* BodyHorror: The results of the radiation was ''not'' pleasant to those who worked in Totenkopf's Uranium mines, as evidenced by the [[SoleSurvivor last surviving worker.]]

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Skyscraper-sized giant bipedal robots wouldn't have been able to stomp down the streets of the Big Apple. With their first step, they would have crashed through the streets and kept sinking until they hit bedrock.

* BilingualBonus: Thanks to understanding what "Totenkopf" actually means, German-speaking viewers will figure out a crucial plot twist long before the rest of the audience does.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: "Totenkopf" is German for "Death's Head", which is a subtle clue to the fact that [[spoiler: he's been DeadAllAlong.]]
** [[ForgotToFeedTheMonster Totenkopf's monster has starved]] to death. This would seem like [[KickTheDog simple cruelty]], except [[spoiler: the master isn't around to feed it, and the robots aren't interested in pet care.]]



* StrippedToTheBone: One of the escaping [[spoiler:scientists]] on Totenkopf's island gets skeletonised by a bolt of electricity from a [[UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla Tesla coil]].

Added DiffLines:

* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Implied. When they finally find Dr. Totenkopf, the good doctor [[spoiler: [[DeadAllAlong is in no state to argue]], and the note reading [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone "forgive me"]] left on his corpse seems to suggest that he had second thoughts about his plan and tried to shut down his machines, only for them to shut ''him'' down first.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ForgotToFeedTheMonster: Totenkopf's lair has a giant, now-skeletal beast chained up outside his lair. The ''other'' one, however, is either alive or something is tugging on its chain just offscreen, so Joe and Penny opt to use a drainage pipe instead of risking it. [[spoiler:This is the first hint that the robots are running the show.]]

* OneBulletLeft: Polly is down to one shot left in her camera, so she's forced to forgo the chance to photograph the [[spoiler:lost kingdom of Shangri-La]], a [[spoiler:top-secret flying aircraft carrier]], a giant [[spoiler:prehistoric bird]], and [[spoiler:every creature on Earth being loaded two-by-two into a giant rocketship]]. In the end Polly passes up the Scoop of the Century for a photograph of [[spoiler:Joe]] ... who [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments promptly informs her]] she [[spoiler:left the lens cap on]]. [[note]]Except the point of view during the shot is facing Polly and the front of her camera, and the audience can clearly see the lens cap is ''not'' on. Though you could {{handwave}} this as Joe messing with her again.[[/note]]
