** You can see Creator/WarrenEllis' fingerprints all over the script in the form of [[CloudCuckoolander Marvin Boggs]] - an [[CrazyAwesome utterly lethal]] and brilliant yet batshit insane drug-addled conspiracy freak ''[[TheCuckoolanderWasRight who is right about EVERY SINGLE ONE]] [[ProperlyParanoid of his paranoid freakouts.]]'' All that's missing is some cool tattoos, smoking, and some [[NanoMachines nanotech]] implants and you'd have every single one of Ellis' "heroes" crammed into Creator/JohnMalkovich. Who is the [[EnsembleDarkHorse most memorable part]] of all the awesome things around him.

* NotMyDriver: [[spoiler: The Vice President and two Secret Service Agents finally make it to a limo that gets away from the attack... only for Frank Moses to turn around in the driver's seat and taser them all. This is a particularly good example, because GenreSavvy viewers may have been expecting the ''earlier'' Service limo to be Moses, except Ivan blew that one up too.]]

* AMatchMadeInStockholm: Frank and Sara. Not as many unfortunate implications as usual, as Frank is only dragging Sara along with him against her will to keep her from being killed, which is what leads to them starting a relationship.
** Really their relationship had already started, with the phone calls, the reading the same books, and the intent to meet up soon. The kidnapping actually threatened to deepsix the burgeoning relationship, until Sarah realized it was all for real and got into it.
