* {{Anti-Villain}}: Urgayle ([[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains type IV]]) is a pretty decent guy outside of training. And even when he's making his recruits' lives hell, [[PunchClockVillain it's what they pay him to do]].

* ArtisticLicenseStatistics: Having 100% of a test set of 1 woman undergoing SEAL training pass or fail wouldn't prove anything. Especially since most men who apply for said training also fail.

* ArtisticLicenseBasicTraining / ArtisticLicenseStatistics: In an attempt to see if women can serve in combat duty, the [=DoD=] lets one woman try SEAL training. The course, as stated in the movie, has a 60% failure rate, meaning you'd need a sample size of at least three to even pretend you've got a realistic bearing.

** TruthInTelevision: SERE[[note]]Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape[[/note]] school is universally reviled by everyone that goes through it ''and'' everyone that runs it, specifically because normal, reasonable circumstances are thrown out. The only rules are: nothing sexual, and the trainee can't be ''killed''. Everything else is fair game. It messes with the trainees' heads (the thought that "They can't be allowed to do this" takes a while to go away), and the trainers' heads (much like the Stanford Prison Experiment, being given absolute control over another human being eventually results in some pretty horrendous behaviour).

* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: InUniverse. Jordan points out that she and Royce entered the Navy at the same time, but he's far more decorated. He counters that that's just because he "got lucky during the Gulf War," but she says that's the whole point.
-->'''Jordan:''' Operational experience is a key to advancement. Yet anyone with tits can't be on a sub, can't be a SEAL...

* BadassBoast: After one of the new recruits idiotically decides to laugh during Command Master Chief Urgayle's opening speech, the latter walks up to the recruit and responds with a boast where he basically compares himself to God.
-->'''Urgayle:''' The ebb and flow of the Atlantic tides, the drift of the continents, the very position of the sun along its ecliptic. THESE are just a FEW of the things I control in my world! Is that clear?
