* {{Robosexual}}: In the comic.

* {{Robosexual}}: In the comic.comics, Barbarella believes that robots can be just as good, if not better, lovers compared to humans. She has sex with one robot called Diktor ([[CompositeCharacter elements of him can be found in Dildano's character]]) in the Sogo chapters. There's another chapter where she drives a {{Fembot}} to orgasm just by fiddling with her insides.

Added DiffLines:

* FutureFoodIsArtificial: After waking up from artificial sleep, Barbarella drinks a purple liquid as nourishment. It tastes foul if her reaction is anything to go by.

Added DiffLines:

* OminousMusicBoxTune: When the biting dolls are edging in on Barbarella, the BGM sounds like a music box version of the movie's eponymous song for a few beats.

* NoSexAllowed: In Barbarella's world, physical sex has been replaced with a ritual involving so-called 'Exaltation Transference Pills'. When she tries the old style though, she's quite pleased.

to:

* NoSexAllowed: Downplayed. In Barbarella's world, time, physical sex has mostly been replaced with a ritual involving so-called 'Exaltation Transference Pills'.Pills'. Sex isn't banned so much as highly discouraged by scientific findings, as she mentions in an aside that the very poor who can't afford the pills still practice physical sex. When she tries the old style though, she's quite pleased.

* BettyAndVeronica: From Barbarella's point of view, the angel Pygar and the rebel Dildano are safe, harmless and have values similar to her own (as in, Pygar is the perfect pacifist and Dildano wants to reform Sogo to be like Earth), while Mark Hand the catchman and the Black Queen are more rough and dangerous, expose Barbarella to new things and don't subscribe to or understand Earthling views.

to:

* BettyAndVeronica: From Barbarella's point of view, four suitors; the angel Pygar and the rebel Dildano are safe, harmless and have values similar to her own (as in, Pygar is the perfect pacifist and Dildano wants to reform Sogo to be like Earth), while Mark Hand the catchman and the Black Queen are more rough and dangerous, expose Barbarella to new things and don't subscribe to or understand Earthling views.

* InformedAbility: Barbarella. She's hyped as one of Earth's greatest space explorers by the President of Earth but turns out to be a bit of TheDitz & TheIngenue & FauxActionGirl rolled into one... played by ''Jane Fonda'' of all people!

Added DiffLines:

* ExtremelyShortTimespan: Although getting to Tau Ceti takes about one week, the meat of the movie is Barbarella's adventures in Lythion, and those take place in two days tops.

* BoldlyComing: Barbarella, the pretty blonde envoy of an Earth that left behind such outdated concepts like violence or physical sex, gets used to both rather quickly after being introduced to them on a more... uhm, anarchic planet. She doesn't decline to try other things too. In one memorable scene, Durand-Durand tries to kill her with his orgasm machine, but she overloads it.

* DownTheRabbitHole: ''Barbarella'' feels a lot like a sexy sci-fi version of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' considering it involves a naive young woman going on an adventure in a nonsensical (to her) realm full of strange sights and people. One can also draw parallels between the Tweedle twins and Stomoxys and Glossina, and more obviously the Queen of Hearts and the Black Queen.
