** Though it's quite probable he was being metaphorical when he described the Martians as being composed entirely of brain. He's essentially musing on the fact that they appear to be infinitely more intelligent and logical than humanity without seeming to be driven by things like hunger or sexual desire, which he settles on as a reason for their ease of taking over.

* MythologyGag: According to the official website's making-of book, the sound of the cylinder opening was created in exactly the same way as it was in the Creator/OrsonWelles radio version: a saucepan being scraped along the rim of a toilet bowl.

** Also in the novel, the narrator's vision is cut off by the smoke produced during the battle, and cannot see the fate of the third tripod; when the smoke clears, the third tripod is nowhere to be seen. One can infer that either the Thunder Child managed to take down the third tripod, [[MutualKill ensuring a total victory with its sacrifice]], or that the third tripod fled very quickly, possibly due to injuries.

** [[spoiler: The "New Generation" tour ends the same way, with the added bonus of a NASA scientist on stage losing contact. The martian fighting machine on stage suddenly starts up again, an ominous voice says, "[[AdaptationExpansion The only problem is the humans...]]", and the scientist disappears behind the heat ray.]]

** The song ''The Spirit Of Man'' combines this with the IronicEcho - whilst the embittered, broken and deranged Parson Nathaniel's verses [[{{BSOD Song}} deal with his disillusionment with the sins of those around him, and his delusional belief that the invading Martians are 'demons' sent by Satan to wipe out humanity]], his wife Beth's chorus is an [[IWantSong optimistic, hopeful exhortation to the finest and noblest elements of human nature]]. Then a Martian craft crash-lands on the house in which the characters are sheltering, Beth is crushed under the rubble and Nathaniel takes over her chorus, the lyrics now altered to reflect his bitter, defeatist worldview.
