* InAWorld: The trailer was narrated by the titular ''Guide'', and formatted in the style of an official Guide entry on movie trailers, spoken by StephenFry in a pleasant BBC-announcer voice, except for when he says that "trailers often employ '''''[[Creator/DonLaFontaine a deep voice]], that sounds like a seven foot tall man who's been smoking cigarettes since childhood.''''' (clears throat as he returns to normal)."

* RetractableAppendages: Zaphod has a second head that retracts from his chest once and awhile. He also has a third hand that's right below his second head.

* RetractableAppendages: Zaphod has a second head that retracts from his chest once and in awhile. He also has a third hand that's right below arm that doesn't quite ''retract'', but which he holds across his second head.body so it looks like he's wearing a sash most of the time.

* AttackOfThePoliticalAd: It's mentioned that Zaphod Beeblebrox became president only after surviving his opponent Humma Kavula's vicious "Don't Vote for Stupid" campaign. Kavula would later claim Beeblebrox only won because people thought they were voting for the "Universe's Worst-Dressed Sentient Being."
