Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
In Vilemyr Inn, Ivarstead, you'll find a woman by the name of Temba Wide-Arm. Her name is a subtle reference to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode 'Darkmok', in which Picard and his crew encounter a race of aliens called the 'Tamaraians'. At one point, Picard is stuck on a planet's surface. He attempts to make a fire, but fails. A Tamarian named Dathon takes a branch from his own fire and throws it to Picard, saying "Temba, his arms wide", to make it clear the fire was a gift.

Fallout: New Vegas
Attachment
During the opening, you are shown inkblots in order to test your mental health. Fans thought that one of the inkblots looked like two bears high-fiving, but this was not an option in the game. A fan decided to make a mod for the game which made 'Two Bears High-Fiving' an option. Obsidian referenced the fan reaction and the mod by putting a character called 'Two-Bears-High-Fiving' in the game's Honest Hearts DLC.
