* SpiritualSuccessor: The idol groups Shiritsuu Ebitsu Chuugaku and Team Syachihoko are officially regarded as their younger sister groups. It's more obvious with the latter, since they have the whole color code system.
** Takoyaki Rainbow is referred to as "Stardust's Ultimate Weapon" and not an official sister group. Interestingly, just like Momoclo, they also debuted as a six-member color-coded group only to lose a member a couple years in (red in their case).

* TheMerch: Aside for standard idol merchandises (photos, bromides, photobooks, t-shirts and so on), they're the only Idol Group that saw an [[NoExportForYou exclusive and limited releases]] action figures release by Bandai (yes, that Creator/{{Bandai}}) in Chibi-Arts line back then when they're not so famous.

* {{Fanservice}}: The "Kaitou Shojo" Music video for those with outfit fetishes. Otherwise averted, as Stardust Productions has a modesty clause for their idol acts (no gravure, no bikini shoots, no dyed hair or excessive makeup etc.).

** The "Chai Maxx" pose is an homage to professional wrestler Keiji Mutoh's signature pose. Some dance parts were also inspired by Alistair Overeem's moves. Also, Reni is shown dressed as Danpei, the coach from {{Ashita no Joe}} in this mixed martial arts themed Music Video.

** Several of their music videos, "Mirai Bowl" to ''Theatre/WestSideStory'', "D no Junjou" to KamenNoNinjaAkakage, "Otome Sensou" to ''Film/DeadPoetsSociety''. Making homages is pretty much this group's selling point; to list them all would probably require a separate page.

** The "Otome Sensou" outfits? YES!! THAT'S MobileSuitGundam ZAKU II!! Although WordOfGod has stated that the costume was based on wrestling duo Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors, it more resembles Zaku, especially that pipe thingy.
