* {{Expy}}: The four main characters [[http://blog-imgs-43.fc2.com/3/4/6/346zakki/cp101116-najica-4czns.jpg are pretty much copy-pasted with a different hair color from The [=4C'zNs=]]], a group of minor characters from ''{{Najica Blitz Tactics}}'', Episode 4 (top: the [=4C'zNs=], bottom: the Stratos 4 quartet).
** Sayaka is to ''Stratos 4'' as Misato is to ''Anime/{{Neon Genesis Evangelion}}''. Except without the angst.
* {{FanDisservice}}: Horrifyingly subverted when Commander Miharu forcefully kisses Betty when she showers. The [[spoiler:infection method for TheVirus]] is through a kiss.
