* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: In the third film, Stallone told Antonio Banderas to "forget he was an actor" and expressly made him act the craziest way possible. The results were awesome.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As mentioned in the description Seagal and Van Damme were offered roles but they turned them down due to problems with the producer and a dislike of his character, respectively. Also, Terry Crews' role was written with Wesley Snipes in mind. The role was almost filled by Creator/ForestWhitaker, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. Creator/KurtRussell and Music/FiftyCent were offered parts but declined, and there are rumors that Creator/ChuckNorris was approached as well. Website/IMDb claims Creator/DannyTrejo, Creator/DenisLeary and Alan [[{{Series/Firefly}} "Wash"]] Tudyk were approached for certain roles that were written out when they had scheduling conflicts. Stallone wanted ''all of them'' if he could so we aren't sure if he wanted the [[AwesomenessIsVolatile universe to explode]].

*** When Billy runs straight up the mountainside in the sequel the whole team looks on in awe, with Gunnar in particular being impressed. Lee asks Barney if he could remember when he could do that and Barney says he can't. Sylvester Stallone's [[{{Film/Rocky}} most famous character]] has a penchant for running triumphantly up tall inclines and in one instance ran up a mountain as preparation for kicking Creator/{{Dolph Lundgren}}'s ass.

* AllStarCast: ZigZaggedTrope. In casting the film, Stallone decided to go for actors who were past their glory days. No one is A-list material anymore, and some never were. But their names still cast long shadows. Per TheOtherWiki:

*** The sequel has [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Trench]] announcing [[TheTerminator "I'm back!"]]. Cue briefly the Terminator's leitmotif. Additionally, he makes his BigDamnHeroes entrance in a tunnel borer similar to the ones in ''Film/TotalRecall1990''.
