* BerserkButton: Both on and off screen for the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] crew. On screen, the film was among those that came the closest to breaking the Satellite of Love crew, and sparked Servo's meltdown at the top. Off screen, as noted above, the production staff and cast was extremely disapproving of what appeared to be genuine WW2 bombing footage being incorporated into what was essentially a sci-fi film, an attitude that was given free rein in the more-merciless-than-usual riffing.

* AsianAndNerdy: Invoked for the main cast of children.
--> '''Mike:''' These kids are, like, 10, so...
--> '''Servo:''' Yeah, they're well out of college.
--> '''Crow:''' Shouldn't they be at their jobs, then?

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Bobo as "the Mad Goth" is signing his autograph on a stone tablet and a chisel. That's funny enough, but even funnier is that since Bobo is illiterate, he's just making big "X"'s on the tablets, even when he ''supposedly'' is writing "Go easy on the lions!" or hitting on Pearl.

->''"Suffice it to say that the reprehensible nature of ''Invasion of the Neptune Men'' is embodied in the filmmaker's choice to use actual WWII file footage[[note]]Well, not really, as seen in Misblamed below[[/note]] in what is ostensibly a children's film. To glibly summon the darkest shadows of our century because one has run out of models to blow up is to stoop to [[Creator/JoelSchumacher Schumacherian]] levels of banality. Though we as a rule cut only for time, we also cut for violent content, and we very clearly considered aerial bombardment footage of Japan to be of a violent nature. Nuff said. ...can you tell I hated this film?"''

** The opening bits concerning the Nanites battling Mike's eyelash mites is a shout out to the VietnamWar and movies about it (Like Film/ApocalypseNow & Film/{{Platoon}}).

Added DiffLines:

* IHaveToGoIronMyDog: When Mike leaves the theater due to being fed up with the movie, Crow leaves with the excuse that he has to go and repair the septic tanks. It could be assumed he was going to check on Mike because while the movie plays, there is no oxygen anywhere on the ship except in the theater.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Around an hour, 19 minutes, and 49 seconds into the episode, it looks like Mike has reached his limit with the movie and just declares he's just going to leave the room. He does so with Crow following him, despite the fact that [[YouHaveBeenWarned Crow warns against it]] because while the movie plays, there is no oxygen anywhere in the Satellite of Love apart from the theater. Mike finds this out the hard way and comes back into the theater a short while later.

* SpecialGuest: The Phantom of Krankor from ''PrinceOfSpace'' shows up in one host segment. The movie is so soul-crushingly bad that Mike and the bots are glad to see him, and indeed, he [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming saves them from finally going insane.]]
