** In the ''Citadel'' DLC, Shepard can find a drunken Grunt sitting in their shower rambling off non-sequiturs, including "[[Anime/CowboyBebop Who's a space cowbow?]] [[Creator/SteveBlum Me!]]"

** The ''Tales'' series in general seems to love this trope. In the [=PS3=] version of ''Tales of Vesperia,'' Karol, who is voiced by Kumiko Watanabe, has a [[KeroroGunsou Keroro]] costume, and even talks like him after putting it on. Taking this further, Patty, who is voiced by Chiwa Saito, slips into her Natsumi Hinata voice after battle if they're both in the party--in one case, she calls Karol a "stupid frog", then wonders where that came from.

* A GameFAQs meme of responding to topics (mostly ones that question some of the design choices in the game) with "Sakurai:(Laughs)" (a response given in an interview to dodge a question) gained a spin off "[[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Dedede]]: (Laughs)" after the official ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' website mentioned Sakurai voices King Dedede in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]''.

* In the [=PC=] version of ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'', the character Rust has a line when answering pagers where he asks the [[FanNickname Pager Guy]] if he's seen the {{Film/Hellboy}} films, and state that they should make a third film. Rust is voiced by {{Creator/RonPerlman}}, who played the titular Hellboy in said films.

* Creator/MarkHamill was specifically chosen to play the mentor to the main characters of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', just as Obi Wan was...uh, [[TropeNamer The Obi Wan]] to his other character, [[StarWars Luke Skywalker]]. The student becomes the master...

* In the danger tools tutorial in ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'', [[Creator/StephenFry the Narator]] says that an unlethalised object is "Literature/MostlyHarmless", and remember [[Film/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy what else he narrated...]]
** In the bonus UsefulNotes/PlaystationNetwork tutorial, he says that he once made a rather fine TV series about America. He did, in fact, it's called ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Stephen Fry in America]]'' (this is more of a RealLife allusion, though).

* ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'' is based around this trope: out of the six main characters, three of them are former ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' alumni, and Bungie refused to let gamers forget it. The most notable is Gunnery Sergeant Eddie Buck, played by Creator/NathanFillion. Not only is his personality a carbon copy of Mal's, Buck's face was also [[InkSuitActor modelled after Fillion's]]. Creator/TriciaHelfer is also onboard as ONI Captain Veronica Dare--Buck's ex-girlfriend. Helfer is Fillion's ex-girlfriend in real life too. [[TropesAreNotBad It's still an excellent game.]]
** In fact, the Firefly cast had previously been in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' as unnamed infantry (at the end of one Halo 3 mission, a marine voiced by Fillon will say: "Looks like we got here in the nick of time! [[BigDamnHeroes What does that make us?]]). So it's kind of a loop-de-loop of references, but Bungie certainly took advantage and gave us all a reason to care about ODST in the fist place.
** There's also the Machinima/RedVsBlue actor cameos in the Crow's Nest level of Halo 3 (the "Password-Lacking Marine"). In all cases, they're more or less in character for Red vs. Blue.

* One [[FunnyAneurysmMoment unfortunate]] ActorAllusion is possible in the game ''All-Pro Football 2K8.'' It is possible to assign O.J. Simpson to a team called "The Assassins," where the game randomly has him do a throat-slash taunt and a large stadium robot make stabbing motions when he scores a touchdown. Oops.
