- Awesome Music: The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra recorded an orchestral version of the theme, and it sounds exactly as awesome as you'd expect. It's even better when it's paired up to the opening credits, as this video demonstrates.
- Ear Worm: Just try getting "SOS" out of your head once you hear it.
- Fashion-Victim Villain: Cy-Star seems to have a particular love of anything shiny, feathery, or just plain flamboyant when it comes to clothes.
- Ho Yay: Yung-Star seems quite taken with King Richard III in "My Kingdom For a ZEAF".
Lord Tempo: "We should not take him with us."Yung-Star: "But he's so handsome!"
- Visual Effects of Awesome: As is expected from a Gerry Anderson show. Plenty of explosions to be had.
- What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: For a kids' show, this series has some mild swearing. For example, the word "god" is uttered at several points, and in "Thunder Path", Mary clearly says "bitchy". Also, the humor derived from Hiro's thick Japanese accent can be interpreted as racist.
