* CrossPoppingVeins: Near the end of the ''2040'' series, Linna and Nene are riding behind Priss on her motorcycle; all three of them are wearing hardsuits. Linna and Nene get cross popping veins ''on their hardsuit helmets'', which then detach and float away on the wind. The cartoonishness of this scene qualifies as a BigLippedAlligatorMoment.

* HotSpringsEpisode: There was a rejected script proposal for one of these. WordOfGod says that the script eventually [[RecycledScript resurfaced]] as an episode of one of director Hiroki Hayashi's later projects: ''TenchiMuyo''.

** The Boomers' metallic skulls with glowing red eyes are reminiscent of the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'''s endoskeleton. In ''2040'', the nanotech-based second generation hardsuits resemble liquid metal in their initial state, like the T-1000.

* ObstructiveCodeOfConduct: Downplayed. [[AllThereInTheManual As revealed in supplemental material]], and occasionally referenced in the series, the Knight Sabers have 11 rules:
## Do not divulge any information concerning this organisation.
## Do not act upon a personal grudge.
## Do not act without the mutual consent of all members.
## Do not secede from this organisation.
## Members are personally responsible for any damage done to the organisation's equipment unless that damage was unavoidable.
## Do not divulge any information concerning our clients.
## Do not gather information on your own. The task of intelligence gathering is to be distributed evenly among all the members.
## Keep in contact with the other members regularly.
## The members do not know each other outside of this organization.
## Do not get involved with a man.
## The penalty for violating any of the ten regulations listed above is death.
This would certainly constitute an Obstructive Code of Conduct if followed strictly - however, almost all of the rules get broken, and rule 11 is never enforced. Ultimately, they seem to be ideals which have been rapidly modified in the face of reality.
** Rule 1 is a tricky case - while several people know the identities of some or all of the members, nobody actually ''reveals'' anything.
** Similarly, Priss has ''almost'' broken rule 2 several times, but the others always end up suppourting her grudges.
** However, Priss ''has'' broken rules 3 and 4, and how her personal duel with Largo and his Hyperboomers (which resulted in the destruction of her hardsuit and motorslave) relates to rule 5 is also a scary thought.
** Linna, on the other hand, breaks rule 10 regularly.
** Everyone except Sylia has broken rule 8.
** Rule 9 is flagrantly disregarded by all four members.
** Rules 6 and 7 seem to have been followed, though (regarding 7, in OVA 1, Priss is doing what she's told... until she's chased by Boomers, then she's surviving).
This list shows the last 10 events of 184. Show all.
