Added DiffLines:

* PurpleProse: Lots and lots and lots, at least in the first batch of stories. The author got better as the series went along, but he started out being perhaps a ''tad'' more descriptive than he needed to be.
**"''Above the eightieth floor, an ornamental observation tower jutted up a full hundred and fifty feet more. The metal work of this was in place, but no masonry had been laid. Girders lifted a gigantic steel skeleton. The naked beams were a sinister forest. It was in this forest that Death prowled. Death was a man.''"

* LawyerFriendlyCameo:
** Doc Brass in ''ComicBook/{{Planetary}}''.
** Doc Caliban in the Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer novel "A Feast Unknown".
** Both Doc and John Sunlight make appearances in RogerZelazny's ''Roadmarks''.
** Though his pedigree is less obvious, the DC Comics villain Bane was conceived of as the evil Doc Savage.
** Doc, Monk and Ham all appear, un-named, in the original ''ComicBook/TheRocketeer'' mini-series. Doc, in fact, turns out to be the creator of the rocket-pack.



* ShoutOut: There have been many, many shoutouts to Doc over the years:
** An octogenarian Doc, (and nonagenarians Monk and Ham) all participate in the "Melee of the Millennium" in Philip Jose Farmer's ''Greatheart Silver''
** In the 1980's action movie parody ''Jake Speed'' the titular hero complains that Savage needs to retire and give younger heroes a chance.
** Saxton Hale of the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' side comics (featured as header picture to TestosteronePoisoning) is an AffectionateParody of Doc. He finds time between running his thriving multinational company Mann Co. and inventing products for the rugged adventurer to test them himself, treking the world seeking adventure and [[WalkingShirtlessScene new ways to lose his shirt.]].

** The ''Sexton Hale'' thing featured as header picture to TestosteronePoisoning also seems to fit here. "Sexton Hale" appears to be a parody comic invented for a computer game.
