* ShowerScene: Trillian has a (notably chaste, from-the-shoulders-up) one. Justified as she was spattered with the saliva of a Ravenous Bugblatter Beast.

* RaceLift: Ford Prefect is now played by [[BlackBestFriend a black American]]. The director/producers figured since Ford is an alien it doesn't really matter what his race is. It makes Arthur's comment "So, you're ''not'' from Guildford", and remarking Ford's accent was sort of off, even funnier.
** ButNotTooBlack: During a test shot where he holds Marvin's arm, he screams like a black gangsta. Which he decided not to use in the final shot.

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Trillian, as played by Creator/ZooeyDeschanel. [[spoiler: Deconstructed later when she realizes the "boring" [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan Arthur cares far more for her than the spontaneous Zaphod.]]]]



* WomenAreWiser: The Point of View Gun won't work on Trillian because she is "already a woman" and therefore naturally considerate.
