The 1 RingThe Lord of the Rings, anybody?
We've got another post coming which covers references in books, as stated at the top :)
Also, under the Matrix references, is the achievementYou'll Be Right As Rain
This guide is just focusing on items :) I think it would be a neat idea to do a blog that focused on achievements that have references and I'll be sure to include the Matrix one then. I think I could also get a few done on NPCs, as well as one on player references.
Buckaroo Banzai - the jet car in Tanaris that drove through a wall of rock. In vanilla there were tire tracks in Shimmering Flats before the flood.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - four turtles and a rat in the Dalaran sewer.Final Fantasy VII - the flower girl Aerith Primrose in Dalaran
goonies - chester copperpot
A few additions:
Possibly Indalamar's New Holy Hand Grenade for Monty Python (and the Holy Grail)?Also two more from Diablo:- Wirt's Third Leg- Cow King's Hide
Thanks for the guide! I get a kick every time I see a reference in the game. Please do more, my favorite is Not an Ambi-Turner
"Commander" Nazrim Nazrin from A Tiny, Clever Commander is a reference to character from famous japanese shmups (a.k.a. vertical scrolling shooters/danmaku/STGs) series called Touhou Project. I would be glad, if you could add it in later post ^.^and awesome post btw xD
Typo: Under Lost Vikings it says Uldamann (shouldn't it be Uldaman?)No, I'm not that guy...just do a lot of editing in my school/work life.Also, awesome list! I learned a few things I had no idea about.
Starcraft 2 - Heart of the Swarm collectors edition pet Baneling
DO NOT forget he said items list. NPC's and other item references will be coming.It's fun to reminense, especially when I once owned many of these items. The NPC list is the one I'm excited about, incase I missed any.
What about the hozen language: "ook" mainly refering to bad language. Also Dook Ookem being a refference to Duke Nukem :)
Very neat list.

What about Mimiron and his creatrion: "Gaze upon its magnificence! Bask in its glorious... erm... glory! I present you with... V0-7TR-0N!" ?And the NPCs of Un'goro that looks like Mario and Luigi A musical reference: Floyd Pinkus
Yog-Saron is a reference to Yog-Sothoth, an Old Game from the Lovecraft's creation.
