** "[[MortalKombat GET OVER HERE!]]". This one is funny for being a recursive ShoutOut. Scorpion's FlamingSkull and [[BuffySpeak spear-chain-whip-thing]] were confirmed to be shout-outs to Ghost Rider. So we have Ghost Rider making a ShoutOut to character who is a ShoutOut to Ghost Rider.

Meanwhile, Blackheart, son of the Devil, shows up and has decided it's time for the old man to step aside for a new Lord of Hell. He summons [[QuirkyMinibossSquad three elemental demons]] to serve him, promising that if they help him defeat the Devil, he'll give them nobility in Hell.

* AllThereInTheManual: The novelization ended with an explanation of how Johnny Blaze got off the murder charges, having "some hotshot New York lawyer" make a mockery of the prosecutor's case. Said lawyer was supposed to be [[Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} Matt Murdock]]. Which is almost certainly a ShoutOut to the original Ghost Rider concept. He was intended to be a Daredevil villain, but it was just too good of an idea.


Johnny Blaze, the son in a [[BadassFamily father-son motorcycle stunt team]], is in love with [[UnfortunateNames Roxanne]], the daughter of the richest man in town. After planning to run away with her, Johnny discovers his father is terminally ill with little time left. [[{{Satan}} The Devil]] (in a {{Cameo}} performance by Peter Fonda) shows up and offers Johnny a DealWithTheDevil. Johnny asks the Devil to save his father's life. Miraculously, Barton Blaze is [[LiteralGenie cured of his cancer]], but dies immediately afterward in an accident because the Devil wants Johnny freed up.
