    • When Lee Pailong is fighting both Yoh and Lenny towards the end, he becomes a dragon and Morty says "exit Lee Pailong and Enter the Dragon" which seems to be a reference to Bruce Lee's movie Enter the dragon and the general character of Lee Pailong is also loosely based on Bruce Lee.

    • zeek has the same name as a zoid from zoids

    • Mortal Kombat: Scorpion The way Lyserg uses his pendulum is similar to the way Scorpion from Mortal Kombat used his serpent (which he launched from his hand).

    • Magneto Just like Zeke wanted to kill all humans and let only Shaman, with superior powers, live, so did Magneto, the arch-nemesis of the X-Men, only with mutants instead of Shaman.
