* GuiltByAssociationGag: Zigzagged. After the apes kill Dodge, they turn on his unwilling and far more sympathetic coworker, Rodney. Caesar however recognises this and stops them before having him gently imprisoned.

* MythologyGag: See also ShoutOut below.
** Dialogue reprised from the original ''Film/{{Planet of the Apes|1968}}'':
--->'''Dodge:''' Get your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!\\\
'''Dodge:''' It's a madhouse!
** The way Caesar is treated at the ape prison is nearly identical to the way Taylor was treated in the original film.
** The manned space mission to another world, clearly meant to evoke the lost astronauts from the classic film. Probably a SequelHook to this movie to have this series follow the original.
** Caesar is seen working on a 3-D puzzle of the Statue of Liberty.
** Caesar is designed to resemble Roddy [=McDowall's=] Cornelius and Caesar makeup from the original series.
** Films starring Charlton Heston appear on the televisions at the ape prison.
** [[spoiler:Caesar's first word -- [[BigNo NOOOOOO!]] -- is, according to Cornelius in ''Escape from the Planet of the Apes,'' the first word spoken by an ape named Aldo, the first ape to speak, that led to the uprising of apes in the original mythos before the altering of the timeline.]]
** The start of the movie with the poachers hunting the wild chimp troop is similar to the human-hunting scene from the original movie (albeit done in a way that also echoes how poachers hunt chimps in RealLife).
** "Bright Eyes" was the name Zira gave Taylor in the original ''Planet of the Apes'' before learning his real name.
** The main guard in charge of the animal pound sounding like Creator/PaulGiamatti is a reference to his role in Creator/TimBurton's 2001 {{remake}} of ''Film/{{Planet of the Apes|2001}}'', in which he played a orangutan that dealt in human trafficking.
** Part of Caesar's plan for getting through the police blockade involves him [[spoiler:riding a horse]].
** One of the characters is named John Landon, and he has a son named Dodge Landon. Thomas Dodge and John Landon were Taylor's fellow astronauts in the first movie.
** Dodge Landon's laugh while mocking the apes is similar to Charlton Heston's laughing at Dodge trying to mark their territory with an American flag.
** Dodge keeping the apes in line with a high-pressure hose like the one the apes use the "Mad house!!" scene of the original.
** Caesar believing that he is being treated like a pet after he sees a dog who, like him, is on a leash is a reference to the fact mentioned in ''Conquest'' that, prior to becoming slaves, apes became pets after all cats and dogs were killed by a virus from space in 1983.
** Speaking of which, this movie also contains a virus. Unlike the one mentioned in the original series, this virus, the ALZ-113, makes apes more intelligent but infects humans with a lethal illness.
** Maurice has a circus background like Caesar of the original film series.
** In ''Escape'', Caesar's parents Cornelius and Zira [[spoiler:get shot to death.]] In this film, Caesar's mother Bright Eyes [[spoiler:also gets shot to death.]]
** Caesar [[spoiler: saying "No" whenever apes try to beat humans to death]] echoes the scene from ''Conquest'' in which [[spoiler:Lisa says "No" when the apes are about to beat the humans to death at the end.]]
** Caesar signing "Home" and wanting to go to a home echo the commander yelling "Home!" to the apes in ''Conquest''.

Directed by Rupert Wyatt, the 2011 film ''Rise of the Planet of the Apes'' serves as a [[ContinuityReboot reboot]] of the ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' franchise. WordOfGod says the film, a loose remake of ''Conquest of the Planet of the Apes'', will mark the OriginStory for a new ''Planet of the Apes'' universe (and future films). This is the only continuity so far attempting to release the films in a chronological order. The franchise is notable for the prominent use of SerkisFolk (with [[TropeNamer Andy Serkis himself]] playing Caesar) to portray the apes.

The film marks the first time in the franchise that filmmakers used SerkisFolk (with [[TropeNamer Andy Serkis himself]] playing Caesar) as apes.

** Ceaser ''is'' this trope. His whole revolution is predicated on him using his advanced intelligence and the apes natural strengths and abilities to thwart the humans with every dirty trick in the book. Getting around the roadblock on the Golden Gate bridge by climbing the struts under it, hurling ordinary objects with massive strength to disable vehicles, using handy fog to get close enough to entrenched humans to bring the apes' superior strength and toughness into play, and so on.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything:
** A blink-and-you'll-miss-it example, but the crude sketch of the window in the Rodman's attic that Caesar [[spoiler: drew on the wall of his cage in the San Bruno Pound to comfort himself]] later shows up rather ominously on a highway marker overlooking the Bay Valley skyline when [[spoiler:Caesar and his band of apes break out of the San Bruno pound,]] as though it were graffiti left by a gang marking their territory.
** The similarity between the animal sanctuary and a prison however is overt, and even lampshaded by Dodge when he brings his friends to visit.
