* The characters from the ''Franchise/{{Atelier}}'' series seem to have an unhealthy fascination with barrels, and will shout "[[CaptainObvious Barrel!]]" every time the player examines one.

Added DiffLines:

* In a few Mario games (including ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' and ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''), the fact that Princess Peach has been kidnapped [[OncePerEpisode AGAIN]] does not escape notice, and makes for a quick joke.

Added DiffLines:

* [[VillainProtagonist The Fatebinder]] in ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'' is often given the option to [[DeathGlare [=[Glare Silently]=]]] in dialogue. This can be pretty effective if done sparingly, but if the player goes for glaring silently at every possible juncture? Terratus is a WorldOfSnark, so characters eventually start cracking jokes about the Fatebinder's curious habit of grim, brooding silence. [[SourSupporter Eb]] will do a sarcastic impersonation of the Fatebinder's glare, and [[HumanoidAbomination Tunon]], [[BerserkButton who really hates it when the Fatebinder tries it on him]], will eventually mockingly demand to know why the Fatebinder's "speech is often stilled as if by some great terror or apprehension". (Though if the Fatebinder replies [[spoiler:that it's to let people incriminate themselves with their own words]], Tunon will be begrudgingly impressed.)

* Videogame/DeadlyRoomsOfDeath: In Journey to Rooted Hold, a series of "runners" attempt to relay a message, which loses information each time it get's passed on. The City Beneath has two gossipers who chat about Beethro's latest escapade. The Second Sky has the Critic, who follows Beethro everywhere to make sarcastic comments about his swordplay at every opportunity.

** 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.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', the Annoying Dog has an inexplicable ability to pop up in storage places (including the player's inventory) where it's neither wanted nor expected.

It also has a habit of stealing things that the characters have or want, including Papyrus's special attack, a legendary artifact from a shrine, [[spoiler:Toriel's cell phone]] (potentially, more than once even!)....

** Speaking of Blizzard, they also have a running joke about how Darkness called... [[IncrediblyLamePun but I was on the phone, so I missed him]].[[labelnote:*]]Among other puns.[[/labelnote]] It started as StopPokingMe quotes from a bunch of villainous characters in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', and now spread all over ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''.

** Kohaku's [[InsistentTerminology insisting]] to other people (mainly Hiromasa) that it is a ''fox'', not a dog.
