* NatureVsNurture: Because of the unexpected birth of twins, the experiment was ended and the mother/children split up. Julius ended up with one of the scientists who genuinely raised the boy to be a genius bodybuilder ("the Good") in an isolated environment void of cultural distractions. Vincent was left abandoned to an orphanage, without any mentor or guidance to grow up, and learned to cheat and lie his way through life ("the Bad") while living a hedonistic unhealthy lifestyle. The argument would be how much did genetics already establish which twin was Good or Bad, and how much did they way they grew up? Lampshaded by Julius, who realizes he had the more coddled childhood and condemns Dr. Traven for pre-judging Vincent to a harsher life.
-->I was taken to a beautiful island, protected, educated, loved, given every opportunity to grow, to dream, to create. But you had none of that. You had ''nobody.'' Nobody to love you, nobody to trust you, nobody to encourage you. All life taught you was that the only person you could count on was yourself.

* TwinTelepathy: Naturally. The Twins are even in constant Synchronization, much to Vincent's initial annoyance.
* WeNamedTheMonkeyJack: Vincent named his beloved cat Julius, but long before finding out about his brother. It qualifies, though, in that it is another example of the Twins being on the same wavelength, even if they were unaware of it.

-->'''Mitchell Traven''': The embryo ''did'' split in two, but it didn't split equally. All the purity and strength went into Julius. All the crap that was left over went into what you see in the mirror every morning.
