** When creating your Arisen and Main Pawn, you can name them whatever you wish; however, you must then select a second name from a list of "monikers," which is the name that will appear online if the name you've chosen has been blocked by another player's console's parental controls. The list of monikers that you can select includes names from many of Capcom's other games, including [[Franchise/StreetFighter Chun-Li, M. Bison]], [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]], [[VideoGame/AsurasWrath Asura]], and [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 Magnus]].

Added DiffLines:

''Dragon's Dogma'' can certainly remind the player of many other games and stories.

* There are apparent references to ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. Two of the preset characters bear a strong resemblance to Guts and Casca, with Mercedes herself being a visual {{expy}} of pre-Eclipse Casca. As part of a cross-promotion deal with the 2012 ''Golden Age Arc'' [=OVAs=], the game included two sets of ''Berserk''-based equipment: Griffith's "White Hawk" armor set and sword, and Guts' "Black Swordsman" armor set and his nameless pre-Eclipse greatsword (unofficially named "Thousandlimbs"). However, due to licensing issues, the equipment had to be dummied out of the Steam release.
* There's a few nods to Capcom's own franchises, including:
** One of the character classes is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xL_DROBLNds ninja-like]] VideoGame/{{Strider}}.
** Every dragon enemy in this game, including the BigBad, have weak spots with their hearts. In 1988, Capcom made ''Videogame/ForgottenWorlds'', an arcade sci-fi shmup with a badly injured dragon as the second boss. The Dust Dragon, as this boss is called, has a weak spot with, you guessed it, its heart. You even have to expose it to attack it as you do in ''Dragon's Dogma''.
** When creating your Arisen and Main Pawn, you can name them whatever you wish; however, you must then select a second name from a list of "monikers," which is the name that will appear online if the name you've chosen has been blocked by another player's console's parental controls. The list of monikers that you can select includes names from many of Capcom's other games, including [[Franchise/StreetFighter Chun-Li, M. Bison]], [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]], [[VideoGame/AsurasWrath Asura]], and [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 Magnus]].
*** Other monikers include shout-outs to other media; for instance, one of them is [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Rhaegar]].
** The "Blink Strike/Burst Strike" sword skills are similar to [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante's "Stinger"]].
** The "Sprint/Mad Dash" special attacks are almost identical to [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Guy's]] Hayagake dash special, with the only difference being that the overhead kick is replaced with a jump which can then be followed up with midair attacks.
* Possible Pawn quotes:
** "[[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail 'Tis but a flesh wound!]]"
** "[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings You shall not cast!]]"
* When creating your Arisen, they can have a reddish scar/smear across the bridge of their nose, very similar to the default appearance of [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Hawke]].
* The golems definitely seem to reference [[Franchise/FinalFantasy certain]] [[Manga/NausicaaoftheValleyoftheWind other]] laser-spewing constructs with their delayed-explosion beam sweeps.
* The trophy for maxing someone's Affinity is called "[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory To Affinity And Beyond]]".
* One of the quests is called "[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Off With Its Head]]".
