[[AC:''Just Dance'']]
* [[{{Music/Gorillaz}} DARE]]: The dancer wears a football helmet similar to the one Noodle wears in the offical video. Not to mention the [[Music/MichaelJackson Moonwalk]] at the end (Not in the video itself but hmmm...).
* [[MCHammer U Can't Touch This]]: One long homage to the original video and Hammer in general, not the least of with is the dancer looking like him (including parachute pants!).

[[AC:''Just Dance 2''+''Summer Party'']]
* It's Not Unusual: The routine is largely based on Tom Jones' style of dancing, including the now-famous "Carlton Dance" from [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir The Fresh Prince of Bel Air]].
* Jump: Kris Kross will commence to make ya.[[hottip:*:Actually it's a cover by Studio Allstars, but that couldn't be further than the truth.]]
* [[{{Flashdance}} Maniac]]: Includes the famous running in place from Flashdance.
* Pump Up The Volume: The finishing move is none other than the [[Music/MichaelJackson Moonwalk]] (See a pattern yet?), providing an example of HilariousInHindsight, considering the very next release was the MissionPackSequel ''Michael Jackson: The Experience''.

[[AC:''Just Dance 3'']]
* Party Rock Anthem [[spoiler:Dance-Mash Up routine]]; admit it, you ''knew'' something was up when the normal routine didn't have shuffling.
* Akin to "It's Not Unusual" above, "Apache (Jump On It)" is mostly based on Carlton and Will's routine to the same song in Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir.

[[AC:''Just Dance 4'']]
* Superstition: The dancer bears a ''very'' strong resemblance to the [[Series/DoctorWho Eleventh Doctor]].
* You're The First, The Last, My Everything: One of the dancers looks like Moss from ''Series/TheITCrowd''.

[[AC:''Just Dance 2014'']]
* Nitro Bot: The female dancer is a [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Rei Ayanami]] PaletteSwap, while her HumongousMecha companion could be possibly inspired by ''Anime/MazingerZ''.
* Just a Gigolo: The female dancer resembles [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Jessica Rabbit]], and the opening sequence is a parody of Disney's SillySymphony shorts.
* She Wolf (Falling to Pieces): With her side braid and ice dress, the dancer bares an uncanny resemblance to [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Queen Elsa]] (who would eventually turn up in the games alongside her sister Anna on "Let It Go" in ''2015''), but could also bring the Ice Queen from ''WesternAnimaton/AdventureTime'' to mind due to the golden headpiece.
* Applause: The dancer resembles [[Literature/TheHungerGames Effie Trinket]].
