* AwesomeMusic: Chuck Cirino's synthesized score is every bit as daft as what's on screen. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ksZSTR61Y4 Here's a sample]].
* SignatureScene: the "Laser Head Explosion" scene.
* VindicatedByHistory: More of commercially, not really critically. When the movie first was first released in 1986, it was a box office bomb. Producer Roger Corman and the creators blamed this on the film's original title, ''Killbots'', which they thought made audiences believe the film was some sort of Transformers-type cartoon movie. When they changed the title to it's current one, it did substantially better business at the box office.
