--->"[[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Who am I going to call?]]"
** A possible one to Film/ForAFewDollarsMore: Death's hourglass running out as New Death bears down on him, only for Miss Flitworth to give up some of her time to give him a chance, is strongly reminiscent of The Man With No Name bringing the second musical pocketwatch into the duel between Mortimer and Indio.
** Death's battle with his replacement is reminiscent of the showdown in Film/HighNoon, with the combatants facing off and then the protagonist fleeing through the village as he tries to gain an advantage, except it takes place at the ''other'' twelve o'clock.
** The wizards fighting the shopping trolleys sequence has a few to ''Alien'', which Pratchett is fond of referencing in other works as well.

* JokerImmunity: wizard Windle Poons comes back from the dead as a Zombie and is absolutely bloody furious with the mugger who stabs him in the heart, because that bloody knife has just torn a hole in a perfectly good robe, and ruined it!

** The New Death's appearance and some of his dialogue is based on the Witch-King of Angmar from ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' (who proclaimed to Gandalf that he was "Death Himself"). Then again, [[OlderThanTheyThink the Witch-King has a certain resemblance to the personification of Death in]] ''Literature/ParadiseLost''.

* UnfortunateName: Implied to have been the case (and how!) for One-Man-Bucket's twin brother.brother. One-Man-Bucket's culture named children after what their mother saw looking out the window after they were born. His full name is, "One-Man-Pouring-A-Bucket-Of-Water-Over-Two-Dogs," and he says that his twin was unlucky, as he was born first and named after what the dogs had been doing a moment before. Windle mentions it must have been rough being named "Two-Dogs-Fighting."
--> "Two-Dogs-Fighting? Two-Dogs-''Fighting?'' Wow, he would have given his right arm to be called Two-Dogs-''Fighting''."
