* MeatSackRobot: Even though the terminators through out the franchise have been referred to as "cyborgs" (which in the strictest sense of anything composed of both biological material and robotic technology can be true), however they are non-living machines with living tissue attached to themselves instead of being living beings with technological modifications grafted onto their bodies.
** In the ExpandedUniverse, the I-Series Terminators are cloned humans whose bodies are controlled by a CPU and other cybernetic implants. Because of this, they are [[TheyLookLikeEveryoneElse undetectable on a physical level]], and even if their fragile human bodies are killed, the cybernetic components can [[AutoRevive revive them]] after a few hours. They even [[MasterOfYourDomain have complete control over all biological processes]], such as being able to sweat, stop bleeding, cure infections, and [[FeelNoPain ignore pain]] on command.
** In ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'', [[spoiler:Marcus Wright]] is basically a flesh-covered robot over robot-covered-flesh. His brain, his heart and certain other functions are all organic, and his flesh and skin are his own. His brain, however, is outfitted with a chip that not only relays information to Skynet, but allows the supercomputer to give him subtle "nudges" to carry out directives.

** The first film due to its {{Horror}} themes, miniscule budget, featuring the T-101 as the main villain, and [[YouAlreadyChangedThePast rigid rules on time travel.]]

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first film sets up the basic premise of the series, but possesses few of the tropes that the second or third movie, nor the TV series, uses. For example, this is the only film in which the time-displaced bodyguard is human[[note]]justified because of who Kyle is[[/note]], it's far closer to horror than its sequels[[note]]justified because during the time it was filmed, slasher films were the only way to make a name for yourself in Hollywood-ironically, this movie helped buck that trend[[/note]], and it's the only one to play YouAlreadyChangedThePast completely straight[[note]]every other live-action production has either attempted to ScrewDestiny or at least acknowledged that the future has changed [[InSpiteOfANail at least a little[[/note]]. The low-budget production, the very 80s fashions, the synth music, and other things add to the weirdness.

** The upcoming ''Genisys'' will apparently deal with the creation or one as a result of [[spoiler: one of more time-travelers interfering with the events of the first film in 1984]].

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted with Reese, who is a badass hero and a virgin for much of the film. He does lose his virginity to Sarah Connor, but this is a legitimate plot point [[spoiler:-- John Connor's conception --]] rather than just to up Reese's Badass credentials.
** In ''T3'', the Terminator tells John that their children will be important later. Knowing this, it's possible he and Kate make it a point to have kids.
** ''T4'' makes it pretty clear that most people are too busy ''not dying'' to try and get some...And yet Kate is clearly pregnant through the whole film.
