* TheVerse: The critical technologies and themes of another work Creator/ShirowMasamune worked on, ''Anime/RealDrive'', are near-identical to the critical technologies and themes of ''Stand Alone Complex'' from prosthetic bodies, cyberbrains and the social benefits/disadvantages thereof, to Operator androids and radiation-scrubber technology. Likewise, the geographical map of the world shown in episode 25 of 2nd Gig and Proto's [[TheReveal reveal]] prove that the series shares the came continuity as ''Manga/{{Appleseed}}'', which takes place around 100 years further down the timeline.

* VFormationTeamShot: The opening for 2nd Gig subverts this by puting a unique spin on it. It shows Section 9 against a white background with Motoko in the center and the other members on either side, but everyone is lined up and spaced apart instead of standing in a proper V formation. Website/{{Pixiv}} even has a special tag for artworks that parody the 2nd Gig opening called "[[https://www.pixiv.net/search.php?s_mode=s_tag_full&word=%E6%94%BB%E6%AE%BB%E7%AB%8B%E3%81%A1 攻殻立ち]]" (Strike).
