Sonic Adventure
Attachment In Final Egg, two large stasis tubes can be found. One holds Metal Sonic, while the other holds an unknown Sonic-based robot, later referred to as Mecha Sonic Mark III by Ian Flynn. This robot has no importance in the story, however, it seems to be based heavily on the design of Mechagodzilla from the "Godzilla" franchise's Shōwa era, due to many similar parts and possible textures from the robot. This also seems to be a reference to Mecha Sonic Mark I, also known as Silver Sonic from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, whose concept art also shows similarities to Mechagodzilla.

On September 21, 2020, as part of his podcast BumbleKast, writer Ian Flynn expressed interest in adapting Cosmo and the Metarex from the animated series "Sonic X" into IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog comics, which would effectively incorporate them into the mainline Sonic canon. A year later, he would reveal that said arc would not happen anytime soon, as fellow writer Evan Stanley had more stories that needed to be finished. In January 2024, however, Flynn revealed that most content that comes from the show is off the table, including characters such as Cosmo, the Metarex, Topaz, Mr. Tanaka, and Ella.

However, there may be an exception to this in the form of the "Next Show", a fictional children's show featuring a purple mascot character named Next that Cream and Cheese are shown to be fans of during Sonic X. The show was first referenced in Cream's Sonic Channel profile, where it was listed as one of her likes. Later, 2023 would feature two seperate instances of the show being referenced: first during the "Otherworld Comedy" series of wallpapers posted on Sonic Channel, where it was mentioned in the story for the May 2023 wallpaper ("Story Act 5: My Vector Man"), then later as part of the official Christmas 2023 picture, where a toy based on Next appears amongst the pile of gifts.

Friday Night Funkin'
subdirectory_arrow_right Pico's School (Game)
A popular belief within the Friday Night Funkin' fandom is that the game's main protagonist Boyfriend used to be in a relationship with Pico, the main protagonist of Pico's School and the opponent of Week 3. This gained so much traction that Tom Fulp (the creator of Pico's School) jokingly said it was "official Pico 2 canon". Programmer NinjaMuffin99 initially claimed this was just a joke, but later changed his mind and confirmed it was canon. The cutscene for the song "Stress" alludes to this, as Tankman mockingly refers to Pico as Boyfriend's "sexually ambiguous, angry little friend."

On April 1st, 2021, Tom Fulp updated Pico's School as an April Fools Day joke, with this version ending with Pico revealing to Cassandra that he and Boyfriend are dating and that everybody in the school accepts them. The next day, this version would be released as a separate game called Pico's School: Love Conquers All, being set in an alternate timeline. Given that the game portrayed Pico and Boyfriend's relationship in a positive light, some fans have taken this as a sign that Tom Fulp approves of the idea that they were at one point a couple.

AI: The Somnium Files
Attachment In AI: The Somnium Files, during the chapter PSYNCIN' IN THE SUSTaiN, Aiba can interact with a wall of signatures and examine 3 specific autographs marked as "Left," "Middle," or "Right." Selecting these options give the following:

• Left - For 99 seconds, an autograph from someone named "Hongo" is shown. Aiba notes that she can't "picture the face" and a jingle plays.
• Middle - For 78 seconds, an autograph from someone named "Enoshima" is shown, featuring drawings of a black bear and a white bear. Aiba remarks that she "hopes" to find out who that is, and a second jingle plays.
• Right - For 12 seconds, an autograph from someone named "Mikimoto" is shown. Aiba describes him as "a photographer with some sort of beard like a mountain man" and a third jingle plays.

All 3 of these options are references to the games Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, and Kamaitachi no Yoru (renamed Banshee's Last Cry in the iOS English release). These games were all developed by Chunsoft or Spike (before the merger), and the jingles used are audio themes used in each game. These specific references are about Spoiler:the respective villains of each of those games, and doing all 3 of these options unlocks the achievement "Crazy Awful Customers."

999 - Spoiler:References Gentaro Hongou, nicknamed Ace, the antagonist of the First Nonary Game. He has prosopagnosia, a disorder that prevents someone from recognizing faces. The 99 seconds references the title of the game, shortened to 999.
Danganronpa - Spoiler:References Junko Enoshima, the mastermind of the "Killing School Life" death game who controls Monokuma. She holds the title "Ultimate Despair," and her goal is to abolish "Hope." The 78 seconds references her class at Hope's Peak Academy, Class 78.
KnY/BLC - Spoiler:References Yosuke Mikimoto (named Jonas Faberge in the iOS English release), the culprit of the murders at the skiing lodge. His disguise involves wearing a fake beard to appear as a mountaineering photographer. The 12 seconds references the 12 people staying at the skiing lodge, or perhaps the 12 potential victims that Mikimoto can kill in bad endings.

Kurohyou 2: Ryuu ga Gotoku Ashura-hen
Kurohyou 2 features a song which Ukyo can sing in the karaoke mini-game titled "Majima no MajiROCK", which features the voice of Goro Majima and his character profile on the song cover. Goro Majima is a character from the first Yakuza game who has appeared in every single mainline title since, but never made an appearance in either of the Kurohyou spin-offs besides this cameo, implying that he had to have recorded this song himself at some point.
Yakuza 0
Kan Ogita, Haruka's dance teacher in Yakuza 5 (considered a relatively obscure character) would later have a brief cameo in the prequel game Yakuza 0, where he was one of the opponents Kiryu could face in the Dance Battle minigames.

Sonic Adventure
Attachment In Speed Highway, several billboards can be found depicting an unknown female character. In 2020, Satoshi Okano, a former designer at Sega who worked on Sonic Adventure, revealed that this was a scrapped spider character he designed with the prototype name "Spider Girl", and posted an old sketch of the character alongside a sketch of another scrapped character, a bat named "Fly the Vampire". In 2023, Okano posted an inked version of the original Spider Girl sketch from the same time period alongside several inked sketches from the development of Samba de Amigo. Spider Girl's appearance on the billboards in Sonic Adventure suggests that the character lasted far enough into the game's development to receive a 3D model, but the character was ultimately scrapped for unknown reasons, and this 3D model has yet to surface on its own. It's unknown what role either Spider Girl or Fly were intended to have, though fans have noted that Spider Girl has some similarities to Rouge the Bat from Sonic Adventure 2, namely both characters have large bosoms and prominent heart-based/romantic imagery.

Yakuza 5
The Tsukimono area in Yakuza 5 features an ice sculpture of Hatsune Miku, a virtual idol likeness owned by Crypton Future Media and licensed out to Sega for video game appearences. Although this might be coincidental rather than an intentional reference, Crypton is located in Sapporo, the same city as Tsukimono.
The Adventures of Quik & Silva

Attachment Quik & Silva features many plagiarized characters as duplicated enemies, including characters from Nebulus, Bubble Bobble, Contra, and The Great Giana Sisters. Among these characters is Sonic the Hedgehog, whose first title had not released at that point, technically making it Sonic's first appearance in a home console video game, even if unauthorized and predated by the arcade game Rad Mobile.

WarioWare: Move It!
subdirectory_arrow_right Wario (Franchise), WarioWare (Collection), Wario Land (Collection)
In the cutscenes for Kat & Ana's stage in WarioWare: Move It!, Cractus from Wario Land 4 appears. This is the first time a Wario Land character has appeared in the cutscenes of a WarioWare game.

In the Japanese version of Move It!, Cractus has a slightly different name from the Cractus that appeared in Wario Land 4.

The latter game's Cractus was called フラワナ, or Furawana, a pun on "flower" and「罠」(wana, trap). The former that appears in Move It! however is called フラワニ, or Furawani, a pun on "flower" and「鰐」(wani, crocodile). This name change could mean the character was renamed, or the Cractus in Move It! is meant to represent a different individual from the same species.

The Tails Doll from Sonic R can be found in Pinball Carnival Zone Act 2, floating at the end of an exploding rollercoaster. However, the coaster's momentum would make most players automatically speed past and not notice him. When you jump and touch him, he will turn into a gold coin. His inclusion in the haunted level may be a reference to his status as the subject of various creepypastas.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
Attachment As a reward for contributing a $100+ donation to the game's Kickstarter campaign, backers could choose to join a clan of their choice to appear under in the game's credits. Six "Sword or Whip" Clans (connected to a vote on if Miriam's personal weapon should be a sword or a whip) were dedicated to voting on which Sword or Whip weapon would become the most powerful weapon in the game (the winner being Clan Katana with the Grand Izayoi sword), while the remaining eighteen clans were Community or YouTube Partner Clans, who would receive a code for a clan-specific item.

The Community Clans were represented by two Castlevania fan communities: the Dungeon clan (The Castlevania Dungeon forums), and the Operation Akumajo clan (a Castlevania Facebook group spun off from The Castlevania Dungeon dedicated to promoting the series following its 25th anniversary in 2011). The YouTubers and other companies who participated in the last clan group were associated with Fangamer, a video game merchandising company who managed the Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. To unlock one of the Community/YouTube Partner Clan items, you must enter its respective code as the name for your save file, and as such only one clan item can be unlocked per save file. The participating clans and their codes include:
