*** 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''.

* Gipsy Danger's atomic generator allowing it to work in an EMP Field mirrors [[GiantRobo Giant Robo's]] ability to function within the Anti-Shizuma field. That the world's last hope lies with an outdated atomic robot also mirrors Giant Robo.
