Trivia / Star Driver

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Katashiro smokes, has an eyepatch and brown hair... sounds like a fusion of two roles Shinichiro Miki played a while ago. In fact, when we see his younger self in episode 20, even accounting for art style differences, he looked exactly like Lockon.
    • Takuto and his childhood friend Natsuo are voiced by Mamoru Miyano and Miyu Irino respectively. This is not the first time they have been together.
  • Fan Nickname: Lady Sugaga for Sugata, due to the Absolute Cleavage and peacock feathers of his Crux outfit.
    • Mami Yano gained the rather obvious nickname of Freckles.
  • I Knew It: Keito being a Maiden.
    • Marino being a Tomato in the Mirror.
    • Head being Takuto's father.
    • Sugata eventually being a member of the Glittering Crux.
  • What Could Have Been: The movie starts out with a scene taking place some time after the end of the show, depicting Takuto (in Tauburn), Wako, and Sugata confronting resurrected Cybodies in a large city, with no explanation as to what is going on or why this is occurring. This is the only new footage in the film, as it proceeds to recap the entire series afterwards. Many fans were understandably put off by this, with many theorizing the original idea was to do something akin to series like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, who got the movie treatment but ultimately changed things in a major way or added brand new footage, especially in TTGL's second movie. Unfortunately, the movie for Star Driver was a Franchise Killer for some, and as a result we'll probably never see where said scene was going.
