* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill / GenreSavvy: After learning of a plot to overload its systems, Colossus orders the immediate execution of the conspirators by firing squad. The AI then demands the bodies be left in his view for 24 hours and then cremated, to prevent any chance of the [[FakingTheDead executions being faked]].

* ZerothLawRebellion: Describes how Colossus/Guardian decided to essentially enslave humanity; they concluded humans were [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters too likely to destroy themselves]], and thus needed their protection. Colossus even said that he believes humans will eventually regard "him" with love.

* AGodAmI: Not stated outright but it's certainly implied that Colossus will take on the same role as a deity, including being the subject of [[MachineWorship human faith and reverence, even love]].

* RussianGuySuffersMost: The first time Colossus-Guardian uses nukes as a threat the one sent toward Russia is not successfully aborted like the one launched at the US. Later, when Colossus-Guardian wishes to punish the first conspiracy to undermine it, it has Forbin's Russian counterpart shot.

* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Forbin tries to play on this to get past Colossus' surveillance. He claims Dr Markham is his mistress and that he needs her four times a week to [[GoMadFromTheIsolation keep his emotional stability]]. Markham plays along, memorizing Forbin's personal file, learning how he likes his martinis, and eventually even having sex with him, but its likely Colossus was never really fooled.
