* SyntheticVoiceActor: An early example. ''"Destroy him, my robots!"''. The hilarious thing is, the synthesis was so good that the developers of the game actually thought they got the service of a ''human'' voice actor![[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impossible_Mission#Development]]. [[note]]This was because the voice synthesis job was outsourced to a company who specialized in speech synthesizers but had a side business of digitizing voice recordings. The trope was also zig-zagged since the synth chip was recorded conventionally and the result converted into PCM to be played back using the Commodore's SID PSG[[/note]]

* CopyProtection: Improperly copied discs will result in the hero getting vaporized in one particular area of a particular room for no reason at all. Thankfully, this occurred very early in game as so you don't waste too much time to find out. Unfortunately, it appears that a lot of disk images of this game have this copy protection triggered, so if you intend to emulate the game, good luck...

** Actually subverted. The PSG was being used to play back digital recordings- Epyx actually contracted a company called ''Electronic Speech Systems''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impossible_Mission#Development]], who got a member of their staff to perform a series of recordings on their behalf.
