* ArtisticLicenseHistory: It is referred to on a couple of occasions that David Norris is the youngest person elected to Congress at the age of 24. According to the most basic research, there have been three others (Jesse Wharton of Tennessee, William Rufus deVane King of North Carolina, and David W. Dickinson of Tennessee) who have been elected at the age of 24. While that is not conclusive territory for this trope (he might have been 24 years and 8 months, where as those three were 24 years and more than 8 months or the like), one must take into account William C.C. Claiborne, the second U.S. Representative from Tennessee (after AndrewJackson), who, according to some reliable sources, was as young as 22 years of age when he was elected and sworn in as a member of the House.

* OpenAndShut: The men of the Adjustment Bureau have the power to open any door to any other door, allowing them to close in on any target rather swiftly. This ability is not innate to them but provided by their 1950s-style hats; one of them temporarily gives his hat to the hero so he can beat them at their own game.

* FiveBadBand: The main adjusters:
** BigBad: Thompson, who has the highest authority of the adjusters we see and gives David the biggest emotional thrashing.
** TheDragon: Richardson, the adjuster who encounters David the most, apart from Harry.
** TheEvilGenius: Donaldson, who does research on David and Elise and explains things to Richardson.
** TheBrute: [=McCradey=], who is the most silent and provides an extra set of hands for Richardson.
** TheDarkChick: Harry Mitchell, the most empathetic of the adjusters, who even helps David in the third act.
** BiggerBad: The Chairman, who commands all the Adjusters.

** The New York county map showing David's loss shows the election results is dominated by red, which is the media's traditional designator for the Republican party.
*** [[NewerThanTheyThink Which only dates back to the 2000 election.]] Perhaps the story takes place in an alternate universe where the colours have the same meaning as the rest of the world?

** TheChosenOne: Thompson later explains why: he's supposed to run for President later, and Elise a master choreographer. Four more election wins, starting from one encounter, will cause ''both'' of them to achieve their original dreams. By doing neither, and falling for each other, they forfeit their dreams and will live very minimal lives.
