* If you're a Japanese who's huge lover of classic {{Shoot Em Up}}s and {{Creator/Konami}}, you might claim ''VideoGame/{{Parodius}}'' to be actually the ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Smash Bros]]'' of Shoot Em Ups, with lots of Japanese craziness and LSD, and is also a huge tribute to Konami's Shoot Em Ups as well as its other famous game series. At first it was meant to parody VideoGame/{{Gradius}}, but as the series evolved on, characters like [[GanbareGoemon Goemon and Ebisumaru]], VideoGame/{{Twinbee}} and VideoGame/KidDracula started to show up, each equipped with weapon sets taken from many Shoot Em Ups of the time. The inclusion of some bosses and villains from other Konami games and [[PublicDomainSoundtrack classic music medleys]] along with Konami's music (mainly from Gradius) doesn't help.

* In ''InazumaEleven 3'', several of the original Raimon team members from the first game get PutOnABus early on by not getting picked for the Inazuma Japan team. Starting in Chapter 5, a team of four of the aforementioned characters become one of the mini-battle RandomEncounters in Liocott Island's Japan Area. If they show up to challenge you, the ensuing battle will have a couple cosmetic elements revert to the first game's style, particularly the background music.

* The boss of the Tutorial in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' is the Asylum Demon, which bears a more than passing resemblance to the Vanguard that ended the tutorial in ''DemonsSouls''. In contrast to the HeadsIWinTailsYouLose near-HopelessBossFight scenario of the Vanguard, after initially having to flee from the Asylum Demon, you come back with a proper weapon and a vantage point for a DynamicEntry and utterly destroy it -- this is ''hugely'' satisfying to anyone who played the earlier game.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' contained many [[ContinuityNod nods and references]] to its prequel, but some of the funniest were in the water chips. In the first game: MacGuffin. In the second: They come in packs of five, you can find over 100 in an area barely a quarter into the game, and a portal into the past causes the PC to create a StableTimeLoop by breaking the chip from the first one...

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' contained many [[ContinuityNod nods and references]] to its prequel, predecessor, but some of the funniest were in the water chips. In the first game: MacGuffin. MacGuffin you had to scour the wastes to find a replacement for. In the second: They come in packs of five, you can find over 100 a hundred in an area barely a quarter into the game, and a portal into the past causes the PC to create a StableTimeLoop by breaking the chip from the first one...



** Also, in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', several of [[TheEngineer Tali's]] battle quotes are "Go for the Optics, Chiktikka!" which is a ShoutOut to the ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' character Minsc, who sometimes will shout, "Go for the Eyes, Boo" before battle, as well as "Nothing is faster than Chiktikka vas Paus", which is a pun on one of Aerie's, another Baldur's Gate character, battle quotes, where she says "Nothing is faster than Chiktikka fastpaws." Another gag is found on the Citadel, where one can purchase a "Space Hamster", which is the name of the species which Boo (purportedly) belongs too. The hamster even gets a special appearance in the ''Citadel'' DLC for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', assuming you caught it on the Normandy...where, if you interact with it enough, Shepard will advise it to go for the eyes if anyone messes with it.

** There is also an easter egg (after getting the Light Side and Dark Side endings, then starting another game as a female character) where Atton says something like "Are you an angel? Wow that was bad, I hope some stupid kid doesn't end up using it." when you enter the cell block on Peragus.
*** There was another one that was cut from the game, where Atton says he shouldn't even be in the game and was meant to star in a spin-off of ''VideoGame/JediKnight'' - namely, ''VideoGame/JediAcademy'', which came out around the same time.
