* PunchClockHeroes: Guess who? Kelly and co. actually liberate a French town from the Nazis, and the town is jubilant. Of course, they were really just after the gold the Nazis stored in the town's bank.
* PunchClockVillain: Kelly points out the last SS tank crew they can't knock out are simply guarding the aforementioned bank like they were told to, and may not actually know what's ''in'' it. [[spoiler: Turns out the Germans are just as disillusioned with the war as the heroes are, and it doesn't take a whole lot of convincing to get the German tank commander to turn his gun around and blow open the bank so he and his men can get in on the action.]]

*NominalHero: Kelly and his crew are motivated purely by opportunistic self-interest, and participate in the events of the film only for a chance to line their pockets. While they don't do anything particularly evil, they also exhibit nothing resembling selfless heroic behavior, either. Thus they are either "hero in name only" or a bunch of {{Villain Protagonist}}s.
