* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' has this by default, being an AffectionateParody of the CthulhuMythos; however, more surprising are their repeated references to [[SanityMeter SAN points]] from ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu''. And that's on top of things like the [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Delorean]], the [[Film/MenInBlack neuralizer]] (and Creator/TommyLeeJones as Agent K), [[Creator/MontyPython unholy hand grenades]][[note]]Made explicit in the light novel, where Nyarko says King Arthur used them at Antioch and Mahiro says "That was Monty Python!"[[/note]], and [[Film/CastAway Wilson the volleyball]] showing up, as well as an episode where [[Film/MarsAttacks a song makes evil aliens' heads explode]].

** One
episode where [[Film/MarsAttacks in the second TV season has Nyarko remarking about aliens having unusual weaknesses, like country music (which is said over a song silhouette of ''Film/MarsAttacks''[='=] Martians); this turns out to be entirely prescient, as the MonsterOfTheWeek is defeated because Nyarko's pop music ringtone makes evil aliens' [[YourHeadAsplode their heads explode]].explode]].
