[[https://twitter.com/warnerjp/status/978194854596497408 This]] ''Anime/BatmanNinja'' trailer includes a reenactment of the "Are you upset?" skit.
** This series made a guest appearance in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsXOmega'', whereas Popuko and Pipimi had an encounter with a God (most likely referring to Creator/MasamiObari), who eventually changes their forms to be more fitting to fight alongside Super Robot pilots... basically turning Pipimi into a more normally drawn girl instead of ''Pop Team Epic'''s bizarre SuperDeformed style (but still with the voice of Creator/KenjiAkabane) and Popuko is turned into a sentient HumongousMecha for Pipimi to pilot.
