* AdaptationalBadass: Rusty. In the comic, he existed only to get [[TheWorfEffect stomped flat by monsters]] & annoy Big Guy. While he still does that in the cartoon, he manages to become a genuinely effective (& likeable) character.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: Given that AI are established as having no rights in this world (one episode has a more primitive, but still clearly intelligent, robot being casually scraped), it's somewhat hard to not feel a bit of sympathy for the Legion Ex Machina.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Zigzagged. Some don't, like the Squidillians which ironically have a StarfishLanguage. Some do like the MechanicalLifeforms which accidentally make Rusty more "human," including being able to feel pain when "repairing" him, and their enemies who hunt them (which Big Guy and Rusty later fight), and notably Po, the Obliterator.



** Goes Double with Po, the Obliterator. Not only does he leave his power armor out the back, [[spoiler: when he literally gets stomped by Big Guy, his armor breaks apart, but first, and Po cowers in "crash position."]]

Added DiffLines:

* VillainsWantMercy: Some antagonists play it straight, like Po, the Obliterator, while others like Dr. Neugog subvert it by pretending to surrender so they can backstab their opponents.

* MotherlyScientist: Dr. Erika Slate, Rusty's creator, treats the boy robot as her own son throughout the series. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] more than once.

* MotherlyScientist: Dr. Erika Slate, Rusty's creator, treats the boy robot as her own son throughout the series. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] more than once. It's not just to Rusty either. She's been shown to have exceptional maternal instincts. When she was forced to pilot Big Guy, due to Lt. Hunter coming down with an alien illness, she subdues the alien carrier which is the size of Godzilla, not by tranquilizing it, or beating it to submission, but by realizing that ''it's a toddler with a cold'', and treating it accordingly, to Lt, Hunter's chagrin when he sees the news footage later.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Rare, but it does happen. Donovan can occasionally be found correct about certain things. Dr. Neugog wouldn't be a man-spider if he heeded Donovan's warnings about the telepathy experiment,(considering Donovan's absolute loathing for safety protocols, this should have triggered a huge, red warning flag for Dr. Neugog), and had Dr. Slate told him that their mainframe was under cyber-attack by the Legion Ex Machina instead of merely stating that Rusty's in trouble (one robot vs the entire obligations of Quark Enterprises) Donovan might not have been
so quick to try to start a reboot.

* DeathByIrony: A Legion Big Guy duplicate who tries to use the powerful chest cannon that the model Dwayne uses doesn't have, due to it being taken out so he could pilot it, ends up having the gun blocked off, resulting in its destruction.

* KnightOfCerebus: Zig-Zagged with the Legion Ex Machina. While Season 2 has a number of episodes where the Legion Ex Machina's plans border on bizarre or kind of lame, the organization is taken much more seriously than most of the one-off threats, and generally get ''very'' close to murdering the heroes.

** 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.]]
