* CanonDiscontinuity: The 213 official episodes of MST3K (through 2017) include the KTMA "Season 0" episodes, but not the movie. It's a telling legacy of how much discord TheMovie caused among the production staff, including creating rifts that have never truly healed.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The [=MutAnts=] big, exposed brain makes for an obvious target.
-->'''Crow:''' ''(as [=MutAnt=] when Cal hits it repeatedly in the head)'' OW! Very vulnerable spot there! I can't remember my dad!

* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: Well, probably ''PG'' in this case, but Gramercy insisted on having a handful of foul words used during the film so the MPAA would bump the rating up to PG-13 and help the film attract a wider audience.

** Out-of-universe, the AMAZING RANDO! is art director Rando Schmook. Born and raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Schmook took to the rails and explored the entire lower 48 states via freight train before perusing a degree in architecture, which he used to design sets for Hollywood movies, including ''MyCousinVinny''. Rando really was amazing to the rest of BBI, who credit him with fully achieving the look they were going after, as well as being amused by his eccentricities, which included showing up to work in ratty sneakers and changing into freshly shined black patent leather tuxedo shoes before starting his work (he claimed the soles allowed him to run around sets faster), and changing back into said sneakers before leaving for the day. He also apparently only ate a pound of Oscar Mayer bologna slices (no bread or condiments) for lunch every day, with no other food or drink consumed the rest of the time.

** The bots have been upgraded too, Crow's arms actually move when he uses the pick-axe and he can tilt his entire head up to look at Mike and Servo. Servo is actually seen hovering as Mike climbs down a ladder (rather than being an InformedAttribute like in the show) and Gypsy... Well, she has a fresh coat of paint.

In one of the deleted scenes he even convincingly plays the harmonica!

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: It opens with a close-up shot of flasks filled with steaming, bubbling liquid--then the camera pulls back to show the rest of Dr. Clayton Forrester and his lab. No explanation for the flasks is ever given.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Concerning Crow's "digging through space" plan, he actually did think this through, just not well enough:
--> "Well, believe me, Mike, I calculated the odds of this succeeding against the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid and... I went ahead anyway."
