* [[NotUsingTheZWord Not Using the G Word]]: Gabriel never actually says "God" when speaking of his estranged boss in conversation.

* [[NotUsingTheZWord Not Using the G Word]]: Gabriel never actually says "God" when speaking of his estranged boss in conversation. He and other angels just refer to Him as "the boss". Thomas breaks the ice when asking Gabriel why he won't bring his frustrations up to God.

* FateWorseThanDeath: Humans not being able to go to {{Heaven}} (because of the war going on among the angels) after they die could count. Not to mention Gabriel makes it clear that his henchmen are just "dying slower." Despite their mobility, they're probably still suffering from whatever was killing them in the first place.

* FateWorseThanDeath: When Lucifer tells Thomas and Catherine he wants them to "come home with me", then claims not coming with him will be worse than any fate they could imagine. Neither buy it for a second.

The first film, ''The Prophecy'' (released in 1995), tells the story of the ArchangelGabriel (Creator/ChristopherWalken), who's angry that {{God}} loves humans (or "[[FantasticRacism talking monkeys]]," as Gabriel likes to call them) more than angels. Gabriel comes to Earth in search of the evil soul of Colonel Hawthorne, a deceased UsefulNotes/KoreanWar veteran, in order to gain an advantage in a war being fought in {{Heaven}}. Another angel, Simon (Eric Stoltz), intercepts Hawthorne's soul and hides it in the body of a young Native American girl named Mary (Moriah Shining Dove Snyder). Now it's up to Thomas Daggett (Elias Koteas), a police detective who once aspired to be a priest but lost his faith in God years ago, and Catherine (Virginia Madsen), Mary's schoolteacher, to protect Mary before Gabriel gets to her. Creator/ViggoMortensen co-stars as [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]].

* BlindIdiotTranslation: The movies treat "nephilim" as a singular. In reality, it is the plural form of Hebrew ''naphil'' (a fallen one/giant).

* HyperactiveMetabolism: In order to fuel their immense strength and regenerative powers, angels and Nephilim both have to consume massive amounts of sugars, carbohydrates and proteins. This is very prevalent in ''The Ascent''. After coming back from the dead, Danyael ends up scarfing down a bag of a dozen mixed donuts. Zophael, the angel pursuing Danyael, notes that "Spontaneous tissue regeneration tends to do that." He and Gabriel both show an inclination for donuts with sprinkles on them.

** In various apocryphal texts that deal with the Nephilim, it is stated that they have massive appetites. Nephilim, like Hiwa and Hiya, were said to have consumed huge amounts of meat and other sacrificial foods given to them because their mighty feats of strength and all the people they killed was taxing. It got to the point that the twin Nephilim eventually turned to cannibalism, eating humans, other Nephilim and even angels to fuel their bodies.

* AnimalMotifs: Birds are used to symbolize the angels. For example, Gabriel perches on a bench and looks ''exactly'' like a bird in silhouette. Lucifer explodes into crows when departing early in the second film. Pyriel actually lunches at Danyael like a bird of prey. Gabriel [[spoiler:explodes into doves when departing at the end of the third film]].
