* JerkassHasAPoint: In one episode Robocop breaks the record on a police obstacle course by just wading through all the dangers, prompting a Lt. Hitchcock to scoff that all cops should have armor plating. This is one of a couple times Lewis gets on his back for just being jealous Robocop's more of a man than he is. While Hitchcock is without a doubt an ass, he does still make a valid point that breaking records and catching bad guys would come easily to someone who's NighInvulnerable with SuperStrength and RoboCam-vision on the side.

That's misuse. The simple answer is "they do." It's odd, but not impossible.
* PlotHole: Why do the OCP executives keep a box with a loaded handgun in their boardroom? It would be understandable if it was just there for the ED209 demonstration, but it's still there at the end of the movie, which takes place a long time later.

* UltimateJobSecurity: Dr. McNamara still keeps his job with OCP despite the debacle of ED-260's test run in the first episode, as well as the earlier debacle with its predecessor model ED-209 in the first film. Possibly averted by the events of ''RoboCop2'', as McNamara was not involved in the creation of the titular cyborg.

* HometownHero: Both in-universe and in real life. The movies depict [=RoboCop=] as something of a hero to children in the movies, especially from 3 up, and in the live action and animated TV shows. In real life, a statue of [=RoboCop=] was proposed for Detroit, and 25,000 offered up to make it happen. Detroit has no problem with claiming Murphy as one of their own in the same way that Philadelphia has embraced Rocky Balboa or New York has claimed Spider-Man, since there are so few fictional characters from Detroit. As such, Detroit natives are likely to have a certain justifiable pride at knowing one of the most well loved cyborgs of all time is their representative into the world of pop culture, even if his real life creator may not have been from there.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The 4th draft of the script set the events of the film in 2043 or 2044, not TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, and featured a much more technologically advanced UsedFuture.

* [[DoAnythingRobot Do-Anything Cyborg]][=/=]* HyperspaceArsenal: [=RoboCop=] is a lot like WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget in this iterration as Murphy has several more weapons that 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!).

** In the first film, a TV news program mentions that a misfire of the [[KillSat "Strategic Defense Peace Platform"]] ignited a massive fire in the Santa Barbara area that killed over a hundred people, including two former US Presidents. Guess where [[RonaldReagan the main presidential proponent of SDI]] owned a ranch in real life?

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Robocop's Titanium/Kevlar armor would, in reality, be very poor protection. Titanium is prized for its weight-to-strength ratio, but is still significantly softer and less durable than steel. Furthermore, Kevlar is a fabric that works by creating a strong, tear-resistant mesh that "catches" bullets and slows them down without letting them penetrate the fabric. It is ineffective against high-velocity projectiles such as explosive shrapnel, rifle ammunition, and explosives. These materials were likely used simply because they sounded very futuristic and cool by 80s standards.

* NeverBareheaded: Unlike other version, Murphy's never seen without his helmet.
