* ArtisticLicenseReligion: [[FridgeBrilliance In-universe:]] Marcus speculates that the Nazis want the Ark because "an army that carried the Ark before it is invincible." In the Bible, every time the army of Israel carried the Ark into battle without God's specific direction to do so, they were ''soundly'' trounced and usually lost the Ark as well. For the capturing nation, at best, it would remain inert. At worst... well, let's just say it was usually hastily returned, often with a request to please ask the Lord to stop smiting them now. Although Hitler ''did'' say several things in real life indicating that he believed he was specifically directed by God to take over the world. Whether it was a lie he used to motivate his followers or [[TautologicalTemplar he actually believed it]] is up for debate. Belloq also made the fatal mistake of getting all the ritual gear right but missing the multiple clear warnings ''not to look in it''.

** The Nazi that he fights during the truck chase qualifies as well - he sends all his mooks first to soften Indy up, before sneaking over the top of the truck so Indy doesn't see him coming, and then he repeatedly targets the bullet wound in Indy's arm.

** Again, the Nazis also seem to miss that as the avowed enemies of the Jews that they might invoke the wrong kind of attention--even if they believe in the same God (which is doubtful in many Nazis' case).
