** In ''VideoGame/SpaceQuestIVRogerWilcoAndTheTimeRippers'', the Energizer Bunny makes an appearance in the starting area. The Magmetheus bar theme is similar to the Cantina Band theme in ''Film/ANewHope'', and the lit tables resemble the tables at the bar in ''[[Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock Star Trek III]]''. There is a [[Film/ANewHope Landspeeder]] in the Space Quest XII era. After capturing Roger Wilco Jr., the Sequel Police say to Sludge Vohaul, "This is the [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi rebel scum]] we captured in the Space Quest 4 time sector." The Timebuster 2000 SUX is named after the 6000 SUX from ''[[Film/RoboCop1987 RoboCop]]''. The Space Quest X: Latex Babes of Estros era refers to the game ''VideoGame/LeatherGoddessesOfPhobos''. When Zondra says, "Into the sub, flyboy," this is a reference to Princess Leia telling Han Solo, "[[Film/ANewHope Into the garbage chute, flyboy.]]" At the Galaxy Galleria, Dandy and Radio Shock refer to Tandy and Radio Shack in the disk version. The Sacks store refers to Saks Fifth Avenue, and the Maebot refers to Creator/MaeWest. The games in Software Excess reference ''Franchise/CarmenSandiego'', ''Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Simulator'', ''VideoGame/DefenderOfTheCrown'', ''VideoGame/ItCameFromTheDesert'', ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'', ''VideoGame/{{Loom}}'', ''VideoGame/PinballConstructionSet'', ''VideoGame/SimCity'', and ''VideoGame/{{Trinity}}'', game designers Bill Budge, Brian Moriarty, and Roberta Williams, and game companies Creator/BroderbundSoftware, Creator/{{Cinemaware}}, Creator/LucasArts, Maxis Software, Creator/{{Sierra}}. The in-game hint book references ''Film/{{Poltergeist}}'', ''Series/TheFugitive'', ''Series/TwinPeaks'', Life Call/Life Alert commercials, and Ovaltine commercials. The games at Buckazoid Bill's Arcade and Sushi Bar reference ''VideoGame/BumpNJump'', ''VideoGame/DuckHunt'', ''VideoGame/{{Frogger}}'', ''[=Hard Drivin'=]'', ''VideoGame/SpyHunter'', ''Stunt Driver'', and ''[[VideoGame/MonacoGP Super Monaco GP]]''. ''Ms. Astro Chicken'' is a reference to ''[[VideoGame/PacMan Ms. Pac-Man]]'', and features Cedric from ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder King's Quest V]]''. At the arcade, Agent 13 of ''Series/GetSmart'' is in the trash can. When sitting in the time pod at the arcade, one of the aliens resembles Yoda. The ''[[VideoGame/SpaceQuestITheSarienEncounter Space Quest I]]'' era is a shout out to ''[[VideoGame/SpaceQuestITheSarienEncounter Space Quest I]]'' in EGA. The security droids resemble the Imperial Probe Droid from ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''. The Xenon Supercomputer GUI resembles a [[UsefulNotes/AppleMacintosh Macintosh]] and references ''[[VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry Leisure Suit Larry 4]]'', ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuest King's Quest XLIII]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/SpaceQuestIVRogerWilcoAndTheTimeRippers Space Quest IV]]''.

* FreewareGame VideoGame/{{Iji}} references ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' with one of the final boss' attacks, the game being inspired by the movie. The Scrambler will occasionally insert "mah boi" into sentences. Yes, Daniel Remar, the last person you'd expect to like YoutubePoop, made a YoutubePoop reference.

** One fish enemy in the Spring in the Sky has an iron pipe sticking out of its crotch, like the hero of ''Ashguine 2'', and the background music for that stage, "Curse of IRON PIPE," is based on a theme from that game (which is why it had to be replaced in the WiiWare version). The game is also referenced in Elder Xelpud's ramblings.
