Bass and Tina's father-daughter relationship shares similarities to that of the one between former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and his daughter Brooke Hogan. Hulk Hogan was known to be very protective of his daughter in spite of her efforts to be more independent, which is often portrayed in their stage personas and public appearances. Also like Tina, Brooke has pursued careers outside of pro-wrestling; including modeling, acting, and music.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Attachment
In April 2012, to promote the game prior to its first playable appearance at E3, Konami created an alternate reality game (ARG) entitled "Make It Right" which primarily involved fans performing instructions revealed on the official Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Rising Facebook pages and websites weekly leading up to E3. The campaign started on April 25th, when Konami released a new teaser for the game hinting at news to be revealed five days later. In addition, Konami manufactured two replicas of Raiden's severed left arm and sent them to Game Informer and Electronic Gaming Monthly. Connected to each of the arms was a USB drive that contained several cryptic images related to the game's plot, as well as the first in a series of short, live-action trailers promoted as secret video files found in Raiden's arm which were released by Konami over the course of the ARG. These videos depicted flashbacks to Raiden (voiced by Quinton Flynn) undergoing surgical procedures initiated by Maverick Security Counseling, Inc. that ultimately turn him into a Cyborg Ninja, as well as flashbacks to his time training as a child soldier under Solidus Snake (voiced by John Cygan). The last flashback trailer depicting Solidus killing a hostage, released on May 17th, ended with a binary code message "01000101 00110011" which translates to "E3", and the final trailer released during the ARG was a short clip of the title screen to the game's E3 2012 demo. The events in the videos were meant to hint at what would be shown in the story to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but these events would end up only being mentioned in an optional codec call between Raiden and Doktor about left arm data.

Two other recognized actors featured in the videos include an interrogator played by Noah Nelson, the voice of Cunningham from Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, and a surgeon played by James Horan, who would later voice Skull Face in Metal Gear Solid V.

There are Warp Pipes that can be found within the game's first and fourth chapters that strikingly resemble the Warp Pipes from the Mario series. Upon entering either Pipe, there will be a secret room with three more Warp Pipes along with 8-bit music playing in the background, which resembles the Warp Zone from World 1-2 in Super Mario Bros. Upon entering any of the three Pipes, they will warp the player to certain chapters within the game. Furthermore, finding all six buttons within the first chapter without the use of cheat codes will reveal a rainbow bridge that resembles the Rainbow Road track from the Mario Kart series that leads to a blue Warp Pipe, which takes the player to the secret room.

The second Warp Pipe is inaccessible in the PC version due to the switch used to access it not working; whether or not this inaccessibility was an intentional choice by the developers or a glitch is unknown.

Jann Lee's ending contains references to two Bruce Lee films. The first reference, in the scene where one of the club customers stubs his cigar out on the table, is similar to a scene from the 1972 film Way of the Dragon. The second reference, when one fighter attacks Jann Lee with a nunchaku only to have him take it from him and demonstrate far greater skill with the weapon, this is similar to the dungeon scene from the 1973 film Enter the Dragon.

Mega Man X
Attachment
Contrary to popular belief that Vile's character design was inspired by bounty hunter Boba Fett from the Star Wars franchise, and that his Japanese name VAVA (ヴァヴァ) was changed to Vile for the international release out of fear of a lawsuit from LucasFilms due to the letters "B" and "V" sometimes being used interchangeably in Japanese causing the name to appear too similar to "Boba", Capcom character designer TOM-PON stated in a 2012 interview that VAVA's design was actually inspired by the character Bubba Zanetti (ババ・ザネッティ, transliterated as Baba Zanetti) from the 1979 film "Mad Max".

In Mega Man X8, Vile's primary color scheme was intentionally changed from purple to green to more closely resemble Boba Fett in reference to their similarities.

Um Jammer Lammy
Attachment
In the opening cutscene to Stage 1, the excuse Lammy comes up with while running backstage is an exact description of the setup to the Stage 5 song "Full Tank" from PaRappa the Rapper, ending on a cameo by the teachers from that game and reusing voice clips of them saying "Let's rap for it!!" from Full Tank's opening cutscene:

Lammy: "What should I tell them?? I had a stomachache so I went to the bathroom......but there was a long line at the gas station......I told them it was an emergency......but they said: "LET'S RAP FOR IT!!!". ... Nahhh...."

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
In the Novigrad, the side quest "A Feast for Crows" is a reference to the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R. R. Martin, both in that the name of the side quest is directly lifted from the fourth book in the series, and that it references events from the first book "A Game of Thrones". In the small isle of Kaer Almhult, one of the sky cells has a dead dwarf inside as a reference to when Tyrion Lannister was imprisoned inside the Eyrie's sky cell by Lysa Arryn. Geralt will say upon examining the body: "Sky cells... Nice idea for a prison without bars. Shame he didn't know how to fly".
