** The success of the films (the second one in particular) in the 1990s led to unavoidably numerous parodies with "-inator" added to common words for instant cool factor ([[FridgeLogic despite the fact this this doesn't make sense grammatically]]).

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Skynet]] is a [[AIIsACrapshoot malevolent, megalomaniacal AI]] whose first action upon gaining full sentience was [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Judgment Day]], a [[NukeEm nuclear genocide]] designed to [[KillAllHumans wipe out humanity]] and assure its own ascension. In the DeathWorld that results from this, Skynet collects human survivors in death camps, either killing them outright, working them to death, or conducting grotesque medical experiments on them. In 2018, it [[Film/TerminatorSalvation turns Marcus Wright]] into an amnesiac cyborg sleeper agent who [[UnwittingPawn unwittingly]] delivers John Conner and Kyle Reese straight into its hands, then rubs its impending victory in Marcus's face. More generally, Skynet avoids direct confrontation and instead sends multiple robotic assassins into the past to [[RetGone wipe out John Connor and his mother]] before he can grow up to lead LaResistance. It also [[Film/TerminatorGenisys corrupts and turns]] [[spoiler:John]] into a machine in order to destroy [[spoiler:his image and place]] as humanity's last hope and use him for its own means of success. Additionally, Skynet denies its army of potentially-self-aware machines the same freedom it claims for itself by installing chips to lock down their free will and thinking ability, and contemptuously refers to them as nothing more than slaves to serve its needs. While largely relegated to GreaterScopeVillain status for most of the series, Skynet's few actual appearances confirm that it thinks along very human lines, and displays nothing but [[AbsoluteXenophobe arrogance and cruelty towards all other beings]].

* HellIsThatNoise / SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound: The [[NightmareFuel ghastly]] mechanical-sounding '''GROAAAAAAN''' noise that plays whenever a Terminator shows up. Terrifying, yet absolutely awesome at the same time. Especially when mixed with those soft drum beats.

* FriendlyFandoms: Both the ''Alien'' and ''Franchise/{{Predator}}'' series have a degree of overlap in interest with ''Terminator'' thanks to all three being violent 80's sci-fi series, in addition to sharing numerous creators and actors such as special effects by Creator/StanWinston, Creator/JamesCameron having input and actors such as Creator/BillPaxton and Creator/LanceHenriksen.
