* ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** There are a number of shout outs to ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', such as cockroach clusters.
** Voldemort's talking down to his minion (a traitor nicknamed Wormtail) is reminiscent of Saruman's abusive treatment of a henchman (a traitor nicknamed Worm''tongue'') in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.
** In the ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'' Harry and Hermione notice the quotation [[Literature/TheBible "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also"]] on Dumbledore's mother's tombstone, as well as [[Literature/TheBible "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death"]] on the Potters' grave.
** The fact that the visitor's entrance to the Ministry is an old broken telephone booth with the phone that should not work being located in a garbage dump is one to the pilot of ''Series/DoctorWho'', where Ian and Barbara find an old, broken police telephone booth with a phone that should not work in the Foreman garbage dump.
** ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' has a line about a rat named Wormtail losing a paw. Possibly coincidental, as the resemblance of a rat's tail to a worm is easy to come up with.

* ''Literature/HelpMyStoryHasTheMarySueDisease'':
** One example has a character called [[HarryPotter Harry]] replaced by a fan counterpart, Larry, because the fan author didn't like the way Harry handled [[spoiler: Professor Squirrel]].
** [[ASongOfIceAndFire Dani]] the purple eyed, dragon raising princess and her shoddy knockoff Zani also make regular appearances.
** As do the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Elements of Harmonica]].
** There are also references to Franchise/IndianaJones, [[Franchise/StarTrek the borg]], JulesVerne, HPLovecraft, SesameStreet, {{Twilight}}, SherlockHolmes, [[JustForFun/NotableReferencesToTVTropes This Wiki]], and [[WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum Sue detecting devices blowing up]]. There may be many more.

* ''Literature/GuardiansOfTheFlame'': The game in the books is pretty obviously ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', though the name is never used. In the story it was an invention of Professor Deighton based on the real parallel world they enter.
