  • Ass Pull: Lampshaded when Mira turns out to have Mind Control abilities.
  • Cargo Ship: XR shows signs of having a crush on Mira, although it's one-sided on his part. Then there was the episode where the team's ship, Fourty-Two, became sentient. Can you say Double Cargo Ship?
  • Complete Monster: Despite only appearing in the episode "Planet of the Lost", Flint leaves his mark as one of the most chilling villains in the series. Seemingly a heroic (if grim and none too friendly) and rugged leader of a scavenger world of those who crashed their space ships due to his robotic Shriekers, in reality, he is a heartless slave driver who orders his Shriekers to destroy all technology, including sentient robots, to keep his slaves in line, crushes any sense of hope or progress they can achieve for his own sick pleasure, and forces them to work for days on end. He then has his Shriekers mercilessly lay waste to the entire village just to get at a single sentient robot, XR, despite his claims that he cares about his slaves. After attempting to murder the Space Rangers, he reveals his true nature as a robot with a petty excuse (he was tired of being a stockboy being yelled at by organics!) for evil, who then orders his Shriekers to destroy organic life indiscriminately to keep up his façade, outright refusing to turn them off when asked, hating organics when even captured and reduced to a head for his crimes.
  • Ear Worm: "Let's Make Peace", a song written and performed by Eric Idle for the episode "War and Peace and War".
  • Funny Aneurysm Moment: One of Zurg's lines in "Stranger Invasion" suddenly gets very disturbing after seeing Toy Story 3.

  'Zurg': And if I may remind you, no giant trash compactor! When heroes fall in, they always have enough time to figure a way out! Make it an incinerator!

  • Genius Bonus: Natron the First, the "Living Mummy". The mineral natron was one of the important ingredients in the mummification process in Ancient Egypt
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In "Eye of the Tempest," a mutated super villain wrecks a power station made up of two generating towers. The first one is damaged without much comment... But as the second comes down, Mira shouts, "Look out! The other tower!" amid falling rubble. Chilling in hindsight, as WTC North would do the same less than a year later.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The show does a episode (one of two actually) with Buzz and Booster crash landing on a world called Rozwell where they're the aliens and the residents are the stereotypical green/gray alien the media usually depicts. (green skin, blacks eyes bald head, etc) Yet their town is effectively just like a normal human town. A few years after the show ends its run, a movie called Planet 51 is made guessed it (though their aliens are different looking the premise is the same). What makes it funny? It's a CGI movie made by another company and this show was co-produced by Pixar, whose forte is CGI movies.
    • Wayne Knight voicing Zurg becomes especially hilarious when one remembers that the wrong Buzz Lightyear once speculated that Al, who was also voiced by Wayne Knight, was one of Zurg's minions when they inform him that he was the guy who kidnapped Woody in Toy Story 2.
  • Magnificent Bastard: NOS-4-A2 is a contender.
  • Moral Event Horizon: NOS-4-A2 plans to turn everyone in the galaxy to he can devour them.
    • The one-off villain Flint crosses it by ordering {[spoiler|his entire village levelled to be rid of a single robot to keep up his facade, while at the same time being a robot himself!}}
  • Tear Jerker: A surprising number of episodes approach this. The reunion of Mira and her ex in the midst of battle is one of the most effective.
  • Ugly Cute: Villainess Gravitina is actually very beautiful, but has a very large head.
    • There's this centaur-like Space Ranger who's utterly adorable even with a single eye.
  • Unfortunate Implications: "Waaaaait a minute, no school shuttle driver's that nice..."
