* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', monsters politely refer to death as "falling down". This is eventually explained: [[spoiler:when a monster gets to the point in its long life that it can no longer continue, it just stops moving and drops down on the ground, waiting to die and its body to scatter.]]

** It's also quite possible they DON'T mate - according to a special scene in [=HeartGold=] and [=SoulSilver=], [[spoiler:Arceus creates every single Pokémon egg. Which aren't quite exactly eggs, but more like a sort of nursery or cradle]].

* One of the ''HarvestMoon'' games has the term "Best Friend system" when to the lesbian marriage option. You "best friend" your 'friend' even though they clearly have both Affection and Friendship points once you get a certain item, and that the clearly affectionate lines are all left in from the original male-only version of the game.
