* DesignatedHero: Throughout the entire movie, Johnny is [[{{Jerkass}} completely self-absorbed and unsympathetic]], as well as totally unheroic, and yet he's supposed to be viewed as a hero protagonist. He constantly whines to other people that they’re not doing enough to solve ''his'' own problems. He informs the Yakuza of the location of [=LoTek=] Headquarters. He prepares to abandon Jane when she gets sick (after she’s saved his life more than once). And, most of all, Johnny never places a higher value on the information in his head (which could save the lives of ''millions'') than on his own life.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: For the sake of setting up the film's own climatic showdown between two warring factions, before Johnny goes and seeks help from the [=LoTeks=] (the good guys willing to help him), he telephones the evil MegaCorp that intends to kill him in order to let them know where he is going and that he'll be meeting with their enemies. Even Jane [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out on how stupid this is]].

** Closeup shots of the connector jack in the back of Johnny's head (seen when expanding his storage capacity with a "doubler" and when beginning to download the data to his implant) are obviously a mannequin prop, complete with plastic "hair."

* HamAndCheese / LargeHam: Creator/DolphLundgren and HenryRollins [[ChewingTheScenery chew up the scenery]] big time. Arguably the best parts of the movie despite the mere minutes of screen time between them.
