* ShoutOut: The boxes of nailgun ammo have the NineInchNails logo on them (which makes sense, since Trent Reznor composed the music for the game.)

* InNameOnly: Aside from ''II'', ''IV'' and ''Enemy Territory'', none of the games' "plots" have anything to do with each other. Indeed, id originally wanted the "Strogg" arc to be an entirely new franchise, but ultimately decided the game needed the brand recognition which the "Quake" name would bring. (Also, their original idea for a franchise name was already trademarked by someone else.) ''Quake III Arena''[='=]s story makes an attempt to unite the different id universes until that time into a single story arc.

* ArtifactTitle: ''Quake'' referred to the protagonist in the game's early stages, then to "the enemy" in the supposed final game. In the end, neither the first game (or any game of the series, for that matter) makes reference to any thing in particular.

* SelfPlagiarism: The first game was pratically identical to ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' in gameplay and theme, with the only major difference being that it used true 3D instead of sprites. ''Quake II'' and ''III'' subverted this, the former by having a different theme, the later by focusing solely on the multiplayer aspect.

''Quake'' was one of the first major franchises to go big with licensing its engine to third parties, creating games like ''VideoGame/{{SiN}}'', ''SoldierOfFortune'' and ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'', as well as later ''MedalOfHonor'' and ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Dark Forces]]'' titles, and the first two ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' games (and, on a darker note, ''VideoGame/{{Daikatana}}'' and one of the incarnations of ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever''.)
