** During the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MSTing]], one of the riffers quips that this movie is the "Community Theater version of Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy." A few months later, Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 would come out, and would feature Creator/DavidHasselhoff in [[OneSceneWonder a memorable cameo]] as well as singing the ending credits theme.

* SoBadItsGood: You really have to admire the amount of HamAndCheese this whole movie contains. It's glorious. It's even better with the botched English dub.
** Really, this has to be seen to be appreciated. There are scenes that are literally just the audience watching the characters do nothing. Several more are just scenes of the characters walking, and not nearly as exciting as LordOfTheRings.
* SpecialEffectFailure: Like ''StarWars'', the first minute or so of the film consists of shots of a giant spaceship. Unlike ''StarWars'', the spaceship looks like it's made of Lego (you can actually see they used model-car runners pasted *intact* on the ship sides) and space looks like it's full of Christmas lights. Later, during the space battles, you can see the strings the ships are moving on (and don't worry if you miss them the first time: the scenes are reused). Also, halting the flow of time (for three minutes) is accomplished by bathing things in green jello.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Count Zarth Arn]] of the League of Dark Worlds is a GalacticConqueror with ambitions of [[EvilOverlord taking over the entire universe]]. Armed with a weapon capable of inducing horrible MindRape in its targets, Zarth Arn introduces the weapon's capabilities by mentally torturing a spaceship full of people to death once they try to destroy the weapon. Zarth Arn plots to oust the Emperor from power with his weapon and eventually opts to [[EarthShatteringKaboom blow up the planet]] his weapon is located in by luring the Emperor there with the prospect of finding his own lost son. Once thinking the Emperor dead, Zarth Arn proceeds to try and obliterate the Emperor's own home planet and the billions on it to secure his reign on the universe and slaughters all the fleets that comes between him and victory in the process.

* {{Robosexual}}: Elle the robot and the heroine Stella Starr have far, ''far'' more chemistry and emotion between them than any other characters in the film.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Watch Stella when she has no lines. It is clear the actress had no direction from the director beyond "pout and look like you are paying attention."

** What exactly, was the fireman's pole in the center of the Count's mezzanine for? One mook uses it, but beyond that it just seems to get in the way. RuleOfCool maybe? If so, fail!

* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/HamiltonCamp voices Elle, over a decade before he'd voice [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales robotic fowl Gizmoduck]].

* HilariousInHindsight: Swords made of lasers? That is so obviously ripped off from Star Wars. But, then a character shows up with a laser beam coming out of, what appears to be, a ring on his finger, which seems like anticipating Mel Brooks' ''Spaceballs''.

** {{Subverted}} in that he would've succeeded in killing all of them, if the Emperor's ship didn't have the ability to ''[[AssPull stop time.]]''
