* In a rare example where the universe is entirely fictional even though references to the real world are present, the city of Anor Londo in ''{{VideoGame/Dark Souls}}'' is strewn with real-world Renaissance portraits, engravings, and architecture. The only exception is a portrait of [[EverythingIsBetterWithPrincesses Princess Gwynevere]], which is taken straight from her concept art. While the portrait itself is beautiful and doesn't clash too badly with the setting, Gwynevere has [[GagBoobs certain attributes]] which make her painting instantly distinguishable from the real ones.

* {{StarCraft}} has a slight variation with the four names of the ships that carried humans to the Koprulu Sector; each are named after a famous ship from the past: the Nagglfar (named after the Naglfar of Norse mythology, the Ship of Nails that carries barbarians to fight the gods during Ragnarök), the Argo (from Greek mythology), the Reagan (likely named after the modern aircraft carrier) and the Sarengo, which presumably is a ship from an explored part of StarCraft history.

* Combined with an InspirationNod as well as possibly PersonAsVerb in ''Literature/RedRising'':In reference to famous military geniuses and conquerors: "So this kid is what? A predestined Alexander? A Caesar? A Genghis? A Wiggin?" (Wiggin being the protagonist of ''Literature/EndersGame''). It's particularly funny/odd because the people of the series seem to otherwise know that fictional works are fictional.
