* {{Leitmotif}}: Before he's reprogrammed by Sarah, the T-800 is accompanied by a drumbeat of hammered metal. The T-1000 has a creepier, ''{{Film/Jaws}}''-like theme.

* EyeLightsOut: We have a close up the the T-800's eyes going out when he suffers his DisneyDeath, and a first-person POV of it when he dies for real.

* SelfMutilationDemonstration: John orders the T-800 to [[RoboticReveal show Miles Dyson what it really is]]. The T-800 peels off the skin and muscle of his arm, only to look at the exposed endoskeleton dispassionately. (The Dysons, not so much. Thankfully, John had the good sense to [[HarmfulToMinors take the Dysons' son out of the room before the T-800 began cutting]].)

Thankfully, John had the good sense to [[HarmfulToMinors take the Dysons' son out of the room before the T-800 began cutting]].)) Miles Dyson is understandably shocked/horrified by it, so it takes him a few seconds to fully understand what he's seeing...and then he's horrified for a different reason. His wife meanwhile (probably) didn't recognize the significance of the arm, and was presumably wondering what the hell was going on.

** To be fair, what's left is simply a angled metallic humanoid arm, the real key to Skynet, the CPUs, are destroyed.

*** A subtle one from the foley department: we first see the T-1000 running up to his imminent victim, completely stark naked, nothing in his hand. We then hear a ''distinctly metallic stabbing sound'' as his victim doubles over in pain ...

** John has a palmtop computer[[note]]Specifically, an {{Atari}} [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atari_Portfolio Portfolio]][[/note]] with a code-cracking program he apparently uses to brute-force [=PINs=] on stolen credit cards. He uses the same program later in the film to crack door codes at Cyberdyne; in one of the comics, he was shown using the same program again to ''destroy [=SkyNet=]'' with a final prompt of "easy money".

** She also seems more desperate because, since John was born in 1985 (according to the police record) and he's ten-years-old, to her Judgement Day 1997 is only two years away so she knows she is running out of time and locked in a mental asylum.

* ShootTheMoney: The film, judging from its opening, intended to keep the presence of the T-1000 ambiguous for a while, letting the audience think that Robert Patrick's character was another human sent back to stop another T-800. Whoever made the trailers decided that liquid metal CGI effects were too cool not to show off.

** The name of John's foster parents is Voight. Considering they're only introduced into the script as an excuse to provide a "Who was phone?" moment where the T-800 figures out that the T-1000 has killed the Voights, it is clear that their name is a shout out to the Voight-Kampff test in ''Film/BladeRunner''--a test aimed at detecting replicants amidst humans.
