* FacingTheBulletsOneLiner: Sophie and Hans each give one out. [[spoiler: After the death sentences are handed out by the KangarooCourt, Sophie tells Judge Freisler "You will soon stand where we stand now"[[note]]Freisler didn't live long enough to be tried--he was killed in a US bombing raid[[/note]], and in one of the final scenes, just before the guillotine's blade severs his head, Hans yells "Es lebe die Freiheit!" (Long live freedom!)]]

** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in Else's case since the entire film is told through Sophie's POV. If Else was a Gestapo mole, Sophie would've had no way of finding this out in the time she had left.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Judge Freisler and Investigator Mohr are probably best know to English-speaking audiences as [[Film/{{Downfall}} General Monhke and Walther Hewel]], respectively. Julia Jentsch also briefly appeared in the first scene of ''Film/{{Downfall}}'' as one of the secretarial applicants, although audiences will most likely recognise her from her role in ''Film/TheEdukators''.

* KangarooCourt: Complete with an entirely cardboard defence, and presided over by the [[ThoseWackyNazis wackiest, shrillest, most fanatical Nazi]] they could get their hands on.
* KarmaHoudini: Robert Mohr was briefly interned by the French in 1947, but ultimately never stood trial for his activities as a member of the Gestapo, and died a free, [[NaziGrandpa an old man in 1977]].

* RealityIsUnrealistic: You might think that actor Andre Hennicke as Roland Friesler is overracting. He isn't. We have film footage of the RealLife Friesler at some of his [[KangarooCourt show trials]] where Friesler makes Hennicke look positively subdued.
