* BigNo: As Tima [[spoiler: falls to her death]], Kenichi does this. However, in the original Japanese version, he just yells out her name.

* StuffBlowingUp: In a ''very'' impressive sequence, Rock manually activates the Ziggurat superweapon while its still in cool-down (the equivalent of a ICBM exploding while still in its own silo), triggering the destruction of the superstructure and surrounding district. It inadvertently [[spoiler: saves Kenichi from Tima, as she's disconnected from the systems that have taken control of her.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Appropriate considering the characters stem from the designs of Osamu Tezuka, each of the main characters is an expy of those featured in {{Anime/AstroBoy}}:
** Duke Red is a blatant expy of Dr. Umataro Tenma/Dr. Boynton/Dr. Balthus from his views on his robotic ward to control mankind to his birdlike nose
** Tima is a blatant expy of Astro given her identity as a humanoid robot built in the image of deceased child and destined for grand schemes by the villain
** Rock is a blatant expy of Rock Holmes and even shares his appearance from the hairstyle and shades to his usage of firearms.

* TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized: The first thing Atlas and his worker rebellion does to fight against city corruption is shoot the robot police detective who pleads to handle matters peacefully before leading the revolution which leaves Metropolis and the worker class in tatters and ashes. Before his death, Atlas laments the entire revolution was a trap set by Duke Red to get rid of human opposition.



* TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified: Subverted. While it's clear that the government here needs to be toppled, Atlas's [[spoiler: murder of Pero and the subsequent wanton violence by the riot/rebellion]] shows that the "revolution" isn't all that good either.
* UnwittingPawn: Atlas and the president.

* AGodAmI: Or rather, "A Goddess I'll make!" Doesn't turn out well.

to:

* AGodAmI: Or rather, "A Goddess I'll make!" courtesy of Duke Red who despises how humans are ruled by emotions and inferior robots, so he has Tima created as a supreme creation to rule over the world as a computer weapon with Red in charge. Doesn't turn out well.

* TheDragon: Averted. Rock appears to be set up as Duke Red's Dragon for the first two minutes, then they have a chilly conversation and work at cross-purposes for the rest of the movie.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: A colorful, pastel city of equally plush robots who are willing to do your bidding, not to mention trustworthy people in charge. Oooh, and look, someone built a huge tower. Perfect vacation landmark, right? Until you realize what the huge tower is really for, and how corrupt the officials really are.

Perfect vacation landmark, right? Until you realize what the huge tower is really for, and how corrupt the officials really are. Not to mention the massive degree of discrimination towards lower class workers who are forced to work and live in slums while also hating robots who are similarly discriminated against for taking their jobs.
