* EnsembleDarkhorse: In-universe, Phantom of Krankor -- while he didn't get much respect in the end segment for his own episode, Mike and the 'Bots welcome his return here with open arms, grateful for the levity he brings after enduring a ''truly'' mind-numbing experience without anything to cheer them up. Krankor is even a little touched by the sentiment.

* ShoutOut: "Starring [[SantaClaus Santa]]! Anime/SpeedRacer! ShonenKnife! Franchise/SailorMoon!" ** The opening bits concerning the Nanites battling Mike's eyelash mites is a shout out to the VietnamWar and movies about it (Like ApocalypseNow & {{Platoon}}).

* {{Misblamed}}: The StockFootage was not from World War II. Rather, it was from a 1960 Japanese film, ''World War III Breaks Out'', a fictional account of nuclear war.

* BerserkButton: Both on and off screen for the 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.

->''"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 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?"''
