* InternalHomage: In story 14-S3, Starlet mentions that a designer created 28 suits based on the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-Eight_Mansions celestial mansions of Chinese astrology]] - these refer to the suits that appear in the "Stars" clothing gallery (which can be collected during the recurring "Star Secret" event).

* InternalReveal: It takes until Chapter 19 for Nikki and Momo to tell Kimi that they come from another world.
--> '''Kimi''': Wait. What?... You were brought to this world?
--> '''Nikki''': Well, the truth is... Momo and I are from another world. We aren't native to Miraland... It may sound crazy, but I'm telling the truth.

* TronLines: Common among the futuristic-looking Ruin Island outfits and accessories, but special mention goes to the "NR-001" suit, which looks right out of ''Film/TronLegacy''. Another honorable mention would be the tattoo accessory "Quick Lightning," which paints glowing lines all over the doll.

** The Cloud Empire is an amalgamation of thousands of years of Chinese culture, with outfits that run the gamut from Tang dynasty inspired gowns to more modern looking [[{{Qipao}} cheongsams]], but most it closely resembles ImperialChina. Overworld maps set in the Cloud Empire show the architecture is comprised mainly of pagodas. There's a lot of FarEast thrown in, as Kimono-inspired designs (like the "Fragrance Villa" and "Higanbana Princess" and "[[{{Kunoichi}} Maple Leaf Ninja]]" suits) and and Korean hanbok (suits likes "Sweet Hanbok," "Fallen Butterfly," and "Silk Aroma") are categorized under the "Cloud Empire" gallery. The Cloud Empire also includes some ArabianNightsDays, as belly-dancer inspired outfits (like "Tarot Fortuneteller" and "[[PeacockGirl Flying Peafowl]]" and "[[BellyDancer Western Dancer]]") appear in the same gallery as ruqun and modern takes on hanfu.

** The Republic of Wasteland is a bit tougher to pin down. The emblem of the Wastelands is an [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aztec_calendar_stone Aztec Sun Stone]]. Many of the non-suit items of clothing attributed to the nation have bold, geometric patterns (not unlike those produced by pre-colonial cultures in the Americas), and make use of [[BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins feathers and beading]] as decoration. During the Lilith Fantasy Styling Contest, Mr. Joe makes the comment that clothes from the Wastelands "are wild and natural, filled with uncertainties and raw desires." But the style seems to take an equal amount of influence from sources as disparate as modern Bohemian style (floral patterns and headdresses, looser silhouettes) and cowboy attire (bandannas, fringed leather jackets, boots). With the release of Chapter 13 (the first to take place in the Republic of Wasteland) and introduction of the "Pota" tribe as denizens of the country, it would appear that a [[TipisAndTotemPoles mishmash of Native American cultures]] (particularly that of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plains_Indians indigenous people of the plains]]) was a big influence on the [[InjunCountry look and feel]] of Wasteland.

* {{Crossover}}: The Chinese and Japanese language servers have had several crossovers with franchises like Creator/{{Sanrio}} and Music/HatsuneMiku of Music/{{Vocaloid}} fame. The English language server received it's first crossover event in March 2019 with Franchise/{{Barbie}}, where two new suit (and a limited pavilion for players with linked facebook accounts) were introduced to the game.

Added DiffLines:

* PaperThinDisguise:
** Gameplay wise, any time Nikki & Co. need to "dress up to sneak past the guards" or "blend in with a crowd."
** Story-wise, Kimi has a particularly egregious example in Chapter 17. The extent of her disguise during an infiltration mission at a high-class auction in Apple Federal, where she [[spoiler: is currently wanted by the government]], is a tuxedo and a ponytail. No makeup, no wigs, no sneaking around.


Added DiffLines:

* SacredFirstKiss: During an infiltration mission in Chapter 17, Kimi's cover is almost blown when her [[PaperThinDisguise disguise]] begins to slip during a dance with [[spoiler: Reid]]. To distract onlookers, [[spoiler: Reid]] swoops Kimi into a ''very'' dramatic kiss & embrace in order to hide her face. Ever the romantic, Bobo is vocally upset that Kimi lost her first kiss... but Kimi herself is nonplussed about it.
