Demon's Souls
Attachment
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."

In the police station on scenario 'A', the player meets character Marvin Branagh as he is resting on a locker. The name tag on that locker reads "JoJo". This is a reference to the anime "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure", or possibly a nod toward Capcom's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (1998), which came out on the same year as Resident Evil 2 did.

Ken's original stage from "Street Fighter Alpha" was replaced with a beach stage in "Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix". The beach stage itself bares a strong resemblance to a piece of "Street Fighter II" artwork in which all the characters (including the "Final Fight" characters) are enjoying a day at the beach. The characters included in the background of the beach stage are Guile, Blanka, Cammy, Dee Jay, Zangief, E. Honda, M. Bison, Sagat, Balrog & Vega.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Attachment
There's a reference to the first Star Wars movie, "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope."

When Admiral Karath is interrogating the player, Bastila, and Carth, he asks for the location of the hidden Jedi Academy on Dantooine. One dialogue option has the player saying, "Alderaan. It's on Alderaan."

In the movie, Grand Moff Tarkin interrogates Princess Leia asking for the location of the secret Rebel base to which she replies with, "Dantooine. They're on Dantooine." Tarkin knows this is a lie and then proceeds to use the Death Star to destroy Leia's home planet of Alderaan. In the game, Darth Malak, the game's main antagonist, bombards Dantooine, resulting in the destruction of the Jedi Academy.

During one point of the game, some reversed speech can be heard. When played backwards it says:

"There's something I have to tell you: The Walrus is Paul."

This is a reference to The Beatles song "Glass Onion", which features the line:

"I told you about the Walrus and me man, you know we as close as can be man, well here's another clue for you all: The walrus was Paul."

Spoiler:Another possible connection between the song and the game is the fact that the line "The walrus was Paul" is seen by conspiracy theorists as a message that proves Paul McCartney actually died in 1966 and was secretly replaced by a look-alike (as walruses apparently symbolize death in some cultures). Because Bad Milk's story is an interpretation of reincarnation, this could be the reason the developer's chose to use that particular line.

Dragon's Crown's character select screen is almost identical to the one in Capcom's Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom. George Kamitani, the director of Dragon's Crown, worked as one of the designers on Tower of Doom, so this most likely is an homage to his earlier work.
