*** In fact, the game was ''filled'' with these, since it was basically a reference to the series as a whole, to wit: the return of the BattleThemeMusic that had been last heard in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', a sidequest involving characters named [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII Doga and Une]], the in-game band's performance of the Rufus march from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', the appearances of black mages as faceless people with glowing eyes underneath wide-brimmed hats, which had been avoided (at least for player characters) after ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', and the general return to cartoonish proportions in the character design, which had been eschewed in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', the Alolan variation of Exeggutor heavily resembles the one featured on [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/6/66/JPJungleBoosterbox.jpg the Jungle booster box for the Japanese trading card game]], which has a long body and is drawn closer in size to an actual palm tree.

** Also from ''Sun and Moon'', in the Pokemon Graveyard off Route 2 you can fight a Pokemon Breeder named Ikue, who fights with a Pikachu and goes "Pikaa..." when you defeat her. This is a reference to Ikue Otani, who provides the voice of Pikachu in the anime (and in the games since X and Y).

* In ''BackyardSports: Sandlot Sluggers'', Kiesha Phillips, Pablo Sanchez, and Vicki Kawaguchi have their nicknames from the first games, before the ContinuityReboot.
* ''EccoTheDolphin: Defender of the Future'' features occasional references to the original games; Hanging Waters in particular is ''packed'' with them. The level itself is the 3D version of the Skyway, the squid may be referencing both the Eight-Arms and the flying medusa all in one go, and the giant bird towards the end calls the helpful pteranodon to mind, right down to how he's summoned with song.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has a number of references to other Atlus-made games.
** Ryuji's thief outfit is a WholeCostumeReference to the recurring ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' Demon Hell Biker.
** The enemies are mainline ''SMT'' Demons, a la ''{{VideoGame/Persona}}'' and ''{{VideoGame/Persona 2}}''.
** The protagonist can play a video game called ''Star Forneus 1988''. [[Literature/ArsGoetia Forneus]] is a recurring Demon in the ''SMT'' series, appearing ever since ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTensei''. The "star" is another Goetia Demon, Decarabia, who was a friend of Forneus in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne''.
** In one scene, Yusuke and the protagonist pose like the demon Orobas in the first ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI''.
** The midbosses in TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon are made up of [[spoiler:Uriel, Raphael, Gabriel and Michael, the four archangels]] from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII''.
** When Satanael descends from the heavens, he pops the iconic arms wide open AssKickingPose used by demon Lucifer in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'' and the games that followed it.
** The DLC costume packs include Karukozaka High School uniforms from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIf'' (the SpiritualPredecessor of the ''Persona'' franchise), the school uniforms of Raidou and Kaya from ''VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVSTheSoullessArmy'', the casual clothes of the cast from ''VideoGame/{{Catherine}}'', and the samurai uniforms of the heroes from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV''.

** Any originals and series not returning in the ''Second Z'' are directly referenced, although the only series that don't come back are ''Mazinger Z'', ''Grendizer'', ''Getter Robo G'' and ''Eureka Seven'' TV series. One example includes Kamille asking the current Kouji how [[Anime/UFORoboGrendizer Duke Fleed]] and [[Anime/GreatMazinger Tetsuya Tsurugi]] are doing, before realizing this Kouji has never met them. [[spoiler:In regards to ''Eureka Seven'', its ADW-counterpart being different becomes a PlotPoint]]. Still, it helps prevent the problem that was present in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' games, where a series appearing in one game and didn't appear in subsequent ones (''GiantRobo'' and ''Anime/BrainPowerd'') aren't mentioned at all, as if they were ExiledFromContinuity.

* In ''VideoGame/TheJackboxPartyPack 3'', during the login screen for ''Guesspionage'', two co-workers can be heard discussing a portal apparently visible behind a Burger King. One of the two happens to be voiced by developer Arnie Niekamp, host of ''Podcast/HelloFromTheMagicTavern'', which happens to start with Arnie following a portal behind a Burger King.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'''s arena themes are for the most part, remixes of the main battle themes of previous games. For example, the 11th game ([[FireEmblemAkaneia Shadow Dragon]]) uses the 9th game's ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]) while the 8th ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Sacred Stones]]) uses the 2nd's ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Gaiden]]).

** In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Aqua Centrum appears and says she'll never wear anything as {{Stripperific}} as Lamia Loveless, a nod to the fact that in her debut game ''MX'', she actually wears an outfit even '''more''' revealing. In the same game, the epilogue has [[spoiler:Axel Almer]] reference the Shadow-Mirror's "Project EF", a direct nod to the spinoff ''OG Saga: EndlessFrontier''.

** The alternate costumes in ''Street Fighter IV'' are occasionally Mythology Gags. For example, Zangief's alternate costume is [[VideoGame/FinalFight Mike Haggar]]. ''Super Street Fighter IV'' seems to be going even further into it: Zangief gets [[CapcomVsWhatever Mecha-Gief]], and, one of the most clever connections in the series, [[BruceLeeClone Bruce Lee homage Fei Long]] gets [[Franchise/TheGreenHornet Kato]] as an alternate costume.
