* ''ShamanKing'': Lyserg Diethyl, one of Yoh's allies who eventually joins the X-Laws. People from the 60's or familiar with the Hippies may be able to pick it up, but it's a reference to [[spoiler:Lysergic Acid Diethylamide...aka LSD, infamous hallucinogen that supposedly let you talk with spirits. Spirits are the whole premise of the series]].

* In ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'', Nathan's name, when pronounced in Japanese ("Nee-San"), sounds eerily like [[CoolBigSis the role he plays in the series.]] There's also Kotetsu/Wild Tiger's eye color, which shifts between {{brown|Eyes}}, [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold]], and something in between. There's actually a [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-whZiQ0zM5d8/TbjE3u0KsoI/AAAAAAAABE0/045BOxbFRM0/s1600/virgo%20tigers%20eye.jpg gemstone with the same sort of coloring]]. It's called tiger's eye.

* ''Manga/YumekuiMerry'': I was posting this as {{bilingual bonus}}, but posting here seems more logical it seems
** Merry {{trademark favorite food}} are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_doughnut_varieties doughnuts/donuts]].
** Here in Brazil (and perhaps other Portuguese speaking countries) the same treat is known as "Sonho".
** The most general translation for the word "Sonho" is "Dream".
** Yumekui literally translates as "Dream Eater".
** ... Perhaps I should post this in FridgeLogic?
** Sure I missed some opportunity to add Sata Andagi (japanese brand of fried dough) in this topic
