Despite its shortcomings, which director SUDA51 has admittedly attributed to poor funding, ''Shirubā Jiken'' has enjoyed some lasting appeal on Grasshopper Manufacture's approach to video games. The look of the Film Window engine Grasshopper developed specifically for ''Shirubā Jiken'' to combat their lack of resources at the time was simulated somewhat in the game’s pseudo-sequel, ''Flower, Sun, and Rain'' two years later, and again in 2005 with ''killer7''; many subsequent Grasshopper games from this era included creative UI similar to Film Window. While the next project Grasshopper would design, ''Flower, Sun, and Rain'', gave the player complete freedom of movement, ''killer7'' marked a return to the rail paths the player was confined to following, as seen in ''Shirubā Jiken''.

A lot of imagery from ''Shirubā Jiken'' has also made its way into Grasshopper's later titles. Batting cages were revisited in the form of [[Bad Girl]]'s haven in ''No More Heroes'', a satellite in orbit was recycled as the weapon of [[Captain Vladimir]] in ''[[No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle]]'', and scan lines obstructing character portraits makes a reprisal in ''Flower, Sun, and Rain''. This game also began a trend of including shopping centers in Grasshopper's work, particularly ''Flower, Sun, and Rain'' and ''Desperate Struggle''. Backdrops of [[the Moon]] have since appeared in ''Flower, Sun, and Rain'', ''killer7'', ''Desperate Struggle'', and ''[[Killer Is Dead]]'', although the first SUDA51-related project to significantly sport the Moon was actually [[Human Entertainment]]'s ''[[Towairaito Shindoromu: Kyūmei-hen]]'' three years prior. ''Flower, Sun, and Rain'', ''killer7'' and ''Desperate Struggle'' also include cinematics featuring cups of coffee, as does ''Shirubā Jiken''. Additionally, the game includes the first Grasshopper reference to Camellia, in the form of [[Camellia Street]]. This name was later given to [[Camellia|a Heaven Smile species]] in ''killer7'' and a brand of [[beam katana]] in the [[No More Heroes (series)|''No More Heroes'' series]] (although in the first installment, the name used is "Tsubaki," the Japanese word for "Camellia").

''killer7'' in particular parallels ''Shirubā Jiken'' heavily in story and structure; both share a backstory centering around a teenage serial killer, a late-game expedition into a conspiratorial education center where said killer was raised, and many other elements besides, both overt and subtle.
