Works that have referenced The Rose of Versailles:

  • Lupin III:
    • The entire Red Jacket episode "Versailles Burned with Love" is an homage of The Rose Of Versailles, to the point it could almost be called a Crossover; only the modern setting technically keeps it from being such, but even that gets explained. The fact that TMS Entertainment did the animation for both Shin Lupin III and Rose only makes the line tougher to determine.
