Added DiffLines:

** [[DeathFromAbove The hanging pod]] which grabs Roger and eats him if he gets too close becomes this regarding the [[VideoGame/HalfLife Barnacle]].


Added DiffLines:

** The ExplosiveDecompression death from the first is pretty unsettling, putting Film/TotalRecall1990 to shame.
*** The ''Space Quest III'' version is even worse! It shows up Roger Wilco with his torso completely [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bisected]] [[{{Squick}} with guts floating everywhere]] just like if he had been attacked by a [[{{Franchise/Alien}} Facehugger]] or mauled to death by a tiger!

** The BodyHorror caused by the Pukoid virus is V is as terrifying as it is Squicky. [[spoiler: Pukoid Quirk in particular has a face that ''will'' give you horrible nightmares.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: The game parodies many sci-fi works, most notably ''Franchise/StarWars''. And Roger Wilco is a janitor. Come ''Movie/StarWarsTheForceAwakens'', guess Finn's former occupation? That's right, a janitor (and, perhaps, not a very good one)

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** ''[[http://www.spacequest.net/archives/sq7/ Space Quest VII: Return to Roman Numerals]]''. ''The Space Quest Collection'' came with a ''Space Quest VII'' demo movie with no gameplay footage. The game was still in [[http://www.wiw.org/~jess/old_sq7.html early development]], planned to be [[PolygonCeiling 3D and multiplayer]].
** Escape Factory's ''[[http://www.spacequest.net/archives/sq7/escapefactory/index.shtml Space Quest]]'', an InNameOnly [[http://www.unseen64.net/tag/escape-factory/ action-adventure]] platformer for PS2/Xbox, starring "Wilger".

* ThatOneLevel: In ''VideoGame/SpaceQuestIV'', the Skate-O-Rama scene where you have to escape the sequel police.
** In ''VideoGame/SpaceQuestV'', rescuing Cliffy with the EVA pod. Not only you need to locate him first, you must do it quickly before you run out of fuel and oxygen. And don't forget, you also need to return back to the Eureka!

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Roger Wilco. Bumbling, lazy idiot who only manages to succeed through sheer blind luck, or underestimated (though unmotivated) hero who manages to get ahead by using his cunning and resources to save the day? Big Bad Sharpei of Space Quest VI feels it's a bit of both, that Roger is a bumbling idiot but he couldn't have survived the way he has without some degree of genuine capacity.

* {{Squick}}: In ''Space Quest 6'', how does Roger escape Stellar's body? Why, no other than by flashing his ship's headlight through a large zit on her nose, which then gets popped so that Roger shoots out in a dollop of pus.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Signs all over the place, a lot of them very blatant.
** In the VGA remake of SQ1, the Arcada's archive room is explained to have a CRT monitor. And the data cartridge Roger picks up resembles an 8-track tape.
** The ultra-hi-tech supercomputer in SQ4 (or 12) turns out to have a Macintosh 7.5-ish desktop placed over a Windows 3.1 window.
** There's also the long list of old computer stuff in the Genetix lab of SQ5, including SCSI drives, Base-T network, and a 9000 BD modem.
** And a few more examples in SQ6
*** Roger has to read a CD-based magazine. Those didn't last very long back then.
*** In cyberspace he wanders onto a Windows 3.1 desktop.
*** And the narrator plays this for laughs when describing Roger's bed having an 8-track player, complete with an intentional sound glitch.
