** The ''[[{{VideoGame/Overwatch}} Overwatch]]'' Anniversary Event has ascended a bunch of fandom memes, including "Reinhardt, Reinhardt, REINHARDT!" (now available as a voiceline for Reinhardt), the Symmetra 'car wash' (referenced in one of her new voicelines) and the Reaper shrug (available as a spray, emote ''and'' victory pose).

** ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' has an unlockable "[[Videogame/Sonic3AndKnuckles & Knuckles]]"-mode, which gives you an AI-Knuckles, similar to Tails. The best part is, this works ''even when you're [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anr3dJPHgGc playing as Knuckles]]!''

*** A bit of subtle one occurs in the fifth episode of ''Spirit of Justice''. Armie Buff, via her "Sergeant Buff" drone, presents Apollo and Dhurke with a meal in commemoration of their newly founded bonds. The meal in question is a tray of what could be taken as either burgers or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorayaki dorayoki]]. It's designed in a way where it could realistically be seen as either despite leaning slightly towards the thinner dorayoki, complete with a side that's supposed to be a side for a dorayoki but is also designed in a way that makes it resembles the kind of designed drink cartons typically gotten with kid burger meals.[[labelnote:Note]]This is especially subtle, and fitting, as a plot twist later on actually reveals Sergeant Buff to be a child.[[/labelnote]] Although it's not exactly confirmed, it's a safe bet to say this was done on purpose by the developers, either as a way to aid the localization, poke fun at it, or probably both.
*** Another similar reference, as well as a subversion of sorts, actually occurs in the same case as well. The meal that Dhurke has prepared for Apollo is a plate of sushi, which the localization keeps as is, and it's also revealed that Apollo used to quite regularly eat sushi during his childhood. [[labelnote:Note]]A quote from Awkward Zombie comic that became a meme is Phoenix saying towards Apollo Justice, "eat your hamburgers Apollo", in reference to what is quite obviously a plate of sushi[[/labelnote]]

* {{DeviantART}} is infamous as a breeding ground for SonicTheHedgehog [=OCs=] of... variable quality. When it was announced that the upcoming game ''SonicForces'' allowed the player to design their own character, DA acknowledged it on their Twitter feed [[https://twitter.com/DeviantArt/status/864533573843337216 in the most self-aware way possible]].

** Lyra and Bon Bon also get special mention for that episode. The fandom's OTP constantly call themselves "best friends..." and have the maximum amount of LesYay you can give two characters short of having them make out onscreen. This both pleases ''and'' angers both shippers ''and'' non-shippers to a degree that's quite hilarious. Also, ''both'' names for her are now canon; Sweetie Drops is her real name but she goes by Bon Bon since she's [[spoiler:actually a secret agent.]] It was definitely a love letter to us all.

** Ever since [[PromotedFanboy Aaron Webber]] took over Sonic's social media accounts in 2014, he's been dedicated to ascending as many memes as possible, including Sanic, Sonichu, appending "[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles And Knuckles]]" to the end of things, and various memetic phrases such as "[[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Get a load of this!]]" When fans started coming up with new memes - such as a humorous-looking smear frame in the ''Sonic Mania'' intro - Webber started turning ''those'' [[https://www.facebook.com/Sonic/videos/10154538768167418/ into Ascended Memes as well]].

* In ''Film/WallStreetMoneyNeverSleeps'', Gordon Gekko says, "Someone reminded me I once said 'Greed is good.'" This line is pretty much the only thing many people remember from the original movie, including [[MisaimedFandom many people who actually became stockbrokers because of Gordon Gekko]], when in fact it's a bit of a simplification. Gordon himself has to clarify that his actual words were "Greed, ''for lack of a better word'', is good". He wasn't advocating unrestricted greed, but to use people's innate drive to increase their resources as a tool to advance humanity. Furthermore, his whole speech was part of an effort to take over another company so he could cannibalize it.

** TheAnimeOfTheGame also tweaks the earlier dialogue in Kanji's arc. Originally, Chie just referred Kanji as 'strange', but in the dub, Chie instead slipped out 'gay'. Kanji's surprise at this line ("Did you say 'gay'?") ends up very close to a line with line from the ''Webcomic/{{Hiimdaisy}}'' oft-quoted line: "You sayin' I like dudes!?"

*** A bit of subtle one occurs in the fifth episode of ''Spirit of Justice''. Armie Buff, via her "Sergeant Buff" drone, presents Apollo and Dhurke with a meal in commemoration of their newly founded bonds. The meal in question is a tray of what could be taken as either burgers or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorayaki dorayoki]]. It's designed in a way where it could realistically be seen as either despite leaning slightly towards the thinner dorayoki, complete with a side drink with a straw, making it resembles the kind gotten with burger meals. Although it's not exactly confirmed, it's a safe bet to say this was done on purpose by the developers, either as a way to aid the localization, poke fun at it, or probably both.
