Minor Easter eggs and references
- Xenogears is mentioned in Final Fantasy VII.
- Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean has the Magnus "Rare Action Figure" which depicts the KOS-MOS figure that came with the Japanese limited edition of Xenosaga Episode I. The Gnosis also appear as a boss fight and can be turned into a Magnus.
- In Baten Kaitos Origins, the Coliseum enemy named Arma Prototype M uses an attack titled "X-Bluster". This is a reference to KOS-MOS's X-Buster in both name and design.
- In Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, Xenoblade Chronicles X is referenced with a line mentioning both the Prone and Ganglion.
- The Monado appears in Nobody Saves the World on a wall together with other iconic video game swords such as the Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII or the Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda.
- In Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, a character portrayed by Shulk's voice actor Adam Howden says his iconic line "I'm really feeling it!". This was confirmed to be a Xenoblade reference.
- In the 2022 reboot of Saints Row, the Zohar appears in the Badlands South. Its appearance is based of a mix of all three Xeno sub-series.
- Terraria has a painting called Terra Blade Chronicles, referencing the name and title screen of Xenoblade Chronicles.
- Track 10 of Hi-Fi Rush features a reference to the slideshow format of Disc 2 of Xenogears. Much like Xenogears, this scene was implemented due to time constraints.
