Matrix, The ("Coppertops")Edit
The Coppertops special encounter features humans as essentially, batteries fueling a robot empire, as in the movie. However in the game, rather then being hooked up to equipment that harvests the natural electrical impulses of their bodies, the 'human batteries' are running on treadmills while a task-master robot oversees the entire operation.
During the Newton mission you are required to speak with Albert Lamore, an ambassador of the Reaver Movement. During your conversation Albert speaks of the great entity known as Satansoft. This is reference to the computer company Microsoft. The pun is rather fitting, as Bill Gates has been accused of being the Anti-Christ in the past.
During the Newton mission you are required to speak with Tobias Peste, a scientist-priest of the Reaver Movement. During your conversation Tobias mentions a Heaven-like paradise known as Panasonica. The name is a reference to the electronic manufacturing company Panasonic.

They Might be GiantsEdit
The phrase "You're not the BoS of me" on some walls in the game locations could be a reference to popular song lyrics "Boss of Me" by They Might be Giants. Then again, it's also just a regular phrase, so it might be a bit of a stretch.
