Works that are referenced in multiple entries in the series:

  • Doctor Who: To the Daleks' and their "Exterminate!" Catchphrase:
    • Borderlands 1: From Claptrap's New Robot Revolution: It's one of the things Rebel Claptraps yell.
    • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!: In the mission "Eradicate!", President Tassiter has you assemble a new Claptrap that strongly resembles a Dalek to fight an infected soldier. It's called a CL4P-LEK, and sounds just like how a Claptrap version of a Dalek would.

    • Borderlands 3: The Companion is a twofer - It deals fire damage on headshots, mimicking the Firefly perk from Destiny... and has a quote to complete the reference. Similarly to Captain Mal's gun, it's also a revolver-styled pistol that acts more like a semiauto (and visually looks just like Mal’s gun):
      You can't take the sky from me.

    • Borderlands 2: Combined with a Back to the Future reference, the Zer0 skin: "This is HEV-y".
