* SerialNumbersFieldOff: Playmates reissued some of their toys under the ''Tech Wars'' name in 2001-02; these were repainted/remolded toys, and some still bore their faction markings and/or Universal copyrights (just unpainted).

** The Jumptroops are an homage to the Mobile Infantry from the Literature/StarshipTroopers novel. They're even shown moving "on the bounce" in combat.

** The events of the season two episode ''Crawling Flesh'' can be seen as one to ''Film/TheThing1982'', revolving as they do around an amorphous alien life-form that kills and replicates human victims.

* {{Pun}}: In one episode, a member of [[LaResistance The Resistance]] is talking trash about the [=ExoFleet=] and how useless they've been during the war (mind you, [=ExoFleet=] had spent much of its time up till this point fighting the Neo Sapien fleet, helping the Resistance cells on various planets, and doing covert ops on Mars). Marsala walks up to the man and drops a tray of food on him, apologizing and claiming that he's "All Thumbs" [[note]] Neo Sapiens such as Marsala have hands made of up of ''four'' opposable thumbs[[/note]].

* MyBrainIsBig: The Neo Sapiens have it in general, but it's much more noticeable in the genetically engineered Neo Megas, which were designed to be smarter and more creative than the normal Neo Sapiens. Perhaps justified. It's shown that aside from improved intelligence, Neo-Megas have other abilities that Terrans and regular Neo Sapiens lack. This could translate into Neo-Megas having an extra lobe or two in their brains.

Added DiffLines:

* TheOnlyBeliever: Galba was this regarding the Neomega coup attempt against Phaeton. While the other Neomegas professed a desire to make peace with humanity after deposing Phaeton and stop the bloodshed of the war, only Galba truly believed in it, the rest of the conspirators were simply planning to put themselves in charge and not bungle the war the way the increasingly unstable Phaeton was. Strangely enough it saves Galba's life, as the other Neomegas order his arrest when they think their coup has succeeded, and Phaeton mistakenly believes they tried to arrest Galba because he was loyal to Phaeton.


Added DiffLines:

* ThePurge: After a group of Neomegas conspire to perform a coup against Phaeton, Phaeton has every Neomega killed except Galba, due to a mistaken assumption that Galba was arrest for being loyal to Phaeton.

Added DiffLines:

** The season two episode ''The Art of War'' is essentially a remake of ''Film/TheTrain''.
** Also, ''Dark River'' has multiple allusions to ''Film/ApocalypseNow''.

''Exo Squad'' has been commonly compared to ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', both in quality and the maturity of the themes portrayed in the series. In addition, Will Meugniot himself [[WordOfGod made a direct comparison]] to the Gundam series, saying that Gundam is similar to the Pacific Theater of WorldWarII, while ''Exo Squad'' is the European Theater. Among animation fans, it's often compared with ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries,'' and ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' as an example of how Western animation can be every bit as mature and well-made as the best {{Anime}}. Surprising, considering what [[Creator/{{AKOM}} studio was behind the animation.]] Lastly, Exosquad has been favorably compared to ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'' and it wasn't suprising when an extension to the toyline (made by Creator/PlaymatesToys) included re-issues of some of the Matchbox ''Robotech'' mecha under the ''Exosquad/Robotech'' label. During the series' second season, it was paired with another Universal action series, ''WesternAnimation/MonsterForce''.

A division of DVD and airing rights between a few companies prevented ''Exo Squad'''s release for quite some time--long enough that many fans thought that it would never happen. Releases finally began in April 2009, and there was much rejoicing (yay). While it was on Hulu for a while, it sadly left.

* In a brief scene in the final episode of season one, it seems like TheSquad's E-frames somehow became self-aware, prompting Marsala to quip the opening quote of this article. It is never explained.
