Let me start this thread acknowledging the fact that most everything can be traced back to a predecessor. I won't get into what influenced the production design of BTILC, I am only going to focus on things post BTILC.

I will start by mentioning the obvious. Mortal Kombat, a game most of us love, was no doubt heavily influenced by BTILC.

Raiden = Thunder
Shang Tsung = Lopan (old man form)
Several arenas = BTILC locations.

Boon & Tobias took from multiple films ofcourse, but I wanted to throw some due credit at the impact Big Trouble had on one of my favorite games.

What games, film, pop culture do you see specific elements of BTILC in?

I know that BTLC shows up from time to time in different video games.

Most recently, World of Warcraft revealed an item called "The Six Demon Bag."

Wikipedia mentions that:

The name Lo Pan appears as an easter egg in the computer game Fallout 2, as an evil martial arts practitioner in San Francisco's Chinatown. Lo Pan is also the name of a sorceror in Master of Magic.

Also, as someone who worked on the recent street basketball game "AND 1 Streetball," I had to contribute somehow... so you'll find two of the trick moves called "Pork Chop Express" and "The Six Demon Bag."
