* The fight between [[MightyGlacier Ramona]] and [[FragileSpeedster Roxy]] is pure ''SoulCalibur''. Roxy has Ivy's sword whip...thing, and her outfit's even ripped to match. Ramona has [[DropTheHammer Rock's Onslaught]].

** Also from Zelda, the beginning of the movie, the scene in the kitchen, featured a lot of music from ''ALinkToThePast''. Close inspection of Young Neil's DS reveals a GameboyAdvance cartridge sticking out the bottom, and that game ''was'' ported to the GBA.

* The dramatic leaping sword clash between Scott and Gideon is nearly a shot-for-shot remake of the opening cutscene of NinjaGaiden for the NES.

Added DiffLines:
* 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 ''ALinkToThePast''. 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 ''{{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 RedHotChiliPeppers. * As horrible as it is, Scott's SARS shirt. Anyone from Toronto can appreciate it. * Scott also wears shirts featuring the Bass symbol from ''RockBand'', the logo of the Creator/{{CBC}}, Music/TheSmashingPumpkins [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2a/Billy_Corgan_pic.jpg "Zero" shirt]] and SP shirt, and the name of the band, Plumtree, who wrote the original "Scott Pilgrim" song that inspired the graphic novels. Young Neil wears a Sloan shirt, a shout out to band member Chris Murphy, who tutored the cast in playing instruments. * Todd Ingram says "That's [[CompleteWorldKnowledge bullroar]]" when the Vegan Police call him on his gelato and chicken-related crimes. * Sound effects and sprites from ''Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game'' were added to the film in post-production (most noticeably in Ramona's comic book-style flashbacks) because the director was impressed with the game developer's work. * The monster Scott summons with his bass is rather similar to the one from ''ForbiddenPlanet''. Given that the monster from FP was an extension of a character's Id and Scott's creature is probably driven by his jealousy upon seeing Ramona with Gideon (hence his and the monster's green eyes) its not too surprising. * Envy's hairstyle while singing in the club looks exactly like Misa's from ''Manga/DeathNote''. She even wears a similar outfit to one of Misa's. * In the scene just after the opening credits Young Neil can be seen reading the webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Achewood}}'' on his computer. * Because the movie's script was written before volume 6 was published, [[Manga/{{Bleach}} The Power of Understanding]] doesn't make an appearance. To make up for it though, we get Knives looking almost exactly like a certain [[ActionGirl Action]] {{Ninja}} from the same series. * [[spoiler:Gideon]] uses [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuji-in Kuji-in]] (used in various points in Japanese culture, and most well known these days from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'') to summon his 8-Bit Katana. * [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment ...Her?]] [[http://twitter.com/edgarwright/status/21340766511 CONFIRMED.]] %% %%* The manifestation of ThePowerOfLove is possibly a reference to ''Manga/{{X1999}}''. Or ''{{Mazinkaiser}}'', which would also make it a StealthPun relating to JAMProject. %%** Actually it's from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena''. %% * ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'' (or other RhythmGame) is definitely there. Scott literally plays a "ninja-esque" version of it. ** ... called "Ninja Ninja Revolution." * Some form of ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' is present. Well, actually it's more like every fighting game in existence with all those 'Scott vs. (insertenemyhere)' type screens. Fun fact: That KO! sound you hear? It's from Street Fighter Alpha 3. ** The KO! sound effect is also used in the game. *** Except its a real headscratcher that the iconic, "Here come's a new challenger!" or variant isn't announced." * The fight between [[MightyGlacier Ramona]] and [[FragileSpeedster Roxy]] is pure ''SoulCalibur''. Roxy has Ivy's sword whip...thing, and her outfit's even ripped to match. Ramona has [[DropTheHammer Rock's Onslaught]]. ** Once the weapons are removed from the picture, both Ramona and Roxy use Jin/Hwoarang's Heel Drop move from Tekken. * When Knives dyes her hair blue, her appearance becomes rather [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Rei]]-esque. * Subverted in Scott's first meeting with Roxy. -->'''Scott''': "I'm not up for this right now, come back later."\\ '''Roxy''': "Oh I'd love to darlin', but I'm afraid I just cashed my last raincheck."\\ '''Scott''': "What's that from?"\\ '''Roxy''': "'''''My brain!'''''" * After [[spoiler: Scott is convinced to go get Ramona back]], Edgar Wright uses his mundane LockAndLoadMontage parody, a favourite technique of his in ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'' and ''Film/HotFuzz''. And then subverts it brilliantly. * The twins crank up their [[ThisIsSpinalTap amp to eleven]]. * Lucas Lee's message tone is the alert sound from [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid MGS]]. * Gideons pixellated beam katana could be a reference to ''NoMoreHeroes'' * One combo lasted to up to 64, possibly referring to the 64-bit games or [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Neji's 64 trigrams]] * Before the final confrontation with Gideon, Wallace tells Scott to "[[MortalKombat Finish Him]]" ** May also count as {{Book Ends}} of sorts, since very first evil ex duel started with Wallace screaming out loud "FIGHT!". * It's ''NoMoreHeroes'' The Date Movie. * Gideon's glowing ring used the hypnotic ring sound effect from the 1980 ''Film/FlashGordon'' movie. * The fight between the Katayanagi Twins resembled {{Pokemon}} battles, where there are people from separate sides controlling large {{Mons}} and battling it out. ** The Katayanagi Twins' released dragons resemble [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Hyorinmaru's]] Shikai form. * Scott blocking and countering Matthew Patel is very reminiscent of ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive's'' "reversal" system. * The music cue that scores the beginning of the Lucas Lee fight - titled "Rumble" on the film's score soundtrack - is heavily stylized after the score from ''Film/TheWarriors''. * The "punching" during the Roxy fight is exactly like it happens in a free comic released in 2006, which is available on the [[http://scottpilgrim.com/inside.php?id=previews Scott Pilgrim website]]. * Although the actual shade of Ramona's first dye-job is debatable, if you think it's red, that would make all three hair shades a reference to the three goddesses from ''Zelda''. ** Becomes even more likely if you want to consider the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracles]]; though associated with the color red, Din herself wears pink. ** [[PowerpuffGirls Pink, Blue, and Green?]] ** Or even a reference to EdgarWright's "Blood and Ice Cream" trilogy: [[Film/ShaunOfTheDead Strawberry]], [[Film/HotFuzz Classico]], and [[Film/TheWorldsEnd Mint Chocolate Chip]]. ** The color combination of Red, Blue, and Green could be a reference to many things, also including the RGB color system used in coding pixel colors and in mixing light. * The sound effect when Ramona kisses Patel in the flashback is the Mac startup sound. * The green-eyed Yeti summoned by Scott's Bass in the penultimate Evil Ex battle (As well as Scott's bass itself) was covered in [[GuitarHero light blue]] [[ThePowerOfRock lightning]]. ** Did anybody else jump up from their seats in the theater and yell "STAR POWER!" when this happened?........oh, just me. * According to Edgar Wright, the Chaos Theatre pyramid from which Gideon sits on top with Ramona, is partially inspired by the original arcade VideoGame/DonkeyKong game. It even shares a red and black aesthetic. * Also according to Edgar Wright, he and composer Nigel Godrich are huge ''Series/DoctorWho'' fans, and some cues from the film's score are in reference to [[Recap/DoctorWhoS9E3TheSeaDevils The Sea Devils serial]], a stretch of episodes known for an improvisational score using synthesizers. * Scott throws the Clash At Demonhead CD on top of the Music/{{Beck}} section of the CD store. Beck wrote Sex Bob-Omb's songs. * The original version of the 1-UP/second-run sequence, as seen in the Deleted Scenes on the DVD, featured a number of VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld sound effects. * 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 day after Scott talks to Ramona at the party, he plays what seems to be a variation of the Game Over theme of VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld on his guitar * Most of the evil exes resemble characters from famous fighting games: ** Matthew Patel is [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII a fireball-throwing Indian]] ** Lucas Lee is [[MortalKombat an obnoxious action star]] (and actually uses one of Cage's moves, complete with motion trails) ** Todd [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters is a near all-powerful member of a tribe]] known as Vegans (Yagami) who have special psychic abilities ** Roxy is [[SoulCalibur a hot girl in bondage gear with a whip sword]] ** The Katayanagi Twins bring out a VideoGame/DoubleDragon during their fight. * When Scott enters the Chaos Theatre [[spoiler:for the second time]], Comeau can be heard in the background making a rather paradoxical statement: "Their first album was better than their first album." While it comes across as a parody of hipsters and music snobbery in general, it's also a subtle reference to the band Metric, which wrote the song "Black Sheep" that appears earlier in the movie. Due to trouble with their record label, the first album they recorded - "Grow Up and Blow Away" - was released six years late, during which time they started from scratch and released two other albums. Thus, two albums that were technically first (first released and first recorded). * The part where Scott calls Knives from a phone booth and starts glancing around resembles a similar scene in the 2002 movie ''Film/PhoneBooth''. * Scott's (really Wallace's) home phone rings in the exact same manner as Tim and Daisy's in {{Spaced}}. * The platform Gideon is sitting on in the final fight looks like a scene in ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke''. * Two of Scott's T-shirts--the SP and ZERO shirts--are shout outs to Smashing Pumpkins ** Also, during the band's first battle/the first ex battle, Scott is wearing a Plumtree shirt. Scott is named after the Plumtree song Scott Pilgrim. * Probably just coincidence, but one of Crash and the Boys' members is a ten-year-old Asian girl, in a band with adult men, much like Noodle of {{Music/Gorillaz}}. * The posters proclaiming "TWO BANDS ENTER, ONE BAND LEAVES" took the hint from ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome''. * The dramatic leaping sword clash between Scott and Gideon is nearly a shot-for-shot remake of the opening cutscene of NinjaGaiden for the NES. * Could be a coincidence, but [[spoiler: the scene where Gideon makes Scott [[UnsoundEffect DEAD]]]] is rather reminicent of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. ** Seeing as ''Homestuck'' started that after Scott Pilgrim was released, it was probably ''Homestuck'' referencing Scott Pilgrim, if anything. * This isn't the only time (Young) Neil went on to join [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crosby,_Stills_%26_Nash_%28and_Young%29 a trio of musicians headed by Stephen Stills]] . * The method of describing Ramona Flowers before Scott meets her is very similar to the way [[MeanGirls Regina George]] is described.
