* ThreeDMovie: Murdock gets to watch one, along with the other inhabitants of the psych ward he's in. [[spoiler:That 3D is really damn realistic, what with the Humvee smashing through the wall and dragging in Murdock. The 3-D glasses also make it look like they're really being shot at.]]

{{Badass}}: The entire team because they are soldiers. team, of course:
** Hannibal is an extremely skilled fighter, but even that pales in comparison to his keen intellect and his ability to come up with fool-proof plans at the drop of a hat.
** Face is a career soldier and a crack shot.
** Barracus is a mountain of a man, and by far the most lethal in hand-to-hand combat.
** Though not much of a fighter, Murdock is a wizard at the controls of any flying vehicle, and is more than capable of making them do the impossible.
** Brock Pike as well, despite Hannibal's scorn for the man. He is consistently the only real threat to the A-Team, always seeing through their plans and very nearly foiling them at every turn, most notably when he [[spoiler:blows up the A-Team's tanker, and their plan, with a rocket launcher]]. He's also no slouch in the combat department: [[spoiler:he out-shoots Face and was only taken out when Barracus blindsided him and engaged him in CQC.]]



** Pike also, villain or not. He [[spoiler:nearly kills the A-Team by catching on to what they're doing and wrecks the plan with a rocket launcher.]]

* ButThisIsRidiculous: Lampshaded constantly, often annoying Baracus, Face, or Sosa, and the reason why and how [[spoiler:Lynch]] breaks them out of prison.

** While looking at AC-130 camera footage, [[spoiler:Lynch]] exclaims "It's just like [[ModernWarfare Call of Duty]]!" Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare featured a section where the player controls the weapons on an AC-130U "Spooky" gunship. The audience sees only a glimpse of what the antagonist is seeing, but it does indeed resemble that section. Also noting that the Gunship's call sign is [[SupremeCommander2 Broadsword]].

* ATeamFiring: While there is still a ''lot'' of gunfire, many people - random {{mook}} soldiers and main characters alike - actually do get shot, [[CreatorBacklash which B.A.'s TV portrayer Mr. T found it unacceptable in The A-Team media]]. Since this A-Team actually shoots to kill it isn't as extreme an example of the original TropeNamer.

* LegacyCharacter[=/=]NoNameGiven: The CIA agent is only referred to as "[[MrSmith Mr. Lynch]]", an obvious pseudonym commonly used by the CIA. Other characters joke about this by asking Mr. Lynch if he's related to the other Lynches they met in the past. Also qualifies as a MythologyGag, the Army Colonel chasing the A Team in the original series was named Lynch.
