** As well, on a rather unusual way it happens in Jacks world. While all the Action Movie Tropes are firmly set in place, reality still ensues as good as possible while bending around said tropes. Jacks cool Action Hero behaviour? Only a facade to distract others from his PTSS and lonlieness. His sexy ActionGirl daughter? Yes, she is an ActionGirl and enjoys it, but misses out basicly everything else in life, so it will later come back on her with revenge.

* StepfordSmiler: Jack is this clearly. Under all his cool attitude and action hero behaviour lies a broken man who is still suffering from PTSS, wich comes from his sons death.

** The officer that shouts "Hey Slater! It's your ex-wife on two!" when Slater and Danny show up at the police station is played by Mike Muscat, who had previously played Moshier in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', as the Cyberdyne Systems security guard who calls the police to say, "I think it's that guy from the mall. Him and the woman" when Miles Dyson shows up with the Terminator and Sarah Connor in tow. Muscat was also Edward Furlong (John Connor)'s acting coach.

* DifferentWorldDifferentMovies: Mixed with CelebrityParadox. Because Slater is played by Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger, the main character of ''TheTerminator'' franchise is played by Creator/SylvesterStallone. Apparently Robert Patrick is still the T-1000 in ''Judgment Day'' since he has a cameo.

* WoundedGazelleGambit: Benedict orders a thug to take Whitney aside and slap her around; she turns the tables on him easily, but continues screaming as if ''she's'' the one being attacked, letting her get the drop on Benedict. [[spoiler:Later on in the real world, Benedict smacks Danny into a nearby wall; Danny starts crying over a broken arm the treatment gave him, and Benedict turns his attention back to Slater, letting Danny then resume rushing him.]]

* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: {{Invoked|Trope}} when Danny growls at Benedict when he has Whitney in his clutches, "If you harm one hair on her---" Benedict interrupts, "Hold!", deliberately plucks a hair out of her head, then snaps it in front of Danny, daring him to finish his threat.

** Averted when Benedict gets to our world, on the other hand: he gets to see some of the real thing, particularly an ill-used prostitute who rather half-heartedly tries to solicit him.

* SnarkyInanimateObject: The magic ticket that transports Danny into the movie is said as having a mind of its own. When Danny attempts to get it to take him back to the real world, it reverts to being inactive. Only after it falls into the hands of the film's villain does it decide to stay on all the time. [[spoiler:Of course, it decides to turn off again at the exact moment Benedict needs it to escape being killed by Jack.]]
