* 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.]]

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheWorld: Radiant Mythology'' had a pre-order bonus disc called ''Lemon Gummi'' with several of the ''VideoGame/{{Tales|Series}}'' series heroes talking. At one point, they were asking for more spin-off ideas and a Dating Sim was suggested. [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Jade]] saw his role as that of the physics teacher and asked [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Luke]] to hand out some prints. Luke complained, saying he was the student council president and too high a position to do it. Jade voiced [[HotForTeacher Himuro Reiichi]] in ''TokimekiMemorial Girl's Side'' in 2002 and Luke voiced [[StudentCouncilPresident Hikami Itaru]] in ''Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 2nd Kiss'' in 2006.

* In ''[[VideoGame/TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial 2]]'', [[OtakuSurrogate Homura]] [[GamerChick Akai's]] favorite anime is a SuperRobot series named [[ThisIsADrill GoDriller]]. She wears a piece of merchandise from it - a [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann drill]] [[http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/181/tokimemo2homuragamerchi.jpg necklace]]. And this from a game that came out in [[OlderThanTheyThink 1999]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AlteredBeast'': The real form of the sorcerer Neff, the one who taunts the player at the end of every level, is a creepy pale bald man in a black tunic who looks similar to [[Franchise/HarryPotter Lord Voldemort]]. However, the game came out in 1988 and the first Harry Potter book was published about 10 years later, while the film series began in 2001.

* One of the Heavenly Rewards that can appear in ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'' is [[VideoGame/SimCity Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim]], described as the opportunity for a blessed soul to control a galaxy from the smallest microbe to the largest space races. The building is a hand holding a orb containing a spiral galaxy. Cue ''{{Spore}}''...

** In another example, when facing Mike Tyson in ''[[PunchOut Mike Tyson's Punch Out]]'', Little Mac needs to survive his power onslaught of uppercuts for a full minute and a half before he has a chance to beat him. Turns out this was TruthInTelevision. During the time of the game's release, Tyson seemed unbeatable. However, over time and after the upset lost to James "Buster" Douglas, it became clear to fight experts that Tyson was most dangerous during the first four rounds of a fight. If his opponent could survive until then, he had a chance to beat Tyson, as Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, and others would prove. Given that in-game time is faster than actual time in most games, that minute and a half in the game can easily equate to four rounds in real life. In short, one of the best boxing games ever made told people how to beat Mike Tyson before his upset loss and before boxing experts finally figured it out.

* One of ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004'''s announcer messages [[ShoutOut is]] "{{Flawless|Victory}} [[Franchise/MortalKombat Victory]]", which you obtain by winning a match without being fragged, giving up a flag capture, or what have you. It's pretty funny, since the two following games, ''VideoGame/UnrealChampionship2TheLiandriConflict'' and ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'', were published by Midway Games, and in the former, Raiden was featured as a GuestFighter.
* The plot of ''Videogame/GodzillaUnleashed'' revolves around an alien race coming to Earth and interfering with various [[{{Kaiju}} giant monsters]]. The San Francisco level has the Golden Gate Bridge destroyed. [[WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens Guess which later movie has a monster in San Francisco destroying the Golden Gate Bridge?]]

** 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.

** The ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' Season 1 sketch "Enter the Fat One" features Joey Fatone entering a martial arts tournament to avenge the deaths of his Music/{{NSYNC}} bandmates at the hands of the {{Yakuza}}. His battle with [[Franchise/GIJoe Storm Shadow]] has Fatone punch the Cobra ninja so hard in the face, the viewer sees Storm Shadow's skull fracture, his blood vessels burst, and his heart and intestines rupture before he completely falls apart. This was back in 2005, long before the 2011 reboot introduced X-Rays, attacks that show damage to the victim's bones and internal organs in a similar manner. It should also be noted that, during his ([[TrainingFromHell incredibly]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown brutal]]) TrainingMontage, Fatone is [[TheManyDeathsOfYou mercilessly mowed down]] by the likes of Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Smoke.



** In ''SF'' fandom, Sagat was occasionally referred to as '''[[WebVideo/TheTourettesGuy BOB]] [[JustForPun SAGAT]]''' ([[DontExplainTheJoke as in]] [[Series/FullHouse Bob Saget]]). Now, in ''[=SFxT=]'', you can play as Sagat alongside Bob from ''Tekken 6'', meaning that [[FanNickname Bob Sagat]] lives on.
* The voice sets for the [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Dwarven Warden]] and their respective voices for the [[Franchise/MassEffect Reapers]], many regard Sovereign as cold and calculating while Harbinger is a well of silly memes. Well PeterJessop voices the cocky dwarf voice set while Creator/KeithSzarabajka voices the smart dwarf voice set.
* From ''Webcomic/NerfNow'', [[http://www.nerfnow.com/comic/534 strip 534]], which was released about a day or two after the Uber Update. Now, have a look at one specific [[http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Stately_Steel_Toe item]] that Valve added into ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' on the first of July, about a week after the Uber Update.

* In ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'', characters communicate by using NintendoDS lookalikes that can send and receive mail. One generation of video game platforms later, the Nintendo3DS introduced the [=SwapNote=] feature...and then this became a FunnyAneurysmMoment instead when [=SwapNote=]'s online message exchange feature was wiped due to child safety concerns.

** In the localization for the NES version of the original ''VideoGame/MetalGearI'', the manual stated that Commander South is your MissionControl, and Colonel Vermon [=CaTaffy=] is the BigBad, while in the actual game, both the commander and the villain were intended to be the same character, Big Boss. [[spoiler:Then ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' came along with a RetCon -- it turns out that the Big Boss you've been playing through the game as was a body double, and he was the one who faced Snake at the end of the original game, while the real Big Boss only serves as Snake's MissionControl. So, in the end, the commander and the villain were technically different characters after all.]]
