* One of the most famous (and/or notorious) H-games ever made is ''Bible Black''. About a decade later, the same people produced an even more outrageous game called ''Starless''. Hang on a second... [[Music/KingCrimson Starless and Bible Black]]?

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has silhouettes of Marvel and DC heroes in its introduction chapter, and several locations are named after Star Wars planets. Most blatant would be the short, elderly mentor figure who lives in the Dagobah district!

* ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana'' has werewolves strike a Music/MichaelJackson pose when they heal themselves. If that's not enough, zombie enemies sometimes moonwalk.

** The Cassiopeia TimeMachine itself was named after a mysterious time traveller's turtle from the German fantasy novel ''Literature/{{Momo}}'' by Creator/MichaelEnde. In fact there are several western literature referenced in the manga. For instance, Negi found ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy A Wizard of Earthsea]]'' in a bookshop while he was looking for more novels with a mage hero.

* ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' is one of the most popular western cartoons in Japan. The original intro to the 1966 anime ''Manga/SallyTheWitch'' has Sally turn a hairbrush into a cat, who looks like Tom, and has him chase a mouse, who looks like Jerry, that was bothering her.

* The ''Anime/CodeGeass'' spin-off ''[[Manga/CodeGeassOzTheReflection Oz the Reflection]]'' has a number of references to ''Literature/TheWizardOfOz'', including the protagonist singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in the first chapter. But the real surprise comes late in the story, which introduces a mecha named "[[Literature/{{Wicked}} Elphaba]]".

* ''Anime/AngelBeats'': TK, who SpeaksInShoutOuts, occasionally references Western works as well as Japanese ([[Franchise/{{Terminator}} "I'll be back!"]]). The most obvious one comes near the end of the series, where he uses "Knockin' On Heaven's Door!" as a PreAsskickingOneLiner, and the rest of the cast {{Lampshades}} it: "That's a Creator/BobDylan song, right?" "Pretty appropriate for our situation, though!"

* ''[[{{Kikaider}} Android Kikaider]]'' begins with a retelling of ''Literature/{{Pinocchio}}''...and the references to that story don't end there. Indeed, one reference is specifically to Disney's version of the story: Kikaider's conscience circuit is known as ''Gemini''. (Get it?)
