* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': The third game in particular uses a ''lot'' of references to the first two for punchlines.

** In ''2'', Joker makes a crack about Garrus, who turned VigilanteMan between games, having "taken the stick out of his ass and started beating people with it." Come ''3'', you can run into him and Garrus trading jokes about each other's respective species, and that wisecrack is now the punchline to "How do you know a turian is out of ammo?"
--->'''Garrus:''' Come on, that one's as old as Shanxi.

** In ''Warlords of Draenor'', soon after passing through the Dark Portal, you encounter Kargath Bladefist, who traps you and your party in an arena and tasks you with killing one hundred of his minions. But you only kill 99 of them before Khadgar leads your party out into the next area. (Khadgar's response: "Then I guess we owe you one.") Ten levels later, in Highmaul, you enter another arena, and Kargath Bladefist is back (and he is angry that you cheated him out of a fight). Then when you defeat him, his last words are "One... hundred."

* In ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIWingsOfLiberty'', there's a news segment where the reporter informs people that Zerglings have a lemon juice allergy. Given the tone and the guy reporting it, it comes across as just another propaganda piece. Cue ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm'' where Abathur makes an offhand comment about needing to fix the Zergling lemon juice allergy.

** One of the things mentioned by the Announcer is the fact that "All Aperture Science Personality Constructs will remain functional in apocalyptic, low-power environments of as few as 1.1 volts." This becomes important when [[spoiler:GLaDOS is transferred to a potato battery, which is determined to generate only 1.1 volts of electricity.]]

* In ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'', after meeting Cole, Marcus mentions that Dom still owes him 20 bucks from betting on a thrashball game that Cole played in. In ''Gears of War 3'', one of the very first collectibles is a $20 bill with an attached note from Dom apologizing for it being so late. Of course, without any kind of government left in the world, the money is worthless.

* The Winstrate family in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' can be fought around the same time as the third gym. After you beat them all--the dad, mom, girl, and grandma, [[AlphabeticalThemeNaming who all have names starting with V]]--they all brag about their fifth family member, a boy, who is supposedly far stronger than any of them, though they don't tell you his name. Much later, on the final route before the [[FinalBoss Pokemon League]], you meet a male trainer named Vito who says he trained with his whole family. After you become the first trainer to ever beat him, he loses his over-confidence and doesn't even want to challenge the League anymore.

** In Heahea City's ferry terminal in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', you can find a kid who does online link battles under the name Electriwin. In Malie City, an entire island later, another kid laments always losing to someone by that name.

** Early on in Marie's Social Link she asks you what "steak" is short for, allowing the player to answer in one of three ways, including "steak-out" and "steaaaaaaaak". Several Social Link ranks later, she brings it up once again, probably after you long since forgot what you told her making the occasion funnier, especially since the scene is fully voiced.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'', at one point, Bayonetta and Enzo take a small plane to the sacred mountain of Fimbulventr. When they get close enough, Bayonetta bids him farewell and jumps out, at which point it is revealed that Bayonetta was controlling the plane with her magic, causing Enzo to panic because he has no idea how to fly or land the plane. In the epilogue, Bayonetta suddenly realizes she completely forgot about Enzo, then the plane flies into the area, under attack from evil angels and with Enzo desperately trying to keep it under control.

* In ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'' Buck tells [[DeadpanSnarker Romeo]] to shut up as a standing order after being irritated by his constant quipping in the opening cutscene. Romeo then invokes this trope in the second mission:
-->'''Buck:''' What the heck was that? You ever seen one before?\\
(after Romeo remains silent) '''Buck:''' Hey, Romeo! You got your ears on?\\
(Romeo shrugs)\\
'''Buck:''' Oh, I get it. Permission to speak, smart ass.
