* TheCameo:
** The eyecatch illustration from episode 1 appears in the ''Manga/HappyLesson'' OVA.
** Some Panous-Panous, along with Pink à la Mode and Black Beaujolais, appear in the opening fight of another French indie production, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fca3UETyp_o DAMNED Next]]''.
** The whole team (minus Yellow) appears in the opening of another French indie production, ''[[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xfw51_bitoman-14-part1_fun#.UWi2Gyt5zjQ Bitoman]]'', where they are dismissed by the local villain because "[their] costumes aren't trendy enough" (they were in civilian clothes).
*** This is a full-circle ShoutOut as a parody prototype of France Five appeared in [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x90fn4_bitoman-12-part-1-2-1998-99-version_fun Episode 12]] of Bitoman which also had involvement from series creator Alex Pilot and GoToon (singer of the France Five themes pre-Episode 4 and the actor who played Cancrelax). Part of this design inspired the initial prototype and Mark 1 suits seen in Episode 1.
* TheOtherDarrin:
** Catherine/Pink à la Mode. The original actress left during the production of episode 3. This unfortunately happened before they could record the ADR so there is a jarring difference between her out-of-suit and in-suit lines. Starting episode 4, Catherine was played by a new actress who looked nothing like her... complete with a new costume.
** Because of the stretch of time between episodes, there have been a few other minor cast change-ups. Most notable, Margarine, the team's RobotGirl.
* PropRecycling / ActorAllusion: In episode 6, the {{BFG}} that [[spoiler:vaporizes Succulard is identical to Caleb's Nuclear Gun from ''Series/FlandersCompany''. Ruddy Pomarede plays both Caleb and Succulard.]]
* RecycledSoundtrack:
** The main theme for Episodes 1-2 is a re-dubbing of the theme for ''Series/ChoudenshiBioman'', before being traded for original music from Episode 3 onward.
** The music featured in Episodes 1-2 is pulled extensively from 80s Sentai series like ''Bioman'', ''Liveman'', ''Flashman'', and ''Jetman'', along with cues from then-current Sentai shows ''Series/GoGoV'' and ''Timeranger''.
** Episode 2 on its own utilizes several tracks from VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution for the club scenes.
* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: Episode 5 was in post-production for 7 years. This is lampshaded in the credits of the finale.
