* While ''LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}}'' is known for [[PungeonMaster intentionally making bad puns]], he's made quite a few by accident:

Kingfin, you are the king, man! [{{beat}}] Actually, that wasn't even an intentional...[laughs] I didn't even intend to make that pun!"
** During [[https://youtu.be/byRzHnJiszs episode 48]] of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', when he's [[spoiler:in the Water Dragon's belly]], Chugga remarks that while the scenery and 'trees' are beautiful, the fact that they're the insides of a water dragon is gross.
-->'''Chugga:''' You know, these trees look really pretty, but at the same time when you think about what these trees probably are, it's kind of gross. So they're like, they're pretty gross, is what I'm saying—''they're pretty gross'', wow. I didn't even intend that pun.
** In ''Majora's Mask'''s Snowhead Temple (the main dungeon for Link's Goron form), Chugga says: "So this dungeon is off to a pretty rockin' start - I'm just making bad puns without even realizing it now".
** While at the Oho Oasis in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'', Merri ends up stealing his "shocking" pun and calls her out for "stealing his thunder".
** Quite a few in the Lost Tower in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Pokémon Platinum]]'' making several "insensitive" puns without meaning to. When he encounters a young couple, he says that whoever decided to go on a date there is a "deadbeat". Later he says that he should be able to use an Escape Rope by tying it to a tombstone and rappelling out the window, and once he realizes how distasteful this is, he says he should cut away [[DiggingYourselfDeeper "before I dig myself a hole."]]
