* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Koko and her henchmen are quite good at assuming that the people they're dealing with might backstab them, so they have backup plans ready. They also go for [[CombatPragmatist the most efficient]] means of taking down particularly dangerous enemies.
** Knowing that Jonah will follow her no matter what, Valmet drugs his breakfast. Knowing that Valmet will drug him, Jonah doesn't eat enough to be permanently knocked out.

* {{Crossover}}: [[http://www.mangatraders.com/view/file/152632 With]] ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', funnily enough. Not surprisingly, Koko [[LesYay wraps herself around Revy's leg]] before getting her to buy a crapton of extra stuff on top of the Lagoon Company's weapons order. [[note]]American MRE rations, a [[Film/TeamAmerica Gary]] action-figure, an exercise set, and a lot of high class makeup[[/note]]

**At least in the English dub, the local the English mercenaries used a human bomb said "Oh God" in Iraqi Arabic.

* CutAndPasteTranslation: In the Japanese original, Valmet said in the first few minutes of the first episode that if Jonah would do anything to Koko, she'd kill him and than commit suicide. In the English dub, the suicide comment was omitted.
** During the fight with Karen Low, she says, that the dead can talk, unless she slices up their faces. The English dub omits the part about the slicing.

* ShownTheirWork:
** The weapons used in Jormungand are well detailed and described, as [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Jormungand this page shows]].
** The portrayal of the Bersaglieri, including the trademark black Capercaillie feathers to distinguish them from other Italian soldiers.
** The sales contract for the Hind-Ds is in SurprisinglyGoodEnglish and contains many clauses that one would find in a real business contract.
** The Dubai Police Force cruisers were shown properly with the green/white colors, though without contact info and the DPF logo in Arabic.
** The "Neuron UAV" that Amalia Tolohovsky was mentioned as pitching to prospective clients in episode 5 is a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dassault_nEUROn real UAV]] currently in development by [[UsefulNotes/GaulsWithGrenades Dassault Aviation.]]
** Chen being addressed as "shao jiang" (少将) by Karen. Since most personnel of Daxinghai are ex-[=PLA=] soldiers and officers, it is correct that Karen addresses Chen by his rank, since this indicates that he used to be with the army.
** On that note, Daxinghai itself: their role in providing security services that advance Chinese national interests is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhuOKiVADXA quite consistent with the real-life behavior of actual Chinese PMCs]] such as Huawei International Security Management and [[http://www.hwbaoan.com/index_en.asp Shandong Huawei Security Group.]]
** There actually ''is'' a Super Hind Mk V gunship; it's a South African upgrade/rebuild of the Hind. A few of them are in service with the militaries of third world countries.
** Koko mentions the existence of the "Utin Jääkärirykmentti" or "Utti Jaeger Regiment" in the Finnish Army. This regiment does actually exist and its main job is to train prospective Finnish commandos for either the Airborne (Paratroopers) or the Special Jaeger (Special Forces) companies.
** The officer from the unnamed Balkan Republic wears digital woodland camo, a standard feature of modern armies, whereas the paramilitaries have to make do with old style camo patterns.
** Mao correctly orders everyone to cover their ears and open their mouths before the gun is fired. The ears are self-explanatory. You want your mouth to be open because the pressure wave from the shot will cause your lungs to burst if you don't (the same applies if you're near the impact site of any big explosion, whether a bomb or artillery shell).
** Episode 9 has a reference to Rule 61 [=ICTY=]. This is Rule 61 of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, which basically allows the International Criminal Court to try accused people ''in absentia'' and issue a warrant for their arrest after all reasonable attempts to locate them have been exhausted.
** Bookman's connections and influence are entirely plausible given his position within the CIA's National Clandestine Service, the branch that conducts covert operations. Most media doesn't go into that much detail regarding CIA personnel.
** Also, a quick search of Google Earth will reveal that the aerial view of the CIA headquarters at Langley is more or less accurate.
*** In addition, Koko talks about various CIA positions to Jonah such as Case Officers or Paramilitary Operations Officers, which do exist within the organization as actual positions.
** Bookman graduated from Annapolis Naval Academy, but was commissioned into the US Marine Corps. It is a lesser known-fact that a small percentage of Marine officers really do come from Annapolis, which primarily serves to train officers of the US Navy.
** Spin, the CIA agent Hex meets at the start of the Dance with Undershaft arc, is extremely worried about his cover being blown, because he's under [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-official_cover Non-Official Cover]]: this is a term for intelligence agents with covert roles who are not officially tied to their government without diplomatic immunity, as opposed to agents like Scarecrow, who operate under Official Cover (usually as part of the Diplomatic Service) with diplomatic immunity.
** Tojo mentions the Military Intelligence Command (MIC) and the Intelligence Security Command (ISC) to his comrades in Japan. These are actual intelligence organizations in the JSDF. The latter does counter-intelligence against anyone trying to undermine the JSDF as a whole. The former does intelligence/counter-intelligence work for the JGSDF.
** When Lehm meets Wiley for the first time, he introduces himself as being a member of the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, which is the formal name for Delta Force.
** The two A-10s seen in "Pazuzu" are shown with the typical Scud hunting loadout, down to the positioning of ECM pod and self defense Sidewinders.
** The [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous SEALs]] from Alpha Platoon, SEAL Team 9, are correctly shown wearing the US Navy's AOR 2 digital camo, which was authorised for use by [=SEALs=] and Naval Special Warfare units only. They are also armed with [=SCAR-L=]s, which has also been adopted by all American special forces units as an official weapon.
** The CIA's Directorate of Science and Technology provides an assessment on the feasibility of quantum computing to Bookman.
** The drone Koko uses in "New World phase 3" is a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAGEM_Sperwer SAGEM Sperwer]], fitted with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spike_(missile) Spike missiles]], which were tested for use with the Sperwer.
*** In the same episode, the Night Nine team are connected to port 16 according to Dr. Miami due to Koko using ECM jamming. Port 16 on the tactical data link used by the US Armed forces is an ECM resistant high capacity link used when Jamming is present in a combat space.
** The [[SemperFi Marines]] in "Warmonger" are correctly shown wearing desert and woodland MARPAT digital camo.
