In 2020, a Beijing court ruled that the 2018 Chinese fantasy comedy film Warrior Angels had infringed on SNK's copyright as some of the characters in the film resembled designs from The King of Fighters series. The film's character Qiao Fan transforms into a "red clad woman" which heavily resembles Mai Shirainui in her appearance as well as in her movement. SNK China was awarded in damages the equivalent of $111,500 with the film ordered to be pulled from distribution. However, the ruling is being appealed.

In March of 2018, a passive effect called "Sketchek’s Bequest" was added to the Pyro's weapon the Axtinguisher which granted the player a speed boost after killing a burning opponent. This was named in honor of the YouTuber known as Sketchek, a prominent Pyro player in the community, who in 2015 claimed in a video to have a "terminal illness" that was getting worse and had later presumably died. However in 2019, Sketchek returned and stated that he lied about dying because he wanted to retire from the game as it had "ruined his life" and he wanted to "go out with a bang." The effect was subsequently removed in an update.

Amantius Allectus' Diary, stolen during "May The Best Thief Win" may be a reference to the movie and musical "Little Shop of Horrors". The diary notes Allectus' cultivation of plants that feed on blood. He begins by feeding them cat and rat blood, but once he accidentally cuts himself on the plant, they begin craving human blood, which he then feeds them. In "Little Shop", the main character Seymour cares for a blood-thirsty plant who, once accidentally cutting himself on it, begins to feed it his own blood.

The quest, "A Shadow Over Hackdirt" appears to be a reference to the H.P. Lovecraft story, "The Shadow Over Innsmouth". The Lovecraft story tells of an investigator who travels to the town of Innsmouth, only to find it in shambles with few residents. The town is controlled by a cult of undersea creatures known as The Deep Ones. In Oblivion, the player travels to the dilapidated town of Hackdirt in search of a lost citizen of Chorrol, and finds a town in shambles with few residents. The main character soon learns the town is controlled by a cult underground known as The Brethren, with a book existing in the town entitled "The Bible of the Deep Ones". In addition, the Brethren feature large eyes unlike typical NPCs within the game. This may be in reference to Lovecraft's depiction of the residents of the town, "bulgy starey eyes".
