Removed the Actor Allusion example, because from the way it was written it was stretching the definition a little too thin. Izzy, the group's Spock, is partnered with Tentomon, who's voiced by Jeff Nimoy, who's related to Leonard Nimoy, who played Mr. Spock.

That's an incredibly round-about coincidence at best. I'm pretty sure Actor Allusions are intentional and actively part of the script, so unless Tentomon has a line at some point in the dub about Izzy reminding him of his cousin or something (Bonus points if Izzy sets it up by using the word "illogical"), it's not actually an example.
