- Pai Mei's three-inch punch is a reference to Bruce Lee's three-inch knock-out punch.
- Originally, the Kill Bill films were planned as one epic four hour film.
- The film's entire first reel is presented in black and white.
- Robert Rodriguez scored this movie for one dollar. Quentin Tarantino said he would repay him, by directing a segment of Rodriguez's project Sin City (2005) for one dollar.
- Quentin Tarantino originally intended to only have Pai Mei's lips speaking Cantonese, while his voice would be in English, imitating a bad dub job. Tarantino was going to provide the voice himself. In the end, Tarantino abandoned this idea, and Pai Mei (Chia-Hui Liu) speaks in his own voice.
- It is a common fan theory that Samuel L. Jackson's character of Rufus, the piano playing drifter, is actually Jules Winfield, from Pulp Fiction (1994). At the end of Pulp Fiction, Jules says he wants to "Become a drifter, and walk the earth." In Kill Bill Vol. 2, Rufus at one point says "I was a drifter..." while telling his story in the church. However, there is no proof to this theory, because when Rufus says "I was a drifter," he also says "I was a Coaster, and I was a Temptation. If they came through Texas, I played with them," inferring that he played back-up for the bands The Drifters, The Coasters, and The Temptations." Whether or not Rufus is actually Jules Winfield, telling tall tales, only Tarantino knows for sure.
- In an earlier draft of the script, Beatrix Kiddo doesn't remove Elle Driver's remaining eye, Elle is killed by having her throat slit. In the final film, however, Beatrix Kiddo leaves Elle Driver alive.
- Michael Jai White filmed several scenes in this movie with David Carradine, but these were cut from the final film, due to pacing concerns. A lengthy confrontation between the two, is the only deleted scene on the Vol. 2 DVD.
