A list of references, parodies, shout-outs, homages,... to Pink Floyd.

Anime and Manga

  • Jojos Bizarre Adventure (Part 4: Diamond Is Unbreakable): Protagonist Josuke Higashikata's Stand is called Crazy Diamond, after "Shine On You Crazy Diamond". Due to copyright reasons, his Stand is sometimes called "Shining Diamond" instead, preserving the reference while still avoiding trademark infringement.
    • In that same part, secondary protagonist Koichi Hirose's Stand is called Echoes ("Reverb" in English localizations), and The Dragon to the main antagonist has one named Atom Heart Father (after "Atom Heart Mother"; English localizations shorten the name to just "Heart Father"). There's also a character named Reimi Sugimoto; her first name is an anagram of the Japanese spelling of "Emily", believed to be a reference to the Barret-era song "See Emily Play". Reimi’s dog Arnold may be named after the song “Arnold Layne” from the same album.

  • Similarly, the light novel Boogiepop and Others has a rather important character named Echoes, which, you guessed it, is a reference to Pink Floyd's 23 minute epic, Echoes.

  • A bit character from There's More Than One Way Home has a dog named Pink Floyd.
  • In I Think I Love You, Bill looks through his cassette collection from 1972, which includes a tape labelled "Floyd, Pink."

Live-Action TV

  • Classic Albums: One episode was devoted to The Dark Side of the Moon.
  • The first episode of Only Fools and Horses had a montage of Del Boy trying to sell dodgy briefcases set to "Money". Due to licensing issues, this was changed for the DVD.
  • In the Doctor Who episode "The Age of Steel", the marching of thousands of mind-controlled Londoners to Battersea (referred to by the Doctor as "sheep") echoes "Sheep" from Animals, where the sheep are led into the "valley of steel" to be slaughtered. As a Shout-Out, the episode also features Battersea Power Station.
