** In ''Les Visiteurs'', in 1993, Godefroy asks Jacques-Henri Jacquart why he changed his family name from "Jacquouille" to "Jacquart", which is left unanswered (probably because it happened too long ago). In ''The Revolution'', at one point in 1793, Jacquouillet wants to change his name because it would sound too ridiculous at the Convention. Godefroy is present when this happens, and suggests the name "Jacquart", which is adopted, thus [[BeenThereShapedHistory causing himself the change]] he was puzzled at in the first film.

* ContinuityNod: In the first film, Béatrice mentions Gonzague de Montmirail, a descendant of Godefroy who lived during the French Revolution and embraced its ideals. We meet him in ''The Revolution''. [[spoiler: Godefroy, before leaving this period, even warns Gonzague that he is going to be beheaded on Robespierre's orders in a few days/hours, which Béatrice told him, and orders him to ensure the Montmirail bloodline doesn't go extinct with him.]]

** In ''Les Visiteurs'', Godefroy commented how the lack of defenses on the castle (which has been demolished and rebuilt in the 18th century) will make it easy to invade for the Wisigoths. [[spoiler:At the end of ''The Revolution'', the castle is occupied by Germans during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.]]

** Ganelon and Enguerrand le Balafré ("the Scarred") are not seen in the 1124 segment, while they were introduced in ''Les Visiteurs'' as Godefroy's most trusted men of arms, and thus would have been the most likely to [[spoiler: dream the film's opening sequence and seek for Godefroy.]]

** Revolutionary ideals are alien to Godefroy in ''The Revolution''.
* TheDungAges: Our heroes carry the "traditional" garb of their time (meaning they '''STINK''', by both 20th and 18th century standards), and the first thing Beatrice's dentist husband notices is the horrible state of Jacquouille's teeth.

** The trope is played with a bit of irony in ''The Revolution''. The medieval man Jacquouille was so accustomed to have cars, electrical light and running water in the 20th century that he's frustrated about their non-existence in the 18th century.

A second sequel came out in 2016, ''Les Visiteurs: La Révolution'' (''The Visitors: The Revolution''). It focuses on Godefroy's and Jacquouille's fate in 1793, during UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution, the era they have been sent to by mistake at the end of ''The Corridors of Time''.

* {{Badass}}: Godefroy earned his surname "the Fearless" for a reason. He might be confused by the different eras he's sent to, but he is a force to be reckoned with in his rightful era.

* {{Cliffhanger}}: ''The Corridors of Time'' ends with Godefroy and Jacquouille stranded in the middle of the FrenchRevolution, with looming threats of torture and [[OffWithHisHead guillotine]] upon them. The sequel addressing it wouldn't come out until 18 years later.
