* ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy: The toy versions of the E-Frames had different color schemes that weren't as accurate to the series; the missiles and other weaponry were often just one color as compared to the series' multiple colorations.

** During the show's run, toys from the ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' line were released under the ''Exo Squad'' banner, which led to rumors such as alien forces from the series finale of the latter would have somehow been tied to the ''Robotech'' universe. [[https://www.stwing.upenn.edu/~pdanner/exo/eps/comments.html But per story editor Michael Edens]], he and the other writers didn't know about anything relating to a potential ''Robotech'' crossover [[LockedOutOfTheLoop until they saw the toys]]; while he did say that he would've been happy to incorporate Robotech elements as long as it didn't interfere with their own plans, such a crossover never happening on-screen may have been for the best, because this exempted ''Exosquad'' from all the massive legal troubles regarding ''Robotech''.

--> "Originally, we had no intention of bringing DeLeon back. As a matter of fact, we had originally intended to kill DeLeon on Mars when it blew up -- if you carefully watch the episode set in Australia "The Dream War" (I believe that's the title), you will see that DeLeon's death on Mars is foreshadowed there. One of the executives at Universal strongly objected to killing a major character so we settled for the temporary supposed death of Torres. However, an executive at Playmates found out about our original idea and really liked it -- so we killed DeLeon on the moon and then brought him back, primarily because of the Black Box idea we built into the Mars episode."

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Despite the fact that it was produced by the mighty Universal and had a toyline backing it up, the show only lasted two seasons because of stations relegating it to undesirable timeslots- according to Will Meugniot, one station put it on at 4AM! Though it did receive reruns on Creator/USANetwork later on, one wonders why they just didn't move it there and continue it (considering they had done a similar thing with ''[=TekWar=]'' after its' initial run as part of Universal's ''Creator/ActionPack'').

A: lots of "trash TV" taking up the afternoons where cartoons went and B: the newly launched Creator/{{UPN}} and Creator/TheWB affiliating with independent stations).

* RetroactiveRecognition: Many voice actors, with Creator/LisaAnnBeley standing out the most because of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing her distinct voice]].

** A third season was planned that would have shown the surviving Exo-Squad humans and Neosapiens joining forces to battle an invasion from another alien race but the series was unfortunately canned before that could happen - on a cliffhanger no less. They also planned a concurrent series called ''Exo-Pirates'' to run with the third season and link up at the end. After that, they pitched a movie idea, but Universal's feature dept., but they were "cool" to the idea, which was then dropped. (One wonders why they didn't try to make it direct-to-video, or even on the Creator/USANetwork- after all, that's where reruns aired and Universal had previously moved ''[=TekWar=]'' from their Creator/ActionPack to USA...)
