Double Entendre: Video Games
  • Bulletstorm is to First Person Shooters what Bayonetta is to third person beat-em-ups. Observe:
    • One of the loading screen tips: "Reload often. No one likes getting down to business half-cocked."
    • 80-90% of the skillshot names. Including "Boned" for reducing a mook to a skeleton with a PMC charged shot to the groin, making that one a triple entendre.
    • The undisputed king of Double Entendres for Bulletstorm is the Penetrator, the most Freudian gun you will ever use. It fires rocket propelled drills.
  • Devil May Cry 4: "First, I whip it out!..."
    • And from Devil May Cry 3 before that, the Monster Clown calls the Temen-ni-Gru tower a "thick shaft that causes women to shudder".
      • Devil May Cry 3 also has what could be seen as a visual double entendre: in the cutscene before the Nevan battle, there's a part where Dante grabs the hem of his pants (which apparently confused people who'd played God of War) and then whips out Rebellion. Rebellion is a sword. Hmm...
    • Kyrie's "She yearns for your touch!" line to Nero in Devil May Cry 4, considering how sweet and chaste she comes off.
  • The Ace Attorney games feature their share of Double Entendres.
    • In case 3 of Justice for All, a heavy bust of defendant Maximillion Galactica is used as a piece of evidence, which leads to Phoenix using the phrase "Max Galactica's ample bust" in the courtroom.
    • This conversation between Phoenix and Maya in one case. They're talking about his Attorney's badge.
    Maya: You really love to show that thing off, don't you? Who knows how many times you've shown it to me?
    Phoenix: She's right. I whip it out at the drop of a hat.
    • "Mr. Wellington loves large bananas" in the 2nd game.
    • In the first game.
    April May: I like a man with a big... vocabulary.
    Phoenix Wright: I'll get to this woman's bottom! Er, you know what I mean...
    • And there was a lot of talk between Apollo and Ema about Ema's "tool"...
  • Ashe in Mega Man ZX Advent: "Now that your appetites are whet for booty..."
  • This scene from Ar tonelico.
    • EVERYTHING dealing with a Reyvateil is a double entendre.
  • Mass Effect:
    • Pursuing Mass Effect 1's Romance Sidequest with Kaidan Alenko creates what is probably an unintentional Double Entendre; asking Kaidan for "personal input" after all new conversational options have been exhausted causes Kaidan to reply that "There'll be time for personal debriefings later", a comment that sounds innocent at first but collects more and more of a double meaning the more he and Shepard flirt with one another.
    • If that's not enough, there's a very intentional Double Entendre possible in the scene which culminates the Romance Sidequest:
    Kaidan: If things don't go well, I want you to know - I've enjoyed serving under you.
    Shepard: Kaidan, I don't think I've had the pleasure of you serving under me yet.
    Gianna Parasini: I love nailing asari. They act so ageless and superior, but when you finally catch them, they squeal like schoolgirls.
    "You know me, I like to savor the last shot before popping the heat sink. ...Wait, that metaphor just went somewhere horrible."
    • No mention of Garrus is complete without the bit about Turian preparations for missions....
    "I had reach. She had flexibility."
    • Shepard and Liara from the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC also have a rather nice one if you romanced her back in the first game:
      Liara: It's been two years. I didn't want to put pressure on you.
      Shepard: I have fond memories of the last time you put pressure on me.
      • As well as this gem, if you're romancing Garrus after romancing Liara in the first game:
        Liara: Yes, you came back — and now Garrus is doing a lot more than just calibrating the Normandy's guns!
    • Mass Effect 3 gives us Shepard's remark to Tali on welcoming her back to the Normandy if the two were involved in the second game.
    "If it's too quiet for you to sleep, I can find you someplace louder..."
  • In Super Paper Mario, tattle a Hammer/Boomerang/Fire Bro and then try to explain that the localization team wasn't thinking something dirty.
  • Joshua's intentional "You watch my behind, and I'll watch yours" line in The World Ends with You.
    • There's also this exchange.
    Joshua: Step one is gathering info, starting with the client. Honestly, Neku. This is basic stuff.
    Neku: (Yoshiya Kiryu, private dick extraordinaire.)
  • When Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Endless Frontier was announced to have a US release, Atlus' promotional messages were FILLED with innuendos. The message goes like this:
    SUPER ROBOT TAISEN® OG SAGA: ENDLESS FRONTIER? SPILLS OUT ONTO NINTENDO DS? We like keeping you abreast of new developments in the world of Atlus, Faithful. That's why we're practically bursting at the seams to reveal Super Robot Taisen® OG Saga: Endless Frontier for Nintendo DS. As a continuation of the Atlus Spoils fan appreciation program, each and every launch copy of Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier will be a premium boxed release, with a bonus soundtrack CD featuring music from the game included in the final retail package. My friends, this is one stacked action RPG. Contrasting the deep story and characterizations is the fast-paced, fighter-style combat engine. Juggling your opponent in the air, chaining together combos, using your entire party in concert... these may not be your typical RPG combat concepts, but with the quick, responsive battles in Endless Frontier, they're the name of the game. Behind the fighter mechanics are all of the nuanced RPG fixings genre fans have come to expect. We'd like to emphasize: this game is more than just the fights. This is a fully-developed, well-rounded adventure. Journey across a variety of worlds, ranging from an apocalyptic wasteland covered with the hulks of downed spaceships, to a fantastical place of fairy tales and dark magic. Join Haken Browning: gunslinger, professional bounty hunter, and amateur ladies' man-along with his motley crew of robots, were-beasts, secret agents, and busty princesses-as they delve deep into the mysteries of how their worlds came to be and face a threat that imperils the multiverse. There's so much game here, Faithful, you may just get lower back pain from the effort! With its unique combat and titillating story, this is one sci-fi action RPG sure to stick out this spring.
    • The actual in-game dialogue has even more of them. Or, to be more precise — about 3/4 of dialogue is innuendo, to the point when Haken has to explain that when he said "She uses bombs" he meant explosives.
    • There's also Garnet. Everything she says in combat is a double-entendre of some sort.
  • This happens occasionally in Pokémon Vietnamese Crystal.
    • Pichu's Podedex entry: ?IT WILL DISCHARGE WHEN IS STIMULATED.
    • In one of Silver's rants: ONE DAY I WILL LET YOU KNOW I'M THE STRONGEST COACH, THE FELLOWS WILL CONSORT WITH ME. LISTEN, ONE DAY I WILL BEAT YOU DOWN, AND LET YOU KNOW MY STRENGTH.
  • Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed is one big double entendre. The plot involves Pox founding a hot dog stand named "Big Willy's", a parody of the real-life "Bob's Big Boy" franchise. Kolonel Kluckin, owner/proprietor of Kluckin's Kitchen, is trying to run Pox out of business, and hires a kidnapped and supposedly brainwashed rich heiress named "Patty Wurst". She attacks Pox's restaurant, to which Pox exclaims "She's hammering my Big Willy!" It goes on like this.
  • Metal Gear Solid has plenty of them; for instance Ocelot's "I love to reload during a battle. There's nothing like slamming a long silver bullet into a well-greased chamber." from the first Metal Gear Solid is a rather obvious one.
    • Just what else could Solid Snake mean? He spends the whole damn series around women that wear clothes that they can't do up properly. Oh, and he's an old man by the fourth game.
      • Well, now we know why Liquid was always so pissed off...
    • In MGS3, if you don't remove the transmitter from Snake's body before meeting EVA behind the waterfall, you will see a minute-long cutscene that consists almost entirely of this.
    EVA: I can't believe how small it is.
    Snake: Yeah, but it gets the job done.
  • Portal: "Speedy thing comes in, speedy thing goes out", anyone?
    • The Lunacy achievement is a non-sexual example: The method by with you earn it is both "insane" and "involving the moon".
  • Double Entendres practically exploded in the video game fandom once Nintendo's new console was named "Wii". Most of the jokes have stopped.
    • But now they are back in full force once Nintendo started to make Wiis and the controllers in the color black.
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 had one in the Soviet campaign, where General Krukov will berate you with an entendre.
    "While you were hiding behind the barricades in Leningrad, the enemy was thrusting deep into the motherland's tender nether regions!"
    "We will pound your little island, until you weep for mercy."
    • Also the Hammer tank. "Who needs a good pounding?"
  • Grand Theft Auto. Rockstar North is a master inserting double entendres into any fictional item under the sun, from cars, to chocolate bars, to names such as the "The Big Pecker", Juank Air, Burger Shot or ilovetoblow.org, to an advertising in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories promoting croquet. To list all of them would require a page of its own.
  • In World of Warcraft the Reputation grind for the Sons of Hodir faction requires you to complete the following quests every day; Blowing Hodir's Horn, Polishing the Helm and Thrusting Hodir's Spear.
  • The enemy in X3: Reunion is called the Kha'ak. And yes, it's pronounced like you think it is. Cue G4TV's hilarious review laden with hard and blown Kha'ak.
  • Baldur's Gate has quite a lot of them. Jan has a bunch of stories that are chock full (something about Golodon the Unmanned losing his rod?) Edwin occasionally interjects them into his dialogue and then there's the entire sidequest concerning the three pantaloons that give you the Big Metal Unit...
  • In BlazBlue, an experiment performed by Professor Kokonoe on Iron Tager ended with this exchange:
    Kokonoe: I've been thinking of putting it on your chest... or your GIGANTIC TAGER!!!!
    Tager: Uh, no thanks, Kokonoe. I don't think I need that kind of... um... "enhancment".
    Noel: Miss Kokonoe, what were you planning to do to Mr. Ragna the Bloodedge after you put him to sleep?
    Kokonoe: Ah, yes. Well, no reason not to tell you. First, I intended to take his INFERNO DIVIDER and put it in a CARNAGE SCISSORS with maybe a little GAUNTLET HADES too? Huh, my goodness, I can only imagine what his HELL'S FANG will DEAD SPIKE.
    Noel: Wh-wha- WHAT!?
  • Everything said by the Black Baron (stop staring) in MadWorld. Especially when he refers to giving targets "head" when you're hitting heads into targets with a golf club.
  • Uncharted 2 gives us this exchange.
    Sully: Should be this way. Just follow the hose.
    Nate: You always "follow the hose". Just like in Montreal.
    Sully: Never gonna let me forget that, are you?
  • The title of every single Ratchet & Clank game after the first. "Going Commando" referring to both nudity and actually being a commando, "Up Your Arsenal" referring to it having more weapons, and to top it off, the latest game's name was almost "Clock Blockers."
    • Actually, only about half the Ratchet & Clank titles have done this- Going Commando, Up Your Arsenal, Size Matters, and Quest for Booty.
  • In Gaia Online, there is a clothing store named "Ruby's Rack", run by a single mother in a skimpy dress.
    • Meanwhile, Sam has no idea what's so funny about a car shop named "Sam's Body & Parts".
    • And in the Promageddon event manga:
    Cindy Donovinh: It's... huge! I can't believe the size of it, towering into the stratosphere like that... It's like nothing I've ever seen!
    Edmund: *Aside Glance* That's What She Said
  • Left 4 Dead 2 has this from Ellis:
    "Do y'all know what 'suck the heads' means? I mean, it ain't nothin' bad. It's about eatin'."
  • The QUALITY voice acting in the Resident Evil series means that a fair number of lines that wouldn't usually sound like double entendre end up sounding exactly like that. A golden example from the end of the original version of the game that started it all:
    Barry: Do you have any idea what Wesker was going to show you in the back of this place?
    Jill: Well, he was talking about the world's most powerful biological weapon... called "TYRANT" or something.
  • Dissidia: Final Fantasy is filled to the brim with these, though some cross over to being text instead of subtext. A particularly obvious example is Kefka's EX-burst monologue:
    "Watch this! It's filling me up! That was... titillating!"
  • Duke Nukem's Balls of Steel quote. He says it in front of a pinball machine but it's clear he also means he has balls of steel.
  • Many lines from Star Fox 64 can be interpreted this way, especially if you take it out of context or apply unnecessary censorship.
    • Why don't you come down here, Falco?
    • Jeez Leweez, what is that?!
    • We can catch up later, Fox.
    • Incoming enemy from the rear! Drop altitude!
  • In Animal Crossing, some of the possible conversations between animals are:
    "Don't look! I've got a split in my pants!"
    "You aren't wearing pants... so what split?"
    "Um... gotta go!"
    "*town name*, we got trees! And people and houses and the birds and bees"! Now, we all know what "the birds and bees" mean...
  • Pokémon Black and White has a Dating Sim-esque sequence: After defeating your date in a Pokémon battle, you go with said date on a ferris wheel. Your date's dialogue is positively laced with double entendres, especially from one of Hilbert's dates, a burly Hiker.
  • The tutorial quest of Dungeons & Dragons Online has the rogue catch up to your party and say to your female cleric leader, "Don't worry, Cellimas, I'm here to watch your behind now!"
  • In Wing Commander III, every single conversation between Blair and potential Love Interest Rachel is chock full of these. Perhaps not coincidentally, Rachel is played by porn star Ginger Lynn, and porno dialogue is notorious for this trope.
  • Shameless otaku Daru from Steins;Gate has a talent for instantly noticing whenever something a female character says can be misconstrued out of context and asking them to repeat it for him. Prime examples include "Put the banana in", and "Maybe that hole is too tight!"
  • In Red Dead Redemption, practically everything the prostitutes say is Double Entendre. See here.
  • In Starcraft II, the SCV pilot sometimes exclaims, "In the rear, with the gear!"
    • Although in the military, that expression is routinely used to denote non-combat personnel who are removed from the front lines. Given the propensity of vulgar expressions and double entendres in the military lexicon, this example is usually played straight by comparison.
  • In The Elder Scrolls series from Morrowind onward there's an in-game book by the name of The Lusty Argonian Maid. You can read excerpts from this book, and they are full of double entendres (especially the second volume).
    • In Morrowind, you meet the author of The Lusty Argonian Maid, Crassius Curio. Unsuprisingly, his dialogue contains quite a few sexual entendres.
    • Skyrim introduced the aforementioned second volume of The Lusty Argonian Maid, and The Sultry Argonian Bard, a gender-flipped version written by someone else (with the same name as the female character).
    • Skyrim also has a random bit of dialogue you can observe between the Jarl of Riften's housecarl Unmid and steward Anuriel, in which Anuriel coyly asks Unmid if they'll be doing any more "combat training soon.
  • Morrigan's victory lines in the Capcom vs. series are practically intended to come off as this.
  • Possibly lampshaded in MapleStory. The Phantom class has has a skill with the same name as this trope.
  • Marvel Avengers Alliance has fun with this trope sometimes in the enemy attack and hero ability descriptions. For instance, Hercules' passive ability "Likes It Rough", where he gains stamina whenever he's attacked.
  • Kingdom of Loathing has its share of double entendres, especially when fighting sleaze-element monsters. There's even a zone where you fight constellations that are literal interpretations of euphemisms for genitalia (such as the Hooded Warrior and the Little Man in the Canoe), since the astronomers in the Times of Old had really dirty minds.
  • Take Haken, Morrigan and Vashyron, put them in one game and the result will be a lot of these.
  • The title character of the Gex series has many quotes from music and movies, but almost all of his own trademark quotes referring to his "tail" and his "tongue" are these.
  • Unintentional, but Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has the opening scene:
    Spider: Wakey wakey, motherfucker! Ops says there's a delay in the feed, they need to recalibrate your ass!
    Rex: Me?
    Spider: Well it ain't me 'cause I'm goddamn near perfect. Men want to be me...
    Rex: And you want to be with men. Yeah, I got it.
  • Minecraft: Punch trees, get wood.
  • Street Fighter has Juri Han who is the undisputed queen of this trope. Her dialouge is practically filled to the brim with all manner of sexual innuendos. It doesn't help that she's a Depraved Bisexual.
    "Now comes the fun part...You'll have to do better than that if you want to get me excited."
    "Keep staring at me like that and I may get a little more...frisky...ha ha ha..."
    "Oh man, that was great! Finally, someone who pushes all my buttons the right way..."
    "You're too big to be finished already! Shouldn't you have more stamina?"
