YMMV: Colossal Cave
- Adaptation Displacement: Nearly everyone who has ever played this game played a port.
- Anti-Climax Boss:
>KILL DRAGONWITH WHAT? YOUR BARE HANDS?>YESCONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE JUST VANQUISHED A DRAGON WITH YOUR BARE HANDS!
- Memetic Mutation: "Xyzzy", a magic word used to teleport to and from a certain room early in the cave. It has become a meme in Interactive Fiction circles, to the point that developers tend to program responses to it in their games.
