RPG-icon-to-end-all-icons Cloud Strife is everywhere. From the original FF7 to Advent Children, Crisis Core and Dirge, and even in other spin-offs like Dissidia and Kingdom Hearts. Now he's on a live-action TV series - at least in the form of some cartoony poster in the background.
As seen in Battlestar Galactica's spin-off series, Caprica (which I've yet to watch btw - ooh, can't wait!), a familiar yet unmistakably-Cloudish figure appears as an Easter Egg. The pose is the same - the hair color, the asymmetric shoulder pad, the sword over the shoulder... and with a name like Storm, it doesn't take a Dr. Hojo to put two and two together and see it as a wink to the FF7 audience. (Storm... Cloud... Storm Cloud? Oy vey...)
Ah yes, gotta love Sundays - a chance to get some gaming culture fodder out in the open (screenshot from Joystiq):
