* Star Wars and Lord of the Rings shouldn't need explaining, but as for the Princess Bride, when Eragon is [[spoiler: imprisoned in Gilead]] he asks [[spoiler: Durza]] "Who are you?" to which he replies: "No one of consequence." Westley and Inigo Montoya share an identical exchange. Doctor Who has very easy to find ones, if you look hard enough. The last [[spoiler: Ra'zac]] tells Eragon that Galbatorix "has more heartsss than you do" (yes, it did have that many s's) TimeLord 's have two hearts. The Lonely God poem, "Adrift upon the sea of time, the lonely god wanders from shore to distant shore, upholding the laws of the stars above." And later: "The trickster, the riddler, the keeper of balance, he of the many faces who finds life in death and who fears no evil; he who walks through doors." Not to mention Eragon's main source of power and transportation is old, new, stolen (borrowed), and blue. As for Starlight, As Eragon is about to depart for [[spoiler: Du Weldenvarden]], Nasuada informs him that "our hopes and expectations" rest on your safe return. Did anyone mention black holes and revelations???

Why? There's Arya mentioning "the Lonely God." There's also Solembum talking about the strange thing's he's seen in Alagaesia, most interestingly "rooms biggerontheinside than they are on the outside." The TARDIS, perhaps? Or just a bit of TimeLord technology? And then there's this little gem near the end of Inheritance:

* Alternatively, Eragon is Inuart and Murtagh is Caim... which explains why Eragon is so whiny and why Murtagh defected: he was getting sick and tired of having to lug around Inuart. Also, Arya is Arioch minus the propensity for baby-eating (notice the similarity of the names?) and Elva is a budding Manah, being a CreepyChild and all. '''''[[TheDarkId Drakengard!]]'''''

As many have pointed out the similarities of this series to other popular ones (namely StarWars, LordOfTheRings, DoctorWho, etc.) and the possibilities of this series sharing a universe with them, it isn't farfetched to think that maybe Paolini was hoping to someday bring all the major fandoms together in a collaborative work. The first step was to throw in some EasterEggs that a softcore reader wouldn't pick up on, but a hardcore reader would. But due to the box office failure of the movie, his plans have been halted.

* If this turns out to be true, he could be the returning BigBad for the independent fifth book. By blowing himself up, he could leave everyone in a HopeSpot, only to return and crush their spirits. Defeating him may require the Rock of Kuthian.

** He had the story planned out, but merely didn't take length into account. As the third book came out TOO LONG (even for his tastes), he had to turn the Trilogy into a Cycle.
