Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: The police's role is to maintain law and order. However, when the OCP order them to forcibly relocate the poor people of Cadillac Heights, they refuse and quiet in disgust, joining the resistance.


* BlatantLies: The OCP's TV ad about the Rehabs peacefully relocating the poor doesn't correspond in any way what the Rehabs are doing for real on the streets. In fact, it's far from helpful and and very violent.

* AllThereInTheManual: The comic adaptation does have few details not seen in the movie, including the CEO being Bob Morton's dad, the Rehabs setting up base in Metro West happened during Nikko's visit, and [[spoiler:none of Murphy's fellow officers bought that he killed Lewis and realized it was the Rehabs who did it]].

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: In addition to the meaning behind Otomo's name (see MeaningfulName above), he's most likely named after Creator/KatsuhiroOtomo, the author of ''Manga/{{Akira}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* GreatOffscreenWar: The Amazon War mentioned throughout the franchise gets mentioned again as the Rehabs are former soldiers/mercenaries who'd served in the conflict and it's a still active one, going by the headline of ''USA Today'' Lewis is reading when she's introduced.

Added DiffLines:

* StupidCrooks: The guy who tried to rob a late night doughnut shop. Even putting aside the stereotype, he missed the half a dozen or so cop cars in the parking lot.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The Splatterpunks get the idea to shoot [=RoboCop=] in the mouth, reasoning he's weak there. One protests ("cyborg eat bullets") but the other adds that they'll set him on fire, too.
** Subverted in that Robocop's face is only a superficial layer of skin as it's all metal beneath.

too. They manage to set him on fire, but don't get to try the other part. Not that it would have worked, since Robocop's face is only a superficial layer of skin as it's all stretched over a metal beneath.skeleton. It's doubtful a bullet would have caused any damage even if they had got it straight down his throat.



* FollowTheChaos: When [=RoboCop=] goes off looking for revenge, the rest of the rebels reason they could just drive around town listening for explosions if they want to find him.
