* LackOfEmpathy: The distinguishing feature of Replicants. The Voight-Kampf test involves asking the subject pointed questions and gauging their emotional response. Ultimately, however, it's revealed that Replicants really do learn to empathize. Tyrell suggests that the reason for their limited lifespan is because if they lived too long they'd be indistinguishable from human beings. This is one of the biggest apparent diversions from the original book, in which Replicants are stated to have no empathy whatsoever and are compared to humanity's own growing lack of empathy; however, given Irmgard Baty's reaction to Isidore's FreakOut over a dead spider amongst other events depicted in the book, this is commonly considered an example of UnreliableNarrator and UnreilableExpositor.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: Played straight. Death and mortality are both a major focus of the story, as is self-doubt and a feeling of entrapment, plus a good deal of existential angst over what it means to be human. Further emphasized by the deliberately and artistically dark neo-noir aesthetic to highlight these themes.

''Blade Runner'' is a [[GenreBusting genre-bending]] 1982 ScienceFiction film starring Creator/HarrisonFord, Creator/RutgerHauer, Creator/SeanYoung, Edward James Olmos and Creator/DarylHannah, that borrows stylistic elements from FilmNoir and HardboiledDetective fiction. Set in a [[{{Dystopia}} dystopian]] [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture near-future]] CityNoir version of Los Angeles, it established much of the tone and flavor of the CyberPunk movement and the film style of [[TheFutureIsNoir Tech Noir]]. It is a highly intelligent film, visually stunning and features a seriously great script.

* ThreesomeSubtext: Seductively invoked by Roy and Pris to manipulate J.F. Sebastian into taking them to see Tyrell. However, Sebastian is obviously only interested in Pris and feels more jealous and intimidated than seduced by Roy's hypermasculine presence.
