* AdaptationAmalgamation:
** Played striaght with the original movie. Screenwriter Edward Neumeier had written a screenplay about a robot that becomes a cop. When he met fellow writer Michael Miner it turned out that Miner was working on a screenplay about a human cop becoming a robot. They decided to combine the ideas and ''Film/RoboCop1987'' was the result.
** Inverted with [[ComicBook/FrankMillersRoboCop Frank Miller's original script for]] ''Film/RoboCop2'', as while the finished version of ''2'' kept the evil pop psychiatrist, the [=RoboCop=] 2 project to replace Murphy, and Murphy being rebuilt with additional directives to hamper him, it cut out a number of ideas that were recycled for ''Film/RoboCop3'' (the Rehabs, OCP tearing down Detroit, [[AnAsskickingChristmas the Christmas time setting]], and [[spoiler:Murphy being framed for the murder of one of his fellow cops]]).

* AnimatedAdaptation: What else does one do with R-rated movies? Though in ''Alpha Commando'''s case, it was made after the PG-13 ''3'' and ''The Series''.

The first sequel, ''Film/RoboCop2'' (1990), was even [[DarkerAndEdgier more violent and edgy]] than the first, going so far as to include a child as one of the primary villains. Relying too heavily on raw violence and shock value while having less of the satirical humor that defined its predecessor, the sequel was not as popular as the original film. Creator/FrankMiller wrote the original screenplay; although the script was heavily altered to fit a movie format, his influence in the themes of the film can be identified, including scenes in which a focus group attempts to make [=RoboCop=] more family-friendly (rendering him unable to do his job). Miller later turned his original vision of the film into a comic book series (''Frank Miller's [=RoboCop=]'').

* AnAsskickingChristmas: "Oh Tannenbaum, Whoa Tannenbaum" sees Murphy and Miner deal with robotic elf toys causing havoc at a store while Neumeier's psycho ex-girlfriend (and the dolls' creator) comes calling to kidnap him.



* DoAnythingRobot: Cyborg in this case. [=RoboCop=] is a lot like WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget in this iterration as Murphy has several more weapons than just [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms a laser version of his classic gun]] and including some that makes no sense for Murphy to have whatsoever (one episode's climax was resolved with a self-heating ice cream scoop!).

!!Tropes that apply to both series:
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: Both cartoons traded in conventional firearms for laser weapons, including Murphy himself in both series packing a laser version of the Auto-9, with additional laser weapons in ''Alpha Commando''.
