** Blitzcrank, the Great Steam Golem, runs a dating agency in-universe known as Blitzcrank's Fleshing Compatibility Service. [[http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/page/find-your-match A simplified version is available on the game's website]] (it's a good thing it was simplified, because apparently the original version used a 748-entry questionnaire and full thermal body scanning. It was still deemed worth it in-universe to avoid hooking up with a psychotic necromancer, which in Valoran is a very real possibility).

* ''GhostbustersTheVideoGame'': Ever since the game came out in 2009, a few enterprising fans have figured out various ways of making their Proton Pack replicas actually do the things which the packs in the game do (pop a slime canister out of the top of the pack, eject the "fuel rods" when the pack shuts down, etc.). Granted, [[RealityEnsues the effects aren't as exaggerated as they are in the game]], but it's still quite impressive.

** The [[CaptainSpaceDefenderofEarth Buzz Lightyear]] action figure was highly sought-after and implied to be impossible to lay your hands on in the film. Then it became a real figure and was initially highly sought-after and impossible to lay your hands on. Then mass production took over. This event was ported back ''into'' the movie world: in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', Tour Guide {{Franchise/Barbie}} makes reference to it. Pull back to reveal an ''entire aisle'' of [[CaptainSpaceDefenderofEarth Buzz Lightyears]].
