  • Creator's Apathy: Semi-joked about by LittleKuriboh, who's admitted multiple times that this show was not his biggest priority.
  • Refitted for Sequel: Gouzu and Meizu parody Scratch and Grounder from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. According to LK, this is because Steve Lumis and Steve Umbra from his other web series, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series, were originally going to parody Scratch and Grounder rather than parody the Mooninites from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

  • Throw It In: In the movie commentary, LittleKuriboh mentions that he accidentally mispronounced "nuclear" as "nucular" while recording. Instead of redoing the line, he decided to put in a quick subtitle saying "Ninjas can't pronounce nuclear" as a joke.
  • What Could Have Been: The Spoof Movie Commentary reveals that LittleKuriboh had many different scripts before settling on the final result. According to him, however, they're not quite as good.
    • Naruto's pitch to the Princess was initially twice the length of the final version, and it was meant to be foreshadowing as to how the movie would end.
    • Early drafts had the film crew be Team Four Star, and the villain was a self-deprecating exaggeration of Little Kuriboh. The plot was also going to be about abridgers making a movie.
    • Later drafts had Doto (the M. Night Shyamalan character in the final version) as a caricature of Tim Burton. LittleKuriboh ultimately decided against it since Burton had too many good movies on his record to be considered worse than Michael Bay and George Lucas.

    • The Princess was supposed to actually be important, and in one of the earlier drafts she was a Gender Flipped stand-in for Vic Mignogna. LK realized that she was ultimately a pointless character who ate up too much time, so her role was reduced to only saying "Whatever" as a Running Gag.
    • In most of the drafts, the film crew's slaughter was going to be played straight... until Mood Whiplash set in with a cut to Michael Bay being shown to have filmed everything.
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: LK claims that The Movie was written and created in a week, and his pre-production process was more or less him just sitting down and riffing on the original and collecting the ones he found to be the best. Even after finalizing the script, the second half of the movie was effectively being written during the editing process.
