* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: ''Westworld'' gets a pretty light 7, due to some of the blood-gushing squibs on [[spoiler:the Gunslinger (Yul Brynner)]].

[[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture In the near future]], Delos is an ''expensive'' [[note]]$1000 a day in 1973, equivalent to about $5525 a day in 2015[[/note]] adult amusement resort offering simulations of TheWildWest, [[TheMiddleAges Medieval Britain]], and {{Ancient Rome}}. Each park has a population of humanoid [[DeceptivelyHumanRobots robots]], with whom visitors can interact however they wish. As a part of the Delos experience, one can fight with them, seduce them, and even kill them. After all, the robots are programmed not to feel pain or fight back, and the weapons provided only work on machines. [[BlatantLies They're harmless.]]

* {{Narm}}: InUniverse. The more silly "performances" of the tourists at Delos certainly qualify. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] considering they aren't trained actors and are basically hamming it up for fun to emulate what they've seen on tv and film. The robots within are also deliberately over-the-top personas and cliches as the setting dictates. For some viewers all of this can become a case of NarmCharm as it adds a certain authenticity to what is essentially an adult theme park. Peter lampshades this to an extent when he talks about feeling silly but he eventually starts to enjoy it. (Until things go wrong, that is...)

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: Averted, the guns the guests (and presumably the robots) use have a sensor so you can't kill anything "warm," only something cold, like a machine. One of the guests actually tries playing quick draw with his gun, and shoots out the mirror. The book of the movie has a robot removing the sensor from its gun, something the movie missed explaining, after it takes the trouble to explain the guns have heat sensors.
