* TheAllSolvingHammer: At first Hartman calmly tells [[spoiler: Pyle to place the weapon on the deck and step away]]. When Pyle doesn't comply, Hartman reverts to his default method of persuasion. The fact that Hartman's solution to [[spoiler: a clearly deranged recruit pointing a loaded rifle at him is to insult him]] seems to imply that he had gotten it in his head that he could solve any problem by yelling at it. Partially TruthInTelevision; while this is standard procedure in the military, and while it's taught that nine times out of ten a show of strong force will cause a person to back down, there is a world of difference between a show of force and needlessly insulting and antagonizing a seriously disturbed man with a loaded gun. Someone having a massive mental breakdown with a loaded gun is ''not'' what standard procedure is designed for.

* LittleMissBadass: [[spoiler: The sniper. Deconstructed in that, once the marines get their shit together, it doesn't really take a whole lot for them to turn the tables on her. Having said that, Rafterman shoots her with an entire clip and she's still not dead; nor does she beg for mercy, but stares them down and tells them to finish her off.]]

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Just about anything Hartman does, but special mention goes to the footlocker scene, where he reacts to the presence of a jelly doughnut ("What is that?"..."What the fuck is that?!"..."WHAT IS THAT, PRIVATE PYLE!?") like he's watching some horrifyingly disgusting shock video.

* NWordPriveleges: Animal Mother and 8-Ball are VitriolicBestBuds, with Mother casually tossing around some obscenely-racist insults. [[spoiler: Animal Mother becomes almost deranged when 8-Ball is shot and flatly refuses to leave him behind, practically destroying a city block with his M60 in his rescue attempt.]]

* MilesGloriosus: Joker often brags about his “killer instincts” (though most, if not all of that is probably meant to be deliberately ironic) and, once in Vietnam, of his previous combat experience, claiming to be a hardened veteran to the other correspondents. He maintains it in combat as long as all is going well, but turns into a stuttering wreck when he gets really scared. The actual veterans of Cowboy’s platoon get progressively less impressed with him. When they encounter the sniper, Cowboy (his best friend) has to very pointedly tell him to shut the ''fuck'' up, and Animal Mother looks like he’s considering shooting Joker himself.
