I'm not sure if anyone has posted this or not, but there's a quest in MS called, "Souuuuuul Chain", obviously a reference to Soul Train.

Not sure if I posted this one:

In Azteca, there is a side quest to throw an item into a pool of lava. This may be a reference to Lord of the Rings, where the One Ring was thrown into a volcano in order to destroy it.

Oh, additionally, Doctor Purreau is a reference to the book, The Island of Doctor Moreau, by H.G. Wells.

I just discovered another. In Zafaria in Drum Jungle, there is this dog from Marleybone who wears only the thing that people living in the wild wear on TV. (You know what I'm talking about right?) Well the dogs name is Zantar. Switch the tar and the zan. You get TARZAN. (The thing that he wears is what I'm talking about).
The clothing you are talking about I believe is called "Lion Cloth"

I like the quest: "Not in Kansis anymore," because all of the characters (that you need to talk to) are referring to characters in The Wizard of Oz.

I don't know if someone posted this one, if you did i'm sorry. In the pet pavilion I noticed that the names of the shops were West End Girls, and the other were Pet Shoppe Boys. There is an old band called Pet Shoppe Boys, and the song they sing is West End Girls. This is an old old song and I happen to listen to old music so I don't know if I was the only one who noticed this.

This is a bit obvious, but only if you complete it. There's a badge you get by defeating enough undead titled "Ghostbuster".
Actually you get Ghostbuster by doing all the quests in the Crucible part of Dragonspyre. The badge "Undead Slayer" is a badge you get when you defeat 2,000 undead. :)

I think there are some very indistinct refrences to the warriors seires.
1st, Tigerstar is like malistaire. seems frightning at first, but is easy to kill.
2nd, the way the game is set up is kind of like how the many (5 i think) series of warriors are set up. First, you meet the enemy. Then, you travel through the books/worlds, trying to find a way to defeat that enemy. Finally, the enemy is killed (but not always how you expect it). then repeat.
But, along the way, you have to make stops (wysteria, grizzlehiem, wintertusk/field guides, super editions)
3rd, theres alway someone along the way that betrays you, but it only makes you stronger. For example, after you do a quest line, you end up having to fight zarathax, who you thought you could trust. Kind of like in warriors, where bluestar is betrayed by tigerclaw when he tries to kill her.

PS- I hope i'm not the only person here whose read warriors. Or else i've totally embarassed myself......
Faces!
Ah, a fellow Warriors fan. I noticed these too :).

I think that the fire spell Efreet is a reference to the tribe of djinn in Arab-Muslim mythology.

The world of MooShoo is based on the dish, and there you fight PIGS! And the scrolls right in the space between the Palace and the areas, the ones with the statues of pigs and stuff, they read "zhu" (猪)which means pig in Chinese. The Tao symbols have three instead of one swirls. And there really was a "Warring States Period" as specified on the scrolls.

The Art of War quest in Dragonspyre is an obvious one-the book written by Machiavelli.

In Wysteria the cat from Mirage in the dorms is a reference to the 1001 Arabian Nights.

Krokohotep is a reference to Egyptian history, the guy who started worshipping Atem the sun disk, I think.
There is also a pet called "Jinn."

New one that is obvious, The spell the "Lump of Coal" pet gives, Krampus, is based off of Krampus in Greek mythology I think.

They also use Shakespeare's writing style. They all Rhyme and have 10 syllables a line.

"'Tis the fang you've come to claim as your own? - 10
Tamper with me and I'll turn you to stone!" - 10

A few I've found:
In Azteca, a Side Quest to toss a Necromantic Amulet into a pool of lava is homage to Lord of the Rings.

Azteca itself is a reference to the Mayans and their calendar (which caused some panic, as it was supposed to have predicted doomsday 4 days ago). The Aztecosaurs are referencing dinosaurs (who were driven to extinction), the Aztecs bear similarity to the Mayans (who made the calendar), the comet is possibly a reference to the fact that Earth was bombarded by meteors and other such objects in the film 2012, which was about, you guessed it, the end of the world on the 21st. On top of it all, the Rank 10 Myth Spell, Celestial Calendar, bears striking similarity to the Mayan Calendar.

The Hungry Dead are reference to the recent Zombie craze (With TV shows such as the Walking Dead, and video games such as ZombiU and [ironically] the Walking Dead).
The comet is also a reference to the fact that many scientists think that the dinosaurs died because of a meteor, and comets and meteors are similar.

The moodha is a reference to the Buddha, from the religion of Buddhism. Buddhism was/is a major religion in China. Therefore, Mooshu = China.

The triton represends posiedon, I believe, and medusa and the basilisk were also monsters in Greek mythology.

In Krokotopia, there's a Mander named Shazz'am. This could be a reference to DC Comic's Captain Marvel, who could transform into a Superman/type hero by shouting "Shazam!".

In Marleybone, there is a NPC by the name of The Professor, who stands outside his telegraph box. This is an obvious reference to the television show, Doctor Who. The quest's name is "Professor Who?" (sound familiar?) , the TV show character calls himself "The Doctor," (seemingly similar to "The Professor") He roams around space and time in the TARDIS, which takes the appearance of a Police Public Call Box (so instead of a police call box, its a telegraph box), and finally, He asks you to go fetch his "Cosmic Caliper" (while in the TV series, it is his "Sonic Screwdriver")

Also, Morganthe is a reference to Morgana Le Fe, who was Merlin's archnemesis.

Fun fact: King Arthur and Merlin never actually existed, and if they did, they would be living 2 centuries apart.
