* StrawmanHasAPoint: The nature of Soylent Green is certainly ghoulish, but it is ''literately'' the only resource left; the populace has a MortonsFork of either cannibalism or mass starvation.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Considering the state of the world, it makes ''perfect sense'' to recycle human matter into food. Many critics have noted that Thorn's rant was silly.

** It certainly doesn't help that the [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil trailer spoiled it]].
** ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' worked it into an episode about Homer and Marge's sexual relations. [[spoiler:"It's people! People have soiled our greens!"]] A look into the future also had Homer saying "Mmm...Soylent Green."
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has Soylent Cola. The taste "[[DoubleEntendre varies from person to person.]]"
** In ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'', low clearance citizens have to make do with Soylent Red. They only get the Green stuff when they advance up the ranks.

* FridgeHorror: Sure on the surface the film may look like a silly, dated 70s sci-fi flick but the core idea, [[spoiler:making food from people in a desperate, last ditch effort to save the human race by making food from the most abundant source - people]] is still undeniably horrifying.

* HarsherInHindsight: Roth's suicide. The actor playing him, Edward G. Robinson, was dying of cancer. Only Heston knew. And because of this, [[EnforcedMethodActing Heston's tears were ''real'']].
