Find the Let's Pretend store in New Baranec (southwest Steelport), and go inside. You may be able to do this at any Let's Pretend store. Shoot the "Employees Only" door with any weapon until it opens. Go down the hallways and stairs to reach a secret room containing a colorful shooting gallery with images of the developers of the game. If you shoot the developers heads, they will explode into fireworks. Go into the bathroom to see a blowup doll sitting on the toilet. There is also a special weapon on the chair to the right of the entrance door called the Loud Locust. It is a tiny pistol that is very powerful. The weapon is a reference to the Noisy Cricket from the Men In Black movie. If you shoot the weapon, it will send you flying backwards, just like in the movie.

In Brickston, go to the bridge leading east out of the neighborhood. Search for a hidden cave just north of the bridge, right next to the water. Inside the cave is The Penetrator (Dildo Bat) weapon from Saints Row: The Third.
In the "Breaking The Law" mission, you get the Pyro elemental. This is a reference to Beavis And Butthead. Beavis was a pyromaniac that said "Fire Fire" while watching things burn, and "Breaking the law, breaking the law."Chronicles Of Riddick reference
After killing Zinyak, Kinzie says "You keep what you kill." This is a reference to Chronicles Of Riddick, when Riddick killed the emperor who slaughtered his people.Dead Island reference
Proceed through the main story missions until you can leave the simulator. When you leave the simulator, go over to Keith David, and keep talking to him until he mentions the Dead Island game. One of Keith David's dialogue lines is "I was twelve hours into Dead Island, now I'll never finish it. I can't forgive Zinyak for that."Mass Effect 3 references
In addition to the "romance skipping straight to sex" as a jab at Mass Effect 3's romance system, during the Zin attack on the White House, the Reaper laser sound effect can be heard.Metal Gear Solid series references
You are supposed to sneak through one of the missions by shooting light bulbs, and then the guards under them. When the light bulbs are shot, "WTF" appears over the guards heads, like the exclamation point in the Metal Gear Solid series. You can also sneak under a box and fight an evil twin, which both occurred in Metal Gear Solid.Minecraft reference
During a Security Deletion mission, the selected target you are required to kill is a Minecraft character.
The simulation "Leave It To The Saints" is a parody of Leave It To Beaver. One of the things the mother says is "Someone named Dex was here asking for you, but I didn't recognize him so I sent him away." This is a reference to Dex, a former member of the Saints who did security for Ultor, and then turned terrorist in the Saints Row 2 DLC. He was supposed to appear in Saints Row: The Third, but was left out because "Newcomers to the series wouldn't recognize the character and they didn't want to alienate them."
Kinzi says that Keith David's voice is similar to Julius. Keith David provided the voice for himself and Julius Little.Space Invaders reference
At the beginning of the game when the president uses the gun turret to destroy alien ships, the alien ships will line up just like in the Space Invaders game.Streets Of Rage reference
During a mission, you play a side-scroller called "Saints Of Rage".Terminator reference
During the "Ghost In The Machine" main story mission, you will encounter the "murder bots" (you will also encounter this enemy throughout the game). They look exactly like the Terminator, and their weapons sound the same as the Terminator's weapons.The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy reference
The "Don't Panic" trophy is earned when the earth is blown up by Zinyak. It is a reference to the words "Don't Panic" written on The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy's book cover, in which Earth is blown up by an alien race.The Matrix references
During the "Zero Cool" main story mission, Zinyak will explain how your race is doomed and will force you to pick a door. This is a reference to The Matrix: Reloaded, when Neo meets the architect of The Matrix.
When you first meet The Warden, you will have to defeat him by jumping into him and absorb him. This is a reference to when Neo jumps into Agent Smith and absorbs him in The Matrix.They Live reference
During Keith David's "He Lives" Loyalty mission, Roddy Piper attempts to knock some sense into Keith David, who is panicking about an alien invasion. Female Voice 2 (if not all of them) says "Put on the glasses Keith, we're not aliens". This is a reference to the movie They Live, in which Roddy Piper tries to force Keith David to put on a pair of glasses that reveal aliens who are disguised as humans.Tron reference
During a Virus Collection mission, you will have to retrieve a bike. If you look closely at the bike, you will see it is the bike from the Tron movies.Weapon references
Almost all weapon customizations in the game are a pop culture reference. The following are a few examples:
- The Captains pistol is from Firefly. Its plating form uses Shiny, which was a term for "good" on Firefly.
- There is a phaser that jokes about Star Trek's redshirts saying "Aliens never attack red", which was the opposite occurrence on Star Trek.
- Above the phaser is Han Solo's blaster, with a reference to the "Han shot first" meme.
It is not possible to reach the Nuke Plant with a single glide, no matter the height of the starting jump. However, although you cannot touch the ground or rooftops, you land on the sides of buildings, telephone poles, trees, etc. Run up the sides of those structures to continue your glide. Be careful about what buildings you run up, or you might not get enough height to reach the next building.
Jump from the casino and while in the air, use your mobile phone to call an airplane, then fly close to the Nuke Plant.Easy "Fist Meet Ground" trophy
During the Hard "Super Power Beatdown" activity, the second wave is a King Of The Hill where lots of enemies try to attack from close proximity. There is no limit to the number of enemies in this wave. Use some of the time in this wave killing enemies with your Death From Above super power to help get the "Fist Meet Ground" trophy. Note: You must complete the entire event within seven minutes for your kills to count.Easy "He's Still On The Naughty List" trophy
During "The Santa Clawz" mission, fly to the giant Zinyak statue on Magarac Island. This is the same island where you control a statue to fight Paul. Once there, shoot the presents in the statue's hand to get the "He's Still On The Naughty List" trophy.Easy "Switch Hitter" trophy
To get the "Switch Hitter" trophy, you must play as both genders using the same character. To do this, undergo a sex change at a Image As Designed clinic after more than two hours of game play.
