Whatever the Mall Fighters are fans of will get this, if not a full crossover.
- There is every kind of store imaginable in the Mall, even extremely specific ones. It's just a matter of when one brings up a certain store. Example: The David Lynch store.
- A large part of Mall Fight 2 was a reference to the Ultima series, notably Martin's soul being put into the Black Sword from the Forge of Virtue, the add-on of Ultima VII: The Black Gate.
- The entire first round of the Mall Fight 2 finale was a massive Madness Combat reference.
- The Hypercube System is a shout out from Tox to the Cube movies.
- The first part of the second round of the Mall Fight 2 finale involved extremely familiar ships.
- Waffles has a cat named Felix.
- The fake cast roll of Mall Fight 2 ended with Orson Welles as Charles Foster Kane.
- Eric is a big fan of That Guy With The Glasses and it tends to show. DAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRK ERIC's name is a reference to the DAAAAAAAAAAAARK HEAAAAAAAAAAART running gag in the second Care Bears review, and the Missingno. arc started around the same time the Entity on Atop the Fourth Wall was revealed to be Missingno.
- The DAAAAAAAAAAAARK HEAAAAAAAAAAART reference gets extremely ironic when Tox (the writer) purposefully confuses ERIC with HEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAART.
- This trope is lampshaded in Mall Fight 4. "CONFOUND THOSE ERIC BOYS! I HATE TOX! I HATE RAN! AND I HATE ERIC! THEY DRIVE ME TO DO REFERENCES!"
- Eric was actually introduced to The Dover Boys by one of the Fighters including the "A RUNABOUT!" clip in a post, and since then the cartoon has been a popular reference on the whole thread.
- Nega Tox quotes OK Go's song "Invincible" when commanding DAAAAAARRRRRRK ERIC to use heat vision.
- The Transit Orb is a very subtle reference to The Transit Kings, a music group containing Alex Paterson, co-founder of the music group The Orb.
- Arnold Layne is an an also very subtle reference to Pink Floyd's song of the same name, Arnold Layne.
- He even collects clothes.
- Research has proven that Mall Fight is composed of at least 25% Homestuck.
- Xot, Futox, Martin and Eric (mainly) were looking for 4 artifacts with different shapes each to resurrect Tox. Later on, those 4 artifacts changed form and turned into gems from a certain game.
- The sun where the Prism of Infinity was located may or may not have been Solaris, the Tyrant Sun
- ...or that Angry Sun from Super Mario.
- Eric's Masamune and DAAAAAAAAAAAARK ERIC's Muramasa are directly from the legend of Masamune and Muramasa.
- Eric has recently ditched the Masamune and now wields an evil black sword that talks to him.
- Hell is a large mix of multiple Hells in fiction, notably Hell from the Divine Comedy, Paradise Lost and the Nether.
- Duff McWhalen was used for a mode of transportation in a flooded Mall, before he mysteriously disappeared and was never brought up again.
- Diablo is a Avid Fighting Game Fan and this showed then he got Megas XLR to perform a Final Atomic Buster like Zangief from Street Fighter during the Giant Robot Fight in Mall Fight 4.
- Also a fan of Law and Order as most of his posts in the Future stage of Mall Fight 4 were just clips of the show.
- There's a reason Eric Draven is a fan of The Crow.
- Waffles is a fan of Vocaloid, much to everyone's chagrin.
- "Seriously, what ever happened to predictability, the milk man, the paper boy, evening TV?"
- "What is the deal with jumping in the air and freezing in a static photo?"
- "The Aristocrats!"
- Knife never gets tired of referencing My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic.
- Hell, Ran made an entire subplot that happened in the MLP:Fim universe!
- The Mall Fighters compare themselves to the X-Men with Diablo as Deadpool.
- The Respawn Matrix is composed of multiple computers, including ENIAC and WOPR.
- There are two Daleks named Edward and Alphonse.
- Heh, propane.
- Monty Python in spades.
- FPV's main weapon, WEAPON ICE FUCK, gets it's name from a failed doomsday device from a Dwarf Fortress let's play.
- Justin said he somehow stole ideas from Mirai Nikki without even watching it.
