-----
* The demons have green hair, electrical or fire powers, the zappy one is clingy, and the RunningGag is the (more or less villain) protagonist getting electrocuted now and then. [[Manga/UruseiYatsura Sound familiar?]]
* Many [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/9867/beelzebub_v5_ch43_by_i-eat-manga/4 references]] to ''VideoGame/DragonQuest''.
** [[VideoGame/DragonQuestV It's Madason you dumb ass...and this guy's Nimzo.]]
* Ichiro "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Rodriguez Alex Rodriguez]]" Shinjo. Made even weirder by the fact that he's a boxer, not a baseball player.
* At the school festival there are booths run by both ''Manga/{{Psyren}}'' and ''Manga/SketDance'' cosplayers.
* [[http://www.batoto.com/read/_/2841/beelzebub_ch80_by_keishou-scans/7 Furuichi Ear]] reminds one of a certain [[Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple "alien's" special abilities]].
* And now, unexpectedly, to ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDuty Call of Duty 4]]''.
* Chapter before that there was a shout out to ''VideoGame/StreetFighter''. Only with more nudity.
** Yet another one in [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/49241/beelzebub_ch127_by_red-hawk-scans/3 this cover]].
** Oga, apparently, can do the Shoryuken and Psycho Crusher.
* [[CombiningMecha Max the Ishiyama King]] is a blatant shout out to ''Anime/VoltesV''.
* Apparently, even ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' get a shout-out [[http://www.batoto.com/read/_/9922/beelzebub_v9_ch77_by_keishou-scans from Oga]].
* When Hilda is trying to come to terms with [[spoiler:Oga and Beel's]] body switch, she sings [[{{Disney/Pinocchio}} "When You Wish Upon A Star"]].
* Chapter 91 contains some ''Manga/DragonBall'' [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/42200/beelzebub_ch91_by_i-eat-manga/16 references]].
** And in one omake Oga tries to quote Goku when he needs to get a New Year's Ball for Beel.
-->'''Oga:''' A man I respected said these great words - 'Everyone, give me some of your cash in aura form!'\\
'''Furuichi:''' NO HE DID NOT!
* Episode 49 too.
-->'''Furuichi:''' "Wait, isn't this what [[JourneyToTheWest Goku]] has on his head? Wait...don't tell me, I'm [[Manga/DragonBall Son Goku]]?!"
* The entire [[spoiler:Hilda]] rescue arc seems to be a homage to the Rukia rescue arc from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. To further drive the point home, they both have an extremely similar [[InvertedTrope inverted]] ShutUpAndSaveMe moment.
* Episode 47 of the anime.
-->'''Kanzaki:''' [''[[spoiler:pretending to be Lamia writing a message to En]]''] Let's [[Manga/ToLoveRu To Love-Ru Darkness]]!
* Now Music/LadyGaga makes her appearance. [[ItMakesSenseInContext She's truly a good wife!]]
** Also a wordplay shout out to the NHK drama ''[=GeGeGe=] no Nyobo'' (''Spooky Wife'') about the wife of the ''Manga/GeGeGeNoKitaro'' manga creator.
* Oga's mother introducing herself as [[Manga/OnePiece "Big Mom"]].
* Chapter 140 references ''Franchise/XMen'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom''.
-->'''Oga:''' ... and while they're in the air, finish them off with {{Wolverine}}'s Weapon X Combo Special. That's the type of woman you are.
* Episode 51 has Aoi attacking Koma with "Scattering Sakura Blossoms" when this line was dropped:
-->'''Koma:''' [[{{Anime/Pokemon}} I'm scattering off again]]!
* Does [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/56464/beelzebub_ch135_by_red-hawk-scans/15 this image]] remind you of [[Manga/DeathNote something]]?
* Futaba tries to get Kanzaki to play ''Anime/PrettyCure'' with her.
* In episode 56 Kanzaki's first suggestion for a new group name is [[Manga/KOn Afterschool Yogurty Time]].
* A nice ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' reference from Kido including his constant GendoPose.
-->'''Kido:''' I call it the [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/9878/beelzebub_v6_ch51_by_keishou-scans/11 Ishiyama Rebirth Plan]].
* Furuichi makes a ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' reference during the Best Couple Grand Prix cooking challenge.
* Ebian Ichikawa the "Blind Swordsman," one of the Six Upstarts, appears to be an homage to ''Franchise/{{Zatoichi}}''. He appears to be half-blind, he carries a katana [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_sword_mountings#Shirasaya Shirasaya style]], making it look a bit like a sword-cane, and his nickname, "Blind Swordsman", isn't even trying to be subtle. In fact, in his first appearance, his nickname was actually "Blind Masseuse," which has to be a joke from Tamura, especially given how it was spelt with the exact same characters (座頭市) as the Blind Swordsman's name.
* Chapter 190 features a small one to ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', when Baby Beel draws the titular character's whiskers on Nasubi's face.
* In the next chapter Nasubi performs a finishing move on two opponents, which one of them points out originally belonged to Geese Howard from ''VideoGame/FatalFury''.
* Nasubi's band have apparently been practicing [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya "Hare Hare Yukai"]].
* A small one to a certain [[TabletopGame/YuGiOh card based multimedia franchise]] when Oga creates a CardBattleGame based on his friends...
* Chapter 211: [[Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis The Tojo of Tennis]].
* When looking for the [[spoiler:pieces of Furuichi's soul]], Oga and Akaboshi suggest [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} walking in long grass and spreading honey on trees]] as viable search methods.
* Chapter 239: [[spoiler:Oga uses Beel's energy to give himself an electric aura that turns him blond and later gathers power from all his friends, allies and rivals for the final attack on the bad guy. ''Franchise/DragonBall'' much?]]
** [[spoiler:''Dragon Ball'' nothing, Oga blatantly screams "I am a Super Saiyan" during the pounding he gives Satan/Fuji.]]
