** One of the tracks for ''Decode'' is named "Franchise/WonderWoman". Not only did Creator/ZackSnyder admit that ''Decode'' was an influence for the Superman/Zod battle at the end of ''Film/ManOfSteel'', but in the Film/DCExtendedUniverse, Creator/YukoKaida (Moss) is the dub voice actress for Wonder Woman and Creator/KotonoMitsuishi (OVA!Birdy) narrated a trailer for ''Film/WonderWoman2017''.

** In-universe example: In one instance Fiona is caught by one of Rosso and Viola's henchmen, who comments that she's cute and will be a "real knocker in few years." Come the timeskip in Guardian Force, we see he was right on the money.
** Season 2 villain Hiltz is very much similar to [[Franchise/{{Naruto}} fellow Akatsuki member]] Sasori, an EvilRedhead who have a scorpion-like machine (or doll in Sasori's case) as a weapon. They even share [[Creator/{{TakahiroSakurai}} the same japanese voice actor]]!

* In the Japanese version of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', Kari's full name is "Yagami Hikari". In Japanese, "Hikari" translates into "light". [[Manga/DeathNote Let that sink in for a few moments]] and see if you can keep from envisioning her with a [[MemeticMutation JUST AS PLANNED]] expression.

** Remember the whole [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya "We're stuck in an endless recursion of time"]] thing? Said by Itsuki Koizumi, voiced by Creator/DaisukeOno? Cue Ono later voicing Battler in ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', also stuck in a GroundhogDayLoop, albeit this one not noticeable to...[[MindScrew part of]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext himself]].

* An early arc in the ''Manga/GetBackers'' anime had the Recoverery service of Ban and Ginji doing battle against transporter Kuroudo "Doctor Jackal" Akabane, voiced by Shannon [=McCormick=] in the dub. In the machinima ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', [=McCormick=] does the voice for Agent Washington, who happens to be codenamed Recovery One.

** In the ''Shippuden'' dub, Chiyo is voiced by Barbara Goodson. Her grandson, Sasori is voiced by JohnnyYongBosch. That's right, [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Rita Repulsa and Adam]] are doing role reversal (Goodson as one of the heroes, and Bosch as a villain).

* In an episode of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Lelouch goes to Ikebukuro and Jeremiah comes to kill him. Sounds fairly straightforward, until JohnnyYongBosch and Creator/CrispinFreeman got cast as [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} Izaya and Shizuo]], and all you can think about is whether Jeremiah is going to throw a vending machine at Lulu when he gets there. (For context, ''Durarara!!'' is set in Ikebukuro.)

** This is actually surprising to some people since JohnnyYongBosch had worked with Funimation a few times in the past.

* ''Anime/{{Gintama}}'', mixing this with BitingTheHandHumor, makes a joke in the middle of Season 2 that there would be a movie of it's Benizakura arc. A fake trailer was shown, and the characters joked in universe how Creator/{{Sunrise}} already has the track record of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam recutting]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam remaking]] their series into feature-length movies. After the first Gintama series ended, this is exactly what Sunrise would eventually do for the first Gintama movie.

* ''Manga/BirdyTheMighty'':
** In the original manga, after getting caught by Gomez trashing some robots, with the help of Tsuotmu, Birdy rattles off a ''Manga/SailorMoon''-esque speech (though the original manga does predate ''Sailor Moon''). In the OVA, Birdy was voiced by [[Creator/KotonoMitsuishi Sailor Moon's seiyuu herself]].
** [[spoiler: Shyamalan's death at the hands of Sayaka after the Ryunka complete possesses her]] is a lot more unintentionally hilarious to watch when you remember that their seiyuu, Creator/KenichiSuzumura and Creator/MaayaSakamoto, are now married, which also augments the NoYay undertones between those two characters
** In the OVA series, Birdy is followed by someone who turns out to be a talent scout, thinking she could be an IdolSinger. In ''Decode'', Birdy has a disguise as one.
** There's an episode in which a little girl who defends a boy from bullies at a refugee camp Tsutomu and his friends visit sparks a debate among the boys about whether it's humiliating to have to be saved by a girl. In ''Anime/HeatGuyJ,'' an earlier work by Kazuki Akane, two of the important men have the following exchange:
-->You have to be saved by a woman? That's so pathetic.
-->It's not every day you get saved by an angel.
** Yutaka Izubuchi served as the creature designer for the OVA adaptation. He would also serve as the creative producer for ''Decode''.

Added DiffLines:

** The meme "Get in the damn robot" is often used as a TakeThat towards Shinji's unwillingness to pilot EVA-01 (especially in the first few episodes of the series). Fast forward to 2017 with the [[CashCowFranchise latest spin-off]] ''[[OverlyLongTitle Legend Of The Piko Piko Middle School Students]]'' where not only Shinji ,but the rest of the cast refuses to get in the damn robots to play video games instead.

** Ash's first Pokemon League battle ever takes place over a pool of water, and at one point, he orders Krabby to dive into it. Come Gen III, Dive becomes an official move.
