** The whole Deckard and Rachel relationship becomes this come the sequel. [[spoiler: The BigBad all but states outright that Tyrell [[PerfectlyArrangedMarriage set the whole thing up]] just to test his theory that Replicants could reproduce. Given Tyrell's resources, Rachel being a Replicant, Deckard ''possibly'' being a Replicant, and the plans for Replicant offspring...]]

* AwesomeMusic: The soundtrack by Music/{{Vangelis}} is nothing short of a milestone in both the CyberPunk science fiction subgenre and ElectronicMusic in general. Especially "Main Title", "Love Theme", "Blade Runner Blues" and "End Titles".

** Does Rachael actually fall in love with Deckard or does she become his mistress because she knows it's the only way she can avoid being retired by other Bladerunners?
** Does Gaff let Rachael go because he has a moment of compassion, wants Deckard's job, or because a Bladerunner having a Replicant mistress is just part of the DirtyCop nature of the work?

** It was the first Philip K. Dick adaptation in motion pictures and, as Creator/AlanMoore noted in an essay on science-fiction, it marked a more post-modern approach to movie science-fiction compared to earlier films, openly making dystopias an allegory for contemporary concerns, issues of identity, and urbanization, with set-design, costumes, and other props visually communicating its aesthetic via WorldBuilding, an aspect that many later science-fiction films, such as ''Film/TotalRecall'', ''Film/MinorityReport'' (both are PKD adaptations), ''Film/AIArtificialIntelligence'' and ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' would incorporate.

* WriterInducedFanon: Ridley Scott is quite keen on the idea that Deckard is a Replicant over the objections of the screenwriters and Harrison Ford himself. Scott got the idea mid-production. It wasn't originally in the Philip K. Dick novel nor was it planned at pre-production. Harrison Ford feels that Deckard has to be the main human being the audiences can relate to and properly be an AudienceSurrogate and he was openly angry when Scott tried to [[spoiler:insert the Unicorn origami scene since he caught on what he was trying to do]]. Hampton Fancher in any case feels that Deckard's humanity or lack thereof should never be openly addressed and become part of the surface experience of the film, and remain an issue of speculation.

*** Unfortunately emphasized by the concept that Replicants are often referred to as "skin jobs," a term stated to be analogous to the N-word. The vast majority of the murder-by-cop cases have been against African Americans.

** It's very nearly 2019, and for the last few years, many cities have begun installing talking crosswalk signs to accommodate people with vision disabilities. MostAnnoyingSound indeed.
