* ShoutOut: Atom's name is a twofer. It belongs to both the robot hero ''Manga/AstroBoy'' and the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] hero ComicBook/TheAtom, a diminutive scrapper who was taught to box, and proceeded to outfight thugs much bigger than him.

* {{Fanservice}}: The bikini girls at The Zoo, and the girl in the robot costume holding up the round cards during the league matches. Farra Lemkova has a kind of [[SensualSlavs Sensual Slav]][=/=]Creator/KimKardashian thing going on.

* {{Zeerust}}: Though it hasn't exactly reached this yet, the film's very detailed timeline will most likely look rather silly as time goes on (for example, it states that robot boxing will become mainstream in 2014).
** This may end up being {{averted|Trope}} after all, as of 2013 and the Premiere of SyFy's [[http://www.syfy.com/robotcombatleague Robot Combat League]]

** Technically averted with Dr. Pepper. WordOfGod admits that Dr. Pepper gave them permission to use their soda on-camera, but the film received no revenue from the appearance. They simply used Dr. Pepper because that was the soda they had on-hand, and needed something with caffeine content to justify Max's hyperactive-ness in one scene.

* ActingYourIntellectualAge: 9-year old he may be, but Max is almost scary adult-like in how he mechanically enhances Atom and plots circles around half the adults in the film.

* AsianAndNerdy: Tak Moshido, Zeus' creator. BackStory on the film's website reveals that he was the original creator of Noisy Boy, Charlie's second robot, and was also one of the revolutionary inventors of robot boxing. Going even further, the film's BackStory is that robot boxing started as a hobby among robot enthusiasts in Japan, meaning that the entire sport was the result of this trope.
