As for MHL and USB OTG, the Note 2 and S3 (I believe) are capable of it. But to get it working, you'll need something like the Samsung Smart Dock Multimedia Hub. Or some hub that allows USB + MHL + power connection. It's known that the S3 and Note 2 cannot power the MHL adapter on its own. Even with that, I'm not sure if you can plug another hub into it and still work with it. Though it'll be interesting to see.
WD Element requires external power supply for its internal controller, so there is no way around it.
For multimedia stuff, I actually have something coming my way for a test/review
I'm not sure yet how I'm going to integrate it with Note 2, but possibilities could be limitless with this little Android on a stick device: COZYSWAN MK809 II Dual-Core Android 4.1 Google TV Player w/ 8GB ROM / Wi-Fi / Bluetooth - Black - Worldwide Free Shipping - DX
