** Mr. Stephenson as well. He has his battle wagons sent out to stop the steam castle, then he's on board the royal navy vessel to stop it. When it it's frozen, apparently he got out and ran across the ice to the train yard to try to slow the castle with trains. When under attack, he orders a rifle brought to him, and tries to defend the train yard.

* VillainBall: Firmly grasped by a pair of henchmen at the end - [[spoiler: while the actions of the one going after Ray outside is fairly reasonable, the one that tried crushing him with the crane only to be a victim of DeadlyDodging (also a case of this) was staying inside an unstable, steam-driven castle that everyone ''else'' had abandoned by that point]]. Must have been holding a grudge from the opening scene.

* ShoutOut: Scarlett's character was based on [[NamesTheSame the same named]] character from ''GoneWithTheWind''. Possibly the credits give a nod to Creator/HayaoMiyazaki's PorcoRosso. Watch for it at [[spoiler: Scarlet's plane scene]] where off to the right on his own is a strikingly familiar character (in human form) complete with tan trench coat, sunglasses, and mustache.

** Ray carrying Scarlett while flying through London felt {{Superman}}-esque.
** When Ray's out walking through Manchester, he passes by a pub called the [[CoronationStreet Rover's Return]].
** Eddy Steam's post-accident look is at least slightly reminiscent of ThePhantomOfTheOpera.
