* AccidentalInnuendo: "It's so nice to be turned on again."
* AssPull: "Imperial battleship! Halt... the flow of time!"
* CriticalResearchFailure: Thor and L follow Stella and Akton's "friction trail" through space.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Elle the robot.
* HamAndCheese: Christopher Plummer is deliciously hammy.
* {{Narm}}: [[spoiler:Thor's death]]: "These deadly rays will be your death!" Also, pretty much anything the Emperor of the Galaxy says.
* SoBadItsGood: You really have to admire the amount of HamAndCheese this whole movie contains. It's glorious. It's even better with the botched English dub.
* SpecialEffectFailure: Like ''StarWars'', the first minute or so of the film consists of shots of a giant spaceship. Unlike ''StarWars'', the spaceship looks like it's made of Lego (you can actually see they used model-car runners pasted *intact* on the ship sides) and space looks like it's full of Christmas lights. Later, during the space battles, you can see the strings the ships are moving on (and don't worry if you miss them the first time: the scenes are reused). Also, halting the flow of time (for three minutes) is accomplished by bathing things in green jello.
* WhatAnIdiot: Zarth Arn's masterful plan to stop the heroes from destroying his ultimate weapon is [[spoiler:to lure them onto said weapon and then blow it up]].
