* A RPG Maker game available on Steam named ''Suits: A Business RPG'' is pretty heavily influenced by ''VideoGame/{{OFF}]'', but instead of acknowledging it, it harshly mocks the predecessor. One early-game area is a haunted basement, where you find a man in a baseball cap who says he wants to exorcise the place but couldn't find the ghost responsible for the haunting. Right next to him you enter a boss battle with a ghost named Mortis (looking almost exactly like the avatar of Mortis Ghost, OFF's creator). After defeating it, the man in a baseball cap decides to attack you for the KillSteal, but you defeat him easily, at which point he exclaims "Guess you're really better than me..." before collapsing in a pile of guts and gore.

* ''[[VideoGame/RockBand Rock Band 2]]'' has one towards a band AND towards one of its biggest sponsors. In Band World Tour mode, occasionally you'll get random events asking you to do a benefit show or to do an encore in addition to the songs you chose, etc. One of the challenges is to do a sponsor show with Hot Topic to play a song by Music/{{Paramore}}. If you choose to do it, you'll get a decent amount of cash... And lose 25,000 fans in the process as well. This was later patched ([[ViewersAreMorons the official reason is players got confused when they lost fans]] and also [[DidntThinkThisThrough because the random events algorithm makes events appear more frequently the more they are rejected]]).

* '''''[=REELism=]''''', a mod for ''[[VideoGame/{{Doom}} Doom II]]'' has [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Bronies]] in one of the enemy slots. depicted as fat neckbeards in jeans, and don't do much but neigh and talk about the show in stilted, high-pitched voices, and serve as cannon fodder, meatshields, and ammo drops.

* ''Quik the Thunder Rabbit'', a PlatformGame released for the UsefulNotes/{{Amiga}} by Creator/TitusSoftware involving a fast-running [[FunnyAnimal anthopomorphic]] white rabbit, had a joke at the expense of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''. In the intro of the game, a tiny blue hedgehog is slowly making his way over a road before Quik zooms around the corner, causing the rodent to scurry away and leap off a cliff. Nothing like attacking what clearly inspired you...

--> '''Lewton:''' I won't bore you with the details of the Guild's security system -- after all, if you've seen one intrincate and fatal collection of [[BottomlessPit pits]] and traps you've seen them all. Suffice it to say, it took a lot of [[TrialAndErrorGameplay trial and error]], some scorched eyebrows and more levers than I could count. * ''VideoGame/KingsQuest2015'' has a subtle TakeThat to the games of Creator/TellTaleGames, such as ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' and ''VideoGame/TheWolfAmongUs'', which use the " will remember that" system. After helping a travelling merchant, Graham is asked by his grand-daughter Gwen if he will remember that, and Graham responds "he immediately forgot about it", [[UngratefulBastard which he did]]. Later on, after chasing some squirrels away from a pumpkin with a badger, Gwen asks Graham if the squirrels will remember that, to which Graham replies that they most certainly will. [[KillerRabbit They do]].

* In ''Franchise/BanjoKazooie'' Nuts & Bolts, as the game begins it does start to play like a traditional platformer with the duo in a race with Grunty. After a few seconds Kazooie interrupts saying "This will never work! Today's kids just want to blow up everything in sight!"

While Nintendo ignored the first, they retaliated back with legal action over their pokemon parody.

* Near the end of the "Genocide" path in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', Flowey explicitly calls out people who choose to watch playthroughs of the path rather than play it themselves, calling them "sickos" who are worse than the perpetrators; he then guesses that someone like that's watching as he speaks.
