Wait… Did Gamepress actually censor Lelouch??
Edit: No doesn’t seem so.

Mecha Eli-chan and her identical “sister” are parodies for classic monster movies, as seen in their FA Art:

Mecha Eli-chan

Mecha Eli-chan Mk.II

Godzilla poster for reference

Also this one because it's cool

And I also think someone posted in the funny dialogue topic the Halloween event scene where Cleopatra clearly admits she is a stand-user.

This one, btw

I like MHXA a lot because she is a better villain than anything Disney Star Wars has put out in the past 5+ years (not counting video games).

I don’t see the similarity at all. And I don’t think you could even count a camera angle as a reference.

If you don’t see it i can’t do nothing about that

Discarding the possibility that you’re overreaching on this being a reference…

Because i’m just not doing it, so people can see some things as references that other people don’t see as references, in the case of Malter the angle of the laser is almoust the exact same and in SRW is “kinda” normal to see weapons coming flying out of nowhere, but if you don’t see it as a reference there’s nothing wrong about it

yeaaaaaa
if i actually included half of the stuff that tvtropes and reddit claim is a ref
we’ll be here all day

Fate have always made references to others things so is a stupidly large list of references

Some absolute hero took it a step further in fanart, and hence we now got this lovely emoji -
