Some people out-of universe spell Cale's name as Kale. Kale.
** Preed's species is spelled "Akranian" in his profile during the credits, but "Akrennian" just about everywhere else.

* ActivationSequence: Cale Tucker needs to power up the Titan to battle the Drej, made more difficult by the ship's batteries being nearly exhausted. Cale almost single-handedly has to jury-rig the mechanism to absorb and convert the Drej DeathRay as a substitute power source.

* {{Novelization}}: There is a book of the film, which attempts to patch some of the film's plot holes. There are also two prequel novels, covering the early years of Akima and Cale, titled [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ''Akima's Story'' and ''Cale's Story'' respectively]]. Little attention seems to have been given to continuity between the novelization and the prequels ([[TheyJustDidntCare someone just didn't care]]).

** Going by the requirements, [[spoiler: ''Gune'' manages to become one during his attempt to cover Cale and the ''Titan''. [[TheDeterminator This is after he got caught in an explosion that threw him back about fifty feet.]] Not bad for his first time at the controls, in ship ill suited to Dogfight the much smaller Drej ships.]]

* AllThereInTheManual: The novelization offers a great deal more exposition and world building, filling in some apparent plot-holes in the film, including how and why Cale can manipulate Drej technology so easily, and why the Drej were freaked out about the Titan Project in the first place (which the movie hints at but never adequately explains).

the Drej were freaked out about into actual ''characters'' rather than generic Evil Aliens, showing a bit of how their civilization works, what their motivations are, and why they are so obsessed with the Titan Project in ([[spoiler:the Titan has technology that works on similar principles to Drej LostTechnology; the first place (which Drej are hoping to capture the movie hints at but never adequately explains).Titan to reverse-engineer it and hopefully repair their own failing tech]]). The Drej Queen's name (Susquehana) is also only known through the novels.

In 3028, humans create the ''Titan'', a spaceship representing the pinnacle of human achievement. Threatened by humanity's potential, the Drej, a race of energy beings, attack and destroy Earth. The ''Titan'' manages to launch and escape, but it disappears in the aftermath, along with its primary creator Sam Tucker. The humans who survive the destruction of their planet become the homeless of the galaxy, living as laborers for alien species or on cobbled-together drifter colonies. Fifteen years later, Sam Tucker's son Cale (voiced by Creator/MattDamon) is recruited into a RagtagBunchOfMisfits who set out to find the lost ''Titan'' and restore hope to humanity, all the while hunted by the Drej.

''Titan A.E.'' was mildly well received by critics, but unfortunately it was a commercial disaster, leading to the closure of Fox Animation Studios, and proved to be the final nail in the coffin for [[CreatorKiller Bluth's already floundering career]]. In a case of DuelingMovies, the superficially similar ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' released around the same time also flopped badly, taking [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation funding]] for traditional WesternAnimation along with it. A variety of explanations for the film's failure have been suggested:

-->'''Gune:''' Does this look familiar? Do you know what it is? Neither do I. I made it last night in my sleep. Apparently I used Gindrogac -- highly unstable. I put a button on it, yes. [[SchmuckBait I wish to press it]], but I'm not sure what will happen if I do...

* OctopoidAliens: Cale Tucker gets a serving of alien spaghetti and meatballs in the scrapyard's commissary: the spaghetti resembles boiled kelp, and the meatballs are small creatures that once had tentacles, but these were obviously chopped off. Despite this handicap, they hop around madly on Cale's plate, perhaps sensing their impending doom.
