Anime: The episode, "Smoke and Mirrors", parodies other animes.
Mirror's hair is a parody of anime characters who have long spiky hair (Goku from Dragon Ball Z, Yugi from Yu-Gi-Yo, etc). Smoke and Mirrors fight with either a giant sword or with their own fist, this parodies fighting animes like Dragon Ball Z.
Smoke and Mirrors talk really fast. This is a reference to anime dubs back in the 1960s and '70s like Astro Boy, Gigantor, Speed Racer, and other animes.
