I noticed that both the Helios X/Z sets are inspired/reference to Egyptian gods. The Blademaster version is based on Anubis, and the Gunner version is based on Ra. Their helmets are modelled after the face (and Ra's headpiece) of these gods.

So now I'm wondering what other references there are in the form of weapons or armour.

I remember someone mentioned Brachydios' set is a reference to some robot in Japanese media?

More the colour scheme than anything, unless its a guy with Brachy armour and LS.

The anime is Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Helios itself is a reference to one of the Greek Sun gods.

There's also lots of references in quest names, twin peaks for example.

Probably the biggest (probably unintentional) reference is the Blade of Talos Greatsword. You know, Talos, Ninth Divine, Elder Scrolls, Tiber Septim, uses a bloody claymore etc. etc.

Or maybe it's just me.
