** The final words, "you pigs in human clothing" may also be a subtle reference to Orwell's other masterpiece, ''AnimalFarm''.
* Satsuki refers to the other students as pigs in human clothing, perhaps a reference to [[Literature/AnimalFarm a certain novel]] that also deals with themes of totalitarianism, inequality and literal pigs wearing human clothing.

Satsuki refers ends by refering to the other students as pigs "pigs in human clothing, clothing," perhaps a reference to [[Literature/AnimalFarm a certain novel]] also written by Orwell, that also deals with themes of totalitarianism, inequality inequality, and literal pigs wearing human clothing.

** Nonon Jakuzure's original design would have made her further resemble [[Anime/{{FLCL}} Haruko Haruhara]], whom Creator/MayumiShintani voiced.

* Both Ryuko's character and ''Kill la Kill'''s premise are homages to the popular manga series from TheEighties ''Manga/SukebanDeka'', specifically the 1987 ''Sukeban Deka The Movie'' film, in which a delinquent girl heroine had to take down a school ruled by a fascist cyborg headmaster who planned to conquer Japan. Ryuko's visual design, gauntled included, is a direct homage to the character, as you can see [[http://i2.wp.com/tokusatsunetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/saki-ryuko.jpg here.]]
** Moreover, the first ending is almost scene-to-scene identical to the ending of the 1985 ''Sukeban Deka'' live action series, as seen [[http://i.imgur.com/CMirYj8.jpg here]].
* The series has been considered a direct homage to the cult anime film ''Anime/ProjectAKo'' as well. At the beginning of the series the main characters also have some similarity to the three female leads of ''A-Ko'': 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 bikini-shaped 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.

* Similarly, ''Kill la Kill'' contains a lot of homages to the popular manga series from TheEighties ''Manga/SukebanDeka'', both in characters, premise and design.
** The starting of the series echoes strongly the first volumes of ''Sukeban Deka'': a delinquent girl heroine (Ryuko / Saki), armed with a revolutionary improbable weapon (a living school uniform / a yo-yo-weapon), comes to an important school ruled by a evil rich family (the Kiryuin Conglomerate / the Mizuchi family), and is introduced saving a plucky girl with a pauper family who becomes her friend (Mako / Junko). She also has to go through four cronies of the family's lead daughter (called the Elite Four in both series) who trash her in their first encounter, and is assisted by a secret agent with scruffy hair and aviator glasses (Mikisugi / Jin).
** The first ending is almost scene-to-scene identical to the ending of the 1985 ''Sukeban Deka'' live action series, as seen [[http://i.imgur.com/CMirYj8.jpg here]].
** It is also needed to mention the 1987 movie adaptation ''Sukeban Deka The Movie'' film, in which another delinquent girl heroine had to take down a school ruled by a fascist cyborg headmaster who planned to conquer Japan. Ryuko's visual design, gauntled included, is a direct reference to the character, as you can see [[http://i2.wp.com/tokusatsunetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/saki-ryuko.jpg here.]]

* The X symbol on the soldier's "uniforms" of Nudist Beach is identical to the X symbol used by the ''Franchise/XMen''. Particularly the ones from the the ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' cartoon from the 90's. Though here the X represents their hatred of clothing; Their flag is a red X over a pair of underwear. Whereas in X-Men it was a symbol for Charles Xavier.

* Among the ProfessionalWrestling holds in which Mako puts Mataro to punish him for trying to mug Ryuko there is one of the Italian Stretches, used by 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.)

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