* SuspiciouslyAproposMusic: In droves. The film opens with Rainer listening to ''Rock'n'Roll Highschool'', a song about not carrying about history, not wanting to be taught to be a fool and only having fun. [[ForgoneConclusion Well...]]

* {{Hypocrite}}: Karo in subverted form; she only turns against The Wave when she chooses to not wear the uniform (white shirt) everyone in The Wave agreed on wearing, because of a comment from her mother, and thus starts see how The Wave treats non-members. It's likely she would not have turned against them if she had worn the uniform.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The most common complaint about the movie is that the ending is much more extreme than the real life event. WordOfGod says the ending was influenced by [[spoiler: the Emsdetten school shooting in 2006, when the film was scripted, where a 18-year old bullying victim wounded 22 people and killed himself. In 2009, a year after the films release the Winnenden school shooting was perpetrated by another loner, this time a 17-year old boy with depression. His name?]]. [[HarsherInHindsight Tim]].

** When Bomber and Kevin (german Malfoy) skate and unintentionally get's Karo's brother to join the Wave, the song playing at the skate ring is ''Everything Is Under Control'', a song about a movement getting control over people.

** When the two guys talk about how the youth of today is aimless, the song in the background is sung from the perspective of a bored youth who is aimless and dangerous.

** To American audiences, it might seem odd that high school students casually address their teachers by their given name, whereas the teachers address each other as "Herr/Frau [surname]." This is actually quite common in German schools, and indeed in many professions, coworkers don't address each other by given names.
