'''[[ComicBook/WarMachine James "Rhodey" Rhodes]]:''' [[SarcasmMode No, itís never come up.]]\\
** The film opens the same way as the original film - a black screen intercut with footage of racing cars, while [=McQueen=] goes through his pre-racing ritual.
** During the Demolition Derby, Lightning tells Cruz to "turn right to go left", a teaching Doc gave him in the first film. [[MasterApprenticeChain Much like Lightning at that time]], Cruz doesn't see any sense in his words.
** When Cruz reveals her idolization of [=McQueen=], she says she used to watch him "flying through the air", referencing when Lightning leaped through the smoke during the pile-up in the first movie.
*** A picture of the scene itself can be seen at the museum in the Rust-eze Racing Center.
** Mater is in the pits watching all of [=McQueen=]'s races, showing that [=McQueen=] kept his [[WesternAnimation/Cars2 promise]].
** Hiccup makes Toothless an automatic tail fin so he can fly on his own which makes Astrid reference "Gift of the Night Fury", questioning that he made Toothless one before and he didn't want it then. Hiccup answers that Toothless didn't have a reason at that time, but he does now; he wants to follow and court the Light Fury.
** After Hiccup and his gang bring a Crimson Goregutter on the island, it begins to play with a baby Gronckle Fishlegs is taking care of and accidentally knocks over some pole, producing DisasterDominoes knocking over few buildings, just like at the beginning of the first movie after Hiccup shoots down Toothless.
** The Light Fury's [[spoiler:rescue of Hiccup is framed in exactly the same way as Toothless's rescue of Astrid in the first movie was: the human is tumbling through the air, gets caught, and then looks up to see the dragon ducking its head down to smile at them.]]
** While [[spoiler:being held prisoner by Grimmel]], Ruffnut references her crush on Eret in the second movie (saying that that ship has sailed and she's over him now), and also mentions Fishlegs and Snotlout fighting over her while expressing her misgivings about both of them.
** [[spoiler:Hiccup kills Grimmel in a similar manner to how he tried to kill Krogan during their first encounter [[GivingThemTheStrip (i.e. untying his prosthetic leg)]].]]
** In the epilogue Astrid rushes past Hiccup on Stormfly and looks back, silently challenging him to a race. It's the same interaction they had at the end of the second film, and Hiccup even gives his son a look as if to say: "some things never change."
