* ItsSnowingCocaine: The "So Beautiful, So Dangerous" segment - Zeke and Edsel, the alien pilots, each hoist out what looks like a 25-pound bag of plutonium nyborg, lay them out in lines long enough to travel the entire ship, then proceed to snort all of it.

The film is adapted from a number of stories in ''Heavy Metal Magazine'', an American version of the French comic ''Métal Hurlant'' founded by Creator/{{Moebius}} and Creator/PhilippeDruillet. A number of other adaptations have also been made, including the film ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal2000'' (which had [[InNameOnly almost nothing to do with]] the first film) and the ThirdPersonShooter ''F.A.K.K.[[superscript:2]]'' (which was based upon ''Heavy Metal 2000''). Somewhat strangely, the film ''Heavy Metal 2000'' is also sometimes seen under the title ''Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2''. Another adaptation is the TV series ''Series/MetalHurlantChronicles''.

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: the future of 1981, anyway. Manhattan looks like it did before the cleanup in the 80's and 90's , with sex shops, dirty sidewalks and [[HarsherInHindsight the World Trade Center]].

* MostWritersAreMale: There was almost no female character that behaved in any way, shape, or form the way a reasonable and intelligent person would act. You had a woman who worked at the Pentagon, whose first reaction to being abducted by aliens was to complain that she was going to miss her gynecologist appointment, and who later fell in love with a robot who didn't look remotely human. (Of course, the archaeologist's daughter was trying to {{manipulat|iveBastard}}e Harry, which makes her behavior to that point [[ItMakesSenseInContext make sense]]. And as for Gloria...even the most sensible of us will panic and babble about random things while in shock—although, admittedly, that ''only'' explains her going off about her check-up, ''not'' jumping in bed with the robot.)

* SoNearYetSoFar: This sort of plot is used in the episode "Den". Den knows where Katherine Wells is - she's sleeping inside a glass case in Ard's palace. Unfortunately, Ard will only allow her to wake after Den has stolen the Loc-Nar from the Queen and returned it to him. Things don't turn out quite as planned.
