Spoofs 

Hammer (1972)
The line, "I'll take care of any money fronting sucker on a humble" is the same threat issued by Fred Williamson in Hammer. 
Trouble Man (1972)
Black Dynamite confronting a group of thugs in the pool hall (The Hip Pocket) is a takeoff of similar confrontations in Black Belt Jones and Trouble Man.
The Mack (1973)
In the pimp meeting one of the pimps says, "You aint no pimp. You a valet for hoes." This is a riff of similar scene in The Mack where a pimp says, "You aint no pimp. You a rest haven for hoes."
Enter the Dragon (1973)
As Black Dynamite defeats the Fiendish Dr. Wu he uses the same line Jim Kelly uses in Enter the Dragon:  "Suddenly, I'd like to leave your island."
The Spook Who Sat by the Door (1973)
The scene with a group of black militants practicing kung fu in a back room is a direct reference to the plot of The Spook Who Sat By The Door.
Willie Dynamite (1974)
The roundtable discussion where the assorted pimps discuss their efforts to collectivize in response to the economy and legal concerns is a re-enactment and parody of a scene from Willie Dynamite.  The term collectivize is even given an extra emphasis right before a roll call and vote is taken by all pimps (when Willie Dynamite refuses to participate). 
Black Belt Jones (1974)
After spending the day together with Black Dynamite, Gloria makes reference to herself as "this cookie." The same phrase is used by Gloria Hendry to describe herself in Black Belt Jones. 
Three the Hard Way (1974)
The central plot to the film involves a conspiracy to poison a supply of malt liquor.  The blaxploitation film Three The Hard Way uses a similar conspiracy note in its plot--only involving a conspiracy to poison a water supply.
Dolemite (1975)
The character Bullhorn is a parody of Dolemite. Also Honey Bee is a parody of Queen Bee.
Disco Godfather (1979)
Black Dolemite's line of "Where is Bucky and what has he had?" is an almost verbatim riff of a line asked by Rudy Ray Moore in Avenging Disco Godfather. 
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)
Black Dynamite uses the donut in same way as Indian Jones used the gong at the beginning of his film: the rolling donut protects Black Dynamite as he escapes a shoot-out.
