* In ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer: Red Alert 3'', the Japanese Commander Kenji will taunt you during skirmish matches with phrases like "Hey look! A noob in training." or "What? This wet nose scrub beat me?". Considering that this takes place (presumably) decades earlier in its timeline, this is probably still cutting-edge slang in-universe.

How a character from an isolationist empire which has only just revealed itself to the world learned to speak in blatantly American slang is not explained, though.

** Waylon's very first line in ''Days of Ruin'' is a deliberate self parody''/''LampshadeHanging of the [=NoA=] localization team's work with the aforementioned Jake. "Would someone tell me why these Lazurians are up in my business?". He then spends the rest of the game speaking in some kind of weird 50s hipster slang. Of course, Waylon is supposed to be an annoying jerk.

** GrandfatherClause is in effect here, though, as Sonic was conceived at the beginning of TheNineties (when some of his phrases were still making the rounds) and he's [[TropeMaker the]] MascotWithAttitude so it comes with the territory.

** The 2015 ''Series/NeedForSpeed'' game is absolutely ''dripping'' with this in the cutscenes where it is far too evident they were trying too hard to emulate street racing culture. However, shut your brain off and it might go all the way around and turn into NarmCharm.

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice For All'': "That monkey doesn't fake the funk on a nasty dunk." To say nothing of Sal Manella, the fat, geeky TV director in the first game who largely communicates in 1337-speak when agitated, prompting your sidekick to ask "What are 'suck sores'?"

* ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeedUnderground 2'''s use of street slang was criticized ''when it came out''; more than a decade later, and some of the dialogue is just downright painful to read or listen to. The most prominent example is that the in-game currency is called "Bank".

* As can be expected from the title, the ''VideoGame/CosmicFantasy'' franchise used the word "Cosmic" on a lot of things, notably the Cosmic Pirates and Cosmic Hunters.
