** Discord himself is a big one to [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Q]]. This was the case even ''before'' they got Q's actual actor to take up the role (they originally intended to use a sound-a-like) and LaurenFaust admits she created him after a Franchise/StarTrek ArchiveBinge.

* In "Shitagi Nashi ...", the first-season finale of ''[[DontTrustTheBInApartment23 Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23]]'', June shows Chloe a comic strip she supposedly drew (complete with MarySue versions of herself and a friend) in high school that seems like an homage to ''WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad''.

Added DiffLines:

* Being a TimeTravel show, ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' occasionally takes the opportunity to pay homage to classic films and TV:

** "Shogun" pays homage to the films of Creator/AkiraKurosawa.
** The ColdOpen of "Compromised" pays a brief homage to ''Series/MiamiVice''.

** The entire work is an homage to ''[[Literature/ArabianNights The Book of the Thousand and One Nights]]'', which is the story's structural model.
** The dodgeball match is largely an homage to ''Literature/TheIliad''.

** Dawn enchanting the necklace is homage to the GilbertAndSullivan operetta, ''Theatre/TheSorcerer''. Dawn essentially acts out the titular sorcerer's part of the [[RitualMagic Incantation Scene]].

->''"I was also reminded of ''{{VideoGame/Paper Mario|64}}''. You have NPC party members who aid you in the turn-based battles, like in Paper Mario. They have special abilities which allow you to bypass specific obstacles in the overworld, just like in Paper Mario. You can do more damage or defend in battle by [[ActionCommands timed button presses]], just like Paper Mario. And it takes the piss out of other indie games a lot, just like--come to think of it, it's exactly like Paper Mario."''

* ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' is full of these, mainly references to ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and other HumongousMecha series for the [[ParentalBonus older audience]]. Examples include Keroro being loaded into a suit a la ''Anime/MazingerZ'' ("Pilder on!"), the use of the phrase "Sieg Keron!" (a nod to the phrase "Sieg Zeon!"), and an extended scene where Keroro does his impression of Char Aznable to impress visiting cadet Taruru (the dub even cites the episode they're spoofing: "To appreciate the next minute or so, watch Mobile Suit Gundam episode 12: 'The Threat of Zeon'"). Other, mainly older anime and manga series are paid homage to as well. A ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' homage exploited the fact one of its characters shares the look and [[ActorAllusion voice actor]] of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Kaworu Nagisa]]. They [[LampshadeHanging hang a lampshade]] on their use of this in episode 24, where after the frogs and Kogoro disappear in the middle of a send-up of ''Franchise/KamenRider'', the following dialogue occurs:

** The now-iconic "rolling boulder" sequence at the beginning of ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' was, according to GeorgeLucas, an homage to a similar scene in the Creator/CarlBarks comic book ''The Seven Cities of Cibola''.
