ImplausibleDeniability While in full combat armor, covered in weapons.]] The stock boy, though initially not believing him, ultimately decides [[BystanderSyndrome it's not his problem]] and leaves.

** Lastly there's [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Wrex]], who distracts a guard by claiming to be a food inspector, and eventually [[{{Troll}} just berating the guards for]] [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy being terrible at guarding]].
*** Special mention here in that, as leader of the Krogan, Wrex could, if he wanted to, ''legitimately declare himself a food inspector''.

* The VideoGame/RPGMaker game ''[[http://rpgmaker.net/games/2068/ Beautiful Escape: Dungeoneer]]'' revolves around a community of people named "Dungeoneers" who befriend people, then capture them, drag them to a TortureCellar, [[ColdBloodedTorture film the person being tortured for fun]], and upload the video to the internet for the public to see. The game states that they haven't been caught because nobody can believe that somebody would torture innocent victims and be completely open about it.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', the ''Mark of the Assassin DLC'' has Hawke and Tallis attempt to infiltrate Chateau-Haine whilst coming up with increasingly ludicrous stories to get past the guards, involving acting the part of a sterotypical foppish noble and ChewingTheScenery. Sadly, due to the guards being jaded from years of exposure to nobility (and Orlesians), [[NegatedMomentOfAwesome it doesn't work]].

** In the core game, any Hawke can fall into this but especially Mage Hawke. See, in the Dragon Age setting, mages who aren't members of a Circle of Magi are dubbed "apostate" and hunted by dedicated AntiMagic soldiers known as Templars. Mage Hawke is an apostate, and can swan around everywhere with a clearly magical staff on their back, up to three other apostate mages in their party, and a broad smirk as much as they please, presumably because Templars expect apostate mages to hide and skulk rather than buy their way into high society. You can even engage in spellcasting directly in front of Templars, give one of their Knight-Captains a lengthy speech about [[IHaveThisFriend your mage friends]], and otherwise go out of your way to rub in their faces that you're a mage, and none of them will be ''able'' to do anything about it, especially in Act 3 when you have a heroic reputation and a statue looking right at their HQ.
