* ''MythologyGag/SonicGenerations''



* ''MegaManZX Advent'' is crawling with {{Mythology Gag}}s. Two items you can find are a manga starring Konroman, a camping stove robot master from the highly unpopular ''VideoGame/MegaMan & Bass'' game for the Wonderswan, & a picture of the [[ContemptibleCover hated US boxart]] of ''VideoGame/MegaMan1''.
* In the Xbox 360/[=PS3=] versions of ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', you can buy chili dogs, Sonic's favorite food from [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM the animated series]] [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog of the '90s]].

** Once Classic Sonic appears in the trailer for ''VideoGame/ProjectSonic2017'', he strikes [[https://i.gyazo.com/f8cf54111a59f29969d0b2754aa5b653.png a pose]] very similar to ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'''s [[http://img.gamefaqs.net/box/3/1/6/7316_front.jpg box art]]. (It also resembles [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/sonic/images/9/95/Sonic-Generations-Metal-Sonic-Stardust-Speedway-5.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110825161030 his pose]] after beating Metal Sonic in ''Generations''.)

** Also, in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', several of [[TheEngineer Tali's]] battle quotes are "Go for the Optics, Chiktikka!" which is a ShoutOut to the 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.

** The theme for the game that plays in both the opening and the ending, as well as part of various tracks, is a very heavy synthetic remix of the iconic At Doom's Gate song from the first Doom. The ambient music that plays after returning to the [[spoiler: destroyed Argent facility]] sounds much like the opening notes of 'E1M2' as well.

** In ''Brawl'', Snake's Codec conversations are full of references to VideoGame/MetalGearSolid that weren't present in his stage. In addition to whole slew of other things, he compares Ness to Psycho Mantis, Pikachu's electricity to Revolver Ocelot's torture device, and references Big Boss and Liquid when talking about Link's LegacyCharacter status.

** Cloud's alternate costumes include the SOLDIER 2nd Class and SOLDIER 3rd Class uniforms as seen in the original ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' (''not'' the ones from ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', which changed the colours), and his redesign from ''Film/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren''. His attack sounds are recreations of his PSX sound effects and his taunts include his PSX spell-casting animation and his 'SOLDIER pose' CharacterTic from the original game's field mode.
