    Live Action TV 

  • Castle: "The Invisible Man" reveals that the US government has started researching stealth armor, but is significantly behind the Chinese, who have already started making them. Quite reminiscent of the state of affairs in the Fallout universe.
  • Personof Interest: In "A House Divided", the computer showing Vigilance's show trial of Finch, Greer, and Control initially has a test pattern on its screen saying "Please Stand By", one that looks remarkably similar to one of the initial loading screens of Fallout.

    Video Games 

  • In Borderlands, one of the control schemes you can select is called Nuked, and bears an obvious resemblance.
  • In Borderlands 2, one of the optional skins for Zero is a Vault suit.
  • Duke Nukem: The music played at the Duke Dome, with the air raid siren, is lifted from Fallout.
  • League of Legends: Apocalyptic Brand looks like he just stumbled out of the Fallout world.
  • Marvel: Avengers Alliance:Ares has a buff called God of War which grants the team passive called "War Never Changes."
  • Resident Evil 4: "It", aka U3, looks like a centaur, particularly the earlier games. Its second form even ends up with two heads, like the Fallout centaur.
  • Team Fortress 2: The Mann Vs. Machine achievements aren't any slouches in shout outs and/or bad puns, including the "Brotherhood of Steel."
  • Wasteland 2:
    • One piece of junk is a Control Chip #13 that according to the description is an exceedingly rare item designed for controlling water systems.
    • Don turns away a customer for attempting to pay with bottle caps.
