* [[https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/File:Frightened_Flunky_full.jpg Frightened Flunky]] looks mighty similar to a certain [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Shaggy Rogers]].
* Pyschopomp offers you to [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay come with him if you want to re-live]].

* [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir The Cloud Prince of Skywall]]: ""In West Cloudidelphia, born and raised; flinging lightning for the rest of my days."
** Possibly double-duty, considering Could Prince is an air elemental, and [[Film/Aladdin2019 genies]] in [=WoW=] are air elementals as well.



* The first Tavern Brawl of 2017 pits the player against an AI-controlled Dark Wanderer, who starts with three Secrets in play. Trigger all of them, and a portal is summoned that, on the next turn, transforms him into the [[VideoGame/DiabloII Cow King]], heralded by "You have made it to the Secret Level!"

* One of the neutral Legendaries of the set is called [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Harbinger Celestia]], and the card text confirms that the reference is intentional. As a side note, Mage's Legendary minion from the set being named Stargazer Luna is probably not a coincidence.
