!!The games
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: ''Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing'' is the U.S debut of Zobio and Zobiko, as ''House of the Dead EX'' was only released in Japan. However, ''All-Stars Racing'' never got a Japanese release.
* NamesTheSame: James Taylor and his partner Gary Stewart just happen to share the names of two well-known singer/songwriters from the 1970's. It's unknown whether this was a deliberate ShoutOut or a mere coincidence.
* NoExportForYou: ''Typing of the Dead 2'' and ''House of the Dead EX'' was never released outside of Japan.
** With exactly one exception: One Sega-operated arcade in China had it, presumably as an attempted location test. However, it never made it off the ground, and when the arcade closed, the machine left with it.
** Made worse when you realize that the main characters, Zobio and Zobiko, are in ''SonicAndSegaAllStarsRacing'', [[FridgeHorror but the game that they actually star in never even got a worldwide release.]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast port of ''House of the Dead 2'' was originally supposed to include the original ''[=HotD=]'' with improved graphics as an EmbeddedPrecursor, but it was never completed due to time constraints. An especially tragic example, because the only home versions of the game that ever did see release were two severely downgraded ports for the PC and UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn.

!!The film
* ActorAllusion: Given when the protagonists meet Captain Victor Kirk:
-->'''Simon''': Oh great, here comes the [[Film/DasBoot u-boat captain]].
* CreatorBacklash: It may come as a surprise to learn that Uwe Boll considers the film to be an absolute pile of crap, and his worst film to date. However, he insists that this is in no way, shape, or form down to him, and that the screenplay (which he couldn't make any changes to) was to blame.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/DasBoot Jürgen Prochnow]] is Captain Kirk.
** Creator/ClintHoward appears yet again in a weirdo role.
** [[Manga/DragonBall Android 18]] is Karma.
** [[Series/{{Wonderfalls}} Eric Gotts]]/[[Series/BeingErica Ethan Wakefield]] is Simon.
** FinalGirl [[Film/Halloween4TheReturnOfMichaelMyers Rachel]] is Casper.
** [[Series/StargateSG1 Anubis]] is Castillo.
** [[Series/{{Smallville}} Lois Lane]] is Johanna.
