* BloodlessCarnage: The movie seems to go out of its way to avoid showing blood being spilled, including some rather ugly JumpCuts to other characters reacting to a death when a blow is hit, ''then'' back to the original (now dead) character.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[{{Series/GameOfThrones}} Jojen Reed]] is Romulus Augustulus. It's also [[HilariousInHindsight really funny]] when you recognize [[{{Series/GameOfThrones}} Ser Jorah Mormont]] as his dad. [[HilariousInHindsight Even more funny]] when you realize that one of his bodyguards is [[{{Series/GameOfThrones}} Xaro Xhohan Daxos]].
** General Aurelius is none other than [[{{Film/TheKingsSpeech}} King George VI]].
** [[{{Film/Gandhi}} The Mahatma]] is Ambrosinus, aka Merlin.
** [[{{Series/Rome}} Lucius Vorenus]] has gone native as the Gaul Wulfia. His boss is [[{{Film/ChildrenOfMen}} Syd]].
** [[{{Film/BrideAndPrejudice}} Lalita]] knows how to kick ass as the warrior woman Mira.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Seems to be superstition, legends, and old cults, and maybe just a little bit of good luck, Romulus's mentor Ambrosinus is revealed to be [[spoiler: {{Merlin}} in the last few minutes of the movie. Then again, his only magical act seems to be that he hasn't aged.]]
