* ShoutOut: Many. For example, Tank's black leather battledress with [[ShouldersOfDoom enormous epaulettes]] in ''The Royal Escape'' owes a pretty clear debt to ''Comicbook/JudgeDredd''.

** The title of ''Two Girls One Tank'' is, of course, a reference to the notorious ShockSite video "2 Girls 1 Cup".

Tank Girl is a bizarre British indie comic created by Alan Martin and drawn by Jamie Hewlett (of Music/{{Gorillaz}} fame) about a cheerfully sociopathic young woman who lives in a [[TankGoodness tank]], her mutant kangaroo boyfriend Booga, her various bizarre and violent buddies, and knob jokes. Set in the Australian outback, most of its stories pay no attention to reality, the laws of physics, good taste, bad taste, yucky taste or conventional storytelling.

''Tank Girl'' started as a comic strip in the British magazine ''Deadline''. It was made into [[Film/TankGirl a movie]] in 1995 starring Lori Petty (The voice of [[SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Livewire]]) and also featuring Naomi Watts, Creator/MalcolmMcDowell, and Music/IceT. Unfortunately the movie flopped and was considered by the creators to be a bad adaptation, causing Martin to quit in disgust. The financial failure also caused the collapse of ''Deadline''.

And please, for the love of any God you believe, [[IThoughtItMeant don't confuse this with]] Anime/GirlsUndPanzer or ComicBook/TankVixens for that matter.
