* One of the new areas is heavily themed around bestial enemies (including werewolves and crow-themed creatures) and a cult that uses blood as their medium, along with one of the bosses literally being named [[VideoGame/Bloodborne The Blood-Borne]]? Definitely a giant reference to the game of the same name.

* Covetous Shen strongly resembles ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina''[='=]s David Lo Pan in mannerism. Unsurprising, considering he is voiced by James Hong himself. Moreover, you initially find Covetous Shen trapped inside a barrel. If you wait long enough before rescuing him to hear all his dialogue, you get an achievement called "Big Trouble in Talking Barrel" which just underlines the reference.

* Abd al-Hazir sounds suspiciously like [[CthulhuMythos Abdul Alhazred]], doesn't it? In particular, they have ShownTheirWork, "Abdul Alhazred" is [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign bad Arabic]] and a common "correct" form of the name is Abd Al-Azrad.

Added DiffLines:

** With a reference to the film's Six Demon Bag, no less.
---> ''"Infused with the powers of wind, lightning, all that kind of thing! Then again... a couple of extra demons never hurt."''
** The shoulder piece from that set, the Mantle Of The Upside Down Sinners, recalls the Hell Of Upside Down Sinners from the same film.
