** The name is also a direct reference to Anime/CuteyHoney, specifically [[spoiler:Cutie Honey's civilian identity Honey Kisaragi]]. Given that many of the people that formed Creator/StudioTrigger worked on Re: Cutey Honey at Studio Gainax, it's a nice nod to their previous work (and far from the only one).

* Most of the main characters including the Ryuko, Mako, Satsuki, Mikisugi and the student council can be considered to be expys of characters from ''Anime/CuteyHoney'' and ''Re: Cutey Honey''. [[http://imgur.com/tA5nXXp See here]].

As expected from show made by former Creator/StudioGainax staff, ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is absolutely [[TropeOverdosed overflowing]] with [[ShoutOut shout outs]]. The list below is in fact only a portion of all the known shout outs and references in the show. A more complete list is currently being compiled by the fans [[https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/225692543/References.html here]].

Added DiffLines:

* Inamuta's optical camouflage. It could be a reference to ''Film/{{Predator}}'', although his silhouette's green tint is more suggestive of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''.

*** One that's worth mentioning is the CatchPhrase [[note]]"Let me give you two pieces of information."[[/note]]of Tsumugu [[note]]Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi, played Kamina in TTGL. [[/note]], this line was originally Viral's [[note]]NobuyukiHiyama, who plays Sanageyama in story. [[/note]] line when he first encountered Kamina.

* [[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]].
