''VideoGame/BillyVsSNAKEMAN'', a Web Browser game featuring parodies of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' and other shonen series, is full of references and {{Shout Out}}s to anime, but it doesn't stop there.
!!General Missions
* B-Rank: "Count Pokermans": An obvious ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' reference. Succeed, and you get the message "[[GottaCatchEmAll You count them all]] - Phew...so many more than [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue the first 150]]..."

* "Karate Yes": Replicates the basic training given to Daniel in ''Film/TheKarateKid1984''. Basically, MC Stripeypants ([[Manga/{{Bleach}} Urahara]]) wants you to [[WaxOnWaxOff Wax Off]] and wash his car.

* "St. Flash's Day" and "The Freshest Move I've Ever Seen": Both these quests and their rewards (the Running Man jutsu and the "Floating on Air" theme) are references to the video for "Something Good '08" by Utah Saints.
** A player kaiju named Ham is also a walking reference to this video.
* The [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Tatsuki and Chizuru]] lookalikes are named Sporty and Scary, named after two of the Music/SpiceGirls.
* Venus' ([[Manga/{{Naruto}} Zetsu]]) picture looks like that of a [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Piranha Plant]].

* When you complete the steps required to get Anonymous ([[Manga/DeathNote L]]) to join your party, he cries "We cannot forgive! We cannot forget!", the motto of the internet [[IAmLegion collective]] (or not) of the same name.
* Tsukasa is a double-reference. She starts out as the Tsukasa from ''Manga/LuckyStar'' (along with ''Lucky Star''-themed allies Kagamin, Kona-chan and Yuki-chan[[note]]the latter two are Tsukasa's nicknames for Konata and Miyuki, respectively[[/note]]), but after she levels up, she takes on the appearance of a different Tsukasa...the one from ''Anime/DotHackSign''.
** Speaking of Tsukasa, pairing her up with Yuki-Chan earns you the "[[CharmPoint Moe Points]] bonus", a reference to a speech given to Miyuki by Konata about her [[CuteClumsyGirl clumsiness]] being seen as cute to others.
* With the release of Perfect Poker (itself a shout-out to ''Manga/GambleFish''), a new set of allies have become available. The first one, Potatoes, is basically Sasha from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''.
Most of the jutsus taught by the characters are named directly after the ones that are used by their ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' counterparts. Of those that aren't:
* Fletch's ([[Manga/{{Bleach}} Ishida]]) Archer Style jutsus are named after HeavyMetal bands Music/{{Dragonforce}}, Music/{{Kamelot}} and Music/BlindGuardian.
* Likewise, Shorty's ([[Manga/{{Bleach}} Rukia]]) Kido jutsus are named for Music/{{Slayer}} and Music/IronMaiden, and also one for ''{{WesternAnimation/Metalocalypse}}''.
* When she gets promoted to level 3, Pinky ([[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sakura]]) is capable of teaching a jutsu called "This Fist of Mine" (a play on Domon Kasshu's "This hand of mine..." battle cry in ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam''). [[note]]Amusingly, ''[=BvS=]'' actually has a Domon-like character in "Doughman", and you can learn "This Hand of Mine" from him, but it has a different effect than Pinky's "This Fist..."[[/note]]
* WesternAnimation/MisterT ([[Manga/{{Bleach}} Aizen]]) has "Lucha Libre: [[Creator/MrT Pity the Fool]]".
* Scary and Sporty use jutsus called [[Music/DaftPunk "Harder, Better" and "Faster, Stronger"]].
* At level 3, Lil' Whitey (Neji) learns Whitey Style: [[Music/TheWhiteStripes Seven Nation Army]].
* The [[Film/TheLastDragon Sho Nuff Elixir]]. Drinking one gives you "The Glow".
!![=BillyCon=] Events
* One of the items you can pick up is a Baka Badge, whose item description reads: "It just says '⑨'. Huh?" [[note]]It's a nod to the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' project's resident baka-fairy Cirno.[[/note]]
* At the "Billy Idol" event, a group known as [[Website/NicoNicoDouga MikuMiku Douga]] comes on stage to sing for the crowd, and the lead singer - a skinny girl with long green hair - is modeled directly after [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Miku Hatsune]].
* Winning the Rave gives you the "Manga/RaveMaster" trophy.
* Game Defeater Yuri: ''Anime/ArcadeGamerFubuki''
* High School Girls on Guitar: ''Manga/KOn''

* Those who have "Survived the Impossible" get the option to "Be a Hero", giving you a single action protected against the cruelty of the RandomNumberGod for that map. In doing so, you get a message that says "Rule 17 Broken", a nod to ''Film/{{Zombieland}}''[[note]]Columbus' Rule #17: [[NeverBeAHero Don't Be a Hero]][[/note]].
* For maxing out any of the Z-Skills, you earn the trophy "[[Film/ArmyOfDarkness It's a Trick]]".

* At the "[[FrothyMugsOfWater Juice]]" Bar, there are a bunch of different drinks named after [=BvS=] characters and elements. One of the listed drinks is Rum, but the input box is disabled, and the flavor text next to it reads: "[[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Where has the rum gone]]?"
* Retail is effectively Manga/AttackOnTitan crossed with 11BHK's day job at the Hammergirl anime store.
