* The first Eden Prime mission has a character named L. Jenkins die due to rushing in against a group of Geth. Considering the initials and behavior of the character, this can only mean [[WebVideo/LeeroyJenkinsVideo one thing.]]

* Quarian marine Kal'reegar is arguably a bigger shout out to Jayne Cobb than Zaaed, with his quote about just shooting things and [[HiddenDepts being smarter than he lets on]]. What potentially puts Kal'reegar ahead is that he has [[Creator/AdamBaldwin the same voice actor as Jayne]].

* A possible numerical anagram shoutout: [[spoiler: Legion has 1,183 geth programs in its platform.]] Although most would call it a StarWars ShoutOut, but it's really more of a ShoutOut to GeorgeLucas, who many attribute to the revival of the science fiction genre because of the popularity of the movies. The number comes from a film he made earlier called Film/THX1138, and has been hidden in all his movies since. It also pops up in various other places when the writer wants to shout out ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Franchise/IndianaJones'', or Lucas himself.

-->'''Shepard''': Why not? We've got oceans, beautiful women, [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove this emotion called love]]. According to the old vids, we have everything they want.

** The Rachni (and their overall story) are a damn near perfect {{expy}} [[spoiler: of the buggers from ''EndersGame''.]]

* Then there's the rachni quest, which has very eerie similarities to EndersGame.

* In yet another ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' shout out, the planet Maji has an odd skull that bears more than a bit of resemblance to an alien queen. And if that's not enough of a shout out, Maji happens to be used as a big game preserve where vicious animals are brought to [[AlienVsPredator be hunted for sport]], and the skull indeed shows signs of weapons fire.
