THE iDOLM@STER franchise has made several cameos in other games by Namco-Bandai, either through actual appearances or through their songs.

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation (XBOX 360)

The idols appear as paint schemes on downloadable aircraft from the Xbox Live Marketplace. Each plane has statistics that reflect on each idol's personality, in addition to being very eye-catching. The numbers of missiles in the aircraft are actually the height of the idol shown on the aircraft. Example : F-14D Azusa has 168 missiles, her height is 168 cm. The exception goes to A-10A iDOLM@STER SP. It has 765 missiles, it's actually the name of the protagonist's talent agency in THE iDOLM@STER, 765 Productions. The number of the aircraft's first three special weapons are actually the "three-sizes" (B-W-H) of the idol shown on the aircraft. If there is a fourth special weapon on the aircraft, it would be the idol's weight. Example : F-15E Chihaya has 72 XMA6, 55 UGB, 78 SFFS, and 41 XAGM. Her three-sizes are 72-55-78, and her weight is 41 kg. Again, the exception goes to A-10A Idolm@ster SP. It has 70 RCL, 60 FAEB, and 50 XAGM, 765 is the name of the talent agency, 765 Productions.

The planes are listed in the order that they were released in the Marketplace, as well as the amount of Microsoft Points required to download them.

Kuma Tomo (3DS)

Producer costume
Idol costume

Typing in certain words to talk to your bear will sometimes provide iDOLM@STER related reactions. This was officially revealed during THE IDOLM@STER 8th ANNIVERSARY HOP! STEP!! FESTIV@L!!!, where Kuma Tomo meet and greet promotional events were also held.

Later, preregistering for the iOS and Android versions would allow players to have a "Producer" and "Idol". The "Producer" outfit is based on the clothes Youzou Sakagami (AKA "GamiP") wears for public events. The "Idol" costume is based off of Haruka Amami's FLORAL costume, specifically her The☆Wild Strawberry.

Kuma Tomo would later appear in the "Cinderella Girls Theater" manga as a teddy bear from a crane game. The bear was eventually won by Yuzu Kitami and put on display in her room, but was largely ignored by Honoka Ayase in favor of her stuffed cat Pinyakorata.

The bear itself would make a later appearance as a DLC item for THE iDOLM@STER ONE FOR ALL. Kuma Tomo was a body accessory that acted as a pin.

The concert starred Haruka, Yukiho, and Chihaya performing THE iDOLM@STER, shiny smile, and GO MY WAY!!.
