* In ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', Gordito quotes part of [[Franchise/TheDarkTower The Gunslinger's Creed]], which convinces Dan to allow him to keep his revolvers. Dark Smoke Puncher points this out, which Gordito responds by noting that he knows an awful lot about The Dark Towers.
** One StoryArc involved the good doctor going through an ancient temple. Shout Outs to ''LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple'' and ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' were inevitable.
* ''Webcomic/AkumaTH'' has plenty of these, taking place in a MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover verse, but [[BigBad The Undertaker]] stands out as one big ShoutOut to... [[CaptainObvious well]], [[TheUndertaker guess]]. Other than the name, his sprites are recolors of Wrestling/{{Kane}}, his evil organization is called [[MinistryOfDarkness The Ministry]], he [[http://www.mgcomics.com/AkumaTh/ATH/index.php?ep=1088370992 uses a chokeslam]] in his first appearance, and his finisher is called the [[http://www.mgcomics.com/AkumaTh/ATH/index.php?ep=1088371113 Super Tombstone]]. Which is like a regular Tombstone, only from ten feet up and [[IncendiaryExponent on fire]]. This gets lampshaded in this first appearance, where Akuma mistakes him for a Kane cosplayer. [[note]]That said, this gets far less excessive after his first appearance, as he gets a more varied moveset thanks to his [[MegaManning specialty]].[[/note]]
--> '''Akuma:''' Nice costume, but Kane doesn't wear a mask anymore...
--> '''Undertaker:''' I'm not Kane. I'm TheUndertaker! And don't you dare say "I don't look like him!"
* A 2005 ''Webcomic/AntiheroForHire'' mentions "[[Series/DoctorWho the Eccleston effect forming across the D-W matrices]]".
* ''Webcomic/ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'':
** Many secondary characters are based on other comic characters, including Elaine of Carbonek, who is [[{{Narbonic}} Helen B. Narbon]], with her loyal knight Sir Bromell as Mell (a [[GenderFlip male Mell]] in the baseline arc).
** Merlin's magical incantations are [[{{Wingdinglish}} English phrases in Greek script]], usually from appropriate 20th century sources. For example, the incantation to [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/2004.htm trap someone in a cave]] is "[[Franchise/WinnieThePooh Both please, but never mind the bread]]". The one to [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0466.htm intentionally initiate a jump to another arc]] is "[[Series/StargateSG1 Seventh chevron encoded]]".
** Merlin's [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/2489.htm rambling when trapped in the Crystal Cave]] include insisting Gawaine is "unbalanced" with gold and silver in the same pouch, and something about oysters, just like SherlockHolmes in "The Adventure of the Dying Detective".
** The superhero arc is an extended ShoutOut to various superhero characters and tropes, mostly obvious (Kingman is Franchise/{{Superman}}, White Night is Franchise/{{Batman}}), but also subtler (one storyline features [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/1752.htm Percivale as Kingman's lawyer]]; no mention is made of a heroic identity, but [[Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} he's blind]]).
*** The space arc's Ancient Greece is also full of superhero {{Shout Out}}s: Hercules is Franchise/{{Superman}}, Arachne is Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}, etc...
** [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/2808.htm One strip]], in which Arthur asks Merlin if there are other groups of people going through the same adventures in different time periods, features ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''[='=]s Sherlock Holmes and ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSherlockHolmes''[='=]s Dr Watson.
* ''Webcomic/BetterDays'':
** The title of Chapter 9, about one of Lucy's peers dating her to get a stab at her mom, was appropriately titled [[StacysMom "Lucy's Mom"]]
** The hospital shown late in the comic is named after singer Grace Jones as an InJoke between Naylor and a friend. Another Jones appearance appears in ''Webcomic/{{Original Life}}''.
* See if you can spot the sneaky visual ShoutOut in [[http://www.biggercheese.com/index.php?comic=665 this ''Bigger Than Cheeses'' strip]]. (Answer: [[spoiler:That's unmistakably a [[TheFarSide Gary Larson]] cow]].)
* ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'' once had a huge number of them, but they have tapered off in recent times.
** ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', ''Anime/DiGiCharat'', and ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' references are scattered all throughout the comic.
** David apparently watches ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
*** Apparently, Taeshi [[http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c35/p4.html reads]] ''Webcomic/LackadaisyCats''.
** [[http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c62/p17.html I'm feeling]] a [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] vibe...
** Lucy's Halloween costume is a shoutout to a genre-shifted roleplay on the forums, where Lucy's expy was a vampire with that exact design.
* ''Webcomic/BlownAway'' features appearances from a [[BlatantLies friendly]] face who likes to go inside [[VideoGame/MineCraft Cubic houses]]
* ''Webcomic/BlueYonder'':
** [[http://www.blueyondercomic.net/comics/1232272/blue-yonder-chapter-1-page-18/ With great power comes high insurance bills]]
** Kevin observes [[http://www.blueyondercomic.net/comics/1332262/blue-yonder-chapter-1-page-34/ he's faster than a speeding bullet, but not that much faster.]]
** Having code-named Jared "Chicken Little", Black Dog [[http://www.blueyondercomic.net/comics/1361050/blue-yonder-chapter-1-page-39/ tells him the sky has fallen]].
* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'': "Oh god, I hope it's not Superman, he's a [[SuperDickery dick]]."
** Also ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/031026c here]], ''Franchise/StarWars'' [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/040427c here]], ''Franchise/StarTrek'' [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/041016 here]], ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/050807 here]], and many, many, many more.
* The small town in which ''Webcomic/BuffetOfLies'' takes place is named for American actor Ted Danson.
* A sort of a ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' shout out appears in ''Webcomic/TheCartoonChroniclesOfConroyCat'' when Doggy is training Conroy how to be a toon. Conroy [[LampshadeHanging comments how it sounds a lot like chakra from Naruto]]. And is immediately [[AmusingInjury hit whit a crow-bar for it]].
* ''{{Chicanery}}'' is overflowing with corny pop culture references. For starters, two story arcs are largely parodies of ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' and ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''.
* ''{{Webcomic/Comc}}'' has a few, including [[https://sites.google.com/site/comccomic/archive/comc31 this]] str'p featuring an XDaysSince sign that is a shoutout to Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'s [[http://xkcd.com/363 example]] of the same trope:
--->'''Sign:''' 38 days since someone reset this xkcd reference
* ''Webcomic/CreativeRelease'', an interactive metafiction webcomic, contains a lot of more or less subtle shout outs.
** Turn 006’s glass shards [[spoiler: and broiler element]] refer to ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum''.
** Turn 006 and 007’s doors, which seemingly each lead to the acquisition of a specific form of magic, refer to the first room of ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''.
** Turn 009’s end card simultaneously refers to Anime/MawaruPenguindrum and Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion.
** Level 01’s title is “[[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia The Scientist, the Witch and the Con Artist]]”.
** Turn 010 is a homage to ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}''. “Minimalist mode: ON”
** Given the number of Shout Outs to Mawaru Penguindrum, Turn 010’s “idol singer duo” may refer to the idol duo “Double H”.
** Turn 016 introduces Etoile, a young boy piloting an entity called “[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Unit 01]]” to defend his world from alien attacks, who wonders why he does it and concludes that he probably just wants to be praised.
** Turn 017 features heavy references to ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. [[spoiler: Look out for scissors!]]
* In Webcomic/CthulhuSlippers there are constant shout outs to Creator/HPLovecraft and other works that reference the mythos such as the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' series in [[http://cthulhuslippers.com/comic/the-necronomicon/ this comic]].
* ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel'' featured a character strikingly similar in appearance to Tyler Durden from the movie ''Film/FightClub'' speaking for the character Ethan with the line "he fell down some stairs" to explain to a doctor the reasoning behind some suspicious facial trauma.
** Similarly, there's a strip where Ethan imagines himself in a "happy place"--a frozen cave with Ted's hated pet penguin, and a giant mallet. The penguin's even panicking and thinking, "...slide?"
** To ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' in [[http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20110919 this strip]].
** A rare subtle example is a small vocal tic for Embla, which according to seasoned gamers is a match for [[VideoGame/SystemShock SHODAN]].
* ''Webcomic/TheDailyDerp'': [[http://dailyderp.tumblr.com/post/37801679647/derpy-so-many-questions-that-i-dont-have-time-to The Daily XKD3RP]] mimics ''Webcomic/{{XKCD}}''. Also, Derpy [[http://dailyderp.tumblr.com/post/37600248618/derpy-i-got-enough-pp-for-this referencing]] the "Substitute" move from ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}''.
* ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'':
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flinx Pip]]. Pip's appearance, general personality and temperament pretty much make him Mab's answer to Flinx's minidrag.
** Also, look carefully at what is exposed of the [[http://www.missmab.com/Demo/Leader15.php Clan Mink]] page. Can't see it? [[spoiler:"Status: [[{{VideoGame/Portal}} This was a triumph! I'm making a note [obscured by speech bubble] success!!]]"]]
** ''[[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Ab_023.php To what the frig kind of book]] [[Franchise/DragonBall does Oolong stock in that library these day]]''!

** The bottom of [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_1448.php this]] page references a scene from ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory''.
** The characters play ''Candy-Land Adventures'' in [[http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_1453.php #1453]] and [[http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_1460.php #1460]]. ''TabletopGame/CandyLand'' is a simple children's game. ''Candy-Land Adventures'' transforms this game into an RPG like ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', complete with rolling dice, fighting monsters, and arguing about the rules. Roles include Peppermint Paladin and Rogue of Red Hots.
** [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_287.php #287]] references ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.
** For some reason, Regina has a [[Webcomic/{{Freefall}} Florence Ambrose]] plushie [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_991.php in her room.]]
** "Demonology 101", Cubi Mind-Abilities, [[http://missmab.com/Demo/Cubi02.php Page 2]] quotes some lawbook. The quote is from the United States Constitution, Article 1, Section 5.
* [[http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=1558 This]] ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'' contains a Shout Out to [[http://pbfcomics.com/?cid=PBF247-Catch_Phrase.jpg this]] ''Webcomic/PerryBibleFellowship''.
* ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'':
** A few [[http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2003-09-13 visual]] references to ''GuiltyGear'', among others.
** If [[http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2010-04-08 that's]] not a ShoutOut to SystemOfADown then I don't know what is.
** [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} "I'm not trapped [in Hell] with you, you're trapped in here WITH ME!"]] The author claims it was accidental. Coincidentally, the same quote happens to be his friend [[Webcomic/CtrlAltDel Tim Buckley's]] forum signature on his own website.
** Dominic's Father's grasp of [[http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2006-02-26 orcish]] bears a striking resemblance to Creator/MontyPython's Hungarian Phrasebook sketch. "I cannot wait til lunchtime" is a direct quote.
** [[http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2008-10-19 This strip]], with "Ghost in the Spell" as an obvious shout-out to ''GhostInTheShell''.
* ''WebComic/DragonBallMultiverse'':
** [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-466.html Page 466.]] [[Film/ThreeHundred That's madness!]]
** The band that plays [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-539.html just before the second round starts]] looks like the cantina band from ''Film/StarWars''.
** When U1 King Kai [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-952.html talks about Namekians' weakness to whistles]], we can see next to him spectators who look like [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Edward Elric]], [[Franchise/MassEffect Urdnot Wrex]], [[Anime/MaiHime Mai Tohika]], VideoGame/{{Catherine}} and [[Series/DoctorWho the Tenth Doctor]].
** Right [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-984.html after the mass resurrection]], several characters from several zombie-related franchises make an appearance, such as [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Claire Redfield]], [[VideoGame/TheWalkingDead Lee Everett, Clementine]], [[VideoGame/TheLastOfUs Ellie]] and [[VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime Fayt Leingod]].
* In ''Webcomic/DragonMango'',
** Mango wishes the goblins would come and take Cherry away '''[[Film/{{Labyrinth}} right now]]'''!
** [[http://dragon-mango.com/comic/chapter04/dm04-15.htm Sherbert School is protected by a game of Tetris.]]
** [[http://dragon-mango.com/comic/chapter04/dm04-22.htm When she hears that the Goblin King is in love with Mango, she asks]] [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} whether he is tall and handsome and a snappy dresser with long flowing hair and a great singing voice.]]
** [[http://dragon-mango.com/comic/chapter04/dm04-32.htm A student says]] that the source of magic is [[Franchise/StarWars midichlori-]] -- and is driven from class.

* ''Webcomic/{{Drive}}'': Skitter's LaserGuidedAmnesia is referred to as like a "bad episode of ''Series/GilligansIsland''".
* The only real recurring shout-out in ''Webcomic/ElfBlood'' lies in Carlita Delacroix, a [[Manga/{{Bleach}} large-breasted dark-skinned catwoman]]. Other shout-outs have included the [[Series/{{CSI}} obligatory sunglasses one-liner]] and a [[Literature/HarryPotter hidden magical community]] with corresponding TakeThat.
* A handpuppet of Grace from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' can be seen in [[http://extras.thewotch.com/?epDate=2008-09-09 this]] [[{{Filler}} filler comic]] of ''Webcomic/TheWotch''
** There are several other shoutouts, mainly to EGS, in the comic. Ivan mentions having a cousin in Moperville, [[LampshadeHanging "where all that weird stuff happens"]].
** And don't forget the climax of one recent story arc. About six webcomics get referenced in a single update.
** And the [[Webcomic/ZebraGirl Maginet]] is used by a magician to spread the word. One of the people shown is wearing plaid and is asking for advice on how to catch a demon girl.
* The top row of panels in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0028.html this page]] of ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'' is formatted like a ''Webcomic/PartiallyClips'' (Rob Balder's other webcomic) strip.
** And, given the [[PunnyName nature]] of ''Erfworld'', it is easier to count pages that ''don't'' have shoutouts to ''something'', explicit or otherwise.
*** One troper lost a bet about five pages without a shout out, because he didn't recognize Sergeant Schlock from ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0059.html this strip]] and the [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0059.html Leeroy Jerkins]] here; but at least he had chicken.
** [[http://www.erfworld.com/book-2-archive/?px=%2F2011-09-06.jpg This strip]] features a cameo by [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} the Weird Sisters]].
* In ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'', the bio pages for Dolly Bird and G-Nat mention that their father was a genetic engineer known as the Somewhat-Below-Average Evolutionary (a ShoutOut to Marvel Comics' High Evolutionary). Another episode features [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=80198 three consecutive panels]] of ShoutOut references:
** First, the strip is set in Kurt Vonnegut's hometown of UsefulNotes/{{Indianapolis}}.
** Second panel features Mell Kelly from ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'', and the Muzak is from the song "Wind Beneath My Wings". ("Did I ever tell you you're my hero?")
** Third panel has a sign labelled "Sciuridae Labs", a reference to ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''.
* In ''Webcomic/FauxPas'', [[http://www.ozfoxes.net/cgi/pl-fp1.cgi?271 Myrtle will not come out]], [[Literature/ThreeLittlePigs not by the hair of your chinny-chin-chin.!]]
* ''Webcomic/FreakAngels'' had this little gem: [[http://www.freakangels.com/?p=70&page=6 "All your forthcoming bone fractures are belong to us."]]
* The webcomic ''Freaks N Squeeks'' has a boy-genius mouse whose full name (used only once) is "Albert Jeremy Nonn". In case you don't get how that's a shout-out, try [[Literature/FlowersForAlgernon sounding out just the first syllable of each name]].
* ''Webcomic/TheFuzzyFive'': The Fluffton P.D. has an [[Theatre/WestSideStory Officer Krupke]]. For extra points, the strip title is [[http://www.fuzzyfive.com/2010/comic/24-hey-look-social-commentary/ Hey, Look! Social Commentary!]]
* In ''Webcomic/GeneralProtectionFault''
** In the climactic battle of Surreptitious Machinations, the [[http://www.gpf-comics.com/archive/2002/07/28 news team]]reporting is WPET, with humans who are analogous to the dogs of KPET in ''Webcomic/{{Newshounds}}''.

** The "[[http://www.gpf-comics.com/archive/2014/01/20 old abandoned junkyard]]" has a sign saying "[[Series/DoctorWho Foreman's]] Junk and Salvage".
* ''Webcomic/GoodGuyComic'' has a visual reference to ''Film/{{Aliens}}''.
* In ''Webcomic/HolidayWars'', AprilFoolsDay makes a shoutout to ''Series/GilmoreGirls'', as seen in [[http://www.th3rdworld.com/web-comic/Holiday-Wars/episode/Holiday-Wars-Episode-38 this strip]]

* ''Webcomic/InWilysDefense'' has tons and tons of shout outs. ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', just about anything else by JossWhedon, ''Franchise/AceAttorney'', ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'', ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'', ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', ''VideoGame/KingOfFighters'', ''VideoGame/FatalFury'', ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', Don Henley, ''Farscape''... and that's just off the top of my head.
* In ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'':
** UsefulNotes/IsaacNewton has a time machine [[Series/DoctorWho shaped like a police box]]. The noise it makes when dematerialising is "[[Webcomic/CaseyAndAndy Jurrrz]]".
** The Death arc has occasional nods to Death of the Literature/{{Discworld}}, most notably [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1008.html this strip]] which has a paraphrase of the bit in Creator/TerryPratchett's author bio about his first day as a journalist.
** Frequent shout outs to ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' in the Fantasy arc.

** Among other things, to various other web-based furry works, ''Literature/WatershipDown'', ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim'', and Music/NineInchNails.
** The afterlife is distinctively based on ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''.
** In a recent arc, a character Richek reveals that he's seen the grim reaper numerous times and considers him somewhat of a friend, but no one else has ever seen him, and he doesn't know his name. What does he call his tall, rabbitty pal? "Theatre/{{Harvey}}!"
** [[http://pholph.com/index_a.php?Strip=206 This]] installment of. The same arc shouts out to ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' again with the fact that Sue is in "Saint Ninian's Hospital.
*** [[http://rtd.vitenka.com/Rtd1/index.phtml?page=98 Obligatory link to the first example of Buster Charlie's dislike of Redwall]].

* ''{{Webcomic/Lightbringer}}'' does it ''a lot''. Main character quotes ''Watchmen'', his friend once dressed-up as a spoiler, and when he asked another character about how can he be sure he don't kill anybody, the answer he get was ''[[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]]''
* Many, many in ''Webcomic/LovecraftIsMissing''. Not only to Lovecraft's own works, but also Creator/RobertEHoward and [[Literature/TheYellowWallpaper Charlotte Perkins Gilman]].
* Lots found in the ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' FanWebComics by [[http://www.entropymax.com/ Entropy Max]], including, but not limited to, ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' ([[http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/7613/nanorr41translation.png sample]]), ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'' ([[http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/513/nanohaso15tr.png sample]]), ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'', ''Anime/AstroBoy'' ([[http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/1826/nanorr31translated.png sample]]), and ''Anime/DaiMahouTouge'' ([[http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/6107/nanoso07translated.png sample]]).
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' features a fair number of shout-outs, mostly to pop culture; see the comic's own page. Just for one, Gary often wears shirts with various symbols from retro TV shows, like ''ReBoot'', as well as newer but still rather obscure shows, like ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko''.
* In ''Webcomic/MobTies'', you can play a fun game called the Mob Ties ShoutOut drinking game. Take a shot every time you spot a ShoutOut on a strip. Just be sure to play it someplace where you can get emergency medical attention very quickly, or you may be dead before you get halfway through the archives.
* In ''Monster of the Week'', Shaenon Garrity's ''Series/TheXFiles'' recap comic, [[http://www.shaenon.com/monsteroftheweek/2014/05/30/05302014/ Mulder's ID photo]] shows him lounging in swimming trunks, just like the ''X-Files'' parody in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
* ''Webcomic/MoonCrest24'' has a few of these here and there. However, the BeachEpisode chapter is chock-full of them. Can you spot them all?
* In [[http://mortifer.smackjeeves.com Mortifer]], when [[spoiler: Lord Artemis]] is explaining his reason for [[spoiler: "removing" Johnathan]]:
--> "He's done no severe crime. technically, he was a good [[spoiler: angel]]. But lust is not a good quality. [[StarWars Leads to jealousy. Leads to anger. Leads to violence.]]
* In [[http://muertitos.comicgenesis.com/d/20050902.html this strip]] from ''Muertitos'', Lafcadio hides in a closet amongst a pile of plush alien toys, including [[UruseiYatsura Lum Invader]], [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Marvin the Martian]], Series/{{Alf}}, [[DoctorSlump King Nikochan]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Dr. Zoidberg]], and [[KeroroGunsou Sgt. Keroro]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' has so many shout outs and obscure references that one has to read the Director's Cut version to find all of them. Shaenon Garrity lists everything from other webcomics to manga to Shakespeare.
* ''Webcomic/NerfNow'''s [[TheRant news post]] [[http://nerfnow.com/comic/185 here]]: "Sigh. [[Webcomic/RPGWorld Times are tough.]]"
* Early in the "A World Without Piffany" arc in ''{{Nodwick}}'', the hapless henchman plummets between realities... passing, as he does, [[Series/DoctorWho a police box with a scarf stuck in the door]]. The author, Aaron Williams, seems to like ''Who'' shoutouts, since he has also had an elven healer mistakenly refer to Piffany as "Romana", and then offer her a jelly baby. (The latter in a parody of the ''Film/DungeonsAndDragons'' movie, where the equivalent character was in fact played by Creator/TomBaker.) A further ''Series/DoctorWho'' parody comes with the wizards whose psyches reside within the Orb of Omnescience; their appearances and personalities come from the Third, Fourth and Fifth Doctors, plus Romana.
* In ''Webcomic/NoRestForTheWicked'', the cat from "Literature/PussInBoots" is named Perrault.
** Also, Red tells Perrault about a plan to get through gates: "[[http://www.forthewicked.net/archive/02-23.html Your huffing and puffing wouldn't blow it down]]."
* ''Webcomic/ThePackrat'' shouts out to ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'' (a reference which synth geeks will get the most easily) and ''SpiesLikeUs''. The author, ''WebAnimation/RetardedAnimalBabies'' creator David C. Lovelace, also declared shout-outs to [=CustomSynth=] and Metasonix, although these aren't shout-outs in TV Tropes' sense.
* {{Pibgorn}} [[http://www.gocomics.com/pibgorn/2007/03/02/ First panel, Edward Hopper]]
* ''Webcomic/PvP'' is rather fond of pop culture and video game references. In addition, [[http://www.pvponline.com/comic/2007/12/13/kringus-risen-part-11 this strip]] was an obvious shout out to the Holiday Wars arc of ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''.
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' is also fond of {{Shout Out}}s at times. Most prominent victim is probably Dune (The booze is life!) though also animes are referenced at times, such as a crazy chick on vespa hitting men at random.
** There's also this shout-out to Evangelion over [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1693 here]]
** Two in [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1996 this strip]]; obviously there's the [=AnthroPC=] shop called Literature/{{Idoru}}, but also "Hott Topik" is selling [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} troll horns]]. [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1998 Two strips later]], in a strip aptly called "Robocameos", Idoru turn out to include [[Webcomic/DieselSweeties Red Robot]], [[Franchise/MassEffect Geth]] and [[LuckyStar Konata]] chassis.
** When Hannerlore collapses due to flu she mumbles [[Literature/{{Discworld}} M'llennium hand and shrrrrr...]]"
**** [[[[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1978 This strip]] is a reference to ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'': [[Creator/DouglasAdams Adam's law]], as well as the sperm whale scenario. This is just one of of many; "Beeblebrox's Gambit" was mentioned in an early strip, for one.
* In ''RustyAndCo'', numerous -- such as a shout out to Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick when they have ArtEvolution. Level 6 is particularly rich, with references to MisterRogersNeighborhood, Creator/WilliamShakespeare, and TheMuppets.
* ''Webcomic/{{Sandusky}}'' contains multiple classic rock references.
* ''Webcomic/SatanAndMe'' has a short imagine spot in which Satan acts out the infamous bloody bucket scene from ''Film/{{Carrie}}''.
* [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20041007.html Here]] [[Webcomic/SchlockMercenary Schlock the mercenary]] travels in [[Series/DoctorWho "A bright, blue box, nice and inconspicuous" which "looked bigger from the inside."]]
* ''Webcomic/{{SERGOM}}'' has a nice reference to the current Twix ad campaign.
* ''Webcomic/{{Shadowgirls}}'' artist Dave Reynolds throws in a lot of these into the book. Some are nods to personal friends, fans of the book, and sources of inspirations.
* The [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20050401.html April]] [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20060401.html Fool's]] [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20070401.html comics]] at ''[[http://www.shortpacked.com/ Shortpacked!]]'' involve a Shout Out both subtle and obvious. They use the same narrative structure as ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'', but with the panels arranged vertically.
** [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20080710.html This ''Shortpacked!'' strip]] may well be a Shout Out to? us.
** And then there's [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20060202.html this familiar]]-[[Webcomic/QuestionableContent looking coffee house]].
*** And a ''double'' ShoutOut [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1550 here]] and [[http://shortpacked.com/comic/book-10/03-the-comedy-laugh/coffeehouse/ here]] between ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' and ''Shortpacked!''. On the same day.
*** And a further ShoutOut to ''Questionable Content'' [[http://www.shortpacked.com/2010/comic/book-12/05-neww-2010-comics/prime/ here.]] See the [=AnthroPC=]?
*** And [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=2079 another]], with Pizza Girl on the pizza box.
* ''Webcomic/SilentHillPromise'': The heroine has a ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' poster on her bedroom wall. ''[[Webcomic/SilentHillPromise Promise]]'' borrows its interactive format from ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures''.
* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'s'' inspiration by ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' is [[LampshadeHanging made obvious]] in [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=59 this early comic strip]].
* ''Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline'' features the occasional shout-outs to the Archie's ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog. In the 250th milestone issue Sally was revamped from her [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100110155215/sonic/images/0/01/STC33-SallyAcorn.jpg original anthro-shift design]] to something that more resembles her [[http://images.wikia.com/stc/images/7/71/Sally_Fletway.jpg Archie]] [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110617063333/archiesonic/images/thumb/1/1d/Sally_Acorn1_001.jpg/165px-Sally_Acorn1_001.jpg design]] (though it looks like something Sega would make). Joe Sushi also wore a [[http://images.wikia.com/stc/images/e/ec/Joesushi.jpg jacket]] similar to his [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100225123959/archiesonic/images/thumb/5/5a/Rotor_the_Walrus.jpg/343px-Rotor_the_Walrus.jpg Archie design]].
** Amy is seen wearing a GreenLantern shirt in one of her solo stories.
* [[http://www.sdamned.com/2008/04/04262008/ This strip]] of ''SlightlyDamned'' shouts out to ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' and ''Franchise/AceAttorney''.
** There are also more subtle ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' shout-outs with some of the speech bubbles fading to red at the bottom when a character is angry.
* Torg from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' is named after the character Torgo from ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate''.
** The elftrooper line from [[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/000914 this]] ''Sluggy Freelance'' strip is a shout out to ANewHope.
* ''Webcomic/{{Smithson}}''
** In Chapter Two, the college radio station [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/smithson/series.php?view=archive&chapter=3524 is playing]] a series of losing EurovisionSongContest entries. While most of them are real, the scene opens with the last line of "[[FatherTed My Lovely Horse]]".
** In Chapter Three, the line "[[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/smithson/series.php?view=archive&chapter=6126 She's a gig, she's roadside, man]]" is fake made-up slang from ''ForBetterOrForWorse''.
** [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/smithson/series.php?view=archive&chapter=7529&name=smithson The graffiti in the steam tunnels]]. [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/smithson/series.php?view=archive&chapter=7608 All of it]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' has things like a security guard who pulls off a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment Of Awesome]] showing up with "CMOA" on his jacket in his next appearance, and a Canadian superhero known as [[Music/WarrenZevon The Werewolf of London, Ontario]]. Also, a villainess learns magic from a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' rulebook, and you would ''not believe'' how often Marvel and DC are mentioned (especially Marvel, because it's...kind of obvious the writer is a fan of Spider-Man).
* ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'': The coupling of "Matt" and "Dillon" is [[Series/{{Gunsmoke}} a rather arbitrary shout-out]] that carried over from the parent comic, ''Webcomic/MenageA3''. However, nobody in the setting ever seems to notice the coincidence until Ruby, who seems to have a fondness for old television, [[http://www.stickydillybuns.com/strips-sdb/magnet_bringing_us_closer lampshades it instantly.]]
* ''Super Stupor'' is pretty blatant when they do a shout out to the TVTropes Wiki itself, in [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust02132009.shtml this]] strip.
* There are plenty to found in ''Webcomic/TokiNoTanaka'', largely to {{Nintendo}} games and exclusively to Japanese media (funnily enough).
* ''Webcomic/TooMuchInformation'' has plenty of sci-fi refs, but the serious ShoutOut is given by Gina Gibs, the mother of main character Ace (who actually is TheAce). Years ago we learned she spoke lots of dialects of four Oriental languages, and has served in the Air Force in Korea as a translator when Ace was little. Then we learned she picked up some other languages 'when she was bored', like Arabic. Then she re-enlisted in the Air Force at the height of the Iraq War. What does she really do for the Air Force? [[http://tmi-comic.com/2009/01/19/stellarportal/ Something else entirely.]]
* In ''Webcomic/UrbanUnderbrush'', [[http://www.lepusstudios.com/uu0138.html the cat]] climbs on a box to feign a dogfight as the Red Baron.
* ''Webcomic/VGCats'' [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=282 rips off]] ''Series/TheColbertReport'', complete with [[spoiler: [[Creator/StephenColbert Stephen]] himself threatening to sue them for it]].
* ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'': [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/priceless/ Priceless]]!
** [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/morecivilized/ A lightsaber would have been much more civilized]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Waterworks}}'':
** [=Urist McWorkman=] is one walking ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' reference.
** Also, there's the [[VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} "Hitmontop"]] worker. In addition to spinning around on his head, he attempts to use triple-kick on Slick. Later, Slick is told to "mash the B button" to stop [[spoiler:one of the goo creatures]] from evolving.
** The sisters Philia and Phobia are [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros two overall & cap wearing plumber siblings, one red and one green.]]
** There's also one to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' when Connie asks José if he's going to use his jetpack to fly around collecting blue coins.
* [[http://www.wcihigh.com/?p=298 This strip]] from ''WCI High'' features a shout-out to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpBkc2jK-6w ''Bambi Meets Godzilla'']].
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' strip [[http://xkcd.com/604/ "Qwertial Aphasia"]] has the AltText "If this were SMBC, the alt-text drawing thingy would be a giraffe hooker fluttering her eyelashes." The following day, [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1565 Zach did just that.]]
** The AltText for [[http://xkcd.com/292/ this]] strip contains one to ''Literature/{{Cryptonomicon}}''.
** The [[http://xkcd.com/574/ "Swine Flu"]] strip has one Twitter message saying, "How long until the Swine Flu reaches me here [[VideoGame/{{Pandemic}} in Madagascar?]]" and another from ''Questionable Content'''s Hannelore.
** Science question {{spinoff}} "[[Blog/WhatIf What If?]]" tosses an AltText reference to ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', at [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/37/ supersonic speed]] naturally.
* [[http://rosalarian.com/yume/?p=1297 This page]] of ''YuMeDream'' is both a ShoutOut to TheTwilightZone and an annoyed fan.
** [[http://rosalarian.com/yume/?p=1570 This page]], as well as others from this section, are [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] to two other webcomics, ''Webcomic/SisterClaire'' and ''[[http://www.evildivacomics.com/ Evil Diva]]''.
** While many of the different styles are [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]], the style that starts on [[http://rosalarian.com/yume/?p=1845 this page]], is a definite ShoutOut to Junko Mizuno.
*** And Disney style in [[http://rosalarian.com/yume/?p=1113 this page]].
** [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer The Cheese Man]] is in the last page of [[http://rosalarian.com/yume/?p=1147 this 5 page update]].
** [[http://rosalarian.com/yume/?p=895 Skleebs]] was a ShoutOut to some fans on the original forum. Unfortunately, it brought more drama than the author anticipated.
** [[http://rosalarian.com/yume/?p=1256 This page]] references another webcomic: ''Webcomic/DieselSweeties''.
* Red Mage of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' has a universe-destroying spell called "Ice-9". This is a triple shout out to the also dangerous substance from the Creator/KurtVonnegut novel ''Literature/CatsCradle'', level-nine spells in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', and the simple naming system in early ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games (Ice-1, Bolt-2, Fire-1, etc.).
** ''8BT'' also has an archer captain... With a second-in-command called Commander [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise T'Pol]].
** Black Mage's [[Franchise/StreetFighter HADOKEN!]]
** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2001/08/18/interlude-02-nor-does-the-fighter-like-the-ninjas/ The ninjas don't knows it yet,]] [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar but they're heads are about to explode from my ultimate swrod technique!]] [[YouAreAlreadyDead Wait for it!]]
** After a few episodes of the second season of ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' aired, Black Mage asked [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2007/10/11/episode-905-in-rod-we-trust/ "Did getting skewered through the chest somehow (and nonsensically) remove all my powers?"]] Thankfully, he did not proceed to turn up in Mexico.
*** The comic referenced ''Heroes'' [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2007/11/15/episode-920-we-could-be-heroes/ one more time.]]
** Thief and Red Mage are betting on whether Black Mage's internal dia/monologue will last five or ten minutes:
--->'''Red Mage:''' Go ten, Go ten, go!\\
'''Thief:''' I'm more of a [[Anime/DragonBallZ Gohan]] guy.
** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2006/01/21/episode-651-thief-of-time/ When]] Thief [[ImpossibleThief stole his class change from the future]] the title of the strip was ''Discworld/ThiefOfTime''.
** From [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2004/10/21/episode-473-this-is-the-most-uncomfortable-ice-prison-ive-ever-been-in/ this strip]]:
--->'''Red Mage:''' Black Mage, initiate Plan 9.\\
'''Black Mage:''' [[Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace From Outer Space?]]\\
'''Red Mage:''' The same.
*** From the same strip:
--->'''[[spoiler:Kary:]]''' I'm living fire. You didn't think it was going to be that easy, did you?\\
'''Red Mage:''' You know, for a second there, [[Film/KillBill yeah, I kinda did]].
** Black Mage [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2006/02/02/episode-656-simply-stunning/ once]] mentioned that he used to like black robes, but "they were killed by that play, '''[[Film/TheMatrix The Magics]]'''."
** "[[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2002/04/24/episode-142-if-you-recognize-both-quotes-you-need-to-get-out-more-often/ So we've struck him down only to make him become]] '''[[Franchise/StarWars more powerful than we could possibly imagine]]'''?!"
** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/11/22/episode-356-that-was-your-whole-plan-i-like-it-it-was-scientific/ the title of this comic]] is a shout out to the first ''Film/Ghostbusters'' film.
** Early on there were numerous references to old ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' dialogue.
*** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2002/07/08/episode-170-outside-the-mysterious-cave/ Dental plan!]]
** The film, ''Film/OBrotherWhereArtThou'', gets more than a few gags [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2002/07/26/episode-177-the-first-side-quest/ lifted from it]]. Later Thief gets turned into a toad...
** Darko takes the form of [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Magus]] to talk to Black Mage.
** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2005/11/15/episode-624-undead-dinosaur-comics/ Undead]] Webcomic/DinosaurComics
** Is it just me, or should [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII FFVII]] fans find [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2009/05/07/episode-1125-unexpected/ this scene]] [[http://board8.wikia.com/wiki/File:Aeris_CH.jpg disturbingly familiar?]]
** The opening segment of the epilogue is an obvious shout out to ComicBook/KingdomCome
** And in [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/05/08/episode-282-a-new-foe/ one strip,]] prior to a mass stabbing, Red Mage tells the victim that the Light Warriors are "gonna get [[Theatre/JuliusCaesar Ides of March]] on your ass."
** In [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/05/20/episode-284-what-could-it-be/ this strip]] when Drizz'l describes the true guardian of Marsh Cave, Black Mage imagines [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Trogdor]].
** Fans of a [[VideoGame/MegaMan certain other game series]] should find [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2004/05/04/episode-416-stabicron/ Fighter's helmet]] very familiar.
** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2004/12/11/episode-490-going-up/ And in this strip]]:
--->'''Red Mage:''' [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Love, hate, clouds,]] *thud*.
** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2006/06/27/episode-713-give-me-a-sign/ This strip]] makes another ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' reference - one Black Mage hilariously subverts.
** The FinalBoss, Chaos, has [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Fomortiis']] head.
** When Red Mage tells Fighter to "Make your swords as things unto chainsaws", the card he uses to do it is an {{Exalted}} charm-tree card; the name and effect refer to a (now fixed) exploit with Exalted's Glorious Solar Saber charm where you could theoretically conjure a sword capable of making infinite attacks in a single second, which fans affectionately called the Glorious Chainsaw Method.
** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2001/10/03/episode-083-a-shout-out-to-all-you-web-heads-out-there/ The strip]] where Dr Swordopolis asks Fighter "Did you choose the sword, or did the sword choose you?" is titled "A ShoutOut to All You [[SpiderMan Web-Heads]] Out There", presumably referencing Creator/JMichaelStraczynski's "Did the spider choose you?" storyline.
** In the [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/8-bit-theater/ Epilogue]], Akbar's Not-Useless Tools has among its implements for sale a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII buster sword]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII gunblade]], while one of the notices Fighter reads on the quest board is a recruitment notice for [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII SOLDIER]], (Black Mage: "Lame"), [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII repelling Galbadian aggression]] ("somehow even lamer"), [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX the search for a missing Alexandrian princess]] (BM gets interested, but they already got a Black Mage), [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX escorting a religious pilgrimage]] ("I'd rather chew my own neck off.") and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI join the fight against Shadowlord.]]
** And than there was [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2005/09/17/episode-600-lots-of-fantasy-settings-have-a-north/ this]] comic which referred to the too short-lasting Ninth Series/DoctorWho along with the famous Sixth.
** There's also the title of episode 158: [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Unfamiliar Ceiling]]
** [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2006/01/07/episode-645-glitter-boy/ Episode 645]]-- Red Mage explains where they get their new powers from:
---> '''Red Mage''': But now we've ventured into an expansion. All-new, ''Absurdly'' powerful Occupational Character Classes are now available!
---> '''Black Mage''': And where does this alleged power creep come from?
---> '''Red Mage''': '''{{TabletopGame/Rifts}}''' in Space-Time, mostly.
** Brian Clevinger shows up in [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2002/03/06/episode-124-im-the-master-of-8-bit-perspective/ Episode 124]] wearing a {{Music/KMFDM}} shirt.

** The last lines in [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/04/08/episode-270-fighter-morissette/ this strip]] [[WaxingLyrical sure sound familiar]]... (The title spells it out if it isn't obvious already.)
-->'''Fighter''': [[Music/AlanisMorissette Isn't it ironic]] to yell the word "silence"?
-->'''Drizz'l''': [[Music/AlanisMorissette Like the good advice you didn't take?]]
-->'''Fighter''': [[Music/AlanisMorissette Don't you think?]]
-->'''Drizz'l''': You don't pick up sub-text, do you?
* ''[[Webcomic/TwentyFirstCenturyFox 21st Century Fox]]'' is full of various references and shout outs, to the point we'd need an entire page just to list them. The most common ones include classic songs ("White Cliffs of Dover"), various SciFi movies and the works of Creator/GilbertAndSullivan.
* ''Webcomic/{{Irrelevator}}'' references [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=995 this scene]] from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' in [[http://i.imgur.com/r1qNHRz.gif comic 26.]]
