* Many editions and supplements of ''{{Mekton}}'' have featured mecha pilots with similar names asking their (also similarly named) techs to build them either six-armed HumongousMecha (because they "''got a very good deal in a half dozen beam swords''") and/or smaller infiltration units designed to look like a Coke vending machine ("''It even gives change!''"). They are also invariably hit on the head with a large wrench for their efforts.

* Every version of ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'' mentions in its rules that all players start as "a level 1 human with no class.(hehe)", or something similar (such as "a level 1 human with no class and no style" in ''[[FooFu Munchkin Fu]]''). Later additions tend to follow this with a remark like [[LampshadeHanging "We never get tired of that joke."]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has a few created by fans. Especially the Imperial Guardsman's standard issue flashlight. I mean lasgun.
** Bjorn the Fell-Handed is the oldest SpaceMarine in existence, and remembers walking beside the Emperor and his Primarch ten thousand years ago. Fans like to joke that his chapter only wakes him up when they want to hear stories.
