** There is also a running gag in the series involving the main robot losing an arm in nearly every battle against the monsters. You can only guess what happens TWICE to Gipsy Danger before she's finally obliterated for good.

Added DiffLines:

*** It's not. Del Torno has outright stated that ''Anime/GunBuster'' served as an inspiration. All the similarities between this movie, ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' is just a shared sourced.

* Slattern's emergence from the breach is reminiscent to the "RELEASE THE KRAKEN!" moment in 2010's Film/ClashOfTheTitans.

* A mech going berserk, thanks to its pilot's memories, and attacking (or, in Gipsy's case, nearly attacking) the control room. Absolutely nothing can stop it, not even getting unplugged. This is a reference to EVA-00 going berserk when [[spoiler:Rei]] was inside it, albeit without headbutting the control room.

* One of the first scenes is a black commanding officer communicating with world leaders on computer screens. [[Film/TheAvengers Sounds familiar]].

* The explosion really comes from all over Gipsy but the camera focuses on her chest reactor. [[{{Guyver}} What other series has not just a chest blaster but a chest blaster that is way bigger than the person that fired it and is a wall of pure instant death?]]

* So obscure it might be a coincidence: Newton has a lot in common with ''{{Dorohedoro}}'''s Dr. Kasukabe: both are smaller-than-average [[MadScientist over-enthusiastic scientists]] with short hair, glasses, elaborate tattoos and [[AlienAutopsy a really hands-on approach]] to studying beings that can easily kill them, to the point of [[spoiler: mind-melding with / ''marrying'' the enemy, respectively]] and their research does a lot of good [[spoiler: seeing into the mind of the kaiju / knowing how evil magic-users work]] but also causes a lot of damage [[spoiler: the kaiju can read ''his'' mind / unwittingly helping the Big Bad become powerful]]. There's also [[http://www.mangainn.com/manga/chapter/61688_dorohedoro-chapter-69 this parody ]] of [[http://scienceblogs.com/tetrapodzoology/2010/11/01/science-of-godzilla-2010/ kaiju anatomy]] for Kasukabe's [[spoiler: wife, a magic-user who became a devil and can get of her "skin" for a little while]].

** The scene where the kaiju is coming to eat Dr. Geiszler in the shelter is also reminiscent of the scene where the T-Rex knocks down the restroom and eats the lawyer in ''Film/JurassicPark''.

* Mako being rescued by Stacker in the flashback is reminiscent of Setsuna's first scene in ''{{Gundam 00}}''. "I must become Jaeger!", anyone?

* When Knifehead tore off Gipsy Danger's arm, the pain was felt by the pilot, similar to the Mobile Trace System in ''MobileFighterGGundam''.
