* Vita's hammer can take on a form that is a reference to ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' and another which references ''GurrenLagann'' with a drill on the front. ''TTGL'' aired in the same season as ''[=StrikerS=]'' and the hammer is voiced by the same Japanese VA as Simon. Appropriately, that season showed Vita to be a {{Determinator}} like everyone's favorite HotBlooded ''GurrenLagann'' protagonists.
** Ginga's "Revolver Gimlet" attack also resembles ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', to the point that fans have dubbed it the "[[FanNickname Ginga Drill Breaker]]".

* The Numbers's outfits suspiciously resemble plugsuits from Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion, right down to the wristcuffs, shoulder armor things, and hair ornaments.

* The plot arc of the first three series is broadly similar to that of the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' series ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', with the blond nemesis doing a HeelFaceTurn and appearing as an ally in the second series, and a long TimeSkip between the penultimate series and the third installment, during which the protagonists grow up (''CharsCounterattack''). The main difference is that Fate, unlike Char, does not undergo a later FaceHeelTurn.

* Not an anime shout-out, but the ''A's'' in ''Nanoha A's'' is a phonetic sound-alike of "Ace," and that season also features the first appearance of "Belkan Knights," who utilize a triangle array in their magic. In ''AceCombat'', the Belkan Air Force uses a triangle as its emblem and is rooted in the traditions of the ancient orders of Belkan knights.

* The villains of ''Force'' are the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars Hückebein]]'' family. And in both ''AceCombatZero'' and ''AceCombat5'', there is another AcePilot [=NPC=] who's nicknamed "Hückebein".

* Much like in ''{{Macross}}'', TheMovie of the first season actually is an in-universe movie produced on Midchilda.

* Meanwhile, her [[PowerFist Revolver Knuckle]] and her sister's name are references to ''Anime/GearFighterDendoh'', while the physical appearance of the sisters, particularly hairstyle and ribbons, recalls Noriko and Kazumi, the pilots of ''{{Gunbuster}}'', which happens to have spiked rollerblades built in.

* Many of the attacks and techniques in the series are homages to mecha series, notably ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and ''GaoGaiGar''. And especially Subaru, who can be considered a {{moe}} compact-sized ''GaoGaiGar''. Her TransformationSequence included the tornado and G Stone reveal from ''GaoGaiGar'''s Final Fusion. She also has GaoGaiGar's [[RocketPunch Broken Phantom]] and Protect Shade and [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Alteisen]]'s Revolving Stake.

* Vivio's friend Rio in the ''[=ViVid=]'' manga has a pair of spells called Enryu and Rairyu that conjure up twin dragons of lightning and fire. The spells are obviously named after [=EnRyu=] and [=RaiRyu=] of ''{{GaoGaiGar}}'' fame, and when both dragons are used together the resulting attack looks virtually identical to [=GekiRyuJin=]'s Xiang Tou Long attack.
