* A running gag spanning ''multiple'' games started with ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' and it's "Zombie Genocider" achievement for killing 53,594 zombies, a.k.a. the entire population of Willamette, Colorado, the town the game takes place in. ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' had the bright idea to one-up them by including an achievement called "Zombie Genocid'''est''' for killing 53,59'''5''' [[TechnicallyLivingZombie Infected]], and the gag started going from there as various games started to one-up the previous achievement by increasing the number by 1.

* In ''Delicious 5: Emily's Holiday Season'' the local Elvis impersonator keeps showing up wherever Emily currently happens to be working and asks for a hamburger, which he never gets. When finally a hamburger drops out of the sky right in front of him at the end of the game, he asks for ketchup.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has a few: Raine's cooking being terrible (carrying on from a gag that started with PHantasa's Arche), her fear of water, Colette apologising at every little thing, Lloyd's hatred of Dwarven Vow #7 ("Justice and love will always win!"), Zelos [[HandsomeLech flirting with every girl he meets]], Sheena (and Colette's) clumsiness, Raine's love of archaeology, Lloyd's "Give me your name and I'll give you mine" line he uses to anyone who asks him who he is (lampshaded at one point when Genis asks why he didn't say it and Lloyd responds "It's not worth it"), Genis being smart (almost to the point of InsufferableGenius) and Lloyd being dumb, etc.

* The reviewer [[TheSpoonyExperiment The Spoony One]] was pissed that ''[[http://www.spoonyexperiment.com/games/Thing/ The Thing]]'' PC Game had so many fuseboxes you had to waste time on to open doors, and had a "Fuse Box Count" that popped up whenever you saw one. Since then, it pops up whenever you see a fuse box ''in any other game''.

** It's somewhat less noticeable, but starting at ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', every now and then Sonic will fall from the sky, and land on his face. (While he did fall from the sky in ''Sonic 2'', he was caught by Tails.) ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' even uses the gag as BookEnds to the story, while it's ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries SonicAndTheBlackKnight]]'''s CrowningMomentOfFunny.
