Future Retro Hero Story actually makes fun of real American pulp Sci-fi book series from the 30's and 40's. More precisely, Lensman by E. E. 'Doc' Smith and Captain Future by Edmond Hamilton. So if your a fan of those two book series be on the lookout for numerous references and injokes in Future Retro Hero Story.

Yet another Sci-fi related Trivia fact: In Future Retro Hero Story, there is a robot character called Goth. He also bears resemblance to Gort (no surprise there) from the American 1951 film, 'The Day the Earth stood still'.

Some characters from Future Retro Hero Story show up again in the spin-off series 'Outlaw Star'. Urt, Ark, and Handull of the 12 head priests show up in esp. 23 'Hot Springs Planet Tenrei' in the Outlaw Star anime series. And even Kohryu aka Lau Hunglung of the head priests and Space Forces member Azell appear in Gene's dreams in the recent Outlaw Star mangas.

In volume 5, page 152: You can see Paffy and Adeu from Ryu Knight (anime and manga) walking down a crowded street.
