* When Roxy smashes the disco ball, the glass shards and their reflections slightly resemble the character selection screen of a typical fighting game, with Roxy and Ramona being the giant character portraits and Scott being a mere icon.

* When Roxy smashes the disco ball, the glass shards and their reflections slightly resemble of glass line up in the character selection screen style of a typical menus of many fighting game, videogames that show the players facing off in opposing windows.
* Roxy's razor belt is a tribute to the weapon of Ivy Valentine in the Namco game ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur]]''. Mae Whitman performed the scene
with Roxy a ribbon utilising her high school skills as a rhythmic gymnast.
* The fight where Ramona puppeteers Scott is inspired by a 2006 Free Comic Book Day story that O'Malley wrote where the two fought actress Winifred Hailey and her clones. The fight, choreographed by Peng Zhang, is a tribute to Jackie Chan's inventive fight sequences. Many shots were filmed at 22fps.
* After Ramona tells Scott that he's just another Evil Ex waiting to happen, we hear the Mac trash sound when Scott closes his eyes.
* The laminated list of Exes is a little nod to ''Film/KillBill''.
* In the scene where Stephen Stills talks about the Katayanagi Twins, Scott wears a 4½ T-shirt - a moniker given to Reed and Sue Richards' son Franklin in the ''Comicbook/FantasticFour''.
* TIBB is a riff on TIFF, the Toronto International Film Festival.
* The poster announcing "Two bands enter, one band leaves" references "Two men enter, one man leaves", a well known chant that originally appeared in ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome''.
* The stage where the battle with the Katayanagi Twins takes place is called Ninth Circle, referencing the final level of Hell in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''.
* Scott's T-shirt during the Katayanagi Twins battle is the bass from the ''VideoGame/RockBand'' logo. Scott plays bass.
* The Twins' amplifiers are called 'Twinn' in a tribute to Sunn Amps.
* The Twins turn their amps to 11 in Japanese katakana script. This is in reference to ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap'' where the titular band had amps that went to 11.
* When Gideon kisses Ramona's ring we hear the sound of Ming's ring from ''Film/FlashGordon''.
* The name 'G-Man' is in reference to well-connected rock producer Ronnie 'Z-Man' Barzell from Russ Meyer's ''Film/BeyondTheValleyOfTheDolls''.
* Wallace's date (after Scott
and Ramona being break up) wears a Threadless Rocking 80's Spaceman T-shirt.
* After
the giant character portraits and phone call with Gideon, Wallace tells Scott being to "Finish Him", which is traditionally used in the videogame series ''Franchise/MortalKombat''.
* The elevator hipsters wear Bat T-shirts designed by D.I.E (Denim Is Everything).
* The five way reaction split after Gideon stabs Scott was inspired by Japanese anime shows.
* Kim's eyebrow arching just before Scott apologises to her (during "Round 2") makes
a mere icon.Mac error sound.

* 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.

* 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]].
