  • Harrison Ford takes issue with Ridley Scott's revelation that Deckard is a replicant. "We had agreed that he definitely was not a replicant," Ford said.
  • A model of the Dark Star spaceship from the film Dark Star is also used as a building. It can be seen behind the Asain billboard when Gaff's spinner is approaching the Police building.
  • The end of the chess game in which Sebastian, with help from Batty, defeats Tyrell, is inspired by the real-life "Immortal Game" (so-called) in which Adolf Anderssen beat Lionel Kieseritzky in London in 1851.
  • Exasperated crews often referred to the film as "Blood Runner".
  • The ending that features Deckard and Rachael driving in the countryside contains unused footage from Stanley Kubrick's Shining, The.
