** One episode of the original series takes place at a film studio; in reality, the UniversalStudiosHollywood backlot. Michael and KITT drive past the Clock Tower and Courthouse Square from BackToTheFuture, and KITT remotely controls the mechanical shark Bruce from Jaws (complete with theme music).

* TakeThat: A very blatant example occurs in the first season of the original Knight Rider. The episode features a race between cars running on alternative fuel (KITT's liquid hydrogen included), and one of the cars is an orange Dodge Charger, driven by two stereotypical Southern state villagers, and runs on moonshine. Guess [[DukesOfHazzard which show]] this is supposed to be. When the race eventually happens, Michael and KITT first [[spoiler: Turbo Boost way above that car]] and barely halfway into the episode, [[spoiler: the car blows up and nobody inside survives]].

* GranolaGirl: Played with the (male) character David Dalton. A man who insists on never drinking any alcohol, is seen almost constantly exercising... and thinks cookies are like poison.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In episode 4 of the original series, KITT gets stuck at the impound. He eventually breaks-out by pushing the car in front of him hard enough to break open the gate. It just so happens that theirs a couple making out in said car. When KITT pulls away the woman drops this.

* IWorkAlone: Michael and KITT once encountered a government agent who was working on the same case as they were. He stated this literally word-for word.

* FollowTheLeader: ''{{Series/Airwolf}}'', ''Series/BlueThunder'', ''Series/StreetHawk'', ''The Highwayman'', and arguably ''{{Series/Automan}}'' were all [[TravelCool cool vehicle]] shows spawned in the wake of KR's success. The first two were also obviously DuelingShows that were ''also'' following ''Film/BlueThunder'''s cinematic lead, and ''Automan'' was following two leaders, KR and ''{{Film/Tron}}''. Notably, all but ''Airwolf'' [[ShortRunners died early deaths]].



* FollowTheLeader: The success of the ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]]'' movie was a major influence on [=KR08=]'s pilot movie, and the subsequent show borrowed a lot of design elements (including the transformation style), culminating in bringing Creator/PeterCullen back as the voice of KARR.
** Ironically, the transformation style had previously been attempted in ''Viper'', which was a distant FollowTheLeader of the original Knight Rider.
