* YourMindMakesItReal: Not a straight example; the system is designed to train cops in combat situations, similar to the US Army's RealLife Force XXI program. The problem is that different people worked on different parts of the system and didn't understand how Lindenmeyer's maniacal AI could abuse it. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything The Dev Team Thought of ALMOST Everything]]; they programmed in non-lethal simulations of being shot, bludgeoned and even ''bitten'', but when SID decided to try electrocuting someone, the poor chump's brain overloaded.

Added DiffLines:

** Near the end of the film SID tries a different method on Parker after he manages to gain control of the simulation: He subjects Parker to a rapid-fire series of intense surreal sensory input in an attempt to overload his brain and potentially induce heart failure.

* {{Emoticon}}: Barnes locates SID in the training program through the clue left on the side of one building. "Semicolon, parenthesis: smiley face." This is an instance of UnintentionalPeriodPiece in that Barnes has to explain the concept of emoticons to another person.
