* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: In ''Insurgent'', Evelyn doesn't look remotely old enough to be Four's mother. Naomi Watts is sixteen years older than Theo James, so their parental relationship in the movie is biologically possible, but the makeup and lighting departments did a damn good job at making her look as old as him, tops.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the early scenes of ''The Divergent Series: Insurgent'', Tris is told that to be a member of Amity means forgiving others and yourself. [[spoiler:At the end of the film, she passes the Amity simulation by declaring that even if no one else forgives her for what she's done, she will forgive herself]].

* RunningGag: In the first movie we have this gem:
--> '''Person:''' You're not gonna shoot me.
--> ''beat''
--> ''Tris shoots him''
** The last time it happens she even adds an exasperated "Why do people keep saying that?".

* TwoPartTrilogy: A lot of readers feel the trilogy is one of these; the difference being that it's the ''third'' book, ''Allegiant'', that seems to feel out of sync with the other two, to its discredit — alternating between two narrators where the first two books were told entirely in Tris's voice, ([[spoiler:Tobias actually concludes the narrative after Tris' death]]) sacrificing the narrative energy of the first two books for a lot of exposition which shouldn't really be necessary at that point. [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/kateaurthur/the-problem-with-divergent-is-allegiant-veronica-roth A piece]] in ''Buzzfeed'' when the first movie adaptation came out called it "listless, anti-climactic, and you really get the sense that Roth didn't know where she was going with the story," noting that the four top-rated reviews of the book on Amazon share this assessment. It's been suggested that Roth's publisher got her to lengthen the first book into enough for two; the producers of the films have announced they're splitting ''Allegiant'' into two (''Allegiant'' is coming out in 2016, and the final entry - called ''Ascendant'' - in 2017), suggesting they see the same problem.
