* HotWitch: Arianne was accused of witchcraft, and deliberately creates the impression that she is a necromancer to protect herself, but she doesn't really have any magical powers, although she is an expert on woodcraft and herblore. She's definitely hot.

* AntiHero / AntiVillain: The Roman soliders are part of an invading army yet all they're trying to do is rescue their general and get back home. The Picts are trying to fight off an invasion and want revenge for the prince's murder but at the same time they're ruthless and don't exactly treat their own people any better.

* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: [[spoiler: One of Etain's good reason to hate Romans.]] Well if you want to be accurate it's: you killed my father, raped and murdered my mother, raped ''me'' and cut my tongue out.

* HighHeelFaceTurn: Inverted. The lone woman with the legion turns out to be a Mole for the Picts. Of course from the Picts' perspective, it's a straight example.

* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: Aeron (the Pict archer) is the light, while Etain is the dark. * LightIsNotGood: The pict archer Aeron is blonde and pale-skinned, dressing mainly in bright clothes. Unlike Etain, she's given no sympathetic motives and is portrayed to be just as ruthless as her male counterparts.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The Picts speak Scots Gaelic whereas in history, their language was remarkably similar to Welsh. Neil Marshall opted to use Scots Gaelic for fear of viewers getting confused about a Scottish army speaking Welsh.

* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: [[spoiler: One of Etain's good reason to hate Romans.]] ** Well if you want to be accurate it's: you killed my father, raped and murdered my mother, raped ''me'' and cut my tongue out.

** It should be noted that historically this was true of the Roman invasion of Britain. Despite their obvious military advancements of armor and forged weapons, they lost a vast majority of battles against the Picts, who frequently went into battle in little to no clothing. The Picts ruthless inventive guerrilla war style ended up giving them the advantage over the frequently starving and frozen Romans structure and strategy in this case.
