Well I've been playing through Etherstorm in AQW. And at least as far as I've gotten I've noticed that you can get a smoke monster armor. And there's a hidden hatch leading to an underground area. And in the water there's a big plug sticking out of the ground.

I wonder if the devs have been getting LOST lately?

In the Pencil Doodle area, the saloon is closed until drawn. and there's a sketchy sun above it. Get it? Closed until drawn/dawn, smart one.[:D]

The new bun rangers quest in aq represents a parody of Tommy, the Green ranger. And his dragonzord was appropiately named the "Dragonzard." The goldenrod monster is a tribute to Galdar. and lastly the ocarina item we get as a prize, is a tribute to tommy's dragon dagger flute and the Legend of zelda's ocarina.

Good job there :)

Could just be me, but in AQ's Flaming Undead War, if you look at the Flaming Undead Ninja's description, I sense a quote from/reference to a Daft Punk song...

Edit:
Here's the description:
quote:

DESCRIPTION
This Undead Ninja has been strengthened by Fire magic! It's now harder, better, faster, and stronger than before!


And here is the song I immediately thought of when I read the description...

More Edit:
Of course, the Flaming Skull miscs that are a reward from the war are a pretty obvious Ghost Rider reference, the description again tells it all.

quote:

DESCRIPTION
Flaming motorcycle and chains sold separately.


Actually the first one could also be a parody for the Bionic Woman tv series. Cause in the intro they do mention, we can rebuild her, faster, stronger, etc.~Dnw

I see Dnw. I didn't know that series so the song was what came to mind first. Gathering on it. -N

The rewards from the recent "A Journey Home" war in AdventureQuest appear to bring with it a pair of references. The new armour's description is a play on ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man", while the new weapon references the "jerkface, genius doctor" kind of cane, which would seem to be a tongue-in-cheek nod to Dr. House's cane in House.

In Epic Duel when fighting a Heavy Mechachillid they say "Two legs bad, Six Legs Good" which is a reference to Animal Farm by George Orwell.
They also say "YOU SHALL NOT PASS" which is a reference to Gandolf from Lord of the Rings.

Not sure if this was pointed out before, but here I go.

The Giant Tale in AdventureQuest Worlds has a Giant named Andre, which is a reference to a wrestler that was called Andre the Giant.

In gamehaven the boss is a plumber. And gameheven is video games. Mario is a plumber from video games.

In AdventureQuest, one of the pre-battle lines a leprechaun can say is "Oi! Get back here! I'll bite your legs off!". This is a reference to the infamous "Black Knight" scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

In AQ the weapon scurvy blade reads thus
When Life DIDN'T give Cap'n Rhubarb the limes that he needed for his journey, Cap'n didn't invent combustible anti-limes to burn down Life's house. Instead, he invented a blade that can drain the Vitamin C from your enemy!
the combustible anti-limes burning life's house down is a reference to portal 2 lemon grenades CEO Cave Johnson threatens "life" with

I'm not sure if this has been posted, but after some insight of DR who. I found out the angels from the AQ quest for buster the incomplete shard seem to be similar to crying angels from DR Who

AQW's got This spear which has more than a passing resemblance to the Lance of Longinus from Neon Genesis Evangelion.

The Ultraviolent Light spell in AQ happens to be a double-whammy. The name is based off of Douglas Adams' work, and the description (as well as the pop-up upon landing the stronger form of Dazzle) is a shout-out to Thomas Dolby's song "She Blinded Me With Science".




UnderSoul -> RE: =AE= Spotted a parody, spoof, or puns in our games? Post it here! (12/1/2012 0:10:58)

2 Doctor Who things

1) In AQ the Guardian Angels look like the Weeping Angels
2) DF has a Doctor When, do I even need to point that out?

Dragonfable:

In Falconreach, Lim has a quest called "Blackhole Fun!"
Sounds like a reference to Soundgarden's famous "Black Hole Sun" to me :)

Edit: In case you don't know it, here it is.

During the war wi ebil corp, my class made a poster(no connections) hat said 'Save our Planet Earth.' Unfortunately the s and v in save and the u in our was written in yellow and very hard to see. So it read AE OR PLANET EARTH. The first time I saw this I went crazy and thought it was a premonition or such. (Remember it was during the war with ebil corp)

quote:

Who would use sonic?
Puns intended. From the laser screwdriwer weapon on DF. Who would use sonic. And almost same thing was said by the "Master" in Dr. Who episode.




Galez -> RE: =AE= Spotted a parody, spoof, or puns in our games? Post it here! (12/18/2012 13:06:10)

im not sure if this is true but this guy kinda looks like sephiroth from final fantasy (only with black hair)




DanteR -> RE: =AE= Spotted a parody, spoof, or puns in our games? Post it here! (12/29/2012 0:00:26)

Maybe not inside the actual game, but in the old AQ3D game page the copyright reads, "Copyright Artix Entertainment 2012. All rights reserved. All wrongs revengenated.". Thought it was a bit "pun-ish".




sleddyboy3 -> RE: =AE= Spotted a parody, spoof, or puns in our games? Post it here! (1/3/2013 18:18:21)

If you haven't caught the reference, when AQ calls the gift boxes giftboxen, it's a reference to Brian Reagan's "Stupid in School" comedy.




Rafiq von den Vielen -> RE: =AE= Spotted a parody, spoof, or puns in our games? Post it here! (1/4/2013 6:47:16)

Genius. (at least I hope I'm remotely correct here)

AQ: The Anti-Guardian's real name is Ghin Surrech, which totally sounds like Insurrect to me. This is derived from the word Insurrection, meaning a revolt. Ghin revolts against Guardians.
Fun fact: I noticed this as I was experimenting with my MtG cards, because I was trying to make a deck with this very card.

Best name for an NPC. Ever.




Dragonnightwolf -> RE: =AE= Spotted a parody, spoof, or puns in our games? Post it here! (1/4/2013 15:48:00)

Here's a quick parody i just realized from the 2011 mechquest gear games cutscene.

Dean Warlic mentions girls just want to have fun, which is the title of a Cindy Lauper song from the 1980s.

Following that Jaania makes 2 different references to the human brain by stating dendrites and neurons.

Lastly, in that same cutscene, Casca makes a reference to the wizard of oz by mentioning flying monkies.
