* MeaningfulEcho: The words "Sometimes one must be sacrificed" are said by 1 twice in the movie. The first time, it's his argument against saving 2; the full quote is "Sometimes one must be sacrificed for the good of the many." The second time, near the end of the movie, [[spoiler:it's literally referring to 1 sacrificing himself to save 9]].

* WorldWarOne: The trailer seems to hint that the film takes place after the War. Whereas some of the technology seen in flashbacks during the movie proper (four-engined bombers, Molotov cocktails, 1930's-40's styled helmets) seems evocative of WorldWarTwo. This can be explained by the fact that the film definitely depicts an AlternateHistory. If you look at the newspapers, you'll notice they were dated sometime in the 1930s. Of course, the setting and general aesthetic is consistent with this as well. The [[PuttingOnTheReich Nazi-like government]], the old-style vinyl record phonograph and accompanying music collection, the walkers equipped with Vickers-like machine guns...

** "Fallout 3 meets VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet."
** The Huffington Post describes it as "''TheTerminator'' meets ''WesternAnimation/WallE''".
** "WesternAnimation/ToyStory vs. Film/TheMatrix"...the Fabrication Machine even looks like a Squiddy.
** "Sackboys fight a steampunk Skynet in a post-apocalyptic VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet."
*** Keep in mind, the short film of ''9'' was released 4 years ''before'' VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet. In fact, there are several curious similarities, like the enemies, the clothes, the zipper... In fact, Creator/MediaMolecule started developing ''LBP'' a month after ''9'' was nominated at the UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s.
