** ''Space Quest II'': one of Vohaul's alien monsters bears a suspicious resemblance to the titular ''Franchise/{{Alien}}''. If it [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong kisses you]]... nothing will happen [[spoiler:until fifteen minutes later, when an alien [[ChestBurster bursts out of your chest, naturally killing you.]] Thankfully, it is pretty easy to complete the game before this happens.]]

* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence: For once, one that benefits the player. When on Phleebhut in the third game, you'll be stalked by Arnoid the tax-collecting robot and killed at once if he catches you. But for whatever reason he can't walk past the edge of a dune in the foreground. If you can make it past that, you're safe.

* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence: For InsurmountableWaistHeightFence:
** In ''Space Quest II'', you must navigate a maze of alien tentacles. If you so much as barely touch one of the tentacles, the head of the alien will come and eat you. Annoyingly, the tentacles are so low to the ground that realistically one could carefully tiptoe over them. You also have to navigate this maze twice.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: The semi-official ''Space Quest Compendium'' reveals that every BigBad of the series was a member of the Vohaul family. Elmo and Captain Quark were Sludge's nephews, while Sharpei had unspecified ties to him (most likely either his sister or ex-wife.) However, none of them were actually allied with Sludge at any time.
