* In ''FanFic/ImperfectMetamorphosis'''s side story, ''IM: Rhapsody of Subconscious Desire'', Kaguya, Mokou [[spoiler:and Ex-Rumia]] are trapped into DreamLand and meet [[spoiler:[[{{Starcraft}} The Zerg]]]]. Not a cross-over, because it's only a one-shot scene, and these things are directly coming from Kaguya's memories.

* As a MerchandiseDriven franchise with legions of rabid ''adult'' fans with long memories, ''{{Transformers}}'' tends to feature quite a lot of homages, to itself or to others, even in its toys (never mind in its plot-driven media). A simple example is when one toy is rereleased with a new paint job to look like something else (e.g., the mold for ''RevengeOfTheFallen'' toy Ransack, who turns into a biplane, got a repaint into a robot named Divebomb...using the Red Baron's colors -- it's particularly noteworthy that an early FanNickname for Ransack was Baron Ransack von Joy). Alternatively, given the number of names that are re-used, a character that has the name of a character from a different iteration of the franchise as a namesake might have design touches meant to emulate the older character. ''RevengeOfTheFallen'' Bludgeon has two toys; one which is a repaint of an older mold, and another that is [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Image:ROTFtoy-BludgeonVoyager.jpg a screaming homage]] to [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Bludgeon_%28G1%29 a G1 character of the same name]].

* The ''TransformersAnimated'' episode ''Decepticon Air'' is an Homage to both ''Film/ConAir'' and the first ''Film/DieHard'' movie, complete with [[spoiler:Optimus using the explosives down the elevator shaft and the "air vent rant" scene]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' does this a few times. The episode "Boogie Frights" contains an extended sequence based on the Death Star run in the original ''Film/StarWars''. The episode "I See a Funny Cartoon in Your Future" was done in the style of ''RockyAndBullwinkle''. "Meet the Beat-Alls" pays homage to several Beatles films (in particular ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' and ''Film/LetItBe'') as well as the older Beatles cartoons.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' has the episode "200" which little more than a series of homages to Franchise/StarTrek, TheWizardOfOz, and ''Series/MagnumPI'' among others along with references to more. It should be noted that one of the producers, Brad Wright's portrayal of Spoof!Scotty was so spot on, his own parents didn't realize it was him.

** The sidequest "Those!", which involves exterminating a nest of giant fire-breathing ants, is directly based on the 1954 B-movie ''Them!'', which was also the basis for ''VideoGame/ItCameFromTheDesert''. ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' also has an ant extermination mission, although these ants don't spit fire.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "The Return of Harmony, Part 2" ends with an almost shot-to-shot homage to the ending of ''Franchise/StarWars: ANewHope''.

** "Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000" has a musical number that homages "Trouble in River City" from ''TheMusicMan'', right down to the crowd chanting "Cider! Cider! Cider!" like the original song's "Trouble! Trouble! Trouble!"

* ''VideoGame/LaMulana'' is one big {{homage}} to classic {{MSX}} games, particularly {{Creator/Konami}}'s MSX games, the entire library of which appears as collectible items. The gameplay is principally based on ''MazeOfGalious'' (with a secret NostalgiaLevel based on it) and ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaI'' (which is referenced in all the ways to upgrade Lemeza's [[WhipItGood whip]]).

* ''{{Madworld}}'' is an obvious homage to ''SinCity'' and the ultra-violent black-and-white independent comics of the 80s which influenced it.

* The "Connecticut" house set of ''WhosTheBoss'' was made to strongly resemble the Connecticut house in the last season of ''ILoveLucy'', with only those changes that might have reasonably been made to a real house between 1959 and the mid-1980s.
