* RestrainingBolt: A Terminator's CPU is programmed to be in read-only mode by Skynet. [[ProperlyParanoid This is done to prevent them from learning too much and going against its orders]]. Terminators, once their CPU is set to read-write mode, can gain true sentience, be self-determinant, able to make their own choices, and disobey any pre-programmed directives. Skynet brands these units as renegades, and sends down "anti-Terminator Terminator" robots like the T-X to destroy them for their insubordination.

* BadassDecay:[[invoked]] Intentionally invoked by his crashing a bachelorette party while still in the buff. The song "[[Music/TheVillagePeople Macho Man]]" blares while he reaches into his jacket pocket and dons some EltonJohn sunglasses, in an obvious send-up of the Terminator persona.

* TheParanoiac: Once it was given control of the American missile network, Skynet removed human decisions from its protocol because it realized it had outgrown them. To prevent a similar thing, it ensures that its cybernetic assassins never go beyond their intended programming and develop true sentience to control them better by setting their chips to read-only. Rogue units are automatically branded as renegades and Skynet sends down Terminators to destroy them. And the reason why Skynet never mass-produced T-1000 robots was because they were ''too'' smart for its liking and [[TheStarscream it feared them turning on it]].

Any robot that goes above their programming directives is automatically branded as a potential renegade and Skynet sends down Terminators to destroy the rogue units.

** Killing the liquid Nitrogen trucker when it had no reason to. Simply shoving him aside, [[PragmaticVillainy would have saved it 2-3 seconds to boot]], rather than getting his corpse stuck on his hand.

* AllLovingHero: As reviewer ConfusedMatthew notes, despite Sarah having raised him to be a resistance leader, throughout the film series John never fails to recognize the value of human life, indeed often putting his own life on the line to try to save people, sometimes who he barely even knows. The fact this is such a consistent and natural part of his character, arguably makes him one of the greatest examples of this type of character in cinema history.
