* {{Defictionalization}}: In Episode 59 of the Blood Gulch Chronicles, while he, Simmons, and Donut are treating Grif like "one of those ducks at the shooting gallery," Sarge declares that "this is the best game since Grifball!" Then came ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', and the Forge map builder, [[http://www.halopedian.com/Grifball and the rest is history.]]

* TheOtherDarrin:.
** Charlie Campbell voices the Director in Season 15, instead of John Reed.
** As Shane Newville left Rooster Teeth in early 2016, Freckles is voiced by Miles Luna in Season 15. [[spoiler: [[DownplayedTrope However, since Freckles now has a puppy-sized MANTIS for a body resulting in a chipmunk-esque voice, its practically impossible to tell the difference.]]]]



* TheOtherDarrin: John Reed does not voice the Director during his cameo in Season 15, and it is currently unknown who did the voice work.

*** This is not the only time [[Creator/ElijahWood Elijah Wood]] has played a [[WesternAnimation/TronUprising Computer Program]]. This is, however, the first time playing an evil computer program. (The colors even fit.)
*** In Seasons 1 and 14, Grif bugs Simmons about going to the Vegas Quadrant, which Simmons is inexplicably and unreasonably pissed about. In a popular Rooster Teeth Animated Adventure, Gus is inexplicably and unreasonably pissed about Burnie talking about going to Las Vegas.[[note]]It's later revealed that Gus was just too tired to go to Vegas at the time.[[/note]]

** [[spoiler: During their time off, Tucker decided to form a band. Jason Saldaña is the singer and lead guitarist of his own band.]]

It's possible Creator/RoosterTeeth planned this, and were intentionally misleading in that commentary so as to preserve the secret.
** Both the show and Rooster Teeth can't seem to decide whether or not Alpha-Church and Epsilon-Church are the same character due to Epsilon being created from Alpha's memories and essentially being a back up in some respects. One example is in the second episode of season 13, Epsilon asks "In all the years we spent in the canyon, when the hell did [Tucker] learn to dance?" ...Even though by the time Epsilon met Tucker, the Blood Gulch Chronicles were long over. The current stance is that Epsilon is not Church, who died in season 6. but whether or not it sticks has yet to be seen. Amusingly in The Complete Unabridged Story of Red vs Blue Abridged, this was even lampshaded by the Narrator.

* SerendipityWritesThePlot: During Tex's flashback cameo in Season 15, she is using the voice filter (and thus is once again voiced by Burnie Burns), owing to Creator/KathleenZuelch's break with Creator/RoosterTeeth.
** A subtle case: The [[ArtEvolution redesign]] of [[spoiler: the locus helmet]] in ''Halo 5'' means that [[spoiler: Locus no longer sports the iconic "X"-mark on his helmet. Both the lack of the "X" and the use of lighter colors on the helmet [[RuleOfSymbolism help show]] Locus's [[HeelFaceTurn Heel-Face Turn]] and [[CharacterDevelopment Character Development]]]].
* ShrugOfGod: The Ultimate Fan Guide sets out to answer a lot of long-standing fan questions, but it says that Church's time travel shenanigans in Season 3 are subject to "conflicting reports", which seems to be the writers' way of saying that they don't know if it really happened either.

** Many lines, including one notable case where Donut in the script was supposed to just scream once, but the actor decided that instead he'd run around babbling incoherently while the other characters delivered their lines. Most of the time the cast agrees that what was improvised was better than the actual script.

** An unused fight scene for Season 9, but was later updated for use in Season 10, would've had Carolina's armor completely break off after chasing the Sleeveless Insurrectionist, having a fight in a subway that would've ended with Carolina using her GrapplingHookGun to [[OffWithHisHead decapitate the guy]].

*** Burnie Burns planned to write an episode, but according to him, it just didn't pan out. An interview with Afterbuzz TV implied that he wanted to write an episode [[ADayInTheLimelight focused on Agent Maine]] during the years of Project Freelancer, and have it [[StartOfDarkness depict Sigma]] manipulating him into becoming [[TheBrute the Meta]] - but from ''[[AnotherSideAnotherStory his]]'' perspective.


Added DiffLines:

*** Relatedly, Shannon [=McCormick=] apparently told Miles Luna about the idea of a "Freelancer Ladies' Night Out"-style episode that would've focused on 479er and Carolina hanging out at Errera. Unfortunately, the animation department was busy with the Merc Trilogy at the time to work on it. However, it ''did'' help inspire the idea for Shannon's two Freelancer episodes - "The Triplets" and "'The Mission.'"

** Burnie Burns had plans to write something for Season 14, but according to him, it just didn't pan out.
** Season 14 was "a sort of audition process" for who would be the showrunner next season. It could've been any of the writers and directors who contributed, but they ultimately chose Joe Nicolosi.

** Season 14 had quite a few episodes and arcs that had to be scrapped, though it's possible they'll [[RefittedForSequel be able to make these happen eventually.]]
*** One episode gathered the main cast together to do a live reading of Season 1 Episode 2 while drunk. First, they would would read a new script with the Reds getting a supply of alcohol instead of the Warthog. Then, they'd have to recite the original dialogue from memory. Predictably, it went off the rails, and the episode wasn't aired. It wasn't until a year later that they released a version of it for FIRST members as a reward for FIRST Week.
