* CreatorKiller: The movie dealt damage of varying degrees to some of the main players in the crew. The screenwriters and storymen got it the worst, with one screenwriter, Peter Gould, only writing one other film in 2000 (he moved on with ''Breaking Bad'' and ''Better Call Saul''), and both storymen, Creator/PaulDini and Neal Shusterman, stuck to TV and video after ''Double Dragon'' (with Shusterman further disappearing after the similarly poor ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' series). Finally, it hurt director James Yukich's career to where he's focused on TV himself, though Yukich would direct one more film in 1999.

** The original arcade version began development as a ''[[KunioKun Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun]]'' sequel. The reason why the characters and settings were changed was done to avoid developing a separate version for the foreign market, as was the case with ''Renegade''.

** A more direct game adaptation of the movie was in development, with ''MortalKombat''-like motion captured sprites. Some of the actors even shot captures for the game. However, it was scrapped due to time and budget constraints.

* ActorAllusion: The CatFight between Marian (Alyssa Milano) and Linda (Kristina Wagner) gave us the following lines.
-->'''Linda''' (while standing over Marian): [[WhosTheBoss Who's the boss now?]]
-->'''Marian''' (after tying up Linda): You're lucky. [[Series/GeneralHospital Generally, I sent people to the hospital]].
* AscendedMeme: "Bimmy", a misspelling of Billy's name in the 2-player intro to ''Double Dragon III'' (NES), is reused in ''DD Neon'' as a pair of Abobo-sized mutant clones of the Lee Bros. named "Bimmy and Jammy": they also have the [[BossSubtitles Boss Subtitle]] "Mistranslated Mutants" to make it even more obvious.

* FanNickname - The final boss in the first game is nicknamed "Machine Gun Willy", for obvious reasons. This also serves to avoid confusion with this game's run of the mill {{mook|s}}, Williams.
