** The entire Myth/RobinHood episode in the last season. It was seemingly inspired by the game based on ''[[Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves Prince Of Thieves]]'' that came out around the time, but they clearly couldn't license that game and instead the episode is a mix of general legends about the character and a generic idea of what a Robin Hood game ''might'' be like.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Considering the spotty research the show's known for it might well be coincidence, but one episode reveals that the one game even Captain N couldn't beat was ''The Adventures of Bayou Billy'', which as any NES fan will tell you is one of the hardest and cheapest games on the system.

** "I Wish I Was A Wombatman" is clearly intended to capitalize on Sunsoft's ''Batman'' video game, which in turn was based on the [[Film/{{Batman}} Tim Burton movie]], although the character of Wombatman appeared much earlier in "The Most Dangerous Game Master" as part of a throwaway gag.
** "Misadventures in Robin Hood Woods" is based on ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'', which had [[VideoGame/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves a tie-in NES game]]. Since the story of ''Robin Hood'' is public domain anyway.

Since the story of ''Robin Hood'' is public domain anyway.anyway, there wasn't any licensing issues involved outside the use of actors' likenesses.



** One of Kevin's greatest advantages was that he had played all of these games and knew all of the shortcuts, enemy weaknesses and strategies. Even if it's something he couldn't possibly know from playing Nintendo games, like where warp zones between disparate games are.

** King Hippo appears as one of Mother Brain's henchmen; in ''VideoGame/PunchOut'', he was hardly as mean as Little Mac's other opponents, even offering to take him out to lunch.

* DancesAndBalls: Lana's unexplained desire to have one is the background of the episode titled, fittingly, "Having a Ball." Which ends up being kind of weird since that only ends up giving King Hippo and Eggplant Wizard the chance to sneak in and steal the Triforce while nobody's around.
