* In ''VideoGame/{{Injustice 2}}'', if Harley Quinn and Mr. Freeze fight, one of the pre-match introductions has Harley ask Freeze if he'll make her a pony. He replies that he'll make one that will "make the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic twilight sparkle]]". Harley laughs and replies that she knew he'd say that.

* ''VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans''
** It shouldn't be coincidental that Creator/RichardStevenHorvitz plays the role of Orthopox, an [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim ornery alien scientist who is in charge of a mission to attack Earth]]. Perhaps to drive the reference home further, concept art shows Crypto's backpack was originally to have four spider-like mechanical legs folded away inside.
** In the Japanese version of the game, the Major of Rockwell is voiced by Creator/AtsukoTanaka. [[Franchise/GhostInTheShell Take a good guess why]].

* Creator/IndiraVarma plays Vivienne in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition,'' and in a conversation with another character he will describe breaking from the will of the BigBad as, "Unbowed, unbent, unbroken." [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Sound like anything we know?]]
** One early game quest will have her suggest a fake rescue intended to break her. [[Series/GameOfThrones As in this?]]
** Varma is not the only GoT actor in the game, nor the only one to get a reference. Ramon Tikaram had a short role and as Dorian might snark that your character strip naked and allow the Chantry to flog her into repentance. Fans of the show might recall a similar scene.
