* AmbiguousEnding: The day is saved, Mars is liberated from Cohaagen and terraformed to now be a breathable planet. But we're left unsure if the whole adventure was truly real or if it was all part of Quaid's recall program. Needless to say, the film leaves it up to the audience to decide.

In the commentary, Verhoeven thinks the movies was [[AllJustADream all in Quaid's head]] while Schwarzenegger thinks that it all happened for real.

* PunchClockVillain: Lori claims that she was just hired to do a job when Doug finds out that she's a spy. However, later in the film this is deconstructed and eventually subverted when she brutally beats Doug for simply following him to Mars which she despises, tries to slash Melina's throat in a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown and then tries to distract with her sweet housewife facade once more to gun him down before Quaid took the upper hand. In short, she is as much of a PsychoForHire as her real husband Richter.
