* CompleteMonster: [[MadScientist Dr. Charles Luther]] is a genius [[RobotMaster roboticist]] and [[TheCracker hacker]] who creates spiderbot assassins, a gun with heat-seeking bullets, and a chip that can turn any regular robot into a weapon; [[ArmsDealer all for sale on the black market to the highest bidder]]. Luther kills almost everyone he encounters over the course of the movie in increasingly brutal fashion. Additionally, he regularly beats his girlfriend, tries to kill her when she's taken by the police to keep her from talking, and ultimately puts a knife through her skull the second she is returned to him as part of a hostage exchange. His final encounter with Sgt. Jack Ramsay is designed to psychologically torture the cop as much as possible--he kidnaps his son Bobbie, sets up the exchange on top of a high rise to play to Ramsay's acrophobia and vertigo, then releases Bobbie--only to inform Ramsay that [[YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo his robots are waiting to kill the first person who exits the building]].
