Trivia: Tomb Raider Anniversary
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • Shout-Out: In the developer commentary, they explain that the ark was removed from the manor, because it might have been trademarked.
    • In the Tomb of Qualopec, there's a giant rolling-boulder-of-doom-trap that Lara needs to trigger in order to proceed. If the Trope name doesn't clue you in to what this might be a reference too, it was later discovered that the boulder had a bullwhip and Indiana Jones -type hat flattened onto it.
    • The Croft Manor's appearance is modelled after the one in the movies.
    • Two references to the Legacy of Kain franchise:
      • a painting of Kain can be seen hanging in Croft Manor.
      • Raziel's emblem is stamped on the Wetsuit, one of the unlockable outfits.
    • And then there's a slew of shout outs to previous Tomb Raider games:
      • The Camouflage outfit is one of the outfits worn by Lara in Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness.
      • The Wetsuit outfit one of the outfits worn by Lara in Tomb Raider II.
      • The Classic outfit is a model reminiscent of the blocky one Lara had in Tomb Raider I.
      • The Croft Manor Sport outfit is the outfit Lara would wear at home in Tomb Raider I.
      • The Legend outfit is Lara's main outfit in Tomb Raider: Legend.
