* EarlyBirdCameo: The final scene of "Twentica" is set on board Red Dwarf, but uses the bunkroom set for Series XII (the scene is filmed in extreme close-up to disguise this). The final scene wasn't recorded on the night of the audience shoot due to time constraints, and by the time they came to film it as a pick-up the set had already been redesigned for the next series.

* TheNicknamer: Cat, who very rarely refers to anyone by their actual name. Kochanski is "Officer Bud Babe" whilst everyone else gets insulting names. Kryten has been "Eraser head" and "Chewed-Eraser Head", with "Novelty Condom Head" a particular favourite, Rimmer is most frequently "Goalpost Head", though he has also been "Trans-Am-Wheel-Arch Nostrils" and "Captain Sadness" among others.

* InsistentTerminology: Lister claims the event that caused Talkie Toaster to be reduced to several thousand pieces scattered about ''Red Dwarf''[='=]s trash heap was an "accident". One involving Lister, the toaster, the waste disposal unit and a hammer.

** As Website/SFDebris pointed out, there was an interesting case where they may or may not have set up an incredible bit of {{Foreshadowing}}: In "[[Recap/RedDwarfSeasonIIStasisLeak Stasis Leak]]", Lister finds a picture of him and Kochanski getting married and a mention of a [[TitleDrop stasis leak]] that leads back in time to before the accident that killed the Red Dwarf crew. He eventually finds Kochanski, but she's already married to a future version of him. Future Lister is a bit of a {{Jerkass}}, but mentions that "in five years' time" they will find another way back into the past. Five years later, "[[Recap/RedDwarfSeasonVIOutOfTime Out of Time]]" aired, wherein the Dwarfers find a time machine and are immediately accosted by {{Jerkass}} future version of themselves who have been spending the last few decades being gourmands; dining with the richest and most powerful people in history, many of whom were [[CompleteMonster "a bit dodgy"]]. Whether a series known for its MST3KMantra as far as continuity is concerned actually intended to make a such a bit of foreshadowing, or the writers remembered and wrote an episode with that in mind, or if it was a happy accident, [[RiddleForTheAges we'll likely never know for sure]].

* BreakingTheFourthWall: In "[[Recap/{{Red Dwarf Season I Me2}} Me2]]", Lister brings a picture to Arnold and Arnold's quarters and reads the nameplate. 'Second Technician, Arnold J. Rimmer, and Second Technician, Arnold J. Rimmer?!' and looks at the camera in a smirking fashion before shaking his head.

* BrickJoke: Used quite a few times, but is taken UpToEleven by ''[[Recap/{{Red Dwarf Back To Earth}} Back to Earth]]'', where [[spoiler: the ENTIRE plot is caused by the ending sequence of an episode aired well over a decade ago, well before the hiatus began! "I'm going to eat you, little fishy..."]]

* NeverMyFault: One of Rimmer's problems is that he never accepts responsibility for anything and instead has spent his whole life blaming everyone else for the bad things in it, from Lister to his parents. In "Me2" Lister points this out.

* LifeSavingMisfortune: Lister being placed in stasis for smuggling a cat aboard ''Red Dwarf'' meant he was safe from the radiation leak which kills the rest of the crew.
