Other Works

  • 7-Second Riddles:
  • 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.
  • Chris Ray Gun's song "Algorythm" contains the line "Case dismissed, bring in the dancing lobsters."
  • 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.
  • D'Angelo Wallace: In his video "The Disappearance Of Blair White", a video where he analyzes White's controversies, especially her recent controversy with a transgender power lifter. Almost all sections of the video make references to horror (or horror-adjacent) movies, including "The Blaire White Project", "The Silence of the Fans", "The Sixth Chance", "Hoaxbusters", "Hocus Wokest", "Night of the Missing Text", "The Whining", and "Parasocial Activity". This is fitting for a Halloween-themed episode.
  • 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.
  • Formula 1:
    • In the Weekend Warm-Up! 2020 Tuscan Grand Prix video Will Buxton compares the Ferrari overalls to Iron Man due to their coloration. Then goes and calls Mercedes the Thanos of Formula One, due to them being the ones everyone is desperately trying to catch and utterly failing to in the overall points even with the neither Mercedes driver making it on podium at Monza.
    • Alonso's engineer quotes Top Gun in the team radio featured from the 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
    • Sade - Smooth Operator - Carlos Sainz Jr. developed a habit of singing bits of the song over the team radio when things were going well during the 2019 season.
    • Lando Norris has chanted the refrain from FISHER - Stop It ("Moving up and down, side to side, like a rollercoaster") during team radio.
    • In the best of team radio from the 2020 Italian Grand Prix Max Verstappen tells his engineer that they're "Captain Slow" (the nickname of James May on Top Gear) on the straight, before he's told to retire the car due to engine trouble.
  • 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."
  • Jack Vale Films sometimes features pranks involving the Grinch.
  • 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 (1994).
  • 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.
  • StacheBros:
    • In "Episode 1-6 - Voyage to Yoshi's Island" of "Mario & Luigi! Stache Bros", when Mario and Donkey Kong are interrogating Wario for a vehicle to get to Yoshi's Island, Donkey Kong gets him to cooperate by offering him a Scooby Snack.
    • In "Toadsworth's House of Horrors", Bowser references Burger King and its slogan before going inside Toadsworth's mansion.
    • In "The Year Luigi Stopped Believing In Santa Claus!", Luigi receives on Christmas Day a special bell that only believers in Santa can hear. Although Toadsworth says that Luigi continued to hear the bell as he got older because he never stopped believing, Luigi is actually disappointed that this is his only Christmas present.
    • In "Koopa The Quick Saves The Day?", Bowser threatens to make turtle soup out of Koopa if he loses the race. This makes Koopa feel hungry, to which Bowser tells him "No soup for you!", a reference Koopa understands.
    • In "The Day Super Mario Died", Luigi sprays Bowser's eyes with Oxi-Clean, which makes Bowser realize how much he misses Billy Mays.
      • In the same video, Luigi complains that everything has become too perfect without Mario and says his life has become "Little Miss Sunshine", which Peach thought was a good movie.
    • In "Super Donkey Kong Bros", when Mario senses Peach being kidnapped by Bowser, he says "My Mario senses are tingling."
    • The joke credits at the end of "Luigi's Mysterious Attic" credit Bob Hoskins as Mario. Bob Hoskins has previously played Mario in the 1993 Super Mario Bros. movie.
  • 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.
  • Stopmotion Chess:
  • 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.
