* The first Live-action ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' film had a scene where Jazz speeds towards Brawl, times his transformation so he lands on Brawl, and starts bending Brawl's tankmode's cannon so he cannot shoot. It's almost a shot-to-shot replica of Kup doing the same to Blitzwing in ''Film/TheTransformersTheMovie''.

*** The [[Wiki/TFWikiDotNet Transformers Wiki]] has a "Transformers References" section for every episode or issue. Much of it is simply "Starscream mentions last issue's events" but you'd be surprised how many sly homages there are. After all, it's a franchise that's been going across ''multiple'' media with ''several'' countries producing original fiction almost continuously since 1984, and everything, however obscure, is some fan's favorite and some author's favorite, and some of the creators just like throwing in obscure homages for fun. The result is ''every single member of any crowd scene'' in TransformersAnimated being a past character, though it may be as obscure as "That off-white Bumblebee repaint sold briefly and only in Brazil." (Aka Sedan.)
