* Creator/MasiOka often gives nods to the series, either in his new roles or simply in interviews or commercials for Creator/MobiusDigital's games. While he'd had recurrent roles before, Hiro was the character who stuck in everyone's minds and made him recognizable.

** While Creator/HaydenPanettiere, Creator/MiloVentimiglia, Creator/GregGrunberg, and Creator/AdrianPasdar weren't exactly unknown before(Grunberg with a long-running role on ''{{Series/Felicity}}'' and Pasdar as the lead in the short-lived ''{{Series/Profit}})'', but the show definitely increased their acting profiles. Santiago Cabrera's and Sendhil Ramamurthy's UK profiles also were boosted by the show, as most of their post-''Heroes'' jobs have been UK productions.

* FranchiseKiller: Season 4/Volume 5 ended up being the final season of Heroes, despite leaving a CliffHanger. Opinion is divided over whether or not it was due to Volume 5 itself, or just karma from arguably inferior previous seasons catching up. Actually, not only was the show cancelled, but they also ended up abruptly ending the graphic novels, and original plans for an end-of-series movie was also scrapped as well. It would be another five years until ''Series/HeroesReborn'' would appear. However, after ''Reborn'''s poor showing, it's unlikely that any future television projects would appear. There's also some speculation that the show's dive in quality and ratings also started to signal that viewers were starting to tire of splashy big budget network shows as similarly styled shows have had poor showings since then while smaller budget character-based shows on cable and subscription services were flourishing.

** An alternate version of the pilot showed that Ted Sprague's power originally belonged to another character named Amid Halebi. The character was going to be involved with a terrorist plot and had a history with Matt Parkman, but Tim Kring felt the storyline was far too controversial and cut it out of the final pilot. Halebi's ability was then reworked into Ted's story.

** Tracy disappearing halfway through season 4 was due to Ali Larter filming ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife''.
* ScullyBox: Hayden Panettiere and Kristen Bell are very petite women, only coming up to 5'1" at best. They either needed the Scully boxes or wore heels in order to fit into scenes against Zachary Quinto (6'3) and Jack Coleman (6'2").

** Elle was supposed to show up in the "I Am Become Death" future as the mother of the little boy, but conflicts with Kristen Bell's filming schedule forced the writers to cut the Sylar[=/=]Elle arc short and kill her off.

** While Hayden Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia, Greg Grunberg, and Adrian Pasdar weren't exactly unknown before, but the show pretty much increased their acting profiles.
** The show also helped Santiago Cabrera and Sendhil Ramamurthy increase their profiles in the UK, as most of their post-''Heroes'' jobs are there.
** This show is essentially the reason you know who Zachary Quinto is and how he got his even bigger role as Spock in the ''Star Trek'' films.
* ThrowItIn: Peter's shaggy PeekABangs was a result of Milo Ventimiglia filming his last ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' appearance, ''Film/RockyBalboa'', and the pilot within short times of each other, thus having no time to getting a haircut in between. He hated having the long hair so much that the show wrote in Sylar cutting off a lock of Peter's hair as a reference to his hatred of it. After the first season was finished shooting, he buzzed all the hair off and kept it fairly short until the final season. Elle giving him a haircut in Season 2 was written in because of it and he had to wear a wig in the flashbacks.
