* IntercontinuityCrossover: Some games feature characters from other games (''CommanderKeen Enters RON'', ''Monty on the Norm''[[note]]Monty Mole from a series of old computer games[[/note]]).

At the beginning of ''Invasion of the Space Aliens...'', the characters argue whether it's in America or Britain, with the narrator claiming that it lies in Australia. In any case, the city seems to have its own currency, "Reality Dollars".
