** At the beginning of the animated trailer for ''VideoGame/SonicMania'', a sketched Sonic initially appears with rabbit ears before they are erased and replaced with his more familiar spines. One of the earliest ideas pitched for Sega's new mascot entering the 1990's was a rabbit character named Feel.

*** The mobs found in Smash Run draw from almost every game represented in ''Super Smash Bros.'', plus a few other games not represented.

* ''TransformersWarForCybertron'' has some G1 nods. At one point, in the Kaon prison, an Autobot prisoner is pronounced guilty and thrown into a casket. He responds with "Spare me this mockery of justice!", the same quote from when the Quintessons sentenced Kranix the Lithone to Sharkticons in the original movie.

* ''{{Starcraft}}'' has Jim Raynor seeing the purple goo stuff that emanates from Zerg colonies and saying "What the hell is that!? Looks like the ground there is alive!". ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III'', meanwhile, has Jaina seeing the corrupted stuff that emanates from Undead colonies and saying "It looks like the land around the granary is... dying.".
* In ''SilentHill3'', the player is given the option of having the protagonist reach into a filthy (even by ''SilentHill'' standards) toilet to search for anything useful. [[WhatTheHellPlayer She refuses to]], and a cutscene plays in which she [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall looks directly at the camera]] and says "Who could do something so ''disgusting''?", referencing the protagonist of the previous game who did do without hesitation, which remains a frequent joke at his expense among the fandom.

* ''VideoGame/HometownStory'' is a shop-running game made by the creator of the ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' farming simulation games. The game itself has farms as the reliable sources of fresh produce, but they are nowhere near big enough to produce what the owners sell the player. The dairy/egg farm runs with one chicken and one cow and the fruit/vegetable one sells fruit from trees the yard clearly doesn't have. Both are exaggerations of the AcceptableBreaksFromReality ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' has in regards to real life farming.

** ''Jikkyo Oshaberi Parodius'', particularly its ''[[UpdatedReRelease Forever With Me]]''-port for [=PS1=] and Saturn, is full of Mythology Gags and references to other Konami games, like ''VideoGame/GanbareGoemon'', ''VideoGame/{{Twinbee}}'', ''VideoGame/LethalEnforcers'' and ''TokimekiMemorial''. Sadly as it's Japan-only, many miss the references and parodying jokes poking fun at the games. One guy seemingly tries to cover them up with his own response to ''History Behind Smash Bros'' with ''[[http://www.youtube.com/user/KonaKonaKaabisteru#grid/user/CA247C0247B91796 History Behind Parodius.]]''

* 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 ''{{Spore}}'', where you explore a galaxy in the last stage. If you manage to navigate to the centre of that galaxy, you'll find...

* When playing "Yellow Submarine" in ''RockBand: Music/TheBeatles'', the dreamscape depicts the band wearing the same clothes as their animated versions in the [[WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine film of the same name]]. Similarly, the song "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" depicts the eponymous band performing in Pepperland.
