Added DiffLines:

* In the English version ''[[VideoGame/AyakashiRomanceReborn Ayakashi: Romance Reborn]]'', several of the {{Youkai}} characters are described by the Japanese and then the English word for the kind of Youkai they are.

* ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'' can have redundancy in your Mii's name. Every Mii needs a first name, last name, and a nickname, but the game will only ever address them by their given nickname. If you want your Mii's first or last name to be the spoken name, it has to be their nickname. By doing so, you can get this funny gem during their personality creation process where describe themselves:

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' has the Carbon Dog enemy, which transforms into the Diamond Dog after taking enough damage. If you cast Brainshock on it, the boss can start feeling strange, where it may bite itself and diamondize itself for instant death. Yes, a diamond dog can turn itself into diamond again. Funnily, defeating the boss this way won't remove its sprite from the battle screen after the "YOU WON!" message pops up.


* The 2011 reboot of ''VideoGame/YouDontKnowJack'' features a category titled "Cookie's Fortune Cookie Fortunes with Cookie 'Fortune Cookie' Masterson". Also, one of the sponsors in the Facebook version of the game is The Warehouse Supply Warehouse.

* Game ''titles'' can also fall into this from time to time. ''VideoGame/DivineDivinity'', ''VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight'', and ''VideoGame/LegendOfLegacy'' are notable offenders.

Added DiffLines:

* The baseball-themed ''Franchise/OnePiece'' game for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance is called ''"One Piece: Going Baseball - Pirates' Baseball"'' (the first instance of "baseball" is in GratuitousEnglish). Then you look in the game's logo and you see it [[LongTitle goes even further with]] ''"~Baseball of One Piece~"''.

Added DiffLines:

** VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon has:
--> Lighthouse point: a point that has a lighthouse.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'', Nidoran was split into male and female variants. At the time, they were the only Pokémon to be divided by sex. Sexes were introduced in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' and a Pokémon's sex would be shown on screen. However, both male and female Nidoran did not get their names changed. This creates a redundancy where you see Nidoran (male/female) followed by its sex next to its level. The game is basically showing its sex twice.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/LEGOMarvelsAvengers'', one line that Crimson Dynamo may utter during a takedown is "Beware my laser light pistol of light lasers!".

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TheDarksideDetective'', this is news anchor Dick Brickman's default mode of speech.
-->'''Dick Brickman:''' This is Twin Lakes FM featuring me, Dick Brickman, bringing you 'Dick Brickman Presents The Weather' with me, Dick Brickman.


** Late Game Boy Advance and Gamecube games had a "play from a safe distance and BlahBlahBlah" disclaimer. The DS and Wii show these disclaimers when you turn them on, so if you play one of said GBA[=/=]GCN games via retrocompatibility, you see the disclaimer ''twice''.
