* SpoiledByTheFormat: Frequently, the Mysterious Culprit (the real killer in "Prime Suspect," or the organ thief in "What Money Can't Buy") turns out to be the only remaining guest character who hasn't either been killed already or shown to be guilty of something else.

Several other characters were seen in the series, including Murphy's wife Nancy and son Jimmy, as well as Diana Powers, an OCP executive who is murdered and has her brain uploaded into OCP's new [[WetwareCPU Metronet computer system]], thus allowing Murphy to access systems he wouldn't otherwise be able to get into.

* CrapsackWorld: While leagues above the world seen in the original film trilogy, the world in ''The Series'' isn't a picnic, either. It issaid in dialogue that a war in the Amazon is going on (though such a war was mentioned in the original trilogy, too), sections of Beverly Hills and Brooklyn have been walled off, and it's perfectly legal to market plushies that double as hand grenades and steroids (with the FamilyUnfriendlyAesop that weaker kids deserve to get bullied, no less) to children. Also, speaking English in France can land you in jail, the Italian government has fallen, and the mayor and DA are corrupt and in league with other criminals (with the latter having a fake law degree and helped to frame someone for said phony degree).

* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: Diana has holographic projectors ''everywhere'': [=RoboCop's=] patrol car and the police station are understandable, but they've also been seen in such places as an abandoned church, the sewers, etc. Why would anyone put them in places like that?

* ParodyCommercial: One of the main [[BlackComedy comedic draws]] of the show, usually advertising [[MyLittlePanzer deadly Commander Cash toys]], but oftentimes other things as well.

* StrawFeminist: Two epsidoes ("Inside Crime" and "Sisters in Crime") feature a CorruptCorporateExecutive named Rochelle Carney, who outright said in her debut that she considered everything a gender issue, even blaming her getting fired when she returns on her being a woman and her boss, Aubrey Fox, being a louse who hit on her. While Fox did indeed try to hook up with her, [[NeverMyFault she refused to acknowledge the real reason she got fired]], which was because she was in league with the series' {{archenemy}} "Pudface" Morgan (who, among other things, tried to kill Robo repeatedly, took a retirement home's citizen hostage, led a siege on OCP heaquarters, and helped push a deinhibitor as a diet pill) as part of a ratings stunt.
