* In the large courtyard at the beginning of WCW, there's [[http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/6085/pipev.jpg a big green pipe]]. You can enter it and find [[http://www.giantbomb.com/asterix-obelix-xxl-2-mission-las-vegum/61-11324/all-images/52-170420/xxl039/51-1376390/ an entire Mario-themed area]]. There are floor mosaics of carnivorous plants, tiles of mushrooms, flowers, [[SuperMarioKart banana peels]] and Shyguys, unstable platforms shaped like Shine Sprites and POW blocks, and [[http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/9201/thwompi.jpg Thwomp-like devices]] (although they are designed to make you fall rather than crush you).

* At some point in [=SeizeUs=] Palace, you'll have to take on [[http://www.giantbomb.com/asterix-obelix-xxl-2-mission-las-vegum/61-11324/all-images/52-170420/xxl069/51-1376424/ an outside area]] that's an homage to the ''Zelda'' games. The statues you have to destroy are two of Link (one sitting, another riding a horse) and [[http://www.giantbomb.com/asterix-obelix-xxl-2-mission-las-vegum/61-11324/all-images/52-170420/xxl074/51-1376429/ one of Princess Zelda]] (double parody, since it also reminds the UsefulNotes/StatueOfLiberty). When you reach the top, you'll be treated by a relief of Caesar with an [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime ocarina]]. And if you look around, you may notice smaller reliefs of Caesar... wearing Link's beret. Two more statues are visibile at the sides of the place of the penultimate battle.

* The first section of the big dark hall in Venetia has a [[http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/1441/blinx.jpg giant statue]] of [[BlinxTheTimeSweeper Blinx]] dominating over it.

* This is very easy to miss. An ornate sarcophagus in the storeroom at the beginning (it's near the giant sword) has a decoration that is made of two mirrored ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' logos.

* 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.
