** Several characters have special "secret" voice data players can purchase for them when the character reaches Level 100, and the character may shout a new line during their [[LimitBreak EX Burst]] once it is purchased. Several of them are references to memes from the original game.
-->'''Exdeath:''' TURTLE! \\
'''Tifa:''' Words aren't the only way to express your feelings. \\

* YouTuber swedemason made a StupidStatementDanceMix about ''Series/MasterChef'', particularly judge Gregg Wallace and his line, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfeyUGZt8nk I like the buttery biscuit base]]". The song duly went viral and even made the UK Top 40 charts. Later, when he appeared on TV magic show ''The Magicians'', Wallace took the opportunity during his illusion to enthusiastically quote the song, much to the joy of the audience.

* When a [[http://nuklearforums.com/showthread.php?p=941207#post941207 particular bit]] of InsaneTrollLogic took off like a rocket in the ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' forums, the author decided to honor it in-comic with [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2009/07/14/episode-1152-not-the-best-comeback/ the only character suited for the job.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' embraces this trope. Like its predecessor ''Webcomic/{{Problem Sleuth}}'', the author listens to his fans and goes out of his way to [[AscendedFanon support]] and/or [[{{Jossed}} mock]] the most popular fan theories.
** One of the more popular [=AUs=] is Fanfic/{{Trollcops}}, depicting Sollux and Terezi as, well, [[TheyFightCrime troll cops]]. When the [=AlterniaBound=] album came out, there were two tracks themed around the AU, both called [[http://homestuck.bandcamp.com/track/trollcops Trollcops]].
** In one panel, a faraway Karkat is drawn with less detail and no visible arms, making him look like he's wearing pants up to his neck. [[MemeticMutation Fans referred to him as Pantskat]] and began drawing fanart of him in his long pants. This made its way back into the comic: when [[spoiler:fedorafreak]] combines a shirt and pair of pants in the Alchemiter, he gets a pair of absurdly long pants. And at another point, Karkat self-deprecates spectacularly about wearing pants hiked up to his armpits as punishment. And then, when Karkat's ancestor is finally shown, he is indeed wearing pants hiked up to his armpits as punishment. Said pants become holy relics of his followers.
*** And the original Pantskat pixel of him has been inserted into at least two later flash animations.
*** And the Beforan version of Kankri wears a red sweater because Porrim got tired of looking at his "stupid hiked-up pants".
*** Which is itself a reference to the fan depiction of Karkat wearing a sweater or turtleneck in a lot of fan art.
** A fan animation on Website/YouTube that lip-synced [[TheStoner Gamzee]] up to the Double Rainbow song became enormously popular in the fandom and cemented Gamzee as the EnsembleDarkHorse amongst the trolls. So, later on, Gamzee mentions a 'double metaphor all the way, across Skaia :o)'.
** Early in the comic, there's a short scene of Gamzee and Tavros chatting to each other like close friends, using each others's emoticons and rapping together (although we don't actually see the rap). This acted as enough HoYay to make Gamzee/Tavros a popular ship in the fandom, and it picked up the [[IdiosyncraticShipNaming Idiosyncratic Ship Name]] "Peanut Butter and Jelly-shipping" or just "PBJ" (since Tavros is associated with the colour brown and Gamzee with purple). Later on, we see the second half of their conversation, in which [[AscendedFanon Gamzee is flirting obviously with Tavros]], and he affectionately calls Tavros the 'emotional peanut butter to [Gamzee's] royal jelly'.
*** This also served as Andrew's constant RunningGag of referencing gay pornography in most of his works.
*** The second EasterEgg joke flash called [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=pony2 [S] Ride]] has a ShoutOut to "[[IdiosyncraticShipNaming Cotton Candy]]," the fan nickname for Roxy/Jane which is based on their pink and light blue chat colors.
** Also, pretty much everything concerning fedorafreak's role in anything since his first brief mention.
** Several of the walkaround flash games had an EasterEgg called "Trickster Mode" that did assorted weird things. From this, fans came up with the idea of Trickster versions of the characters, usually depicted in pastels and bright colors, covered in candy, and generally SickeninglySweet. Then along came "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007611 [S] Jane: Engage]]," and now it's a [[UncannyValley rather terrifying]] SuperMode.
** A popular fan voice-actor popularized the word "nyeh" in association with Eridan, [[BeamMeUpScotty to the point where some fans think it's something he actually says in canon]]. When the dancestors, who partly exist to lampoon fandom's stereotypes/misconceptions of the characters, rolled along, of course Eridan's dancestor Cronus used the word.
*** The "Ministrife" update also canonized [[CrossDresser "March Eridan"]].
** The [[FanNickname silly nicknames]] "Homosuck" and "Hamsteak" were used by [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/ACT6ACT6.php?s=6&p=008144 Caliborn]] and [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=008227 Karkat]] respectively.
** [[http://media.tumblr.com/cfb8bb649ae5bc42c9089886261b96f2/tumblr_inline_mixc3ukA4i1qz4rgp.png This]] MindScrew of a fandom secret got a reference in the form of a recurring alternate Vriska referred to for clarity as (Vriska), in parentheses.
** A common joke line spread by fans was "Homestuck is my favorite anime." [[spoiler: ''The [[GrandFinale final animation]] is a fully-animated [[AnimationBump anime-style]] short film.'']]
* At the floor meeting in ''{{QUILTBAG}}'', Lisa makes a joke about her disembodied head walking on her pigtails, which had been seen in several ''PennyAndAggie'' fanarts.
* A typo in a discussion about ''Webcomic/BladeBunny'' and her phobia of tentacles ultimately led, via the normal MemeticMutation, to an official illustration of when [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2012/01/15/greeting-from-the-octobus/ Bunny meets the Octobus]].
* Hazel Green's MaximumFunChamber (and hence the trope of the same name) in Webcomics/CollegeRoomiesFromHell was initially named as a ShoutOut to a comment made by [[Webcomic/{{Nukees}} Darren Bleuel]] to Maritza Campos in the fan forums.

* One of the achievements in the 2016 Playstation4 and PlaystationVita version of ''VideoGame/SuperStarWars'' is, of course, "Han Shot First" which requires Han Solo to kill one of the many Greedo enemies in the Cantina level. Somehow. Bear in mind, you need to beat the Cantina to unlock Han in the first place so the only way this can be done is via cheating.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'', when an item is used in Barbatos' presence, he responds with a scream of "[[NoIndoorVoice NO! ITEMS!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis EVER!]]" Come his [[TheCameo cameo]] in ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Vesperia]]'', and his [[LimitBreak Mystic Arte]] is called "NO ITEMS EVER!"

to:

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'', ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'', Barbatos Goetia had a specific counter to every trick the player tried, most notably items. He'd immediately throw a spell at you whilst the usual arte tag at the top (which normally displayed an [[CallingYourAttacks arte's name]]) would simply display Barbatos shouting "Don't use items against me!" Since items would be commonly used against hard bosses, Barbatos would drain player's stock fast leading to the joke that he REALLY hated item users. Then when an item is used he appears as a BonusBoss in Barbatos' presence, he responds with a scream the remake of "[[NoIndoorVoice NO! ITEMS!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis EVER!]]" Come his [[TheCameo cameo]] in ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Vesperia]]'', the first ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' and his [[LimitBreak from that point onward, he ends up getting that reaction as a special Mystic Arte]] is called "NO ITEMS EVER!"Arte with its own animation (at the expense of his spells and specific reacting to everything else.)

** One of Pantheon's jokes is a ShoutOut to ''Film/ThreeHundred'' spoofing the "WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION" scene: ''"My profession!? [[RealMenWearPink You know, now that I think of it, I've always wanted to be a baker.]]"'' Fans went wild in this, creating a {{Fanon}} and meme that [[SupremeChef Pantheon is an off-time baker]] if he's not kicking ass in the name of the art of war. Eventually at 2016, Riot released a set of food-themed skins, and one of them being Baker Pantheon. Dream achieved.
