** 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.

* ArtificialLimbs: Deconstructed. James received an artificial arm to replace the one he lost in battle. It take some time to get use to it. When he tries to flip a page from a book, he ended up ripping it and he mentioned that brushing his teeth isn't any easier.
