Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Control}}'':
** The protagonist, Director Jesse Faden, despises being called Director or Faden, and prefers just to be referred to by her first name, Jesse. She repeatedly asks various high ranking staff members to do this, with mixed success. Eventually, towards the end of the game, she runs into Fred Langston, who runs the Panopticon. He asks her to call him Fred, but she calls him Langston instead.


* In ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', at the start of the second trial, the cast discusses "Twilight Syndrome," a [[ShowWithinAShow game within a game]] that includes characters based off of the students. Tsumiki's quite upset to find herself in the game with a character that greatly resembles her, calling it an invasion of privacy, but [[JerkAss Saionji]] mocks her for it, saying that "An ugly pig trash girl like you has no right to privacy in the first place!" By saying that, Saionji reminds Nanami of a girl in there who said the same thing to Tsumiki's character, and once Saionji's character is identified, she complains that the creator of the game is "taking way too much creative liberty!"

** [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Alola]] Island Kahuna Olivia tells Kukui that he's gonna scare off strangers with no shirt that goes with his lab coat...even though she doesn't wear much clothing herself.
-->'''Olivia:''' Still haven't managed to find a shirt that goes with your lab coat, hmm, Kukui? I've told you you're gonna scare off strangers looking like that...

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/WarioLand4'', [[NarCissist Wario]] looks ''extremely'' disgusted when [[spoiler: the princess that kisses him looks like a female version of him]] in the game's "second" worst ending. Without [[BadassMustache his mustache]], he would easily look just as ugly as she does.


* In ''VideoGame/Persona5'', the battle against Shadow Kaneshiro has him rolling out a HumongousMecha in the shape of a piggy bank. When called out for its design, he immediately refutes by stating it isn't a pig, but a personal defense robot called "'''Pig'''gyTron".



* On the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. Brawl'' website, Sakurai posted how he would not post shots of female characters' underpants. Then on the Japanese screenshots list, there's a picture of [[PantyShot Peach's dress falling over her head, her panties in clear view]]. (that was probably the localizer talking, but it's still funny)

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/SpiritHunterNG'', when Akira asks Officer Ooe to keep him updated on the Momoi Department fire, she responds that she's not allowed to divulge investigation details to civilians. He immediately calls her out on [[CowboyCop how many rules she's already broken]], and she cheerfully concedes the point.


* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'': Okita Souji is utterly shocked when she meets UsefulNotes/MiyamotoMusashi and discovers [[GenderFlip Musashi is a woman]], even though Okita is also a woman who was thought to be a man. Likewise, Musashi complains about the Ushiwakamaru (Minamoto no Yoshitsune) of this world because what should be handsome samurai are turned into cute girls despite the female Musashi coming from another universe into a universe where its Musashi is male.
* ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'': Pearl (who's the older of the two) yells at Marina for still going Trick-or-Treating at age eighteen, when just before she mentioned wanting to TP Sheldon's house

** In "Chaldea Heat Odyssey", Scathach asks the Backspear Boys (various incarnations of Cu Chulainn and Diarmuid) if they would like to stop fighting off boars and come over with the girls to have some beachtime fun. They tell her they'll be fine away from the action, especially since they're already wearing outfits that leave little to the imagination -- to a woman whose normal skintight clothes already leave little to the imagination as is.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', Lucio teases Reinhardt about his love for Creator/DavidHasselhoff's music. In ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'', however, Lucio has a voice line where he admits he actually likes the Hoff, not that he'll ever admit it to Reinhardt.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption2'':
** [[spoiler:After Jack Marston is kidnapped,]] [[PapaWolf a furious John]] is seething in anger and Dutch van der Linde tells him to calm down. Not even 10 seconds later...
--->'''"GET DOWN HERE NOW! YOU INBRED TRASH!"'''
** During Micah Bell's rampage in Strawberry, he breaks into an old friends house and kills him and calls him a fat sack of crap afterwards. Later in Guarma, we learn that Micah is actually fat himself too.
*** [[spoiler:If you went for the money with High Honor, Arthur will [[EyeScream slash one of Micah's eyes off]] and Micah will ''still'' call John Scarface, which John throws back at him.]]


* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' has a bit of EnemyChatter where a crook says the first thing he's going to do when he escapes Blackgate Prison is get a beer, explaining that he's in for DUI. Another prisoner admonishes him not to go driving while drunk or he could kill somebody; when asked why ''he''s in Blackgate, the second prisoner says, matter-of-factly, "Manslaughter".

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', you have [[ExpositionFairy a tutorial AI]], which, with some DLC, gains Ethic-specific voice options. This includes Spiritual empires, which despise AI research.
-->'''Spiritualist VIR:''' Thinking machines are an affront to nature. These profane constructs must never be allowed to... ohhh, wait...


** In the [=RPG=]s, Red, Blue, Yellow, Leaf Green and Fire Red, there are [[ConsoleCameo SNESs]] situated beside [=TV=]s in the Celadon Department Store. When you examine one of them the text reads "An RPG! There's no time for that!"

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/BlazblueCrossTagBattle'', Ragna is incredulous that [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Ruby and Yang]] are sisters (well, they are in fact ''half-''sisters) because they look so different. This is hilarious considering [[CainAndAbel his own relationship with]] Jin.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' features L'Arachel and Ephraim's support conversations. In one of them, she offers to heal his scars, so Ephraim takes off his shoulder armor so L'Arachel can get to work. She promptly freaks out at the sight of his bare skin, despite the fact that her own shoulders are constantly bare. Ephraim is [[LampshadeHanging left completely baffled]] when she runs off on him.
