* After a good portion of his face is burnt off and body damaged, Mechakara arises with a look of pure rage and hatred mixed with high octane NightmareFuel. Keep in mind that Mechakara is actually an evil alternate universe version of Linkara's RobotBuddy Pollo, who has his moments of being a DeadpanSnarker but [[TrueCompanions cares about Linkara above all else]] and even pulled off a HeroicSacrifice reminiscent of Spock's from ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'' in AT4W. Just what exactly happened to Mechakara that made him so enraged?! And what did alternate-Linkara do to him to make him this way anyway?!

* When Luke is learning the ways of The Plot at Oancitizen's hands, it's done in the same way as John Murdoch's training in ''Film/DarkCity''. ''Dark City'' came out in 1998, the same ere as films such as ''ThePhantomMenace'', ''Film/LostInSpace'' and later ''Film/TheMatrix'', all films which were derivative of other works (One a TV adaptation, the other a prequel of an existing trilogy, and many would argue that ''Film/TheMatrix'' is largely derived from ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'', as possibly lampshaded by Marz Gurl's costume.) ''Dark City'' was critically acclaimed, and an original and creative piece, unlike the other (arguably) derivative films. Not only would this explain why Oancitizen would use its methodology, as it appeals to his High Brow sensibility, but it also explains why it would be the light side of The Plot - as opposed to the profit-driven machinations of the dark side.

* Of course Film Brain would be terrified at seeing the [[TheLastAngryGeek Last Angry Geek]]'s ghost. He still remembers what the Geek [[BrainwashedAndCrazy did to him]] as [[WebVideo/SuburbanKnights Cloak #1]]

** Given that TheLastAngryGeek becomes a ghost after his death, it is possible that other reviewers will become "one with the plot" and attain a similar status. It is also possible that the Critic would be able to create some sort of afterlife for them. One should also remember that an immortality spell exists in the Awesomeverse and some of the reviewers do have access to magic.

Added DiffLines:

** It's actually worse then just having a frail ego. He has a frail SUPER-EGO...IE, the logical part of his brain. The Ego, in freudian terms, regulates the Super-Ego and the Ego. Basically, not having a super-ego means that he's not capable of understanding right and wrong, and is ruled entirely by "What's good for me". He essentially doesn't have a conscience.

* Prior to the release of ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'', the Nostalgia Critic was involved in a lot of crossovers. Now, with the knowledge that [[spoiler:Doug was retiring the character after this movie]], take another look at some of the reviews & who the crossover was with - ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'' with WebVideo/DiamandaHagan; Count Chocula with the Maven of the Eventide, ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Digi]][[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 mon]]: TheMovie'' with JesuOtaku; and ''Film/TheWiz'' with WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows. They were all reviewers that Doug had never worked with[[note]]Whilst Todd & the Critic were both in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', they never interacted[[/note]] before, be it in a crossover or an anniversary special - [[spoiler:he was giving everyone a chance to get a crossover with the character before he hung up the tie]]. Like the [[Series/DoctorWho Tenth Doctor]], he was [[spoiler:saying good-bye in his own way]].

* The sugar disrupting the laser cannons may seem like an odd and funny gag, until you realize that something similar was talked about in ThomasTheTankEngine's movie. The scene was just playing off the absurdity and see how they can pull it off.

* Why is MarzGurl the one to continuously direct combat plans for the ''USS Exit Strategy''? During her time in WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}, she was the head of the military!

** This could also be part of the reason Linkara was swapped with Mechakara. Not only does it a) allow him to act as TheMole and b) take comicron-1 and the Arsenal of Freedom out of the equation, but it also neutralizes a known [[Franchise/StarTrek trekkie]] / [[Franchise/DoctorWho whovian]], further diminishing the crews {{GenreSavvy}}-ness.
