The season 3 theme song is performed by Lil' Romeo, who also appears as himself in "Romeo in the Mix".
When Ritchie gains superpowers in season three, he considers Hardware as his hero name. Virgil says it's already in use. This is a reference to the comic book "Hardware", published by the same company (Milestone Media/DC Comics) that published the original "Static" comics, which both created by series producer, Denys Cowan.
In the first episode, "A Shock To The System", Virgil is trying on different costumes. One of the costumes he tries on is that of Black Vulcan, the African-American hero from "Superfriends".
In the pilot episode, Static is trying on different superhero outfits and briefly wears the outfit of Superfriends character Black Vulcan (another superhero with electricity powers). On Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law, Phil LaMarr (who voices Static) has a recurring role as Black Vulcan.
Static was originally meant to encounter the Teen Titans, until the character rights were held for the upcoming Teen Titans.
Another black superhero, Black Lightning, created by Tony Isabella, was originally intended to guest star. However, DC comics who owns the rights to the character would not license the character for the episode. So the episode was rewritten, and an older superhero, Soul Power was created for the episode.
