* 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''.

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

* 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 That the world's last hope lies with an outdated atomic robot also mirrors Giant Robo.

* Gipsy [[{{Mechwarrior}} dumping its coolant to attack faster.]] Unlike ''Mechwarrior'', however, the coolant itself is weaponized. * It's a bit of a stretch, but there's one crowd scene where there are two helmeted UN troopers standing to the right of Stacker Pentecost's shoulder while he delivers Important Plot. These are the only two helmeted guys clearly visible in the scene - one white guy and one black guy - and they look suspiciously like the two UN troopers guarding the base in the opening scenes of ''MuvLuvAlternative''. There are several other distinct parallels, including:

** Specifically, it appears to be based on the RX-77-01 version from ''MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin'', with its 3-clawed hands, larger cannons and blue visor. * Related to the above, Striker Eureka has "GN 000" printed on its left chestplate. This is the model number of the [[MobileSuitGundam00 0 Gundam]], which becomes more appropriate once Stacker is in the driver's seat.
