* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' games begin with the main character locked in prison for some reason or another with alarming frequency. Usually you're freed by the Emperor to aid him in some manner. Subverted for once in ''Skyrim'', where instead of being locked up in prison, you're on your way to be ''executed''.
** If anyone mugs you, [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall they're]] [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind probably]] [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion after]] [[VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}} your]] [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim sweetroll]].
** In ''Morrowind'', there were three separate instances of nude Nord barbarians, as a result of them offending the witch they were escorting. Later spoofed in ''Tribunal'' when you found another nude Nord who was quite vocal about having never escorted a witch; he's nude because Mournhold is ''hot''.
** M'aiq the liar who shows up in every game from ''Morrowind'' onwards (either the original or his great great grandson) to make {{Fandom Nod}}s and TakeThat comments about the fans and [[TakeThatUs devs alike]].

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has [=FATEs=], which are random events that happen throughout the overworld that involve monsters or other enemies players have to defeat waves of or take on a boss. Each FATE has a description and several of them will always poke fun at the Lalafell being eaten or are in the danger of being eaten/abused due to the race's small childlike size.

** Phoenix cross-examining animals. First with a parrot in the first game, then an orca during the DLC episode of ''Dual Destinies''. In ''Spirit of Justice'' the judge asks Phoenix if he's going to do the same thing to a dog, but Phoenix declines, "at least this time".

** The tendency of Elzam's {{Leitmotif}} '"Trombe!" to override all other songs is taken as a RunningGag by the producers. But then {{Flanderization}} took over, and due to the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesomeness]] of the song, and it's no longer viewed as a RunningGag, but justified by the RuleOfCool. In the RPG spinoff ''EndlessFrontier'', there's a running gag involving Kaguya Nanbu being mistaken for or compared to a cow, due to her... huge tracts of land, and possibly her white-and-black outfit, including by what's essentially a minotaur. Who asks to ''marry her''.
