* In a bizarre reverse-nod, in one episode of ''{{Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future}}'', Tank mentions (in an episode written by Creator/JMichaelStraczynski) that he is originally from ''Series/BabylonFive'' -- years before [[Series/BabylonFive that show]] aired. (JMS also mentioned B5 in his novel ''Othersyde'', where it is a character's favorite TV show -- again, before the show actually aired.)

* ''Series/TheFlash2014''
** In "Some Things You Can't Outrun", Joe warns Barry about expecting recognition, and Barry says it's not like he wants them to build a museum for him. In the comics, the Flash Museum was a major landmark in Central City.
** The Mist, whose surname is never revealed in the comics, is given the surname "Nimbus", which was an alternate identity he used in the 80s Will Payton ''Comicbook/{{Starman}}'' series.
** In "Going Rogue", Felicity asks if Barry's powers are increasing his aging, and suggests that if he exerts himself too much, there'll just be dust in a red suit. This is exactly how he dies in ''Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''.
** Leonard Snart briefly wears a blue parka with a fur hood as a disguise, looking a lot like his Captain Cold costume in the comics. (It becomes his standard outfit in later appearances.)
** On Earth-2, the motto of the CCPD is "A Fair and Just Society", with "Society" in bigger letters. This is a reference to the original Earth-Two Comicbook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica, and the Comicbook/{{New 52}}'s ''Comicbook/{{Earth 2}}: Society'' book.
** Also on Earth-2, Ronnie Raymond's counterpart is called Deathstorm, which is the name of Firestorm's Earth-3 counterpart in ''Comicbook/ForeverEvil''. Cisco's counterpart is called Reverb, which was the name taken by Vibe's brother Armando in post-Crisis comics.
** The plot of the season two finale is [[spoiler: the villain wants Flash to power his multiverse-destroying machine, and in the end, (a temporal duplicate of) Flash deactivates it by pushing himself so far he crumbles into dust. Apart from the identity of the villain and the fact it was the real Barry Allen who died, this is #8 of ''Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'']].

** ''Degrassi'' has been a training ground for a generation of young Canadian actors who have gone on to bigger things, but one of the biggest is without a doubt Aubrey Graham, better known as Music/{{Drake}}. So when the show made a ChannelHop to Creator/{{Netflix}} and became ''Degrassi: Next Class'', what do they open the show with? Maya quoting "Started from the Bottom".
