Robot Louis Stevenson is a reference to Robert Louis Stevenson and the Deerhaunter is a reference to the 1978 movie "The Deer Hunter" . He may also be a reference to an Evil Dead 2 scene :

I think the futuristic looking soldiers (TS2?) named Pvt. Hicks and possibly Pvt. Jones are a reference to the film Aliens which features a Cpl. Hicks. There was no Pvt/Corporal Jones in that film but 'Jones' may be a wink to Ripley's cat who was called Jones/Jonesy.
Also - in the opening mission, a soldier shouts "coming outta the walls! They're coming outta the goddamn walls!" which is a more obvious reference to the film.

Although the character Ghost from Neo Tokyo map seems to have no relevance to any Blade Runner character he may be a nod to the Book Neuromancer and the character called 'Case'. Ghost's gallery description mentions an AI core and his occupation as 'cyberjock'.

The reference in Shaun of the Dead to TS is returned the other way too. One of the TS chars (from FP I think) says 'Do I have red on me'. In 'Shaun of the dead', Shaun's red pen breaks in his white shirt pocket and various people in the film tell him 'you've got red on you'.

The soprano Ear Worm that features through the haunted-house level comes from End of Days.

In You Genius, U-Genix, Cortez obtains the ID card of a worker named Dr. Gordon Freeman.

The "Sammy Cap" from Team Fortress 2



"The object and his name would be a reference to the game TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, which at the challenge "Sammy Hammy Namby Pamby" a soldier named Samuel Renzo was parachuted with his breakfast in the battlefield. Unfortunately for him, his breakfast landed in enemy territory."
-French TF2 Wiki (I writed this trivia)

For one thing, that would be a very specific reference to a franchise barely referenced by anything. For another, it's so much more likely that it's just a contraction of "Sandwich cap". Which is what it is.

I understand wanting to believe somebody out there acknowledged Timesplitters, but the simple fact is that it's rare that anybody ever does, and unless it's a direct, almost undeniable reference (such as my named Lugermorph- Kruger 9mm) I wouldn't go editing trivia sections of Wiki articles. :unsure:

  • "Princess" is a refrence to the Curry Monster in Red Dwarf because of the canister stuck in its mouth.

    Not as such; in both cases the way each monster is disposed of is more of a reference to 'Jaws', particularly given away in FP's case by Roy Scheider's line "smile you son of a bitch!" (before blowing the shark to bits by blasting a canister stuck in the shark's mouth) being referenced by Anya's "smile, you bitch" line in FP.

    Elements of Princess' appearance however may be a shout to the Mutton Vindaloo Beast.

    Edit:
    On the subject of Mansion of Madness/What Lies Below, these two levels have a huge Resident Evil vibe about them (although not anything actually in the way of a direct reference to RE). Mansion full of zombies, underground caverns, and of course a lab. And then the lab is set to self-destruct.
    Not like that. Just like that - he ain't never gonna do it without the fez on.

    I guess it was directed at Jaws then. I did think of the "Smile you bitch" line after posting that.

    Well, you have the wiki backing you up. Not to mention, I can see the resemblance, somewhat. It's entirely possible they were like "Let's make the boss in this level look like the Curry Monster, and have it disposed of with an canister, just like in Red Dwarf!"

    "Oh, you mean just like how they kill the shark in Jaws?"

    "..."

    "...Let's make Anya say 'smile, you bitch', too."
