** At the end of the ''Corporate Warfare'' DLC, [[spoiler:Dex Jackson]] flees Stilwater and goes into hiding, but the Boss vows to track him down and kill him. He didn't show up in ''The Third'' and may never show up again, since the devs have expressed a reluctance to do missions that depend on the player having played ''VideoGame/SaintsRow1'' and ''Corporate Warfare'' for context (especially since the first ''Saints Row'' and the second's DLC didn't make it to PC).

** The one time the idea of racism really comes up, everybody in the room except the person making a racist joke is offended. Which includes two gang bosses, a lieutenant, and a gang boss' closest friend. Apparently, "Saint's Row" takes place in a universe where racial tensions have nothing to do with gang wars. What makes it more interesting is the fact, that many gangs, especially Carnales (Latino), Ronin (Japanese), Brotherhood (Caucasian) and to large extent also Sons of Samedi (Haitian) are clearly racially defined and based on real-world ethnic gangs.

* GottaCatchThemAll: Boss speaks in the second game. All the time. S\he even has six different voices to use, which say different funny things during missions, as well as when they get drunk. So play the game once as a DarkActionGirl, then as a SpicyLatina, then a SassyBlackWoman, then an EvilBrit, and ScaryBlackMan.

The .44 Shepherd was also in the first Saints Row, and even if it wasn't SR2 still predated Modern Warfare 2 by about 13 months.

* BottomlessMagazines: Certain activities, once fully completed, give you infinite ammo for a specific weapon type. Your magazines themselves aren't bottomless and you will still have to reload, but your ammo reserves are infinite, so you could say that you have a bottomless ''number'' of magazines.

There are some weapon types you can't get infinite ammo for normally, but the Gentlemen of the Row mod adds bonuses of that nature for them.

** The final cutscene at the end of the prologue references the first game, with the leader of the Saints telling various lieutenants to watch certain gangs and one of them complaining about which gang s/he was given. The Boss even says the same phrase Julius used in response.

** A radio ad for an investigative reporter includes a sound bite from the time he said it's preposterous to believe there's a such thing as a zombie gang member wearing West Side Rollerz colors. This refers to one of the secret homies, [[spoiler: Zombie Lin]], from the previous game. * CanonWelding: Ultor later goes on to oppress [[VideoGame/RedFaction miners on Mars]]. Masako. In one of the DLC packs, a character is asked where Ultor is planning on mining, anyway, while you're pursued by Ultor's turreted vehicle prototypes, and the character states "You wouldn't believe me if I told you."

** And when factoring in the CanonWelding, one of the radio ads is for a show called "Red Planet, Red Passion". Second half [[VideoGame/RedFaction sound vaguely familiar]]? The two names you hear most are Parker and Eos, as to remove all doubt. (Could be more of a ShoutOut or MythologyGag due to how it twists the story of the original RedFaction from a miner's rebellion into a sappy love story/soap opera thing.)

** Same goes for vehicles, due the Sandbox nature of the game. At the beginning of each mission, game puts in front of you vehicle you should use. This is however completely optional. You may bring APC/Gunship to the beginning of the mission, and use it all along. However when you kill some boss this way, and cutscene starts, expect yourself be in the vehicle you should. You can also spend more time behind the stick of gunship then walking on the ground, but when you are scripted to fly chopper in the story, expect characters to make fun/have worries about your lack of skill.
