* Speaking of Mohawk, drinking the Spider Serum not only turns him into a gremlin-arachnid centaur, but it somehow makes his ''upper half'' grow larger, beyond the proportions of his original gremlin form. Were the Splice of Life geneticists trying to create giant spiders?

* What would have happened if each of the Gremlins took the Sunblock solution? (Pun not really intended.) This could also count as FridgeLogic directed at the Brain Gremlin for not even considering the idea after injecting it in Bat Gremlin.

* What happens in the genetics laboratory and often enough that it warrants storing ''automatic weapons'' there?
* if you think about it, gizmo is killing his own children!

* WordOfGod is that Mohawk is the literal reincarnation of Stripe, while some of the others are at least implied to be reincarnations of gremlins from the first movie, complete with all or at least most of their memories. Let that sink in: even if humans have no afterlife, gremlins have the potential to live forever. Now imagine if they used their past experiences to avoid making the same mistakes as their predecessors. Just like how a disease can evolve immunity to vaccines, gremlins could be nearly impossible to kill, forcing humanity to move to some desert planet like Tatooine or Dune.

* The potential consequences of the electric gremlin escaping into the main power lines. Imagine grabbing something from the fridge for your late-night snack, and as you close the door and walk away, huge sparks start shooting out of it as the electric gremlin emerges behind you. ''Literal'' fridge horror.

* How does a gender-flipping serum work on an ''asexual'' creature?
** It doesn't. Look at the Gremlins' faces in the second movie, and I mean REALLY look, and you'll notice there is clear sexual dimorphism in the species. Of course, considering how they reproduce, it would fall under PurelyAestheticGender or something.
* Daffy hid in a vat of noodles. Wouldn't the water in the vat cause him to multiply? Also, how were his siblings able to invade a television studio with all those stage lights?
** Again, not pure water, as explained on the headscratchers page. As for the stage lights, good question.
** Well, they fear sunlight because it is deadly to them. Artificial light is probably harmless once they overcome their fear of it.
*** I'll add another thing. The studio lights were dimmed, if not failing entirely. They pretty much made sure that the light levels were within short term tolerances.

** I wish to point out that you could make a drinking game out of how many times the rule about bright lights is completely ignored shortly after that scene, and also that the Electric Gremlin destroyed all the Gremlins, NOT bright light.

* Mohawk's tormenting of Gizmo isn't just the standard Gremlin-being-mean, but because [[{{Reincarnation}} he remembers that Gizmo killed him the last time.]]
