* HeyItsThatGuy: Creator/CharlesDance plays the MadScientist turned SpacePirate who created the {{Killer Robot}}s. It's definitely hilarious to see [[Series/GameOfThrones Tywin Lannister]] with half his face replaced with cybernetics - and eventually reduced to HalfTheManHeUsedToBe.

* CatchAndReturn: One of the {{Killer Robot}}s catches a grenade thrown at it, then starts spinning wildly and tosses the grenade right back.

* CatchAndReturn: One of the {{Killer Robot}}s catches a grenade thrown at it, then starts spinning wildly and tosses the grenade right back. Partly justified, since it's a machine.

* MechaMooks: Scrags has Nabel build him an army of {{Killer Robot}}s as a backup plan, in case his negotiations to buy out the Earth government break down. According to Nabel, the robots are activated in waves: 1, 2, 4, 8... Considering what even one of those things can do, it's pretty clear that an army of these things is unstoppable.

* SpaceTruckers: Since it's the damn ''title,'' you can sure bet that it's invoking this trope.

* GreasySpoon: That floats in space with a spinning donut shape to keep gravity going, a la ''[[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001]]''(along with the white colour scheme). Keeping with the trend of mixing truckers and trucker culture with sci-fi.

* MadeOfIron: Nabel manages to be the only person to survive a direct upclose attack by a cyborg, and while fatally wounded in a later second attack, still lived long enough to tell John about them.
* MadScientist: Nabel



* OneManArmy: In the opening, a single cyborg in successive order takes down an armoured vehicle, an outpost, a gunship and at such rapid rate that the scientists believe it merely to be communication problems only for it to stand outside the room and massacre it's way through a heavily-armed security force without so much being slowed.



* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness:
--> '''Scrags:''' If I could, I'd promote you on the spot. But I'm afraid all this has to be deniable. Which means ''you'' have to be deniable.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: Nabel. He tells Scrags how the cyborg who just murdered hundreds of employees is only loyal to Scrags who plans to use and a whole army of them to invade Earth, and doesn't expect to be made ''deniable''. Subverted in that Nabel survived the cyborg's attack, using cybernetics to heal himself and becomes a pirate.

Either way your milage may vary as to whether or not it is SoBadItsGood or So Bad It's Horrible ([[TakeAThirdOption or if it's actually okay]]).

* KillerRobot: The "[[AMechByAnyOtherName cyborgs]]" with {{Energy Weapon}}s for [[UnusualWeaponMounting heads]] BladesBelowTheShoulder (in sword, claw, and scissor configurations) and AbnormalLimbRotationRange allowing them to rotate their neck and compress into a disturbing travel form.

* MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness: surprisingly hard. No artificial gravity except for magnetic boots and rotating space stations; space suits are in common use; there is no FasterThanLightTravel at all (the entire movie takes place within Earth's solar system), and even in the late 22nd century, spacecraft are still launched into space using booster rockets. Everyone freaks out when someone pulls a gun inside a pressurized space vehicle; on the other hand, what Hollywood Science there is is mostly played for laughs and one-off gags.

* SpacePirate: The protagonists go "off-road" in order to avoid being stopped by the authorities but end up getting captured by a giant pirate ship, which literally swallows them. These pirates were complete with cybernetic false limbs and a skull-and-crossbones flag.
