* {{Expy}}:
** Yuri has been called a "rip-off" of Haruhi Suzumiya by some pissed off fans of ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'', even though any resemblance between the two characters is ''entirely'' skin deep (though Yuri's initial appearance is at least bombastic enough to be on Haruhi's ''level.'') Some fan artist took note of this and [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/673173/angel_beats-banner-brown_eyes-brown_hair-crossover this piece of fan art]] was born. (WARNING: linked site is NSFW).
-->'''Comment on Picture:''' So Yuri finally gets to fight God.
** This serves as the driving force of a [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6149731/1/ crossover fanfiction between the two franchises.]]
** Takeyama looks exactly like [[VideoGame/{{Earthbound}} Jeff]]. Numerous other characters, such as Naoi, also have uncanny resemblances to those of other shows.
** Otonashi looks (and to some degree sounds) a lot like Light Yagami of ''Manga/DeathNote'', though the similarities between [[NiceGuy Otonashi]] and [[AxCrazy Light]] end there.
*** Actually, they have a little bit in common. Both are smart but disillusioned {{Broken Ace}}s who try to do something good and wind up making things worse, in Otonashi's case with [[spoiler: his sister]] and in Light's case with his "[[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans New World]]". Of course, Otonashi redeems himself. [[ProtagonistJourneyToVillain Light...]]
** Hinata looks suspiciously similar to [[Anime/{{Clannad}} Tomoya Okazaki]] and they even share the same voice actor in the English dub.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: In ''Track Zero'', Yuri and Hinata are in the headmaster's office with Chaa when Angel arrives, so they witness her killing him. Later, Yuri remarks on her inhuman speed. In the manga, she arrives there before them, so they only see her after the act is done, but Yuri still remarks on her speed.
