A list of Shout Outs in the ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' series.
----
* During the ''Knuckles'' solo comic run, Echidnapolis was routinely swarming with [[Film/ANewHope landspeeders]].
* Early stories featuring Robo Robotnik (later to return as [[MeetTheNewBoss Dr. Eggman]]) and a "good" Robotnik (a kindly veterinarian in that universe, constantly being combated by ''evil'' Sonic and friends) were a pastiche on the [[TheMultiverse DC Multiverse]]. The messenger from the alternate universe is [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} a half-cyborg hedgehog in a biker jacket]].
* One particular example is M, Robotnik's android "daughter." She's a sunglasses wearing android MadeOfIron, who eventually gets her outer shell blown off to reveal a skeletal-looking body underneath. [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Now what does this remind you of?]] To add to it, there's the fact that she looks like a female version of Arnold.
* A supplemental piece of art for an earlier comic was also a {{homage}} to Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''.
* Eggman's rambling in STH 204 is likely a ShoutOut to the hybrids in ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined''.
* [[http://archiesonic.wikia.com/wiki/File:0archie_sugar_queen.JPG Think again,]] [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Sugar-Queen!]]
* In issue #225, Eggman says, "[[Series/TheATeam I love it when a plan comes together!]]"
* In issue 172, Scourge tells Sonic that all it would take for Sonic to be like him is "[[Comicbook/TheKillingJoke one bad day]]".
* In SSS#5, when the young Freedom Fighters think of a name for their group, Antoine suggests the [[ComicBook/FantasticFour "Fantastic Five."]]
* Sonic Universe #29 has Verti-Cal and Horizont-Al singing Scourge a song about how he should [[Film/MontyPythonsLifeofBrian always look on the bright side of life.]] And later on in the issue, Scourge attempts to read a book called [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus How Not To Be Seen]].
** In the Off Panel for issue #30, Al and Cal do their own version of [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory TV Puppet]] [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Pals.]] Cal ends by saying "It was funnier when Creator/GenndyTartakovsky did it!"
* Two members of the Sand-Blasters are named [[Creator/TexAvery "Tex" and "Avery".]]
* [[spoiler: In #234 the newly-roboticised Sally asks Sonic where he was when the brains were handed out, a reference to the [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM SatAm]] episode "Sonic's Nightmare" in which Sonic dreams Sally was roboticised and she says that to him.]]
* In memorium to Antonio Prohias, #127 [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7u9mihEhG1ra3a2yo1_500.png includes a parody of]] ''ComicStrip/SpyVsSpy'' starring Sonic, Knuckles, [[spoiler:Eggman]], and [[spoiler:Shadow]].
* In #38, Sonic is humming the ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' theme, and wondering where he had heard it before.
* In #76, Sonic and Sally rescues three Mobians resembling three of the mains from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo''. They show up again in #79, fawning over Elias.
* Sonic Universe #20, Dr. Fukurokov looks at his destroyed machine, muttering "...Inconceivable... inconceivable... inconceivable..." Tales replies "[[YouKeepUsingThatWord You keep saying that word.]] [[Film/ThePrincessBride I don't think you know what it means]].
* Early (and obvious) cracks at ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''.
* Julie-Su watching ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.
* Rouge "specializes in [[Memes/{{Touhou}} stealing precious things.]]"
* [[spoiler: Crazy Robotnik is a shout-out/meme spamming machine. The most prominent is [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} 2 plus 2 equal 10 ... in base 4]] and of course, "[=snooPING=] AS usual".]]
* At the beginning of ''Knuckles'' #4, Vector appears to be singing a parody of "[[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Under the Sea]]"
* The scientist Dimitri is a reference to the creator of the periodic table.
* In Sonic Universe #66 [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny Bean the Duck]] threw dozens of bombs at a [[GiantMook Dark Gaia Titan]] for [[BerserkButton insulting his bomb making abilities]]. [[spoiler: It didn't actually, it was a lie made by Charmy Bee to get him to attack it. Bean in his rage [[FunnySchizophrenia actually noted that the Titan didn't have a mouth.]]]] When he was dragged away by the other [[TerribleTrio Hooligans]] he told it to "[[Film/TheBigLebowski Find me in the Alps, pal!]]".
* [[AllThereInTheManual The old Sonic Universe blog]] outlined the fate of all the E-100 series robots never seen in the comics proper; there, it was stated that E-117 Sigma infected Gamma with "Zero Viruses" while they were fighting. This is a pretty blatant reference to the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series.
* In ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'' #6, Sonic tries to make up new names for his roboticized friends, and is cut off by gunfire when he refers to Charmy Bee/Charmy Man as [[VideoGame/MegaManX3 Blast (Hornet)]], and Espio/Espio Man as [[VideoGame/MegaManX Sting (Chameleon)]]. He also isn't sure what to think of when he sees Vector, because the name "Vector Man" makes him think of [[VideoGame/VectorMan a trash-collecting robot.]]
