** Kingpin and Roshi are each a CorruptCorporateExecutive and are the ManBehindTheMan. Although unlike Kingpin, Roshi does not get involved in a fight with Elektra, being too busy leading The Hand from Japan. He also lacks any personal vendetta with Elektra that Kingpin did with murdering Matt's father.

* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Though Elektra first appeared in ''Daredevil'', the film explores her own story that is similar yet different from Matt's. Both are about a character who wears red who's life went downhill after a parent's death. Matt was self taught in his fighting by "watching" his father and using his senses since he was 12. Elektra, before her death, was taught by a different sensei each year since she was 5 and developed her powers as part of her ressurection as an adult. Both are still haunted by their parents' deaths and learn though a seemingly unrelated situation involving a mercenaries and protecting a parent and daughter from them who the killer is. Matt failed to save Elektra and her father, while Elektra only barely saved Abby with those same mystical abilities. Matt decided Wilson Fisk wasn't worth killing, [[spoiler:Elektra doesn't give Kirigi the same treatment as she had become a professional assassin instead of a hero]].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Roshi. Giving orders from a boardroom. It comes across that the Hand is TheMafia or {{Yakuza}} and not just an evil organization

* WellDoneSonGuy: There is a lot of needing fathers approval subtext going on in the movie. Elektra on some level seems to want Sticks approval. Kirigi seeks his father's, Roshi, approval.

* YouHaveFailedMe: Apparently all Hand members are supposed to kill themselves if they failed
