* WhatCouldHaveBeen: While Brad Bird was working for Warner Bros, he pitched ''The Incredibles'' as a traditional 2D animated film. But the lackluster performance of ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'' (due mainly to [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Warner's horrible promotion]] for that film) put the kibosh on that idea. While the project was SavedFromDevelopmentHell thanks to Pixar, animation fans can't help speculating on what a 2D version might have been like.

** Rumor has it that HarrisonFord and GeorgeClooney were considered for the role of Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible but it was felt their voices didn't have anything the animators could really work with and ultimately Craig T. Nelson of ''Coach'' and ''Poltergeist'' fame, who is said to have always been Brad Bird's ideal model for Mr. Incredible/Bob Parr took the role.

** LilyTomlin was offered the role of Edna or E, but when she heard Brad Bird's vocals on the temp track she told they already had the perfect voice and politely declined.

*** Bob was also going to have invulnerability as a part of his power, much like Franchise/{{Superman}}, which would risk revealing his identity in a deleted scene where he accidentally brings a meat cleaver down on his fingers, only to dent the blade. The final Bob, however, is fully capable of being cut and bleeding (by super-fighting robots at least).

Added DiffLines:

** Syndrome's original character design depicted him as being taller and more muscular while still having a certain Joker like quality to his face. This design was used in test sketches for the abandoned opening but ultimately Syndrome was redesigned as being shorter and more paunchy.

* TakeThatTitForThat: The film famously had Edna announce "NO CAPES!", which could be seen as an attack on ComicBooks/DCComics, the creator of superheroes wearing capes. In several DC works since then, they have found ways to justify wearing capes, like in ''Series/{{Supergirl|2015}}'' when Winn initially dismisses capes as tacky, but then goes back on his reservations because, actually, they provide better aerodynamics to help Supergirl fly faster and more agilely.

* RegionalBonus: In European versions, several inscriptions during Mr. Incredible's search on the villain's main computer have been replaced with generic graphical symbols. For instance, "Location: Unknown" is replaced by a question mark in front of a globe, "Location: Known" is replaced by a highlighted map section, and "Terminated" is replaced by a red diagonal line.

** Brad Bird actually cast Vowell in the film after hearing her on [[http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/81/guns a specific episode]] of ''This American Life'' and made a test animation for Violet using the audio from that episode to convince Vowell to play the part.
