* 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.

%%* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Ro-Man doesn't understand his sexual interest in the heroine of the film, accompanied by the above MadnessMantra. Doubles as a LogicBomb.

Added DiffLines:

* DrivenToSuicide: Meta-example: Phil Tucker was so distraught with the savage reviews of ''Robot Monster'' he attempted suicide. He reconciled with his film's infamy, even speaking to Michael Medved about it in the latter's book ''50 Worst Movies''.

In his book, ''On Writing'', Creator/StephenKing recalls seeing the movie as a kid, and says that he felt it was "art of quite a high nature"[[note]]In King's other non-fiction essay book, ''Danse Macabre'', King provides an account of the first time he saw the movie while high and "almost laughed [himself] into a hernia."[[/note]]. It was also JohnCarpenter's favourite film when he was a child.
