Added DiffLines:

** Also played for laughs with [[RobotBuddy Joey]]. He's Rob's friend, but he has more than a few moments of ComedicSociopathy.


Added DiffLines:

* SinisterShades: Reich wears mirror shades, as seen in the intro [[DoomedHometown where they reflect Rob's village getting blown up.]]

** Hobbins on Mrs. Piermont:
-->"She wanted me to FLUSH her OVERFLOW pipe."
** And that noisy hydraulic press in the recycling plant.
--> "It's wheezing and banging...Like an asthmatic dinosaur in the mating season!"

Added DiffLines:

* AIIsACrapshoot: LINC took over the Council and became an evil dictator of Union City.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Dystopia}}: It is natural for the {{Cyberpunk}} setting. The city is controlled by the evil computer LINC.


Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Discussed in the epilogue. LINC became evil because it learned the human weaknesses.
---> ''[[spoiler: Overmann]]'': The fusion process was an apparent success, but the computer shared access to my human failings. It learned of greed, of vanity. It reveled in the power it wielded. I was almost powerless in the hands of this monster.
---> ''Robert'': Which is the monster[[spoiler:, father]]? The computer, or you?

Added DiffLines:

* LampshadeHanging: Robert does it quite often. For example:
** When he uses a grappling hook [[spoiler: to swing from the factory's fire exit to the security building]] he says "This could be the most stupid thing I've ever done". The second time he swings across using the same cable, he says "This could be the second most stupid thing I've ever done".
** Near the end there is a closed door. When you click on it, Robert says "I've gut a hunch I've got to open that".[[note]]he doesn't have to.[[/note]]
