* As befitting the title several ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' strips offer incredibly obscure references, a selection:
** A flirtatious Jäger referring to a waitress as his little nokedli (it's a type of dumpling).
** More a "Wisconsinite" bonus but when Agatha was listing [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20031013 Othar's supposed exploits]] she included "Savior of the town of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Horeb,_Wisconsin Mt. Horeb]] from the rain of Mustard."
** Brillat-Savarin, mentioned [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070119 here]], was a famous gastronomist and essayist - just the sort that a minor spark would crow about outwitting.
** Spot the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etaoin_shrdlu typography Easter egg]] in the Geisterspeak on this [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20060104 page.]]
** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20160212 "If you analyze these vellum pages really thoroughly you get instructions on how to build a cow."]] The "instructions" in question are a sequence of the letters A, C, G and U...genetic code (specifically, RNA).

* ''Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}'': References Heinrich Heine's poems pop up in the libretto, mostly via Death's lines. This isn't surprising, because Lucheni stated in the first song that Elisabeth loved Heinrich Heine (she did, in real life). The original casting call for Death specifically stated that he should be "young, attractive, androgynous" and close to an idealistic representation of a young Heine. The German poet also contemplated death extensively.

* {{Subverted}} in ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled''. It includes a parody of {{Eliezer Yudkowsky}}'s "AI in a Box" thought experiment, with Kuyou as the AI and Kyon's sister as the gatekeeper, but the narration right out tells the readers of the experiment beforehand.

* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': A fair deal of background information and details rely on obscure knowledge that most readers do not realize during the first read. See that fic's [[YMMV/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell YMMV]] page for details.

* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' has a few examples, usually spouted by Gohan (to which Piccolo retorts "neeeeerrrddd"). But one of the more subtle ones was Piccolo's "Damn you, Pavlov" moment, which was followed by an interrupted explanation of who Pavlov was.
** The Namekians all speak in Klingon as well.
