Stealth Pun: Tabletop Games

  • Probably unintentional, but the bishop in a game of Chess moves diagonally, or to use another word, crosswise.
  • In Warhammer 40,000, the Chaos god of anger, rage, and bloodlust has demonic servants called Flesh Hounds. Or, in other words, Khorne dogs. And also "the dogs of war" from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
  • In Exalted, the Yozi Hegra, the Typhoon of Nightmares, produces hallucinogenic weather...or acid rain.
    • Malfeas, the Demon City, has a charm called Nightmare Fugue Vigilance, which means he doesn't have to sleep. That's right, Malfeas is The City That Never Sleeps.
  • In the Unhinged joke set of Magic: The Gathering, all creatures with the subtype "donkey" have fractional numbers for their power and toughness. Why? Because they're half-assed. Yes, this was confirmed as intentional.
  • The "Hoth Scout" card from Star Wars LCG is one of the few female Rebel characters so far and her Form Fitting Arctic Survival Gear accentuates an Impossible Hourglass Figure, making her a Hot Scout.
