* BothSidesHaveAPoint: Both Cocteau's and Friendly's version of San Angeles have their merits, but suffer from being too far on the edges of the OrderVersusChaos dichotomy. Once Cocteau is taken out of the picture, Spartan encourages the two sides to reconcile and find a middle ground.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: One of Phoenix's crimes in his brought-up file, in the midst of rape and random murder, is littering. Justified as this is a future where you are fined for semi swearing, so any infraction of the law you commit is [[FelonyMisdemeanor considered a serious crime]].

For the last time: this is inaccurate.

Phoenix Arrest Detail reads as follows:

Controlled Subst 01-15-84
Petty Theft 02-22-84
Assault 03-01-84
Manslaughter 03-28-84
DUI 04-11-84
Rape 05-30-84
Murder 1 06-07-84
Smuggling 08-19-84
Inciting to Riot 10-10-84
Counterfeiting 10-31-84
Extortion 12-20-84
Robbery 12-31-84

I have changed this before, and obviously dorks with flawed memories or sociopathic tendencies have gone to the trouble of re-editing this trope listing with lies.

TV Tropes is full of garbage like that; more care has to be taken to ensure things that are put up on here are not false.

Period.

* BrickJoke: Set up during the initial confrontation in 1996:
-->'''Spartan:''' Where are they, Phoenix?!\\
'''Phoenix:''' Now where did I put them? I swear, I'd lose my head if it wasn't attached.\\
'''Spartan:''' I'll keep that in mind.
** A subtle one: the prisoner who's up for parole before Phoenix returns as the pianist at Taco Bell.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The cryoprison uses a system wherein electrical impulses keep muscles from atrophy while prisoners are frozen. However, atrophy is caused by the body intentionally reducing the mass of unused muscles in order to improve efficiency. While cryogenically frozen, atrophy would not occur, so there would be no need to stimulate the muscles.
** This is doubly egregious when you also consider that electro-stimulation would only prevent atrophy if the body's standard metabolic processes were actively maintaining the stimulated muscles. Since the cons are cryogenically frozen, this wouldn't happen either.
