* {{Expy}}:The BigBad is a gravelly voiced villain who has his own transformation phrase and can transform into a much more powerful form. [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats1985 Hmm, on what show was there also a character like that?]]

'''''[=SilverHawks=]''''' is sort of a mashup of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats1985'' (InSpace) and ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''. It's a [[Creator/RankinBassProductions Rankin/Bass]] AnimatedSeries from [[TheEighties 1986]] that shares most of its producers, creative teams[[note]]including Pacific Animation Corporation and their [[Creator/HanhoHeungUp three]] [[Creator/AnimeR uncredited]] [[Creator/{{AIC}} subcontractors]][[/note]] and VoiceActors with its predecessor.

** When the "Limbo Galaxy" is introduced in the pilot episode, the main characters supposedly have to be converted to cyborgs because it's the only way they can survive such a long trip. The distance is then stated as 2 light years (half of the distance from Earth's sun to the closest neighboring star). If it were truly another galaxy, then it would be more like 2-3 MILLION light years away.

If it were truly another galaxy, then it would be more like 2-3 3 MILLION light years. And 3 million light years away.is considered a very close neighbor in real-world intergalactic terms.

* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: A subversion. While it does occur at the end of each episode, it's neither a "[[AnAesop moral of the story]]", nor a "public service announcement". Instead, it's a short astronomy lesson, mostly about the solar system and its nine planets (the show was produced before Pluto's demotion to dwarf planet) presented within the context of Bluegrass training the Copper Kidd as a pilot.

-->"Moonstar of Limbo... give me the might... the muscle... the menace... of ''MON*STAR!!''"
** Subverted in the episode "No More Mr. Nice Guy", where Yes-Man entered the transformation chamber with Mon*Star. Visually, he got all the same camera angles and dramatic poses that Mon*Star got, but he didn't actually physically change. Then double-subverted when it was shown that he underwent a ''mental'' change.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Where to begin!?
** Well, okay, for starters, in this show, space has air. And also a "down." A few harmless insectoid workers get thrown off a ship in one episode and this is as close to an on-screen death as we usually get.
*** Not only it has "down," but down apparently means Earth. One episode had the good guys in peril of falling all the way down to Earth and going splat (since people got cyborged so they could survive the long journey from there, it would probably take a while).
** There's a hero (Bluegrass) and a villain (Melodia) who both use sound-powered weapons.

* ShoutOut:
** In ''Film/{{Big}}'', Creator/TomHanks is seen wearing ''[=SilverHawks=]'' underoos.
** ''Anime/{{Megazone 23}} Part II'' features a ''[=SilverHawks=]'' pinball game. This is also a MythologyGag since Creator/{{AIC}} worked on both series.
