* ActorAllusion: Levi Stubbs plays Mother Brain, who sounds and acts ''exactly'' like Audrey II from ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors''.
* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: "Oh, hey there, Kid Icarus... Uhh, not going by Pit anymore, I take it?"
** This was actually deliberately done so the cast would be forced to say the name of Pit's video game as much as possible, thus increasing brand awareness.
** Mother Brain is the evil ruler of planet Metroid (not Zebes). Actual Metroids only show up briefly in the comic.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Mother Brain's VA is Four Tops singer Levi Stubbs, better known as the blood-craving plant Audrey II on the movie adaptation of ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors.''
** Four of the actors went on to provide voices in WesternAnimation/BeastWars: Gary Chalk (King Hippo, Donkey Kong, additional) would play Optimus Primal, Doug Parker (Mega Man) would play Terrorsaur, James Ian Corlett (Dr. Wily) would play Cheetor, and Creator/VenusTerzo (Princess Lana) would play Black Arachnia. Incidentially, Corlett would voice Mega Man in the [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan Ruby-Spears cartoon]].
** Creator/FrankWelker (too many credits to reference) voiced Game Boy. Welker used the same voice he used as J.I.N.X. the robot in ''[=SpaceCamp=]''.
** Kevin himself is voiced by Creator/MattHill.
** Lana's father is voiced by Long John Baldry, best known as the voice of [[AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Sega's leading villian]]. Gary Chalk and Ian James Corlett would also play Grounder and Coconuts, respectively in that same series.
** VideoGame/KidIcarus is voiced by Alessandro Juliani. You might know him best as the ill-fated Lt. Felix Gaeta on ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]'', the genius detective, L, from the show ''Manga/DeathNote'', or as Emil Hamilton on ''{{Smallville}}''.
*** He also reunited with three of the above-mentioned actors when he played Nightscream on ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' (guess which actors).
** If the appearance of Link, Zelda and Ganon weren't enough for the series, they have the same voices they had on TheSuperMarioBrothersSuperShow's [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda cartoon]].
** The Eggplant Wizard is voiced by Michael Donovan, who years later went on to voice Mr. Greenrind (a watermelon) and quite a few of the [[JustForPun fruity]] characters on WesternAnimation/CoconutFredsFruitSaladIsland.
* MissingEpisode: At least in the [=DVD=] set.
** The aforementioned ClipShow episode for the aforementioned reason.
** "How's Bayou", well, [[SubvertedTrope sorta]]... There were two versions of the episode. The original was never completed, due to time constraints, but when the series was picked up for syndication, a second, more common version was shown with additional scenes and dialogue to keep the storyline in place, but with other dialogue taken out as well. Only the original was included on the [=DVD=] set, and the more common syndicated version is nowhere to be found in that set.
* RecursiveAdaptation: One of the NES games featured was "Puss in Boots: Pero's Great Adventure". Which was itself was based on an {{Anime}} movie based on two different works of classic literature (Literature/PussInBoots and Literature/AroundTheWorldInEightyDays).
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original premise was [[http://www.nintendoplayer.com/the-man-behind-captain-nintendo/chapter-4-enter-captain-nintendo drastically different]].
** And [[http://filbarlow.deviantart.com/#/d55x9tu another version of that premise]] by Fil Barlow was also drastically different in drastic ways from the previous one.
