*** Except its a real headscratcher that the iconic "Here comes a new challenger!" or variant isn't announced.



* This is probably a coincidence, but during the swordfight between Scott and Gideon, their styles of fighting reminded me muchly of the Film/RyanVsDorkman series of videos.

* The ItemGet theme from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' is used at least twice, and one of the dream sequences features the series' fairy theme.
** There's also a musical Shout Out early in the film during a dream sequence. A choir can be heard singing the menu/Fairy Fountain theme from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda''.
*** That snippet starts playing during the unfilling the PEE BAR scene in the bathroom, which creates a sort of FridgeBrilliance if you equate the Great Fairy of the fountain as an [[SittingontheRoof Epiphany Toilet]] figure, since that scene does lead into a new big development in the next after the dream sequence.
** On the Zelda theme, there was what resembled an upside-down triforce symbol painted on Chaos Theatre's door in the last scene. This is apparently the video game equivalent of an upside-down cross. The three triangles were also G's, in reference to the initials of Gideon Gordon Graves, and if you'll count the letters, you'll see another Satanic reference, 666.
** Also from Zelda, the beginning of the movie, the scene in the kitchen, featured a lot of music from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]''. Close inspection of Young Neil's DS reveals a GameboyAdvance cartridge sticking out the bottom, and that game ''was'' ported to the GBA.
* Many other video game sound effects are used too, notably the ring sound from ''SonicTheHedgehog''.
** Quite a few pop up during Roxy's fight.
*** When Roxy gives Scott a look just before he "gets it", the sound effect is a single star from the intro to ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2''.
*** When Scott "gets it", the sound that plays is from ''SonicTheHedgehog'', when your score total has finished rolling over at the end of an Act.
*** The bonus stage warp sound from Sonic is used when [[spoiler:Ramona brandishes the huge hammer.]]
* Gideon's health bar is accompanied by the mushroom power-up sound effect from SuperMarioBros.
* The ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''-esque scene after Scott spends the night with Ramona, complete with the Seinfeld theme.
** Followed by Scott briefly freaking out over a hair color change. Mirroring Seinfeld's tendency to dump the GirlOfTheWeek over little things.
*** Also because, to Scott, [[MythologyGag hairstyle changes are kind of a big deal]].
* Scott opens the bass battle with the battle theme from [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Final Fantasy II]], which he was learning to play [[ChekhovsSkill earlier in the movie]]. Todd counters with the opening bass riff from the song "Around the World" by the Music/RedHotChiliPeppers.
