This page list shout-outs from Web-based Roleplays.

Works with their own subpages:

Other Works:

  • Destroy the Godmodder is full of these. It references Minecraft, Team Fortress 2, and Homestuck most often, but other common sources are Star Craft, Fez, Halo, and the SCP Foundation.
    • Small ones pop up all over the place, Codex Alera, Madness Combat, Lord of the Ring, Star Wars, sometimes even other forum games.
  • The Murderverse:
  • STO Forum: Versus thread (rp): Eleya has a habit of this:
  • Rain Quest:
  • Survival of the Fittest:
    • Character Keiji Tanaka is shoutouterffic. Among other things, he is constantly referencing the Final Fantasy series.
    Keiji Tanaka: Man, it's like the beginning of that game, except I don't have a gunblade, I got a broken sabre. Least Lenny can't fireball me, with like, kaPOW and stuff! Man, that would hurt." (The opening sequence of Final Fantasy VIII)
    Keiji Tanaka: Shit! SHIT! Injury! Medic! Somebody get me a potion! Who's on healing duty!? Critical hit people! Critical hit! With, like, the extra loud sound and red numbers and stuff!" (A general reference to the common healing item in the series)
    Keiji Tanaka: Oh poopy'! (A direct quote from Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series Mystery Science Theater 3000)
    • Guy Rapide also mentions in passing having had a friend named Lucien Lachance. Other shout outs include catchphrases from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, an adopted character suddenly talking like Kefka, direct quotes from films and games, visual tricks, namedrops, and sometimes characters that're slightly revised versions of one from some other media (the recent mod applications had a sample profile that was quite literally just a modernized Riku.) If one had the time and patience, an entire wiki could probably be dedicated entirely to documenting shout outs in Survival of the Fittest.


How well does it match the trope?
