* Episode 34 is about the Plum class making a musical similar to ''Theatre/WestSideStory''. Additionally, in one scene, Ruby and co. come out in French Revolution-style clothing, with Ruby looking like Oscar from ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles''. Jasper also comes out of nowhere dressed more-or-less like ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' and shooting web out of his paws.

Added DiffLines:

* In episode 1-B, Kanon, Kaede and Komachi wear the same outfits as the Kisugi sisters from ''Manga/CatsEye''.
* The race in episode 5-A is evocative of ''Manga/InitialD'', complete with drifting and ConspicuousCGI.
* In episode 7, after the prison explodes, the song "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by {{Music/Aerosmith}} can be heard. The walk Kanon, Jill and Shouko do after getting out of the burning prison is reminiscent of ''{{Film/Armageddon}}''.
* In episode 16-B, a timer appears on the bottom right of the screen, referencing ''Series/TwentyFour''. Also, the music that plays when Ruby and her friends are being chased by a boulder is a spoof of ''Franchise/IndianaJones'''s theme.
** The ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' reference was re-used in episode 19.
* In episode 25, several Jewelpets [[AbbeyRoadCrossing cross the road]] while Music/TheBeatles' "A Hard Day's Night" plays.
** Towards the end of the same episode, a montage of Garnet working her many jobs, attending a dance audition and being approved by the judges is a clear spoof of ''Film/{{Flashdance}}''; her dance is an almost perfect recreation of Jennifer Beals' during the title song.
* In episode 29-A, the way Shouko and Waniyama's fight is staged makes it seem like a ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' homage.
* European dubs pulled one with the title of episode 30-A: "All The Teacher Iruka's Men"[[note]]the Japanese title is "Look Behind You"[[/note]], a reference to ''Film/AllThePresidentsMen''.
* The M-Kage arc borrows very heavily from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', from M-Kage's costume to Nyangelina's role. The town it's set in is drawn in an obviously American comic book style.
* In episode 33-A, Kanon "burns out" like in Joe's iconic death scene from ''Manga/AshitaNoJoe''.
* Episode 34 is about the Plum class making a musical similar to ''Theatre/WestSideStory''. Additionally, in one scene, Ruby and co. come out in French Revolution-style clothing, with Ruby looking like Oscar from ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles''. Jasper also comes out of nowhere dressed more-or-less like ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' and shooting web out of his paws.
* In episode 37, [[Franchise/{{Rocky}} "Gonna Fly Now"]] plays when Ruby and Opal try to settle their dispute through boxing.
* The second half of episode 38 is a parody of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRg8LjpSG9U this]] sketch from an 80's Japanese variety show called ''Oretachi Hyokin zoku''.
* An in-series shout out occurs in episode 42 when Shouko's team, named "Sunshine", is next to a team named "Tinkle".
* Sapphie's rocket in episode 47 [[{{Film/Apollo 13}} is number thirteen and breaks down in space.]] Sapphie's episodes also seem to have a lot of ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' references, particularly in the field of [[Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra music]].
* How both Garnet and Sapphie are defeated in episode 50 is nearly identical to how Kakyoin is killed in the Stardust Crusaders arc of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''.
* During Labra and Master's battle scene in episode 50, Labra performs an attack similar to Kenshiro's "Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken" from ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''. The opening theme from the anime is played just to drive the reference home.
* The scenes in the mock preview of the final episode have references to ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''.
