** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Dark_Master_-_Zorc Dark Master - Zorc]] was the BigBad of the Monster World story arc, which was a TableTopGame. From that comes the die-rolling effect, including the fact that a lower roll is better and the highest roll is a fumble. And the art for its corresponding ritual spell card, [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Contract_with_the_Dark_Master Contract with the Dark Master]], is based on the scene in which Zorc first reveals himself by transforming from a seemingly friendly NPC.

* ''VideoGame/LegendsOfRuneterra'', a spinoff of ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', includes the champion Lee Sin. His leveled up form kicks enemies into their own Nexus to damage it. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2XB2iIecXI This was something his League incarnation's ultimate could do in his intentionally overpowered April Fool's Champion Spotlight]].

** [[https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=398457 Call of the Full Moon]] gives your creature a power boost, but it goes back to normal if anyone casts two or more spells in a turn. This card represents turning your creature into an Innistrad-origin werewolf, and that drawback is shared by all the double-faced werewolf cards in the Innistrad block.


* ''MagicTheGathering'''s Time Spiral block, whose set theme was [[NostalgiaLevel nostalgia]], is naturally full of {{Easter Egg}}s and other little jokes about cards from older sets. For example: in the flavor text of [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=111082 Viscid Lemures]], [[LovableCoward Norin the Wary]] remarks that it's nice to face something harmless, like a lemur. On the (much) earlier [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=2457 Hyalopterous Lemure]], the artist had apparently never heard of a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemures "lemure"]], so the card is illustrated with a lemur.

** The card [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=74238 Persecute Artist]] doesn't let the caster choose Rebecca Guay. This is a nod to the time when rumors that Guay was being fired as a Magic card artist led to an InternetBackdraft.

** [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=191089 Lightning Bolt]] was cut from the main set after Fourth Edition as too powerful and replaced by cards with basically the same effect but less powerful/mana efficient. It was reintroduced in the 2010 set with the flavor text, "The sparkmage shrieked, calling on the rage of the storms of his youth. To his surprise, the sky responded with a fierce energy he'd never thought to see again."


** The twelfth edition's print of [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=233232 Giant Spider]] states that "The wild is always changing, but it does have a few constants." This is probably a reference to the fact that by this point, Giant Spider was the only card that has been in all core sets since the game's beginning.
