* 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.

Video of transformation sequence (and variants).
-->"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.

Visually, he got all the same camera angles and dramatic poses that Mon*Star got, but he didn't actually physically change. (Seen in the above video link, starting at about 8:30) 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.

Added DiffLines:
* 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.

* CardboardPrison: The Silverhawks are pretty good at getting the Mob sent to jail, now if only the Mob was just as good as getting out of jail.

* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Yeah, it's by the people who did ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'', alright.

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

* FilmNoir: Although the series was entirely in color there's trace elements of noir here and there, like Stargazer's old school office and Mon*Star is basically a mob kingpin with his own gang. Later addition Condor was explicitly a detective in the film noir style, with somewhat obsolete tech and a two-fisted attitude to make up for it. (At least, as much of a two-fisted attitude that you could get away with in a 1980s cartoon)
