In case you were wondering

This here's the 1,000th page. -- Tom 15:48, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

Tom, you're a step ahead of me. I came here to make a similar note. I'm not sure I ever imagined we'd reach a thousand articles back when I started this wiki. Good jorb, everyone! — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 21:19, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

Actually, this isn't the thousandth page. A few pages that were created before this one have since been deleted, making Fonts the official thousandth article. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 18:16, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

Sorry, but yeah it is. See my comment at Talk:Fonts#Thousandth article for clarification. I'm also going to remove the strike-though that was added to my comment above, since I didn't retract it or anything like that. -- Tom 19:41, 18 May 2005 (UTC)

Albino Blacksheep

In a new Flash game on albinoblacksheep.com, parodying Everquest, one of the characters has a "Summoning" ability which can be used to summon Trogdor the Burninator. I'm not sure, however, if this should go under Games or Animation...

Well it's a game, so it should go under games. Makes sense to me. --phlip TC 00:46, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Kay then. I will. thanks.



Ok, not sure if this counts as a good enough sighting or not, but in World of Warcraft there is possible another sighting, in the Barrens there is an Ogre called Jorb. Do you think this counts? - P

Delete Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas?

Driving around Las Venturas, one can find a "Bub's Hardware." The sign also seems to say something about "Cheats." A map is included here.

  • This seems like a stretch. All the other examples are clear references, or at least very likely to be, but this one could easily be pure coincidence. Anybody else think it should be deleted? — Bill 21:59, 6 December 2005 (UTC)
I noticed this a while ago, too. I'm pretty sure it's a total stretch. Bub and Cheat are common words. It's not even "Bubs", it's "Bub". - Joshua

Warcraft III reference

there's a reference of trogdor in WCIII:TFT. can we add it?

Do you have the details of the sighting? If possible, Can someone confirm? --Stux 06:18, 15 December 2005 (UTC)


I wrote that, Its in level three one of the guards is called trogdor--Ed500 08:30, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

heres the picture

trogdar.jpg

does it count?

It is only one letter off (a/o), and too much of a coincidence if one, so I think it does. -Zyborg

Xgen reference

theres a TGS reference when you play stick arena

(username) iron chef'd (username)

can it count?--Ed500 07:06, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

Probably, if it isn't a player. If it is a CPU, then I would think so. -Zyborg

American Wasteland Squad!

Okay, is this a real sighting? Either the producers of the game were obsessed with TGS, TBC helped design the game, or the entry is bogus. Can some one help me out? -Marth 99 22:33, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

I have no way of proving it for you, but it doesn't sound too unlikely to me. Mostly because of the "Late 360" etc., which was a skateboarding allusion to begin with. And the sightings in the other Tony Hawk game above add credibility. —AbdiViklas 22:39, 3 January 2006 (UTC)
I actually have the game myself, so I should probably play it and see for myself before complaining. (Side note: I actually noticed the Limozeen sighting in THUG 1, but i thought it coincidence. -Marth 99 22:41, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Vampire the Masquerade:Bloodlines

When buying fuel for the flame thrower, the fuel is called "Burninator brand".-Hitokiri Akins


Kingdom Hearts II

In Kingdom Hearts II, when fighting the Hydra, there is a reaction command called Urninator. This is only one letter off from Burninator. Think I should add it? - Zyborg 4/13/06 (Edit: The strategy guide said Everybody to the Limit, not the manual. Although, the strategy guide is most likely official. I'll add the Urninator to the page, delete if necessary.)

I checked Amazon for strategy guides for Kingdom Hearts II. I found out that the guide is made by BradyGames, not Square Enix(the company that makes KH2). The Everybody to the Limit reference in the strategy guide should really go under books instead.

Though I think the Urninator reference might be legit. The Hydra is a dragon, just like ol' Troggie.

Other Sightings, then. We don't have a "books" section. Maybe magazines? --DorianGray

Killer7

  • I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is NOT a reference; seeing as Gouichi Suda has an obsession with lucha libre in general, it's not surprising that Yoon-Hyun's mask looks like Strong Bad's. It's a coincidence. Danny Lilithborne 07:52, 17 July 2006 (UTC)
