* [[TheSpymaster Simon Illyan]] from Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' got his name from [[Series/TheManFromUncle Illya Kuryakin]].
* ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Cryoburn]]'' has two: Miles thinks to himself "Imperial Auditor Vorkosigan; Threat or Menace" (in Spider-Man, J.J.J.'s paper, ''The Daily Bugle'' often ran headlines "Spider-Man: Threat or Menace?"). And Armsman Roic quips to a local "Don't worry, I have a license to stun." The local responds "I thought that has a license to kill?" Both, of course refer to ''Franchise/JamesBond'''s 00 "License to Kill".

* The Literature/{{Dragaera}} page quote on the DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu page is an alteration of an earlier quote said by Vlad about the House of Athyra. As their [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is being wizards, the original is likely a Shout-Out to a much-parodied quote from ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', "Do not meddle in the affairs of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger". This line also gets referenced in Literature/{{Discworld}} on a couple of occasions. Once, when Vlad is warned that a sorcerous adversary could [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail turn him into a newt]], he replies, "I'd get better". Also, the most recent book, ''Jhegaala'' has a Shout-Out to Literature/NeroWolfe- Vlad is bedridden and is using his familiar, Loiosh as his "legs". He comments that this could work well as an arrangement, leading Loiosh to comment that Vlad would soon end up several hundred pounds heavier.
** Not to mention the Literature/SherlockHolmes shoutout from ''Jhereg'':

* In the ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' book ''Time Trap'', the Shadowed One responds to the notion of cutting off hands as punishment for failure with the line "I think enough hands have been removed this year", a reference to ''Franchise/StarWars'''s fondness of having its characters lose their hands, and specifically to the movie ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', which came out the same year as the book.

* The Literature/JakubWedrowycz stories have quite a lot of references, mainly to pop culture: the protagonist BadassGrandpa villager has eaten stew from some octopus-like thing named [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Ktulu]], stole a wand from some [[Literature/HarryPotter snotty bespectacled brat with a lightning on his forehead]], and is said to have also eaten some yellow thing that wandered into his yard calling itself [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} "Pikachu"]]. Another example is when he comes across a zeppelin, made from a metal lighter than air - his friend explains that it's an invention of one "professor Geist", a reference to the classic Polish novel ''TheDoll''.

* ''Literature/TheSilerianTrilogy'': The Honored Society, a play on the “Men of Honor” name the Mafia uses for themselves, and they are ''even worse.'' They're “honored” by people because otherwise they'll remove your water and leave you to die of thirst.

* ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' has Jaume, BiTheWay knight with the title the Prince Of Flowers, who bears quite some resemblance to the Knight Of Flowers from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. May be because the author and GRRM seem to be friends in real life.

* ''ShoutOut/LordDarcy''



* ''[[Literature/LordDarcy Too Many Magicians]]'', by Creator/RandallGarrett, contains a Shout-Out to the Literature/NeroWolfe novels by Rex Stout. The Marquis of London is clearly modelled after Wolfe, from physical appearance to his refusal to talk business over a meal. His assistant, Lord Bontriomphe, is an even clearer reference to Wolfe's assistant Archie Goodwin. Their chef is named Frederique (Fritz Brenner) and the senior police officer is Chief Master-at-Arms Grayme (Inspector Cramer). The title itself is a reference to three Wolfe novels with the ''Too Many X'' format.
** On the other hand, while the Marquis is as smart as his cousin, Lord Darcy, he's a BrilliantButLazy government official, not a detective, who when faced with a murder gets his cousin involved. This suggests another influence was Wolfe's alleged uncle, Mycroft Holmes, fitting in with Darcy's similarities to Franchise/{{Sherlock|Holmes}}.
** In the same book the symbol of the King's Messengers is a lens of grey glass, which glows in the hand of the right man, created by the great magician Sir Edward Elmer; a Shout-Out to Creator/EEDocSmith and the ''Literature/{{Lensman}}'' books.
** ''And'' there's a character called Tia Einzig, a defector from the Polish Hegemony whose Uncle Neapeler escaped with the help of a Manxman named Colin [=MacDavid=] and is now living on the Isle. "Einzig" is German for "only", so Neapeler Einzig, the uncle from Man, has a name that translates as [[Series/TheManFromUNCLE Napoleon Solo]], while [=MacDavid=]'s name is a simple rearrangement of David [=McCallum=].
** The same book has this exchange, which is nearly identical to the "dog in the night-time" one from the Literature/SherlockHolmes story "Silver Blaze":
-->"I should like to call your attention to the peculiar condition of that knife."
-->Master Sean frowned. "But... there was nothing peculiar about the condition of that knife."
-->"Precisely. That was the peculiar condition.
** The Lord Darcy stories have a lot of this stuff. Another is a clear parody of ''Murder On The Orient Express'', in which a Hercule Poirot {{Expy}} comes to completely the wrong solution (but the same one Creator/AgathaChristie used), while Darcy comes up with the real solution undercover as an unassuming priest named [[Creator/GKChesterton Father Brun]].
** A couple of others feature a secret agent named Sir James le Lien (Lien = contract = [[Film/JamesBond Bond]]).
