  • In the strip from the final issue of Dragon, the Order go through a door labeled "Do not open except in case of parody or other fair use". Behind it are stick-figure versions of characters from various cancelled Dragon comic strips: Finieous Fingers; Wormy; Snarf and Telerie (SnarfQuest); Phil and Dixie; Yamara; and the Knights of the Dinner Table.
  • Larry Gardener (see below) puts in another appearance, this time with friends.
  • In a sequence in which the Order and their Fourth Edition counterparts take on other pastimes, the Vaarsuvii blast Superman with magic, the Durkons handle a certain sparkly vampire, the Haleys plot an attack on Mario, Belkar ambushes a player in a first-person shooter video game, and Roy attacks a cloaked wizard, scattering Magic: The Gathering cards everywhere.
  • In the "Stick Tales" stories, as well as riffing on the source materials, there are the following references:

    Book 1: Dungeon Crawlin' Fools 

    Book 2: No Cure for the Paladin Blues 

    Book 3: War and XPs 
The Demon-Roaches underscore the reference with a light-saber duel in the last panel.

    Book 4: Don't Split the Party 

    Book 5: Blood Runs in the Family 

    Book 6: Utterly Dwarfed 


How well does it match the trope?
