** 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.

* [[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]]!

* CranialProcessingUnit: Zig-zagged. The stun gloves work by application to the back of a Cyberman head, but a Cyberman is shown to be able to purposefully detach its head without loss of function.

* AdaptiveAbility: The Cybermen adapt ''very'' quickly to whatever is thrown at any one of them, since they are all linked in the Cyberiad. It's hard not to be impressed by software patches that are able to fix hardware problems.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The Captain definitely twigs onto Angie's mention of Porridge, and takes her aside saying they need to talk. On first watch, it seems that the Captain wants to know about squatters living on the planet, but after TheReveal that A) She previously was part of [[spoiler: The Emperor's guard detail]] and B) [[spoiler: that Porridge is the Emperor]], the reason for her reaction becomes far more clear.

* WeaksauceWeakness: The infamous gold allergy. Most of the Cybermen have evolved beyond it, but the cyber-mites' operating system ''still'' contains this glitch buried deep within the source code. This causes the tech to be temporarily scrambled by gold until the Cyber-Planner manages to install a software patch.

* TheBusCameBack: ** The proper return of the Mondasian Cybermen since 1988. [[note]]By WordOfGod, the technology is a merger of Cybus and Mondas-based Cybermen, though the story uses a lot of elements and inspirations from the 1960s incarnations, and appears to follow the Cyber-Wars mentioned in later, but pre-Cybus, seasons[[/note]] Previous appearances going back to the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E12ThePandoricaOpens "The Pandorica Opens"]] have been confirmed to be Mondasian Cybermen by WordOfGod, but the costumes weren't updated (or just had the Cybus logo removed). These ones have updated costumes.

** Mr. Webley's museum of oddities likewise contains several [[PropRecycling reused props]], including Cybus-brand Cybermen and one of the ventriloquist's dummies from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E11TheGodComplex "The God Complex"]], a very familiar vulture from ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' and [[Recap/TorchwoodS2E1KissKissBangBang that coked-up blowfish]] from ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''. * ContinuityNod: ** This being a Creator/NeilGaiman [[BigNameFan episode]], there are quite a lot of references to old stories such as the Mondasian Cybermen.
