* DorkAge: The attempts to aim the franchise towards children, ''Film/RoboCop3'', ''Series/RoboCopTheSeries'', and ''[=RoboCop=]: Alpha Commando'' were not well-received by the fandom, because of their exact purpose: toning down what'd been a very adult-set of films to little kids. Despite the attempts made by ''Series/RoboCopPrimeDirectives'' and [[Film/RoboCop2014 the reboot]], the franchise haven't recovered.

* HarsherInHindsight: Robocop depicted a futuristic Detroit as a bankrupt, crime rampant city. Sadly, since this movie has come out, present day Detroit has become bankrupt and overrun by crime.

* DorkAge: Given it's a children cartoon and Murphy being portrayed in a manner akin to WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget, it really didn't help the state of the franchise following ''Film/RoboCop3'' and ''Series/RoboCopTheSeries''.

* InternetBacklash: It only took a single trailer to cause massive backlash against the remake. The biggest complaints have been the fact that [[{{Bowdlerise}} it's rated PG-13]] (considering a lot of the appeal of the series is BloodyHilarious and BlackComedy), Robocop has been given a black-colored redesign (the film following the incredibly immature "black colored equals cool" idea), and the fact that the satire that forms such a big part of the series seems completely absent, with the whole story having been made into a cliché that appeals to the LowestCommonDenominator.

* {{Sequelitis}}: ''2'' and to a greater extent, ''3''.

* {{Sequelitis}}: ''2'' and to a greater extent, ''3''. The remake was widely agreed to not be up to the standard of the original, but considered arguably better than ''2'', and still way, '''way''' better than ''3''.

* {{Flanderization}}: The Old Man of OCP is, in the first film, something of an occasionally [[CloudCuckooLander eccentric]] CEO of the company who reacts to the butchering of one of his employees with a ''"I'm '''very''' disappointed."'' but is otherwise presented as a if not benevolent then decent enough individual who wants to make Detriot better and plans to do so by not only redeveloping Old Detriot into Delta City, but also funding public services and the like. He's not good, but he's certainly not ''evil''. The next films have him as an outright CorruptCorporateExecutive who is complacent in the butchering of several police officers for the [=RoboCop=] 2 project, and who throws one of his employees to the wolves when it doesn't work out, and he only gets worse from there.
