Ms. Splosion Man references

#1 Edited by left4doof (286 posts) -

I thought it might be a good idea to make a list of the various references contained within Ms.Splosion Man .

@left4doof: I was going to make this thread, I am only in world two and I have seen several already.
 
  • Star Road - Reference to Super Mario Bros
  • Star Road - It is also Star from Comic Jumper and he will occasionally talk about Comic Jumper while you are there
  • Maxplosion - There is a dig at Capcom, saying Star Road is a total rip off, "who made this game Capcom"
  • Sonic - The glass shell on the first Boss cracks three times in a similar way to Dr Robotnik
  • Halo - Occasionally scientists explode into confetti, this could be a reference to grunts birthday party from the Halo franchise
  • Predator - first level boss battle ends like the last scene in predator where the predator self destructs
  • Nightmare on Elm Street - Mighty Eternal will say "I'm your boyfriend now"
  • Fresh Prince of Bel Air - Ms. Splosion Man will occasionally do the Charlton dance when idling
  • The Shining - The might Eternal will say "here's Johnny!" when he pops through the stage wall
  • Street Fighter - Ms. Splosion Man will do the Chun Li win pose while idling
  • Total Recall - Reference at the start of world 2 where the robot face will open up and then she hands them the head which self destructs
  • Mike Wilford - The wheelchair enemy is called Wilford which is the second name of the developer
  • Pop music - She sings lyrics from several pop acts; Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Kesha, Spice Girls, Madonna.
  • 2 girls, 1 cup - There is a mode called 2 girls, 1 controller
  • Punch Out - I haven't seen it but apparently the last boss is in the style of punch out?
That's what I can think of off the top of my head, I am sure I heard a titanic reference but I can't remember what it was she said.

*EDIT
Actually there is a couple of references in the achievements as well, a ghostbusters reference "what did you do, ray" and a superman reference "you will believe a Ms. can fly" a play on the original tag line for the superman movie.
