* ''MegaTen'' tosses in a few of these. Possibly the most famous are a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of Michael Jackson and {{Lawyer Friendly Cameo}}s of Audrey Jr. and Betelgeuse in ''Shin Megami Tensei II'', but they take demons and other things from such diverse sources that they're hardly the only ones. Among others, the inhabitants of the Velvet Room in the ''Persona'' series have theme naming from ''Frankenstein'' that goes far deeper than the cursory knowledge one would expect, and ''Persona'''s Philemon is derived from a Jungian figure that's obscure in cultures you ''would'' expect to be familiar with his work.
