Works with their own subpages:


Other Works

  • AFK: Unsurprisingly, as a fantasy series the show has many references to famous work in the genre, such as Brenda retorting "I am no man" when taken for male and then removing a disguise.
  • Cinemasins usually reserves quotes from other movies at the end of his videos for his own humorous stingers. However, when he's counting the sins of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he comments how during the film's climax, Peter Quill is wearing his space mask, while Rocket Raccoon wears nothing over his face while flying right next to him. This leads him to say "Is there air?! You don't know!!"
  • CLW Entertainment: "The Truth About Big G" is a reference to the famous "Don't be intimidated" scene from SpongeBob SquarePants, except done with Doraemon characters.
  • The Cry of Mann: Most of Frank's cryptic questions to the callers are references to various H. P. Lovecraft stories.
  • Advertisement:
  • Daisy Brown has more than a few: Between the mention of "Lynks Disease", Alan's namenote , a blue chair that can be seen in some videos, and the general format, it's safe to assume that the creator is a fan of Alan Resnick.
  • Hadriex:
    • In a reading your comments video, Hadriex literally shouts Jack and shows a picture of him. Fitting both because Jack popularized reading comments videos, and the hate comments he was reading seemed to have a hearing problem.
    • In the middle of this review of Genetos one reviewer suggests the possibility of a Roguelike shooter. Cue footage of... Microsoft Word... as a shmups engine... Naturally the player is an @ sign.
  • The Happy Video Game Nerd:
  • The Hobo Bros often jokingly reference other works:
  • Husbands:
    • The characters are talking about impulsive behaviour after Cheeks buys a dog on impulse.
      Cheeks: Well, being impulsive both got us really hot husbands.
      Brady: One time it also got be a tattoo that says "need more cowbell". [slaps his behind]
    • Then, when Brady asks if they can get rid of the dog, Cheeks says that they've already imprinted and "done the whole Avatar hair/braid thing."
  • One of Mike Mozart’s catchphrases is "What were they thinking?"
  • KateModern:
    • It features several Shout-Outs to lonelygirl15. For example, Danielbeast is one of the webcam users hacked by Project Orwell in "The Leak", and the name "Bree" appears on Gavin's "PEOPLE I HATE" list in "The List".
    • Similarly, in "Straight To The Top", Gavin suggests that Lauren could audition for fellow Bebo show Sofias Diary.
  • Kid Time Storytime has Green Bear mistake the title of the book The Lying King for The Lion King.
  • LG15: the resistance:
  • Maddison Atkins features an episode called "Law & Order: Maddison Atkins". Adam can be seen playing Mario Kart 64 in one episode, and Maddison wears a Princess Peach shirt in another. With the possible exception of HTMLvis, all the pigeons' names (chosen by fans) appear to be shout outs: Trotsky, Mini Moon and Lady Gaga.
  • mpn1990 (in a bloodcurdling screaming voice): "Damn you, Action 52! God damn you to friggin hell!" (Planet of the Apes (1968)?)
  • Regular Car Reviews: As a series by two self-avowed weirdo nerds with Master's degrees in English, you bet your ass they're flooded in allusions:
    • To Marty and Moog from Mighty Car Mods in the Veloster review.
    • To Mike Musto of the /Drive Network in the XB review.
    • To Wayne's World in the Delorean review.
    • To, of all things, Undertale, in the Jeep TJ review, with Mr. Regular going so far as to call it "The Toriel of Cars".
      • Undertale pops up a few more times, including in the Barracuda review, a darker reference in the Corolla review, and a recent commissioned skit featuring Undyne commenting on a Hemi Cuda.
    • In one Video, Mr. Regular describes himself as the American Ashens because like Ashens, the viewer did not see his face at the time.
    • The second Honda S2000 review to Final Fantasy VI, as The Roman sings to the melody of Terra's Theme and Mr. Regular refers to the car as the "Final Fantasy VI of cars, it's the car you're supposed to like".
    • The Roman's credits song for the Volvo C303 review is a parody of "Born Depressed", the main theme of the Jimquisition.
    • The credit song for the Callaway Corvette C7 AeroWagon parodies "Rap is a Man's Soul" from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
    • During the Dodge Viper review, as Mr. Regular is winding up for an Author Filibuster about car manufacturers tendency to market their sports models in manual transmission only, he talks about how the companies want to naturally appeal to the MANUAL MASTER RACE.
    • From the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon review:
      "I'm a Dodge Demon, I ruin marriages faster than Overwatch, Fortnite and Splatoon squid porn put together."
    • The series makes repeated reference to the Rules of Acquisition, appearing in several car reviews and a few RCR Stories as well (at least four show up in the Chrysler-Mercedes Merger Story).
    • At least part of at least three episodes are done with Mr. Regular talking In the Style of... Hunter S. Thompson.
    • The "will" in the 2005 Chrysler Sebring review includes a line in which the "guy who writes his will in Comic Sans" leaves his wife Anne his "second-best bed" (a joke only literature and history nerds recognize as a reference to William Shakespeare's will).
  • Thomas Sanders invokes this with his "Shout Out Sunday" series, where he sings a short song using the name of one of his friends or followers and dedicated to everyone with the name.
  • In "I REFUSE TO DIE-Respawn Man (Part 1/4)" by Santoro Gaming, Matt notes that there are many dead bodies of his character in Respawn Man, the video game that he’s playing, and compares it to the music video for "Thriller" by Michael Jackson, which also has many dead bodies.
  • Steve 1989 MRE Info: A framed picture of Kyle Reese from The Terminator is prominently visible on the wall behind Steve whenever he cuts away to a shot of himself.
  • Super Bunnyhop's logo is a modified version of the FOXHOUND logo from Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
  • We the you!: I don't know what that means.
  • World War II:
    • Part 2 of the "Nazis On Crystal Meth" series calls Doctor Fritz Hauschild the Walter White, née Walther Weiss of Nazi Germany.
    • Episode 12 - "The Mysterious Threat to the Royal Navy" opens with Indy giving the date, November 17, 1939, in his usual style before a swirling transition cuts to him giving a campy impression of The Riddler directed at the leaders of Britain and France in the style of the Batman (1966) version of the character.


How well does it match the trope?
