* Being a site with multiple writers, it's not surprising that there are in-joke references in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' at times. One has to do with the [[BearsAreBadNews "Inactivity Bear"]], which handlers often joke kills and eats inactive characters. When [[spoiler: Megan Nelson]] went inactive, her death is that she woke up a bear in a cave, which...well, killed and ate her, much to the amusement of the handlers.

*** And then, 12 years into the game's lifespan (not too long before it was shut down), [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtpFPON_Bb8 this happened]].

** A long-running joke was that the curved yellow projectiles Soraka the Starchild launches from her staff are actually [[FundamentallyFunnyFruit bananas]]. An update to the game eventually gave Soraka a new /joke line "Yes, that ''was'' a banana. No-one expects the banana." Taken further with the "Order of the Banana" skin released for April Fools' Day 2015.

** The term "Space Rat" has led to fans depicting Tekkadan members from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' as literal rats, it ends up officially adapted by Megahouse and spawns the ''[[http://www.megahobby.jp/event/orphanchu_sp/ Orphanchu]]'' spin-off series.

* ''Batman'' #666 featured a possible future wherein Damian Wayne (Bryce Wayne's biological son and later Robin V) is Batman, and has a cat he calls Alfred. Fandom took this and ran with it, and Damian became a Crazy Cat Kid in the fandom. Grant Morrison, writer of the issue, took this and expanded it to have Damian be an animal lover in general, with Damian later adopting a Bat-Cow and becoming a vegetarian. Peter J. Tomasi furthered this, with Damian getting Titus, an updated interpretation of Ace the Bat-Hound. Tomasi's frequent collaborator Patrick Gleason also gave him a colossal mutant bat called Goliath. Tomasi's ''ComicBook/SupermanRebirth'' run also had Damian lose his shit at Jonathan Kent's accidental murder of a cat, and when they talk later, Damian is basically covered in his pets.

* Comedy clip show ''TheSoup'' would often describe ''Series/TheHills'' star Spencer Pratt as having a "creepy flesh-colored beard". The phrase would eventually make it into an episode.

** ''Minecraft'' has its own UrbanLegendOfZelda in the form of Herobrine, a mysterious and elusive entity responsible for obviously-man-made block placements and deformities appearing in single-player worlds, notable for its glowing eyes and its increasingly hostile responses to being seen. In addition to [[TeasingCreator Notch]] occasionally writing "Removed Herobrine" in patch notes, the 1.8 Adventure Update introduces [[TheSlenderManMythos Endermen]], glow-eyed monsters that randomly move blocks around the landscape (creating unnatural formations) and, on being seen, will stop and stare at the player, running (and teleporting) in to attack once eye contact is broken.

* In {{Literature/Worm}}, a RunningGag in the comment section is how everyone's reaction to [[TheWormThatWalks Skitter]] basically amounts to [[UnderestimatingBadassery "Meh, I can take her."]]. Then, in [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/08/03/sting-26-6/ Sting 26.6]], [[spoiler: Jack Slash]] actually says that. It ends as well as you expect.

* ''VideoGame/SurgeonSimulator2013'' has a number of nods to popular LetsPlays in the Steam Edition's achievements. Amongst them are "Shh I Doctor Now.", which is based off a picture of the doctor putting a finger where the patient's mouth is, "Like A Wild Animal", based off the popular "Rage Quit" segment with RoosterTeeth where Gavin slaps all the items off and Michael calls him that, and "Like A Wet Paper Towel", another RT nod, where Gavin, in his excitement, ''flings'' the replacement heart away and Michael snaps at him in disbelief.

* With ''Videogame/RockBand'' having such a massive backlog of available music to play, some gamers are noticing a trend in Rock Band's tracklist, namely that Harmonix seems insistent on adding as much music from bands that Dave Grohl has been involved with (Music/FooFighters, Music/{{Nirvana}}, Music/ThemCrookedVultures, Music/TenaciousD et al.) as possible, giving the game the nickname ''Dave Grohl Band''. ''RockBand 3'' acknowledged this by having the achievement "Dave Grohl Band", for playing any five songs from bands featuring Dave Grohl.
