Double Entendre / Video Games

Go To

  • 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.
    • Advertisement:
    • Kyrie's "She yearns for your touch!" line to Nero in Devil May Cry 4, considering how sweet and chaste she comes off.
    • Devil May Cry 5 has the Sweet Surrender devil breaker for Nero. The end of the description is likely less making an Un-Entendre out of it and more referencing the Hitachi Magic Wand vibrator that was intended for massage use before becoming particularly known as a sex toy. Not to mention its in-game use (which heals Nero) is animated via the devil breaker's hand going forward and back repeatedly.
    A Devil Breaker created by Nico to relieve Kyrie's tension. Nero is too rough to do the job without hurting Kyrie, so this device is made of soft materials. Its vibration feature is especially effective at alleviating shoulder and hip pain.
  • 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.
    • Advertisement:
    • 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...
    • Another from the same case. They are on the surface talking about how April May can prove her tapping of the victim's phone has nothing to do with the murder.
      Phoenix: (Ha! I'd like to see her pull that off!)
      April: Mr. Lawyer! I saw that evil, evil grin! You were thinking, "I'd like to see her pull that off," weren't you?
      Phoenix: (Damn! She's good!)
      April: Well you're not the first man to think that... and I can and will!
    • And then another one much like that in the very next case with Phoenix referring to De Vasquez:
      Phoenix: I'll catch her with her pants down... So to speak.
    • "Mr. Wellington loves large bananas" in the 2nd game.
    • In case 3-5 we have Franziska whipping Larry into unconsciousness yelling "I demand satisfaction!"
    • 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: Melody of Elemia.
    • EVERYTHING dealing with a Reyvateil is a double entendre.
  • Mass Effect:
    • Pursuing Mass Effect'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.
    • In the mission to locate "Archangel" aka Garrus, if you're female, a Batarian eyes you and says you're in the wrong place. You can then counter with a Renegade Interrupt:
    Female Shepard: Show me yours, tough guy. I bet mine's bigger. (She's showing a gun at the time, but the way female Shepard says it gives that added layer of retort via the trope)
    "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.
    Shepard: Let me know if it's too quiet for you to sleep. Maybe I can find you someplace louder...
    • Also, if you manage to let Wrex live in the first game, and decide to cure the genophage in the first act of the thirdnote , you will get this conversation from him in the Citadel DLC:
    Shepard: Considering everything we've been through, I can think of worse positions to be in.
    Wrex: Trust me, Shepard. I've been in every position in the past few days...
  • Samurai Shodown gives us Shiki whose dialogue, as well as much of her design aspect, is heavily based around these.
  • In Super Paper Mario, tattle a Hammer/Boomerang/Fire Bro and then try to explain that the localization team wasn't thinking something dirty.
  • 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!"
    • From Final Fantasy V from a drunken wizard: "Knights do it two-handed!"
  • 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.
  • 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 the feel of 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, to 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... "enhancement".
    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!?
    • Dear God, Nu-13! She has the greatest amount of sexual innuendo in the whole series, bar none. Just to quote a few:
    "Those are one and the same. You know it hurt so much last time…! When you lashed out at me, I thought I was a goner!"
    "Let's kill each other again... She (Celica) can watch, if you want... or we can make it a threesome! She'll have to go first though!"
    "Don't wanna talk, hm? Perhaps you'll open up after something a bit more… physical?"
  • 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: Among Thieves 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, two of the latest games name were almost "Clock Blockers" and "4Play", respectfully.
    • Actually, only about half the Ratchet & Clank titles have done this- Going Commando, Up Your Arsenal, Size Matters, Quest for Booty and Full Frontal Assault.
  • 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.
  • 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.
    • And in the same room in Duke Nukem 3D, Duke can try to use an arcade machine for Duke Nukem 2:
  • 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 Louise, 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.
  • Pokémon Sun and Moon, meanwhile, give us the hiker who wants to point out “the largeness of his area”.
  • 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 a 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.
  • The Elder Scrolls:
    • Morrowind introduces the (in)famous in-game book The Lusty Argonian Maid. It is a lightly pornographic play full of double entendres, such as the eponymous Argonian maid being asked to "polish the spear" of the human male main character. You can meet the book's author, the polite though depraved bisexual Hlaalu Councilor (whose dialogue is written in a very Camp Gay fashion) Crassius Curio. Unsurprisingly, his dialogue contains a number of double entendres as well.
    • Skyrim:
      • Skyrim introduces a sequel to The Lusty Argonian Maid, as well as a Gender Flipped version for the ladies - The Sultry Argonian Bard. Bard is written by a different author (with the same name as the female character).
      • A random bit of dialogue can be overheard 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.
  • 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 dialogue 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?"
  • Shin Megami Tensei brings us Mara, a Gag Penis demon who loves these.
    Mara: (in Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon) It will take only one thrust to penetrate your frail form and finish you off immediately!
    Mara: (in Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey) Through my charms, your kind will reach their climax and...die!
    Terminal Guardian: (in Shin Megami Tensei IV, as he summons Mara) Even you won't be able to beat off this magnificent schlong. Hehe, get it? Beat off?
  • Kurugaya of Little Busters! gets up to this a lot. One of the best examples comes when she's cleaning Riki's ears, and when he mentions that it feels good, she can't help commenting about how he likes it 'jammed in his hole'. Riki just asks if she really has to phrase it that way.
  • Boy, howdy - Mad Moxxi from the Borderlands franchise. And by extension in Borderlands 2, Innuendobot 5000.
    • Can't really fault her, though. According to a transmission during Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, this is a coping mechanism for some horrible things that happened to her and her kids while with the Hodunk clan.
    • The lyrics of the Mainframe song used for the "You Can Stop the Music" mission in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!'s DLC Claptastic Voyage are basically coming onto a mainframe as if it's a phallus.
  • Guilty Gear has I-No, who is the queen of this trope and is essentially the series's Nu-13. note  Her dialogue is very sexually charged and filled with all manner of innuendo that would make Nu look modest in comparison. The fact that she's hinted to be a Depraved Bisexual does not help.
    "Do you see what I mean? I'm better on top. After all, you're too heavy."
    "I can't stand all these balls."
    "I like it wild, but don't go before me!"
    "I could have so much fun with a toy like you. You'll raise me to new heights"
    "I feel ecstatic when a gorgeous man goes down on his knees."
    "It's like I'm taking on three people at once... It really turns me on."
    • Even the names of some of her special attacks are blatant entendres such as Sultry Performance and the frighteningly unsubtle Stroke the Big Tree.
  • The Saints Row franchise enjoys it's fair share of them. But an unusual example appears in the fourth game. Kinzie, as an Animated Actor, is talking about one of the game's DLCs. It's called 'Enter the Dominatrix.'
    Kinzie [sighs] Yup, single entrende
  • Bad Day L.A. has some of these:
    • A man in a burger costume is being chased by some zombified dogs so he screams, "They want my pickle!" which Williams responds with "Don't talk about yo pickle to me!"
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition goes meta with this, turning the word "innuendo" itself into a double entendre. If you romance Sera, there's a scene where she says she'll "stomp your pinky later". When the (female) Player Character asks "Is that innuendo?" Sera cheerfully replies "No, it's up the front!"
  • League of Legends: Evelynn received a rework in late 2017, which made her drastically Hotter and Sexier from 'shadow assassin' to 'flesh-rending succubus'. A lot of her new dialogue revolves around this. To name but one example, her voice clips on buying the Void Staff item are 'Think of all the places this could go!' and 'It's... so... big...'
    • And Void Staff's main stat buff is additional magic penetration. Pass the Brain Bleach.
  • In Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, giving a character the "Sultry" voice option (#40) makes them sound less like they're adventuring and more like they're in a bedroom:
    (when leveling up a skill) "Sooooo GOOOOOD!"
    (when unlocking a new skill) "That's giving me chills!"
  • Used and lampshaded in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 when Nia obliviously decides to call Zeke a "one-eyed monster" as a retort to him calling her "fuzzy ears", which cues a startled Reaction Shot from Rex, Dromarch, and Mythra who are aware of the slang definition of the phrase. Rex calmly calls out her on it, but is too embarrassed to explain it himself, and gets a slap in the face from Mythra when he asks her to do it instead.
  • Leisure Suit Larry:
    • Just about anything Patti does in the games can be, and usually is, interpreted as such by the narrator:
    Narrator: You mount a big piece of wood (an experience not wholly unfamiliar to you).
  • In The Legend of Zelda game Hyrule Warriors, Cia makes taunting remarks towards Link, which seems like usual behavior for a villain. But, given the fact that she's a Stalker with a Crush who really WANTS Link...
    Cia: Link, stop wasting your time with petty brawls! Come show me what that sword can do...
  • In Spirit Hunter: NG, when Ban interrupts Rosé and Akira's talk, Rosé laments that she was about to give Akira an intensive private lesson. Given that, in the same sentence, she expresses her attraction to cute young men like him, it's not hard to see what she's implying.
  • The description for the Sunflower's Fire Flower variant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 1 & 2 reads "Rumor has it that a Sunflower once went on a date with a Fire Pea...". The implication here is, either that Sunflower and Fire Pea are the biological parents of the Fire Flower, or the Fire Pea accidentally set her on fire, turning her into the Fire Flower.
  • The original tag line of the Nintendo DS was “Touching is good.” Yeah.
  • Cyberpunk 2077:
    • In the original Polish version, if you call romanced Kerry before you pick an ending, you can ask him about the song he's working on, since he's a musician. He will say that he picked a working title, that being "Seamurai Goes Down", and it's about the events that happen in his questline. "Seamurai" is the name of the boat him and the player sink in his last quest, and also the place the two had sex. "Samurai" is also the name of the band Kerry used to play in in the past, so the title can be comfortably read as "Samurai goes down". In the English translation, the title was changed to "Seamurai In Smoke", sadly losing the dirty pun.
    • In one of the first missions with Kerry, he says that "As soon as I saw you, I thought "those are some balls on that one"". His and V's first meeting involved breaking into Kerry's house and he also says that if the player is female, but the fact that he's a gay romance option, his sultry tone and the way he checks out V makes the implications pretty clear.
  • In the Japanese version of Killer7, the Soul Shells are referred to as 魂弾 (tamatama), which does indeed mean "soul bullet" but is also pronounced similarly to a childish word for "testicles".


How well does it match the trope?
