* Similarly, ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'''s majority of shout-outs come from Peacock, a walking, talking, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick killing]] throwback to the GoldenAgeOfAnimation. She looks like something out of a deranged [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] cartoon. She's actually a small-scale RealityWarper, and her love of classic animation has her manifest the power as a gang of cartoonish cronies, and various powers based on old cartoons.

* Though for much of his history he had a disdain for anything mortal, Selfdemonstrating/{{Loki}} became this after he was resurrected in the body of a child and discovered the Internet. He is now one of the very few Asgardians who carries a cell phone (he [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard even]] [[SuperCellReception boosts the reception]] with magic), will use the Internet to accomplish his goals, play video games, and is constantly making pop culture references, having apparently become quite the fan of many movies and TV shows which he gets via "torrents of bits".

* Q-Feuille from KiddyGirlAnd is quite up to date to the latest shows in-universe and even admits to being an otaku, often shoting out to many popular real life hit Japanese media works. While not much else is shown in the show, she's also implied to be a big reader and has a large collection of novels in her rooms.

** Faith has brought up everything from ''StarWars'' to ''{{Transformers}}'' to ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', and she hasn't exactly been around Xander or [[HollywoodNerd Andrew.]] ** Buffy herself would obviously be pop cultured, and mentions both ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' and ''Films/JamesBond'' in the same breath. Her OneTrueLove Series/{{Angel}} however is even more so, being a Barry Manilow fan, a Creator/DouglasAdams fan, a huge Creator/CharltonHeston fan and just like Faith owns a PlayStation.

** When not wasting hordes of Jaffa or otherwise saving the world, Colonel Jack O'Neill never misses an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. He's also a bit of a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan, getting upset when the USAF wouldn't name the first Earth built starship "Enterprise". Also, when he traveled back in time, he said his name was James T. Kirk...then said it was [[StarWars Luke Skywalker]].
