* [[invoked]] There's a secret cache (which can give the player [[GameBreaker "The Gainer"]]) in at the unmarked Vitale pumphouse near Hub City Auto Wreckers Wreckers. It is locked with a peculiar mechanism. The mechanism, and the code to open it is [[Creator/LookingGlassStudios 0451]].0451]]. This location was actually implemented by lead level designer Joel Burgess, who called it an "easter egg within an easter egg, within an easter egg." The bloodied, beheaded skeleton on the ground is a reference to ''Snatcher'', which was also referenced in ''VideoGame/Fallout3''. The name of the unique weapon there, "The Gainer," is also a reference to video game developer Steve Gaynor, a friend of Burgess, and Gaynor's appreciation for "a nasty-ass video game magnum."

** Frankly, the ''whole setup'' of the game's story is practically a direct lift of ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep''. It's a future where humanity has been devastated by a nuclear apocalypse, a group of people simply decided to leave the radioactive wasteland (though these guys live underground), and those scientifically-inclined survivors make android slaves that are almost perfect "replicants" of humans to where you can't even tell their identity unless you kill them. Furthermore, many of the aforementioned androids attempt to escape and gain freedom (often having their memories replaced to do so), only to be hunted down by other androids and hired bounty hunters.

** The scene in Diamond City when someone suspected that his brother was replaced with a Synth looks very similar to what happens in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' the first time the Dragonborn enters Markarth -- the guards even still say "There are no Synths in Diamond City" (just replace "Synth" with "Forsworn").

** Robobrains always had elements of this, but the Automatron expansion adds a few more: You have robots with organic brains taken from murderous psychopaths as their central processor with a single cold calculating eye mounted up front. They move around on a tracked chassis and look rather like giant salt shakers. They interpret all orders as a license to kill anything and everything. They also have an electronically synthesized voice. All it would take is for them to scream "EXTERMINATE!" to be exactly like the [[Series/DoctorWho Daleks]].
*** One could go even further and argue that the various "subjects" reactions to being in a robot body being suicidal, with only the most depraved examples of humanity being able to withstand the installation process and then becoming murderous without routine control measures, could be a shout out to ''Film/RoboCop2''.
** The sequence of doors at the entrance to the Mechanist's stronghold is straight out of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. Or possibly ''Series/GetSmart''. Or both.



* In ''Far Harbor'', the player can run into the ransacked base of a group of survivors that had been overran by Mirelurks and other aquatic beasts. The names of the survivors as found in the {{Apocalyptic Log}}s are Bray Husky, Rowan, Luke, and Braun, all of whom match the members of the [[Wrestling/TheWyattFamily Wyatt Family]]. Itís a double reference for Bray because his first wrestling gimmick was known as "Husky Harris".
** The final Husky holotape, simply titled "Holotape", found next to Bray's corpse, laments that "Jeez, this place was impenetrable. We could see anyone coming for miles. Underwater goddamn fish monsters.". Which is very similar to [[Film/{{Tremors}} Burt Gummer's]] lament of a otherwise great shelter being destroyed by unforeseen creatures: "Food for five years, a thousand gallons of gas, air filtration, water filtration, Geiger counter. Bomb shelter! Underground goddamn monsters."
* The Bloodworms from the ''Nuka-World'' DLC bear a strong resemblance to the Graboids from the ''Film/{{Tremors}}'' franchise. Encountering them in the Wild West themed Dry Gulch park just makes it stronger. One of the notes on a corpse even says "I keep hearing things. Tremors or something."
* The three scientists in the Secure Beverageer lab in Nuka-World are all named from characters ([[ThemeNaming the first name from the actor and last from their character]]) in classic Sci-Fi or horror films. First is Rex Meacham, whose name is derived from Rex Reason and Cal Meacham in ''Film/ThisIslandEarth''. Next, Kate Leavitt gets her name from Kate Reid and Ruth Leavitt in ''Film/TheAndromedaStrain''. Finally, there's Kevin Bennell, whose name comes from Kevin [=McCarthy=] and Miles Bennell in ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers1956''.
* The Hidden Cappies of the ''Nuka-World'' DLC is a reference to the "Hidden Mickeys" collection event scattered throughout Disneyland.
** In addition, the [[spoiler:fate of the park's owner]] is a reference to one of the urban legends surrounding Disneyland.
* In Nuka-World, the leader of the Disciples is Nisha, an AxCrazy OneWomanArmy of Indian descent who loves torturing, killing and violence. [[VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel Sound]] [[VideoGame/Borderlands2 familiar?]]

* Also in Nuka-World, you can find a terminal in the Vault-Tec: Among the Stars exhibit with logs written by one [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 J. Hodgson]], who was an unknowing test subject as an employee of the exhibit.



* One of the lyrics in the ''Raider Radio'' song "Baby, Quit Raiding My Heart" is "''[[Anime/FistOfTheNorthStar Bring back the love]] you stole''". Knowing what a huge weeaboo Music/AndrewWK is, this was probably intentional.
** Speaking of ''Fist of the North Star'' references, one of X6-88's combat lines is "{{You Are Already Dead}}."



* If you're fighting Raiders alongside Gage in ''Nuka World'', Gage will sometimes say that they can steal what the Raiders stole and, "the great [[Disney/TheLionKing Circle Of Life]] goes on."
* The Parlor at Nuka-World is a Pre-War theater that showcased cola-themed knockoffs of ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', ''Theatre/TheBestLittleWhorehouseInTexas'', ''Theatre/AStreetcarNamedDesire'', and ''Theatre/SweeneyTodd''.



* The creation of the Synths that you see in the Institute is very similar to Leeloo's re-creation in in ''Film/TheFifthElement''.
* One of the greetings by Proctor Cade (the medical chief aboard Prydwen) happens to be, "[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Please state the nature of the medical emergency.]]" It may also be an {{Actor Allusion}}: Robert Picardo did some voice work for the game as Institute scientist Alan Binet, and Cade's voice actor Dwight Schultz would be best known to fans of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' and/or ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' as Reginald Barclay.

''Film/TheFifthElement'' and the famous construction sequence from ''Anime/GhostInTheShell''.
** Additionally, the mechanized arm that checks over Synths to make sure they don't have any visible errors during the creation process bears a heavy resemblance to Max's camera arm from ''Film/FlightOfTheNavigator''.

* One LoadingScreen for the Rust Devils features a heavily modified Assaultron with a strong resemblance to [[Film/GalaxyQuest Sarris]], especially in the face and back.
* Should you engage Institute synths with [=MacCready=] as your companion, he may call out the enemy type by yelling "[[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 Institute toasters!]]"



* X6-88ís name is a shout-out to the US Navyís 688 or Los Angeles class hunter/killer attack submarine.

* When you visit Diamond City for the first time, you'll meet [[Music/ThePiperAtTheGatesOfDawn Piper At The Gates]]. Additionally, one of Ada's lines is [[Music/TheWall "You can't have any pudding if you don't eat your meat!"]]
** Robobrains always had elements of this, but the Automatron expansion adds a few more: You have robots with organic brains taken from murderous psychopaths as their central processor with a single cold calculating eye mounted up front. They move around on a tracked chassis and look rather like giant salt shakers. They interpret all orders as a license to kill anything and everything. They also have an electronically synthesized voice. All it would take is for them to scream "EXTERMINATE!" to be exactly like the [[Series/DoctorWho Daleks]].
*** One could go even further and argue that the various "subjects" reactions to being in a robot body being suicidal, with only the most depraved examples of humanity being able to withstand the installation process and then becoming murderous without routine control measures, could be a shout out to ''Film/RoboCop2''.
** The sequence of doors at the entrance to the Mechanist's stronghold is straight out of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. Or possibly ''Series/GetSmart''. Or both.
* One LoadingScreen for the Rust Devils features a heavily modified Assaultron with a strong resemblance to [[Film/GalaxyQuest Sarris]], especially in the face and back.
* In ''Far Harbor'', the player can run into the ransacked base of a group of survivors that had been overran by Mirelurks and other aquatic beasts. The names of the survivors as found in the {{Apocalyptic Log}}s are Bray Husky, Rowan, Luke, and Braun, all of whom match the members of the [[Wrestling/TheWyattFamily Wyatt Family]]. Itís a double reference for Bray because his first wrestling gimmick was known as "Husky Harris".
** The final Husky holotape, simply titled "Holotape", found next to Bray's corpse, laments that "Jeez, this place was impenetrable. We could see anyone coming for miles. Underwater goddamn fish monsters.". Which is very similar to [[Film/{{Tremors}} Burt Gummer's]] lament of a otherwise great shelter being destroyed by unforeseen creatures: "Food for five years, a thousand gallons of gas, air filtration, water filtration, Geiger counter. Bomb shelter! Underground goddamn monsters."
* At Beaver Creek Lanes in ''Far Harbor'', the team in third place for the 2078 Bar Harbor Bowling League standings was [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E12TeamHomer "the Holy Rollers"]].
* Vault 118's amenities include an artificial beach, with a large painting of a sailboat sailing on the ocean above it. This can be seen as an allusion to the end of ''Film/TheTrumanShow'', in which [[spoiler:Truman crashes a similar looking sailboat into the wall of the artificial world in which he lives]].
* The Bloodworms from the ''Nuka-World'' [=DLC=] bear a strong resemblance to the Graboids from the ''Film/{{Tremors}}'' franchise. Encountering them in the Wild West themed Dry Gulch park just makes it stronger. One of the notes on a corpse even says "I keep hearing things. Tremors or something."
* The three scientists in the Secure Beverageer lab in Nuka-World are all named from characters ([[ThemeNaming the first name from the actor and last from their character]]) in classic Sci-Fi or horror films. First is Rex Meacham, whose name is derived from Rex Reason and Cal Meacham in ''Film/ThisIslandEarth''. Next, Kate Leavitt gets her name from Kate Reid and Ruth Leavitt in ''Film/TheAndromedaStrain''. Finally, there's Kevin Bennell, whose name comes from Kevin [=McCarthy=] and Miles Bennell in ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers1956''.
* The Hidden Cappies of the ''Nuka-World'' [=DLC=] is a reference to the "Hidden Mickeys" collection event scattered throughout Disneyland.
** In addition, the [[spoiler:fate of the park's owner]] is a reference to one of the urban legends surrounding Disneyland.
* In ''Nuka-World'', the leader of the Disciples is Nisha, an AxCrazy OneWomanArmy of Indian descent who loves torturing, killing and violence. [[VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel Sound]] [[VideoGame/Borderlands2 familiar?]]

* The Nuka-Cola Bottling Plant has a [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory huge river made up of a delicious edible liquid flowing through a factory and which was used to conduct tours for visitors to the factory]].
* Now you can [[MemeticMutation "Praise the Sun"]] in ''another'' desolate (albeit considerably more technologically advanced) wasteland populated by feral beings and backstabbers, since some players have found a [[VideoGame/DarkSouls bonfire]] in the [[http://www.ign.com/videos/2016/08/31/fallout-4-nuka-world-has-a-really-cool-dark-souls-easter-egg Nuka World DLC]].
