* DespairEventHorizon: After Mornay and Lochlan betray Wallace and lead their cavalry off the field at Falkirk, Wallace gets an arrow to the shoulder, but musters a HeroicSecondWind to mount a horse and make a suicidal charge at the king. When he's unhorsed he pulls a dagger and unmasks the knight who knocked him down. When he sees that it's Robert the Bruce, all the fight goes out of him and he just lies down. This triggers Robert's HeelRealization and he helps Stephen get Wallace off the field.

* AdventurousIrishViolins: Braveheart is in love with this trope; its a wonderful example of its flexibility, for although the heroes are Scots-Highlanders (and an Irishman), the passionate strains of said trope in the musical score still flawlessly evoke the highland spirit of energetic playfulness, savage bloodlust, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs and energetically playful savage bloodlust]].

* AntiVillain: [[spoiler: Robert the Bruce is [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains type II.]] He's ''definitely'' not a bad person, and really does seem to admire Wallace, but he is also weak and easily manipulated by his father, who convinces him to go along with the nobles' betrayal of Wallace at Falkirk. [[HeroicBSOD Seeing Wallace's face fraught with despair]] once he learns that Robert has betrayed him makes the bruce realize he was wrong, and he saves Wallace's life while making a determined HeelFaceTurn in the process. When his father uses him to betray Wallace yet again, he makes it clear to his old man, in no uncertain terms, that he is now [[ThisIsUnforgivable forever dead to him.]]]]
