* HeAlsoDid: Katsuhisa Hattori, who composed the music for the original TV series and films, would go on to produce the scores for a number of anime TV series and movies, including ''InfiniteRyvius'' and ''ArgentoSoma''.
* ThrowItIn: A bird lands on top of the laser gun of the Krankor ship, and stays on it ever as it starts twisting around. Doubles as a TheyJustDidntCare since the filmmakers didn't seem motivated enough to stop filming in order to remove it.
