* AntiHero: Of the KnightInSourArmor variety. He doesn't see himself as a good man. He killed a police officer and his brother, and has a hard time dealing with the guilt. However, he is a rather unambiguous good guy in every other capacity.
* TheAtoner: To the point that this is what the eponymous "Salvation" was referring to in the title. This is as much Marcus's personal story to forgive himself and save his humanity as it is a story about ''saving humanity itself''.
* BadassLongcoat: He steals it from a corpse.
* BigNo: When [[spoiler:he discovers that he is a Terminator.]]
* CrucifiedHeroShot: He is put on a cross-like hanging structure [[spoiler:when the Resistance discovers his true nature.]]
* {{Cyborg}}: [[spoiler:He has a cybernetic endoskeleton harboring his brain and heart. According to art designs and the ''Terminator'' novels, he keeps his digestive tract and minor organs and it's his own heart what powers him, which makes him a "real" cyborg as opposed to the rest of Terminators, whose human parts are just a sophisticated masquerade.]]
* {{Delinquent}}: During his past life.
* {{Determinator}}: [[RunningGag No pun intended.]] This is best highlighted when he refuses to give in to Skynet's EvilGloating and instead [[spoiler: tears the control chip out of his own head]].
* DespairEventHorizon: He doesn't suffer just ''one'', either. His first happens offscreen before the movie starts, whereupon he killed a cop and kind of just gave up on himself. The next happens when he wakes up in a post-apocalyptic nightmare despite his last memory being of a prison execution. The next one happens when he's captured by the Resistance and [[spoiler: revealed as a Terminator]].
* FragileSpeedster: [[spoiler:In comparison to other machines]]. Due to his inherent weaknesses, he can't entirely outfight a Terminator, but he can outmanuever them.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Gives his heart to John Connor so he can live on to guide the revolution.]]
* ManchurianAgent: [[spoiler: He's Skynet's final solution to the Infiltrator problem: a machine that believes he's still human, rather than merely ''pretending'' to be human.]]
* NakedOnArrival: When he awakens at the beginning of the film.
* ReplacementMooks: [[spoiler: Skynet has been trying to create more convincing Infiltrator units for ''decades''. The problem was that all of the Terminators, in some way, fell into the UncannyValley no matter how convincing they were at casual glance. Marcus is the first unit to ever completely fool humanity, because he himself believes that he's human.]]
* RescueRomance: With Blair.
* SawedOffShotgun: He taught the method to Reese.
* TomatoInTheMirror: A particularly harsh example.
* YouAreWhatYouHate: [[spoiler: He's a Terminator, one of the things that humanity is on the run from.]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[spoiler: He still has human anatomy, such as a heart, nervous system, and brain, which makes him more vulnerable than fully mechanical Terminators.]]

[[folder:Hal Vukovich]]
!!Detective Sergeant Hal Vukovich

->Played by: Creator/MichaelIronsideCreator/LanceHenriksen



* BadassGrandpa: He is sixty-eight years old by the time of ''Salvation'' and more than capable of leading an entire worldwide military.
* BaldOfAwesome: He's a little thin up top.
* DaChief: He's John Connor's commanding officer during the initial years of the Resistance. He's also a hardass who doesn't take any crap from anyone--especially a supposed "messiah".
* FatalFlaw: Ashdown is a consummate military professional with decades of experience. He believes that military might, gathered under effective leadership, is the only thing that can save humanity now. To a degree, he's right--but he also has very little concern for civilians, while John Connor clearly does. He finds Connor a useful [[MagneticHero tool for bringing new Resistance recruits]], but thinks he's too young and naive to lead.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: John is famed in the franchise fo leading the resistance, but there probably wouldn't be a resistance if not for Ashdown's actions after Judgment Day.
* JumpedAtTheCall: As soon as Judgment Day happened, Ashdown sprang into action, gathering all the remaining assets and allies he could from militaries all over the world.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: The moment that Ashdown decides that civilian captives aren't worth rescuing before a nuclear strike is the moment his fate was sealed, as far as the story was concerned.
* KnightTemplar: Decides that destroying Skynet is worth dooming the human captives inside. When Connor steps out of line trying to stop him, he strips him of command.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: His son died during Judgment Day, in the Russian counterattack that Skynet provoked.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: ZigZaggedTrope. Despite being a hardass, he's respectful of Connor's contributions to the Resistance. In fact, in the novels (and in deleted scenes), he knows about Connor's knowledge of the future via a time loop and rather than just brushing it off as nonsense, he somewhat believes him but isn't just about to lay down and accept destiny, either. On the other hand, though, he thinks Connor is a false messiah and refers to him as an "informed civilian".
* SchmuckBait: When Ashdown's sources find a shutdown code in Skynet's machines, he believes that he's finally found the ultimate weapon he needed to destroy Skynet once and for all. So much so that he ignores all safety protocols and collateral damage that would result from his plans. As it turns out, he fell right into Skynet's hands, because the code was something Skynet created ''specifically'' to fool humans into relying on it.
* ShoutOut: His nickname is "Old Ironsides"--a nod to the actor that portrays him.
* WrongGenreSavvy: He thinks he's the hero in a grizzled post-apocalyptic WarFilm, as well as the OnlySaneMan in a world increasingly fooled by some wacko with a Christ-complex. What he ''doesn't'' know is that he's the arbitrary skeptic in a RobotWar story mixed with fantastic elements.

* TheQuietOne: This one only speaks one line, mimicking Kyle Reese's voice in order to lure John Connor to it. Otherwise, it never utters a single word in its default voice.
* SuperPrototype: Given that T-800s aren't supposed to exist in 2018, this particular model counts as one. For bonus points, it's even in the unit's name.

* VoiceChangeling: A standard trick employed by Terminators is to call up their target pretending to be a loved one, expressing "concern about their safety" in order to trick their target into giving up their location.
** The T-X gets a special mention because upon "acquiring" a cell phone, she emits a series of beeps and tones recognizable as a dial-up internet connection, through which she gathers information on her targets.



* GroinAttack: During the fight between T-X and T-850, the female Terminator grabs and squeezes his nuts and then [[SuperStrength lifts his body as if he's just styrofoam]] before she rams him into some fences. Could be considered funny when you realize this happened in a toilet.

* TheWorfEffect: In the comic books, a model of T-1000 is worfed by the T-X in a test fight when she disgregates him and apparently destroys him with her plasma cannon. While the canonicity of this can be discuted, it also creates an inconsistency with other sources which state that plasma cannot damage the T-1000's mass, so it remains unclear.

* CranialProcessingUnit: This applies to her.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The T-X analyses some human blood she finds by licking it...then gets an orgasmic look on her face when it comes back as belonging to John Connor.
* ElectronicEyes[=/=]RoboCam: As is the case with other Terminators, she has a bluish-black variant of these.
* EmotionlessGirl: She's a Terminator, so it goes without saying, but her ability to show emotion and human behavior is not particularly high compared with other Terminator models. However, finding out that she's stumbled upon John Conner in addition to her previous hitlist seems to, err, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "turn her on"]].
* EvilIsSexy: InvokedTrope for various reasons.
* FingertipDrugAnalysis: The T-X analyzes blood samples this way. Unlike a human cop she's highly unlikely to be poisoned as a result of tasting something nasty. Of course, this was mostly used as an excuse to have the actress suck on [[EroticEating her finger]], given that it's Kristanna Loken and all.

* {{Hackette}}: She can control machines by infecting them with nanomachines.
* HackYourEnemy: Capable of remotely controlling other machines, including Terminators, after injecting them with nanites.
* HeadsUpDisplay: Has these in her ElectronicEyes.

* HyperspaceArsenal: Has several weapons, including an ArmCannon and a flamethrower.
* GagBoobs: One of her special features, and used as a distraction to kill a cop.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Subverted. The T-X is speeding in a stolen convertible and a police officer stops her. She spots a big Victoria Secret billboard with a model wearing a wonderbra and inflates her bust size before the cop walks up next to her. It works and the cop is momentarily distracted by her cleavage, but instead of using it to get away with speeding, she kills him for his gun.



* ImplacableWoman: Protected by malleable, crystalline, ceramic armor interlaced with nano-fibers of carbon and titanium, the T-X is practically unstoppable on the battlefield, capable of sustaining vast amounts of damage with little to no effect.
* TheKetchupTest: This is how the T-X can determine the identity of her victims if there is ever any doubt. (DNA scanners in her tongue. Who'd have thought it?)
* KillItWithFire: Has a flamethrower in her ArmCannon.
* LadyInRed: A red leather suit.
* LightningBruiser: She moves faster and is more nimble than even the T-1000, and her hard endoeskeleton make her as endurable as the T-850 if no more.

* MaleGaze: When the naked T-X is walking to a rich woman's car to steal her clothes, we have a very nice shot of the T-X's rear. It's nice to see some female booty in a Terminator movie for once.
* MsFanservice: Starts out naked and wears tight clothing throughout the film.



* NonMaliciousMonster: Like the T-1000 before her, the T-X displays similar signs of sadism.



* PlasmaCannon: The T-X's primary Arm Cannon weapon is said to be a plasma weapon. Being a Swiss Army Weapon, she has several alternates built in, including a flamethrower.
* PlayingWithFire: Has a built-in flamethrower. She uses this as her primary weapon after the PlasmaCannon was damaged.

* ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful: Subverted when the Terminatrix uses her rather extensive equipment to give herself an "[[BreastExpansion upgrade]]." She then utters a rather sultry, "Hello, officer," and it appears that she'll use her assets to avoid a ticket. Instead, she kills the police officer and takes his pistol.

This Terminator was found by John Connor inside Skynet's R&D facility, created by Skynet based on their extensive research on human skin and tissue. It serves as a prototype to an entire production line of T-800s being built in the same facility.

** In the [[DirectorsCut Special Edition]] of T2, it's revealed Skynet sets a Terminator's chip to read-only when sending them out on solo missions. [[ControlFreak It doesn't want them learning too much]]. As it turns out, this paranoia actually has some justification. The T-800 in the second film, freed from such restrictions, later comes to respect human life. [[MeaningfulEcho It learned at a geometric rate, becoming self-aware]], all in the space of a mere 24 hours.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Not a weakness per se, but Reese kept deliberately unloading his shotgun straight into the same spot ''for a reason''. He damaged its systems that regulate and regenerate its outer living tissue. Without those, its skin begins to rot and decay rapidly, thus compounding its ability to blend in among people.



** The T-1000 evidently becomes more ''unhinged'' towards the end of the film, even killing a truck driver, who was merely asking him if he was alright, who wasn't obstructing him taking the vehicle, [[PragmaticVillainy and would have saved 2 seconds more time shoving him aside]], rather than impaling.
