Franchise: The Simpsons
In 1990s-era marketing for The Simpsons, Bart was consistently seen wearing light blue shirts in place of the orange shirt seen in the series, a still-unexplained phenomenon that has been referenced within the show itself. This element of marketing was reflected in many of the show's tie-in games, often with inconsistent shirt colors between a single game:

The Simpsons Arcade Game features Bart in his light blue shirt for a majority of the game, however in the opening, one can see Bart wearing a red shirt for a brief moment when he jumps out of the school building.
• Most versions of The Simpsons: Bart vs. The Space Mutants depict Bart wearing a red shirt, a slight difference from orange. The Amiga, Atari ST, and Amstrad versions, however, depict him wearing light blue in gameplay, though the red can still be seen on the title screen, cutscenes, and box art.
• Bart wears a show-faithful orange in all versions of The Simpsons: Bart vs. the World. However, the sliding puzzle minigame in the NES version features an image of Bart with the light blue shirt, based on the famous "Don't have a cow, man!" t-shirt.
The Simpsons: Bart's Nightmare primarily uses Bart's orange shirt. However, the title card shows Bart with a green shirt, and the Bartman minigame has Bart wear a bluish grey shirt, Bartman being assigned the blue shirt while regular Bart wears red or orange becomes a common theme from this point.
The Simpsons: Bart Meets Radioactive Man is primarily a blue shirt game. However, in the intro, Bart begins with his orange shirt, which becomes a blue shirt when he dons the Bartman mask.
Virtual Bart, while typically showing alternate universe Barts, shows Bart with an orange shirt whenever he is in his original outfit. However, the box art shows Bart wearing blue.
The Simpsons: Night of the Living - Treehouse of Horror primarily features the orange shirt Bart, but he wears a blue shirt briefly in the intro.
The Simpsons: Hit & Run is entirely an orange shirt game, but Bart can be seen with a dark blue shirt on the box art.
• In The Simpsons: Tapped Out, the most recent Simpsons video game, Bart wears an orange shirt, but Bartman wears a blue shirt.

The Simpsons: Bart's House of Weirdness, The Simpsons: Virtual Springfield, The Simpsons Bowling, The Simpsons Wrestling, and all versions of Hit & Run and The Simpsons Game all feature Bart wearing only orange shirts (even when Bartman appears), while The Simpsons: Cartoon Studio is the only game where Bart only wears blue shirts. Cartoon Studio was the final game to primarily use blue shirt Bart, while The Simpsons: Bart's House of Weirdness was the first game to not have any blue shirt Bart whatsoever. The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Juggernauts and The Simpsons: Escape from Camp Deadly depict blue and red shirt Bart respectively on their box arts, but do not have color, being Game Boy games.

At the start of Bayonetta, a funeral is held for a notorious criminal known as "Eggman the Destroyer". This, to a Western audience, seems like a very obvious reference to Sonic the Hedgehog's main antagonist Dr. Eggman, as Bayonetta was published by Sega. However, series creator Hideki Kamiya claimed that he randomly chose the name Eggman and was not aware that there existed a popular Sega character with the name, choosing to leave it as is in the hopes that fans would "get a kick out of that".
Star Fox Adventures
subdirectory_arrow_right Dinosaur Planet (Game)
Attachment There's a fairly common misconception that the character of Krystal was originally meant to be a cat in Dinosaur Planet, prior to being redesigned as a vixen when the project was transformed into Star Fox Adventures.

The reality is that despite having a somewhat feline look, Krystal was always intended to be a fox as early as Dinosaur Planet, her original backstory even claiming that she belonged to the "Vixon Tribe" on planet Animus (Sabre and Randorn on the other hand belonged to the "Wolven Tribe", as they were both wolves). Former Rare artist Kevin Bayliss has stated multiple times that she was meant to represent a stylized arctic fox in particular.

Game Boy Camera
The unlockable end credits of the Game Boy Camera samples the Twinkle Elementary School theme music from Mother, better known as the Your Name, Please? theme in its internationally released sequel, EarthBound. The director of the Game Boy Camera, Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka, had previously composed the soundtracks for both games.

Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition
Attachment When setting a profile on Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition, you can choose a favorite game from a near-comprehensive list of official NES/Famicom games released within the console's original lifespan, including games made by third parties, regional retitles, and even licensed IP games. As a result of this, it marks the first time since their release that Nintendo has officially acknowledged Mario is Missing! and Mario's Time Machine, a pair of third-party Mario educational games, discounting a vague and dismissive unnamed acknowledgement in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Crush Crush
Attachment Generica's holiday outfit is a reference to the outfit worn by Jack Skellington, the main character of the 1993 stop-motion animated film "The Nightmare Before Christmas". When given said outfit, she'll state "What's this? What's this? This outfit reminds me of a nightmare I had once, just before Christmas.", which not only alludes to the film's title, but also to the song "What's This?" from the film, which is sung by Jack when he first arrives in Christmas Town.

Holocure: Save the Fans!
The "Sausage" and "Legendary Sausage" weapons in Holocure: Save the Fans! are based on the mobile games Sausage Legend and Sausage Legend 2, which are known for being played on livestreams by Hololive talent Oozora Subaru and her viewers. According to developer Kay Yu, he was granted permission by the Sausage Legend developers to reference the game via these weapons and its collaborations. In 2023, the references culminated in Hololive working with the Sausage Legend developers to release special skins for Sausage Legend 2 based on Subaru and fellow member Hakui Koyori.

Collection: jubeat
The jubeat series utilizes a scoring system to determine its ranks and whether a player clears or fails a song, with notes scoring points depending on how close they are to a Perfect timing. At least 700,000 points are required to get the lowest passing grade of C. This means it is possible to obtain a full combo yet still fail a song through lack of points by intentionally hitting all notes early/late enough to still register as a Good.

Marvel's Spider-Man
In a 2018 Syfy Wire interview with writers Christos Gage and Jon Paquette, they revealed that Silver Sable and Sable International were included in the game because they felt that there needed to be a presence or force in the overworld that added more stakes and tension to the game once the story events "became dire".
Zenless Zone Zero
To promote the release of Zenless Zone Zero, publisher HoYoverse collaborated with several graffiti artists to create graffiti based on the game across nineteen different cities in Indonesia.
Samurai Deeper Kyo
While Samurai Deeper Kyo received a formal release in Japan in 2002, it was never actually released in stores on its own in North America, instead being included as a bonus in the source material's complete series DVD box set in 2008. This made the North American version of the game the last officially licensed game released for the Game Boy Advance.

Star Fox 2
According to programmer Dylan Cuthbert (who reportedly help named the original pilots from the first Star Fox), one of the new pilots in Star Fox 2, Fay, was named after his childhood crush, a girl who lived next door to his grandparents' house. Although Fay, as well as Miyu, were never officially given proper surnames, Cuthbert has stated that in his head, he's always considered their full names to be Fay Sinclair and Miyu Swift respectively.

Yume Nikki
Within the Underground World (a hidden area in the Dream World only accessible by sleeping in one of five replicas of Madotsuki's bed, randomly chosen each time she falls asleep) is a large corridor full of fire. Normally, this room requires Madotsuki to obtain and equip either the Snow Woman or Umbrella effect, which produces precipitation that puts the fire out and allows her to proceed into the Storage Room. However, if she enters this area as a snowman (by equipping the Hat & Scarf effect and pressing the 1 key in the Snow World) and stands next to the fire, she will slowly melt into a puddle of water; pressing the 1 key while in this state reverts her back to human form, as with the un-melted snowman.

While Madotsuki can also become a snowman in the blizzard generated by the Snow Woman effect, the weather would carry over to the corridor and extinguish the fire immediately upon entering. Consequently, Madotsuki can only access this Easter egg via the blizzard that appears by default in the Snow World.
Super Mario 3D Land

Attachment In 2010, Nintendo held a competition in Flipnote Studio themed around the Mario series' 25th anniversary, and released an animation for a song with lyrics titled "The Mario Drawing Song" to promote it. This song would later be re-arranged as a slower instrumental and included as the background music that plays on the World Special-8 map in Super Mario 3D Land.

For Honor
Attachment The male Berserker class in For Honor was voiced by Stefán Karl Stefánsson, an Icelandic actor best known for portraying the villain Robbie Rotten in the live-action children's series LazyTown. The character was the subject of various internet memes throughout the show's run, the most popular of which being the song "We Are Number One" from the episode "Robbie's Dream Team". Following Stefánsson's widely-publicized death from bile duct cancer, a pair of Robbie Rotten references were added to the game as a tribute. These include:

• An emote named "Number One", where the Berserker transforms into a statue raising a finger upwards, resembling a pose Robbie Rotten does leading into "We Are Number One", with the caption "In Memoriam - to our Number One villain".
• A bot named "RobbieBotten" who plays as the Berserker and wears blue and red stripes, a similar but not exact proximity to the color scheme of Rotten's outfit.

Beyond Good & Evil 2
In September 2020, it was announced that the game's original director and series creator Michel Ancel would be retiring from the video game industry to focus on working for a wildlife sanctuary, but it was assured that development would continue without him. Later that month, the French newspaper "Libération" reported that several members of his team at Ubisoft Montpellier had accused him of acting abusive and unorganized, resulting in numerous delays and restarts since the game's announcement in 2008. This behavior was allegedly worsened by his simultaneous work on Wild (a big-budget game announced in 2014), preventing him from working on Beyond Good & Evil 2 with its team full-time. Although reports were submitted to company leadership as early as 2017, it was alleged that Ancel's relationship with Ubisoft co-founder Yves Guillemot prevented any major corrections from occurring until June and July 2020, when employees from all over the company came forward with sexual abuse and other misconduct allegations against high-ranking executives. Ubisoft would later comment that Ancel had not been directly involved in the game's development for "some time now" before his departure.

Ancel was interviewed as part of Libération's investigation. He claimed that Guillemot informed him that Ubisoft was investigating him in early August 2020, but claimed he was unaware that numerous team members blamed him for the game's development issues, and believed they were actually caused by long-term stress and burnout. He claimed he resigned on his own accord and that his only regret was not finishing the game sooner. The newspaper claimed that the interview took place on September 18th, the same day that Ancel and Ubisoft's statements about the departure were released. One week later when the report and interview were published, Ancel denied all of the allegations in an Instagram post, calling the articles "fake news" and accusing the newspaper of publishing them as soon as possible to conflate them with the earlier Ubisoft allegations in June and July, over a month before Ubisoft's investigation into him allegedly began.

Indigo Park
There is a miniature model of Lloyd the Lion located in the back of the Lloyd's Main Stage Theater area. According to the game's creator UniqueGeese, he couldn't remember why exactly it was there, but theorized that he was simply testing the model and forgot to remove it due to how small it was. He added that he likely won't remove it because "it took forever for people to find it."
Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis
Attachment The Kentrosaurus notably has a unique quirk in that it will panic if placed in the same enclosure with other large herbivores, barring some exceptions like the Stegosaurus. This is in contrast with the Prima guidebook that makes no mention of this behavior and even recommends to house the Kentrosaurus with all other herbivores in the game, which suggests that this was either a glitch or an oversight on the development team's part.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
In this version of the game, the Spin Jump button is the same button as the Jump button. This is a first for the series, where the Spin Jump is usually performed by pressing the trigger buttons or shaking the controller. However, on the title screen, if you hold down the left stick for 3 seconds and press L and R, the Spin Jump button will be reverted back to the triggers, and the Jump button can no longer be used for it. Nabbit's voice will be heard when going to the main menu if the control switch is successful. This control option was not advertised or mentioned at any point by Nintendo, and appears to be an Easter egg.
