* 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.

* 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.

%%* 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''.
