* The ''Saucy Mare'' covering itself in webcreature skins may seem like padding, but it has a real world analog - packet encapsulation! Internet traffic consists of data packets preceded and followed by routing information, to announce where the information is to be sent. By covering itself in the skins, the ship effectively makes itself look like actual internet traffic, and is thus able to navigate the internet.

* In Season 3 while being controlled by Megabyte, who represents Order, Hexadecimal defiantly boasts "Chaos will always triumph over Order! It is the way of things!" [[spoiler: come ''Daemon Rising'' and Daemon, the most powerful virus to ever exist has infected the entire net. Her function is to bring Order to the net by deleting everything. Who is it that delivers the cure against Order to the net? Hexadecimal the '''Queen of Chaos'''.]]

* The use of dead web creatures as physical shielding for the ''Saucy Mare'' always seemed pure plot contrivance (expose AndrAIa, trigger Mouse's trap, etc) without real world parallel until one realizes - they're entering the ''internet'', those shields represent Layer 2 and Layer 3 encapsulation, without which the data representing the Saucy Mare would not be properly routed and simply discarded!

*** The horror actually gets even worse. Remember, while the sprite we get to know is a copy it was a copy left on her icon, which she attached to Enzo's to allow her copy to escape with him. So not only was the original left behind but she had no icon. The original was likely deleted the moment the game ended.

* The heroes defeat Gigabyte by the narrowest of margins and some quick thinking, even though it's specifically stated that Hexadecimal being so weakened when [[spoiler:she merged with Megabyte]] kept him from using his full power. ''Daemon Rising'' shows just how powerful Hex is, and it's implied that she could do a lot more damage if she wanted to, except that she finds fighting Megabyte and driving the people of Mainframe crazy to be a lot more fun. Given that Hex very nearly fought Daemon to a standstill, now try and imagine what would happen if a NoNonsenseNemesis like Gigabyte wielded that sort of power at his full strength...

** Gigabyte is classified on the same level as ''Daemon'', a Virus that took years to corrupt and (almost) destroy the entire Net. Given by what's stated, Gigabyte could have done the same thing ''through brute force alone''. It's incredibly lucky that he was severely weakened during his brief encounter and seemed rather unstable without the Web Creature stablizing him, as the sheer amount of raw power he can contain within himself is insane.

Added DiffLines:

**** Matrix keeping his icon in Game Sprite mode might offer more wiggle room - presumably its primarily to keep Daemon from tracked Bob's code, since Bob gave him a piece of his code in making him a Guardian cadet, but it may also allow Matrix more freedom in how he reacts to the Guardians they face.

* Season 4 establishes that Mainframe has an antivirus system, yet that never triggered against Megabyte, Gigabyte, Hexadecimal or the Medusa bug. Then again, Mainframe has no permanent connection to the internet: [i]its antivirus never got any virus database updates![/i]

* The more you know about computer hardware, computer software, computer programming and CGI the more entertaining the show becomes. Several character's names are rooted in technical terminology. In particular the character designs for Phong (phong shading) and Ray Tracer (Ray Tracing) actually demonstrate the CG principles they are referencing.
** There are a few, mostly relating to binomial sequences. The punchline to one joke is told in binary and when Daemon orders Deacon to recite Code 101. He proceeds to recite a series of binomial numbers; the code translates to five, four, three, two, one, [[OhCrap zero]].

* The Edge of Beyond. The most likely explanation for the massive tear in cyberspace is that it used to be a system like Mainframe that got torn apart by the Web or destroyed by the Guardian Collective.
