** At one point in ''Goodbye Deponia'', Rufus is groping around in the dark and finds something "dry, long, and thin" which he jokingly identifies as "...the plot of [[VideoGame/SecretFiles "Secret Files: Tunguska"]]! Or a low-hanging branch. Either one."

** ''Goal'' qualifies for this in ''Deponia Doomsday'' [[spoiler:what with trying to save Rufus despite very real and deadly threats against her if she does, culminating in a PyrrhicVictory that sees her [[Irony die to prevent Rufus's own death from a HeroicSacrifice made for her sake]]. Since this course of events sets off DisasterDominoes culminating in an EarthShatteringKaboom, convincing her to let go and move on becomes the ultimate driving [[IncrediblyLamePun goal]] of the game.]]

* {{Corpsing}}: In-Universe, Rufus will break out in giggles on ''Chaos on Deponia'' if he hears Janosch's lisp, offending the resistance group (of whom Janosch leads); in order to convince them, he has to get through explaining the Organon plot on Deponia without triggering said lisp when Janosch reiterates it.

[[InAWorld On a landfill-planet called Deponia]], there lives a [[BunglingInventor clever and ambitious]] but [[ComedicSociopathy reckless and short-sighted]] fool named Rufus, who wants nothing more than to get off of Deponia and reach the beautiful flying city of Elysium in the sky. After his latest failed escape attempt, he manages to knock an Elysian girl called Goal off the cruiser she is traveling on to the surface below, breaking her brain implant in the process. This prompts her fiance to offer a reward for her return, giving the egotisical Rufus a ticket off the junk pile he calls home. So begins an adventure where Rufus takes his unconscious love from his home in Kuvaq across the trash-filled world to the meeting with her fiance, all the while chased by the Organon, cyborg-soldiers with insidious plans for Goal and Deponia.

The rest of the cast includes a variety of colorful characters, almost all of whom hate or are casually contemptuous of [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist Rufus]]. These include Toni, Rufus's ex-girlfriend; Wenzel, Rufus's best friend who laughs at his multiple attempts to escape; Cletus, Goal's Elysian fiance who [[IdenticalStranger looks identical to Rufus]] [[VillainousGoatee but with a goatee]]; and Doc, a handyman and brain surgeon who enjoys meditation and alcohol. ''Deponia'' is a point-and-click adventure game that was released in January 2012 by Creator/DaedalicEntertainment.

The third game and GrandFinale of the trilogy, titled ''Goodbye Deponia'', was released on October 18, 2013. After putting Goal's personality back together, she [[RuleOfThree disappears yet again]]. When looking for her, he finds a cloning machine and thinks that he has found the solution to his problem: [[MesACrowd More Rufuses]] would mean more efficiency in his mission! [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong ...Right?]] Now Rufus has to coordinate his tripled selves to find Goal, reach Elysium and save Deponia from the forces of Organon once and for all.

That was thought to be the end of the series, but on February 25th, 2016, Daedalic announced [[TrilogyCreep a fourth game]], ''Deponia Doomsday'', released five days later on March 1st, 2016. Rufus wakes up from a very strange and horrifying dream in which, right after the ending of the third game, Elysium crashed into Deponia, leaving him as the only survivor on the planet. Determined to not let that happen, and with the help of [=McChronicle=], an eccentric scientist that has detected temporal anomalies manifesting on the planet, Rufus must travel in time to prevent Deponia ''and'' Elysium from being destroyed.
