** This worst case of this was when an alien presumed to be a threat was [[GoodAllAlong just trying to get back home]], EP-327 determined Big Guy as an enemy for "defending the enemy" and [[OffWithHisHead shot his head off]].

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In "Double Time Part 1", the Legion Ex Machina create an almost perfect replica of Big Guy, but with completed AI without any of the flaws the real one was bound to have, and with a WaveMotionGun inside of its chest that was, according to the replica, from the original schematics. [[spoiler:It turns out that the Legion Ex Machina were created by the same person who created Big Guy, and had ready access to those schematics, via accessing his brain.]]

* {{Hypocrite}}: Despite the Legion Ex Machina boasting the superiority of man over machine, [[spoiler:they use their creator, Dr. Poindexter, as their own personal computer for their own ends, in essence relying on a human for a majority of their plans]].

* RetroUniverse: The series takes place in a world with complex robot AI and holographic recording devices, but there's retro-futuristic styling to the computers and microphones. The cars tend towards "classic," and the military seems to be structured as it was before the Air Force split off from the Army.

* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: Quite a few antagonists do this during the series. Edie, Dr. Neugog, and even Pierre. The crown has to go to Po, The Obliterator. His hat is going to populated planets, force their mightiest champion to fight him in an "honorable" duel, or he simply destroys the planet "for laughs." Once the fight begins, he just keeps trolling his opponent by playing one dirty trick after another until his opponent's worn down, and then renders him unconscious to take as a trophy to constantly mock in PeopleJars. When Big Guy had the opportunity for a rematch, which many of Po's other victims did not get, he showed Po exactly how it feels on the receiving end. He was even prepared in case Po decided not to honor the terms of the agreement and leave quietly.

* EpicFail: Every time Donovan's R-G-B robots make an appearance, they're bound to do this. They have corrupt code in every system, so even the simplest commands are too much for them. As a prime example, when Donovan cries out "Flee" they hear "flea" and drop the bus they were carrying (with Donovan in it) to start grooming a giant two-headed ape, by plucking off all its fleas, and that's the most benevolent example. Usually, trying to follow orders causes them to trash each other.

* GoshDarnItToHeck: Almost constantly. Unsurprisingly, Big Guy is the biggest offender.
---> "Thank Ford for interchangeable parts."

* IrrationalHatred: Rusty is Quark Industries' most successful product, the first true, benevolent, AI. One would think Donovan would do his best to praise Rusty and be proud of Dr. Slate's accomplishment on his payroll. Nope. He wants Rusty reduced to scrap-metal, badly. He outright cheered when Rusty was presumably lost in a kamikazee charge upon Argo II.
* {{Irony}}: Gryffin left the BGY-11 project because he didn't approve the idea of Big Guy being an artificial intelligence instead of a PoweredArmor. Because he left, he didn't learn they failed to develop a working intelligence for Big Guy and made it a PoweredArmor to hide the truth. Griffin eventually created his own PoweredArmor to compete against Big Guy and his defeat made him change his beliefs.
** Berated for a whole mission because everyone thought his childish emotions could hamper the efforts of the military, in the end Rusty is proven right. When Big Guy apologizes to him, Rusty calmly forgives him, stating that he couldn't understand what's like having human emotions, because his AI was meant to be just too archaic to have a functional emotional grid, but he still admires him.
