Referenced By
Have you ever wanted to see the ultimate list of works where your favourite book or series was referenced or homaged? TV Tropes is a perfect place where to create such a list, or to get as close as possible.

A Shout-Out is something subtle (a name, a prop, a dialogue from obscure cul classic) or something very direct (a title drop or character names known to mainstream culture), which points to another work of fiction. Shout Outs are given intentionally, often because the creators are fans of the work. It can be used for Lampshade Hanging when the characters compare themselves to concrete fictional characters. Take That is a negative Shout Out when the creators want to emphasise how much something sucked.

Referenced By is a reversal of Shout Out and related tropes. It's never intentional for the work that is referenced, which is why it's listed as Trivia — an interesting bit of information we like noticing, collecting, and organizing, but which in itself is not a trope. note 

See also Actor Allusion, Reference Overdosed, Lawyer-Friendly Cameo, Stock Shout-Out and its subpages, Homage, Pastiche, Opening Shout-Out, Shout-Out Theme Naming, The Joy of X, Literary Allusion Title, and Small Reference Pools.
