* Even before entering Las Vegum proper, you'll face [[http://www.giantbomb.com/asterix-obelix-xxl-2-mission-las-vegum/61-11324/all-images/52-170420/bonusart_character_mario/51-1375973/ the first special Roman soldier]]. He has a big moustache, a helmet with a red Roman Eagle shaped like a M, and turtle shells as shoulder pads. He's equipped with a FLUDD device (''SuperMarioSunshine'' was the most recent entry of the main series at the time of ''XXL 2'''s development). When defeated, these Mario Soldiers emit a muffled "Mamma mia!" They get some statues on the Arc de Triomphe, and small flags near the Eiffel Tower.

* The character of [[http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/7470/larry2b.jpg Larry]] [[http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/7537/larry1l.jpg Craft]] gets a cameo before being actually introduced, as a parody of a poster by Creator/HenriDeToulouse-Lautrec. Then he appears in a cutscene, and he has the same dress and hairstyle as [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]] (for the record, [[FanDisservice he's fat and stocky]]). In [=LuckSore=] and WCW, there are [[http://www.giantbomb.com/asterix-obelix-xxl-2-mission-las-vegum/61-11324/all-images/52-170420/xxl032/51-1376383/ many posters of him]] striking the same poses as Lara on the covers of the early ''Franchise/TombRaider'' games, and even some statues of him. Some players have seen the fact he fights with swords mounted on his forearms as a reference to ''VideoGame/{{Bloodrayne}}'''s melee weapons, but it may be just that they had to use something in place of guns.

* The fight before the final boss is a big parody of ''[[Film/TheMatrix The Matrix Reloaded]]''. [[spoiler:Caesar says "Surprised to see me, Mr... Anderson?" This leaves Asterix and Obelix understandably perplexed, thinking Caesar has gone mad - if it wasn't that Asterix says "It ends tonight, Caesar!" soon after. Then, dozens of Caesars start pouring in, exactly as the Smiths in the movie. No explanation is given of how Caesar got all these "clones".]] When the actual fight begins, they managed to slip in a reference to another movie: [[spoiler:[[Film/KillBill you have to defeat 88 Caesars]]]].

''Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission: Las Vegum'' brings the penchant of the ComicBook/{{Asterix}} books for parody and pop-culture references [[ReferenceOverdosed to the extreme]], featuring a large number of {{Shout Out}}s to video games - and a few more from other media, too.

* The menu music hides a very subtle one: For only a few seconds it plays the most iconic passage of the ''Franchise/JamesBond'' theme tune.
