* MagicalPlasticSurgery: Averted. Wulfgar goes to a plastic surgeon to alter his face after the French authorities get his picture, but the changes are not that major -- he's able to sneak into the United States with a fake passport, but he's still recognizable enough that A.T.A.C. finds out that he did shortly afterwards and he depends on Shakka for legwork.

** Hartman tells [=DaSilva=] that he went through the trouble of studying the background of each person on the anti-terrorist unit, and he says that Wulfgar will do the same. Turns out that he's mostly right. The only thing he got wrong is that Wulfgar has ''Shakka'' do the homework instead of doing it himself.

Turns out that he's mostly right. The only thing he got wrong is that Wulfgar has ''Shakka'' do the homework instead of doing it himself. He also demonstrates this by insulting [=DaSilva=] in a way that makes him reach his RageBreakingPoint and almost storm out of the organization (by mentioning he's divorced) -- on the climax, [=DaSilva=] uses a recording of Hartman where he talks about Shakka's profile and insults her in a way that makes Shakka abandon the HumanShield group to try to kill [=DaSilva=] in a rage, and this allows Fox to snipe her in the head.

* TheSociopath: Wulfgar, Wulfgar, '''WULFGAR'''. Where do we even begin? When he takes over the Staten Island tram on the climax, he refuses to even let kids go (a regular sign of good will by hostage takers), instead pointing out the gun he's carrying and telling [=DaSilva=] that if his demands are not obeyed, he will kill the kids ''and'' go "blame [=DaSilva=] for this!".

to:

* TerroristsWithoutACause: Wulgar in a nutshell--he's a "for-hire" mercenary, so ruthless [[EvenEvilHasStandards that other groups start to stay away from him]]. So the best way to solve this? Go to New York and terrorize it to its knees in order to attract employers.

His EstablishingCharacterMoment is blowing up a restaurant by means of a bomb concealed in a baby carriage.

* TheWorldsExpertOnGettingKilled: Hartman, he who trains the strike force and constantly warns about Wufgar's immense preparedness, even warning that if facing off against him or his allies, the best way to survive is to draw a gun and kill them '''immediately'''. He gets blind-sided by Shaka when he's getting ready to get lunch and shot in the head before he can even blink.

* GenreSavvy: Hartman. There's a reason he's the instructor for the anti-terrorist unit.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: ''So very much'' in Wulfgar's case. Underestimating him will get not only yourself killed, but also anybody unlucky enough to be in the general vicinity.

* BlondeGuysAreEvil: Well, really just Wulfgar, at least after he gets a face-lift. Before the lift, he had brownish hair.
