  • Actor Allusion:
  • Dawson Casting: We have an interesting case involving Juliet Starling, and her sisters Rosalind and Cordelia. Juliet is 18 while Tara Strong was 39 when the game came out. Cordelia is the older sister at age 20, but was voiced by Linda Cardellini , who was 2 years younger. On the flip side, Rosalind is the younger sister at age 16, yet is voiced by Kimberly Brooks , who is 5 years older.

  • Fake Brit: Zed, one the Dark Purveyors and the first official boss fight, is based on the British punk revolution, has some Northern pronunciation of his swears, and quotes The Sex Pistols "Nevermind the Ballocks" and quotes The Clash song "London is Calling". Zed is voiced by James Euringer (a.k.a Jimmy Urine), an American musician who composed the soundtrack for the game.
  • Name's the Same: Cordelia, an expert with a sniper rifle and big sister to a monster hunter. Not Cordelia, hopeless with a gun and ally/enemy to a monster hunter.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Ryu, the zombie cop, resembles a young "Weird Al" Yankovic
  • The Other Darrin: Juliet in the Japanese version, where she's voiced by a different voice actress depending on platform: Eri Kitamura in the Xbox 360 version, and Yōko Hikasa in the PlayStation 3 version.
  • Playing Against Type:
  • Production Posse: Yet another James Gunn project involving his brother Sean and Michael Rooker in some capacity.
  • Real Song Theme Tune: Numerous. Ranging from Lollipop by The Chordettes to the notorious You Spin Me Right Round (Like a Record) by Dead or Alive, to Mickey by Toni Basil.
  • Screwed by the Network: The game has almost no support on XBL and PSN outside of achievements and rankings. No DLC, no background themes or user icons, not even the preview trailer for the game proper. The 360 won't even acknowledge the game's existence unless you physically have the disk in the drive. From a practical standpoint, what this means is that if you didn't preorder the game, whether it be because you wanted to wait till it was cheaper or were too young to play M-rated (or equivalent) games at the time, and you want the pre-order DLC, you're out of luck. Websites such as the game's fan-wiki and The Cutting Room Floor say that the pre-order costumes are actually hidden away on the disc (similarly to Street Fighter X Tekken), but no one has currently made any cheats to access them.
