* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad Immortan Joe]] was a nasty piece of work, running both a motorcycle gang AND being a colonel in the Australian Army. Guess he truly is immortal to [[spoiler: survive getting run over by an eighteen-wheeler.]]
** Wez is Bennett from ''Film/{{Commando}}''. Seems that he didn't need the girl after all.
** Nobody should trust the Warrior Woman. [[Series.{{Farscape}} She's a]] [[ObligatoryJoke plant.]]
** The Gyro Captain is Zedd from ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker''. And [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Mouth of Sauron]]. And he's in a bunch of other stuff.
** Papagallo is also Jared Syn.
** Goose would later become [[Series/SeaPatrol a commander in the Navy]] as well as [[Film/TheGreatGatsby an alcoholic tycoon.]]

* [[FakeNationality Fake Australian]]: Because Mel Gibson gets a pass (he was born in NY, but raised in Australia), there is Tina Turner in ''Beyond Thunderdome'', and most of the cast in ''Fury Road'' (Max, Nux and Angharad: British; Furiosa: South African; Capable and Toast: American).

** For that matter, Max himself has yet to be portrayed by a native Australian; Gibson's successor in the role, Creator/TomHardy, is English.

Added DiffLines:

* AluminiumChristmasTrees: The "Anarchie Road" sign is a vandalised version of a real sign with the real name on it - the real name is "Anakie", it actually is that road (the film was largely made on the south-western outskirts of Melbourne) and Anakie is pronounced exactly the same way as Anarchy.

Added DiffLines:

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Hugh Keays-Byrne plays the violent, murderous Toecutter but interviews show that Keays-Byrne is a very humble old fellow who seems really grateful to be able to do another Mad Max villain in Immortan Joe decades later. A scene in a behind-the-scenes clip for ''Fury Road'' shows him walking in full costume while stuntmen (also in full costume) stand on the trailer used to transport the screen-used cars. He bellows "You look amazing!", and they respond with the Warboy salute.

* WriteWhatYouKnow: The events of the film were heavily based on Creator/GeorgeMiller's memories of all the serious injuries and death he witnessed while working in a Sydney ER, as well as the serious car accidents, some of which killed friends of his, that occurred around his boyhood home in rural Queensland.
This list shows the last 10 events of 53. Show all.
