* PurposefullyOverpowered: The T-800 in ''Salvation'', being able to survive attacks that have defeated earlier movies' T-800s. It is implied by John Connor that the T-800 should NOT exist until at least 2024 or so when he discovers them. It seems that [=SkyNet=] not only knows about the other timeline and as such advanced faster, but it also knew the flaws of the original timeline's models and rooted them out.

As I understand it, they did get her to record the tapes.
** John finds the tapes his mother made at the end of ''T1'', as well as the photo taken at the gas station and carried by Kyle Reese in his flashback. Unfortunately, they are nothing like the tapes made by Sarah at the end of ''T1'' (Sarah recorded reel-to-reel tapes, not cassettes, said noticeably different dialogue and it is clearly not Linda Hamilton's voice being played), while her photo appears to be much smaller than the one at the end and in Kyle Reese's flashback. It also contradicts John having the photo and knowing Kyle Reese is his father in ''T2''.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Marcus is held and gets rammed by a mech at some point, and is even thrown across the water after an explosion, but he's then seen later none worse for wear. [[spoiler: It's a hint he's a Terminator.]]

** The sky and sunlight has a washed-out silvery look to it, because there's not much of an ozone left after the bombs went off, to filter out dangerous levels of UV. It's why a lot of people also are seen wearing sunglasses or goggles.

** Red moss and red leaves on trees can be seen in many places, along with dark green shubbery. Red moss and red leaves are common in areas when radiation and radioactive debris has saturated the landscape. ** John's combat style is very much influenced by Special Forces doctrine, chiefly Rangers and Navy [=SEALs=]. In fact, Christian Bale was going to attend Ranger School in preperation for his role, but the budget and schedule did not allow for it. Instead, military consultants were hired, and Christian Bale underwent extensive training to give John Connor's paramilitary background weight and meat. The military consultants also went to great lengths to help the director portray how a paramilitary/guerrilla army would conduct itself and operate in a post-nuclear world.

** The final wounds John Connor receives in ''T4'', a set of [[FacialMarkings facial lacerations]] from the T-800's super-heated endoskeleton "claws", mirrors [[ScarsAreForever the scars]] seen on the face of the Future!John Connor in beginning of ''T2''. The scene might also be a recalling of the last-ditch face-grab the original T-800 performed before being terminated in T1.

** When we first see John Connor, He is wearing Jungle Tiger Stripe Pants. In T2, those are the same pattern and style of pants that John wore as a child. Later on, during his infilitration of Skynet, John is wearing an M65 Jacket. When the Terminator first showed up in 1984, the thug that He stole clothing from, was wearing a modified M65 jacket.

The film takes place during the war with the machines and shares no ties to ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''; while it references both ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' and ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'', it keeps those references vague. ([[Film/TheTerminator The first film]] holds more importance to ''Salvation's'' central themes than the other two films.) ''Salvation'' forgoes the idea of time travel in favor of a [[GenreShift sci-fi war]] slant on the franchise.
