Otacon: The Donkey Kong who fought that epic battle with Mario was this guy's grandfather.
Snake: That was a long time ago. What about this Donkey Kong? Does he get along with Mario?
Otacon: Nope, they're still at it. Seems like they're always competing in something—kart racing, sports, you name it.

Janey: Wait a minute. How could Brer Rabbit be fishing next to Brer Wolf? Didn't he just try to have him for dinner?

—The Adventures Of Brer Rabbit
"The game's premise is simple. Dr. Wily, the Mega Man (Classic) series' perennial villain, has given up his goal of world domination. He is now seemingly content to dominate a single soccer stadium. Instead of prancing about a small square room until Mega Man shows up, Dr. Wily's evil robots resign themselves to kicking a ball around a field until Mega Man shows up. And instead of shooting Dr. Wily between the eyes and saving society the trouble of having to put up with him ever again, Mega Man opts to challenge each of his robot minions to tedious, crudely animated soccer match."
"You know what you go-kart with Bowser? You make Detective Stabler cry."
