In fact it still is because ''Kill La Kill'' is not the only retro fighting school series parody.

** Mataro = Junpei - Perverted younger brother that has a crush on the protagonist and acts as comic relief

* At the beginning of the series the main characters also have some similarity to the three female leads of ''Anime/ProjectAKo'': a brash, impulsive, tomboyish girl (Ryuko / A-ko) is friends with a ditzy, hyperactive, childish classmate (Mako / C-ko) and is antagonized by a stern, snobbish and ultra-rich lady (Satsuki / B-ko) who is not afraid to don a skimpy super-suit if this means better chances of success.

Satsuki's elite four also resemble B-ko's followers, having a hulking brute, a megane and a petite girl among them.



* The last scene of the beginning credits features a gloved hand evidently grasping air, with details that suggest it may be a shoutout to [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka's famous "I'll kill you" scene.]] Which, given the staff and the context of the story, might not be too far off.

* Among the ProfessionalWrestling holds in which Mako puts Mataro to punish him for robbing there is one of the Italian Stretches, used by the now retired wrestler Milano Collection A.T. from [[Wrestling/DragonGate Toryumon]]. (If you are curious, it's the move in which she suspends him upside down over her shoulder while stretching his limbs. The other two moves showed on screen are a cross armbar and a single leg Boston crab, two very common finishers among Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling rookie wrestlers.)

* Ryuko's face after she was hit by pie, made her look like No-Face from ''Anime/SpiritedAway''.

* Maiko's first scene is an homage to NeonGenesisEvangelion. 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.

* A pretty obvious one in episode 7 with Ryuko forming a Film/FightClub.



** 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.

** [[http://i.imgur.com/bFmcoaY.jpg Gamagoori holding a]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything white cloth]] with a framing very similar to the infamous ''End of Evangelion'' opening scene ([[spoiler:Shinji masturbating to and ejaculating on Asuka while she's unconscious]]).
* Inumuta's HUD looks very similar to the one in the IronMan movies.
* Inumuta's smile after his hacking scene looks just like Light Yagami's smile in Manga/DeathNote.
* Ryuko's outfit becoming skimpier in order to pull off a huge attack brings to mind VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}.

* [[spoiler:Nui's ability to create and operate human-like puppets with strings of Life Fiber]] reminds of Leonof the Puppetmaster from ''{{Manga/Trigun}}'', who similarly created extremely lifelike puppets and moved them with strings.

** Much like Sahaquiel impaling EVA-01's hands in [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion the remake]], Ragyo gets the palms of her hands impaled by [[spoiler:Satsuki's Gako and Koryu blades, only to break them instead.]]
