** Not a holiday movie but hey there's always [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Festivus for the rest of us]].

** Not a holiday movie movie, but hey there's always apparently [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Festivus]] has become a real holiday in the ''SR''-verse (though the Boss has never heard of it). One mission even involves feats of strength and airing of grievances being performed around a Festivus for the rest of us]].pole.

** Not only is it a parody but it actually goes through the history of the Matrix. [[spoiler: The first sim you are stuck into is an idealistic paradise similar to that described in the films. Its excessive perfection - a "sunshine and rainbows" 1950s-era sitcom, in the Boss' case - immediately makes the Bss suspicious as they try to fight their way free of its restrictions, such as being unable to exceed the speed limit or drive dangerously.]]

* A scene of the Boss leaping across a gap with Keith David catching and pulling him up in the "War for Humanity" trailer is a nod to the SuicideMission of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' (Keith David having voiced Captain Anderson in said series just reinforces the ShoutOut).
** Also, every homie has loyalty missions and romances. Although the romances are hilariously parodied. The suits in the real world look a bit like Shepard-Commander's gear too. And the intro mission where the Zin Empire abducts everyone has a lot in common with the mission where [[spoiler:Joker has to get to safety from the Collectors.]]
** In the text adventure you could investigate a planet then launch a probe for resources. How did you progress through the game again?

* The opening cutscene in "The White Crib" before the alien invasion is very reminiscent of the "Walk and Talk" shooting style TheWestWing became famous for. Considering the mission is called "The Saints Wing"...

* The first mission is a slightly different take to traditional Saints gameplay... ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDuty Call of Doody]]'' perhaps? ''[[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Modern Whorefare]]''? Rather than the AffectionateParody of other games ''Purple Ops/Zero Saints Thirty'' is a rather serious (and awesome) take that closely mirrors the games. All the way down to to the breaching scene. You can even go Commando, aka the multiplayer perk, as the melee is a OneHitKill knife here.

* The mission in the "paradise" version of the simulation world starts with [[Series/LeaveItToBeaver Leave It To The Saints]] popping up on the screen as you slide down a banister to a jaunty sitcom tune and even follows up with "Brought to you by..." ad.
** Also, being placed in a virtual reality of sunny, quaint American town from [[TheFifties the fifties]] bears uncanny resemblance to the 'Tranquility Lane' simulation from VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}.

** Don't forget that there is a hairstyle that is obviously a reference to DragonBall, that (painted gold or black) and the karate outfit with the appropriate colors, you can make yourself look a bit like Goku!
** And they have the [[Music/{{Thriller}} ''Thrilling'']] leather jacket. Stylish.

** The rooftop trainings are based heavily on the scene where Morpheus trained Neo in the art of the super jump.

** The rooftop trainings are based heavily on the scene where Morpheus trained Neo in the art of the super jump. Not to mention that the achievement for getting your first superpower is named after Creator/KeanuReeves' trademark "Woah."



** The moral choices while walking through the White Crib are a big parody of Paragon & Renegade action prompts. Include one for punching someone (although in this case both choices punch the victim, just in different places).

* At one moment in the Zinyak text adventure, Zinyak meets a Zin who took umbrage to something. One of the choices was "[[Theatre/JosephAndTheAmazingTechnicolorDreamcoat Coat of Many Colors]]". When you choose it, "Are you... are you quoting a song or something?"

* In addition to the ''DoctorWho''-style outfits mentioned above, entering and exiting the simulation itself comes complete with visual effect sequences very similar to what it looks like when the TARDIS travels through time, even colored appropriately.
