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 )

**GoodShepherd: His {{foil}} is another priest who sympathises with the Avengers and gives them his blessings.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* NeverFoundTheBody: Valerka causes an explosion right in front of Ovechkin and then runs to get the documents, screaming that Ovechkin has been killed to distract the guards. But nobody bothers to check. In the third film, a young boy reveals that the man who pays him to test the museum's security has a distinctive tic, which tips Valerka that Ovechkin is alive.

* VillainBall: In the second film, Valerka disguises himself and befriends Staff Captain Ovechkin in order to get the code for a safe. However, it turns out that Ovechkin has figured out who Valerka is and was merely playing along. But then why does he reveal the code seconds before trying to arrest Valerka? He also lets Valerka play a last game of pool with him, not realizing that Valerka has replaced one of the balls with an identical bomb.
