** When Carmen is alone [[spoiler:after Daugherty is killed, she hears a faint voice that eventually leads her to reunite with the surviving troopers]]. At the end of the film, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Carl was psychically helping her, much like how saved her life in the first movie by directing Johnny psychically to her location.]] He even uses the same line when when Carmen asks him if he was helping her [[spoiler:that he gave Johnny in the first film: "That's classified."]]

* TrojanHorse: The bug plot. The Terrans are GenreSavvy enough to know that it's a trick, but the ''John A. Warden'' is too powerful for them to intercept her before she can get to [[spoiler:Earth]].

* {{Tuckerization}}:
** The ship that most of the plot takes place on, the ''John A. Warden'', is named in honor of Colonel [[TheStrategist John A. Warden III]], [[YanksWithTanks USAF]], ([[RetiredBadass Ret]]), the officer credited with developing the Coalition's air warfare strategy in [[UsefulNotes/GulfWar Desert Storm]], and an off-and-on creative collaborator with Edward Neumeier.
** Fun trivia: Colonel Warden developed a battle doctrine known as "Warden's Five Rings". Each ring represents a layer of a country's military capability (Leadership, Organic/System Essentials, Infrastructure, Population, and finally the Fielded Military Forces). In an all-out war, Warden's doctrine dictated that you identify and strike as many of the five rings as you effectively can simultaneously, ideally dismantling an enemy's war machine in one blow.

%%* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: Chow.

to:

%%* * AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: Chow.Chow is the only Asian character and knows martial arts, which he demonstrates on Ratzass. Though he does pretty well at first, he is ultimately beaten when Ratzass is inspired by Ice Blonde flashing him, thus proving that boobs trump all. [[spoiler:This also foreshadows his martial arts being useless against an unskilled but brutish and determined enemy, such as giant bugs.]]



* DistractedByTheSexy: Inverted. Ratzass actually ''wins'' a fight he was [[CurbStompBattle losing badly]] to Chao, evidently because he was ''[[HeroicResolve inspired]]'' by Ice Blonde flashing him. Ratzass goes from straightforward fisticuffs to fighting with a style that's best described as some sort of libido-fueled variant of [[DrunkenBoxing drunken boxing]].

* GenreSavvy: Although the humans fail to catch on to a few of the details of what the Bugs are up to, they tend to be catch on quickly. For example, once the John A. Warden unexpectedly jumps to the Solar System, and refuses to respond to messages, the Federation forces immediately assume it to be [[TrojanHorse hostile.]]

** In fairness, many themes and plot points from Aliens were inspired from the book Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein, so if anything they inspired each other.
