** In contrast to the many examples of Teddy Roosevelt in fiction where he's deafeningly loud, this version has a historically accurate depiction based on existing audio of his speeches. Hearing his high, reedy voice coming out of such a big man can catch a first-time player unaware.

* Like ''Civ V'', the narrator for ''Civilization VI'' appears as a character in the intro scene. He is voiced by the very awesome Creator/SeanBean, who unfortunately [[ChronicallyKilledActor dies just before the intro ends]].

** In a similar vein, in ''Revolution'', moving into the space where a friendly village has a chance of finishing research on whatever technology you're working on discovering. ''Whatever'' technology. Even "Space Flight" or the nebulous "Future Technology". There's a lot more going on under those straw roofs than you might guess.
** On the opposite end of the spectrum, you might defeat a Barbarian Village and be rewarded with a "strange sea-going craft": The Galley. It's the weakest watercraft both offensively and defensively, it's tied with the Submarine for lowest Movement ability, and it's the only one that cannot venture into deep water. Kinda makes you wonder how he'd react to Cruisers and Battleships... which might very well be around when you get this reward.

* In ''Civilization VI,'' Poland's culture-bomb ability will destroy any incomplete wonder occupying a stolen tile. The name of the achievement for doing so? [[WhatTheHellPlayer You Are a Terrible Person]].

** Upon first meeting Frederick Barbarossa, he introduces himself by listing all of the lands he rules over - Germany, Italy, Burgundy... - before seemingly forgetting the rest and waving it off, saying, "and many, many more."

* Also in ''Civ III'', if you play on Elvis's birthday (January 8th) [[http://www.civfanatics.com/sotd/sotd63.jpg all the king units become Elvis]].
** After this Easter egg occurs, you can find a unit called Jaimo who is based off of one of the staff for ''Civ III''. He attacks by slapfighting and does disco dancing when he wins. [[http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=36690 Here is a thread about it]].

* In ''VI'' several tech descriptions (like for [[Film/TheLifeOfBrian Sanitation]]) are from Monthy Python. That's funny enough in itself. Now imagine Creator/SeanBean of all people reading the "What have the Romans ever done for us" quote.
