Other Examples

  • Ansem Retort has occasional Mythology Gags to its sources, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VII, and occasionally Star Wars.
    Sora: I wanna fuse with a talking dog! No, now wait! I wanna fuse with a pantsless duck! Wait, wait...a talking dog AND a pantsless duck!
  • Brawl in the Family has a reference here to this strip's Alt Text.
  • Dragon Ball Multiverse:
    • Someone allowed Sun Wukong to compete in this tournament. No one is safe. Luckily, Tenshinhan looked like Buddha. Guess who eventually defeated the Monkey King in Journey to the West?
    • During U18 Pan's fight with U13 Kakorot, a gag occurs that goes back to the original series. When Kakorot grabs Pan so she can't use the Kamehameha, she simply directs it out of her feet - something only done before with Goku during the 23rd Budokai Tenkaichi.
    • In Chapter 22, Dabura expresses his approval of Beelzebub, saying he'd like to have a son like that; in Sand Land, Beelzebub's father Satan (Lucifer in the Viz translation) looks exactly like, and is even implied to be, Dabura.
  • There are quite a few references to the main Walkyverse in Dumbing of Age (basically a College AU to the Walkyverse):
  • MS Paint Adventures is made of Mythology Gags. Problem Sleuth has lots of Shout Outs to Jailbreak and Bard Quest, and Homestuck in turn references Problem Sleuth quite a bit, along with many of Andrew Hussie's other works. Dr. Brinner even gets a nod!
    • The character of Equius expresses frequent references to Hussie's previous works, which were a lot Darker and Trollier than Homestuck. His lusus is a reference to Humanimals, he is interested in analysing Furry muscle fetish porn as high art (as Hussie once ran a blog doing), and his arc involves Extreme Doormat submission to a clown character to the point where he simply allows the clown to kill him, referencing Whistles, a story about a clown whose Achilles' Heel was obsessive submission to his ringmaster, to the point of self-mutilation.
    • Gamzee, the Bard of Rage, wears a codpiece in his fake god tier outfit, just like the protagonist of Bard Quest.
    • In Rose's room, she has sketches of some characters from Wizardy Herbert, an abandoned novel Hussie had been writing that served as a trial run for Homestuck in terms of feel and characters. It was a Harry Potter-like story about a wizard summer camp that apparently filled with "Homestuckian convolution", and will apparently never be finished because it is too similar to Homestuck. The Running Gag about characters loudly declaring that magic is not real is also a reference to the book. Roxy, the A2 counterpart to Rose's Mom, actually writes the story in the series, though it seems to be the Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff answer to her mother's book Complacency of the Learned. We also get to see a few excerpts of it in the process.
    • Li'l Cal shares his name with an Uncle Tomfoolery Ethnic Scrappy character from Team Special Olympics, which may explain his Pretty Fly for a White Guy appearance.
  • In Raruto Sisepuede, a parody of Naruto Shippuden, Chochimarunote  just quits being evil and leaves the lair, after which Kabutopsnote  ragequits. Now Saskenote  needs to feed Chochimaru's dog and can't find the fodder, so he asks the members of The Heavynote  for help, but they self-appoint themselves as Saske's teammates. When Saske tells them Chochimaru's gone, they jump to the conclusion that Saske killed him, just as a journalist passes by. Cue Gossip Evolution: just a few hours later, everyone in the ninja world thinks everything about Chochimaru's death and the forming of the Heavy went just as in Naruto.
  • Vixen: NYC: In the second chapter, Mari gets a hand modeling gig, a nod to her comics counterpart (who is a model).
