* StockQuotes: The film's chosen poetry snippet is the last few lines of "Aed Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven" by [[Creator/WilliamButlerYeats Yeats]]:
-->''But I, being poor, have only my dreams;\\
I have spread my dreams under your feet;\\
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.''

* SteelEardrums: Guns go off right next to characters' heads repeatedly. This never leads to any real consequences.

* TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes: The Tetragrammaton Clerics are tasked with rooting out and apprehending or killing Sense Offenders. Preston, stated as being one of the best Clerics, fails to realize that [[spoiler: his entire family, both partners, and his boss are all Sense Offenders]]. It's clear that his reputation is based on A) his combat skills, and B) his contraband-sniffing skills, rather than his ability to '''actually find the people he's supposed to be hunting'''.

Though it could also be that he is better at spotting sense offending in strangers.

* {{Dystopia}}: Libria is basically ''1984'' [[XMeetsY with Kung Fu]]. Emotion is {{Thoughtcrime}}, all citizens are required to take psychiatric medication to suppress it, and if people resist then the State employs elite supersoldiers to annihilate all the thought-criminals.

** GunKata: XanatosSpeedChess [[RecycledInSpace with]] [[MoreDakka guns]]. However, Preston and [[spoiler: [=DuPont=]]] are the only ones we see doing any actual GunKata: Partridge is deliberately letting Preston do all the work, Brandt's only on-screen shooting is with an assault rifle, and none of the other Clerics bother.

* UnbuiltTrope: The film was released in 2002, about a decade before the teenage dystopia genre took off thanks to work like ''TheHungerGames'', and it can also come across as a subversion of many of the oft-mocked cliches present in those works.
