* GoldfishPoopGang: Young Biff's greaser cohorts. They go by the names of "Match" (Billy Zane, playing a goon with an OralFixation), "3-D" (wearing 3-D movie glasses), and "Skinhead" (the one with a crew cut). The trio is still in Biff's employ in 1985-A, now working as corrupt security guards at Biff's Pleasure Palace; Match now sports a ten-gallon hat and bolo tie, Skinhead's gone grey, and 3-D has swapped out his eyewear for [[AndyKaufman Tony Clifton]] sunglasses.

** Crispin Glover also didn't return, so in all refilmed 1955 scenes in Part II, George is always seen from behind (except one shot of recycled footage viewed through Marty's binoculars).

* HeroStoleMyBike: ...or hover-board. HeroStoleMyBike: Marty steals a skateboard from a kid in ''Part I'', and a hoverboard from a little girl in ''Part II''. At least Marty gives them back. In the second movie, it back afterwards.
-->"Keep it. I got a ''Pit Bull'' now!"
doesn't take, because the little girl takes Grif's hoverboard instead.

* TheAllegedCar: The films don't hide the fact that despite the cool looks the Delorean DMC-12 was a troublesome car which broke frequently. It's particularly bad in the first movie, so maybe Doc worked some of the kinks out with the hover conversion?

** ahem, the calculations have been run. Seeing as 1 GRAM of Hydrogen can produce 1 gigawatt, nearly enough to fuel the Delorean, a banana peel should be more than enough.

** Story-wise, however, it is somewhat of an inversion, as Part II & III are both quite distinct from each other. Part II (especially during the second half) ties in strongly with the first film, while Part III is more or less a separate story that just uses the events of the previous films to get things going. Parts II and III, especially, are self-contained stories with beginnings, middles, and ends, which pay back and forward to the other Parts as necessary. While you need to watch part III to get the resolution to the cliffhanger ending of Part II (how does Marty get back to 1985 from 1955 when the DeLorean is in 1885, and how does he convince a now-unconscious 1955 Doc Brown to help him do so), the main conflict of Part II (stopping Biff's bad 1985 from happening) has been resolved satisfactorily. Similarly, the main conflict in Part I (how does Marty get back to 1985 the first time he got stuck in 1955) is resolved, with Part II only answering the question of "What's going on with Marty and Jennifer's kids that requires their intervention in the future?" Part III goes on to tell its own story (how Marty and Doc escape 1885 without either of them dying by Buford Tannen's gun), with only its denouement serving to wrap up loose plot threads from the remainder of the series (Marty's car accident, who happens to Doc and Clara).

** As noted above, in ''Part III'', Marty being an crack shot in a lightgun game and even in a carnival game with a real gun would ''not'' have been enough to save him in a real shooting duel.
