* The Necrons in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' started as a clear and blatant homage to the ''Terminator'' films: mysterious robotic skeletons, who carried on trying to kill you even if reduced to crawling torsos with no legs, and a special rule called "I'll Be Back". Later changes [[RetCon departed from this]], focusing more on their image as impossibly ancient servants of even more impossibly ancient monsters. Essentially now a bunch of [[AncientConspiracy Ancient Evil]] {{Determinator}}s with a lot of ImplacableMan and OmnicidalManiac along with rather too much scalpel imagery, they maintain the robo-skeleton and "I'll Be Back".

* ''LastAlert'' is a clear homage to ''{{Rambo}}''.
* '''SwordOfTheStars'' has the "Upstart Apes" scenario, which [[http://kerberos-productions.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=17311#p271005 has been admitted by the creators]] to be strongly inspired by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperium_(board_game) Imperium]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "New Kids in Town", in which [[AIIsACrapshoot Brainiac]] travels back in time to kill Clark Kent before he can become Superman, a scene set in a diner is lifted almost whole from the bar scene in ''Film/Terminator2JudgementDay''.

* ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters'' is shock full of this. In ''[=TimeSplitters=] 2'' the level Siberia is an homage to ''[[VideoGame/GoldenEye1997 GoldenEye]]''. The level is set at a dam in Siberia, 1990. One might add that Free Radical are made up of the core team of ''[[VideoGame/GoldenEye1997 GoldenEye]]'' and ''[=TimeSplitters=]'' is regarded as the SpiritualSuccessor to that game. But it doesn't stop there. VideoGame/NeoTokyo is set in a rainy Tokyo 2019, that is a copy of the style in ''Film/BladeRunner'' (also set in 2019). The MachineWars levels in ''Future Perfect'' are based off the ''{{Terminator}}'' franchise.

* ''Film/MarsAttacks''. The flying saucers are modeled after the saucers in ''Earth vs. the Flying Saucers'' and the War Room was made to look like the War Room in ''DrStrangelove''. The aliens land in Parrumph, Nevada. That's an homage to Art Bell, who for many years broadcast Coast to Coast AM out of that city.

* Music/DanielAmos's album ''Music/{{Doppelganger}}'' had several elements (the EvilTwin theme, {{chiaroscuro}} cover art, an overall dark atmosphere, and sprinklings of GratuitousGerman) as homages to GermanExpressionism. And the specific song "Hollow Man" is a tribute to Creator/TSEliot's poem "The Hollow Men".

* ''Series/KingOfQueens'' was explicitly designed as homage to the 1950's classic sitcom ''Series/TheHoneymooners'', to update the characters and settings to the 1990's. Perhaps in deference to modern sensitivities, Doug Heffernan never threatens violence to Carrie, although the ungracious "Shutty!" gets a lot of the way there...

* The opening cinematic for the ''CompanyOfHeroes'' campaign looks a lot like the Omaha Beach landing in ''SavingPrivateRyan''... which it then subverts by having the boat full of men first seen by the player get mowed down, including the sergeant-type character who's the only one to have spoken so far in the game. Every WWII game produced after ''Saving Private Ryan'' does this. ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'', ''VideoGame/{{Commandos}}'', ''Medal of Honor'', in fact the ''Frontline\Allied Assault'' games are essentially the game of the film, replete with a Tom Hanks soundalike commanding officer. Not surprising when the man behind the games is Steven Spielberg.

* ''WorldInConflict Soviet Assault'' has the Russian player character named Romanov, the same name of a certain [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquer Premier of the Soviet Union from another wacky universe]], although this could be coincidental as well.
