When a character from an existing media franchise makes a brief appearance in a video game, sometimes without even openly acknowledging their origins.
Graphical technique used in older games to simulate additional colors or transparency on low-resolution CRT displays and/or composite connections, with color-bleeding/blooming that blends together the dots/lines. However, the additional colors/transparency effects are lost on modern HD displays that lack the color-bleeding/blooming effect.

Side-scrolling games present the world as viewed perpendicular to the direction the characters are facing on screen. With a heavy focus on lateral movement, objectives are often met by moving from one end of a stage to the other.
