** The theme song to the original arcade game was a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qX0rW4bKp3U jaunty little one-minute tune]], memorable for incorporating a militaristic drumbeat. You'd expect most of the home console ports to take the route of adapting the song into a similar-sounding, stripped-down version of itself, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca_WLvlVgYQ and most of them did]]. However, for the [[UsefulNotes/Commodore64 Commodore 64]] version, celebrated C64 composer Rob Hubbard - who had [[https://www.c64-wiki.com/wiki/Rob_Hubbard#Inspiration only heard the original song once, while playing "Commando" at a pub mere hours before he composed his version]] - instead decided to expand the song into an [[EpicRocking epic, five-minute-long]] remix of the song that takes advantage of the unique properties of the C64's SID sound chip to create a dynamic, inherently [[ElectronicMusic electronic]] sound. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrQuR1LHAVI The theme to "Commando" on Commodore 64]] is remembered not only as the crowning achievement of Hubbard's groundbreaking composing style but also as probably the single most famous Commodore 64 song of all time, and an achievement for [[ChipTune Chip Tunes]] in general. What's more, [[BeyondTheImpossible it was composed in a single night]].

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: JamesHorner's steel drum score. It is no surprise that the score album sold out in one day (still the record for the fastest sellout in the history of La-La Land Records).

** This was actually the second time an album of music from the movie sold out, as VareseSarabande's release also flew out of outlets (the La-La Land disc has more music, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v4F_SBy69Q the Power Station song - actually written for the film - over the end credits]]).

* WTHCastingAgency: Subverted with Bennett, who is stated to be John's only rival when it comes to being a OneManArmy. So why did they cast a guy whose muscle mass is at most ''a tenth'' of Arnold's? Because Vernon Wells served with the Australian SAS and is a real-life example of a OneManArmy ([[RealityIsUnrealistic Fact is, real-life soldiers rarely look like anything like bodybuilders]]).

** Though given how blatant it is, [[StealthParody you have to wonder if it really was unintentional]].
