Of course you may wonder how only one game got SO many ReferenceOverdosed, but, considering its the game, ehrm, about cosplays...

That's to be expected.

Pick one.

[[folder:Just About Anything Else]]
* As the result of the game being (partially) an AffectionateParody of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', the title screen will be enough to evidence the first shout out you meet in the game (apart from the obvious ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterII SONIKKU BOO!]]'').
** Not only that, it also has a lot of cosplayers representing franchises that were originally crossed over in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'': Anime/MobileSuitGundam, Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion, Anime/MazingerZ, Manga/GetterRobo... ''A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-and'' [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute it stars its' own version]] of [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sanger Zonvolt]].
*** Oh yeah: ''Zenka'', a ParodyName of the Japanese pronunciation of the name Sanger (Zenga).
*** How about [[MyHeroZero My]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero]] [[ParodyName Ziro]]?
** It doesn't end just here '''yet''': the name of Alpha is obviously clipped from the subtitle of [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha these series]].
* Erus exploits the voice samples from another doujin game character, Jenny from ''Second Heat''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oK5oIMaHFFI Observe]].
* [[SarcasmMode Ziro loves doing everything all by himself]], [[AssistCharacter so he stacked himself with henchmen!]]
** [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Yun & Yang, complete with their original sound samples]].
** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Of course, as for cosplaying Gundam, Ziro can't go into fight without his private mecha Nataku...]] [[LivingWeapon Or maybe a guy with a mask who serves as one]].
** When he's beaten, Ziro strikes Heero's [[http://webspace.webring.com/people/qk/kuni63/images/heero08.jpg "Mission Accepted"]] self-destruct pose and tries to blow himself up.
* Aside from using their general powers, Erus and Hiso's movesets also include lots of references to specific moments from ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', including:
** Killua ripping out a man's heart in the Trick Tower.
** Gon tearing out a piece of the floor during a fight in Heaven's Arena.
** The Zaoldyecks' {{Battle Butler}}s' [[MundaneMadeAwesome extreme coin flipping]].
** Chrollo using his stolen "Indoor Fish" nen ability.
** Uvogin's [[MakeMeWannaShout brain-shattering]] {{Kiai}}.
** Shalnark body-jacking a random mafia goon with a tommy-gun.
** Hisoka revealing that his Genei Ryoudan spider tattoo is fake.
* Along with using his moveset, Rugal Bernstein {{Expy}} Z-Mega also gains his own version of the Shun Goku Satsu when he powers up into Shin-Z, much like God Rugal did in VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium.

** Little [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Edward Elric sitting on Alphonse]] and holding a balloon.

** Franchise/SpiderMan crouching on the hood of a news van, while two dudes are drinking sake away while wearing Anime/CombattlerV and Anime/VoltesV masks.
* '''Carnival Stage'''
** To the left of the center, you can spot [[VideoGame/SamuraiShodown Ukyo]] wearing nerdy spiral glasses and tossing apples in and out (probably as a shout out to the ''actual'' Ukyo).
** [[VisualNovel/{{Air}} Kanna]], a cosplayer with a [[Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine Dunbine]] mask and the [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam God Gundam]] rounds out the rest.
