* SpoilerTitle: How much more suspenseful would the beginning of the episode been if the title hadn't already informed the audience of the "Metaltron"'s true nature?

* StealthInsult: While telling Van Statten about the Daleks, the Doctor says they were created by a man who "lived in his own little world", and then tells Van Statten that "You'd like him." Van Statten, of course, has no way of knowing that the man in question, Davros, is one of the Doctor's [[Archenemy archenemies]] and the Doctor ''hates'' him.

* KickTheDog: Van Statten has an executive brainwiped simply for giving him the wrong answer.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Goddard, arguably a BitchInSheepsClothing herself, promptly removes Van Statten from [=GeoComTex=] after he causes 200 deaths and gives him the karmic punishment of firing and mind-wiping him just as he did to the people he didn't like, and dumping his grubby keister "somewhere with an 'S'" without a scant trace of his [[LaserGuidedAmnesia own identity]].

* {{Foreshadowing}}: One of the techs mentions that the last person to touch the "Metaltron" burst into flames. When Rose touches the Dalek, because she's a time traveler it feeds from her and draws enough power to free itself.

* ConservationOfNinjitsu: The lone Dalek wipes out the base's security, takes command of the place, and establishes itself as a very credible threat to the ''world'', reminding us why these creatures are the Doctor's greatest enemy.

* FirstTimeInTheSun: The Dalek feels the sun on its body for the first time.

** The real kicker is that the latter is long before the Time War, and the former is not long after, over half a dozen incarnations later. Three treats this kind of situation like a staunch, reserved, and observant gentleman who is happy to be in a position of superiority over a group of Daleks and believes there's a real chance at turning the tables on them. But after seeing the Daleks have grown into a much bigger threat and propelled the Time War, Nine is reduced to a panicked, hopeless fear just to be in the same room as a Dalek, and then gets worked up into a frothing rage turning openly wrathful and vindictive, maybe even bloodthirsty, at just ''one'' Dalek.
