* LargeHam: Guess who. Bruno Ganz practically uses the scenery as his own all-you-can-eat buffet.

* SenselessSacrifice: Mohnke tries to reason with Goebbels about the under-trained Volkssturm he was being supplied with, saying that they have little hope of actually making a difference and it's just wasting German lives.

Goebbels, who of course knows that he isn't coming out of this alive, replies that he doesn't really care.



** The movie focuses on the last days of Hitler as the Soviets close in, and as such, he has some quite epic breakdown moments, especially in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7PmzdINGZk this infamous scene]] where he completely loses it upon finding out that Felix Steiner couldn't muster up enough forces to hold back the Allies.

By all accounts, the staging in the film is quite accurate. Hitler really did freak out upon finding out hearing that Felix neither Wenck nor Steiner couldn't muster up enough forces to hold back would attack, and he really did have a screaming wild-eyed breakdown in which he said that the Allies.war was over and he should have had all his generals shot.

* InsaneTrollLogic: Hitler's level of delusion varies from scene to scene, but in general he'll resort blaming anyone and anything he can for the mess they're in, basically claiming it's ''they'' failed him by following the orders he gave.

** During his most famous rant, he claims that he personally conquered all of Europe, yet all his generals keep failing and betraying him. In short, he takes sole credit for all of Nazi Germany's successes, and blames all its failures on everyone but him.

* ColdWar: Foreshadowed. The Soviet charge all the way to Berlin despite their staggering losses convinces Hitler that they will end up in a massive conflict with the Western powers. He predicts that the Russians will be the victors.

You most likely know it as the source of all those WebVideo/HitlerRants videos where the [[GagSub English subtitles are edited]] to satirize some usually trivial topics. The scene that is used for the Hitler Rants is actually a Hitler freakout that occurs after he learns that neither Wenck's 12th Army nor Army Group Steiner would be coming to the defense of Berlin (in RealLife, both forces were trying only to get west so they could surrender to the (Western) Allies).

It is primarily based on the memoirs of Gertrude "Traudl" Junge, one of UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler's secretaries, and is one of the most accurate portrayals of the last, desperate days of the Third Reich and its effects on Hitler, his closest aides, and ordinary Germans. Junge is played by German actress Alexandra Maria Lara, while Hitler himself is portrayed by Bruno Ganz.
