* One mission involves you using [[Franchise/MetalGear stealth and boxes to get through]]. Shooting lights causes the enemies to have [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid a WTF exclamation that sounds like the MGS !, and if you get spotted or killed, Asha yells "Boss!" just like your support team if you die.]] Also, [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty listen closely to the music]].

** Really, the entirety of Asha's recruitment mission is an AffectionateParody of Franchise/MetalGear, riffing everything from patrolling guards, to air ducts, death codecs, alert signals, evil clones with eyepatches, and the morality of killing lightswitches (he had a ''family'' dammit!).

* The sprint and jump effects and animations are very similar to those used in ''VideoGame/{{Crackdown}}''.. Collecting the data clusters is also similar to collecting the Agility and Hidden Orbs.

*** The text adventure game that follows summarily references ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', four works by E.A. Poe ('The Tell Tale-Tale Heart', 'The Pit and the Pendulum', 'The Raven' and "Literature/TheCaskOfAmontillado"), ''Series/GilligansIsland'' and ''VideoGame/LeatherGoddessesOfPhobos''.

* 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.

** 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.
