* The ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' short "Meet the Sniper" begins with Sniper poking a bobblehead in his van. Many people mistake the bobblehead for [[VideoGame/{{Half-Life}} G-man]], but it's actually Civilian from ''VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic'', which had ten classes instead of nine.

* Before making ''KingdomOfLoathing'', Asymmetric Publications made a game called Krakrox the Barbarian. Not only is Krakrox a historical figure in the kingdom, but several of the early items game from that game as well, such as the Ring of Half-Assed Regeneration. They also formerly ran a blog, which they reference from time to time. The palindromic haiku you perform to get the Pagoda came from there.

** Some of the things you can dig out of the garbage pits of Hobopolis are obsolete items from early versions of the crafting system, or now-useless items from some of the first in-game events. The "Baby Bugged Bugbear" can glitch some other such items back into existence, including a feather-headdress that was part of the original tutorial quest.

**''VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening'' has party banter involving [[HeroicSocipath Oghren]] hitting on [[ActionGirl Sigrun]] in increasingly more crude and unpleasant manner. This seems to be a reference to exactly the same situation from ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'' involving Korgan and Mazzy.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', the Sammer Guys are named after various random and bizarre things from previous Mario games, e.g.: [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3 Shoe of Kuribo]], [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga Mustard of Doom]], [[VideoGame/PaperMario64 Quizmo Question That Has No Answer]].

* The Spaceship Victory movie in ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}} IV'' has a black man who looks suspiciously like [[SidMeiersAlphaCentauri Nwabudike Morgan]] falling out of his [[HumanPopsicle cryopod]] and looking out over the new planet.

** Other minigames also contain references to past Kirby games and the anime such as Customer Service appearing on the game over screen of "Strato Patrol EOS", Macho-San/Max Flexer, and Chef Osaka/Shitake appearing in "Kirby Quest", and one of Kirby's attacks in the minigame being Kabuki Kirby from [[AllCGICartoon Kirby 3D]]. This is just the [[UpToEleven tip]] of the iceberg if you're a longtime Kirby fan
* In the intro of ''[[VideoGame/SimCity Sim City 2000]]'' you'll see a UFO flying into the centre of a spiral galaxy. Fast forward to ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'', where you explore a galaxy in the last stage. If you manage to navigate to the centre of that galaxy, you'll find...

** And then, the intro scene of ''SonicAndTheBlackKnight'' has him landing in the realm of KingArthur... holding chili dogs, effectively turning this from Mythology Gag to CanonImmigrant.
