Attachment Generica's holiday outfit is a reference to the outfit worn by Jack Skellington, the main character of the 1993 stop-motion animated film "The Nightmare Before Christmas". When given said outfit, she'll state "What's this? What's this? This outfit reminds me of a nightmare I had once, just before Christmas.", which not only alludes to the film's title, but also to the song "What's This?" from the film, which is sung by Jack when he first arrives in Christmas Town.

Holocure: Save the Fans!
1
The "Sausage" and "Legendary Sausage" weapons in Holocure: Save the Fans! are based on the mobile games Sausage Legend and Sausage Legend 2, which are known for being played on livestreams by Hololive talent Oozora Subaru and her viewers. According to developer Kay Yu, he was granted permission by the Sausage Legend developers to reference the game via these weapons and its collaborations. In 2023, the references culminated in Hololive working with the Sausage Legend developers to release special skins for Sausage Legend 2 based on Subaru and fellow member Hakui Koyori.

Yume Nikki

Within the Underground World (a hidden area in the Dream World only accessible by sleeping in one of five replicas of Madotsuki's bed, randomly chosen each time she falls asleep) is a large corridor full of fire. Normally, this room requires Madotsuki to obtain and equip either the Snow Woman or Umbrella effect, which produces precipitation that puts the fire out and allows her to proceed into the Storage Room. However, if she enters this area as a snowman (by equipping the Hat & Scarf effect and pressing the 1 key in the Snow World) and stands next to the fire, she will slowly melt into a puddle of water; pressing the 1 key while in this state reverts her back to human form, as with the un-melted snowman.

While Madotsuki can also become a snowman in the blizzard generated by the Snow Woman effect, the weather would carry over to the corridor and extinguish the fire immediately upon entering. Consequently, Madotsuki can only access this Easter egg via the blizzard that appears by default in the Snow World.

Attachment In 2010, Nintendo held a competition in Flipnote Studio themed around the Mario series' 25th anniversary, and released an animation for a song with lyrics titled "The Mario Drawing Song" to promote it. This song would later be re-arranged as a slower instrumental and included as the background music that plays on the World Special-8 map in Super Mario 3D Land.

For Honor

Attachment The male Berserker class in For Honor was voiced by Stefán Karl Stefánsson, an Icelandic actor best known for portraying the villain Robbie Rotten in the live-action children's series LazyTown. The character was the subject of various internet memes throughout the show's run, the most popular of which being the song "We Are Number One" from the episode "Robbie's Dream Team". Following Stefánsson's widely-publicized death from bile duct cancer, a pair of Robbie Rotten references were added to the game as a tribute. These include:

• An emote named "Number One", where the Berserker transforms into a statue raising a finger upwards, resembling a pose Robbie Rotten does leading into "We Are Number One", with the caption "In Memoriam - to our Number One villain".
• A bot named "RobbieBotten" who plays as the Berserker and wears blue and red stripes, a similar but not exact proximity to the color scheme of Rotten's outfit.

In this version of the game, the Spin Jump button is the same button as the Jump button. This is a first for the series, where the Spin Jump is usually performed by pressing the trigger buttons or shaking the controller. However, on the title screen, if you hold down the left stick for 3 seconds and press L and R, the Spin Jump button will be reverted back to the triggers, and the Jump button can no longer be used for it. Nabbit's voice will be heard when going to the main menu if the control switch is successful. This control option was not advertised or mentioned at any point by Nintendo, and appears to be an Easter egg.

Throughout several games in the Yakuza series, songs from Sega franchises will play in businesses like convenience stores and karaoke bars. While an official list of every song and where they were used throughout the series has not been finalized, some known examples include songs from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, the Phantasy Star series, Jet Set Radio Future, Nights into Dreams..., Clockwork Knight, and Space Channel 5: Part 2 among others.

Another Crab's Treasure

Just before fighting Spoiler:Praya Dubia towards the end of the game, the background music that plays in the lead-up to the boss fight is a song titled "Crab Grave". The title of the song and its core notes (while not sharing the exact same melody) are a reference to "Crab Rave", a house song composed by Irish electronic music producer Noisestorm and accompanied by a CGI music video depicting crabs dancing on a remote island that later became a meme.

In 2023, the game's official Twitter account hosted a poll to decide the name of a character set to be added to a future "Beach Bash" event (the character was tentatively named "Crab-chan" on account of her being "literally a crab turned into a waifu"). The options given were all crab-based puns: "Crabitha" (a portmanteau of "crab" and "Tabitha"), "Shelly" (a reference to how many species of crab have shells), "Pearl" (a nod to how crabs are capable of creating "pearl sacs"), and "Crabigail" (a portmanteau of "crab" and "Abigail"). The name "Shelly" ultimately won, and she was added to the game as part of the Beach Bash Event 2024.

Star Fox Zero
subdirectory_arrow_right Star Fox 2 (Game)
1
By scanning a Fox or Falco amiibo in Star Fox Zero, the Arwings and Walkers will be swapped out with 16-bit era models as seen in Star Fox and Star Fox 2. The old Arwing model's Charge shot does not lock on to targets, which reflects how they did not have a lock-on feature in Star Fox, but only in Star Fox 2 did they have a Charge shot. At the time of Star Fox Zero's release in 2016, Star Fox 2 remained unreleased, with only leaked beta builds being available, including one that allowed you to lock on to enemies with the Charge shot. The game would eventually be completed by Nintendo and released in 2017, but with this lock-on feature removed. Since Nintendo only showed Star Fox 2 to developers actively working on the series, it's believed that PlatinumGames noticed this feature's removal and referenced it in Star Fox Zero over a year before the game's release by making the old Arwings behave accurately to a version of Star Fox 2 that players did not know about.

The character Colonel Claus Von Stiffenberg is named in reference to Claus von Stauffenberg, a German army officer most famous for his failed assassination attempt of Adolf Hitler on July 20, 1944. Similarly, the speech that he gives as the Zombies declare war on the other factions is a reference to "Ich bin ein Berliner" (translated to "I am a Berliner"), a speech given by U.S. President John F. Kennedy during the Cold War, specifically the line "All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin, and therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words "Ich bin ein Berliner!"".

Cid, a recurring character in the series who is usually a mechanic with some relation to airships, first appeared in Final Fantasy II and did not appear in the first Final Fantasy game. For the Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls re-release however, the original game's plot was retroactively changed to make "Cid of the Lufaine" the ancient creator of the airship that the protagonists used.

The series' in-universe Precursor language appears in several instances throughout the game, most notably in a series of Story cutscenes. During news broadcasts covering the racing tournament, a news ticker scrolling across the bottom of the screen produces a developer message from Naughty Dog when translated. The message says hello to the player and alludes to save data-based unlockable contents. However, an as-of-yet undiscovered secret is explicitly shared; the message does offer an input code, but to date, no use or purpose for it has been found.

Attachment One room that Madotsuki can encounter in the FC House's basement is a blue, castle-like area populated by several goblin-like creatures. The design of these characters appears to reference the Famicom version of Bokosuka Wars, which features a similar monster on the "you win" and "you lose" screens.

Hogwarts Legacy
1
The plot of Hogwarts Legacy was purposefully set in a time period where many pre-established characters from the Harry Potter franchise (such as Newton Scamander or Harry Potter himself) are not around. According to lead writer Moira Squier, this was done in order to provide the player with a unique world. As part of this, the writing team focused on creating a diverse collection of characters for players to potentially identify with:

"All the writing team got together and would pitch ideas. We wanted a diverse collection of professors, students, vendors in the shop, etc. People called upon their own experiences. Hopefully you play the game and see a character and go "That's like my sister", or an uncle, or anything like that. And we really wanted to tie it to the familiar world – so you'll hear there's a Weasley, a Rookwood… Professor Black is a known character as a portrait in the books, so fleshing him out, we really loved."

However, while main characters from across the franchise are not present, selected minor characters (such as Nearly Headless Nick and Peeves the Poltergeist) are still present in the game.

The character Commandant SixFour is named in reference to the Commodore 64, the console where the first video game based on Risk was released on. This is alluded to in the game's Campaign Mode, where it's shown that Commandant SixFour uses outdated visual technology reminiscent of the Commodore 64's graphics, which leads to him Spoiler:betraying General McGutterpants shortly after activating, as he cannot tell the difference between the Humans and the Cats, thus declaring war on both.
