** The armour is accurate for that time in Roman history. So are the gladii, AKA short swords used in the film by the Romans. Except the spears; for some reason they are older thrusting spears (hastae), not period-accurate javelins (pila) which have telltale elongated spearheads.

** Women's status is depicted appropriate elevation for what it was in Pict culture.
** The language choice for the Picts, which would have been an approximation of a Celt break-off language.
** The diversity of the Roman army, which was a amalgamation of various conquered peoples under the rule of the Roman Empire.

* TranslationConvention: The Scots-Gaelic is meant to represent the Picts' language while naturally the English the Romans speak is supposed to be Latin.

* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: [[spoiler: One of Etain's good reasons to hate the 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.

* DesignatedGirlFight: Seems like it could be heading this way as both sides appear to have one ActionGirl each but it turns out Etain is one of the Picts as well, giving them two.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Aeron]] is stabbed by Ubriculius with an arrow she shot him with.



* KillEmAll: [[spoiler: Everyone in the Ninth Legion dies. Everyone of the picts sent after Dias dies. Pretty much everyone except Dias and Arianne dies.]]

* MenAreTheExpendableGender: Played with since one DarkActionGirl on the Picts side is killed fairly simply in the final battle with almost no fanfare at all.

* DwindlingParty: [[spoiler: Only Dias, Borthos, and Thax make it to Hadrian's Wall. Dias implicitly calls Thax out his treachery, and Thax is killed in their ensuing struggle. Borthos is shot with an arrow by the Romans, who mistake him for a Pict, killing him. So Dias is the only one who makes it inside. [[ShootTheShaggyDog Not that it matters anyways because the Romans try to kill him after all that]] [[HeKnowsTooMuch to keep the fate of the Ninth Legion a secret.]]]]

* 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.
