** ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' is the subject of many new Discontinuity Nods, now that the franchise is in something of a revival and Creator/AkiraToriyama is supervising it more closely. The ''Xenoverse'' video games explicitly refer to it as a sort splinter timeline caused by Trunks' time machine shenanigans, and the much-beloved Future Trunks has a lot to say about his counterpart's methods, although he does come come around.

** Notably, the opening of the new ''Battle of Gods'' movie depicts JokeVillain Pilaf and his two minions, Shu and Mai, as having wished themselves back to elementary school-age. The main plot hook of ''GT'' was an aged Pilaf accidentally wishing ''Goku'' back to a child.

* When ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' got a full-color reprint of the manga, Akira Toriyama wrote a number of new articles [[WorldBuilding expanding on the setting]] or answering long-standing questions. One article discussing Dr. Gero's Androids mentions that #13, #14, and #15 are nearly complete but not yet ready to be activated; this is a nod to the NonSerialMovie ''Anime/SuperAndroid13'', where those three Androids (designed by Toriyama himself) were completed by Gero's supercomputer after his death at the hands of a rebellious #17.

*** Just to make things ambiguous, "Hell Bent" treats the half-human theory as a legitimate possibility for the first time in years, although the Doctor (characteristically) confirms nothing.

A Discontinuity Nod is a ContinuityNod that is made towards something that has been written out of canon, people [[FanonDiscontinuity want to be written out]] of canon, or even [[ContinuityReboot an entire old Continuity]] that is no longer canon. May be a sign of CanonDiscontinuity, a callback to something a lot of people miss, or just making a joke at the fanbase's widespread hatred. WhoWritesThisCrap

* ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' masterfully combines this with a TakeThat, by having the [[OvershadowedByAwesome Jamming Birds]] fail because they used music from ''Anime/MacrossII''.

** A central idea of the proposed post-TV Movie storyline, was a retooling of the Master into being the Doctor's long lost brother. This is referenced thus in the [[DoctorWhoS29E12TheSoundOfDrums "The Sound Of Drums"]]:

** "The Magician's Apprentice"/"The Witch's Familiar" makes a point of using every Dalek type from the Classic series, New series and a few more besides, but the [[SpecialEffectsFailure reviled]] 'New Paradigm' Dalek design pointedly makes no appearance. In fact, blogger Dalek6388 wryly observed that the "The Daleks"-style corridors are deliberately designed such that the 'fat' New Paradigm Daleks wouldn't be able to get through them.
