Throughout the game, there are numerous references to other sources of media. These are some examples:

  • Princess Kokomo Pine says she wants to see Audrie II at the arbitorium. Audrie II is a man-eating plant from the musical "Little Shop of Horrors"
  • TV Dinnah talks about "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the World" during the boss fight, a reference to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a book by Douglas Adams.
  • The Animal Book has various references. In the dog entry, the description says "..... found the answer to life, the universe and everything!" which is another reference to Douglas Adams famous saga who's third book is entitled 'Life, the Universe and Everything'.
  • Princess Apricot is a reference to Princess Peach.
  • In the bear entry, it says "...Hide the children!" a reference to Pedobear.
  • The penguin entry says that it constantly asked "Dood, where's my car?" similar to Prinnies, from the Disgaea series.
  • The panda entry says "...used its kung fu hustle to beat down the aliens!", probably a reference to Kung Fu Panda.
  • In the Tunesmiths Book in the description for the song 'Brave New World' when remarking about the Universe it mentions ".... the restaurant at the end of it." which is another nod to Adams saga whose second book is called 'The Restaurant at the End of the Universe'. Interesting to note that in the game it refers to the restaurant when describing the Universes length as in it is at the very end of the universe but in the book it is at the 'end' in the context of time as the restaurant is present when the universe destroys itself.
    • The Song "I Like Food!" mentions soylent green which comes from a 1973 film of the same name.
  • The song "Green Jelly" says it "Really ends with an "o", but the company won't get the joke.", referencing the Jell-O brand.
