* AnachronismStew: Despite many accurate depictions of things other Japanese war films get wrong, t5he film has modern Honda trucks show up in a few scenes, and most egregiously in a scene with American military strategists discussing the Zero, a black pilot is seen. At the time the film takes place, African Americans were not allowed to serve in desegregated units.

*StrangledByTheRedString: Can be considered a ''deconstruction'' of this trope as Mizushima and Hamada's friendship is ultimately torn apart by the love triangle, and [[spoiler: in the end only Mizushima is alive out of the three]].
