* [[Creator/MidwayGames Bally]] pinball artist Dave Christensen included several risque bits in the backglass art for ''[[Pinball/CaptainFantastic Capt.

* Creator/DataEast's ''[[Pinball/StarTrekDataEast Star Trek]]'' has phrases on the inlanes leading to the flippers, each of which is paired to one of the female characters. The left inlane shows "To boldly go..." with (evil) Uhura, while the right inlane has "Where no man has gone before" with Janice Rand.

* The backglass for ''Pinball/PopeyeSavesTheEarth'' shows Olive Oyl lounging next to a bottle of "Extra Pure Virgin Olive Oil Sun Blocker".
