** ''VideoGame/LEGOStarWars: The Complete Saga'' features [[spoiler:Franchise/IndianaJones]] as an unlockable character. Harrison Ford appeared in both franchises. (It's also [[EarlyBirdCameo a promotion]] for [[spoiler:''VideoGame/LEGOIndianaJones'']], as he's only unlocked after watching the trailer for it in the HubLevel.)
** [[spoiler:''VideoGame/LEGOIndianaJones'']] has this in reverse, with [[spoiler:Han Solo]] unlockable.
** Also, the version of The Joker in ''VideoGame/LEGOBatman'' seems to be based on the version voiced by Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamill on WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries.

* In ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate 2]]'', clicking on Firkraag the dragon will result in him saying "oh, bother." The joke is that Firkraag is voiced by Creator/JimCummings, who also did ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh''.

** 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.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', [[HoYay best friends]] [[Franchise/MetalGear Snake and Otacon]] cheer 'Falcon PUNCH!' and 'Falcon KICK!' while fanboying mutually over [[VideoGame/FZero Captain Falcon]]. The joke is that Captain Falcon was voiced by Otacon's Japanese voice actor in the non-canon anime. Snake also comments that {{Sonic|TheHedgehog}} just gives him a bad feeling, which is a reference to Big Boss having the same Japanese VA as Eggman (in the English version it comes of as either a non-sequitor, a TakeThat to Sonic or a reference to hedgehogs eating snakes in real life).

* 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 ''SuperSmashBros'' website mentioned Sakurai voices King Dedede in ''[[SuperSmashBros Brawl]]''.

** In Scenario 15 of the America Route, [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Soushi]] will state "With movement like a pendulum, barrage of accurate strikes...That technique just now, almost like boxing!", a reference to [[HajimeNoIppo Ippo Makunouchi]]. Both characters are voiced Creator/KoheiKiyasu.
