* ''FanFic/DeathIsForcedToTakeAVacation'':
** Helheim, the Lady of Death in this dimension, is named for the region where the dishonorable dead (meaning those who didn't die in battle) go in Norse mythology. Related to this, one of her other Reapers is named Nidhogg, after the creature that gnaws on the world tree Yggdrasil.
** In chapter 2, Fall Harvest reveals his knowledge of Earth pony magic applied to farming; his information, including the consequences of letting things grow too fast, are based in part on Applejack's own knowledge in ''FanFic/ProjectSunflower''.
** Fall Harvestís bit about grinding up someone and putting them through the finest sieve references a similar line in ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}''.
** Fall Harvest remembers, to himself, a story from another adjunct of Death from another dimension who was waiting for a soul to realize they were dead; their story is the events of the ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' episode "The Hitch-Hiker".
** In chapter 4, Fall Harvest is an Adjunct of Death, currently hiding his identity, who says that "I'm just a guy on vacation." A mortal who's mistakenly believed to be [[TheGrimReaper Death]], or at least the inspiration for him, says the exact same thing on a regular basis in ''FanFic/MakeAWish''.
** Also in chapter 4, Fall Harvest paraphrases the last lines of the last strip from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes''. Helheim promptly lampshades it.
** Chapter 5 mentions how a speedster ran to the end of the universe, pursued by their Death (or at least one of the Deaths of that universe); having literally reached the end of their universe, that Death ceased to be. These events take place in ''Franchise/TheFlash'' Vol 2 #141, when Wally West ran to the end of the universe and back to escape the Black Flash.

it.
** Chapter 5 mentions 5:
*** It is mentioned
how a speedster ran to the end of the universe, pursued by their Death (or at least one of the Deaths of that universe); having literally reached the end of their universe, that Death ceased to be. These events take place in ''Franchise/TheFlash'' Vol 2 #141, when Wally West ran to the end of the universe and back to escape the Black Flash. (This reference was also Evilhumour's idea.)
** Chapter 6:
*** Two of the ponies named in this chapter are Redbird and Blackwing. Redbirdís name comes from the car used by ComicBook/{{Robin}}; Blackwing is the name of a starfighter squadron that plays a minor role in ''[[ComicBook/XWingSeries Star Wars - X-Wing #5: Wraith Squadron]]''. In the same chapter, the character of Green Lake is named for Camp Green Lake in ''Literature/{{Holes}}'', and the character of Light Peanut is inspired by the character of Rube from ''Series/DeadLikeMe'' (these last two were Evilhumour's idea).
*** At least some of the scenes set in the afterlife are inspired by scenes from the ''Literature/RodAlbrightAlienAdventures'' series and the ''[[Creator/BruceCoville Camp Haunted Hills]]'' series.

** During the aforementioned scene in chapter 11, Spliced refers to one of her classmates as ďa gasbag of egoĒ. The same phrase was used by an annoyed character to describe one of her squadron mates in ''[[ComicBook/XWingSeries Star Wars: X-Wing - Solo Command]]''.

** In chapter 14, Spliced references a quote from Socrates: "I am the wisest [man] alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing."
** The valley Twilight mentions as the setting for a weather control experiment (or rather, ''lack'' of weather control) is based on [[Franchise/{{Tremors}} Perfection Valley]].
** During their discussion on weather control, Spliced names a method of creating new clouds that is straight out of ''Star Wars: X-Wing #2 - Wedge's Gamble''.
** Still in the same discussion, Twilight discusses the creation of rainbows; the methodology used comes from a scene in [=RealityCheck=]'s ''FanFic/TheAudience''. So does her usage of the term "morphic resonance field control".
