** In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', Rosalina, whose Japanese name is Rosetta, travels to a comet and establishes an observatory there. In 2014, a spacecraft named [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosetta_(spacecraft) Rosetta]] did exactly that. No little space creatures calling it "Mama" though.

** ''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}}'' was released, and it was quick for some to point out the parallels between Elsa and Rosalina.

** According to ''VideoGame/WiiSports Resort'', only electric cars are permitted on Wuhu Island. That's apparently not the case anymore, according to ''7''. [[ExactWords Apparently the restriction doesn't apply to race karts, just "cars"?]]

* A meta example; when ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' (and ''VideoGame/Bloodborne'' to a lesser degree) was released, there was a backlash among fans for what was perceived as the series becoming easier and more "casual" compared to the original. It turns out that this was deliberate; in an pre-release interview for the third game, [[WordOfGod Miyazaki admitted]] that he thought the original ''Dark Souls'' and ''Demon Souls'' were too unfairly difficult, and he wanted to make the newer games somewhat more accessible while still providing a challenge.

* In ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 3'', the final Devil Arm that Dante receives ([[LightEmUp Beowulf]], a set of [[PowerFist gauntlets]] and [[ArmedLegs greaves]]) allows him to whip out a string of [[BareFistedMonk physical combos]] playing homage to several famous martial artists (both real and fictitious), with many of these moves being evocative of the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' crew; he even uses variants of the {{Shoryuken}} (Rising Dragon), Shin Shoryuken (Real Impact), and Shinkuu [[HurricaneKick Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku]] (Tornado). Dante's personality and sense of style (such as his preference for the color red) has had many fans likening him to a more CrazyAwesome version of Ken Masters. In ''3'', ''4'', and [[Anime/DevilMayCryTheAnimatedSeries the anime]], Dante is voiced by Creator/ReubenLangdon, the voice actor of Ken Masters in the dub of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''.
** In a similar instance, Ryu's English VA in ''SFIV'' is none other than Creator/KyleHebert, best known as [[Anime/DragonBallZ Adult Gohan]]. Can you say, "KamehameHadoken"?
** There's an oft-remembered, [[Funny/DevilMayCry hilariously]] [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment bizarre]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfdzyIrd89U scene]] in ''[=DMC4=]'' where Dante and Agnus go at it in full-on HamToHamCombat, quoting [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare the Bard himself]]. Years later, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWiS75oRxKI a developer's diary]] for ''[[VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry DmC]]'' had Lilith's VA describing the game's narrative and cast as "almost Shakespearean."

** The Tonberry is a recurring ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' enemy with a special attack, Karma (or Everyone's Grudge), that deals fixed damage proportional to the number of monsters a party member has killed. ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' takes this concept even further by having the game's BonusBoss appear only if you've killed every monster in the game. Said boss's special ability? Karmic Retribution. So if you ever encounter a Tonberry, [[DemonicSpiders you're gonna have a bad time.]] Also, the Tonberry's signature weapon is a knife, which also happens to be the ultimate weapon in ''Undertale''.
