* 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.

* MeaningfulEcho: [[spoiler:"Sometimes one/1 The words "Sometimes one must be sacrificed" are said by 1 twice in the movie.

* TheQuietOne: 8. His lines that involve actual words rather than grunts can be counted on one hand.

* TheQuietOne: 6 and 8. His You can count all of 6's lines that involve actual words rather than grunts can be counted on one hand.hand, and on the other hand you can count the number of ''words'' 8 says. 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.

* FreezeFrameBonus: Sort of. It's on screen for a few seconds, but is almost unnoticeable unless its been pointed out. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1207pJUzM2E A deleted scene]] has the characters open the music box/projector with 6's key, and we see there's a word inscribed inside. While the finished product didn't focus too much on this, the word is still there. The word is "hope". Pandora's box reference?

* ShoutOut: The only female stitchpunk is [[Series/StarTrekVoyager 7 of 9]]. Her fighting style and bird's skull helmet make her reminiscent of a [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Dragon Knight / Dragoon]]. The Seamstress is a snake / [[Literature/{{It}} spider monster which hypnotizes its victims with bright lights and uses the image of a dead friend as a lure]], [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory as well as having an eerily familiar baby doll head.]] The pterodactyl has a [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess head that completely opens up]]. A bulky character wears a helmet reminiscent of that of a [[Franchise/{{Bioshock}} Big Daddy]]. The Scientist whose work was weaponized and whose subsequent falling out of favor was heavily publicized is voiced by an actor whose name is Oppenheimer.

** When 7 kills the Cat Beast, she jumps on its back and rides it rodeo-style, before catapulting into the air and decapitating it as she falls down. This is ''exactly'' how Alice killed the Jabberwocky in Tim Burton's ''Alice in Wonderland'' - although since this film came out first, the reference may go the other way.
** Or, um, how about Clotho?
** A note about the voice actor of the scientist: yes, his name is Alan Oppenheimer, and it looks like an amazing coincidence from the way it is worded in the text there. But guess who his third cousin was?
