* ''Film/{{Pandorum}}'' does this with ''TwelveThirteen''. Dennis Quaid even compares it to ''StarWars''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/HappyDeathDay'' is about a woman who is stuck reliving the same day over and over until she gets her life in order. At one point, she has a conversation with a friend in which she mentions that she's never seen any Bill Murry movies; ''Film/GroundhogDay'' is mentioned by name.

Added DiffLines:

* The Franchise/StarWarsLegends novel ''Scoundrels'', being a [[TheCaper heist story]], naturally takes inspiration from ''Film/OceansEleven''. There are a few nods to the latter scattered throughout, ranging from the blatant (the {{Caper Crew}}s both have eleven members) to the subtle (the vaults in both hold about one hundred sixty-three million dollars/[[WeWillSpendCreditsInTheFuture credits]]).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' is, [[MemeticMutation of course]], ''Literature/HoratioHornblower InSpace'' Several of the earlier books mention ships named for various of Hornblower's commands, and at one point, Honor is relaxing with a cup of hot cocoa and a Horatio Hornblower book. In a bit of an inversion, Harrington explicitly does ''not'' share Hornblower's love of coffee, unlike seemingly everyone else in the Royal Manticoran Navy.

* The ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' episode "Pawnee Goddesses" has Leslie engaging in a battle of the sexes between her girlscout group and Ron's boyscout group. At one point, to impress Ron's group, Leslie's friend Ann shows that a large fish she caught, and then admits to the camera that she bought the fish from a grocery store, and got the idea from an ''ILoveLucy'' episode. This alludes to an episode called "Deep Sea Fishing" that also had a battle of the sexes plot, but might also be a nod to Leslie and Ann having a similar dynamic as Lucy and Ethel.

* Writer PeterDavid called these his PinkBunnySlippers after an example of one of his ''IncredibleHulk'' comic book storylines. He realised that there are parallels between between his ''Incredible Hulk'' story line and this other movie, ''Film/RealGenius''. There are similar plot points, so he makes a reference to it that doesn't involve using any more of the pre-existing connection but just throws in this shot of pink bunny slippers (as worn by both the University President and Val Kilmer in the movie) to lampshade it to anyone else who might have also spotted the similarities.

* PeterDavid again: ''Comicbook/XFactor'' #240 is called "Run, Layla, Run" and features Layla Miller running to save someone, while her alterations to history mean that instead of seeing a single, immutable future, she sees multiple possible futures. Halfway through, she collides with [[Film/RunLolaRun Lola]], who is running in the opposite direction.

** GeorgeLucas likes ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars''. A lot. Burroughs' Mars has ''Jed''s (princes) and ''padwar''s (lieutenants), martian lions are called ''banthas'' and one species of evil insects is called ''Sith''.

* It's fairly obvious that the New Republic in ''[[Literature/TheEschatonSeries Singularity Sky]]'' by Creator/CharlesStross is basically 19th century Prussia IN SPACE! Less obvious is that the Republic's military leader's delusion that he is pregnant with an elephant was shared by a real Prussian field marshal (Gebhard von Blucher) during UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars.

* Creator/StephenFry's novel ''TheStarsTennisBalls'' (aka ''Revenge'') owes a lot to ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo''. In acknowledgement of this, the major characters have names that are anagrams of or puns on the names of their equivalents in the earlier novel.

* Brutha, the protagonist of ''Discworld/SmallGods'' is a beefy guy who has a PhotographicMemory and becomes the prophet of a CrystalDragonJesus religion. These are traits shared with Severian, the protagonist of ''BookOfTheNewSun'', and to this end, one character that Brutha encounters is named Severian. Incidentally, ''Discworld/SmallGods'' is sort of an unofficial sequel or prequel to Discworld/{{Pyramids}}, and in that book, one of the sections is titled "The Book of the New Son".
