* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' franchise contains an alien called [[http://ben10.wikia.com/wiki/File:Waybig11.png Way Big]] who is a hundred feet tall, has a blank face with a crest on the top of his head, and can fire beams of cosmic energy by crossing his arm in front of him. [[Franchise/UltraSeries Sound familiar]]? ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' takes the homage [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120331215637/ben10/images/d/d0/UltimateWayBig.png even further]]. even the name of the species- To'kustar is a reference. Things get truly weird in Ben10Omniverse, with [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130318233643/ben10/images/c/ca/Waybad_female.jpg a mutated female To'kustar]] designed as an homage to, of all things, [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Scanty]].

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' was done as an episode of ''WackyRaces'', complete with an opening sequence based on that of ''Wacky Races'', and a narrator who was a sound-alike for the late Dave Willock, the narrator on the original show. Another episode was done as ''Anime/SpeedRacer''. Yet another was done is the style of ''ThePinkPanther'' cartoon series, complete with silent characters, jazz music, and [=DeeDee=] doing the panther's unique walk.

* According to WordOfGod, the general setting of the ''VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}'' games is a homage to Anime/{{Trigun}}.the cult anime series Anime/{{Trigun}}. Just like ''Trigun'', the ''Blazblue'' games primarily focus on a [[ButtMonkey rather comical]] spiky-haired man with a red BadassLongcoat and a worldwide reputation as TheDreaded, fighting off all kinds of people who are all after him for the ridiculously huge bounty the government has placed on his head.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Beach City Drift", The car race homages ''Manga/InitialD'', including [[=CGI=]] cars, anime speed lines, and Eurobeat-inspired music. Stevonnie and Kevin's cars greatly resemble those driven by that manga's protagonist and his first opponent, respectively.
