* XMeetsY: If the [[Series/DoctorWho Cybermen]] stole from the ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers'' playbook, it would be this movie.
** Actually, [[TheyLookLikeUsNow infiltration as humans]] is ''occasionally'' already used in-universe as the shtick of the Nestene Consciousness and its Autons rather than the Cybermen.

* LotusEaterMachine: The Mermaid uses blanks modelled after the former love interests of the group to tempt them into staying at Newton Haven so that they can be replaced by blanks or at least harvest enough DNA to make a copy of them. The group was fooled because they were too drunk to realise the manipulation. [[spoiler: Sam and Steven were only able to realise the trap because Sam's former crush had actually died years earlier in a motorcycle accident and Steven encountered Basil who explained the blank's existence to him.]]

Oliver wasn't effected because he was already replaced by a blank and seems to be the orchestrator of the trap due to existing knowledge of the groups history and his subtle smiles and nods to the other blanks.]]

* NewMediaAreEvil: perhaps the only fictional work to date where [[spoiler:digital technology is ''the villain itself'']]. Notably, Gary King defeats it by being resolutely stuck in the past.
