Shout Out: Team StarKid

From A Very Potter Musical

  • High School Musical
    • One of the Horcruxes is a Zefron poster. When Ron tries to destroy it, it says, "You gotta getcha head in the game, Weasley!"
    • Dumbledore even sings a line of "We're All In This Together." (And the crowd joins in too.)
    • According to Word of God, "Voldemort is Going Down" was to be modeled after "Now or Never" from High School Musical 3.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender
    • Voldemort's speech before killing Harry is from the finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
    • Ginny tells Harry, "We kissed at the Yule Ball, and, well, I thought we were going to be together forever . . . but we're not." This is almost identical to what Aang says to Katara in The Ember Island Players (though he refers to the invasion of the Fire Nation).
    • The scene when Ron and Hermione first kiss is the scene between Aang and Katara before the fire nation invasion where Aang kisses Katara. The dialogue leading up to the kiss is almost identical.
  • The sting from Seinfeld plays every time Ron enters a room. This continues in the sequel.
  • Dumbledore's and Hermione's dialogue about what would happen if Harry didn't enter the tournament is from Ghostbusters.
  • "Dragons don't wanna be fed, they wanna hunt!"
  • Harry compares his relationship with Ginny with that of Spider-Man and Mary-Jane.
  • Voldemort quotes Jafar with "How many times do I have to kill you, boy?"
  • Snape's death scene is similar to Yoda's, complete with "There is another Horcrux."
  • When Harry and Ginny dance at the Yule Ball, Harry says, "Ginny... Ginny I'm feeling kind of dizzy." Ginny replies with, "Well, maybe we should stop spinning." Harry then responds with, "We have stopped spinning..." This comes straight from the scene in Anastasia where Anya and Dimitri are dancing.
  • "Oh, Goyle rules!" is a shout out to Billy Madison
  • Harry asks Dumbledore how LOST ends. As AVPM came out before the finale of Lost, Dumbledore responds with, "There are some things, Harry, even I don't know."

From Me and My Dick

  • A Very Potter Musical
    • The Sword of Godric Gryffindor is in Tiffany's box of sex toys
    • Venessa tells Flopsy that "every time I see [Rick] I get these pains in my chest." Ron says this to Harry about Hermione.
  • High School Musical gets quoted a few times; "Get your head in the game, man" and "If we're all in this together, you can bet we're breaking free."
  • Heart monologues about While You Were Sleeping.
  • In the very first scene there is a reference to "Dick in a Box"
  • This being Star Kid, there is a nod to Spider-Man.
  • Big T's call-and-response portion of "Land of the Dicks" is taken directly from the song "Zoot Suit Riot" by the Cherry Poppin' Daddies.

From A Very Potter Sequel

  • Many to the original, most of them being Calls Back.
    • We learn the origin of Joey Richter's headband.
  • More to A:TLA
    • Lucius tells Draco that "Banishment was too merciful a punishment."
    • Hermione says she "can't forgive past [Draco] but can forgive future him."
    • Ron says "That's rough buddy."
  • "Any happy little thought?"
  • "Get those happy thoughts ready, and don't cross the streams!"
  • Lupin complains that the textbooks are so old, they refer to Dementors as "Ring Wraiths"
  • Harry and Ron's conversation when they first meet parodies a scene from Step Brothers.
  • The Patronuses are, in addition to Harry's stag, are Boba Fett, the Green Lantern, and Genie
  • "There's no way we're losing to Slytherin, or Ravenclaw or...Jigglypuff."
  • Goyle, king of catch-phrases: "Who dares disturb my slumber? Get over here! It's clobberin' time!"
  • Per usual, there is an extended Spider-Man analogy.
  • When Seamus is telling a scary story in Hogsmeade, he's telling everyone about a scene from IT.
  • Who knows if this one is intentional, though it certainly seems that way: the Death Eaters' bridge in "It's Not Over Yet" sounds (and staging-wise, looks) very similar to "Ewigkeit" from Tanz der Vampire.

From Starship

From Holy Musical B@man!

  • Penguin: ...more like Le Cage Aux Fools!
  • A reference to the Team's past show Starship appears when one of the mob bosses tells his henchman that, "You make me laugh like nobody else," a direct quote of something Buggette said to Bug in the former show.
  • See if the snozzberries taste like snozzberries... .
  • Lauren Lopez as Commissioner Gordon looks more like Mark Twain, and at one point he talks about writing The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
  • When Robin asks Candy if she is hurt after getting hit by Sweet Tooth, she replies that "it felt like a kiss," which is an allusion to a song by The Crystals. It's also something said by Harlequin about the Joker's abuse of her in the comic 'Mad Love'.
  • "Robin make Batman happy," is a reference to the line "Ursula make George happy" from George of the Jungle.
  • Sweet Tooth's Hannibal Lecture includes the line "Momma always said life is like a bunch of chocolates."
  • To the Ho Yay in Sherlock:
    • Forget Sherlock, the original stories were full of Ho Yay.
    Evil!Sherlock: Now I'll never be able to walk Evil!Watson down the aisle!
  • The "rabble rabble" gag the citizens do may be a SO to a minor recurring gag in the earlier seasons of South Park.
  • "I say we KILL the Bat!" All of the emphasis and the pattern the words are delivered are a clear shout out to Gaston's "I say we KILL the Beast!"
  • Frequent mentions of the heroes wanting to play Nintendo with each other.
  • There are many shout outs to The Dark Knight Saga including, "I won't kill you, that doesn't mean I have to save you", "This town has shown you that's full of people ready to beleive in good" and Alfred saying the Batcave was used to help runaway slaves. Also one of the Gotham citizens has a "I believe in Harvey Dent" shirt. Another has a "Why So Serious?" shirt

From A Very Potter Senior Year

From Twisted: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier

From Apocalyptour:

  • Obviously, as this is essentially a show consisting of new arrangements of Starkid's greatest hits, it's chock-full of shout outs to their previous works. However, there are also some new ones in there, such as the Funny Background Event where Brian Holden, launching into "It's Not Over Yet" from A Very Potter Sequel in response to Joe Walker doubting his plans, force-chokes Joe for not believing in him.
