In the game there are multiple sci-fi references scattered around the areas, including HAL 9000 from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, Voight-Kampff from the movie Blade Runner, Shodan from the video game System Shock, and Cyberdyne from Terminator series. These were most likely left as inside jokes from the developers, as the game's intended audience (ages 6-10 during its release in 2006) would have been oblivious to such references.

There is an unused model of Luigi with blue clothing which differs quite a bit from both Luigi's and every other character's model. One interesting difference is that this costume has its shadow model integrated into the model itself, rather than having it as a separate model.

Pokemon Sun & Moon
Alolan forms were introduced by the developers in order to illustrate that Pokemon are living, changing creatures. Pokemon who had migrated to the Alola region would therefore follow a different evolutionary path than their original counterparts, similar to the way real animal species in the Galapagos Islands followed their own unique evolutionary paths.

In order to create these Alolan forms, the developers revisited the Pokemon that originally appeared in Pokemon Red & Blue, since they are widely recognized by long time fans and would best express this concept with them. It would also help commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Pokemon series as a special surprise for fans.

Pokemon Sun & Moon
Pokemon Sun & Moon was Shigeru Ohmori's first time as the director of a new generation of Pokemon games. Because the game commemorates the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon, he wanted to go back and look at what he thought Pokemon games should be and create his own take on the series. He came up with the idea of Trials & Totem Pokemon as a replacement for Pokemon gyms to tie in with the Alola region's theme of powerful and abundant nature. He thought it would be an interesting concept and a way to make the game feel fresh for both veterans of the series and newcomers alike.

The time difference between the versions was inspired by the idea that Pokemon are living creatures - some are active during the day, others are active during the night. The developers thought this would be a useful feature to facilitate more communication and trading amongst friends.

In the North American instruction manual for Demon's Souls, on page 5 under "Character creation," there are several references to the American television series "The Simpsons."

If one examines the picture in the lower right of the page carefully, they will see that the characters pictured are given names referencing several "Simpsons" characters. These include Bobo, the bear Mr. Burns owned as a child from episode "Rosebud;" Lisa Lionheart, a doll that Lisa attempted to market in the episode "Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy;" and Princess Kashmir, an exotic dancer first appearing in the episode "Homer's Night Out."

There is also a reference to popular American radio broadcaster Barret Hanson, otherwise known as "Dr. Demento."
