* PrecisionFStrike: And as this was one of the fist movies to carry the PG-13 rating, it's the UrExample for its "one f-bomb" rule.

* TheMerch: [[invoked]]Beautifully parodied. Taken one step further by some of it clearly being ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' merchandise with ''Spaceballs'' stickers on them. The Merch helps the baddies find Lone Starr and company, and it's [[BrickJoke everywhere]] [[FunnyBackgroundEvent if you look for it]]. Sadly there was no real life Merch for ''Spaceballs'', because of an agreement between Mel Brooks and George Lucas.

Sadly there was no real life Merch The gag is actually Mel ribbing George Lucas, who only gave his blessing (and lent out Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic) for ''Spaceballs'', because of an agreement between Mel this film if Brooks and George Lucas.didn't make any real-life merchandise.

** The evil plan of the Spaceballs is a reference to a ethnic joke probably not told anymore. ''Why do Jews have big noses? Because [[GreedyJew air is free.]]'' Being Mel Brooks this is probably [[RefugeInAudacity intentional.]]

** Oddly enough, it's actually an aversion despite being the TropeNamer: the only harm that really comes out of it is ''Spaceball One'' overshooting Lone Starr by a minimum of several hours in non-Ludicrous Speed travel time, and Dark Helmet taking some AmusingInjuries from crashing into a bridge console when ''Spaceball One'' decelerates.

* DVDCommentary: By Mel Brooks and Ronny Graham... allegedly. You kind of have to [[TakeOurWordForIt take Brooks' word for it]] that Graham is actually there the whole time. (his only contributions are giggling near the beginning of the film and finally speaking towards the end)
