* BadassIsraeli: This applies to varying degrees to all members of the assassination squad. Avner and Steve are both ex-Mossad while the rest of the squad make up for in guile and viciousness what they lack in military experience.

** The young member of the [=PLO=] group who has a conversation with Avner, when both their groups accidentally end up sharing a safehouse together. He lays out his case to Avner very simply: "[[MeaningfulEcho Nothing is more important than home]]". [[Spoiler: He is then gunned down in the street right in front of Avner, who is visibly horrified]].

* AffablyEvil: Quite a few of the targets are this, which makes them far more human to the audience. Most notable is the man who politely chats with Avner and offers him some sleeping pills just before Avner blows up his hotel room.

* PayEvilUntoEvil: When Avner cover up the bloody, exposed corpse of the female assassin with her robe, Hans tells him "Leave it" and pulls her robe open again, as if to make her death as humiliating as possible.[[note]]Also a CallBack to how Carl was likewise naked when they found him.[[/note]]

* MenAreTheExpendableGender: In-universe, [[spoiler:Carl's assassin]] has no redeeming qualities (minus [[PetTheDog her cat]]), compared with the first two targets (see ItGetsEasier above) but somehow her death seems more morally dubious and distressing than the other deaths to several of the agents.

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: The Dutch assassin (called Jeanette in the credits) who tries to [[DistractedByTheSexy distract with her sexy]] the Mossad agents. She pulls open her robe, beneath which she's naked, and immediately gets shot in the chest and throat. Rather than be blown backwards or cry out in pain, she stumbles vaguely around her houseboat while the agents disassemble their one-use weapons, [[PetTheDog gives her cat a hug]], then sits down in a chair, and just wheezes horribly while blood finally starts to pour out of her wounds. Then Hans finishes her off with a headshot.
