1. Metroville's name 2. Panorama in the archive footage references similar shot in Metropolis
Train running into a tracks gap
Elastigirl looks at her butt in the mirror and sighs, just as Tinkerbell did.
Strange machine descends on city, uses a ray beam to cause destruction
The word "Kronos" is featured as a password and plot point in The Incredibles, which, like the movie Kronos, features a giant machine that falls from the sky and lays waste to a city.
The baby is named Jack-Jack Paar
The wide shot of Insuricare's offices stretching into the distance is an homage to a famous shot in The Apartment.
gadget maker "E" is named after 007's loyal "Q"
When Bob is approaching Syndrome's lair at night, the music and shots match the opening scenes of Goldfinger, as Bond approaches the oil storage tanks.
Brad Bird admitted he loves Jonny Quest, and "The Incredibles" pays tribute having a full blown jazz soundtrack and a one-eyed spheric robot as a villain, just like the series
The boring machine used by the Underminer is an almost exact replica of the Mole used by International Rescue in the original puppet series.
Edna has a secret room like the Batcave. Also, when Bob throws the monorail pod at the gate, it blocks the moon making a Batman symbol for a brief moment.
The device that Mirage gives Bob contains a message that self-destructs.
The megliomaniac rocket/secret hide out on the island and the monorail transport
characters have identical abilities: Mr. Incredible (Thing), ElastiGirl (Mr. Fantastic), Violet (Invisible Woman), Jak Jak (Human Torch)
The room of pod craft that Bob runs through is the same as the pod bay on the Discovery in that movie. Also, the device that Mirage places in Bob's cubicle projects onto his face like the computer does to Dave's face.
a rendition of OHMSS's main theme is used
Rick Dicker says he'll relocate Bob and his family "for old time's sake."
During the Dash's chase sequence with the hovercrafts over the water, the shape of the rock formations is like that of Scaramanga's island in the Bond movie
At the end of the movie, Mr. Incredible rips open his shirt much like Superman does.
Syndrome's robot features spinning "claws" that are a visual and functional match for those on the Maximilian robot.
Scene when Syndrome "catches" fuel truck with his beam is a reference to Superman - it features idendical shot of lady grabbing infant in cart, and she even yells "My baby!" just like in Superman.
Rob Parr/Mr. Incredible outrunning large rolling sphere/robot as Indiana Jones did in RotLA.
The so-called "100-mile Dash" scene with Dash running through the island jungle and dodging trees, is highly reminiscent of the speeder bike chase from Jedi, including the same vehicle sound effects.
Gag where several clocks on wall behind Bob's boss's desk show same time instead of different time zones. This gag originated in Spinal Tap.
The vehicle the Mole Men appear in at the end of the film is the same as the transport modules in Ninja Turtles
use of rocket-powered detached robotic hand by hero to destroy robot
Helen Parr's (Holly Hunter) flight approach into Nomanisan Island is VERY similar to Dorinda's (Holly Hunter) end-of-movie flight in Always where the plane is in an uncontrollable dive and then she pulls hard on the controls to regain control of the plane. In both, she is initially distracted before returning to the controls to avert complete disaster when the plane crashes.
Both Major Grant and Syndrome die through Suction by a Jet Engine.
Incrediboy saying, "I'm you're number one fan."
Syndrome's chin/profile are shaped like Jay Leno's
Visual reference of a gate from Jurassic Park island: when Mr. Incredible attacks the two soldiers on the island with the monorail cart. The two soldiers guard the gate that appears to be a visual reference to the gates in Jurassic Park.
Syndrome has a gap in his front teeth, like Letterman
Syndrome's shock of red hair is very much like Conan's
The shot of the RV's back wheels landing on the expressway mirrors the bus' wheels landing after the jump.
The "Frozone (Sam Jackson)/Water cooler/Cop pointing gun" scene is a clear reference to the "Zeus (Sam Jackson)/Phone/Cop pointing gun", including some of the dialogue
Scene in a huge room with a catwalk that leads to a lone computer.
When trying to remember Incrediboy's real name, Mr. Incredible mistakenly calls him Brody, the name of Jason Lee's character in Mallrats.
the pod race
When borrowing a plane, Helen's pilot call sign is "India Golf Niner-Niner", which translates to IG99, a reference to the 1999 film The (I)ron (G)iant.
The night Mr. Incredible is sitting in his office and gets the message from Mirage, there is a brief moment where the entire room and all the memorabilia is shown (33:07). On one of the shelves at the bottom left there is a 'Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots' toy seen, as seen in Toy Story 2.
Plane sinking to bottom of ocean as seen by survivor of crash
Violet in "The Incredibles" renders herself invisible in much the same manner as Randall Boggs.
In Die Another Day, the villain's parachute sucks him into a jet turbine. In The Incredibles, the villain's cape sucks him into a jet turbine.
The MPAA number at the end of the film (#39772) is the same on both "Finding Nemo" (2003) and "The Incredibles" (2004). "Finding Nemo"'s true certificate number is 39772 and "The Incredibles" is 41083.
As the teacher accusing Dash, Lou Romano's voice shouts, "This little rat is GUILTY!" Lou Romano's is also the voice of Linguini, the would-be chef who forms a conflicted friendship with a little rat.
