- Les Yay: Implied after the Mayor's wife kisses Rose's cheek.
- Moral Event Horizon: Cane doesn't actually cross this until he shoots the Mayor's wife (he was aiming for the Mayor, but still...)
- Special Effects Failure: Two glaring incidents in the movie, and they're done multiple times. The first is when Erica enters Cane's room and the door opens outward, leading to the first of many running gags:
Crow: Wha... Doors don't open like that! There's a number... he's in the hall!
- Another are some of the nighttime scenes where you know it's still sunny out there. One scene accidentally gives Rose an eerie glow to her, leaving Servo to let out a hum similar to Cocoon
- What an Idiot: The Mayor. With Cain's increased desire and efforts to kill him, he does nothing to have Cain arrested or does nothing to arm himself for self-defense on an equal level, leading to both himself and his wife dying needlessly.
