** As Vicky is a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan,
''The New Prophecy'' was originally going to be called ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation'', Generation]]''. She still had files on her computer with "TNG" in the name years after ''Franchise/StarTrek''. the New Prophecy series was done.
** Fuzzypelt is named after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuzzy_Felt Fuzzy Felt]], a toy Vicky remembers playing with when she was little.
**
The magazine "Cat Fancy" appears ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat_Fancy_(magazine) Cat Fancy]]'' makes an appearance in a panel in one the first volume of the mangas, and [=SkyClan=] manga, on page 82.
** One of the Adventure Game chapters in ''Battles of the Clans'' is titled
"[[Music/TheBeatles Here Comes The Sun]]".
** A few character name references:
*** Macgyver in ''[=SkyClan's Destiny=]'' is named after
the Sun]]" [[Series/MacGyver television show of the same name]], as Vicky is a fan.
*** Nightwhisper's rogue name, Mowgli,
is the same name of a chapter in a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''-style game in as the back main protagonist from Rudyard Kipling's ''Literature/TheJungleBook''.
*** Two cats that show up together in ''Bramblestar's Storm'' are named [[Film/GoneWithTheWind Scarlet and O'Hara]].
** Several quotes from movies have been altered and made it into the dialogue:
*** In ''Moonrise'', Talon's answer to how they'll lure Sharptooth to the cave - ''"With blood."'' - is a reference to ''Franchise/{{Rambo}}''.
*** In ''Sunset'', after Hawkfrost dies, Brambleclaw hears Hawkfrost's voice in his mind, saying, ''"We will meet again, my brother. This is not over yet."'' This is [[https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10155202720597454&id=29566467453 a reference]] to the line ''"One day we will meet again, my brother. But not yet, not yet."'' from ''Film/{{Gladiator}}''.
*** In ''Ravenpaw's Farewell'', the line ''"There is a secret that I have kept from you without meaning to: I have always been a warrior."'' [[https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10155205686247454&id=29566467453 is a reference]] to the line ''"That's my secret, Captain. I'm always angry."'' from ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 The Avengers]]''. When Vicky got the go-ahead to write a novella about Ravenpaw's final days, the original version
of the books.line in her head was "That's my secret, Barley. I have always been a warrior." (She changed it enough so that it wouldn't be so obvious that the line was lifted from the movie.) From there she got the idea for the rest of the book, that Ravenpaw would be confronted with his warrior loyalties one last time before his death.
*** In ''Tallstar's Revenge'', Talltail says, "[[Film/ThePrincessBride You killed my father. Now I'm going to kill you.]]" [[WordOfGod Vicky confirmed on her Facebook]] that Talltail was paraphrasing Inigo Montoya.
