Klaatu Barada Nikto References

# In the MMORPG Ragnarok Online, a vengeful sprit can be found in the town of Nifleheim. One available conversation tree leads to the player choosing "Klaatu Barada Nikto" or "Klaatu Barada Necktie" in order to send his spirit to rest.

# Also in Ragnarok Online, an NPC in Niflheim states that, "To break a curse, tell Gort, 'Klaatu Barada... oh dear, I've forgotten the last word.'"
-- Klaatu barada nikto [Wikipedia]

"Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!" is the phrase used to stop Gort from "policing" everyone to death in the classic The Day the Earth Stood Still ... although I heard it first in Army of Darkness. As the Wikipedia article indicates, it's been used frequently since then ... from Star Wars to Alice Cooper to MMO's.
