%%Don't pothole to IncrediblyLamePun in this article; it's just punnecessary.

A close parent of FunPersonified: [[SelfDemonstratingArticle A dude who absolutely, positively]], has to pro''pun''d a pun at every possible oppor''pun''ity, no matter how ''pun''ny or un''pun''ny... - in fact, this only aids its ''pun''ishing power. May get ''pun''ctuated with a YouJustHadToSayIt.

This can range from a general breeziness to a [[HurricaneOfPuns full-blown]] ''[[HurricaneOfPuns pun]]''[[HurricaneOfPuns derstorm]], which can come as a bit of a ''blow'' (if it doesn't leave you in ''gales'' of laughter).

If this character is a [[FunnyAnimal Punny Animal]], then they're ''[[FunPersonified Pun]] [[FurryFandom Fursonified]]'' [[CollectiveGroan (please,]] ''[[CollectiveGroan please]]'' [[CollectiveGroan don't kill us).]]

The only known cure for a Pungeon Master is ''pun''icillin (though ''Pun''adol may help to alleviate the induced headaches). [[GotMeDoingIt May spread to other characters]] to cause a ''pun''demic. You may need a lawyer to sue the Pungeon Master for ''pun''itive damages.

When the Pungeon Master fails, it's very ''[[OverlyLongGag pun]]''gent. If EVERYONE is a Pungeon Master, you have on your hands a [[WorldOfPun world-wide]] ''[[WorldOfPun pun]]''[[WorldOfPun omenon]].

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* In Japanese media, it's much easier to make subtle puns that are actually pretty funny because of how Japanese characters can mean one word in Kanji, but in a different character system, like say Kana, it can mean something completely different. To further complicate things, two different character systems can use the same words with the same pronunciation, but mean two different thing, and would have to be deciphered by writing it out to actually ''see'' the difference.
* Rumiko Takahashi's ''UruseiYatsura'' is chock full o puns. For example, the character "Cherry" (He likes to be called that in English, for obvious reasons, even in the Japanese language version) has the Japanese name "Sakuranbou" which can be written as "Cherry" or "The Deranged monk" (and is presented this way when he first says it)—and is indeed a Buddhist monk.
* The [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Team Rocket]] trio is really fond of this in the ''Pokémon'' anime, notably in the Vermilion Gym rematch, right after Pikachu dodges Raichu's Thunderbolt by using its tail:
-->'''Jessie''': What a ''shocking'' story!
-->'''James''': That was quite a ''tale''!
-->* Meowth punches them both*
-->'''Meowth''': And now you have both been ''pun''ished.
** The entire series (and indeed all of Pokémon) is begging for it, since many Pokémon have punny names.
*** A Primeape example of Team Rocket's puns:
--> '''Jessie''': Alright, garden wall! You 'axed' for it! (while wielding an axe)
--> '''James''': We're the toughest team you ever 'saw'! (while wielding a saw)
--> '''Meowth''': Let's cut to the chase! (while wielding two scythes)
--> (Roots from the garden wall attack. Jessie and James are knocked back)
--> '''Jessie''': A timber tantrum, eh!? Let's get to the root of its problem!
--> (They are beaten back. The roots are chasing them)
--> '''James''': I think its bite is as bad as its bark!
** Not to mention the dubbers in making the episode titles. Consider [[SarcasmMode such comedy gold as]] 'Better Eight Than Never,' 'An EGG-sighting Adventure!,' and '[=UnBEARable=]'. These have died down beginning in Unova.
* Izumi from ''MartianSuccessorNadesico''.
-->'''Ryoko''': I got 'im!
-->'''Izumi''': "Got 'im"? Isn't that where Batman lives? (snicker)
* Osaka from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' has a knack for this, although it's apparently unintentional.
* Nagi of ''{{Kannagi}}'' has quite the thing for puns and wordplay, using them (and pointing out accidental ones said by others) whenever possible. Most people just ignore them, but Nagi is quite amused at herself.
* In ''{{Mx0}}'', Michiyo Inui does this because Hiragi finds puns uncontrollably hilarious.
* Manabu Itagaki from ''HajimeNoIppo''.
** Manabu's father is even more so. Even [[MagnificentBastard Mamoru Takamura]] got owned in a pun war against him.
*** Pwned, as you might say.
* ''[[NegimaSecondSeason Negima!?]]'' uses this trope extensively with the usually quiet background character Zazie Rainyday. Even going as far as having Mana Tatsumiya rate her on the puns as well as making a few of her own.
* Brook in ''OnePiece'' is fond of making jokes about his condition as a [[DemBones living skeleton]]. One of first, upon first seeing Nami, is to comment that "I've always had an eye for pretty ladies. Though as a skeleton I ''have'' no eyes! Yohohoho!"
** "Skull joke!"
* ''YakitateJapan'' is definitely not stale when it comes to getting a rise from people...
* In the English dubs of all ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' series, most enemy duelists make puns based on their deck theme and/or gimmick, and the heroes sometimes counter with their own. For example: Arkana made magician and show business puns, Seeker made hunting puns (when Yami Yugi got an advantage over him, Joey quipped that Seeker was now the one on the endangered species list), Aster Phoenix made time and destiny puns (Jaden responded by saying, "Time to summon my Bubbleman! [[DontExplainTheJoke See, I can make witty puns too!]] And just wait til he clocks you!"), Johnson made courtroom puns, etc.
* Kan from ''Manga/{{BioMeat|Nectar}}'' always has to make at least one bad pun each arc. His first one was especially bad, as in a reference to making homemade flamethrowers, he remarked that it was "like lighting fire to a bicycle." The other party members went off without him.
* Hikaru Amane aka Dabide from ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis''. Though he's not as good as he likes to think he is, and his partner Kurobane ends up kicking him in the head as punishment (or as his StraightMan).
* [[ShamanKing Chocolove]]. That is all.
* Izuki from ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke''.
* Shirokuma of ''Manga/ShirokumaCafe'' is a literal [[FunnyAnimal Punny Animal]] who loves his bad puns and is not above wearing weird costumes and crossdressing just for the sake of his horrible puns.
* In ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion'', Takeshi Tsujii, Rei's first opponent in the Shishi Ou Cup, is guilty of uttering really lame puns under his breath during his matches. [[LamePunReaction It psyches Rei out a little]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/{{Robin}} used to be portrayed this way in ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' comics, especially in TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks.
** Holy Punning Puns, Batman!
* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker [[DependingOnTheWriter can be this way]] in some of his tamer adaptations, such as in the campy Sixties Batman and Robin television show.
** Oh, Mr. J is like that in some of his ''scarier'' incarnations, too.
*** [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_p7xbDBFqLSg/TBfzRkHtDQI/AAAAAAAAAfc/y5SJCveR8nM/s1600/batmanthekillingjoke15rd3.jpg For example...]]
* The [[TalesFromTheCrypt Crypt Keeper]], with some ''lethally'' bad lines that never fail to knock 'em ''dead''!
** Parodied in Creator/AlanMoore and RobLiefeld's ''{{Supreme}}'', along with TalesFromTheCrypt's traditional {{Anvilicious}}ness and DisproportionateRetribution, with "The Three Mayhem-maniacs, here to wish you a happy ''grue'' year!"
* ''[[SpiderMan Spider-Man]]''. The man peppers [[TalkingIsAFreeAction every single fight and interaction]] with a sarcastic comment.
** That must be one of Spidey's superpowers. To infuriate his foes with so many puns and goofy comments that they just start flailing wildly.
*** WordOfGod says his SpiderSense and superhuman agility are so finely tuned that he can instinctively dodge most of what's thrown at him, leaving him free to concentrate on quips and snarky comments.
**** Practical analysis of his power set also indicates that he literally thinks faster than people with normal nerve conduction velocity... which would suggest he probably experiences large portions of your average fight in his own personal bullet time. Can you think of a better thing to do than come up with jokes while the world catches up with you?
**** In his first fight with The Kingpin in ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'', Spidey gets his butt absolutely whooped and even his mask taken off and his identity revealed. In his rematch, however, knowing that he wouldn't be able to win with his previous tactics goes with dodging attacks whilst insulting The Kingpin (guess which type of insults) - at one point even stopping to pull out a notepad containing some zingers he prepared earlier. This obviously makes him so angry that Spidey soon gets the upper hand and defeats him. That scene may also count as a ''CrowningMomentOfFunny'' and a ''CrowningMomentOfAwesome''.
**** No less a personage than CaptainAmerica considers this to be a decent battle tactic.
---->"You use humor as a weapon, to keep your opponents off-guard. That's a sound strategy."
**** That and when taking on murderers and more serious criminals he's scared shitless and is just running at the mouth as a coping mechanism.
***** He's classic adrenaline addict -- the same situations that ''should'' scare him shitless actually improve his mood, to the point that he can't help making jokes of everything. In fact, he copes with his personal Angst by jumping off buildings and chasing murderers.
****** He actually refers to this at one point. During one of his personal break downs he questions why he would throw jokes to enemies like Sin-Eater.
* In the same category as Spider-Man, we have SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}. His [[TalkingIsAFreeAction impressive lung capacity]] has been commented on many times in Marvel comics, as well as on his page on this wiki.
* Groucho [[strike: Marx's]] first trait in ''ComicBook/DylanDog''. He keeps telling bad jokes and puns even in the direst situations, in combat and ''while in a coma''.
* King City and Multiple Warheadz creator Brandon Graham likes to fill his stories with puns and [[FunnyBackgroundEvent funny wierdness]] going on around the main characters.
* Cut Man in ''ComicBook/MegaMan'', to the point where even Mega Man cracks a pun after his defeat.
* Every character in STAR Comics ''ComicBook/{{Madballs}}''. In fact, the Madballs character Dust Brain states and is shown having the power of puns (whereas they effect enemies, 4th Wall would also be broken in this instance, if it weren't already knocked down and swept far away from this series from the get), and an enemy named Colonel Corn states and uses the power of lame corn based puns to destroy his enemies (shown to have a legit physical effect). The two naturally have a battle of puns. Other characters introduced latter show to have a similar ability, usually attached to a running theme.
* Many ice-based villains just go nuts with puns. "'''Ice''' to meet you.", "Sorry to give you the '''cold''' shoulder.", "'''Freeze'''!", etc. In a bit of lampshading, when [[Characters/TheFlash Chillblaine and Captain Cold]] were fighting, the following dialogue takes place:
--->'''Chillbaine''': You're an absolute '''Zero'''!!
--->'''Captain Cold''': Kid I outgrew that [[SymbolSwearing $#!^]] years ago.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Pinkie Pie in ''Fanfic/{{Cupcakes}}'' as she is brutally ripping Rainbow Dash's organs out. Her puns are worse than the ''graphic description of the murder.''
* [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Spike]] in the ''WebAnimation/PonyDotMov'' series, as confirmed in MAGIC.MOV.
* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] in the ''FanFic/PaperMarioX'' series. Zelda, too, to an extent, to the point where [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Amy]] claims that she has been hanging out with Link too much.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* AustinPowers (as a parody of the BondOneLiner). You might say it's a ''Pun''ishment Worse Than Death!
** Austin Powers hanging from Dr. Evil's recently pulled down pants: "You know Dr. Evil, I used to think you're crazy, but now I can see your nuts."
*** "A-thank you!"
** Dr. Evil himself: "Welcome to my submarine lair! It's long and hard and full of seamen!"
*** "Nothing? Not even a titter?"
* The title character from ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}''.
* Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger's Mr. Freeze in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''. Here's a montage of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRH-Ywpz1_I all the "ice" jokes came up with]].
* [[TheMarxBrothers Groucho and Chico]]. [[TheSpeechless Harpo]], not so much. Not [[TheComicallySerious Zeppo]] either...
** Harpo counts if you allow [[VisualPun puns of the visual variety]].
* Mrs. Peel in ''Film/TheAvengers1998''.
** "Mother tells me he left under..." "A cloud?" "Naturally."
** "Frankly I'm amazed" as they're walking through a maze.
** After she falls down a hole and is captured by Sir August: "I thought I'd drop in."
* The Hoover Dam tour guide from ''Vegas Vacation'' is dam fond of puns.
* Film/JamesBond, as portrayed by Creator/PierceBrosnan. In ''Film/GoldenEye'', even when on the verge of being killed, he cannot help, but spin puns at the drop of a hat.
* In the horror anthology film ''Film/BodyBags'', Creator/JohnCarpenter's host character the Coroner makes several death-related puns every other minute.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''{{Lolita}}'': Humbert Humbert not only loves punning in his head and out loud, but also does so across English, German, French, and Latin.
* Owlfred from ''Literature/ProjectNRI''. Even his name is a pun.
-->"One at a time! We do not want any fowl play now!"
-->[[spoiler: "It seems that a fowl crime has occurred!"]]
* ''StarWars ExpandedUniverse'':
** Jacen Solo, during the "Young Jedi Knights" series. He gets better afterward. [[spoiler: Or rather, ''[[FaceHeelTurn worse]].'']]
*** The ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce''-series put good use of this. In the final book of the series, where Jacen had completed his FaceHeelTurn, called himself Darth Caedus and was the unquestionable BigBad, every chapter started with a horrible pun, quoted from Jacen, age 14-16.
** Also [[XWingSeries Wes Janson]], all the time unless things are ''really'' bad. (And Wedge, after that [[spoiler: night with Iella.]] But can you blame him?) Fittingly, [[spoiler: while Jacen is turning evil, Janson (via Wedge) calls him on it, citing the loss of his humor as a symptom.]]
* Abby from ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub''.
* PiersAnthony, ESPECIALLY his Magic of ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' series. It got to the point that, after the first few books, fans were sending in puns by the dozen for him to use. He made a point of using as many of them as possible. And in his "Crewel Lye" the editor made a point of leaving the first chapter out, since it was filled with fan puns.
* PeterDavid, especially in his ''Sir Apropos of Nothing'' novels.
* Almost all of the characters in Spider Robinson's ''Literature/CallahansCrosstimeSaloon'' stories.
** ''Callahan's Lady'' in particular tends to feature puns in a more serious way. And not so seriously. It's a grand mix.
* Creator/TerryPratchett cannot write a paragraph without some kind of pun, or play on words.
** To an extent; both ''The Discworld Companion'' and ''GURPS Discworld'' distinguish between the sort of wordplay Pratchett enjoys and what the GURPS book calls "grinding, humourless punning", and say that there are fewer actual ''puns'' in the book than you'd expect - when a character does make a pun, the humour usually comes from other characters not finding it funny.
* Creator/IsaacAsimov loved puns. From the author's note of the very short story, ''A Loint of Paw'' (a play on the words "A Point of Law"):
--->A play on words the noblest form of wit.
** The plot involves a criminal named Stein who stole money, then entered a time machine set for the day after the statute of limitations for his crime expired. The story tells how the case against Stein was prosecuted and defended, and the judge's eventual ruling delivered in the form of a pun.
*** The pun, for those left hanging, is [[spoiler:"A niche in time saves Stein."]]
** He also wrote ''Shah Guido G'', later described as a ShaggyDogStory (get it?). In it, a flying island named Atlantis [[spoiler:crashes under the collective weight of its own soldiers, who are known as Waves.]]
* Captain Jack Aubrey, of the ''Literature/AubreyMaturin'' series. From a "getting to the point" joke involving narwhal tusks to the infamous "lesser of two weevils" that was also in TheFilmOfTheBook, this man is always making horrible puns. And he laughs riotously at them all.
* In ''The Harvard Lampoon'''s ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' parody, ''Literature/BoredOfTheRings'', Birdseye subjects Moxie and Pepsi (read Treebeard, Merry, and Pippin, respectively) to a truly atrocious series of produce-related puns.
* ''Literature/FinnegansWake''. Practically every sentence includes a pun. Most of which you won't get unless you read fluent French, German, Latin, Greek, and Spanish. And in ''Ulysses'' (pointed out by the endnotes), "he [Bloom] ate kidneys with relish"
* The Mock Turtle and the Gryphon in ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''.
* {{Feghoot}} writers as a whole.
* Harry Turtledove is also a fan of puns, and several can be found in all of his works. ''Literature/TheCaseOfTheToxicSpellDump'' he once described as the fastest book he ever wrote, because all he had to do was keep coming up with increasingly worse puns. Forget [[strike:Nick]] ''Frank'' Castle--HT is the ''real'' Punnisher!
* Creator/AnthonyHorowitz. Just look at the titles of the DiamondBrothers books, which are things like ''The Falcons Malteser'', and the ''Literature/GrooshamGrange'' books. Even in the more serious ''Literature/AlexRider'' series he can't stop himself slipping in puns wherever possible.
* Lieutenant T'Ryssa Chen in the ''Literature/StarTrekTheNextGenerationRelaunch'' novels. She's carried it over to the ''Literature/StarTrekTyphonPact'' series; the highlight this time is her referring to Kinshaya engaging in non-violent protests as "hippie-griffs" (Kinshaya being the Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse's OurGryphonsAreDifferent race).
* Bone, TheMadHatter {{Expy}} from Patrick Senecal's ''Aliss,'' puns constantly, usually with frightening instead of funny results. The only person entertained by Bone's wordplay is his equally terrifying lover, Chair (the March Hare), who also puns at the drop of a hat.
* Jasper Fforde is a strong contender for the world leader in puns. Don't believe me? Just read the list of characters from any given novel.
* Robotnik in ''Literature/SonicTheHedgehogInRobotniksLaboratory'' just can't keep himself from adding the word "egg" into anything that begins with a E. What's worse is that this is infectious and everything ends up doing it, including the author.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Dean Pelton from ''{{Community}}''. A google search for Dean Pelton puns return pages of best of lists.
* In the TV version of ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'', the Cryptkeeper makes morbid puns before and after every tale he tells.
* Both on-screen on ''Series/WhatsMyLine'' and off in his personial life, Bennett Cerf was THE Pungeon Master for the 50s and 60s up to his death in the early 70s.
* Ditto Wink Martindale, particularly on ''Series/TicTacDough''.
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' spoofed this in a fantasy episode where Harvey was a Film/JamesBond-esque secret agent. At one point, the villain [Mr. Kraft] proclaimed "I'll kill you, Kinkle! If only to stop the puns!"
* Chandler from ''{{Friends}}'' can be like this from time to time, particularly in ''pun''comfortable situations.
* The entire cast of ''Series/MythBusters'', ''especially'' narrator Robert Lee. Yes, even ''[[TheStoic Jamie]]'' gets in on it.
** Kari might deserve special mention here, as her puns are so bad that even Grant and Tory are driven to groaning by them.
* Lee Mack's character in British SitCom ''NotGoingOut'', to the point where he is made to go and see a psychiatrist (his friends wonder if he's [[SadClown covering up for something]]).
* And how can we forget JD from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''?
** Dr. Cox says he wishes for the day JD will not refer to cream cheese as "cow fudge".
-->'''JD:''' "I like to play with words."
* In a game of "superheroes" in ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', Colin once played the role of Mr. Continuous Unfunny Pun Man.
-->'''Greg:''' The world leaders are about to die in a plane crash!\\
'''Colin:''' Well that's ''plane'' to see!
** Speaking of Colin Mochrie, his "reindeer in Spain was hit mainly by the plane" gag in a Weird Newscasters, not to mention just about every one of his hoedowns, established him as the greatest PungeonMaster on that show.
*** Really, Colin had spectacular puns in most (if not all) of his Weird Newscasters bits. He was the master of the OverlyPrepreparedGag.
** A particularly Punishing hoedown from Colin:
-->'''Colin''': I am quite unbalanced, my mind is not that steady, I once pummeled a guy with an Eveready. They took me down to jail and they arrested me, and they charged me with assault with a battery.
* Hawkeye and B.J. on ''Series/{{Mash}}''. Actually, most of the cast trended this way over time.
* [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] has a tendency towards this kind of behavior. It's particularly bad with [[TheNthDoctor the Eighth Doctor]], although having companions with names like Fitz and Trix may be partly to blame.
* Louis Rukeyser of ''Wall Street Week with Louis Rukeyser''.
* What, no [[Series/CSIMiami Horatio Cane]]? Was the entry about the Internet meme focusing on his morbid jokes... *GlassesPull* ...ex''pun''ged?
** ''''[[MemeticMutation YEEEAAAAAAAHHH]]!'''
* Richard Whitely, of {{Countdown}}. Endlessly, and relentlessly, parodied, sent up and otherwise mocked by everyone else in television, ever.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'''s version of Zatanna has a tendency to make magician and show business puns.
* Araya and Doubting Dave in ''MysteryHunters'' both get groans, usually from Christina.
* TwoWords: [[Series/{{CSI}} Gil Grissom.]]
* Ralph "I still got it!" Malph on ''HappyDays''.
* Mr. Baggy Pants on ''Series/RemoteControl''.
* Carly in ''Series/ICarly''. Example, when discussing how their entire building has suffered the theft of all TV remotes:
---> ''Other character'' : "What kind of person would go around stealing tv remotes?"
---> ''Carly'': A.. remote control freak.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in "Helpless": "If I were at full Slayer strength, I'd be punning right now."
* In [[Series/{{Batman}} the 60's Batman show]], most villains spouted puns based on his or her 'theme'. (Cat-astrophic, etc...)
** Egghead might be the worst. Seriously, do a shot every time he substitutes something with the word egg. You'll probably die of alcohol poisoning in a few minutes.
* Robbie Ray on ''Series/HannahMontana''. The terribleness of his puns are one of the show's [[RunningGag Running Gags]].
* The older vampires in ''Series/TrueBlood'' were explicitly stated to be fans of humourous wordplay:
-->'''Sookie Stackhouse''': Fang-tasia?
-->'''Bill Compton''': You have to remember that most vampires are very old. Puns used to be the highest form of humor.
* A villainous version was the MonsterOfTheWeek Eye Guy from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', who was... [[MeaningfulName made of eyes]]. He made a lot of puns that used the word "eye"; for example, when Rita or Goldar told him to do something, he'd salute and say, "Eye-eye!" (He meant "Aye-aye!") Even the title of the episode where he debuted was a pun: "I, Eye Guy". Still, Rita seemed to like him a ''lot'' given how he showed some attraction and loyalty to her, calling her "lovely" and "a sight for sore eyes".
** The less-iconic See Monster from [=MMPR=] season three was another pun-spouter - apparently eye jokes lend themselves to this? After one bad joke too many, Tommy told Billy to give him one "right between the eyes".
* Fozzie of ''[[TheMuppetShow The Muppet Show]]'' fame is truly un-bear-able.
* Just about every character in the German dub of ''Series/ThePersuaders''. In comparison with the rest of the cast, though, it's Danny Wilde.
* ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'': Kyoryu Blue has a habit of cracking what his team-mates refer to as 'old man puns' (as a 30-something, he is pretty old for a sentai hero). At one point, the team leader Kyoryu Red praises him for it, since he appears to have a (lame) pun for literally every occasion.
* Ron MacLean of ''HockeyNightInCanada''. Almost [[OnceAnEpisode once a broadcast]] you can expect to hear some kind of pun about something that happened during the game or something that was brought up to him in conversation. They're almost always spur of the moment, and some- like the TorontoStar's Chris Zelkovich and MacLean's own on-screen partner, Don Cherry- have made note about how cringe worthy his puns can get.
** Creator/JimmyCarr has a whole segment devoted to puns in ''Series/TenOClockLive''. He seems to revel in make bading off-colour puns and then playing the audience's reaction against themselves to make it funny.
* [[WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus The Magic School Bus]]: Carlos. Just....Carlos.
* Creator/SoupySales. He'd deliver a groan-worthy ''pun''chline, followed by a pleased-as-''pun''ch grin and chortle - only to be [[TakeThat hit with a]] PieInTheFace.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The band Alkaline Trio has released albums called "From Here to Infirmary" and "Good Mourning" and have penned lyrics such as "a farewell to arms, and legs and heads..." It's good music, but unarguably groan-compelling.
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "Party at the Leper Colony" is made of this. Actually, he throws them out so fast (and the puns are so morbid) that it's very enjoyable.
* BoBurnham's music is so full of puns and double entendre that it would be hard to find a line that doesn't fit this trope.
* Kitananx is one, but doesn't use so many of them in his songs. He used one in "Meatheads, Meatheads, Everywhere," though.
-> "He seems to be better than that PRESIDENT EVIL George W. Bush, though...
* Creator/MichaelGiacchino ''owns'' this trope in the field of film and television scoring, and possibly in the world as well. The following is by no means a complete list...
** "If You Don't Make It, It's Your Own Damn Vault" (''Series/LandOfTheLost'')
** "Dug The Birdie Hunter" (''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'' - not on the soundtrack album, but included on the FYC promo)
** "Hella Bar Talk" (''Film/StarTrek'')
** "Killer In-Stinks" (''LetMeIn'')
** "Lithe Or Death" (''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'')
** "Grand Ol' Prix" (''Anime/SpeedRacer'')
** "Alex In Chains" (''Series/{{Lost}} Season 5'')
** "Disguise The Limit" (''[[MissionImpossible Mission: Impossible III]]'')
** "Kiss & Vinegar" (''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'')
** "Locke At It This Way" (''Series/{{Lost}}: The Final Season'')
** "Aftermath Class" (''Series/{{Alias}}: Season 2'')
** "Thark Side of Barsoom" (Film/{{John Carter}})
* British indie band [[CarterTheUnstoppableSexMachine Carter USM's]] songs are filled with these, which often makes the lyrics very hard to write down, even though they sound great out loud. Is it "Triple ex-directory", "Triple X directory" or "XXX directory"?
* A lot of the more lyrical rappers count - notable examples being {{Eminem}} and {{Jay-Z}}.
* [[Music/{{Jellyfish}} Jellyfish]]'s lead vocalist/drummer/co-songwriter Andy Sturmer seems to provide this in their albums. Roger Joseph Manning Jr., his songwriting partner, tends to write lyrics in this manner, too.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* The entire Patterson clan in ''ForBetterOrForWorse''. Grandpa Jim can't even speak much and is [[WringEveryLastDropOutOfHim close to death]], and he STILL makes puns in his head.
* ''FrankAndErnest'' is this trope and nothing but.
* ''FunkyWinkerbean'' has more than its far share, but instead of being humorous, most are incredibly somber or death/fate related. This fact is a driving point of [[TheComicsCurmudgeon the Curmudgeon's]] hatred of the strip.
* Grandpa from ''OneBigHappy'' gets in a good one now and then.
* Stephan Pastis of ''PearlsBeforeSwine'' forces his characters into this role. They call him (or at least his AuthorAvatar) out on it.
* The entire world of Australian comic ''Snake''. The eponymous reptile is particularly bad about it, but everyone else gets the opportunity to say something groanworthy; it's just that Snake, being TheChewToy, is the one most likely to end up smashed under his own rock or thrown into the river tied to a brick as a result.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* The Crypt Keeper in Creator/DataEastPinball's ''Pinball/TalesFromTheCrypt'', who delivers a nonstop litany of [[IncrediblyLamePun bad]] horror-themed puns throughout the game.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Former pro wrestler Mick Foley seems to just adore bad puns and awful jokes, as evidenced by his books and his work as color commentator on ''Wrestling/{{WWE}} Smackdown''. With him, though, it's an endearing trait, not an infuriating one.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* Shane Weston in ''Series/{{Joe 90}}'' can never resist a lousy pun. And why should he, since his name is a lousy pun in the first place?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Radio]]
* OncePerEpisode on ''The Life of Riley'', Riley would run into his pal Digby "Digger" O'Dell, "The Friendly Undertaker", who could always be counted upon to unleash several dreadful puns related to [[BlackComedy his (flat)line of work]]. A typical exchange would begin with Digger noting that Riley was "looking very...natural", and end with him saying, "I'd better be...shoveling off."
* ''A Prairie Home Companion'' has several regular features which are comprised primarily of extremely painful puns. Probably the most egregious being Guy Noir, Private Eye.
* In the CNN Student News Podcast, Carl Azuz makes a pun at the end of every episode, extremely lame ones at that.
* The teams on ''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue'' - especially Graeme and Barry as Hamish and Dougal.
* Lou Costello of AbbottAndCostello, given most of their humor was puns and deliberate misunderstandings of a punny nature.
* Steve Patterson, host of Radio/TheDebaters, is notorious for his punny discourse, and seems to take great pleasure in making the audience groan.
* Jim Norton of ''The OpieAndAnthony Show'' will sometimes adopt the persona of Lyle "Chip" Chipperson, a nebbish with a penchant for really awful puns. (Tssf, how 'bout a ''pencil-chant'' or somethin'?)
* In the ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho'' audio books, the [[TheNthDoctor Eigth]] [[Creator/PaulMcGann Doctor]] seems to love wordplay, aside from being a GeniusDitz. At one point he's about to be eaten by a GiantEnemyCrab and quips the creature is being ''[[{{Pun}} shellfish]]'' and then muses those were some horrible FamousLastWords to go out on.

* OlderThanFeudalism: {{God}} Himself made a few puns in ''Literature/TheBible''. The puns don't always translate, though.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sport]]
* Jeff Stelling from ''SoccerSaturday''.
* The webmasters of the National Hockey League's website has a habit of naming the highlight videos from recent games in the most punny way possible.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''{{GURPS}}'' has the surprisingly effective advantage Rapier Wit. Not only is the victim stunned but a good enough (or bad enough) joke can physically harm an opponent. Talk about "cutting remarks"...
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespearean]] examples:
** Mercutio from ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' pretty much lives and breathes in horrible puns. At one point he even has a mock "contest of wits" with Romeo which consisted of both of them [[MundaneMadeAwesome trying to out-pun each other]]. Even when he's dying, he can't resist the allure of a pun, saying "ask for me tomorrow and you will find me a grave man".
** The main character of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' does the same thing; it's just harder to notice because he's so [[EmoTeen melancholy]]. Arguably Mercutio is what Hamlet would be if he weren't the main character of a revenge tragedy.
** In ''Theatre/TwoGentlemenOfVerona'', token servant Launce is the main punner. For example, after Valentine learns that he's been banished from Milan, he {{angst}}ily claims to be "nothing". Launce's response:
--->Sir, there is a proclamation that you are ''vanished''.
** Launcelot, a similar servant in ''Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice''. Notably, he's told by Lorenzo that "every fool can play upon the word!" (translation: "Any idiot can make puns!") and gets his revenge by finding a double meaning in everything Lorenzo says. Told he's gotten a "moor" pregnant, he avoids an awkward exchange (or perhaps even makes it worse):
---> It is ''much'' that the ''moor'' should be ''more'' than reason, but if she be ''less'' than an honest woman, she is indeed ''more'' than I took her for!
* In ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'', Richard Henry Lee absolute-''Lee'' has to make a pun on his name every time he says an adverb.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Theme Parks]]
* The Ghost Host from ''TheHauntedMansion'' and various other shows at DisneyThemeParks. Usually has to do with his status.
-->''"Right this way, and as they say...look alive!"''
-->''"Why, you're dead right!"''
-->''"Why it's [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid the Sea Witch]]! So nice of you to plop in!"''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Dr. Morris in ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Advance Wars: Days of Ruin]]''. He's unequivocally the absolute worst ever.
-->"I used to be a resident, but now I'm ''president!'' Ohohoho... Perhaps you didn't hear me, I said --"
-->"I heard you."
* ''PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice For All'' has one of these in the shape of a clown, Moe.
** Don't forget Phoenix (unwillingly) getting into the action himself early on in the case. "Why am I, Phoenix Wright, such a great attorney? Because I'm ''Wright'' all the time!".
** In ''Trials and Tribulations'', it seems to have rubbed off on Phoenix and Maya, as they start making puns at inappropriate times.
** The writers of the ''Ace Attorney'' series in general fit this trope, too. [[PunnyName The vast majority of names in the games are puns in one way or another.]] For instance, the aforementioned Moe the Clown's real name is [[Film/TheThreeStooges Lawrence Curls]]. The owner of Blue Corp is Redd White, while Wendy Oldbag is definitely [[MotorMouth a windy old bag]] of a woman. Lotta Hart is a [[SouthernBelle Southerner]] with a passion for photography, and then there's Sal Manella, Penny Nichols, April May, Mack Rell, Shelly de Killer (who is, indeed, de killer), a victim called Deid Mann, Frank Sahwit (who claims that he did, indeed, see it), the sisters Ini and Mimi Miney, and the flight attendant Cammy Meele, to name a few. And it doesn't end there. There's Russell Berry's circus, the Berry ([[DontExplainTheJoke Very]]) Big Circus, and the nations of Allebahst (Alabaster) and Babahl (Babel), for instance.
* The developers of Creator/ArtixEntertainment seem to be so, due to the HurricaneOfPuns that are their games. Artix von Kreiger isn't called the "punladin" for nothing.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'''s Chairman Shuji Ikutsuki tells the worst puns imaginable pretty much constantly.
** One event in the game involves putting on an impromptu BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine with one of your friends, which pretty much requires (for a good show, anyway) that you come up with horrible puns. Your friend even compares you to Ikutsuki.
* Teddie from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' isn't ''quite'' as bad as Ikutsuki, but still quite un-bear-able.
** The protagonist also gets the chance to deliver a few groaners. Whether or not he does depends on the player.
** This is the result of their [[TranslationStyleChoices Translation Style Choice]], naturally; in the Japanese, he ends his sentences with "kuma" or some variation thereof (it means "bear", and also happens to be his name). They decided to treat English-language players to a real (wait for it...!) bear (ha!) instead of subjecting them to his VerbalTic. Well, some would rather have it the other way, perhaps.
* Wigglytuff from ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon: Explorers of Sky/Time/Darkness'' apparently was one when he was younger. For example, upon falling into a pit, he says "Oh, for ''pit''y's sake..."
* In ''NetHack'', if a pit viper or pit fiend falls into a pit, it says "How pitiful! Isn't that the pits?"
* ALL Gnomes in the ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' world do this. They're all jesters and whatnot.
** Even THE NARRATOR of the games is this.
** Don't forget the wizard Erasmus and his {{familiar}}, Fenrus (or is that the other way around?)
* Ernie Steele from ''VideoGame/BackyardSports''.
* Higashizawa and Minamimoto in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'', specializing in food and math puns, respectively.
* [[EccentricMentor Galuf]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''.
-->'''Galuf:''' Don't push it, kid. Here in Bal, bad jokes like that will get you [=PUNished=].
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' shouldn't be overlooked, although its puns are too numerous to list here. Really, the game sometimes seems little more than a vehicle for punnery. The puns are sometimes delivered semi-apologetically, as in this snippet from a fight with a Bread Golem:
-->This is a golem made out of a loaf of bread. You find him crusty and his wit stale. Having thought the previous sentence, you almost hope he manages to kick your ass.
* Infel from ''ArTonelico2''. That she's a MadScientist [[spoiler: and the BigBad]] doesn't help it. No wonder that [[LesYay only Nenesha can stand being near her]].
* The Seer Terror minigame in ''[[VideoGame/MarioParty Mario Party 6]]'' has a basic premise of "Pull the rope, something happens, Bowser makes a bad pun out of it". He has nearly half an hour's worth of them, for reference.
* Many, ''many'' units in the ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert Red Alert]]'' series.
* Vladimir from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' is on the bleeding edge of blood-related puns.
* Ms. Fortune from ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' is a ClassyCatBurglar turned brawler with a penchant for excruciatingly punny {{Pre Mortem One Liner}}s -- even the name she goes by is an intentional pun.
** After being literally torn to shreds by the Mafia, she was resurrected by the Life Gem she and her gang had stolen (and swallowed in desperation to keep it away from the Mafia). She gained the ability to use DetachmentCombat...and came up with even more bad puns, this time about body parts. This includes such lines like "Remember remember, the Fifth of Dismember!" and "Time to pull myself together..."
* [[PigMan Edgar Oinkie]] and [[ALoadOfBull Big Bull]] of ''VideoGame/AnarchyReigns'', who makes pig puns and bull puns respectively.
* In ''XMenLegends'', Iceman is on full [[Film/BatmanAndRobin Mr. Freeze]] mode ("I'm even cooler now"). A few bosses indulge in this too, such as [[GravityMaster Abyss]] ("[[GravitySucks This sucks, doesn't it!]]" "Sorry for being such a drag!").
* Several [[VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors Zero]] [[VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward Escape]] characters do this, most notably Junpei, Sigma, and Zero III.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Lulu. While all characters will say a PremortemOneLiner before using a new attack, when she uses a new black magic spell, she always comes out with a pun. ''Always''. ([[spoiler:Except Flare and Ultima, for which she says '''"Know pain'"''' and '''"Know pain... but not for long."''']])
--> (Casting Thunder) "Don't be ''shocked''!"
** Tidus' time magic spells also result in some gems:
--> (Casting Haste) "This'll be ''quick''!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* The entire [[DominicDeegan Deegan family]], and many others, too. At one point, Dominic actually ended up ''in jail'' for using inappropriate puns around the mayor. (Granted, she was pissed at him to begin with, but still...) He comments that "This time, the pun-ishment fit the crime."
** For Dominic, it's gotten so bad lately that he's made terrible puns without even realizing it!
* When Elan from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' decides to take the Dashing Swordsman prestige class, he learns the pun is mightier than the sword. As long as he can bring a pun to a knife fight, he's a pun-man army. His weakness arises when he runs out of good material, and his quips get so bad that they [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] it.
** Elan later duels [[spoiler:his father]] who it turns out knows how to defend himself against many obscure combat techniques, leading to a pun duel between them.
** Elan's mentor, [[SkyPirate Julio]] [[LoveableRogue Scoundrel]], is also a master at pun dueling. He taught Elan how to use his charisma to compensate for a relative lack of combat ability.
* You can hardly read a week of ''IrregularWebcomic'' strips without running into at least one pun. As such, many of the characters are {{Pungeon Master}}s.
** It seems that Lambert ''[[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/690.html must]]'' make a "Hobbit" pun every 100 strips or so. His [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/690.html use]] of these puns is {{Lampshaded}} [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/590.html many]] [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/557.html times]].
*** This ContractualGag has been [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1996.html here]] by David, knowing that we here at TVTropes anticipated yet another [[IncrediblyLamePun hobbit pun]]. It has also been {{subverted}} by having other characters make the [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1296.html puns]] [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1496.html instead]].
* ''ComicStrip/WhatsNewWithPhilAndDixie'' describes a proposed 'Jester' archetype for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', who is [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/growfcomic.php?date=20071014 shown to kill monsters with pun-attacks]]. (And, not incidentally, his party, demonstrating that Puns aren't picky about targets.)
* Ennesby in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. Traditionally, his puns are followed by threatened physical harm.
* Father Gregori is this at first in ''{{Concerned}}''.
* Torg in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' becomes one with the slightest encouragement. Riff gives him nothing but encouragement, and they circle each other in a HurricaneOfPuns.
* Rich in ''Loaded Dice'' is known to drop puns at [[http://www.rdinn.com/comic.php?comicid=18 essentially]] any [[http://www.rdinn.com/comic.php?comicid=59 opportunity]], which naturally earns him the [[http://www.rdinn.com/comic.php?comicid=59 ire of the other players]].
* One of the characters in ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' will drop atrocious puns in Equally bad situations.
* Bad puns form the typing quirks of some of the trolls in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Nepeta (Leo) is a ple''fur''ra of cat-related puns, Equius (Saggitarius) says 'neigh' for 'nay', and Eridan and Feferi have this exchange:
-->'''CC:''' DON'T YOU GLUB IN T)(AT TON-E OF GLUB WIT)( M-E MIST-ER!\\
'''CA:''' ill glub in wwhatevver dumbass bubbly soundin fishnoise i wwant to glub\\
'''CC:''' O)( S)(IT, you are angling for SO MUC)( TROUBL-E NOW.\\
'''CA:''' ok please lets just not get into the wwhole fuckin fish pun thing again ok\\
'''CA:''' like wwe get it wwe are nautically themed
** Even the first token silly character calls Feferi out on her fish puns... especially when they are so contrived that it's... fishy.
** Meenah in particular loves fish puns so much that she has declared that they are her only weakness.
* Not to mention Professor Bee, the protips program from Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures' previous story, ''ProblemSleuth''. He rounded off a hurricane of bee puns with:
-->'...That will ''bee'' one ''honey'' of a rave!\\
\\
I'm a bee!"
* Claire of ''QuestionableContent'' ''wants'' to be a PungeonMaster, but her puns rarely elicit anything a a [[LamePunReaction disappointed silence]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* This is the single most important aspect of [[WebVideo/TheTimeGuys Dr. Chronos's]] character.
** [[TheGrimReaper Death]] also makes about a dozen death puns in every episode he's in.
*** And when the two of them have a scene together...
--> '''Timmy''': So, what do you do exactly?
--> '''Death''': Well, I just show up there when people die, and I escort them into the afterlife.
--> '''Timmy''': That sounds kind of boring.
--> '''Death''': Well, ''it's a living''!
--> '''Doc''': Boy, Death sure has a ''grim'' sense of humor.
--> '''Timmy''': [''turns to camera''] Kill me.
--> '''Death''': Watch yourself, now!
* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara's]] former co-personality and conspirator, Iron Liz has a reputation for being an incorrigible punster. Don't incorrige her... [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Oh god it's contagious! ]]

* Egg farmer Masayuki of the animated web series ''BrokenSaints'' cannot resist making egg-related puns every chance he gets.
* Rob from ''DimensionHeroes'' fits this trope to a T. Thankfully, his bad puns usually result in him getting smacked upside the head by one of the other characters.
* [[MyDrunkKitchen Hannah Hart]] has become known for her food puns.
* Go listen to the Football Weekly podcast at ''[[BritishNewspapers The Guardian]]''. The host, James Richardson is either punniest man alive or the most pungent.
** Just some samples of some of his puns. When told that some Spanish football clubs rewarded their players with food, he asked, "Did they have a lobster clause in their contract?"
** When told that some Ipswich fans reacted badly at the appointment of Roy Keane as manager, he remarked, "There's no pleasing Suffolk."
* [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP-504]] is the polar opposite of this trope: if someone makes a lame pun, a horrifyingly bad joke, or even simply repeats a poorly-phrased sentence, it reacts. Violently.
* Daniel Kiser, from EpicbattleAxe.com's weekly podcast Epic Battle Cry, is addicted to punning.
* '''Us'''. Seriously. Look how many pages that link to IncrediblyLamePun where the PotHole in question ''is'' one.
** Also, the index page SortingAlgorithmOfTropes was clearly written by a PungeonMaster.
* Ferr from the LetsPlay/FreelanceAstronauts is a notorious punner.
** Maxwell Adams notes that the best thing about puns is making other people listen to them.
** [[LargeHam pipes!]] also takes up the punning duties on occasion.
* Andy Zaltzman of ''TheBugle'' podcast. In one episode he once did a runner of 22 North Korea-based puns, and later told an story about Lou Reed's concert for dogs which included ''34'' dog puns. Fellow co-host John Oliver is not the biggest fan of them.
* Rutskarn of choclate hammer and the ''SpoilerWarning'' LetsPlay series.
* [[HellfireCommentaries NTom64]] is a HUGE Pungeon Master. He has claimed it himself, and he most certainly can [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ylLhSyyGTo back it up]].
* The main character from ''TheAnnoyingOrange'', much to the annoyance to almost everyone else in the show.
* {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}} is well known for this in his {{Lets Play}}s. His puns are generally met with a CollectiveGroan from LetsPlay/ProtonJon and LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun when they play together as LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys.
** Chugga's puns are possibly [[UpToEleven even more]] [[HurricaneOfPuns frequent]] with LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys, to the point where it seems to have rubbed off on the other Guys; while less often than Chugga, LetsPlay/ProtonJon and LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun start breaking out puns occasionally too.
* Cyrus from ''{{Spill}}'', earning him the nickname '''The [=PUNisher=]'''
* Everyone in ''WebVideo/HolyMusicalBatman!'' loves a good pun but [[BigBad Sweet Tooth]] takes it UpToEleven at every opportunity. He, literally, has a prop for every pun too.
* Knife Man Guy from ''The Adventures of Riot Shield Man and Knife Man...Guy''. And how. Practically everything he says is a knife pun. All of them are cringe-worthy, but the ''shear'' amount he can ''knife out'' is admirable, even if some of them are ob''skewer''.
* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', the TimeMaster [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividuals parahuman]] Phir Sē is a great fan of wordplay -- referring to [[spoiler:a massive laser created by shining light between his two time travel portals]] as a "time bomb", and pointing out the humor in Taylor ([[TheMinionMaster whose power controls insects]]) talking about "working on a smaller scale".
* And hey, some [[{{Troper}} Vigilante Taxonomists]] on ThisVeryWiki. Just check out the [[AllBlueEntry all blue]] [[TheStinger stinger]] to PsychoElectro.
* [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash Bozard]] is critical of journalists who aspire to this, seeing it as an unnecessary distraction from actually informing the reader about the news. If a news article begins with a lame pun, he and his co-host will almost always cut themselves off to look for the byline and call the writer out by name.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Numbuh Two in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''.
* Flash's status as one of these is {{lampshaded}} in the ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode ''Dead Reckoning'', after the team reverses a transformation that had turned them into monkeys.
--> "Everything okay?"\\
"Well, I do miss Flash's obligatory joke about how Grodd made a monkey out of us."\\
"You just had to say it, didn't you?"\\
"Obligatory."
** Speaking of which: in the first-season episode introducing Grodd, he taunted the villain by calling him the "gorilla my dreams".
*** But when it comes to capers, Flash doesn't monkey around.
*** The rest of the League would go ape if he did.
*** You guys are driving me bananas!
*** Cut it out or we'll have to orangu''tan'' your hide.[[note]]I cannot believe I just typed that.[[/note]]
*** This is turning into a baboondoggle.
* [[CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Captain Planet]] [[CallingYourAttacks announces every move he makes]] with this kind of pun.
** Parodied by at least one episode of "TV Funhouse" on ''{{SNL}}'', in which the hero came up with a long, drawn-out series of increasingly awful torments for his defeated opponent, accompanied by increasingly awful puns. It ended, as I recall, with the character's mind snapping -- he ends the episode further bludgeoning the villain's unrecognizably mutilated remains and [[FreudianExcuse sobbing incoherently about his parents]].
* ''{{MASK}}'' has T-Bob has this.
* Carlos from ''TheMagicSchoolBus''. His classmates found most of his jokes to be eye-rollingly awful.
** [[InTheBlood The same apparently applies to his father.]]
*** I guess it's like father, like pun.
* One word: ''[[Series/{{Beetleborgs}} Flabber]]''. Flabtastic!
* TwoWords: ''MagillaGorilla''. Even worse in his appearance on ''HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'', though he's roundly mocked for it, of course.
** "Thanks for the lift, Eagle! If you were an ape, you'd be the GORILLA my dreams!"
*** -cue the Eagle pecking the hell out of Magilla's face "cawcawcawcawcawcaw!"
* Remember the Ruby-Spears ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'' cartoon? ''Every single character'' (who wasn't a [[BrotherChuck one-off]], that is) was appointed Pungeon Master. Better yet, some Masters were themed (Cutman made scissor- and cut-related puns, for one). And of course, [[HaveAGayOldTime they didn't always check Urban Dictionary.]]
* Punsie [=McKale=] from ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'', in the episode "Pun Times (with Punsie [=McKale=])".
* One-time ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' villain The Mathter had a constant stream of terrible maths-related puns.
** Just when you think the puns have run out, they keep multiplying.
** Please, don't add any more to this example. The supply of funny associated with it has been decimated, and we don't need any more division among the ranks. Anybody who puts more examples here is a square.
** Don't get mod, lame puns are pretty integral to this page, though they are pretty tangential.
** It's a sin, and they're pretty tanned out, but they'll keep on adding them just 'cos.
** Allow me to serve as the prime exponent of the notion (by no means imaginary) that these puns would have a point if they were more complex.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Sokka. Enough said...or it would be until we learn he's [[InTheBlood just like his father]].
** Like father, like pun.
* There's an entire ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode spent on playing with puns (more so than usual). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_omEwOtNzy4 This Pun For Hire]]
* Xandir from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' is definitely this.
* WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} from the cartoon, especially.
** Beetlejuice was also something of a [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstruction]]: He actually had to go along with his and other people's puns, intentional ones or otherwise, and this was occasionally used against him. In one instance, [[VillainTeamUp a group of former villains]] tricked him into saying "I'm coming apart at the seams", whereupon he literally [[VoluntaryShapeshifter broke into pieces]] [[VisualPun and fell apart]]. He was also notable in being one of the few examples to literally ''weaponize'' this trope: One of the few times he defeated a {{Sandworm}} was when he unleashed a giant vaporous bull from his armpit... after which he chuckled, [[BreakingTheFourthWall glanced at the audience]], and casually commented: "Heh. Pit Bull."
* Riddler in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' was a one of these with his various {{death trap}}s having IncrediblyLamePun names. The result was so bad that '''[[TheStoic Batman]]''' had this to say:
-->'''Batman''': I don't know whats worse, the ''traps'' or the ''puns''!
* From ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' episode The Big Superhero Wish:
-->'''Milkman:''' PREPARE FOR YOUR... I can't believe I'm gonna say this... UDDER DEFEAT!! [[VisualPun (holds up a cow)]] HA!! I SAID IT!! HAHAHAHA!!
** In the episode where Crocker is combined with cheese, he comes up with a lot of cheese-related puns, such as "I will mozzarelish this moment forever!"
* WesternAnimation/DangerMouse got in a number of these. An example from "One Of Our Stately Homes Is Missing," where DM, Penfold and DM's friend Major Melvin seek to retrieve the Duke of Bedbug mansion:
-->'''DM:''' But how are we going to get it off the ground?
-->'''Melvin:''' That's easy. [=BLEEPs=] (''Building Location and Emergency Extradition Platoon'') brought two engines. Dig tunnel under building, strap 'em on.
-->'''Penfold:''' But how will you know where to fit them?
-->'''Melvin:''' That's easy. Thing's going to fly, so east and west wings.
-->'''Penfold:''' (''to us'') I knew I shouldn't have asked.
** The narrator was prone to this at the end of a number of episodes.
-->'''Isombard:''' If Danger Mouse had found a yellow-and-black-striped insect in (''Merlin's ink well''), would it have been the "Well of the Wasp?" And if Penfold had dropped a sweetie in it and made it disappear, would it have been the "Lost Well and Tasty Mint?"
* Sid Sycamore on ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales''. His schtick is very specific-- all of his puns use terms related to trees-- i.e. "leaf / leave," "bark," etc.
* The end of ''ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Reeking Havoc," where the Professor foregoes his chili making to enter a smelly cheese contest:
-->'''Narrator:''' Cheese, Professor. You'd ''cheddar'' quit if you know what's ''gouda'' for you!
* WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures served up a maximum groaner in the episode where Buster and Babs constructed a HumongousMecha out of a dinosaur skeleton. When Babs asked how it was powered, Buster deadpanned "Fossil fuels."
* In the ''Literature/RainbowMagic'' movie Amber was this, to the annoyance of other fairies.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Skippers on the [[DisneyThemeParks World Famous Jungle Cruise]] revel in this trope.
* Flight attendants, most notably those working for Southwest Airlines.
* Tour Guides.
* Neil Cavuto of Fox News [[http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/your-world-cavuto/2012/01/19/cavuto-picture-never-goes-away LOVES]] puns.
* The Spanish news anchor Matías Prats loves puns way too much. He has been seen more than once (at least OncePerEpisode) making puns out of extremely unfunny news, such as a woman electrocuting her husband (stay tuned for more shocking news) or a member of the Spanish Royal Family [[TooDumbToLive accidentally shooting himself]] (you could say that [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic his hopes to be king one day backfired]]).
* Barbara Dunkelman of Creator/RoosterTeeth [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_UmTeepGLw can make a pun for everything.]]
* Creator/GeorgeTakei on his Facebook page.
* Brett Dalton from ''Series/AgentsOfShield'' is this whenever he live-tweets an episode.
* Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream; ''lots'' of their flavor names are puns, including [[TheGratefulDead Cherry Garcia]], [[{{Phish}} Phish Food]], [[NapoleonDynamite Neapolitan Dynamite]] and [[BarackObama Yes Pecan]]. Most recently, they came out with their Core Flavors, including Hazed and Confused and That's My Jam.
