* Commander Kahn in a PaperThinDisguise as "Mr X" might be a reference to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "The Computer Wore Menace Shoes", in which Homer assumes the online identity of Mr X, whose image consists of a picture of Homer with a black paper bag with a question mark on it over his head.

** An alien invasion thwarted by music? [[Film/MarsAttacks Where have we]] [[WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine heard that before?]]
** [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Agents are GO!]][[note]]It's also a NASA reference. Betcha didn't see that one coming.[[/note]]
** ''[[WesternAnimation/ABugsLife A Pug's Life]]''.
** The "Sk8er Boi" level is actually a reference to ''Film/TheTuxedo''. Especially noticeable when Linda asks Jack "Hey, is your name James?"
** The Divas having double consonants in their names may be a reference to [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls another girl trio]].
** There are exactly two animals whom you will help throughout the game. [[SamAndMax Make a note of their names, if you will]].
** The hardest difficulty level is played with the Divas, the only female playable characters, and the difference between it and the second-hardest difficulty is that the note maps are identical but reversed, life meter drains faster, and the note markers are smaller. Recall the old quote: "Ginger Rogers did everything [Fred Astaire] did...backwards and in high heels!"
** "Let's Dance" has "You (do some stuff)!" messages that are reminiscent of old text adventure games.

Added DiffLines:

* The plot of "ABC" is very similar to the ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' short "Busy Buddies". It's worth noting that Tom and Jerry is quite popular in both America and Japan.
* The top screen during "Survivor" is quite reminiscent of survival-horror {{Light Gun Game}}s such as ''The VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead''. (Or, ''Resident Evil: '''Survivor'''. '') And if you fail the second section, the cutscene has the protagonist out of ammo, with "RELOAD!" flashing on the screen as zombies creep towards him. Said level is also a glorified ShoutOut to [[VideoGame/DukeNukem another blond-haired-buzzcut hero,]] complete with freakish "end boss" looking similar to an Octobrain.
