* After ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' was shown at E3 in 2005, a letter in Magazine/NintendoPower Magazine issue 195, asked if [[spoiler: Midna was the game's titular Twilight Princess]]. Nintendo Power said in response that the developers aren't saying anything so that they wouldn't spoil anything for the audience. Later, after the game was finally released, [[spoiler: Midna turned out to actually be the Twilight Princess]]

* A joke about KerbalSpaceProgram is that rocket instabilities are caused by not enough struts. In June 28 2015, a SpaceX Falcon 9 disintegrated because of a failure of a strut. That being said, many landing in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvim4rsNHkQ SpaceX Failure Video]] are all too familiar to players who tried to do SpaceX builds themselves.

** With Creator/KarenStrassman voicing [[BadassPrincess Kitana]] and Creator/LaniMinella voicing [[TheHighQueen Sindel]] in ''9'', we essentially have [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Rouge the Bat]] playing both mother and daughter. Minella voiced Rouge in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'', and ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'', while Strassman [[TheOtherDarrin assumed the role]] starting in ''[[VideoGame/SonicColors Colors]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SonicRiders Free Riders]]''.

* 4 years before doing the "more cowbell" sketch for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', ChristopherWalken appeared in an FMV adventure game titled ''VideoGame/{{Ripper}}'', which featured the Music/BlueOysterCult song "Don't Fear The Reaper" as its theme music. The bit with the cowbell even plays just as Walken's name appears on the opening credits.

* In the baseball game, ''Slugfest: Reloaded'', Sammy Sosa (before the bleach job) was featured as the cover athlete on the box art. At the same time, they intentionally didn't include Barry Bonds in the roster lineup and instead replaced him with a generic batter, because he was suspected of using steroids. Not on long afterwards, it was revealed that Sosa and his rival Mark [=McGwire=] were using steroids to get their huge home run numbers every year. Meanwhile, Barry Bonds, who eventually broke Hank Aaron's home run record, was convicted of lying under oath but not for using steroids; even though most people still think he did.

** A running gag in the Neptunia series is about Noire, the Playstation character, being a loner and having no friends... years later, UsefulNotes/Playstation4 games refuse to support crossplay with other consoles and PC.

* One of the page quotes on this wiki describes a {{munchkin}} as one who, on being told that this is a game about politics and intrigue in [[TheRenaissance 17th century Italy]], asks to play a {{ninja}}. Then came ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII''. Of course, Assassin's Creed II actually takes place in the late 15th/early 16th century.
