* {{Homage}}: Creatures similar to the id monster have appeared in series as diverse as ''Series/TheOuterLimits1963'' ("The Man with the Power") and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' ("[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E2AllBottledUp All Bottled Up]]").



* StealthSequel: Robby the Robot was so popular he appeared as the co-star in a B&W children's movie called TheInvisibleBoy. In an application of this trope, the movie was implied to be in the same universe as Forbidden Planet, with Robby being pulled back in time to the [[TheFifties present day]] by a scientist's experiment. Some releases of ''Forbidden Planet'' include ''The Invisible Boy'' as DVDBonusContent.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: Coupled with {{Foreshadowing}}: During the id monster's big attack on the ''[=C57D=]'', the film inserts a shot of Morbius sleeping (and having a nightmare) in the Krell lab; behind him, the energy gauges of the Krell machinery are lighting up one after the other, and darken once he awakens. The same thing happens later during the climax in that same lab, when Adams is trying to convince Morbius of the monster's true source.

* GoneHorriblyRight: The last invention of the Krell was evidently meant to be an improvement over their MatterReplicator technology that would allow them to give form and substance to anything they could imagine without having to feed a sample of it into a machine for analysis first. As the Doctor concludes, their new device was a smashing success at this, but it also DugTooDeep in a psychological sense: the Krell forgot about the irrationally evil and violent desires lurking deep in the subconscious imagination of every rational being, to which their new device ''also'' gave form and substance. These "monsters of the id" then destroyed their civilization and exterminated them all, and came close to doing the same to all the humans on the planet after Dr. Morbius took to fiddling with it.

Alternatively,the three billion electron volts could be the energy in each particle, which is absurd in the other direction, being roughly three thousand times the energy of a gamma photon. The decay of a single gamma photon into visible light can be very easily observed with the unaided eye.

* LogicBomb: Robby's "built-in safety factor": he is compelled to obey Morbius, but is also compelled not to harm a rational being, and he shorts out if those two mandates come into conflict. Backfires when Morbius, in a panic, orders Robby to kill the Monster, and trips the failsafe instead, because Robby realizes that the Monster is being generated by the Krell machine from Morbius' own subconscious. The only way for Robby to kill the monster is to kill Morbius, which the failsafe will not allow, causing Robby to freeze up and be unable to take any action.

* AbsentAliens: The Krell have been extinct for millennia by the time the story takes place. No physical evidence of their appearance seems to have survived, the only hint being the triangular doorways in Morbius' complex.
