* AssPull: {{Lampshaded}} when Mira turns out to have MindControl abilities.
* CargoShip: XR shows signs of having a crush on Mira, although it's one-sided on his part. Then there was the episode where the team's ship, Fourty-Two, became sentient. Can you say [[UpToEleven Double]] CargoShip?
** Is it really "Cargo Ship" if it's between two sapient life forms?

* EarWorm: "Let's Make Peace", a song written and performed by [[Creator/MontyPython Eric]] [[{{Spamalot}} Idle]] for the episode "War and Peace [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment and War]]".
* {{Expy}}: [[BigBad Zurg]] may be one of [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] of all people; he's the series titular character's greatest enemy, [[CardCarryingVillain he self-identifies as Evil]], he tries to conquer everything he lays eyes on, he ''always'' shows up at inopportune moments to make things worse, he always comes back no matter how many times he's defeated, he's responsible - or at least related to - pretty much anything villainous that happens in the series, ''and he even has horns!'' If Bowser ever tried on a [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] suit, the two would be virtually indistinguishable.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One of Zurg's lines in "Stranger Invasion" suddenly gets very disturbing after seeing ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''.
--> ''''Zurg'''': And if I may remind you, no [[Franchise/StarWars giant]] [[Film/ANewHope trash compactor]]! When heroes fall in, they always have enough time to figure a way out! Make it [[spoiler:an incinerator]]!
* GainaxEnding: How does the final fight between the Galactic Alliance and the Evil Empire conclude? [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn Does Warp Darkmatter return to Star Command]]]]? Do Mira and Romac live happily ever after? Is there a connection between Jessie from Toy Story 2 and Dr. Ozma Furbanna?
* GeniusBonus: Natron the First, the "Living Mummy". The mineral natron was one of the important ingredients in the mummification process in AncientEgypt.
** Also, to get to Planet Rozwell, you need to go through the Mogul system. A Project Mogul balloon was said to be the cause of the RealLife Roswell Incident.
* HarsherInHindsight: In "Eye of the Tempest," a mutated super villain wrecks a power station made up of two generating towers. The first one is damaged without much comment... But as the second comes down, Mira shouts, "Look out! The other tower!" amid falling rubble. Chilling in hindsight, as WTC North would do the same less than a year later.
* HilariousInHindsight: The show does a episode (one of two actually) with Buzz and Booster crash landing on a world called Rozwell where they're the aliens and the residents are the stereotypical green/gray alien the media usually depicts. (green skin, blacks eyes bald head, etc) Yet their town is effectively just like a normal human town. A few years after the show ends its run, a movie called ''WesternAnimation/{{Planet 51}}'' is made detailing...you guessed it (though their aliens are different looking the premise is the same). What makes it funny? It's a CGI movie made by another company and this show was co-produced by Pixar, whose forte is CGI movies.
** Wayne Knight voicing Zurg becomes especially hilarious when one remembers that the wrong Buzz Lightyear once speculated that Al, who was also voiced by Wayne Knight, was one of Zurg's minions when they inform him that he was the guy who kidnapped Woody in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2''.
* MagnificentBastard: NOS-4-A2 surely qualifies.
* TearJerker: A surprising number of episodes approach this. The reunion of Mira and her ex in the midst of battle is one of the most effective.
* UglyCute: Villainess Gravitina is actually very beautiful, but has a very large head.
* UnfortunateImplications: "Waaaaait a minute, no school shuttle driver's that nice..."
