* {{Badass}}: Aurelius. Though he also has shades of ActionSurvivor.
** BadassGrandpa: Ambrosinus is pretty spry for an elderly man, he pulls off Houdini tricks, handles some mooks and even [[spoiler:defeats Vortgyn on his own.]]

* 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.



* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/ColinFirth, best known for his romantic comedy and drama roles, as a ancient Roman swashbuckler. Though he ''does'' get reduced to the stammering love interest thanks to Mira.
