In a scene played for laughs, a character is teleported and arrives with head and arms on backward. This is quickly fixed with no lasting issues.

After Dark Helmet captures Princess Vespa, there's a scene in which he speaks as if he's about to rape her, but it turns out that he is playing with miniature dolls of the cast. He does act out forcing himself on Vespa for a kiss with the dolls.

Two times: The character is not really human.
Once someone else is eating parts of that character.
The second time the audience is told that he ate himself until he died.

Since the joke is that they know that they are in a movie, the "bad guys" can watch into the future and see things happening in the movie. They use that to find the location of the "good guys" by watching the movie.
