* HeyItsThatVoice: The original movie features quite a few alumni of ''Series/{{SCTV}}''. Of note:
** The police desk sergeant, Den, and the robot are all voiced by Film/UncleBuck himself.
** [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Egon Spengler]] is the green stoner alien, Zeke.
** [[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] is one of the henchmen during the Harry Canyon sequence.
** Also in the Harry Canyon sequence, [[TheRaccoons Susan]] [[Anime/SailorMoon Roman]] is the Girl.
** [[Film/AnimalHouse Dean Wormer]] is the guy prosecuting Captain Sternn.
** [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Squidward]] is Hanover Fiste and Dr. Anrak.
** You half expect Captain Sternn's lawyer to yell [[Film/HappyGilmore "Ya JACKASS!"]]
** [[WesternAnimation/{{Doug}} Beebe Bluff]] is Gloria the redheaded secretary.
** Subverted, however, with Captain Sternn and Edsel the purple stoner alien, who both sound NOTHING like [[Film/AmericanPie Eugene Levy's]] natural speaking voice.
** [[WesternAnimation/AtomicBetty Maximus IQ Sr.]] is Grimaldi, the B-17 co-pilot, and one of the barbarians in Taarna.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Elmer Bernstein reworked some of his ''Heavy Metal'' score as "Dana's Theme" from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''.

* TheDanza: Julie is voiced by Penthouse Pet and B-movie queen Julie Strain. The character is even designed to look like her.
** Thank {{Nepotism}} for that - Strain was married to ''Heavy Metal'''s editor-in-chief Kevin Eastman (he of the TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles, and a co-writer of the graphic novel the film is based on) at the time.



** Music/BillyIdol is in the sequel! And Tyler is [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Darkseid]], and Chartog and Zeek are [[WesternAnimation/TrippingTheRift Darph Bobo and Whip]], respectively.

* ActorAllusion: In the 1980s TV series ''Series/{{V}}'', one of the important characters is a battle-hardened Resistance leader fighting against the Visitors, a group of extraterrestrial lizard-people.
