** The name is also a direct reference to CuteyHoney, specifically [[spoiler: Cutie Honey's civilian identity Honey Kisaragi]]. Given that many of the people that formed StudioTrigger worked on Re: Cutey Honey at Studio Gainax, it's a nice nod to their previous work (and far from the only one).
* [[spoiler:The death of Senketsu]] [[BookEnds book ended]] in the exact same fashion as the original manga ending of ''Anime/BtX''[[note]]Episode 1 used Bt'X as reference, hence the book ends.[[/note]], where [[spoiler:X dies by using all of his protection system on Teppei and his brother Kotaro, sending them back to Earth as he disintegrates.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Going into Marvel Comics territory once again, if Ryuko is Wolverine then Nui is Deadpool. Like the Merc with a Mouth, she's incredibly dangerous even though she gives off the feel of an air-headed doofus, she goes straight into CartoonPhysics territory all the time, (such as reaching across a split-screen to stroke Satsuki's hair even though they're actually hundreds of feet away or leaning across her own BossSubtitles) including breaking the fourth wall in the penultimate episode, and [[spoiler: she even has an insane HealingFactor that makes her nearly indestructible just like Deadpool]].

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: Satsuki wielding Senketsu going up against Ryuko wielding Junketsu]] brings to mind [[Series/KamenRiderBlack Kamen Rider Black dueling Shadow Moon]]. [[spoiler: The Red Scissor Blade]] can be comparable to the Satan Sabre in this particular scenario.

** That being said, it does reference ''[=JoJo=]'', since the hat has hair sticking out in the back, referencing Jotaro's cap, and Mako using RapidFireFisticuffs, referencing Star Platinum.

* Ragyou in her new attire in this episode looks like [[spoiler:the witch Walpurgisnacht from PuellaMagiMadokaMagica not upside-down]].

* Maiko's entire first scene is an homage to [[NeonGenesisEvangelion Rei Ayanami]] . Red eyes? Arm in a sling? Saying she will press on while sad music plays overhead? Sounds awfully similar... Bonus points for the camera angle mirroring the iconic scene from the first episode of EVA where Shinji first sees Rei as she's lying in pain.
