* 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...

* XMeetsY:
** "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.

Both of them have more dialogue in deleted scenes than they do in the movie, indicating that their quietness was unintentional.

** Given that the rest of 1's body is as much a piece of cloth as his cape, the "garment" may have actually been a ''part'' of him if he was wearing it when he was initially animated. If it was imbued with some of his life-energy, taking it off could have felt like a LifeOrLimbDecision.
