* The ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episode "The Super Batman of Planet X!" featured a robotic butler named Alpha-Red, a play on Batman's BattleButler Alfred. This is a nod to an {{Animesque}} Batman show that BruceTimm had pitched after ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', which would have featured an A.I. Butler named Alpha-Red.

* Early versions of the TC_Inferno map for ''[[Videogame/MechWarrior MechWarrior Living Legends]]'' had an odd runway for the {{Space Plane}}s, where the vehicle factory was off to the side of the runway, with a concrete wall on the other side, requiring players to taxi onto the runway then turn before taking off. Most of the [[BetaTest Alpha Testers]] would simply mash the afterburner key the instant they got into the plane and then plow into the concrete wall at 400kph. The level designer then replaced the hint screens in the spawnroom with his own hints, saying things like "DO NOT TAXI INTO RUNWAY" or "DO NOT FLY INTO LAVA", depicting planes plowing into the wall or landing in lava, though the screens sadly didn't make it into the final release and were instead highlighted in a HilariousOuttakes thread.

* Lionsgate's upcoming ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' reboot movie has attracted a bit of controversy for two {{Race Lift}}s among the main cast; Billy Cranston (the Blue Ranger) is going to be played by the African-American RJ Cyler, while Trini Kwan (the Yellow Ranger) is going to be played by the Hispanic Becky Gomez. If you know your ''Power Rangers'' history, though, you might recognize both of those casting choices as subtle nods to the originally planned version of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. According to WordOfGod, the African-American Walter Jones (Zack Taylor) was originally going to play the Blue Ranger instead of the Black Ranger, and the Yellow Ranger [[TheOtherMarty was played by Hispanic actress Audri Dubois in the unaired pilot]] before the Vietnamese-American Thuy Trang (Trini) was brought in to replace her.

*** The "SAF" motif on the boats of the Imperials is an injoke reference to the placeholder name "[[OneMarioLimit General Safay Roth]]", an early version of the character who became Ardyn. Supposedly the logo is 'to honour the great generals of the past'.

** Time-traveling was a concept first conceived for ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' but wasn't added into a game until ''VideoGame/SonicCD''. The unused Rock Zone was the 'past version' of the more well-known Dust Hill Zone.

** Birdie has a quote explaining that he was pale "before" because he was sick; this refers to the fact that the character was Caucasian in the original ''VideoGame/StreetFighterI'' and was {{Race Lift}}ed into being black in ''Alpha'' and onwards.

* In ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', there are several pictures around the Heinous Manor of [[{{Satan}} Lucius]] in his concept art's outfit as opposed to his ordinary one. In another episode, Jimmy wears a bowtie, which was part of [[BowtiesAreCool his concept suit]].

** One of the earliest ideas Creator/MattGroening had for ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' was to have Homer moonlighting as Krusty the Clown (notice that the two characters have near-identical proportions and similar designs), the irony being that, while Bart was dismissive of his father, he idolized Krusty, unaware that he ''was'' his father. The episode "Homie the Clown", which has Homer becoming a Krusty doppelgänger, is this concept coming full circle.
