* BathroomStallOfOverheardInsults: When Taransky is in the cinema bathroom washing his face after the screening of ''Sunrise Sunset'', he overhears three guys commenting that the film was "artificial", and he assumes they are talking about S1m0ne and leaves the bathroom. It's revealed they're talking about the period setting of the film, and did enjoy Simone's performance.

* ExtremeGraphicalRepresentation: The interface for the S1m0ne program, which features floating menus, Simone's head forming out of a spiral on every boot-up and a matrix of actress headshots from whom Viktor samples vocal affectations. When Viktor [[spoiler: infects the program with a virus, Simone's face erodes away into tiny pixels that blow away like sand in the wind.]]

** Ultimately, a flesh-and-blood Canadian actress was cast, with minimal special effects used to enhance her. The actress, Rachel Roberts, was not directly credited as S1m0ne, however.

* ThePrimaDonna: Creator/WinonaRyder plays a stuck-up, prima-donna actress in a role that reeks of AdamWesting. Her agent eventually grows tired of her demands and replaces her with a virtual actress that he created himself. This seems to have created some humility when she returns later in awe of Simone's success.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When Taransky [[spoiler: is accused of the murder of Simone]], his lawyer tells him this:
-->'''Viktor's Lawyer''' Here's a psychiatrist in Ventura, well-respected, who is willing to testify under oath that you have diminished capacity...due to the trauma of your divorce, years of abject failure in the movie business and ''a bump on the head you sustained as a child.''

** Taransky mentions Meryl Streep and Madonna and incorporates elements of both actresses into Simone - which makes one wonder how Al Pacino acted with both of them in ''AngelsInAmerica'' and ''Film/DickTracy'' respectively.
