tackleGiven that the Nickelodeon Fanon Wiki is full of basically just random, disparate internet users, it should come as no surprise that many of them slip references to things they're a fan of in their works.

    open/close all folders 

    Fanick Scuffle 
  • The movesets in Fanick Scuffle 3 are chock full of references. Let's go down the line:
    • Bagel's Superb Move is a reference to the Shoop Da Whoop meme.
    • One of Web's victory poses has him perform Scorpion's fatality on the enemy. Not to mention the Street Fighter moves he can perform.
    • One of Wario's victory poses has him being tackled by the Mario Bros., who mistake him from the similarly named character in their series.
    • Collector's Superb Move is based on a Scarface quote.
    • Erin's Superb Move is an obvious homage to Black Orchid's most famous move in Killer Instinct. Also, one of her victory poses references The Lego Movie, of all things.
    • Romen's moveset references Dragon Ball Z, Aliens, Injustice: God's Among Us, and Rival Schools.
    • One of Lamarr's victory poses references a certain meme about bikes and people stealing them.
      • There's also a stealthy Five For Fighting reference in his moveset. [[spoiler:His R1 move is named "More Than A Bird", which is a lyric in Five For Fighting's song Superman (It's Not Easy). The move in question is known in real life as a superman punch.

    Krazy vs. Life 
  • Many song references...
    • "Highway to Heck": The title is a reference to AC/DC's song "Highway to Hell".
      • Krazy's quote (referring to Drillhead's idea of protesting the devil so they can get out of Hell): "We can't just shout at the devil, dude." ("Shout at the Devil", Motley Crue)
      • Krop's friend "Dani" lives in California. ("Dani California", Red Hot Chili Peppers)
    • "Night Mares": Jeffrey the Horse Murderer says "it's your f**king nightmare, Jess..." ("Nightmare", Avenged Sevenfold)
    • "D***k D***ing in S***": "Like the Pussycat Dolls said, we gotta "Bleep" that out!" ("Bleep", Pussycat Dolls)
      • The Death Star bleeps out "Death Star" in Krazy's line "I'm gonna party on your Death Star, network executives!" A network executive answers "We don't have any!" ("Party on Your P***y", Red Hot Chili Peppers)
      • Drillhead asks Krop "By the way, where's Dani?" Krop answers "She's singing songs to Drillhead underneath whatever the "morclite" is. ("By the Way", Red Hot Chili Peppers)
      • After seeing explicit graffiti on the wall, Kev says "Y'know what that smells like? Teen spirit." Krazy and Drillhead say that it smells more like "lithium" and "a flower in bloom", respectively. Krop then sniffs and corrects the others - "no, it just smells like red paint." ("Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Lithium", "In Bloom", Nirvana)

    Chrome's Show of Chromeyness 
Oh boy, where do I even start...
  • VECTOR LAND references several creepypastas, games, television shows, etc.
    Curiousgorge 66's Adventures 
  • The entire show mentions soda such as Coke, Sprite, Sunkist, and even Sun Drop.
  • In the show, Gorge owns a Nintendo 3DS. Gorge also has Tomodachi Life.
  • There are also references to actual TV stations in North Carolina.
  • In terms of music, there is some notable music from other movies or years.
    • "Blinded by The Light" by Manfred Mann's Earth Band plays in the episode "Molly The Cougar" in a moving truck.
    • "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by Scorpions plays in the same episode as well.
    • "Abracadabra" by Steve Miller Band plays in "Land of Awesome", along with The LEGO Movie song "Everything is Awesome".
    • "All Day and All of The Night" by The Kinks plays in "The Incredible Shrinking Molly". And so did The Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star".
    • "Who Are You" by The Who plays in "Attack of The Clones" with the Precision F-Strike cut out and replaced with "I really wanna know".
  • The show references other Fiction Foundry works.
  • The Sophie Clone is a reference to another Nickelodeon Fanon character, John The Marksman.
    • Sophie herself got more mentions (and a cameo in Dores' New Plan) thanks to the episode "Payment Problem", in which Gorge receives a Shockingly Expensive Bill of $200 (or $9,999,999.99 in the game of the same name).
  • Gorge even threw in a mention to The World of Coca-Cola (the one in Atlanta, Georgia).
    • Also, Gorge heads to a local Charter building to pay his cable bill (an allusion to Charter Communications).
  • Network TV, mainly The CW, got some references as well.
  • Gorge mentioned the Nickelodeon Fanonverse multiple times.
    • Dores and Timmy also let slip a reference to the Fanonverse.
  • Gorge uses a quote from The Fairly OddParents!: "Lemonade! Get your Ice Cold Lemonade!" Please note that words in bold are omitted out.
    • In the episode "Acting Like Cupid", Cupid as he appeared in The Fairly Oddparents also appears.
  • The Dexter's Laboratory episode "Dexter's Debt" is also mentioned in "Payment Problem".
  • Bedtime Stories reference: "For FREEEE?"
  • Molly the Cougar references Minnie Mouse as seen in the Mickey Mouse short "When the Cat's Away", except the fact that her furnishings are smaller than Molly's house (and much of the cast, including Sophie).
  • In The Movie, Gorge says "I mean, who are they to blame? Canada?", making a reference to none other than South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.
  • The episode "Good Turned Bad" was based off a chat using a Chatzy OC created by Homestar (no, not THAT Homestar).
  • The episode "Filmmakers" has mentions of W.H.E.E.L. Radio and sick patches.
  • Poemwriting has more shout-outs than a regular CG 66 A episode. Examples include:
  • The show really loves getting away with PB&J Otter references:
    • The Incredible Shrinking Molly has a newspaper that says that the main characters of PB&J Otter got turned into giants.
    • In Poemwriting, it's not just a quote Gorge wrote down, but before a Last-Second Word Swap, Chrome was about to say "That's a capital idea!"
    • In Robo and Whale Five's Haunted House, the episode begins with Gorge and Robo talking about Munchy Beaver and Scootch Raccoon (though they didn't refer to them by their names).
  • The episode "Cancellation" has The Barber say "You're too cool... to be twelve. Lock her up, boys!"
  • In Robo and Whale Five's Haunted House, Robo wants to put in an amusement park with zombies.
  • Relative Day:
  • In "Trump vs. Dores", Donald Trump stated that he used to be a host on "that one NBC show". Dores figured out that said show was The Apprentice.
  • Since Trump vs. Dores, don't make Molly angry. You won't like it when she's angry.
    Cartoon Crossover 
  • All the Nickelodeon characters ever created. And yes, that includes new ones.
  • Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards. In fact, episodes about the KCA were one of only few story arcs in the series as a whole. I'm not even joking, seeing how there are FOUR episodes pertaining to the 2014 KCA.
    • Nicktoons Schoolhouse Rock! (a reference to Schoolhouse Rock!)
    This Show of Gorge 
  • Most of the characters seen in the series were also used in at least an episode of Curiousgorge66's Adventures (except for Mimic the Impressionist).
    • Some of the locations and items seen in the series were also taken from Curiousgorge66's Adventures (due to the fact that This Show of Gorge is a spin-off of that series).
