* According to Hideo Kojima himself, VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2 was supposed to feature this at one point, with the source of the Psycho Strings actually [[NightmareRetardant just being a soldier playing the violin]]. The animation for this proved too troublesome for the time, so the idea was scrapped.

* The entire shower scene is parodied in ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', strings and all. It only serves to make Fuura Kafuka even creepier, too--while the stabber changes between every shot (Bruce Lee, Freddy Krueger, and the DrunkenMaster to name a few), it's ''Kafuka'' we see dashing around the corner out of the bathroom.

* ''Film/{{Alien}}'' features Psycho Strings-themed music from composer Jerry Goldsmith in the third act, when Ripley, Parker and Lambert have decided to evacuate the ''Nostromo'' on the emergency shuttle. Parker and Lambert split from Ridley to obtain life support supplies for the shuttle, [[spoiler:the alien corners them. The Strings play most prominently when the alien turns slowly toward the petrified Lambert, its head and arm silhouetted against the emergency lighting. The track is called "Parker's Death".]]
