Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: The Americans introduce themselves as "Kentucky Irregulars"; something that did not make sense to most in an American audience but would be more likely to make sense to Europeans due to differences in terminology. Irregulars are military personnel who are not part of the military proper, referring to militia, auxiliaries and other elements. The "Kentucky Irregulars" are the Kentucky National Guard. (For non-Americans, National Guard refers to the military forces that belong to the individual states rather than to the Federal Government.) Meanwhile, in colonial times (such as when the British Empire held sway in the Americas), Kentucky was a region known as a very fertile hunting ground. Lo and behold, the Kentucky National Guard, showing up to hunt dragons.

* ApocalypticLog: As the introducing voice over explains what happened after the first dragon awakens, we see a newspaper montage covering different stages of the dragon apocalypse, from the first scientific articles to the war itself. A nib pen, presumably Quinn's, scratches out a
message to his adopted son.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Numerous, but most strangely is the fact there seems to be millions of dragons across the entire planet, but only one of them is male.


Added DiffLines:

* SquareCubeLaw: An animal as large as the male dragon would never get airborne, but the designers did attempt to [[ShownTheirWork show their work]] by giving the dragons extremely wide wings even for their size.
