  • Pity the Kidnapper: Minnie proves too much for the lead biker to handle; she throws all of his stuff out, cleans his sidecar with a vacuum cleaner, removes his tattoos with the same vacuum cleaner, and cleans his goggles as he's driving. She drives him so crazy that he hands her back to Mickey, saying "Here, take her! She's nuts!"
  • Sentient Vehicle: Mickey's scooter, as well as the biker gang's motorcycles.
  • Shout-Out: The leader of the Road Hogs has a name tag saying "Boss". He's a Boss Hog, get it?
