* UncannyValley: Kuze is more than likely an intentional example, since his face is constructed in such a way that he remains utterly stone-faced throughout most of the show to the point of rarely even opening his mouth to speak.

** NIGHT CRUISE is an entire BizarroEpisode, even considering the series' other Stand Alone episodes. Other than a quick conversation between Section 9 off-handedly tying it to the Individual Eleven arc in the last couple of minutes of the episode, it serves no purpose other than being a WholePlotReference to ''TaxiDriver'', and Section 9 barely even shows up.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: No information is ever given about Proto in the few appearances he makes in 2nd Gig. It isn't until he [[spoiler: falls victim to an attack barrier and reveals that he's a Bio-Android prototype that we ever learn anything.]] Unfortunately, this comes near the end of the series, and really plays no part of the story, and such a detail was never hinted at or mentioned again. It may have been an AbortedArc that somehow still got some details through, or a possible SequelHook for another plotline.

gushing about music we like? It really is that awesome and feel such a reference would cement just how much Rise applies to this trope.

* HarsherInHindsight: Even though no one is surprised, the recent confirmations of CIA atrocities during the Vietnam War and the War on Terror seem way to close to what the American Empire (a very hard Boorish {{Eagleland}}) did in South America after [[DividedStatesOfAmerica the U.S. fell apart after World War III]], as revealed in "JUNGLE CRUISE".
