* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'': one of the missions you pick up from an ECHO recording: "What a nice day. Just walkin' out in the sun, talking into my ECHO recorder, hoping skags don't ambush me and break my gun into four separate pieces before eating them..."

of the missions you pick up from an ECHO recording: "What a nice day. Just walkin' out in the sun, talking into my ECHO recorder, hoping skags don't ambush me and break my gun into four separate pieces before eating them..."
** Another one from the ''A Meat Bicycle Built For Two'' trailer, courtesy of Krieg's sane but cynical internal monologue versus his completely insane external persona:
-->'''Good!Krieg:''' "Oh God. She's armed with a Maliwan SMG. She's a Vault Hunter. She's a Siren warrior who could kill me with her brain. She's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. Tell her she's as gorgeous as a thousand sunsets. Tell her you need her help. Tell her to rescue you and care for you, and whatever you do, ''do not scream the word "poop" at the top of your lungs''."\\
'''Krieg:''' ''(literally one second later) '''I'M THE CONDUCTOR OF THE POOP TRAIN!'''''\\
[''Maya makes a face and starts shooting at Krieg while he runs for cover'']\\
'''Good!Krieg:''' ''(dejectedly)'' "It's over, idiot. You're gonna die here and now, and the last words out of your mouth will have been "poop train.

* In ''VideoGame/QuakeIV'', the cowardly engineer you're [[EscortMission escorting]] mentions how he [[GenreSavvy hates waiting for elevators]]... Cue a bloody lot of [[DemonicSpiders Network Guardians]] crawling out of the woodwork. YouJustHadToSayIt, did you?

* ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'': Waelda elder Laurel mentions a machine in Belinsk [[spoiler:(The Alchemy Dynamo)]] and how Matthew and his lot must never activate it.

* In ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', a group of {{space marine}}s board a ship owned by hostile [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Covenant.]] They look around the empty room they arrive in, note that there are no blips on their RADAR, and one of them says: "No Covenant. I guess nobodies home." Cue doors all around them opening to reveal hordes of LaserSword - wielding Covenant (who were wearing devices that shielded them from RADAR.)
** Quickly lampshaded: "No Covenant. You had to open your mouth."

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo|Combat Evolved}}'': Self-imposed by the player. Moments leading up to Master Chief's first encounter with the parasitic Flood, he witnesses the aftermath of battles with the unseen enemy: dead marines, broken glass, and blood everywhere. When the player is finally confronted, the music dies and all they turn out to be are a bunch of insects waltzing into the small room ahead of Master Chief. The player can choose to stay and easily dispatch them, however they keep pouring in to the point that for every one the player kills, five more take its place. Then they start pouring in from the left and right doors and the pace keeps increasing as the music starts to become frantic. If the player hadn't done so already, they will now have chosen the correct course, which is to run; otherwise, they will be stuck in a room flooded with Flood (which continue to chase Master Chief throughout the level).

* While the RealLife [[UsefulNotes/MLBTeams Boston Red Sox]] already broke the Curse of the Bambino when they won the World Series back in 2004, the Red Sox in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' had ''still'' [[AlternateHistory not won a World Series by 2077]]. If you head for the headquarters of the ''Boston Bugle'', you'll find a news article from October 22, 2077 saying that they went up 3 games to none in the best-of-7 series on a team from Texas that had been favored to win, with Game 4 to be played on October 23 at Fenway Park. As the end of the article notes, "the only thing that could snatch away victory is an act of God, or some obscene calamity of man." [[ForegoneConclusion Nuclear war, of course, broke out the next day.]]

* Throughout ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', Colonel Volgin made a point of chanting "Kuwabara, Kuwabara" whenever a thunderstorm approached, as a means of warding off the storm from himself. Near the end of the game, after undergoing a VillainousBreakdown, he scoffs at another approaching storm, neglecting his chant. [[BoltOfDivineRetribution Big mistake.]]
