** Names like 'Joh', 'Hel' and maybe even Josaphat (an outdated Hebraic name, shorted version of Jehosaphat) are completey out of circulation.

* LostForever: The rest of the film until it turned up in Argentina, except for two scenes that were too badly damaged to restore.



** Georgy ([[YouAreNumberSix 11811]]), the worker Freder takes the place of at the dial machine. His story was expanded on in the footage that was later cut and, until recently, LostForever. He is supposed to have Freder's chauffeur drive him to Josaphat's apartment, but after finding a lot of money in the pockets of his borrowed clothes, he spends the night at Yoshiwara instead. The next morning, the Thin Man catches Georgy and sends him back to his station; later, when the workers start rioting, Georgy protects him and is stabbed to death.

'''Thin Man''': Tomorrow, thousands in this city will be asking the same question, in fury and desperation: "Joh Fredersen, where is ''my'' son?"

Added DiffLines:

* SpotTheImposter: Happens at one point in the novel, where both the real and false Maria call out to Freder. Though this is before the robot's transformation, so Freder only hears the Marias and doesn't actually see them.

Added DiffLines:

** Though it is said (how explicitly depends on the version) that Joh Fredersen is planning to replace the workers with robots. That is, sentient RidiculouslyHumanRobots capable of passing off as actual people. [[DoubleSubvertedTrope Basically artificial, more efficient manual labour.]]


Added DiffLines:

* XMeetsY: Literature/TheTimeMachine meets Literature/TheFutureEve meets Literature/TheBible, with bits and pieces of Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame and Literature/ThePrinceAndThePauper thrown in for good measure.

** The workers also do many stupid things in the third act. They completely fail to realise that thier leader is clearly NotHerself, (made worse by the fact that Freder - who, at this point, has met her a total number of twice - realises it almost immediatly,) they forget about their children and leave them behind in their city, (even though they were specifically instructed to bring their sons along,) and they destroy huge machines without thinking about the consequenses, (which even Grot calls them out on.)

This can, however, be somewhat justified by Robot-Maria being TheCorruptor, and intending to cause havoc through the workers ("Let's watch the world go to the Devil!").
