* AcceptableTargets: Politicians.
--> '''Zurg''': Innocent politicians?! Don't be oxymoronic!
* 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?
%% Complete Monster - Evil Buzz Lightyear and NOS-4-A2 removed per the Complete Monster Cleanup Thread. Do not add them back without approval
* EarWorm: "Let's Make Peace", a song written and performed by Creator/EricIdle for the episode "War and Peace [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment and War]]".
* 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]]!
* 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 Roswell, 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 Roswell 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''.
** Another villain, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Norbert Klerm]], was voiced by Mitchell Whitfield, who would later voice a much more important villain in [[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} another Disney action series]].
* InkSuitActor: Ty Parsec resembles his voice actor, Steve Hytner, down to the brown hair, face shape, and lines around his mouth.
* IronWoobie: Ty. He's been rescued by Buzz 50+ times, and yet he still keeps on trying to do his job and never thinks about quitting.
* ItWasHisSled: If you saw the show before watching the movie, you would know that Warp Darkmatter didn't actually die.
* MagnificentBastard: NOS-4-A2 surely qualifies.
* MildlyMilitary: Star Command does possess some form of militaristic discipline and rule regulation, but they seem lax otherwise.
* UglyCute: Villainess Gravitina is actually very beautiful, but has a very large head.
!!YMMV tropes for the video game:
* ThatOneLevel: Canis Lunis 2 is thought of as the hardest level in the game. For one, it [[UnexpectedGameplayChange changes the gameplay from racing to fighting waves of enemies in various rooms]] (a very tedious process in on itself), all while trying to disable the many bombs throughout the level. It also happens to be the [[MarathonLevel longest level]] in the game, and dying or letting a bomb explode at any point forces you to replay it from the start.
