* OneOfUs: With a ShoutOut list stuffed to the brim with video game references, Brian Lee O'Malley is truly one of us (and by that extent, so is Scott).

** Although this may not be the perminent arrangement, given that on August 10th, 2016, Bryan Lee O'Malley [[https://twitter.com/radiomaru/status/763496255024574464 expressed a strong desire on Twitter]] to see the game rereleased, saying "Give me time." Only time will tell.



* WordOfSaintPaul: In commentary, Aubrey Plaza, who plays Julie, asserted that her character had (and possibly has) an unrequited crush on Scott, which is why she's so hostile to him. While Bryan Lee O'Malley, the creator of the original ComicBook/ScottPilgrim comics, responded that Plaza was "making shit up", Edgar Wright, the director of the film adaptation, supported this view.

* This movie has caused Michael Cera to turn himself into a real life example of CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass. He underwent martial arts training for the film's fight scenes and enjoyed it so much he started training for real. He still looks like a complete wimp, but nowadays he's a complete wimp with a black belt.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: TelltaleGames asked to make a video game based on the character, but Bryan said no due to the fact he couldn't see ''Scott Pilgrim'' as a PointAndClick Adventure Game.

Added DiffLines:

** A significantly different version of Scott's brother would have been in league with the twins in Volume 5 in O'Malley's original version of the book.
** Young Neil in Volume 5 was planned to have a bizarre new girlfriend with an incredibly humorous scene, but her scenes ended up being scrapped before they were drawn.

* OldShame: Don't know how he'd feel about it today, but Bryan O' Malley [[http://ogiuemaniax.wordpress.com/2010/07/21/scott-pilgrimage/ used to post fanart/original fanfic to]] [[http://www.improfanfic.com/fw/ "Furniture Warriors"]].
** O'Malley said the one character he would remove would be Stacey, due to him naming her [[WriteWhoYouKnow after his actual sister]], or at least give her a different name. She is gradually {{Out Of Focus}} after the early installments.

* WriteWhoYouKnow: By O'Malley's own admission, Scott's life is based on the lives of [[AuthorAvatar himself]], his wife, and his peers when he was a young twentysomething. He was in a garage band, obsessed with video games, and fell in love with (and eventually married) an American woman who had several ex-boyfriends whom he jokingly thought were all in some kind of League together.

* An odd fact mentioned in the making-of documentary. The studio originally wanted the film to be shot in New York, Edgar Wright had to insist on using Toronto. One of the producers mentioned that normally, anything that identifies Toronto as Toronto has to be avoided when normally shooting a movie in Toronto, but here they could go nuts in shooting these locales. And they did.
