** Kirbopher's in-universe character, Kirbopher15, even lampshades this in an early episode where he says "God, I love this music!" When the Wily Stage 2 theme starts playing as battle music.

* FridgeBrilliance: Kirbopher15's odd power-up [[spoiler: from the D-Bug]] comes up in the form of '1111'. Years later, [[ContinuityReboot TOME is made]]. Check the date it came out... see what he did there?

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Although [[spoiler: both Execk and Zetto are hit with AdaptationalHeroism in the reboot]], WordOfGod confirms that they have a relationship similar to father and son, referencing their [[spoiler: mutual affiliation with the hackers in the original]]. It's also a case of [[ActorAllusion]], as Zetto and EXE were voiced by Chris Niosi and his father in the original.

* SailorEarth: Given the way Character Creation works in TOME, it's easy to make a TOME OC. All you have to do is design almost any kind of character you want, give them a player, and presto! At several points in the series, there were even opportunities to donate to the show for the chance to have your original design be featured as a background character.

* The hackers were harassing other players and tearing the game apart to complete their agenda. [[spoiler: SOFDTI, through Gamecrazed, helped convince Nylocke to begin the quest to stop the hackers because she knew Rubirules's ultimate agenda involved putting people at risk so he could achieve fame and fortune]].

* AwesomeMusic: One of the definite highlights of TOME is Weston Durant's soundtrack - even though most of it was created for another, unrealized project, it still fits the series perfectly.

to:

**[[spoiler: Rubirules being the main villain was intended by Chris Niosi from before the show even started. While it can be argued that it could've been set up better, TheReveal, by definition, can't be an AssPull.]]

** When SOFDTI is first discovered in Episode 00, Rubirules is noticeably excited, even saying things like "This is way beyond the scope of the individual game" and to "think of the possibilities". He's noticeably aggravated when Execk suggests they focus on finishing the game first.
** An argument against this is that [[spoiler: there would have to be a reason behind the admins and the Netkings not doing anything about the hackers (or even acknowledging their existence) for the past season so there had to be somebody on the admins or Netkings' sides intentionally directing their attention away from the hackers, who most likely isn't Zetto or Kizuna as they presumably split off from the Netkings and haven't talked since.]]
*** In addition, [[spoiler: Tigerlily/Kizuna shows up in Episode 6, attacking Nylocke for seemingly no reason. This is later revealed to be her checking up on another antivirus component hidden in Nylocke's character. During the fight with Rubirules he reveals himself to have been the one who created Nylocke's character model and likely the one responsible for putting something in it.]]
*** Zetto's motivations alone seem kind of empty ("It cut off my arm, now it'll pay!"), and they only gained substance once he made a friend who got wrapped up in the situation. Before that, there had to be someone else behind the scenes pushing him to do it (and it likely wasn't Kizuna given how much she's shown to care for him)
** Looking back on the episodes with the Big Bad in it after Word of God revealed that this was his plan since Season 1 and what clues he tried to leave towards the reveal, it becomes sort of obvious that the Big Bad is such from his first appearance. [[spoiler: Rubi is the only one of the five Netkings who the Party of Five fight who seems to come off as a jerk during his fight, and his own statement that reveals he created Nylocke's model tipped off those fans who figured out in Episode 10 that Nylocke would be part of the Dragon Bug weapon (thanks to the image of the dragon shown when Kizuna talks about the weapon) that Rubi was involved with the whole thing as well.]].
