** A minor one: F1 Spirit (a real MSX game) is available in a store for 130 coins. F1 Spirit 3D (also an MSX game) is available in the same shop, costs 5 Coins. When combined with the MSX version of ''{{VideoGame/Contra}}'', it either drains your health, or makes you a OneHitPointWonder.

This stems from the [=MSX2=] version of ''Contra'' being regarded widely as a PortingDisaster and the developers just straight up disliking ''F1 Spirit 3D''.

** The remake also has a bit of SelfDeprecation with one block puzzle in the Twin Labyrinths that was unsolvable in the original (as the original's double jump was more restrictive than the remake's, making it impossible to access one of the blocks). The nearby tablet states "those that created this contraption are fools; they made a puzzle that could not be solved."

[[spoiler:Turns out the original simply lacked a trapdoor, which was the only thing added to fix that puzzle.]]

* TakeThat: In the remake, if the player takes the Crystal Skull to Elder Xelpud, he will make a crack about an ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull movie]] with this item being its MacGuffin.

* TakeThat: The first page of the manual is a jab at newer generations of video games, as well as gamers of the current generation:
--> ''"For those used to the new-style of really easy games, it may be very hard to beat La-Mulana. But that's OK. We're looking for those gamers that could in days past defeat [[TheTowerOfDruaga Druaga]], bring the baby back safely from the clutches of [[MazeOfGalious Gallious]], and sealed the Evil Crystal."''
** If you're an NES fanatic, a couple of Xelpud's quotes might piss you off a bit.

In the remake one of Xelpud's [[TalkativeLoon ramblings]] has him complaining that a new game he just downloaded is too easy and contains too many hints. This could be a TakeThatMe, since the remake has Xelpud give many more hints to early puzzles than you got in the original game.
** Also in
the remake, if show Xelpud the player takes the Crystal Skull to Elder Xelpud, he will make CrystalSkull and he'll comment that a crack about an ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull lousy movie]] was made about it.
