When testing Doc McCoy's abilities, place the scarecrow at the sunk boat, then place it at the edge of the dock. McCoy will place the scarecrow and then walk to the end of the dock and raise his hand. A synthesizer noise will play, and the boat will rise out of the water and be deposited on the bank. John Cooper then walks over and says: "May the force be with you, young McCoy". This is a reference to a scene from the 1980 film "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" where Yoda uses the Force to telekinetically lift Luke Skywalker's sunken X-Wing out of a swamp.

Halo Infinite
In June of 2022, a cosmetic nameplate to commemorate the holiday Juneteenth was released but received much backlash due to a secondary palette for the nameplate being named, "Bonobo". The bonobo is a type of great ape, and many saw it as a racist connotation in association with the holiday. The nameplate was quickly renamed "Freedom", and an apology was issued, with 343 Industries' senior community manager John Junyszek later stating that the palette name originated from an asset-editing program commonly used at the studio, although it was not used in the development of Halo Infinite.

One piece of concept art for Chapter 2 by Gigi DG, depicting the entrance to Queen's Mansion, features a note indicating that the design of the building is taken from "that toy story ride." This most likely refers to the Tokyo DisneySea version of Toy Story Mania, which similarly features a giant, grinning effigy of Woody's head as its entrance.

In the background of Seam's shop, one can spot a doll designed after Yoki, a character from Deltarune designer Temmie Chang's games Escaped Chasm and Dweller's Empty Path. In Chapter 2, the Yoki doll is redesigned to match changes in Chang's own depiction of the character. The original design was initially still present in Chapter 1, but was later altered in the Version 1.08 update to match Chapter 2.

If the player attempts to leave town, an alternate ending will play depicting a boy pleading the Man With No Name to "come back, Shane," to which he responds by shooting him for getting his name wrong before leaving. This cutscene parodies the ending of the 1953 western film Shane, right down to the boy's design.

Some of the game's cutscenes are poorly drawn renditions of scenes from the Clint Eastwood film For a Few Dollars More.

•Train Scene - Game Version / Original Film Version

In addition, the game's title is a play on Clint Eastwood's character "The Man with No Name" from the same film.

Gex: Enter the Gecko
In the boss stage, "Mooshoo Pork" should the player enter into Look mode using the Triangle button and face the left area of the stage for several seconds, a sudden message in green font will come up in the upper left hand corner of the screen, citing: HOORAY FOR BUNNY GEX/HE SURE IS A FUNNY GEX/RA RA RA.

This seemingly out-of-place message is in direct reference to the bunny costume that Gex dons during the "Toon TV" stage.

Looking at the right side of the unlockable concept art for Showdown with Omegaton will reveal a gigantic dinosaur hiding in the water. Considering that this level takes place in Tokyo, it is most likely a reference to Godzilla.

In Mos Espa, you'll encounter a mysterious droid holding a Kyber Brick who you follow into an abandoned home, only to then have it creepily stare at you in a cutscene and mysteriously vanish. This droid is most likely Nobot, a background character first appearing in the film Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace whose backstory is currently mostly relegated to the Legends continuity.

In Legends, Nobot had years ago mysteriously showed up in Mos Espa covered in blaster marks and dried blood with its serial number missing and now aimlessly wandering the city streets. It has a broken communication module which from time to time will play a recording of what sounds to be a woman being murdered. This woman had apparently been pregnant and it's unknown whether Nobot had either killed her or simply witnessed the murder. Nobot's backstory had been written by fan Shaun Flaherty which would become acknowledged by Lucasfilm.
