The Wonderful 101
Contributed by G-Haven
In the first meeting with Wonder Pink, Wonder Blue will comment "Hey, can we save the meet-and-greet for later!? We got a pain in the butt hedgehog to get rid off!", referencing the Gedie Dough-Goo they are under attack from and unable to defeat. The Gedie Dough-Goo itself is covered in blue spikes and has a spinning ball attack, making a strong reference to Sonic The Hedgehog.

This is also ironic, as Wonder Blue's english voice actor is Roger Craig Smith, who also voices Sonic the Hedgehog in the modern-gen Sonic games (Starting with Sonic Free Riders and Sonic Colors in November 2010).

The Putt-Putt series was also made by Humongous Entertainment.

However, three days before he was scheduled to leave, Yoshimura had stumbled onto what some of the concept artists were working on, asking if they needed any suggestions. He was enraged that they weren't taking the Metal Gear concept seriously in the development process and that they "cannot place this in a Metal Gear game!" He decided to stay for half a year beyond schedule until he was certain that it was up to the standards of Metal Gear.
