** Dani for TK. Crosses over into FamilialSubstitute in "All the King's Horses".

** In "Might As Well Face It", Starhawk is an actual game for the PS3. That said, it's unlikely that any tournament for any game would fill a stadium like they showed - even the biggest e-sport game has trouble selling out a large auditorium (online viewers however are another story).
