A digital port of the Williams Electronics Addams Family pinball machine was planned to be released for the PC and Nintendo 64, with a possible PlayStation version, developed by Digital Eclipse and published by GT Interactive. The game would've featured both the standard and Gold versions of the table with a full 3D engine simulating the physics and properties of the real table. The game was planned for release in Christmas 1998 for N64 and PC, and an unconfirmed PlayStation release in 1999, however due to how ambitious the project was, GT Interactive reconsidered its viability and decided to abandon it, with the development only going as far as a 3D model of the table, physics engine and electronics emulation.

Two P's name and design are a tribute to the second player character from the Capcom arcade shooter Forgotten Worlds. Additionally, his backstory references this as well, as the players start out shirtless, and his catchphrase is an exact quote from the ending of the game.

On a side note, Two P is skilled at handling heavy weapons, referencing the Unknown Soldiers' large guns in Forgotten Worlds.

In one of Harley Quinn's introduction lines to Mr. Freeze, she asks if he can "make her a pony", to which he retorts, "It will make the twilight sparkle." Harley Quinn then will say, "Hahahaha! I was hoping you'd say that." This is a reference to Harley Quinn's voice actress, Tara Strong, who also voices Twilight Sparkle in the series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic".

MediEvil
According to MediEvil creator Chris Sorrell, he described MediEvil as a fusion of Capcom's Ghost n Goblins and Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas. It had the working title 'Dead Man Dead' before being called MediEvil.

"The first design proposal for the game had the working title ‘Dead Man Dan’ and described a game that was a fusion of Capcom’s Ghouls’n Ghosts with the art style of Tim Burton – especially the look and feel of The Nightmare Before Christmas. In both cases these were things that I was a huge fan of back in the mid ‘90s. Lead artist Jason Wilson shared my interest in dark, gothic influenced artwork and we worked together to define the look and feel of the game."

Spore
When the player's creature evolves into the tribe stage, a cutscene will play in which the creature learns how to use a stick as a weapon, then, as a way of celebration, throws the stick into the air and it lands on the creature's head.

This cinematic sequence is a parody of the opening sequence from the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey, where an ape learns how to use a bone as a weapon. Additionally, the intro cutscene from Spore features a remix of 'Sunrise', which is the initial fanfare of the tone poem "Also Sprach Zarathustra".

Using Beerus' level 3 super move "God of Destruction's Judgement" to finish off Goku Black will instead have Beerus perform "Destruction" referencing the moment in the series where Beerus destroys Zamasu before he tries to steal Goku's body. This is further evident by the fact that Beerus will refer to Goku Black as Zamasu in the win screen.

The world record for the fastest completion time in the game has had contentious debate over its legitimacy. Todd Rogers had held the record since 1982 with a completion time of 5.51 seconds which he submitted to Activision’s official fan newsletter, which was also later recognized by the Guinness World Records. Despite even having support from Activision's founder David Crane over it's legitimacy, Rogers was stripped of his record in 2018, as well as his records for other games, as it was determined with evidence that the only possible legitimate fastest record to get in the game was 5.57 seconds.
