** The ED-209's are just as heavily armed, but far more intelligent than the original. They still have flawed programming, but are ridiculously precise in what they are shooting at, and do so efficiently.

** Thanks to modern CGI, this version of Robocop is a much flashier LightningBruiser, compared to the original's Golem-like MightyGlacier.


Added DiffLines:

* DiscOneFinalBoss: Antoine Vallon, the crime lord responsible for Murphy's murder and resurrection as Robocop, is dispatched about 2/3rds of the way through the film. Sellars, who had absolutely no connection to Vallon or his schemes, ends up becoming the film's ultimate villain after trying to kill Murphy for completely unrelated and relatively petty reasons.


* IHaveAFamily: When Murphy tries to interrogate Jerry for Vallon's whereabouts, Jerry begs for mercy, stating he has a wife and kids. Unfortunately for the thug, Murphy has access to all information on criminals and a quick search reveals that not only has Jerry's wife left him for domestic abuse, [[BlatantLies he also has no children.]]
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Clara says it almost word-for-word to Alex while he's emotion-suppressed. This is what makes him start fighting the programming.

* SayingTooMuch: After Norton wakes up Alex Murphy as Robocop, Murphy wonders why he can "feel" his robotic limbs. Norton's assistant lets slip a comment about amputees feeling phantom limbs which causes Murphy to panic and demand to know what they have done to him. This provokes Murphy to try and get away which Norton allows to happen to an extent before shutting him down for retrieval.

* CurbStompBattle: Implied to have been the case with the US-Iranian war that occurred some time before the film, resulting in Iran being occupied by the heavily robotic forces of the US military. The vast majority of the population is cowed by the overwhelming firepower of the occupation forces, while what's left of the Iranian Army and Revolutionary Guards is reduced to fighting an ineffectual guerrilla insurgency against the highly advanced robots.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion:
** Sellars insists that they make [=RoboCop=] all black, which is funny considering that's what they did with Creator/MichaelKeaton's ''Film/{{Batman|1989}}.''
** Mattox's VillainousBreakdown upon seeing [=RoboCop=] up and running after his vitals went offline. His growling "damn damn damn" [[Film/{{Watchmen}} sounds particularly familiar]]. Not to mention that his idea of "what's greater than a hero" is "Dead hero." Consider Rorschach's eventual fate.

Added DiffLines:

* ActionFilmQuietDramaScene: There's a fantastic and gut-wrenching scene about a third of the way in where [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXOhIJg4B7k Murphy sees]] [[BodyHorror sees what he's become]] and nearly [[FreakOut has a mental breakdown]] in front of Dr. Norton as a result.


* InsaneTrollLogic: Citing Murphy's success in drastically reducing the crime rate, Novak says that those who oppose the Dreyfus Act repeal must be "pro-crime".
