* AppealToWorseProblems: One of the targets does this when he mentions that compared to the reaction of the Munich massacre, nobody says anything about the children killed in Israeli attacks against Palestine.

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Ephraim will not break bread with Avner, indicating that Avner and his whole team were disavowed and considered expendable, and most of them died for nothing. In addition, Avner and his team were already told in the beginning how far out on the edge they'd be, with no support or backing from Israel beyond funds and target profiles. Ephraim refusing to break bread with a former citizen and soldier, even under Avner's olive branch of sharing Jewish heritage, is him saying he doesn't even consider Avner a Jew [[BadassIsraeli like he is]]. The homeland Avner sacrificed almost everything for has rebuked him completely.]]

** During the assassination of the third target by planting a bomb underneath the mattress of his hotel's room, the bomb also blows the two adjacent rooms, one of them had a [[InsatiableNewlyweds couple of newlyweds]] on their honeymoon, when Avner rushes to help them we see them completely naked and heavily bleeding.

* MultinationalTeam: All of the squad are Israeli citizens, but all of them except Avner are ''olim''-- Jewish immigrants to Israel from elsewhere--Steve is South African, Robert is Belgian, Hans is German, and Carl is also probably German but it is never established

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: The depictions of the Olympic massacre and the assassinations are closely based on historical fact. The rest is either based on "Avner's" memoirs, the accuracy and even authenticity of which are disputed to this day, or is otherwise total fiction[[note]]Given the intense illegality of the supposed Israeli assassinations, it's incredibly likely that Israel will never admit to them, assuming they did happen. It's also likely that there are no actual records of any such operation[[/note]].

* NotSoDifferent: Of two kinds. The first is that all militants and spies are cut from the same cloth, all fighting for their own idea of good. The second is how vengeance begets more vengeance. When they kill the woman assassin, they are taking vengeance for her taking vengeance on them, for taking vengeance for the Munich killings, which were the vengeance for prior actions.
