At the end of "Lucha Libre Get Away," the wrestler falls into lava. He gives a thumbs-up just before his hand disappears, as a reference to Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
At the end of "Mansion of the Deep," the player must get past a laser grid. The music and room layout both resemble a scene from Ocean's 12.
In "10,000 Lums Under the Sea," the player will face toads that wear stealth camouflage and tri-lens night vision goggles. These enemies are a reference to the Splinter Cell series.
