** Dual ShoutOut to the members of Pink Floyd, who actually pulled it off in the seventies, if TheOtherWiki is to be believed.

Added DiffLines:

** Just to name a few:
*** Other instances of fanmail include messages from [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition R. Jenny and Widdle]](which includes a very...creative sketch) and an [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Isabela]] who comments that the Pathfinder can fly her ship any time.
*** A Krogan bulletin mentions an actor by the name of Vega [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Bull]] [[FreddiePrinzeJr Jr.]]
*** Another is, during a toast, Vetra commenting on the defeated Kett as being "face down, ass up," alluding to a phrase Sera from DragonAgeInquisition used to shout when defeating an enemy.

* During [[spoiler: Liam's loyalty mission, one conversation allows Ryder to lie to the enemy leader. What does he/she say if the player chooses to lie? "Everything's under control. [[Film/ANewHope Just a simple weapon malfunction.]] How are you?"]]

* During [[spoiler: Liam's loyalty mission, Browsing around the Tempest's crew quarters reveals two plush dolls; one conversation allows Ryder to lie to of a [[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies Peashooter,]] and another of a [[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombiesGardenWarfare Zombie Scientist]].
* You are offered a pyjak pet near
the enemy leader. What does he/she say if the player chooses to lie? "Everything's under control. [[Film/ANewHope Just a simple weapon malfunction.]] How beginning. The instructions are you?"]]"[[{{Film/Gremlins}} no food after 2359, no baths or showers, and please limit his exposure to solar radiation]]"



* The Kett practice of kidnapping people to convert them into more Kett, existing Kett being unable to procreate, converted Kett being a bunch of SuperSoldier extremophiles, and loyally following the Archon, makes them very similar to [[Franchise/{{Fallout}} Master and his Super Mutants with FEV]].
* [[spoiler: The jardaan as an advanced alien race, who created the native forms, having been in a war and dissapeared without a trace and leaving only their remnant tech behind? Creating the native forms aside, that sounds a lot like the [[Characters/HaloForerunners Forerunners]]]].
* Browsing around the Tempest's crew quarters reveals two plush dolls; one of a [[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies Peashooter,]] and another of a [[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombiesGardenWarfare Zombie Scientist]].
* While fighting through the Flophouse on Elaaden, players can come across a Krogan who goes by the name of [[WebVideo/CriticalRole Strogjaw Grog]]
* Liam is practically a walking ShoutOut factory given his status as TheMovieBuff, and he's made references to ''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang'', ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors'', ''Film/TheComputerWoreTennisShoes'' and ''Film/SevenSamurai''.

* Ryder can find yet another hamster. [[VideoGame/BaldursGate A space hamster, you might say.]] [[MythologyGag Shepard would be proud.]]
* Ryder gets a bunch of fanmail from other Bioware characters. Among the many notes thanking you
[[spoiler: for settling Meridian]] is one from Anders, who writes, "[[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Let's blow the roof off the place!]]" There's also V. Tethras, who declares he's going to write a book about all this.
* While driving around Voeld in the Nomad, one squad mate will eventually start griping about how their parts are getting frozen. Ryder tells them to [[Disney/{{Frozen}} let it go]].
* Similarly on Voeld, near an angaran outpost you get a prompt for a mission called "White Death", where you assist a sniper in finding a cloaked target. Only way they could have made this more obvious would have been to name the [[UsefulNotes/SimoHayha sniper Simo.]]
* Liam is practically a walking ShoutOut factory all on his own given his status as TheMovieBuff:
** During Liam's loyalty mission Ryder can try to pass the noise of a fire fight off as a weapons malfunction, say everything is fine, and ask how they are. With an interrupt option to disconnect the line when the other guys answers back. Remind you of another adventure in a [[Film/ANewHope galaxy far far away]]?
** After landing on Havarl, Liam will send Ryder an email with a [[Film/LittleShopOfHorrors 20th-century musical about a man-eating plant]] attached.
** After [[spoiler:The Remnant City]], Liam sends an message with various vids attached, including one about "[[Film/TheComputerWoreTennisShoes a 1995 vid about an AI's choice of footwear]]."
** Another one of Liam's emails contains various remakes on a vid about "[[Film/GroundhogDay repeating a day over and over again until it's done right]]."
** At one point, Liam mentions an asari remake of ''Film/SevenSamurai''.
** Liam also references ''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang'' and ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' in Nomad banter with Cora and Jaal respectively.
*
The krogan "Strongjaw Grog" appears to be named after barbarian Grog Strongjaw from ''WebVideo/CriticalRole''.
* The large black hole at the centre of the Heleus cluster resembles Gargantua from {{Film/Interstellar}}, though tinted blue instead of gold. Appropriately, that film also dealt with the challenges of exploring and colonizing another galaxy.
* The Remnant Vaults and their robotic guardians bear more than a slight resemblance to the Forerunner installations and their Sentinels in the {{Franchise/Halo}} games.
** [[spoiler:Additionally, the
jardaan (the creators of the Remnant) as an advanced alien race, who created the native forms, having been in a war and dissapeared without a trace and leaving only their remnant tech behind? Creating the native forms aside, that sounds a lot like the [[Characters/HaloForerunners Forerunners]]]].
* Browsing around Havarl is a world covered in [[SceneryPorn bioluminescent jungles]] and lethal predators. It's also a moon that orbits an enormous gas giant and happens to be the Tempest's crew quarters reveals two plush dolls; one birthplace of a [[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies Peashooter,]] and species of tall blue-skinned aliens. [[Film/{{Avatar}} Sound familiar?]]
* Several to ''Film/TheForceAwakens'':
** The way the Remnant ship sticks out of the sand dunes of Elaaden bears a striking resemblance [[Film/TheForceAwakens to
another of a [[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombiesGardenWarfare Zombie Scientist]].
* While fighting through
ship, on another desert planet, in another galaxy]].
** If Drack is present on
the Flophouse on Elaaden, players can come across a Krogan who goes by mission to retrieve the name of [[WebVideo/CriticalRole Strogjaw Grog]]
* Liam is practically a walking ShoutOut factory given his status as TheMovieBuff, and he's
Remnant drive core, when it looks like scavengers have made references to ''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang'', ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors'', ''Film/TheComputerWoreTennisShoes'' and ''Film/SevenSamurai''.off with it, he'll growl "[[Film/TheForceAwakens scavenger scum]]".
** Apparently there's a [[RunningGag Blasto]] vid called ''[[Film/TheForceAwakens The Biotic Awakens]]''.
* After the ''Tempest'' movie night, Lexi will send Ryder an email with suggestions for future events, including for an extranet series called [[Series/GreysAnatomy ''Blue's Anatomy'']].

* During the mission to rescue the ex-Cerberus scientists led by Dr. Brynn Cole, the evacuation scenes resemble the opening of the [[TheEmpireStrikesBack Battle of Hoth]], where surface-to-air guns clear a path for transports. Some of the lines are exactly the same, too.

** Furthermore, when Shepard confronts him, he announces that he has [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} already put his evil plan into action.]]



* The face name of one Hanar is Zymandis, and the soul name is Regards the Works of the Enkindlers in Despair, referencing the poem 'Ozymandias' by Percy Shelly.

* When Shepard and Liara chase the Tala Vasir to a sleazy casino on Illium during the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC, a large screen displays an asari stripper dancing in what is clearly the [[TwinPeaks Black Lodge]]. Made all the more amusing by a volus taking the place of the [[LittlePeopleAreSurreal Little Man From Another Place]] and a krogan statue (complete with assault rifle) in place of the Venus di Milo.
