    • In addition, Leon was initially an ally to the players until he ended up captured and brainwashed into becoming a dark-armored enforcer for the Empire and capable of controlling people via magic, and was also a blood relative to one of the protagonists (in this case, the brother of Maria), and eventually defects to their side and takes down the Emperor, similar to Darth Vader.

There are quests entitled "It's a Trap" and "I've Got a Bad Feeling." A "Light Saber" with a blue blade is also an available weapon.
  • In Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, the character Genesis Rhapsodos wields a sword that looks strikingly similar to a lightsaber.

  • During the second act of the first level, the characters complain to a witch about having to gather ingredients for a teleportation spell.

Spider-Man 3Edit

Spider-Man: Shattered DimensionsEdit

  • During the Sandman level, Spider-Man says "Did I ever mention I hate sand? It's hot, it's course, it's rough, and it gets everywhere." This is the same quote Anakin Skywalker said to Padmé in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.


  • In the space stage, one of the achievements that can be unlocked is Quietus Star. It is gained by destroying 20 planets with the Planet Buster weapon. Quietus means, in latin, At rest, and can be interpreted as "Death".

  • In Starfox and the 1993 comic (And to a far lesser extent, the sequels), Andross is referred to as emperor and the enemy forces are sometimes called Imperial Lizards. Quite possibly referencing Star Wars's fight against the evil Empire.
  • The Arwing (pronounced "R-wing") and Wolfen are incredibly similar to the many starfighters of Star Wars such as the X-wing.
  • The constant use by Peppy and James of the phrase "trust your instincts" is likely a reference to the line "Trust your feelings" and derivatives of.
  • The roles and personalities of the main characters can be quite closely compared with original trilogy characters: Fox (Luke), Peppy (Obi-Wan), Slippy (C-3PO), Falco (Han) and Rob (C-3PO/R2-D2).
  • During the final battle with Andross, the main villain in Star Fox 64 (as well as the original Star Fox game and Star Fox Adventures), speaks the line "I've been waiting for you, Star Fox"; this is likely to be a reference to Darth Vader's line to Obi-Wan Kenobi just before their duel in Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope. The difference being that Vader's line was "I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan." Andross also says, at one point, "You will die just like your father!"; Darth Sidious taunted Galen Marek with similar words during their epic clash aboard the first Death Star in The Force Unleashed.
  • There is a character named Pigma Dengar in the game, who shares his name with Dengar, a bounty hunter. In addition, Pigma Dengar's backstory is also similar to that of Obi-Wan's rendition of Darth Vader's backstory in A New Hope, including betraying the group he worked with as well as being implied to have murdered the protagonist's father: In this case, however, Pigma and James McCloud are clearly separate individuals.
  • The opening music sounds very similar to the opening music from Star Wars, composed by John Williams.
  • One of Peppy's lines, "I have a bad feeling about this", is a line commonly used in all of the Star Wars movies. He also shouts "It's a trap!" in a similar tone to Admiral Ackbar.
  • The mission Bolse in Star Fox 64 is very similar to the Battle of Yavin, where Star Fox destroys energy towers in order to take out a satellite.
  • The ending sequence of Star Fox 64 is cinematically very similar to the ending of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. (An award ceremony thanking the heroes where troops stand at attention on the sides)
  • In Star Fox Assault, the Cornerian Fighters strongly resemble colorless V-Wing starfighters, as used in the Clone Wars.
  • The plot of Star Fox: Assault, involving a sudden overwhelming attack by an unknown alien race that uses organic technology, may be an homage to The New Jedi Order series of novels.
    • At one point in the game, the player has to destroy several missiles that were capable of travelling through a wormhole, and were likewise implied to be capable of destroying a planet ("Peppy: Listen to me, team. Don't waste a single shot. Something that gigantic will take out more than just the gate."), which is similar to Palpatine's usage of the Galaxy Gun to cow the New Republic-owned portions of the Galaxy in Dark Empire II.
  • In the Venom path hard ending when Andross causes the planet to self-destruct in order to kill Fox after his defeat, the spirit of Fox's late father James guides him away from the planet, with Fox remarking "Father?!" upon first hearing him. This is a reference to The Empire Strikes Back when Vader communicates mentally with Luke aboard the Millennium Falcon and he also responds similarly to Fox. 
  • Though this could be a more loose reference. In Star Fox Adventures, Falco, who previously departed from the team prior to the game, shows up at the end in order to help Fox defeat Andross. This could be similar to Han Solo returning to help Luke blow up the Death Star during the Rebel Assault afte previously departing with his payment.

  • Pit's dual bladed bow was based on Darth Maul's double-bladed lightsaber.

Tales seriesEdit

  • There are two characters in the "Tales of" series named Luke Fon Fabre (Tales of the Abyss) and Leia Rolando (Tales of Xillia). Luke (not unlike Luke Skywalker) is very whiny at the start of the game, but matures into a more ideal hero. Leia's last name (Rolando) has "Lando" in the name. This could be a nod to Lando Calrissian. A laser sword can also be obtained as a weapon in the tower of Salvation (Tales of Symphonia) that looks similar to a lightsaber. Hubert from Tales of Graces uses a dual blade sword and fights just like Darth Maul. (though when using his guns, he has moves similar to Dante from the Devil May Cry series). The world of Auldrant (the world where Tales of the Abyss takes place) sounds similar to Alderaan. Perhaps this is a nod to Princess Leia's homeworld.

The Urbz Sims in the City (Game Boy Advance and DS) Edit

  • When the player character gets into the bayou, several references to The Empire Strikes Back are seen. First by one of the twins who give you the objective to take care of an Albino Alligator and when the PC says "I'm not afraid", the twin will then respond "Oh you will be! You will be!" Later in the quest, when the PC goes into the cave, a hallucination of Daddy Bigbucks in a suit akin to Darth Vader's (minus the helmet) is seen and can be only fended off by a special light rod. Making the quest mostly reference Luke Skywalker's training with Yoda on Dagobah.

One of the first quests available in Tochley's Station is "Picking Up Some Power Converters". The quest rewards you with an item called a Power Converter, the description of which reads "Use: Destroys technological terror constructs" and "The next best thing to going to the Academy".

He worships the "Hose", which is a reference to the Force (although the Hose is just a literal hose, and near the end of Chapter 9 he even prompts "Use the Hose!" similar to Yoda's famous quote "Use the Force!"), and his Soultimate is named "The Hose", which shows up as a lighting discharge similar to Emperor Palpatine's attack on Luke.
    • In addition, there are three sidequests named "Nyada's Trials IV", "Nyada's Trials V", and "Nyada's Trials VI" (in which he quotes "May the Hose be with you", a striking reference to the famous line "May the Force be with you" and Whisper retorts with a similar explanation to the Force in Star Wars), which should be completed as part of Chapter 9 of the main story, which are a reference to the Original Trilogy of Star Wars.
      • Another set of sidequests named "Nyada's Trials I" (in which he even says to the player character "You are one with the Hose", another reference to Yoda's quotes, and at the end, he states "Could it be... could this be the one?" another quote reference, this time to Obi-Wan Kenobi. He also says a meta-example reference quote: "I forgot how serious some people are about spoilers"), "Nyada's Trials II", and "Nyada's Trials III" (at the end of which he quotes "You are a new hop-er, a new hero" in reference to Yoda and Luke, and shortly after he quotes "I see you still have much to learn in the way of manners" in reference to Yoda's exchange with Count Dooku, followed with "I see a disturbance in the Hose" clearly refering Yoda's quote about a Disturbance in the Force), which are references to the Prequel Trilogy, to which he meta-quotes, "These sorts of things are always trilogies".

Yo-kai Watch Busters Edit
