[[caption-width-right:350: Guess That ShoutOut! [[note]]Film/BackToTheFuture, {{Doraemon}}, TheTimeMachine and TheTerminator all in one ImagineSpot![[/note]]]]


The writer researches like mad, the characters are GenreSavvy and the series itself is positively {{Troperiffic}} ''and'' TropeOverdosed. Is it any wonder it has so many?

----
* ''Manga/DragonBall Z'':
** The Mahora-Budokai Martial Arts Tournament is an AffectionateParody of the Tenkaichi Budokai, right down to the shape and design of its arena.
** When [[spoiler:Negi pulls out the Duplex Complexio]] his hair inexplicably grows longer.
--->'''Negi:'''[[spoiler:Let's just call this [[strike:Super Saiyan 3]] Raiten Taisou 2, shall we?]]
** [[http://img834.imageshack.us/img834/6017/1283034352837.png Cosplay or cameo, Goku, Piccolo, and Buu can be seen within the crowd during the opening start of the Tournament]].
** Evangeline's training resort is a clear allusion to the Room Of Spirit and Time, except that one hour in it equals one day as opposed to [[YearInsideHourOutside one-day-equals-one-year]].
** When Dean Konoe explains the world tree's power -- specifically, its wish granting power, it is mentioned that it could not summon a pair of panties; there's even a silhouette of Oolong visible in the background.
** During the Mahora Battle, one student is shown firing his weapon like a Kamehameha (he's even saying "Kameha...").
** After Negi's students first see him use Magia Erebea, one of them asks if he just used the Kaio-ken.
*** Later, his form is referred to as [[YouWannaGetSued Super Sai__an]]
** [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v25/c226/13.html Rakan can throw one of his swords and then hop on it to surf to his target location.]] If you've read Manga/DragonBall, [[PsychoForHire Tao Pai Pai]] does the ''exact'' same thing with a column.
** In chapter 292, Haruna imagines that Fate Averruncus and his allies will be waiting for Negi throughout several floors of the royal mausoleum, with Koyomi and Tamaki on the lowest floor, Shirabe on the next floor up, Tsukuyomi on the floor above that, Dynamis on the next one above that, and finally Fate himself on the top floor. Yūna comments that "That is way too cliché! What is this, ''GameOfDeath''? [[Manga/DragonBall Muscle Tower]]? Yeah, right!"
* ''DragonQuest'':
** Back in the early days of the manga, when Negi and Kotaro teamed up for the first time to fight Graf and the Slime Sisters, [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v08/c069/10.html this exchange]] [[DragonQuest happens.]]
** During the first summer break, when the twins are showing Negi around the school, they directly compare the WorldTree to Yggdrasil (The one from DragonQuest, not the one in NorseMythology that it's named after)[[note]]Also it makes sense that they would need to explain that to him, as at the time that chapter came out, none of the DragonQuest games [[NoExportForYou had been released in Europe]][[/note]].
** In chapter 254, Kurt Gödel makes a WeCanRuleTogether offer to Negi ("I offer you half of the world"), which is very similar to the Dragonlord's offer to the player character of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestI''. The manga [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this with a "yes / no" prompt and a "beep" WrittenSoundEffect in the middle of the panel.
* ''FinalFantasy'':
** Nodoka's treasure-hunting outfit (and the outfit she imagines when proposing that she and Yue join the BattleHarem) both look suspiciously similar to classic White Mage garb.
** Yue is seen drinking a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Last Elixir]] in one chapter.
** In volume 8, there's a minor reference to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', as seen [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/42631/Negima-Vivi.jpg here.]]
** In the bottom right of the first panel on [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v14/c125/8.html this page]], a cactuar apparently runs by while Ako and Negi's "cousin" are on their date at the Mahora Festival.
** There's a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Tifa Cosplayer]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/209-14924-4/mahou-sensei-negima/chapter-91.html in the third panel.]], along with a Yuffie Cosplayer to her left.
** The monsters on [[http://6.p.s.mfcdn.net/store/manga/71/35-322.0/compressed/umahou_sensei_negima_ch322_11.jpg this page]] have a slight similarity to an [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Occuria]] and Cuchulainn's Final Fantasy XII incarnation.
** And of course, Yuuna's [[spoiler:Pactio]] outfit and twin guns calls to mind [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 another Yuna]].
** Nagi's master Filius ''Zecht'' [[spoiler:[[Main/GrandTheftMe is]] [[http://mangafox.me/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v29/c267/8.html possessed]] by [[Main/TrueFinalBoss the Lifemaker]] after he and Nagi defeated him. It is implied that this later happened to Nagi, too.]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Does this remind you of anything?]]
** The [[http://i.imgur.com/EJxcR1H.jpg?1 very last page]] of the manga is another reference to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Final Fantasy X]].
* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'':
** In [[http://mangafox.me/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v16/c149/5.html Chapter 149]] Chao releases lower demons to conquer the World Tree Plaza.
--->'''Misa:'''Gun__ms!? Hey, are those Gu__dams!?
** The sky trucker Johnny Rydain, not to be confused with [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} UC Gundam's]] [[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/Johnny_Ridden Johnny Ridden]]...
** [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v36/c334/10.html Negi and Asuna's]] CombinationAttack against [[spoiler: Lifemaker]] brings to mind ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'' final.
* A "mission failed" screen like those seen in ''Anime/ExcelSaga''
* In the early chapters, Chamo makes a ''{{Pokemon}}'' reference when Nodoka gets her pactio: "Allllright! We caught Nodoka Miyazaki!"
* The "Baka Rangers" reference ''Super Sentai/Power Rangers''
** The same page linked above that has a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Tifa]] cosplayer has Series/JAKQDengekitai and a ''Franchise/KamenRider'' or two in the very next panel.
* Kaede's outfit during her fights in the budokai rather closely resembles that of [[KingOfFighters King]].
* Mei Sakura's artifact is a broom. When it flies it [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v17/c156/12.html gains wings near the back]] like [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura another Sakura's]] fly card.
* After discovering that he's got a time machine in a watch, Negi thinks of the [[Film/BackToTheFuture DeLorean]], the {{Terminator}}, the 2002 adaptation of Wells' ''TheTimeMachine'', and {{Doraemon}}.
* Kotaro Inugami is a shout-out to [[RumikoTakahashi Takahashi's]] ''Manga/InuYasha''.
* A chapter titled "Rakan at 120%" is a shout-out to Younger Toguro from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', who infamously stated he would use a certain percentage of his power, but his ''true'' true power was 120%. Another possible allusion is with the match between Negi and Rakan which rather resembles Yusuke and Toguro's final engagement and more...
* Chisame's personality, infatuation with computer stuff, and pactio all scream [[spoiler: Anime/CorrectorYui]].
* When Nodoka uses [[MindProbe her artifact]] on Mei in Chapter 141, the diary entry read "Eeeek! C-C-Could that be the Legendary [[Manga/DeathNote Death No--]]!? I mean that artifact that reads"
* The interior of Ala Alba's "goldfish ship" looks nearly identical to the [[Anime/CowboyBebop Bebop]].
* Chapter 261: Negi and Ku-Fei's arm wrestling match shouts out to a Sylvester Stallone movie named ''Over the Top.'' Especially Negi shifting his grip.
** Not to mention that during the whole thing, Ku Fei is dressed almost identically to [[StreetFighter Chun Li]].
* ChineseGirl Ku Fei's [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v28/c253/4.html personal requirement]] that only a man who is stronger than she can kiss (or marry) her echoes the cultural imperatives of the Joketsuzoku from ''RanmaOneHalf'' (and ''Comicbook/RedSonja'', for that matter). Some fans are claiming that she ''is'' a Joketsuzoku, and that ''Negima'' and ''Ranma'' take place in the same universe.
* The manner in which cards are drawn from the girls in ''Negima!?'' is similar to the way swords are drawn from people in ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena''.
* Also during the tournament arc, there are several panels of online discussion concerning the techniques being used by the combatants. One of the comments is "We have a [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure STAND USER]]!"
** A user responds with "We have a [[Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei DEVIL SUMMONER]]!"
* A minor character, the mage teacher Seruhiko, was created specifically as a {{Homage}} to ''[[{{Berserk}} Serpico]]'', of all people. Kentaro Miura even approved the character.
* [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo "The sea monkeys have my money... Yes, I'm natural green..."]] (Motsu uses it in ''Negima!?'')
* ''Negima!?'' has a number of references to ''PaniPoniDash''. Most noticable is that the Chupacabra Club resembles Becky's research room.
** A number of the ''PaniPoniDash'' references have to do with Konoka having the same seiyuu as Ichijou, right down to Konoka wearing the same IndianaJones outfit that Ichijou wore in a couple of episodes
* Similarly, in the last normal episode of ''Negima!?'', each of the girls are displayed in an VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey type status screen.
* Kurt Gödel is named after an Austrian mathematician/philosopher most famous for his incompleteness theorems, which state that there is no consistent formal theory in which all arithmetic truths can be proven.
* [[spoiler: Negi]]'s OneWingedAngel form looks like some of the higher-level [[TheHeartless noise]] from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou.''
** To me, it also looks a bit like [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante's Sparda form]] from ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' one and the recent chapter in Negi's dreams shows it looking similar to [[NarutoShippuden Naruto's later fox forms]], with similar drawn eyes and all.
* The age-changing pills are the candies from OsamuTezuka's ''Fushigi na Merumo'' with the effects reversed.
** And they're colored red and blue. [[TheMatrix What is real, Negi? How do you define real?]]
* Paru makes a reference to ''[[Creator/HPLovecraft Cthulhu]]'' when [[spoiler: some giant tentacles were destroying the Royal Guard airships pursuing the [[CoolShip Paru-sama]]]].
* [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v30/c275/14.html Chapter 275, page 15]]. That panel is almost certainly a ShoutOut to the famous DodgeThis [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dodgethis.JPG scene]] from ''Film/TheMatrix.''
* And in the same fight, one chapter later, Misora refers to [[spoiler: Mana]] as a [[{{Trigun}} Human Typhoon]].
* How about [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v31/c278/11.html this]]? It's the [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v31/c278/17.html piston-powered attack]] of ''Anime/TheBigO''!
** Speaking of Rakan and mechas, when he unleashes his skyscraper-sized sword, he references it as the Ship Cutting Sword. That's right, the guy has his own [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars Zankantou]].
* The "Code of the Lifemaker" and the names of Nodoka's adventurer friends are all references to the works of James P. Hogan.
* The series quite possibly makes [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] to its own doujinshi. In [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v29/c264/8.html Chapter 264]], Negi comments about wanting to keep Chisame by his side, with her curt response being "...don't say stuff like that with a straight face. You'll get yourself stabbed by a girl one of these days." In ''Negimaru'', a very.... ecchi doujin series by Studio Kimigabuchi (the same studio behind the acclaimed Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion doujin ''RE-TAKE'') that predates the chapter by several years, Negi ends up getting stabbed... by a crushing-on-Negi (amongst other things) '''Chisame'''.
** It's apparently referenced again in chapter 338, making Chisame look like she's going to be a bit of a stab-happy {{Yandere}}. She even threatens to stab herself and Chachamaru afterwards!
* When Negi first fights Evageline, he is seen carrying around a [[OutlawStar Caster]].
* [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v07/c057/7.html Mokujin]] of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}''.
** Actually, that was first from a MartialArtsMovie movie called "Shaolin Wooden Fighting Men" (or something like that) featuring JackieChan. ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' referenced that for Mokujin, and it's repeated here.
* There are numerous references to Akamatsu's previous manga, ''LoveHina'', not the least of which is Setsuna's school of swordsmanship, the Shinmeiryuu, which is the same as that practiced by Motoko Aoyama. In fact, Akamatsu has [[http://vetus.wordpress.com/2010/03/11/vol-28-29-digest/ confirmed]] that Motoko and her elder sister Tsuroko are indeed -- as many fans had suspected -- making a cameo appearance in the flashback scene in Vol. 4.
** Add to that, that Eishun is confirmed in a Audio Drama to be born Eishun Aoyama (taking his wife's last name when they got married).
** [[spoiler: The [[SealedEvilInACan Cursed Urashima Blade]] appears in a flashback between a young Setsuna and a woman closely resembling Tsuruko. In both [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/love_hina/v09/c000/97.html Love Hina]] and [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v33/c303/14.html here]] the sword is said to have almost wiped out the Shinmeiryuu in the past. What's more, the same chapter hints that Tsukuyomi apparently stole the sword and is currently wielding it, and if that sword is indeed the cursed blade, it could be what's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy driving her insane]], given the effects of that sword as shown in ''LoveHina'']].
** Not to mention the fact that Tama appears three times. Once on a random beach, once drawn by Haruna and [[spoiler: on Chizuru's Pactio outfit]].
** Also, Naru and Seta can be seen in the background during the Mahora-Budokai at one point.
* [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v29/c260/9.html This]], and [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v30/c271/4.html this]], [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gate of Babylon anyone?]]
** The first one, definitely. The second? VideoGame/{{Touhou}}.
** [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v31/c278/7.html Here]] is another example of Gate of Babylon, by Rakan this time.
*** Actually, that attack and his artifact in general more closely resembles Archer's Unlimited Blade Works (especially if you've ever played FateUnlimitedCodes). And once more, KenAkamatsu rocks [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v36/c331/4.html Gate of Babylon]].
** Looks like Yue and Collet have been [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v34/c310/12.html taking lessons from Archer.]]
* Much of the aesthetic designs in Negima (especially weapons, clothing, and magic emanations) greatly resemble motifs used in the VideoGame/GuiltyGear and Blazblue series. Heck! Rakan himself appears to be Sol Badguy with blonde hair and a dirty/funny personality.
** And in chapter 348, [[spoiler:Zazie]] channels Arakune, while she herself is dressed up as a spider.
* [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v20/c183/4.html On this page,]] the 4th panel cameos Itoshiki-sensei, of ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. And bring on the Rule34 on the next panel.
* Apparently, our magically empowered [[MessianicArchetype messianic hero]] decided that he wants to [[DefeatMeansFriendship befriend]] the ArtificialHuman [[TheDragon dragon]] [[NamesTheSame named Fate]]. One can only guess how long it was before Akamatsu yielded to this [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha very obvious temptation]]...
** Well, Negi certainly ''looks'' like a [[spoiler:[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v32/c291/13.html White]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v32/c291/19.html Devil]]]]... he's even got a WeaselMascot (who [[WMG/MahouSenseiNegima may or may not be]] a transformed mage) as a familiar...
* Rakan has a [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v27/c247/14.html move]] called the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Rakan Impact]]. [[spoiler:Somewhat ironic, in [[FreudWasRight more ways than one]], given [[http://vetus.wordpress.com/erebea/#negica what happened when he used it]]...]]
** [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v24/c216/4.html Kotaro's]] response to when Natsumi asked if they could win the [[GladiatorGames Fighting Tournament]]. Heck, he even sports sunglasses which get [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded.]]
** And there's this bit on [[http://mangafox.me/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v37/c335.5/30.html Chapter 335.5]], where there were details about some of the yet-to-be-introduced pactio cards. The quick description on Chizuru's: [[AssShove "The Onion Sword that Pierces the Anus."]]
** If you think that's the end of it, in comes [[spoiler: Chisame, during the Sports Fest Arc, [[http://mangafox.me/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v38/c347/10.html telling him roughly the same line that Kamina told Simon]]...]]
* In [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v28/c258/2.html Chapter 258]], when Nodoka is describing magically created alternate planes, her explination goes something like this: "Alternate planes...traditionally, places "not of this world" where spirits and the souls of the dead can be found. Famous Japanese examples include the Dragon Palace, Ryuugujou and Takamagahara, the land of the gods...and more recently, [[SpiritedAway mysterious towns with public baths found at the end of a tunnel.]]"
* VideoGame/DevilMayCry. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v32/c291/3.html Here]] and [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v32/c291/4.html here]]. BadassLongcoat with folded sleeves just like Dante's coat in 4 and a pair of guns that resemble [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/devilmaycry/images/1/18/EbonyIvory_4.jpg Ebony and Ivory]] (although the white one doesn't look like Ebony, the black one shares the same model with Ebony and Ivory, a modified M1911).
** Another VideoGame/DevilMayCry reference (possibly): [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v30/c274/7.html here]] Setsuna cuts the guy's armor, which falls off only after she click-sheathes her katana. Jut like Vergil likes to do.
* Negi's students have compared Ostia to [[CastleInTheSky Laputa]] numerous times.
* Jack Rakan's [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v25/c229/18.html Rakan Film logo]] looks suspiciously similar to ''[[TwentiethCenturyFox another one]]''.
* The following is from [[http://vetus.wordpress.com/nazenani/#v29 an interview]] with [[ShrugOfGod Ken Akamatsu]] regarding the inner workings of Negima
---> '''Did Misora kiss Cocone for their Pactio?''' \\
It’s unclear, but... [[LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru I was hoping for something more like a receiving of the rosary]].
* Shiratori Yuri was cast as Kiryuu Nanami in ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', who was obsessed over by a boy named Tsuwabuki. She was later cast as ghost-girl Aisaka Sayo in ''MahouSenseiNegima'', who (in the anime) died trying to protect her little sister's tsuwabuki garden.
* The vampires in the ''MahouSenseiNegima'' universe are called Shinso/True Ancestors, a reference to ''{{Tsukihime}}''.
** Also a reference to ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''; Dracula's final form in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' is named Shinso/True Ancestor Dracula in Japan.
* The Shinmei Ryu sword school from ''LoveHina'' exists in both, and Setsuna's origin {{flashback}} in the manga shows her from a distance being escorted by two women who are probably the Aoyama sisters from ''Love Hina''. Also, the MadScientist creator of the RobotGirl comments on how they outsourced for the programming code of her AI, and one of the programmers was from Akamatsu's first manga, ''AI Love You'', explaining how it is that Chachamaru [[{{Tinman}} has emotions.]] The character Mei has the same given name and character design as Naru's half-sister from Love Hina. While in the anime she had the same family name as Naru, the manga never stated, as she was only in one chapter, hinting that the two may be the same character.
** It really veers into ContinuityOverlap at some points, especially with ''LoveHina'', as the whole Shinmeiryu sword school crossed over. The most recent chapter even explicitly mentions both Motoko's family, and a specific exorcism technique has plot relevance in both ''LoveHina'' and ''Negima''.
* Then there's Nagi defeating [[spoiler: the Lifemaker]] with what appears to be a '''[[StreetFighter Shoryuken!]]'''
** Forget that. How about [[http://www.mangareader.net/209-32570-8/mahou-sensei-negima/chapter-264.html Chibi Chui]] giving Negi a Shoryuken at Governer Kurt's ball?
* ''Negima!?'', the AlternateUniverse remake, contains plenty more references to everything from classic video games to 2chan jokes to the horrible animation of ''YoakeMaeYoriRuriiroNa Crescent Love''. A double-reference of sorts is the reuse of the chalkboard jokes from ''PaniPoniDash'', including drawings of Chiyo-chan from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''.
** "[[{{Neuromancer}} It's Wintermute]], holy crap!"
* In the chapter of ''Negima'' that introduces Sayo, the girls of the class are enlisted to hunt the ghost girl, who they think is evil. What weapons do the technology department of the school lend them? [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Proton packs.]]
* [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v14/c126/3.html This page]] of the manga[[note]]unclear in the scan, but visible in the printed version[[/note]]: The stack of books that Nodoka is holding includes ''Literature/LordOfTheRings,'' ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe,'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Concept_of_Anxiety Begrebet Angest]] and [[http://www.amazon.fr/dp/2707157880 Les lieux: Histoire des commodités]].
* Episode 10 of Negima!? has Shichimi quoting [[HellGirl Enma Ai's]] CatchPhrase before she sends someone to Hell. While the Japanese version missed out on making an ActorAllusion (by having Shichimi say the line instead of [[MamikoNoto Nodoka]]), the English dub [[Creator/BrinaPalencia makes up for it]].
* One of the random background images Shaft is so known for has {{Queen}} in their classic Bohemian Rhapsody pose at the beginning of episode 9 in ''Negima!?''
* On [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v25/c230/15.html this page]], when describing the [[TheEmpire Hellas Empire's]] expansion into Ostia, the [[HumongousMecha Giant things]] shown bear a striking resemblance to [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelions]]
* On the same page the crest on the flag looks eerily similar to the one of the Russian Empire or the Holy Roman Empire.
* The [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v26/c233/12.html ending of the movie]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v26/c233/13.html Rakan shows Ala Alba]]. [[StarWars Now where have I seen that before]]?
* Ala Rubra [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v26/c232/3.html consists of seven people.]] Make of that [[SevenSamurai what you will.]]
* The girl in the top panel [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v35/c322/15.html here]] looks [[SuzumiyaHaruhi kinda familiar.]]
* For no reason whatsoever, Asuna seems to be wearing a ''Film/RunLolaRun'' t-shirt in [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v03/c021/4.html chapter 21]].
** Also, Ako wears a ''Anime/ThePlacePromisedInOurEarlyDays'' shirt in [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v09/c076/13.html chapter 76]].
* Although you only see her back, there is a [[Franchise/{{Disgaea}} Pleinair]] cosplayer at the bottom of [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v11/c091/2.html this page.]]
** There's also a [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Mint Adnade]] one at the left.
* Some of Madoka Kugimiya's friends refer to her as [[LuckyStar Kugimi/Kugimin]]
* [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v35/c322/6.html She's just a]] [[Series/KamenRiderDecade passing-by magical girl...]]
** Or [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber and Shirou]] using Caliburn on Berserker.
* Besides the aforementioned Tifa and Yuffie mentioned above, [[http://www.mangareader.net/209-14924-4/mahou-sensei-negima/chapter-91.html this page]] also features [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva Unit 01]] (mid-left of the page); the protagonist of ''KujibikiUnbalance'' (same panel, towards the bottom); [[Franchise/KamenRider Kamen Rider Black RX and Kamen Rider X]], standing alongside the rangers of Series/JAKQDengekitai (second panel); [[StreetFighter Sakura Kasugano]] (to the left of the Rider panel); and the bodies of [[FutariWaPrettyCure Cure Black and Cure White]] (to the left of ''that'').
* Yue is looking kinda like [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Patchouli Knowledge]] in [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v10/c087/14.html this]] scene.
* Mana sounds ''a lot'' like [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Emiya Shirou]] on [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v37/c341/8.html this page]].
** Asuna too, as she gives a variation of [[Memes/{{Nasuverse}} Shirou's infamous line...]]
-->'''Asuna:''' "I've been always worried about when he would get injured, of if he would get killed... [[http://mangafox.me/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v37/c342/13.html But now he won't die even if "he" is killed.]]"
* [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v31/c284/16.html No one sees]] [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Giant]] [[MemeticMutation Naked]] [[ApocalypseMaiden Asuna]]?
* In Chapter 350, Ayaka calls out "Yue-swaaaan!". She must've got that from [[OnePiece a certain blonde pirate]]. She even delivers a flying kick on the very next page.
* In Chapter 352, Asuna uses TheOtherWiki to look up information on Negi.
* In episode 26 of Negima!? There are paintings of Konoka and Motsu [[note]][[CatchPhrase iiiin a good way]] dressed up as [[VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi Rena and Satoko[/note]]. See it [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rena_and_Satoko_3830.png here]].
* [[http://mangafox.me/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v38/c354/14.html Dragon Tooth Skeleton Warriors]]. [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Where did we saw them before?]] [[JasonAndTheArgonauts Quite a]] [[ClassicalMythology few places]] [[OlderThanDirt actually.]]
* Setsuna's mentor in a flashback in Chapter 303, calmly says "[[HeWhoFightsMonsters He who fights with might take care lest he thereby bedoma a monster]]. [[Creator/FriedrichNietzsche And if you gaze forlong at the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.]]"
* In one episode of Negima!?, Mana can be seen cleaning a [[http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/9103/screenshot20120902at405.png gun]].
