*** And by extension, a prominent feature in the ''VideoGame/{{Parodius}}'' series. Again they usually star in their own special stage that usually includes a moai head (that may or may not fire other moai heads) as a boss, as well as a gigantic battleship with moai-themed turrets. Some of them have three eyes, some of them have sunglasses, some of them smoke pipes. Stage 2 of ''Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius'' turns the cast of ''TokimekiMemorial'' into Moai heads.

* ''VideoGame/IllusionOfGaia'' has a couple of large stone heads in its "Mu" stage (Mu being the mythical lost continent that Easter Island is supposedly a remnant of), though they don't look much like traditional Moai. They are used in a [[SolveTheSoupCans puzzle]] where you have to [[GuideDangIt search the otherwise unremarkable spot where their line of sight intersects]].

* To help him face a pair of opponents in Memphis, Psycho Gecko of WorldDominationInRetrospect has a Moai magically enchanted to serve as his minion. Moai, as it is simply called, has never said a word and it's never been explained how he can hold things. Gecko has become so fond of him, he doesn't seem to mind when Moai's version of a hug breaks his ribs. He even got Moai a pukao for Christmas one year.

* Waterbury, CT has a life-sized replica of a moai, for no readily apparent reason, in the parking lot of the Timexpo museum. [[http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2640/4157301593_d20d82f7a6.jpg Here it is]], flanked by the lovely and scenic I-84, some dead bushes, and the worst ghetto in the city.

* Some of the surface missions in ''VideoGame/{{XCOM}}: Terror From The Deep'' took place among moai, as if they were on islands all over the Pacific.

* One of MarvelComics's early, pre-''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' monster comics revealed the Moai to be silicon-based aliens, buried up to their necks. When the Kronans (aka the "Stone Men From Saturn") were later introduced in ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'', they were given the same appearance, with the distinctive elongated heads, despite having no explicit connection to Easter Island. The Kronans still pop up occasionally in Marvel titles [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk (The Hulk]] befriended one during "Planet Hulk"), and their heads still look like Moai.

* The first design of the Toa's and Matoran's unmasked faces in ''{{Bionicle}}'' seems to be loosely based off the Moai, in keeping with the various references to Polynesian culture. There is also a Matoran named Hafu who is famous for his stone statues, and a similar large stone head can be seen overlooking the Kini-Nui temple in the story material.
