    • In Borderlands, there's a weapon called the Hyperion Butcher (Unique) which has a description of "Ah...Fresh meat!". This is a random quote from The Butcher when you encounter him.
    • In WarCraft III, there's a monster known as a butcher who also yells, "Fresh meat!". Behind him is a chest containing Wirt's Other Leg, which is a parody of Wirt's Leg from Diablo.
    • In Fallout 2, there's a slaver's guild with a character named Metzger (German for "butcher"). When you enter the guild, you're greeted with the words, "Ah, fresh meat...".
