The main heroes of the trilogy are a quartet of [[RedOctober Russian Civil War era]] teenagers who become ChildSoldiers and then Cheka agents: the bold straight arrow [[TheHero hero]] Danka, his sister [[TheChick Ksanka]], their [[TheSmartGuy smart-aleck buddy]] Valerka and a [[TheLancer roguish Roma boy]] named Yashka. Their adventures start when Danka has to avenge his father's death at the hands of a bandit warlord; it quickly brings them into fighting the Russian Civil War first against bandits and anarchists, then against the Whites. After the war is over, the now (barely) adult Avengers become Cheka agents.

Added DiffLines:

* TheBaroness: A bizzare version in ''Crown.'' Here, Ksanka is an embodient of this trope: young, attractive, black leather-clad Chekist lady with bossy attitude, but since it's a Soviet film, she is one of good guys.


Added DiffLines:

* WorthyOpponent: Rarely for a Soviet movie, a few Whites in the second part are portrayed not as straightforwar villains, but as well-intentioned but misguided men.

* LeParkour: Danka is an acrobat, but some of his chase scenes look very much like parkour moves (or something out of AssassinsCreed )

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Bubba Kastorsky acts like a loon when arrested by Kudasov, annoying him with bad jokes and non sequiturs and dispelling any suspicion that he is smart enough to work as a Red spy.
