* MeatSackRobot: The eponymous RoboCop was designed to essentially be a robot using a critically injured cop's central nervous system as a WetwareCPU. They left enough of a digestive system to sustain the brain and spine, and grafted his face on for looks, but he's otherwise a robot meant to be subservient to programming. Him partially regaining his previous identity was an unexpected accident.

* SoftGlass: The movie has plenty of things being thrown through glass, including [=RoboCop=] himself. RealityEnsues when Boddicker gets his face cut up pretty badly from it. He has those scars for the rest of the film.

He has those scars for the rest of the film. Of course, he should be sliced to ''ribbons'', not sporting what looks like a lot of shaving cuts, but it's more than you usually see with this trope.

* PoliceBrutality: Robo uses some heavy-handed tactics to fight crime, including throwing a terrorist out a window and castrating a rapist. The latter, at least, is justifiable since the perpetrator was holding their victim at knife-point and RoboCop was far out of melee range.

[[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture In the near-future]], [[CrapsackWorld Detroit]] is overrun by crime, primarily because of the work of unofficial crime boss Clarence Boddicker (Creator/KurtwoodSmith). To address this matter, [[MegaCorp Omni Consumer Products]] (OCP for short) has decided that they will tear down crime-plagued Old Detroit and rebuild it as their own "Delta City". Beforehand, they must eradicate crime in the city. To that end, executive Bob Morton (Creator/MiguelFerrer) proposes a new conceptual cyborg to the CEO known as "the Old Man", which he calls [=RoboCop=], which is constructed from a police officer's body and given superior firepower and combat abilities. This is at the cost of OCP President Dick Jones (Creator/RonnyCox), who has proposed a military robot called "ED-209" for urban pacification, but which is prone to malfunction.

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: In the Miranda rights scene, [=RoboCop=] throws Boddicker through numerous plate-glass windows, intent on hurting him or killing him. Boddicker confesses Jones' involvement in the plot, but [=RoboCop=] keeps going. Boddicker finally gets Robo to stop by saying "You're a cop!", reminding Robo that his first duty is to the law. [=RoboCop=] stops his RoaringRampageOfRevenge and arrests Boddicker instead.[[note]]Which he was going to do, anyway.[[/note]]
-->'''[=RoboCop=]''': Yes, I am a cop.

* ArtisticLicenseChemistry: Emil gets exposed to "toxic waste", from a disused steelworks. No substance in reality reacts with a human body, or organic matter period, in that gradulatiously violent fashion. There's Hydrofluoric acid, which is ''nasty'', but the damage and pain it causes is not evident until the day after, and you'd die long before of organ failure anyway.
