* SkyFace: An episode featured Dr. Killenger's face in the sky at the end reciting Shakespeare's "all the world's a stage" monologue, followed by General Manhower laughing and telling us we can read all about it in the Bible. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment It's entirely unprovoked and unexplained.]]

** Brock Samson himself: while his name is mostly meant to bring to mind "Race Bannon", he's an immensely strong guy with long hair, like the biblical Samson. The name "Brock" sounds like "brick" and "rock," and also means "badger," which all speak to his toughness. Finally, as Brock has been established as being of Swedish heritage, it's worth noting that Swedish surnames are (or were) often literal - "Johansson" means "son of Johan," "Swenson" means "son of Sven," and so on. This would make Brock Samson the "Son of Sam," a possible reference to David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam serial killer. Given Brock's over-the-top violent predilections, this seems quite fitting.

Also, given Brock's love of smoking, it's an interesting coincidence that both "Brock" and "Samson" are name brands for loose leaf tobacco.

** King Gorilla trying and failing to rape the Monarch in prison (he proved unable to because The Monarch was too feminine for his tastes), even funnier as the Monarch also seemed disappointed.

'''''The Venture Brothers''''' (2003-present) is a cartoon series on Creator/AdultSwim[=/=]Creator/CartoonNetwork that focuses upon the lives and adventures of the Venture brothers (snarky Hank and brainy Dean) and their father, scientist/adventurer "Dr." Thaddeus "Rusty" Venture (who has grown bitter and abusive towards his own children due to his failure to live up to the legacy of his super-scientist father Jonas Venture, making him a sort of pulp version of a FormerChildStar). They are followed by their government issued bodyguards: first Brock Samson, an ex-black ops agent (described by arch-enemy the Monarch as a [[HeroicComedicSociopath "Swedish murder machine"]]) and then Sergeant Hatred, a former super-villain/recovering pedophile who was drafted by the military to replace Brock when he quit the job.

** The episode "Escape to the House of Mummies Part II" parodies the ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' scene, with Brock cutting open Edgar Allen Poe in order for Hank to rest inside of him.
** In another Venture Bros. episode, Rusty is stranded naked in the arctic. Brock shows up just as he is about to be attacked by a polar bear, and skins the bear with incredible speed to keep the Doc warm. In this case it's partly residual body heat from the bear (its skin is shown to be steaming) and partly just the benefit of a fur coat.
