** Once he becomes "Satan," David Boreanaz loses all sense of seriousness or subtlety.
** Dennis Hopper any time he's on screen.

* ChekhovsGun: Interestingly enough, the cap gun that Pestilence finds when he and Famine are disposing of Lily and Jimmy's bodies.



* ContrivedCoincidence: The man who killed Luc's father just happens to be [[spoiler: the father of the man Jimmy killed]]

* ContrivedCoincidence: The man who killed Luc's father just happens to be [[spoiler: the father of the man Jimmy killed]]killed]].
** Pestilence and Famine just happen to dump come across and dump Lily and Jimmy's bodies in the exact refrigerator that Famine's mother used to lock him in.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: As bad as they all are, most of Luc's gang has moments of this throughout the film (which seem to conflict with earlier and later actions they take) except for Luc himself.
** Famine and War are clearly disturbed (and {{Squick}}ed) when Lola cuts out Lily's eyes (Pestilence seems somewhat nonplussed, or he just doesn't care).
** War is also {{squick}}ed when Luc cuts out Jimmy's heart.
** Lola and Famine (The former more so) seem disturbed by the murder of the witnesses in the Church. In Lola's case, she seems disturbed by Luc's action beyond his revenge against Mosses ([[spoiler: who murdered his father]]).
* EvilIsPetty: A few examples of this in the film:
** Famine wants revenge (and thereby takes part in Luc's plot) because his tribal status was rejected (It's hinted this was because he's a 'half-breed').
** It's implied the Lily was targeted not only because of her blue eyes (which were necessary for Luc's plot) but also jealousy on Luc's part; a flash back reveals that since age 12, he had desires towards Lily.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: Easy to miss in most examples, but there's foreshadowing throughout the film that Luc's plot is doomed to fail.
** Right after Lola gets Lily's eyes ({{ItMakesSenseInContext}}), there's a quick flash of Lola in the hearse as the sunrise occurs, with bloody tears indicating she's lost her powers.
** Around the same time, Lola also sees the Rave-n-Fest massacre, and even sees the giant Crow and tarp falling to the floor.
** Just before he is hanged, Jimmy tells Luc that he's [[spoiler: going to die - he does]].



* MarkOfTheBeast: Luc get's this on the upper right of his chest after he cut's out Jimmy's heart and Lola performs a spell.



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Jimmy says this word for word after uncovering Lily's body following his revival by the Crow.



* WaifFu: Edward Furlong beating up David Boreanaz and UFC fighter Tito Ortiz probably counts as a male version of this

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Flashbacks show that Luc and Jimmy were friends while in prison together, even confiding in each other at least once.

* LighterAndSofter: Granted, it's still a pretty dark film overall, but compared with the CrapsackWorld of the first two films, and the still fairly gritty ''Salvation'', this film has a noticeably more tongue-in-cheek feel.

Added DiffLines:



Added DiffLines:

* DeathSeeker: Jimmy tries to kill himself again when he comes back and begs Tanner to do it later on.


Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: Luc's father was a pastor who was killed for the donations he had received. This caused him to hate God.
** Famine's mother was [[AbusiveParents abusive]] and locked him in a fridge when he misbehaved.


Added DiffLines:

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: Death.]] It still takes a knife to finish him off.


Added DiffLines:

* MenAreTheExpendableGender: Lola survives the movie while the Four Horseman don't. This verges into KarmaHoudini territory since she was the one to cut Lily's eyes out.


Added DiffLines:

* TapOnTheHead: Averted. Famine dies from getting smacked over the head with a baseball bat.

This film is generally regarded to be the worst in the franchise; Norman Partridge even refused to let Miramax send him a DVD. However, to some it manages to be ridiculous enough to loop back into SoBadItsGood territory.
