** One of the achievements of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' is "ThereCanBeOnlyOne." Christopher Lambert, who played Raiden in [[Film/MortalKombat the first movie]], also played Connor [=MacLeod=] in the ''Film/{{Highlander}}'' movie.

** ''VideoGame/MarioKart7'':
*** According to ''VideoGame/WiiSports Resort'', only electric cars are permitted on Wuhu Island. That's apparently not the case anymore, according to ''7'', which features two tracks on Wuhu Island (one loop around the island, and another that goes up the mountain). [[ExactWords Apparently the restriction doesn't apply to karts, just "cars"?]]
*** ''7'' features Rosalina's Ice World, an [[SlippySlideyIceWorld icy course]] hosted by a blonde "princess" in a blue dress. Two years after ''7'' was released, ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'' came out in theatres, and it was quick for some to point out the parallels between Elsa and Rosalina.

** Speaking of Puella, her stage theme could easily be a Battle Frontier facility theme in ''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}'' ([[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite the Battle Subway]] seems arguably suitable). Listen to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dZ5JlbhIms the bell notes]], and then listen to [[https://youtu.be/NiDUh-LHrDU?t=4s the original Battle Frontier theme]] from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Emerald]]'' and its subsequent remixes for the Battle [[https://youtu.be/UE7c-e78WSU?t=17s Factory]], [[https://youtu.be/Vt-H7vCQDy4?t=22s Arcade]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMKDvuhAjXA Hall]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fZU66ZYg8g Castle]] in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Platinum]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver HeartGold/SoulSilver]]''.

** ''Film/WreckItRalph'' bemoaning ''VideoGame/PacMan'' 's invitation to Felix's party seems prophetic of the yellow icon's inclusion in the latest ''Smash Bros.'' gifs with the heads of other popular characters that have, at the time of the aforementioned's reveal, yet to be confirmed to return themselves replacing Ralph's are growing popular.

* On April Fool's Day 2006, [=GameSpot=] made a fake news post called [[http://www.gamespot.com/news/6146958.html Revolution will take lead in 2010]]. The {{Wii}} went on to become the market leader of that generation (in sales, not in dominant third party support).

** "I think [Nintendo] finally [is] giving people what they want and continuing to give them things they never thought of." - Surprisingly, [[WiiU they're still doing exactly that]].

*** A trailer for a supposed WiiU VideoGameRemake of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' was revealed to be an April Fools' joke... but nine months later in January 2013, it was revealed that Nintendo actually ''was'' working on a Wii U remake of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker a different Zelda game]]. And then an ''actual'' ''Majora's Mask'' remake was announced for 2015. (but for 3DS, not Wii U)

* VideoGame/SuperFighter: This is a Taiwanese made VideoGame/StreetFighterII [[TheMockbuster knockoff]] that very blatantly lifted from Creator/{{Capcom}}'s Intellectual Property. However, some of the Super Fighter cast have some similarities to characters that would be introduced in later iterations and sequels of Street Fighter Games.

* A while after ''VideoGame/{{Catherine}}'' was announced, a fan drew [[AmbiguouslyGay Kanji]] (voiced by TroyBaker) and [[MsFanservice Rise]] (voiced by Creator/LauraBailey) from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' as [[UnluckyEverydude Vincent]] and [[{{Yandere}} Catherine]]. When the game was dubbed in English, [[RelationshipVoiceActor Baker and Bailey were indeed cast as Vincent and Catherine, respectively.]]
