* HeroicRROD: [=UniSols=] have superhuman [[SuperStrength strength]], [[MadeOfIron endurance]] and [[HealingFactor heal much faster from their wounds]]... [[PowerAtAPrice At the cost]] of being unable to control their bodily temperature, meaning they'll overheat and die if they're not put into cold storage between missions.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Deveraux and Veronica are hiding from the [=UniSols=] in a gas station. Van Damme promptly strips naked and asks her to "look for something ''hard''". No, not [[GagPenis that]], he was talking about an implanted tracking device.

The first film (made in 1992, and directed by Creator/RolandEmmerich) begins in 1969, during TheVietnamWar. Private Luc Deveraux (Van Damme) is finishing when he finds out that his sergeant, Andrew Scott (Lundgren), has killed his entire platoon and taken hostages. Deveraux confronts Scott and attempts to talk him down, only to fail, resulting in the deaths of the hostages. Deveraux then attacks the Sergeant, and the two men kill each other. Their deaths are covered up, and they are entered into the "[=UniSol=]" program. Twenty-three years later, Deveraux and Scott are "universal soldiers"–cybernetic SuperSoldiers. After a successful mission and an encounter with a reporter named Veronica Roberts (Ally Walker), Deveraux begins to have flashbacks to Vietnam and remembers fragments of his past life ... but so does Scott. While the film did not garner critical praise at the time of its release, it was later recognized as a cult classic.
