* The ''XY'' saga of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime features Poke-Vision, which is essentially an equivalent of Website/NicoNicoDouga. Only time will tell if there is a "Film Festival" [[DayInTheLimelight Arc]] taking place just prior to the next TournamentArc.

* On WereAlive, Saul and Victor discuss watching [[=DVDs=]] of the TV show, [[Series/{{Lost}} "Found,"]] and complain that they'll never find out how it ended.[[note]]Since the ZombieApocalypse began in May 2009, they never got to see how the show ended. Saul does say [[TakeThat "They'd probably just screw it up, anyway."]][[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/CodeBlack'' takes place at Angels Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles, which for all intents and purposes ''is'' Los Angeles County Hospital, right down to using the iconic edifice of the latter for landmark exterior shots. L.A. County really did open in 1930, its trauma room really was the birthplace of modern emergency medicine, C-Booth (called Center Stage in the show) was very real, and it really is the busiest emergency room in the nation. This is, of course, because the show was inspired by a documentary of the same name a documentary filmed at L.A. County Hospital.

Added DiffLines:

* Pretty much everything gets renamed in ''VideoGame/PaydayTheHeist'' and [[VideoGame/{{PAYDAY 2}} its sequel]], from organizations to gun manufacturers. The Federal Bureau of ''Intervention'' has much broader authority than the real-life FBI. The Murkywater PMC is known (to Bain, at least) to commit war crimes. All Glock-inspired firearms are manufactured by Chimano.

** ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' features coffee from DC Blend (with a suspiciously Starbucks-like logo and cup) and Caf-Pow (never Big Gulp). The cups do look remarkably like 7-11 Big Gulp cups, but "Caf-Pow" appears to be the name of the beverage, not the name of the size.

* The "Hotel Oasis" in ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare3'' is a very obvious copy of the real-life Burj Al Arab in UsefulNotes/{{Dubai}}. This is enforced as said hotel [[spoiler: apparently just lets the BigBad, the game's in-universe Russian equivalent of OsamaBinLaden, check in with 50 or so of his terrorist buddies]] and the developers probably didn't want to get sued by the real hotel.

* "Calsci", the fictional university in ''NUMB3RS'', is basically [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caltech Caltech]] in everything but name -- right down to the full names (California Institute of Science vs. California Institute of Technology), and the location (somewhere in Pasadena.) Not surprising, considering several of the show's consultants are Caltech faculty, and some of the show has been filmed there.

* Peter T. Garratt's short story "The Next Big Thing" is set around the death of a writer working on tie-in novels to the fantasy-races-in-space wargame ''[=BattleSpear=] 20K'', obviously based on ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K''.
