Mythology Gag: Web Original
  • The Rifftrax for Batman & Robin contains a joke pointing out the resemblance between Dr. Woodrue and a certain character from Rifftrax's spiritual predecessor...
    Bill Corbett: (as Woodrue) Yes! Now to achieve my lifelong dream of launching a man into space and forcing him to watch really bad movies!
  • In the October 2, 2008 HoloNet News broadcast, when discussing the Separatists' new super weapon, there was mention of how big a ship had to be to mount an ion cannon capable of wiping out entire task forces. The minimal values that the commentators suggest were 8, 12, and 17... which happen to be the different lengths Super Star Destroyers have had in various official media.
  • In the current version of the webnovel John Dies at the End, the protagonists are heading to a final showdown without really knowing what to expect, and the narrator is armed with a chainsaw. At one point, he wonders whether he could have gotten caught in his situation with a dumber weapon. This is a nod to the earliest version of the story, wherein the narrator is in the same situation but armed with a sword.
  • There Will Be Brawl is chock full of Mythology Gags from all over the Nintendo universe.
  • In The Brothers Mario by The Game Station, has the eponymous characters knock over an armored truck with a million coins. They mention how it's enough to buy a new life. It's enough to buy 10'000 new lives.
  • Lucky Day Forever has some visible influence from Alek's other animations, like the robots from "Smile", the strange attitude of "Polsupah", and 514's facial structure which is comparable to the poet from "Hanged Man's Elegy".
  • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Abridged contains a plethora of in-jokes from its source material.
  • Ever After High is chock full of gags inspired by the source materials.
  • Vaguely Recalling JoJo
    • Before the recap of the 2nd part of the Rubber Soul mini-arc, Rudolf von Stroheim entered the Guile Look-a-Like contest and wins First Place, which is a reference to Guile being based on Stroheim.
    • Sort of. Jotaro mistaking Benimaru Nikaido for Polnareff is a reference to how Benimaru was explicitly based off of Polnareff (to the point that some of SNK's development team sometimes still call him Polnareff.)
