    I prefer to watch TV.
  • There is a event quest called "It's dangerous to go alone, Take this!" or something like that.

    Ones I can think of off the top of my head:
    - Icebloom's Let It Snow is a reference to the popular Christmas carol by the same name.
    - Grog-Gnog's name is a reference to both Grog and Gnog, popular drinks around Christmas time.
    - Grog-Gnog's Snow Day is a reference to snow days. In school.
    - Grog-Gnog's Two Heads Are Better Than One passive is a reference to the saying by the same name. The saying 'Two heads are better than one' means it's better to have two people working on something rather than one alone.
    - Koros' Heads or Tails is a reference to the practice of tossing a two-sided coin to choose between two tough choices.
    - Tsume is a reference to typical Oni Demons.
    - Nitpick's Valentines Day skin is a reference to Cupid.
    - Malice's Gluttony passive is a reference to the deadly sin by the same name.
    - Zen's name is a reference to zen, a mental state of peace and tranquility.
    - Bovus in general is a reference to bullfighting, which was popularized in Mexico. His name, El Doro, Epic weapon and it's parts are in Spanish, and of course, he's a bull.
    - Pontifex Mortis' name is a reference to two things. Pontifex is a type of priest, and mortis is Latin for dead.
    - Ponti's Grave Digger is a reference to the act of digging up bones or bodies in search of riches.
    - Hopper was released around Easter. While Hopper herself doesn't have any Easter-themed Passives or abilities, the fact she is a bunny and released on Easter is a reference to the Easter Bunny.
    - Hopper's design was molded around the 'cute but evil' TV trope.
    - When Sifu Jianzhi uses Feet of Fury, a typical musical note plays commonly associated with American Kung-Fu movies.
    - The holiday skins for Icebloom and Rogar are based off of Mrs and Mr Claus, respectively, Willow's is based off one of Santa's elves, Lupina's is based off of Rudolph, Stonefist - a snowman, Valkin - A toy soldier, Rocky - A gingerbread house, Kozar - ugly Christmas attire, and Grog-Gnog - The Grinch.
    - Both Zomm and his skin take inspiration from buried mummies, or in his case, mummies that came back to life in horror media.
    - Zomm's name and design are references to zombies.
    - Brom's design is extremely similar to that of the Grim Reaper, a being representing death who supposedly comes to claim your soul when you die. He is often shown as a skeleton in a black cowl and robes, carrying a harvesting scythe.
    - Kobal's animation for Pandemic Swarm is likely based off of the movie The Mummy, where the mummy could release swarms of locust from its mouth to hunt down its victims.
    - Yorick's name and Undead state are together a reference to Hamlet. In Hamlet, Yorick is a character who dies.
    - Executum's name is a play on the words, "Execute 'Em" ('em being short for 'them').
    - Hansuke's name means 'Helpful friend'.
    - Takumi's name means 'Artisan'.
    - Brom's name means 'Raven'.
    - Ekko's name is a play on the word 'echo', which denotes sadness or loss of life. Also it so happens that the sounds Ekko makes... well, echo.
    - Yasmin's name is a misspelling of the common Arabic name Jasmin, but both are pronounced the same. The name Jasmin means flowers, or nature.
    - Because of this, 'Yasmin Bloom' technically translates to 'Flower Bloom'.
    - Squinch's background and first ability are references to wildfires, and more specifically, how they can often be caused by carelessness.
    - Pignius Maximus' name is a reference to the gluteus maximus set of muscles in the human body. The booty.
    - Icepick and Nitpick's names are both real things. An icepick is a tool used by mountain climbers and to 'nitpick' is to pester or just generally be annoying to another person. Icepick is also himself a clone of Nitpick, keeping the theme of having 'pick' at the end of their names, but also referencing how he uses ice.
    - IGOROK's name is vaguely a reference to Igor, aka the Hunchback of Notre Dame, who, like IGOROK, was considered a monster and had a hunched back. Oddly, however, he was not changed during the Monster update to be a Monster himself.
    - Ignus' Wall of Fire is possibly a reference to computer firewalls.
    - While Ignus' 'Ignus the Wicked' skin may not have been intentionally based on the movie Mad Max, many members of the community believed there to be a connection. After the skin's release, there was a change to the Gold, Xp, and Evo islands. In the 4th level of the Xp island, there is a boss who is a blue Ignus the Wicked named Maniacal Max, a reference to Mad Max.
    - Pignius' Pig Kahuna skin is a reference to islandic culture, in which a leading member may be given the title 'Big Kahuna'.
    - In Christianity, the "laying-on of hands" is a method of invoking holy spirits and granting one both spiritual and physical healing. Augustus, who himself is based off Christian paladins, had an ability called Lay On Hands.
    - Phenol's name is a reference to the chemical phenol, which is a slightly toxic chemical used in many old-fashioned medicines, and yes, toilet cleaners.
    - Phenol's design takes inspiration from many things. A typical RPG slime enemy, toxic waste, and jellotin. All seem equally likely given that he is in an RPG, uses toxins to fight, and has an ability called 'Jiggle', a reference to how jellotin jiggles around when shook.
    - Therand's hero description references a popular line from the Simpsons TV show, "The goggles! They do nothing!"
    - Hagrim's abilities Buzzsaw and Jackhammer, and their animations, are references to their real-world tool equivalents.
    - Valkin's 'To War!' ability and its variants are all references to means of fighting in war. Artillery, attacking with ranged cannons and mortars; Infantry, attacking with armed troops; and Cavalry, attacking with animals (although usually the animals are horses and carrying troops or cargo).
    - Torchy and Mangle's shared ability 'Lock Jaw' is a reference to tetanus, a disease spread by rusted metal entering the bloodstream, which is often deadly. Tetanus is infamous for its effect, in which it prevents muscle movement by tensing up muscles permanently. When this effect reaches the mouth, it is called 'lock-jaw'.
    - Torchy's 'Bat Out of Hell' ability is a reference to the British saying "like a bat out of hell", which means something happened or appeared suddenly and frighteningly. It could also be a reference to the album of the same name by Meat Loaf.
    - Astrid's Boomerang Shield may be a reference to fictional character Captain America's signature attack, in which he throws his shield like a frisbee at his enemies to knock them... off-balance!
    - Ella Ametryst is based off a sucubus, a type of demon that bests their enemies by charming or seducing them into harming themselves.
    - Ella's ability Kiss of Death is a reference to a common spy movie gimmick in which a female assassin's lips are laced with deadly poison, so when they kiss their target, they die.
    - Many aspects of Shade's design, abilities, and animations are references to popular horror movies The Shining and The Exorcist.
    - Julius and his ability 'Barrel Toss' are references to the original Donkey Kong.
    - Julius' description may also reference Donkey Kong when it says he rolls rocks down a mountain, similar to how Donkey Kong rolls barrels down metal girders in his original game.
    - Lupina's name is a reference to the Spanish name Guadalupe (just trust me here), which means 'Wolf River'.
    - When tapping on the shop item 'Barrel of Gems', Thalia says it's more fun than a barrel of monkeys - Er, don't tell Julius! This is a reference to the original saying, 'more fun than a barrel of monkeys', which itself is a reference to the actual Barrel of Monkeys children's toy, which started back in the 1960's.
    - Two of the four Epic bosses' names are references. Kang Kung is a reference to King Kong, and The Roof of All Evil is a reference to money - often called the root of all evil. However, with the Root, he's more of a play on words, as he actually IS a root. Well, he's a tree, with roots, but you get it.
    - Leonidus may be a reference to the Sphinx. Both are cats, have Egyptian themes behind them, and involve worshipping the sun. Leo's design also takes heavy influence from Egypt.
    - Raijin Matsuta Kira is a reference to Raijin, a mythological god of thunder.
    - Leprechaun 'O Tsume is a reference to leprechauns, and the particular way of spelling 'a pot 'o gold'. Both are traditions of St. Patrick's Day.
    - IGOROK's Ice Age skin is a reference to the actual historical Ice Age event that happened to Earth several thousand years ago.
    - Kobal's Dark Mage skin may be a reference to Black Mages from the Final Fantasy franchise, or just the idea of dark mages in general.
    - Bramble's skin is a reference to European kings and monarchy.
    - As I've recently learned, Ferno's Wildfire is based off an actual type of green fire used by the Persians. It was called Greek Fire, was green, and could burn even on top of water. That, or it was based off Wildfire from Game of Thrones. Either or.
    - Zurk's name is a play on the shortening of the word 'bezerker', 'zerk'. Like a bezerker, he values brute strength over thinking, which is reflected in his obvious hatred of casters. Despite being based on a bezerker, however, Zurk currently fills more of a supportive role.
    - NubNub is based on tribal shamans, who have been stereotyped to be able to make healing potions out of various plants and minerals from nature. His ability Voodoo chant is also a reference to the supposed magical practice of voodoo, used by shamans and witch doctors alike.
    - Kozar's Home Run ability references the sport of baseball, in which one uses a bat to hit an oncoming ball as hard and as far as possible. While the ball is in mid-air, they must run past 3 points called bases. If they pass all 3 and make it back to home base before the ball is returned, it's called a 'home run'.
    - Grog-Gnog's first ability is also a reference to a sport. In the sport of bowling, in which a player must roll a heavy ball down a lane to knock over pins at the end, a 'strike' is when the player manages to knock down all pins in a single roll. In fact, the sound of pins being knocked over plays when Grog-Gnog uses the ability.
    - Koros is based off the mythological manticore, a beast made out of the parts of many animals. While manticores are shown to have different parts among different mediums, a common trait all share is the lion's head and the scorpion's tail.
    - Jabber is based off the popular movie and fantasy creature, the werewolf.
    - Ferno's name is a shortening of the word 'inferno', a type of fire.
    - Ferno's passive 'Aerial Superiority' is a reference to the act of having an aerial advantage over one's opponent in war, usually by having planes.
    - Ferno's Divebomb is based on the act of divebombing, a usually suicidal tactic in which one crashes their plane intentionally to take out a target.
    - Bauble's name is a reference to an actual bauble, which can be any small, usually golden trinket. Bauble resembles a bauble, being small, made of metal, and golden in color.
    - Bauble's ability to drop bombs and the fact he is a flying metal machine may be a reference to wartime bombers.
    - Bauble's Questionable Contrails ability is a reference to a type of chemical warfare in which planes would spray chemicals over crop fields, enemies, or civilians to cause disease and death.
    - The Furnace is... based off of an actual Furnace.
    - The Furnace's 'Under Pressure' ability and 'Pressure Cooker' passive are references to boilers and steam engines, which used pressure to create heat and energy for houses and trains.
    - When the Furnace is at maximum pressure and explodes, he makes a train whistle sound before exploding.
    - The Furnace's 'Stoke the Boiler' is a reference to the act of stoking a boiler, in which one keeps the fire inside going by adding coal or stirring the already-existing coal with a shovel or poker.
    - Matsuta's Death Blossom is a reference to the cherry blossom tree, which is commonly associated with Japan, or in this case, ninjas.
    - The Lich has an ability called 'Lich Slap'. I can't really say what this is a reference to here on the forums, but trust me. It's a reference.
    - Sulfurious has an ability called Hot Wings. This is a reference to the fact he has wings and breathes fire, but also to the food by the same name.
    - Cobressa's Viper Gang passive is a reference to biker gangs.
    - Cobressa's Drop Dead Gordon ability and its effect are a reference to the tale of Medusa, a cursed woman with snakes for hair who could turn her enemies to stone by looking at them.
    - Viperia's Snakes on a Plain is a reference to the movie, "Snakes on a Plane".
    - Viperia and Cobressa are based on Gorgons, ancient mythological beasts. In Greek mythology, there were 3 Gorgon sisters, so some players believe there will eventually be another hero who resembles the current two.
    - Krexx's Sun Bathed is a reference to how reptiles are cold blooded and often bathe in the sun to gain energy.
    - Krexx's 'Scaling Strikes' ability is a play on words of the word scale, which can be a measurement of something (in this case, Krexx's health), and is what reptiles are covered with.
    - Krexx and Kreel's names are plays on the words 'Rex' and 'eel', respectively. Rex being the Tyrannosaurus Rex, an ancient lizard, and eel being the slithery serpent that is found in the ocean.
    - Kreel's ability 'Old Faithful' is a reference to the famous geyser by the same name. The ability's animation resembles a geyser going off.
    - Not to mention a million more references from every single event quest line Dungeon Boss has ever created. Obviously I don't remember those all, but this list would overload the letter limit several times over if I did.

    I know a lot of those seem obvious and I explained some rather common things in great detail, but I did it because I'm sure there's people here who don't know about things like baseball or coin flipping, and I wanted to make sure everyone could understand the references.

    Huh? I thought that Kreels name was a combination of Krait (it's a kind of sea snake) and eel

  • @JackHallow666 This is fantastic! :smiley:

    I have to say, I appreciate how Dungeon Boss itself is a reference to retro games. By watching those Behind The Scenes videos, it's interesting to understand how Boss Fight made it work.

  • here's another one:

    Phemus is based off of the mythological creature the Cyclops, more specifically Polyphemus, the very cyclops the Greek hero Odysseus fought in the legend. In the tale, it is said that Polyphemus was the child of Poseidon, the god of the ocean, and another entity although i don't know which one. Polyphemus ate part of Odysseus's crew, and to avenge them, Odysseus poked/burned out his eye with a burning wooden stake, after which he and the remainder of the crew hid under the sheep Polyphemus farmed to escape him and the other Cyclopes on the island.

    Also, there's a Cyclops Boss called Erebus, who is a dark element boss. This is most likely referencing the Greek god of darkness, an entity with the same name. The name Erebus is also used as a region of the Greek underworld where the dead go immediately after dying.
    There's more to Erebus which is definitely worth a read if you're interested in beings of darkness and mythology. It's pretty awesome!

    I thought Hades was the Greek God of Darkness and the Undead.
    And all the dwarves names are based on Viking names.
    Valkin even looks like a high-king Viking.

    How about the fact that Sifu Jianzhi is basically Liu Kang from Mortal Kombat. And Lady Nimriel's "Get Over Here" ability from Scorpion in Mortal Kombat. Absolutely awesome. Not to mention the countless "Simpsons" references.

    Kung Fu panda ripped off practically every Chinese/American kung-fu movie ever. They probably were making a general reference, not to that specific movie... especially not one so... bad.
    Valkin, as far as I know, is an actual Nordic name.
    Overwatch came out after the Furnace was created.
    Ignus has been a name way before... any video game, really. It was very popular in fictional fantasy novels and just basically means 'fire'.
    And yes... Rocky definitely is a Shiitake.

    Also I believe all of the previous Guild Games main quest lines' hints were references to old movies.

    Boudica was not Scottish. Born in Colchester, married a king in East Anglia. Very much southern England. There's a statue of her in her chariot by Westminster Bridge in London.

    There's probably been a William Wallace (Braveheart) reference somewhere though.
    Also I believe all of the previous Guild Games main quest lines' hints were references to old movies.

    Yup. If people got the Monty Python Holy Grail reference (Just a Flesh Wound) in the last Guild games the requirements became easier to understand.


    Nice thread, let's start a special one for references in the next big event.

    I'm just saying the odds of those being the sources of their references are highly (emphasis on highly) unlikely.

    I'm pretty sure Hopper is based off of Monty Python's Holy Grail.
    In the parg where the Knights meet up at a cavern with bones sprawles around and only a cute bunny lays in the middle. Once they get close, it goes rabid and crazy by eating up the knights viciously without mercy.

    So hense why Hopper is a cute bunny that turns evil and vicious and his backround is a dark cave with bones in it just like the movie.

    • Icebloom is a reference to Elsa (probably, I haven't checked the release dates)
    • NubNubs Heal to the Chief passive is a reference to the US national anthem, Hail to the Chief.
    • Dagrunds epic weapon, Veth's mace is a reference to Joveth, ex moderator of this forum. (I know, I know, it's an insider)
    • Astrids Just a scratch passive is a reference to Mothy Pythons Black Knight: " 'Tis but a scratch"
    • Hoppers Eat and Run skill is a reference to the hit and run tactic
    • Kozars "the bigger they are..." passive is an incomplete saying, followed by "the harder they fall". Honestly surprised this wasn't part of any event quest yet.
    • large and in charge from Grog-Gnog (quoting urban dictionary): Obnoxious, overweight, and loud women, most frequently heard screaming at their small children over trivialities in public places (the grocery store, fast food restaurants, school events, etc.).
    • Baubles IFF targeting isn't exactly a reference but a real life thing implemented in DB: The Identification Friend or Foe, commonly used by the military from WW2 onwards.
    • Leos Judgement day passive is a reference to the christion belief of the day Jesus returns to earth once again.
    • OE's The undead scourge is maybe a reference to the scourge in Warcraft.
