* ApocalypseHow: Starts off as a Class 3a, thanks to the the effect of the Calcinator Death Ray. [[spoiler:Later upgraded to a Class X, as the Great One gets pissed off at Ro-Man's failure to kill the humans and unleashes a "Q-Ray" which completely destroys the planet]].

* MarsNeedsWomen: Actually justified in a weird way - Ro-Man has no idea why he wants to get into Alice's pants, and while he's struggling with it Great Guidance orders him to kill her, so he goes into the MadnessMantra.

-->'''Ro-Man:''' "Now I will kill you."

* KickTheDog: Ro-Man shows the family the destruction of humanity on their video screen. Why? Oh, ''just to make them feel shitty''.

* KickTheDog: Ro-Man shows the family the destruction of humanity on their video screen. Why? Oh, ''just to make them feel shitty''. JustifiedTrope, when you consider it's trying to drive the humans to despair and perhaps [[DrivenToSuicide suicide]].

* FailOSuckyName: "Wyatt Ordung" was the film's screenwriter. ([[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 The bots]] take his name as a question, and choose "Wyatt".)

* ActingForTwo: George Barrows as both Ro-Man and Great Guidance. It makes for some pretty cheesy fun, given that both characters have several conversations together but look almost exactly alike and have ''the exact same voice''.



* [[FountainOfExpies Iconic Characters]]: Ro-Man: ''the'' classic BMovie monster of all time.



* NamesTheSame: Ro-Man [=XJ2=] should not be confused with XJ-2, one of [[MyLifeAsATeenageRobot Jenny's]] older sisters.
