* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of several western celebrities including JimCarrey (Franky), Michael Jackson (Jango), and [[strike:possibly]] Eminem (Eneru). Emporio Invankov basically [[{{Expy}} just is]] [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Dr. Frank-N-Furter's]] [[EvilTwin Good Twin]].

* The ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' OVAs have a few ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' shoutouts in the form of plush versions of the characters. The TV series has an even more unexpected reference; the shopkeeper in episode 3 is a [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/1214334-little-witch-academia dead ringer for Chumlee]] from ''Series/PawnStars''.

** Unsurprising, considering this series was ''also'' made by Studio Trigger, who had previously made ''Kill la Kill'' (as mentioned above) and ''Panty & Stocking'' when they were part of Gainax. The references go beyond ''My Little Pony'', though: the story being set at a magical school in Britain and the MacGuffin in the first [=OVA=] being called the Sorcerous Stone are references to ''Literature/HarryPotter'', witches being disciplined as part of a parade are made to wear fake noses like the "witch" in ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', and Amanda in one scene is shown stealing valuables while dressed up like [[ComicBook/Catwoman Catwoman]].

** In ''Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket'', one episode involved Lupin and Jigen breaking into some sort of government building. Two of the secret passwords to open the door are Music/{{Beatles}} references. (Strangely, the English dub replaces these with ''Franchise/StarTrek'' references.)

* When you get to fighting the Big Red Dinosaur OG in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsBX'', attack him with Flit. He'll say something along the lines of "Mass-murder under the guise of revenge. I too was a rabid revenger like you, until Fate woke me up with a mere arrow to my knee."
