* Given that it is a series made to have a big appeal in the West, ''Anime/SpaceDandy'' is full of these: from ''WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'' ("Is that your final Dandy?") to a disco-dancing alien named "[[Film/SaturdayNightFever Tohn Jravolta]]", to Dandy and Scarlet bonding over their love of Creator/ChuckNorris films (including the ''WesternAnimation/ChuckNorrisKarateKommandos'' cartoon, obscure even in the West!).

* Matt Burnett said of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''[[note]]which he writes for[[/note]] that if you find yourself wondering if it just reference an anime, the answer is almost always "yes". Of note, a scene near the end of [[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E38TheTest "The Test"]] when Steven passes a trial set up for him by the Crystal Gems is reminiscent of the infamous "Congratulations" scene from the end of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Another scene where Pearl fights is near-identical to a fight that happens in ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena''.
