** Episode 3 of ''Gundam Build Fighters Battlelogue'' is just one big shout-out towards ''Franchise/PrettyCure''.


** The Battlelogue series goes even more direct, using a quasi-personality system that effectively lets Gunpla be piloted by actual Gundamverse pilots. The first episode features a battle between [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Char Aznable]] and [[Anime/GundamOO Ribbons Almark]].

*** Later on, when Sei and Reiji reach the All-Girls' Tournament, the bread shop owner that Reiji stole a bread from ''way back in episode 1'' can be seen.
