** Even more flagrant in ''Futureworld'', in which the simulated "space mission" looks cheesy ''even by 1976 standards'', despite being staged by androids more human-like than anything we have in the 2010s.

* MalevolentArchitecture / NoOshaCompliance: The main control room has no emergency exit, and shutting down the power means they can't open the doors at all. The room is also airtight for some reason, with air being pumped in through vents. This essentially turns the function of shutting down power from that room into a suicide button.

** The rest of the park isn't any better. There don't seem to be any fire alarms, emergency escapes, evacuation routes, emergency evacuation vehicles, or speakers to relay information.

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Speaking of Dick Van Patten, what the hell was going on with his voice? Was that him trying to sound even nerdier than he sounded naturally? Or did they overdub his lines?

* AndYouThoughtItWasAGame: The first two victims in Westworld assume the androids will let them win their duels as they have been programmed to do.


Added DiffLines:

* BigDoor: In ''Futureworld''. In a scene with a rocket launch there was a giant circular door, as seen here and here. That door has appeared in other movies as well.
* BlindedByTheLight: The implacable robot gunslinger stalking Peter Martin has infra-red vision, so Peter hides behind the HollywoodTorches in Medieval World.
* BorrowedBiometricBypass: A robotic version appeared in ''Futureworld''. A door has a device that scans the retinas of anyone trying to get in. To pass, you must have a pattern that only robots possess. The heroes deactivate a robot and rip off its face, then use the face (and its eyes) to fool the device.


Added DiffLines:

* BrokenRecord / ElectronicSpeechImpediment: This was the cover copy for the published script for the movie: "Nothing can possibly go wrong ... go wrong ... go wrong ... go wrong ... "


Added DiffLines:

* CattlePunk: An inversion. Late 20th century robotic and ArtificialIntelligence technology were used to re-create the Wild West for entertainment.
* CueTheSun: In the movie the technicians watch for sunrise and cue all the robots to start up at the instant where the sun rises above the horizon. A western town is frozen in mid movement, then everything starts up when the sun rises.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Gunslinger's first criticism of Peter is that he is sloppy with his drink. Somewhat subverted as he is programmed to goad people into fights.

A sequel, 1976's ''Futureworld'', removes the original's {{giallo}} influences, being more akin to a sociopolitical thriller. The Delos resort has been revamped and re-opened, and a pair of {{Intrepid Reporter}}s (Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner) are invited to preview the park's attractions (including a new theme park, [[TitleDrop Futureworld]]), but soon learn that Delos' backers have much more sinister plans for their improved robots... Notably, Yul Brynner's "Gunslinger" shows up in ''Futureworld'', but only in a DreamSequence and having absolutely no logical connection with the original character. Both movies were followed up by a ''very'' short-lived television series, ''Beyond Westworld''. In the series, set after the first movie, with John Moore (the head of security for Delos) and agent Pamela Williams sent after mad scientist Roger Quaid, who aims to uses the androids to take over the world.
