The Superhero Arc is the longest in all of the South Park episodes, surpassing the Imaginationland Trilogy.
This episode ties "Pinkeye" for the most times Kenny dies in a single episode. However, this marks the most times Kenny has intentionally killed himself in a single episode.
Kenny's continuous rebirths are similar to the end of "Cartman Joins NAMBLA", with Kenny being reborn each time he dies. Strangely, Kenny seems to grow from a newborn to a 9-year-old overnight.
The Mint-Berry Crunch comic book is titled "The Amazing Mintberry Crunch". This is a reference to "The Amazing Spider-Man," the original Spider-Man comic strip. The format of the letters is very similar, including placement at the top of the cover, the fact that the letters are placed along a slight curve as opposed to a straight line and the fact that the word "the" is lowercase while the other words are uppercase.
When Cartman acts like a cat in order to manipulate Cthulhu, is a reference to an Warner Brothers animated short "Feed The Kitty" from 1952 featuring a dog, Marc Antony, adopting a small kitten, Pussyfoot. Cthulhu's actions mimic the beginning of the short exactly.
The scenes where Cartman climbs up on, interacts with and rides Cthulhu are a reference to the movie My Neighbor Totoro (where Cartman represents Mei and Cthulhu represents Totoro).
Some parts of this episode is referencing to Superman, as Superman is called Kal-El and is from the planet Krypton that was blown up and was sent as far away by his parents, similar to how Gok'zarah's life was.
When Cartman states there is nothing to eat in the cell, Stan comments "You got poop, don't you?" This is what Cartman said to Butters in "Coon 2: Hindsight" after he complained there was nothing to eat.
It is revealed that Kenny keeps coming back due to his mother giving birth to him after he dies. This was first seen in the episode "Cartman Joins NAMBLA". However, this is inconsistent with "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut", where he just reappeared next to his friends, much to Kyle's surprise.
This part is the fourth of the Superhero Arc, making it the longest arc to date, both in screen time (88 minutes 43 seconds) and in terms of how drawn-out it is, passing Professor Chaos' appearance (11 weeks) at an incredible 86 weeks between "The Coon" and this episode.
This is the third time Bradley is referenced by name. It was first revealed in "Follow That Egg!" and it was used again again in "The List". However, during the arc, his name's spelling did change briefly - "Mysterion Rises" videos at South Park Studios were tagged as 'Bradly', but those for this episode returned to the spelling of 'Bradley Biggle'.
For all of season 14, Mysterion was seen waving in the opening crowd scene. As of this episode, Mysterion waves, then falls down as a cardboard cutout, since Kenny had been revealed as Mysterion.
Kenny seems to be annoyed mostly at the fact that nobody remembers him dying. However, there have been occasions when the others seem to notice.
In "Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo", he didn't die, but everyone noticed there seemed to be something missing, except for Kenny, who jumped for joy.
In "Chickenlover", Stan keeps trying to say "Oh my god, they killed Kenny!" when Kenny is seemingly killed, but he keeps getting back up, at one point leaving Stan to say "Goddammit!"
In "Rainforest Shmainforest", Kelly questions what Stan and Kyle mean when they say "they killed Kenny" and "bastard" (which are actually the creators Stone and Parker according to them).
In "Prehistoric Ice Man", Stan seems to be aware that Kyle should say something after he says "Oh my god, they killed Kenny!". Kyle is also aware, but since he was not talking to Stan at the time, he did not say "You bastards!"
In "Chinpokomon", Cartman shoos away rats from Kenny (who had been stuck in a trance since his seizure), claiming "He's not dead yet!".
In "Fourth Grade", Stan remarks, "Well, who didn't see that coming?" after Kenny is dragged along the road to his death.
In "Cartmanland", Cartman mentions that Kenny dies all the time.
At the end of "It Hits the Fan", Stan mentions that Kenny didn't die. Quite conveniently, Kenny dies immediately afterward by puking up his intestines (though this might of been because Kenny was showing signs of the plague, not Stan actually saying Kenny has died before).
In "Cripple Fight", Timmy gives Jimmy one of Kenny's parka in an attempt to kill him.
In The Coon's comic when the Friends become evil, The Coon tells them to Go with Christ, similar to when Cartman was acting like Dawg the Bounty Hunter in "Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy".
Kenny has suffered all of the deaths he mentioned while shouting at Kyle:
He had been stabbed by the cult leader in the previous episode, "Mysterion Rises". He had also been gored by a bull in "Cow Days" and dropped into a box full of nails in "Tweek vs. Craig", among other incidents.
While he has never been cleanly decapitated, Kenny has had his head bitten off by Ozzy Osbourne ("Chef Aid") and had his face sliced in half by a boomerang thrown by Bebe ("Proper Condom Use"). While Kyle ripped his head off to prove a point in "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe", he had already been run down by a cop car (whether he was dead is up for debate).
Kenny giving up on the fact his power will never been revealed despite all that lead up to it mirrors when Cartman was trying to figure out who his dad was in "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut" (although his dad was revealed in "201").
While discussing with Cthulhu what to do next, Cartman states that they have destroyed San Francisco. This would mean that San Francisco has been rebuilt after the events of "Smug Alert!".
Shots himself in order to make them remeber him dying.
