* One of Chun-Li's win quotes in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: 3rd Strike'' is "Leave me alone! I'm a fighter, not a news reporter!" This is a reference to the live action ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie, in which Chun-Li's occupation was changed from Interpol agent to news reporter. Ironically, ''VideoGame/MegaMan9'' includes a reporter who looks suspiciously like her during the opening movie.

* The infamous ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie is a great source of in-jokes over at Creator/{{Capcom}}:
**
One of Chun-Li's the most controversial changes made in the film was that Chun-Li was a journalist instead of a cop and Interpol agent. Accordingly, one of her win quotes in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: 3rd Strike'' is "Leave me alone! I'm a fighter, not a news reporter!" This is a reference to the live action ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie, in which Chun-Li's occupation was changed from Interpol agent to news reporter. Ironically, reporter!"

** If [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Demitri]] uses Midnight Bliss on Chun-Li in ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos'', she'll transform into her movie counterpart, right down to the red qipao.

* In ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' Akihiko says that he wants to [[spoiler: quit the Shadow Ops and become a police officer - his profession in the no-longer-canon ''Anime/PersonaTrinitySoul''.]] In fact, in an interview with Zen United (the European publisher of the game), the designers were originally going to give him a look similar to his ''Trinity Soul'' appearance before settling for the look he's given in-game instead.

** Earlier still, ''Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance'', [[UpdatedRerelease the expanded version of the game]], introduced a set of bonus alternate universe missions known as the Snake Tales. Most of them are fairly serious in tone, but the fifth mission, "External Gazer", is a parody of the main ''Sons of Liberty'' campaign, particularly towards the climax. At the absolute apex of the plot, Solidus attempts to stop Snake by releasing "the seal" on a unit known as "Them": "Their presence alone has the ability to [[JumpingTheShark destroy a world]]", he warns. "They are [[CreatorBreakdown children of darkness]] on whom is focused the [[TheScrappy combined hate of the entire universe]]". "They", of course, are [[ReplacementScrappy Raiden]] and {{Ro|manticPlotTumor}}se. Snake then experiences an extended MindScrew sequence, leaving him in a bizarre dream world in which he is convinced he's Raiden. Every single element of the "dream", from Rose calling Jack up in the middle of a bloody war in order to [[StopHelpingMe complain about her love handles]], to Rose's electrical equipment being [[GainaxEnding possessed by lines of the Japanese syllabary and telling the couple how to clean toilets]], make fun of the stranger plot elements in ''Metal Gear Solid 2''.

** ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' is the subject of many new Discontinuity Nods, now that the franchise is in something of a revival and Creator/AkiraToriyama is supervising it more closely. The ''Xenoverse'' video games explicitly refer to it as a sort splinter timeline caused by Trunks' time machine shenanigans, and the much-beloved Future Trunks has a lot to say about his counterpart's methods, although he does come come around.

** Notably, the opening of the new ''Battle of Gods'' movie depicts JokeVillain Pilaf and his two minions, Shu and Mai, as having wished themselves back to elementary school-age. The main plot hook of ''GT'' was an aged Pilaf accidentally wishing ''Goku'' back to a child.

* When ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' got a full-color reprint of the manga, Akira Toriyama wrote a number of new articles [[WorldBuilding expanding on the setting]] or answering long-standing questions. One article discussing Dr. Gero's Androids mentions that #13, #14, and #15 are nearly complete but not yet ready to be activated; this is a nod to the NonSerialMovie ''Anime/SuperAndroid13'', where those three Androids (designed by Toriyama himself) were completed by Gero's supercomputer after his death at the hands of a rebellious #17.
