* FaceHeelTurn: Not so much a turn as a reveal. Shaw's regiment joins Colonel Montgomery's regiment for a foraging mission. As Montgomery conceived the idea of a colored Union regiment, Shaw (and the viewers) assume he's progressive and feeling all men are equal. It's soon revealed that Montgomery is extremely racist, and really only sees the merit of a colored regiment as cheap cannon fodder.

* InfantImmortality: Averted in the aftermath of Antietam, with a cut to the body of a dead drummer boy. Later deliberately invoked right before the advance on Fort Wagner; Forbes dismisses the drummer boys - the youngest members of the regiment - to spare them from the ensuing slaughter. Like most things shown in the film, this really happened.[[note]]The drummer boys weer to be stretcher barons during the actual fighting.[[/note]]

* BadassArmy: The 54th Regiment turns into this eventually, and are quite a deadly force to be reckoned with when they first engage in Confederate forces. They even earn respect from other Union troops who earlier mocked them prior to the assault on Fort Wagner.

* TookALevelInBadass: Thomas becomes quite the efficient killer. In Fort Wagner, he's singlehandedly taking out Confederate soldiers, and thanks to being wounded, is one of the few to ''survive'' the onslaught.
