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

* One episode of ''Series/NUMB3RS'' is an homage to Franchise/ScoobyDoo. An abandoned Air Force base is thought by local {{Conspiracy Theorist}}s to be hosting [[FlyingSaucer UFOs]] or the ghosts of WorldWarII veterans, and when they catch video of [[EnergyWeapon balls of energy]] raining down from the sky and killing a person the FBI gets involved. It starts to look like an Area 51-type GovernmentConspiracy (the [[CloudCuckooLander strange]] [[TheMenInBlack "Department 44" agent]] who tags along doesn't help in that regard—though he's surprisingly helpful with the investigation) until it's discovered that the energy was from a LightningGun a tech company was working on for the government (the UFO lights people saw were actually from the drone carrying it). The ray was only meant to work like an EMP, and the project's engineers were conducting secret tests to try to make it nonlethal.

** Another notable episode features an uncannily spot-on parody of ''SamuraiJack''.

* ''Anime/{{K}}'' has a serious one, to ''Anime/CodeGeass'' - ''major spoilers for both''.
** [[spoiler: The King is killed by someone who was something of an [[FoeRomanceSubtext enemy and love]] to them, who doesn't want to have to do it. The pose is the same. His last words are heard by a young girl with some degree of psychic ability, who succeeds him. The SwordOfDamocles is no longer a threat. The King's FieryRedhead subordinate didn't realize what was going on until it was too late. The King's closest supporter and companion has accepted this fate and says the final words of the series thanking the King. Top with brilliant, TearJerker music.]]

** The Culprit silhouette from ''Anime/DetectiveConan'' shows up in the same episode. TMoHS is fairly ReferenceOverdosed.

* ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'' has two episodes in its second season devoted to these. One is a perfect homage to ''Anime/SpeedRacer'', and the final one of the season was one to ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' was heavily influenced by ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', which director Hidetaka Miyazaki is an admitted big fan of. The Greatsword looks very similar to Guts' Dragonslayer, Knight Artorias looks and fights like Guts wearing the Berserker armor, there's a blacksmith named Rickert, several enemies and bosses have armor and weapon designs lifted straight out of the manga, and the overall theme and tone of the game is similar to that of ''Berserk'': being a dark fantasy with themes revolving around struggling against fate, no matter how inevitable it seems. Some code examination even reveals that one of the bosses, Ornstein, is nicknamed "Griffith" in the game's files (though the two characters have very little in common overall).
