** The 400th issue homaged the subscription ad at the back of the first issue of ''Doctor Who Weekly'', showing Creator/TomBaker reading that very issue. The [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/staticarchive/135c8d86f49d357a489dfc56f43defeef036ae3e.jpg new image]] showed Creator/DavidTennant reading #1 and, with the magic of image manipulation, Baker reading #400.
** Similarly, the [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CjNp-aIWEAA14E5.jpg cover]] of the 500th issue was an exact duplicate of [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/31/Doctor_Who_Weekly_1.jpg the cover]] of that first issue, with Creator/PeterCapaldi replacing Creator/TomBaker, and a modern Dalek.

* ''GrangeHill'' opened its 26th season with a new batch of first year students...who all bore vague similarities to the first year students of its very 1st season, including their names and general behavior. Plotlines and characterizations diverged significantly after that first episode, however.

A subtrope of MythologyGag. {{Bookends}} (and by extension, HereWeGoAgain) are a manifestation of Internal Homage. [[{{Expy}} Expies]], especially of the GenerationXerox variety can be used to this end as well. {{Continuity Reboot}}s and otherwise alternate-continuity stories will often use Internal Homages to appease fans of the franchise's past. Extreme cases do this OnceAnEpisode.

** The bat/spider monster homage is seen ''many'' times. Now, ''most'' monsters in the franchise are animal based so there's nothing special about many instances of a bat and/or a spider being ''somewhere.'' However, ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' has a bunch of spider monsters as the first threat Black faces, followed by the debut of a bat monster who will serve as a spy, air support, and general go-fer for the bad guys almost all year. ''Film/KamenRiderZO'' has Doras send two pieces of itself as monsters to halt the hero. Naturally, one is a bat and one is a spider. Doras itself falls into the old-school-rider-like villain category. ''Kuuga'': see above. ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' has a spider as the first monster; the bat is the second if we can count Kamen Rider Knight's BondCreature. ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'', using ''Ryuki'' footage, has it even better: in addition to this, you've got one hero an UnluckyEverydude in red with a black version of his suit representing (at least initially) his temptation toward darkness, and another who's bat themed and scary even to the people he protects and flashbacks show him as a loner who fights at night. [[Franchise/SpiderMan Any of this]] [[Franchise/{{Batman}} sound familiar]]? ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' has a spider as the first enemy (becomes a recurring nuisance enemy) and a bat as the ''last'' enemy (what else would the BigBad of a race of vampire-like enemies turn into?) ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' starts the tradition of cute little robotic helper gadgets; the first are a bat (turns into a camera) and a spider (used as a grappling… thing.) Even better, a prequel movie shows Kamen Rider Skull, Shotaro's mentor, becoming a Rider for the first time. He fights an actual Spider and Bat Dopant, meaning if we go by in-universe chronology, the first villains in ''Double'' were indeed a bat and a spider.
* Any time a SuperSentai team destroys a monster by kicking a sphere at it, it's a sure nod to the [[HimitsuSentaiGoranger Goranger Storm.]]

* ''ThunderForce VI'', being a tribute to the series, has this in spades. One of the unlockable ships is an updated version of the Rynex from ''Thunder Force IV'', and one of its weapons is the Blade, also from TFIV. Stage 2 borrows many elements from ''Thunder Force III''[='=]s 2nd stage, even going so far as to have a 1-up in a very similar fireball obstacle. For Stage 5's boss, depending on what ship you're using, the music will be a remix of either Cool's theme from ''Segagaga'' or the Cerberus's theme from ''Thunder Force III''. Right after that boss, you fight [[GiantMook giant]] versions of the player ships of past ''Thunder Force'' games, which comes with even more remixes. Finally, the first part of the last stage has the same box obstacles from ''Thunder Force V''. There's so many references to past ''Thunder Force'' games that many believe that this game pushes them [[TropesAreNotGood a little too far]].
* SamAndMax drive to the Moon in their [=DeSoto=] in all iterations, though how they accomplish it each time changes due to the different natures of the continuities. In the comics, they fill the tailpipe with matchheads, which somehow gets them to the moon. In the cartoon, they effectively rocket jump to the moon with their car. In the game, they simply drive offscreen and reappear on the moon.

* ''VideoGame/RidgeRacer'' has the tracks plastered with homages to previous games by Namco. ''Type 4'', to begin with, has a Pac-Man animation on the starting line's big screen and ''Pac-Man World'' sculptures on one track, as well as ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}: Door to Phantomile'' ads on the track called Phantomile. The fifth game, meanwhile, has the logos of the megacorporations from ''AceCombat 3: Electrosphere'' out there.

* In its sequel spin-off ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', the ending to GrandFinale is a major homage to the original's ending. [[spoiler: [[BiTheWay Korra and Asami]] stare longingly at each other while holding hands while music swells in the background right before the camera swoops up to The End in Chinese.

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' is forever homaging lines from the 1980s animated movie. "One shall stand, one shall fall" is popular. We get that one (at least in part) and more in ''Anime/TransformersCybertron,'' with "Why throw away your life so recklessly?" and "Such heroic nonsense!" Sometimes it's used in a twist. For example, the first time a Megatron [[SayMyName yelled STARSCREEEEEEAM]]! at the top of his vocal processor, it was begging Screamer not to throw him off the ship in deep space. Every other Megatron since has yelled it upon discovering Starscream's betrayal - before embarking on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge over said backstabbing.
