* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' - There is a certain scene in ''Modern Warfare'' with Sgt. Paul Jackson entering a playground that looks eerily similar to the one seen in the dream sequence of ''Franchise/{{Terminator}} 2''.

** Another in-series example: one of the randomly-generated FSO agents in the ''[=MW3=]'' level "Turbulence" is named Dmitri Petrenko - except for one missing letter, the exact same name as the Russian player character of ''World at War''
** This troper found Dmitri Petrenko as one of Kamarov's soldiers coming to rescue Soap and Captain Price at the end of the first game, suggesting that the ''World at War'' character may have actually been named after ''him'' (since it came out a year later).

* ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'' - In ''Modern Warfare 3'', the S.A.S. and G.I.G.N. special forces appear exactly like their depictions from ''Counter-Strike'' (notable because this depiction is not necessarily reflective of their real-life appearance, especially in the case of the S.A.S., due to variances in equipment loadout and battle dress uniforms).

* ''Literature/GenerationKill'' - The level in ''[=MW2=]'' where you control the gun of a humvee is very similar to the end of the second episode, when the Marines of First Recon were shown being ambushed after leaving Nasiriyah. The sudden prevalence of the MilitaryAlphabet compared to the first game, where no one ever even said "Oscar Mike," could be attributed to Generation Kill as well.
