* {{Expy}}:
** The designs of the main protagonist and antagonist are reminiscent of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' characters Simon and Rossiu, respectively. The entire show could even be considered as ''TTGL''[='=]s SpiritualSuccessor. For that matter, Ryuko fills in the role of Simon but has Kamina's personality, Satsuki fills in the role of Lordgenome, the Elite Four fill in the role of the Four Generals, and Ragyo fills in the role of the Anti-Spiral.
** Gamagoori is more or less a teenage, subservient [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Raoh]] (with a character design closer to Souther, though) and a reincarnated [[spoiler: Manga/HentaiKamen]].
** Ryuko and Satsuki are pretty much like [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante and Vergil]] and [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna and Jin]]. [[RedOniBlueOni Red vs. Blue]], {{BFS}} vs. KatanasAreJustBetter, and [[spoiler: Siblings?]] Yup.
** Tsumugu is Yoko genderbent. He's got a shock of red hair and excellent sniper skills, and he's extremely attractive, especially in his revealing battle uniform. Yoko could also be his mother, with Kittan as his father. Plus he's voiced by [[Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi Kamina himself]], even if he is more of a [[TheStoic reserved stoic]] who [[CombatPragmatist prefers sneaky tactics]], though it's not like [[ActorAllusion he hasn't]] [[ANime/GaoGaiGar voiced one of those either.]]
** Nui Harime is heavily based off of Nia Teppelin, albeit an ''extremely'' dark take on her. Both are blonde GenkiGirl {{Artificial Human}}s created by the true {{Big Bad}}s of their respective stories and from the same materials (Anti-Spiral DNA for Nia and Life Fibers for Nui), share similar designs (including unusual eye features[[note]]Nui has the eyepath whilst Nia has ExoticEyeDesigns[[/note]]), have three-letter names that start with "N", are introduced with/after a massive turn of events that change the protagonist dramatically, and they both [[spoiler:die on their own terms]] (Nia [[spoiler:dies so that Simon can defeat the villains]], and Nui [[spoiler:kills herself so that Ragyo defeat the heroes]]).
** [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Ryuko and Mako]] are comparable to [[Manga/KillMeBaby Sonya and Yasuna]], though Ryuko never abuses Mako and Mako can handle ''much'' more nasty beatings. Funny enough, there are fans [[JustForPun who make puns with the two anime's titles]].
** The Tennis Club Captain, Omiko Hakodate, looks and acts like a female version of Viral from ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann''.
** Takaharu Fukuroda is very similar to Ziria from the ''VideoGame/TengaiMakyou'' series, up to sharing [[Creator/MitsuoIwata the same voice actor]].
** Senketsu and Isshin Matoi seem like expies of Mazinger Z and Dr. Juzo Kabuto. Isshin created a super powerful uniform then was killed by the antagonist which propelled Ryuko into her RoaringRampageOfRevenge. She also uses her father's creation to exact her revenge similarly to Kouji Kabuto.
** Ryuko's situation is also similar to that of another Creator/GoNagai creation, ''Anime/CuteyHoney''. Honey, like Ryuko, is also out for revenge after her father was killed. Said father was also responsible in some way for her powers. Both also wear highly {{Stripperiffic}} outfits in battle.
** Ryuko's situation and personality also bares a striking resemblance to that of [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna the Bloodedge]]. Both of them are [[GoodIsNotNice mean]], but [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold good-natured]] loners who wield [[{{BFS}} really large swords]] that can [[MorphWeapon transform into an even bigger sword.]] They're primarily motivated by revenge for the death of a loved one and go against an established government to do so, and end in up a conflict with [[KatanasAreJustBetter a Katana user]] [[spoiler: Who later is revealed to be their sibling.]] Bonus points for the actual culprits of their messed up lives being revealed later, and [[{{Troll}} taunt them over their weakness which massively pisses them off]]. The BigBad of each respective series is also revealed to be [[spoiler: a relative]] of theirs as well, who is also under the control of [[spoiler:an otherworldly menace]].[[note]]The main difference here is, unlike what happened so far in ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronoPhantasma'' [[spoiler:Both Ragyo and Nui worked and died together at the end]] compared with what happened with [[spoiler:Terumi (Nui's counterpart), who was betrayed by Izanami (Ragyo's counterpart) and killed by Hakumen at the end.]][[/note]]
** Ryuko's situation also bares a striking resemblance to that of [[Franchise/MortalKombat Scorpion]]. Both of them use otherwordly powers. They're primarily motivated by revenge for the death of a loved one and go against an established government to do so, and end up in a conflict with a member of the organization [[spoiler: who later is revealed not to be one responsible for the death of their loved one]].[[note]]The main difference here is, unlike what happened so far in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', [[spoiler:Ryuko does not kill Satsuki]] compared with what happened with [[spoiler:Sub-Zero[=/=]Bi-Han (Satsuki's counterpart), who was killed by Scorpion (Ryuko's counterpart) after the latter was manipulated by Quan Chi (Nui's counterpart).]][[/note]] Bonus points for the actual culprits of their messed up lives being revealed later, and [[{{Troll}} taunt them over their weakness which massively pisses them off]]. The actual culprit of each respective series is also revealed to be working with the GreaterScopeVillain who seeks to conquer and rule the world in their image.
** Character design-wise, Ryuko looks a helluva lot like [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Seija Kijin]], enough for many Japanese fan artists to create lots of crossover art featuring both Ryuko and Seija switching clothes and/or situations. In less degree, many artists love to depict Mako as Shinmyomaru Sukuna, also from ''Double Dealing Character''.[[note]]It does help both ''Double Dealing Character'' and this series debuted in the same year, with few months of difference.[[/note]]
** Maiko Ogure looks like she could be the sibling of Rue from ''Anime/PrincessTutu''.
** Houka Inumuta is like a more cynical version of [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Miki Kaoru]].
*** Several people have noted he also bears a physical resemblance to [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Ishida Mitsunari]] from another CrazyAwesome HotBlooded series.
** If Ryuko is [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Simon]] and Satsuki is Rossiu, then Mako is the Kamina of the three. There are many similarities, both are rather crazy, have weird perception of the world, has no real power when compared to the protagonist, are utterly fearless and will charge into any situation without much thinking. What is the most important however is that both serve as enormous moral support to the protagonist in their moments of need.
** The Original Life Fiber is basically [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Lavos]] right down to ''its entire modus operandi''. For bonus points, Ragyo assumes a role very similiar to Queen Zeal.
** Some fans point out the similarities to ''Anime/SCryed''. Both are conflicts between a chaotic AntiHero and an AntiVillain working for the established order, [[spoiler: who end up working together when a larger threat comes around.]] Kazuma and Ryuhou even have similar personalities and a similar dynamic between them to Ryuko and Satsuki.
** Sanageyama's character and development is a condensed version of [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong's]].
** Doesn't Mako look exactly like [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Chie]]?

--> '''Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi''': "...[[CatchPhrase Let me give you two pieces of information]]. One, our {{DVD}}s and Blue-rays are selling like hotcakes; Two, I'm Guts, GATTSU-GATTSUU~!!"[[note]]The creators mentioned at the episode 24 screening that the "?" credit was initially because, with Konishi being a big-name voice actor, they didn't want fans to guess that they wouldn't hire him just to play a Poke-Speaking dog and guessing that he was going to voice another character (the as-yet-unrevealed Tsumugu, who didn't appear until episode 5).[[/note]]

** Apparently, Soichiro was supposed to have a major role in the plot according to some concept art, particularly where he is with Mako and there is some dialogue. Likewise, he was also supposed to be in a wheelchair and bald.

* {{Symbolism}}: [[http://imgur.com/znVzFyo This]] is a good run-down of much of the mythological symbolism used in the series. It involves TheFourGods (The Kiryuin Conglomerate, though there seems to be no one for Seiryu), The Four Devas of Hinduism (The Elite Four), Chakras, some Japanese history (which puts Satuski in OdaNobunaga's role of attempting to unite Japan), and the placement of the REVOCS building ({{Tokyo|IsTheCenterOfTheUniverse}}) and the academy (where Tokyo's three rivers converge).
