* {{Badass}}: The rebels are replete with badasses, of course. Vidal is an inverted evil badass. And Mercedes is a more understated but no less determined badass when her moment to shine comes.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: in RealLife, fighting the rebel guerrillas was the job of the Guardia Civil -the guys in green uniforms and [[NiceHat tricornes]] seen in the train wreck scene- but Vidal and his underlings belong to the Policía Armada. Del Toro must have thought that the grey police uniform, with its stronger [[PuttingOnTheReich Fascist flavour]], was more appropriate for the BigBad than the GC green.

* FoodChains: Don't eat the food on the table means, ''don't eat the food on the table''. It can be explained, though, that Ofelia likely had had a chance to eat fresh fruit for a long while. Also, she had been sent to bed without supper, so was more hungry than usual.

** [[spoiler:Dr. Ferraro]]'s last words are fairly memorable as well:

** [[spoiler:Dr. Ferraro]]'s Ferreiro]]'s last words are fairly memorable as well:



* ICannotSelfTerminate: Vidal orders Dr. Ferraro to treat the wounds of a rebel he is torturing so that he can be tortured some more. The man begs Dr. Ferraro to kill him, and Ferraro obliges by giving a lethal injection.

* InvertedTrope: According to WordOfGod, in this movie, set in Falangist Spain, it's courageous ''dis''obedience, rather than blind obedience, that is the true virtue. This is nearly the opposite of pretty much any normal fairy-tale. Dr. Ferraro gets a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Reason You Suck]] line aimed at Vidal to this effect.

* MercyKill: Dr. Ferraro kills a wounded rebel soldier at his insistence, to spare him from more torture.

* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: A downplayed example, but Fernando Tielve and Íñigo Garcés (Carlos and Jaime from ''Film/TheDevilsBackbone'') appear in this film as Republican partisans. Per WordOfGod, they actually ''are'' Carlos and Jaime, revealing they survived the ending of that film. [[KillEmAll Needless to say]], they don't survive this one.
