* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Colin cuts the head off Malike and it takes a very long time for him to notice.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Colin cuts the head off Malike and it takes a very long time for him to notice. Not to mention all the armored soldiers, battle droids, and ''tanks'' he cleaves through. This being an anime, it's forgivable that his katana behaves more like a lightsaber. ** Marcus' gladius has a nasty habit of cutting right through whatever sword Colin's using against him, until he finds a possibly magical katana in a burning Japanese temple.

This film explicitly takes place in an alternate continuity from the live-action Highlander adaptations. Besides, Immortals can't have children, and the future depicted in the film conflicts with the films and TV series.
* BraveScot: Colin is a Caledonian, one of the ancestors of the modern Scottish people. He later fights alongside his descendants who are resisting the English invasions of Scotland and is later inducted into the clan posthumously. The clan's name? Macleod. It's even implied he may be the ancestor of Connor and Duncan.

* TheGloryThatWasRome: Marcus was a Roman Legate and is absolutely obsessed with recreating the Pax Romana in his own image. He still lovingly wields his old Legionary gladius. We also get to see Rome's last moments before Alaric's Gothic army sacks it. Connor is among the Germanics, presumably as a Celtic mercenary.
