* 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.

* ConservationOfNinjitsu: The lone Dalek wipes out the base's security, takes command of the place, drains all electrical power from the ''entire west coast of the United States'', and establishes itself as a very credible threat to the ''world'', reminding us why these creatures are the Doctor's greatest enemy.

* EvilIsNotAToy

to:

* EvilIsNotAToyEvilIsNotAToy: Van Statten continues to treat the Dalek as the prize of his collection, ignoring the Doctor's warnings.



* FalseInnocenceTrick

to:

* FalseInnocenceTrickFalseInnocenceTrick: The Dalek pulls this on Rose, only to get a bit more than it bargained for when absorbing her [=DNA=] causes it to actually start feeling things like "compassion".
* 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.

** Also this line...

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: Well, aside from the fact that the Dalek is the last of its kind, it's a bronze-casing Time War model Dalek. In other words, a basic footsoldier drone, finding out that its entire command structure and allies have literally been all destroyed, to the last unit. Compare it to a hardcore SS trooper finding out that the Reich has suddenly ceased to exist, and eating his gun.

Added DiffLines:

* ShockingVoiceIdentityReveal: The Dalek's distinctive voice and [[TalkingLightbulb flashing headlamps]] are all the Doctor needs for the horror to sink in.

Added DiffLines:

* SuicideDare: The Ninth Doctor delivers this line almost verbatim to the titular creature, and gets a great big ShutUpHannibal for his efforts. An unusual case of the [[AntiHero (anti-)]]hero delivering this line to the villain.

** Although not named, Davros is given a ShoutOut when the Doctor is asked who created the Daleks.
--->'''The Doctor:''' By a genius, van Statten. A man who was king of his own little world. [[StealthInsult You'd like him]].



** The Daleks putting the "technical" in the Doctor's TechnicalPacifist nature is [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E4PlanetOfTheDaleks nothing]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E4ResurrectionOfTheDaleks new]]. (See also BerserkButton.)
** Van Statten's line about how his men are replaceable but the Dalek is unique is quoted almost word-for-word (replacing "Krynoid" with "Dalek") from Harrison Chase in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E6TheSeedsOfDoom "The Seeds of Doom"]].

Added DiffLines:

** "EL-LEVATE!" After years of being joke antagonists, one line made quite sure these would be far more terrifying and less joke-prone than their older incarnations.

Added DiffLines:

* BatmanGrabsAGun: The Doctor, upon realizing what Van Statten's hiding, tries to torture the Dalek to death.


Added DiffLines:

* CharacterShilling: The Doctor's description of the damage one Dalek could do unchecked. Notably, this episode reintroduces the Daleks from the original show as a threat, when previously they'd suffered BadassDecay. TropesAreNotBad.


Added DiffLines:

** Played straight with the old Cyberman head, foreshadowing the next series.


Added DiffLines:

** "DOK. TOR." While the title gave away what Van Statten had in his basement, hearing the voice again qualifies both in-universe and for fans.
