* ''The Noose'' - Something of a FollowTheLeader to ''Series/TheColbertReport'' and ''TheDailyShow With John Stewart'', this spoof news program goes with demographical rather than political stereotypes, and content-wise comes close enough to crossing the line to last seven seasons thus far.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' mentions in the Codex that Singapore is the site of a SpaceElevator, and considering that Singapore is the only prosperous and highly developed industrialized nation along the equator, it makes a lot of sense for one to be there. In the backstory, Singapore was the site of a transport accident that caused a major Element Zero contamination incident, exposing a lot of children ''in-utero'' and causing the development of biotics: party member Kaidan Alenko was one of these babies.

* ''OK Chope!'' - Another FollowTheLeader, this time to panel shows like ''Series/MockTheWeek'' (which has been obliquely acknowledged in the show). Several major changes to the formula include handing buzzers to all the players (referencing how the name "chope" is Singlish for claiming seats in an eatery or something similar), and pre-filmed segments like interviews to keep the show that much more current and relevant.
