* ShoutOut: There are numerous references to memes, video games, movies, and luchadores throughout the game.
** A poster in El Pueblucho advertises a lucha libre match between [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask La Máscara]] and [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Mega Hombre]] (Mega Man in his classic jump & shoot pose can also be seen in the brickwork). A hidden room in the church's belfry has ''VideoGame/{{Fez}}'' script advising players to [[spoiler:[[Film/AChristmasStory drink their Ovaltine]]]]. (Speaking of ''VideoGame/{{Fez}}'', the forest has an owl statue hidden in it.)
** You obtain your main, roadblock-busting attacks from a Goat Hermit's [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} "Choozo" Statues]].
** There is bill-board in a level that reads "Las Gemas" featuring [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse The Crystal Gems]].
** A room in the Forest has a mural of [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaI a man striking a skeleton with a whip]]. (Dracula is also one of the opponents advertised in the wrestling match posters.)
** There are statues and wall tapestries in the shape of [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} giant, toothy jellyfish with round nuclei]].
** Sierra Morena, being Jaguar Javier's place, is filled with feline statues. One of them is... the Nyan Cat.
** The town of Santa [[PunnyName Luchita]] is FILLED with them:
*** Posters for bands, lucha libre matches, and local movies: the [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Los Super Hermanos]] tag-team, the [[VideoGame/CastleCrashers Casa Crashers]] band, the movies "[[http://www.mutantblobsattack.com/ Limones Mutantes Atacan]]" (Mutant Lemons Attack) and "[[Disney/WreckItRalph Bust-It Bill]]," [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 a poster of a man in a balaclava with a bunch of churros shoved in his mouth]], a poster for "One night only, [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda EL LINKO]]!" with a luchador holding another one up high over his head while a triangular spotlight shines behind him. The Dead World version has a poster for [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bane vs. Batman]]. You can also see most of these in one place at Combo Chicken's gym. At the top of one apartment building, you can see a sign advertising ''"[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/me-gusta Me Gusta]] Guavas"', while the other sign says "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/grumpy-cat Gato Gruñón]] Brand Cat Food"'.
*** Some children in the plaza are seen [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} pitting their pet critters against each other]].
*** A man garbed in a purple tunic and trapped inside a house says his being there is a stupid mistake, therefore, "[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink I AM ERROR]]."
*** There are also several posters based on Image Macros and one poster featuring "El Destructo Vs. La Bomba", a reference to gaming websites Destructoid and GiantBomb.
*** In the Land of the Dead, there is a "Missing" poster with a picture of [[VideoGame/GrimFandango Manny Calavera]]. The same poster in the world of the living features the [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ikea-monkey IKEA Monkey]].
*** There is a shop called [[VideoGame/VivaPinata Viva Pinatas]]. When Juan switches to the Land of the Dead, the pinatas resemble [[http://skelanimals.com/ Skelanimals]].
*** The house where the dead child resides has a painting of the six characters from ''VideoGame/{{VVVVVV}}''. The same house has, in the living world version, a painting of the "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/three-wolf-moon Three Wolf Moon]]" T-shirt.
*** One of the buildings in the Land of the Living is for the mining supply store, 'Mine Forever'. On its side is a picture of a [[VideoGame/{{Minecraft}} pixelated pickaxe]]. To drive the point home, that same building in the Land of the Dead is a bar called 'The Nether Portal'.
*** One is a little obscure, but there is a poster with 3 luchadors wearing animal masks that says "Call lucha hotline". It's hard to tell at first, but it's a shout out to ''VideoGame/HotlineMiami'', a game famous for its use of animal masks for the main character.
** Another poster reads [[BilingualBonus "Fuerte Malo"]] Who is displayed on said poster? [[spoiler:[[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad.]]]]
** The giant Alebrije is an [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood unstoppable behemoth that chases after you]], and can only be destroyed when you [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1 hit a Gold Axe at the far end of a collapsing bridge, dropping the monster into a pool of lava]]. After that scene, you encounter X'tabay telling you your Princess is in another castle.
** The Dead World version of the Tule Tree has carvings of the tulip-shaped version of Fire Flowers from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld''.
** El Presidente's Daughter and Calaca quote Luke and the Emperor's dialogue from ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' at each other in a cutscene.
** The "Gumshoe" trophy for capturing the Chicken Thief is a portrait of [[Franchise/AceAttorney Detective Gumshoe]] wearing the luchador mask. He even has the PointlessBandAid on his cheek ''on top'' of the mask.
** The Desert has a [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Cactuar]] statue in the background.
** The slope leading to the top of the mountain of Sierra Morena has a [[VideoGame/{{Journey}} scarfed, red-robed figure lying amongst grave markers in the snow]].
** The "El Portero" costumes are references to the outlandish outfits of Jorge Campos, the goal keeper of the Mexican national soccer team for most of the 90's. "Portero" = "goalkeeper".
** At the very end of the credits, you get a screen proclaiming that [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/ProWrestling A WINNER IS YOU!]]]] even with the appropriate sprite work.
** The first [[spoiler:mask piece]] you find gives you the achievement [[VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} Gotta catch em all. ]]
** Near the end of the adventure Juan needs to go through [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} blue and orange swirling portals]].
** The pin-up calendars in El Infierno are set on the month of [[WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror Smarch]].
** Part of the Great Temple theme contains the opening riff of the underground theme from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1''
