* BatmanGambit: Eleven threatening to regenerate, seeing as how he couldn't due to this being his last life



* ShipSinking: Attempted. Clara doesn't believe the Doctor would ''ever'' fall in love with her, and even if he did, he would rather die than admit it. One should take this with a grain of salt, given her earlier comments on the subject.

* DistaffCounterpart: This is the first episode to give Clara Doctor-like responsibility, and as such is a forerunner to later episodes which establish her becoming a distaff counterpart to the Doctor.



* LamePunReaction: Clara laughs when Porridge says the power glove might come in handy. The Captain doesn't

** Averted when we a Cyberman is seen walking into water, a common example of this trope for robots, but all it does is slow it down before it [[NoSell No Sells]] it.

to:

* [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend He Is Not My Boyfriend]]: Averted. When Artie refers to the Doctor as "Clara's Boyfriend", neither of them deny it.



* IncrediblyLamePun: Clara laughs when Porridge says the power glove might come in handy. The Captain doesn't.



* IShallTauntYou: At the end of his chess game, the Doctor claims he can win in three moves. This is such a bare-faced lie that the Cyber-Planner borrows the computing power of his entire army to definitively prove the Doctor's full of it. This allows Clara and the soldiers to escape an otherwise-imminent demise and the Doctor to modify a pulse glove to free himself. For the record, the Doctor was indeed lying. He did not have mate [[ExactWords in three moves]]. [[http://setsuled.livejournal.com/880790.html He had it]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome in six]]. After all,he [[ExactWords didn't say]] he "had mate" in three moves, he said he ''would win'' in three moves.

** The Cybermen took ''many''. They went from being somewhat slow-moving cyborgs that had several methods of taking them down to graduating into {{Lightning Bruiser}}s by means of SuperSpeed, require special guns to even damage them, can now convert races other than human (Time Lords included), and a ''very'' quick AdaptiveAbility. They've also stopped saying "[[RoarBeforeBeating Delete!]]" It seems these Cyberman don't bother with giving advanced warnings, preferring to simply grab people and convert them as quickly as possible, since it's far more ''efficient''. The upgrade is so severe, the Cybermen, a planetful of which were getting [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E13Doomsday mowed down by only four Daleks once upon a time]], appear capable of ''curbstomping'' them now. Most frightening of all, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking they stopped talking in those high-pitched electronic voices and have gone to a]] [[EvilSoundsDeep Deep Baritone]]!
