* GoThroughMe: [=McDaggett=] tries to raid the church filled with civilians. After Robocop tells them to back off, Lewis pulls out her gun and declares "If you want to get in there, you gonna have to shoot through us." [[spoiler:[=McDaggett=] "gladly" and promptly blasts her with a burst of machinegun fire, followed by firing a grenade in Robocop's torso who was standing beside her]].
* HeroOfAnotherStory: It's implied before he faced Robocop, Otomo was to Tokyo exactly like Robocop is to Detroit.

* HonorBeforeReason: Oddly enough, Otomo [[spoiler: the android]] seems to adhere to this. He could have killed Robocop effortlessly several times, but the first time waits until Robo turns to face him, and the second time waits until he's on his feet again.
* IdiotBall: Anne Lewis has the ball when she chooses to go out with Robocop after finishing her shift, but turns down another officer's offer of body armor.

* LoopholeAbuse: [=RoboCop's=] Directive 4 prevents him from firing on Rehab officers. It doesn't stop him from shooting their vehicles, though. It doesn't amount to much, since [=McDaggett=] knows [=RoboCop=] can't shoot his men and there simply aren't enough vehicles to blow up.

* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: After the Rehab assault on the resistance safehouse, [=McDaggett=] orders a defeated-looking Coontz to be executed. ostensibly because he doesn't want to pay the latter for being a turncoat.

* ScrewThisImOutOfHere: The lady newscaster finally quits when the absurd lies she's told to tell on the air get ''too'' absurd, the breaking point being accusations that [=Robocop=] slaughtered a convent full of nuns.

* ToBeLawfulOrGood: When Robocop and Lewis are surrounded by Rehab troopers, Murphy weighs up his four prime directives, which are two for two in favour of both the Rehabs and the innocent civilians hiding in the church. He decides to side with the civilians, but his fourth directive prevents him from shooting [=McDaggett=], so he's forced to shoot one of the Rehab troopers' vehicles to cover the civilians' escape.

** Subverted in that Robocop's face is only a superficial layer of skin as it's all metal beneath.

** When Reed answers a phone call, he tells the person on the other end that the cops are not on strike, which they were threatening to do in the first film and went ahead with in the second..

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: By the climax, [=McDaggett=] has clearly forgotten all about [[spoiler:killing Anne Lewis]]. When [=Robocop=] tells him he's under arrest, he nonchalantly asks "What's the charge?" (Indeed, what he's currently doing isn't illegal, because he has the authority to do it. Then the hero tells him its for murder, the event he, having a computer for a brain, is incapable of forgetting.)
