* ChristmasCake: Largely a non-issue, since no one lives past thirty. Marriage is unheard of, as well, [[spoiler:until Logan and Jessica make it outside of the city and see gravestones referring to husbands and wives. After learning from the Old Man what the words mean, they bestow the titles on each other.]]

* ComicBookAdaptation: Three times; first with MarvelComics, not long after the film, second was Malibu Comics back in [[TheNineties 1990]], and in 2010 with Bluewater Productions' ''Logan's Run: Last Day'', which takes aspects from the original Marvel run.

* KickTheDog: When Logan and Francis are going after a runner early in the film, they have several chances where they easily could have killed him right away, but they sadistically treat killing him like a game of hunting an animal, deliberately missing him so they can have fun at the Runners expense.

A 1976 science fiction film, directed by Michael Anderson and based on the [[Literature/LogansRun novel of the same name]] by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, depicting a future where everyone is young and healthy, no-one needs to work, and people look forward to the chance for "renewal" (presumably some sort of rebirth or reincarnation) in the "Carrousel" at the age of 30, a privilege given to those who have obeyed the rules faithfully. However, there is a darker side to this apparent utopia: no-one has ever survived Carrousel. Resource management and population control are simply maintained by mandating the death of everyone who reaches the age of 30.

** The only reason Logan and Jessica survive is, since he is the first Sandman to run, he is the first to come through with a gun.
