* SelfServingMemory: After dueling each other for nearly 15 years, Feraud has long forgotten the original cause of his quarrel with d'Hubert (who hasn't), which was Feraud feeling insulted when d'Hubert arrested him for another duel while Feraud was enjoying the company of a female host at her salon. When he's reminded of this by d'Hubert through an intermediate, he actually rewrites his own memory to make d'Hubert an outspoken anti-Bonapartist.

* BackToBackBadasses: [[PlayingWithATrope Enforced and subverted]] when the fifth duel is interrupted by Cussacks amid the snowy forests of western Russia. d'Hubert and Feraud abandon their duel and use their pistols to kill and/or route the Cussacks, creating one instance where they shoot the same enemy with opposite arms thereby spreading their backs against one-another. After they successfully route the Cussacks and agree to duel later, d'Hubert offers Feraud some liquor to celebrate their collaborative success, but Feraud almost completely ignores it.
