** The absurdity of the overkills, however, sometimes went beyond physics, as, on two separate occasions, the Megas opened up its chest, and out came the main gun of an iconic anime spaceship - the first, in the pilot episode, was the main cannon and front hull of the ''Anime/BattlestarYamato'' from the series of the same name; and the second, in an episode close to the series finale, was the main guns of the SDF-1 Macross from ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''.

* This is Jimbo and Ned's preferred hunting method in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''; in "Volcano", they say a deer looks to be about a 46-gauge; cut to Jimbo firing a bazooka at it. When they fish (in ab boat named ''U.S.S. Fishkiller'', they first throw grenades into the water, before launching some sort of missile down into the lake, killing every fish. And when they unknowingly hunt Cartman (in disguise as a creature he made up), he uses some sort of missile-firing harness thing. Then, in "The Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka", in order to skirt hunting regulations, they now claim they always have to "Thin out the numbers" of animals; Ned promptly roasts some deer with a flamethrower, and Jimbo then states that they're gonna use napalm on beavers.
