The Arab Swordsman's brief scene is humorously referenced in the prequel ''[[Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom]]''. After Indy escapes the temple, two [[Thuggee]] swordsmen challenge him (even briefly showing off their skill with the sword much like the Arab Swordsman), and he smugly reaches for his gun. However, this time Indy can do nothing but smile sheepishly and fight them with his [[whip]] after he remembers that his gun was lost by [[Willie Scott]] earlier in the film during the [[Shanghai]] car chase. The music cue confirms the homage to ''Raiders of the Lost Ark'', despite the second film actually taking place [[1935|a year earlier]] to the first.<ref>''[[Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom]]''</ref>

In ''[[LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures]]'', the Arab Swordsman's role is the same as in the movie in that Indy finds and defeats him. This is shown in a cutscene, but in actual gameplay of the Cairo level the player can encounter multiple swordsmen. In the DS version of the game, however, the Arab Swordsman (depicted as an old man) is never shot by Indy and fights both Indy and Marion.<ref>''[[LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures]]''</ref>
