* BadAss: Anyone called Spriggan is automatically a BadAss.



* EliteMooks: [=COSMOS=]. You don't fuck around with these kids. They're also ChildSoldiers kidnapped at a young age and trained to be special forces-trained assassins with lots of brainwashing.


Added DiffLines:

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Oboro is a benevolent version. Chen Suan Lee is the evil version.
* BareFistedMonk: Oboro and Chen Suan Lee. Oboro's personality and goals fit this the closest. Bo Brantze also counts.
* BadassNormal: Oboro, [[spoiler: Yamamoto]] and Chen Suan Lee. [[spoiler: Yamamoto]] stands out because he, unlike the other two, does not have mad kungfu skill, just incredible aim and reflexes. Akatsuki and Yuu also becomes this at the end of the story, having ditched their respective suits.

Added DiffLines:

* StealthMentor: A variation occurs when Oboro was first introduced. He was a good guy all along, and was a double agent. [[spoiler: A more straight example occurs late in the series when he seemingly defects to Trident. He fought and seemingly killed Jean and later fought Yuu. After being defeated (he may have limited himself) he explains that he did all that to unlock Yuu's true potential and he knew Jean wouldn't be that easily killed. It was shown in subsequent battles that the two indeed became a lot more powerful after his "lesson".]]

* AdaptationDistillation: The entire film contained scenes that showed [[spoiler:Yu's failed brainwashing when he was COSMOS.]] Unless you read the manga (either the Shogakukan version or the translated versions that are completed), you won't know why the scene was in there. Watching the film assumes that the viewers are familiar with the Noah's Ark story.

* ShoutOut: Maj. Fatman and Little Boy are named after the two [[UsefulNotes/{{WWII}} nuclear bombs dropped on Japan]].
** ARCAM could be possibly an allusion to [[Creator/HPLovecraft Arkham]]. According to [[http://www.webcitation.org/6FrRNxFBb this article, it's potentially possible that the creators of Spriggan made the spelling intentional, while having some Lovecraft inspiration.]]



** When Spriggan was released in Canada and in the US, France, Spain, it was known as '''Striker'''. This was probably since the translators made the change from '''Spriggan''' as they said the former was the meaning of the latter in English.



* SameFaceDifferentName: When Spriggan was released in Canada and in the US, France, Spain, it was known as '''Striker'''. This was probably since the translators made the change from '''Spriggan''' as they said the former was the meaning of the latter in English. The North American translation changed names from the Machiner's Platoon to the MJ-12.
* ShoutOut: The way the YAMA virus makes threats to send the world into a nuclear war is [[{{Franchise/Terminator}} similar to what [=Skynet=] would do.]]
** [[spoiler:Rick Bordeau's first introduction in Romania to Jean]] can be seen as a homage to the [[{{Franchise/StarWars}} Star Wars]] franchise. Ryoji Minagawa is an avid Star Wars fan, having watched it because it was made by George Lucas.
** Jack the Ripper, a Trident mercenary operative with Orihalcum blades in his arms takes his codename [[RealLife from the British serial killer of the same name]].
