Shout Out /
The entire series:
- One of the signboard in the First Mission oneshot has a Principality of Zeon sign on it. It's hard to see unless you take a good look at said page.
- The way the YAMA virus makes threats to send the world into a nuclear war is similar to what Skynet would do. The computer it infects also bears some resemblance to HAL
- Rick Bordeau's first introduction in Romania to Jean can be seen as a homage to the Star Wars franchise. Ryoji Minagawa is an avid Star Wars fan, having watched it because it was made by George Lucas.
- Jack the Ripper, a Trident mercenary operative with Orihalcum blades in his arms takes his codename from the British serial killer of the same name.
