Added DiffLines:

* RapeAndRevenge: Comes up occasionally.
** In the first season, Spartacus kills [[spoiler: Gnaeus after he rapes Pietros, though unfortunately it's [[DrivenToSuicide too late for Pietros]]]]. In the same season, [[spoiler: Aurelia]] mentions that she [[GroinAttack castrated]] and/or killed the man who raped her after he tried it again.
** In the second season, Crixus and the rebels go on a [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge very bloody rampage]] around the Roman countryside, torturing and killing various dominus who raped and abused [[spoiler: Naevia, culminating in Naevia herself fighting, castrating and then decapitating Ashur, who first raped her and kickstarted her ordeal. For extra karma, Ashur gets delivered to the rebels by the machinations of Lucretia, whom he had also raped. Unfortunately, Naevia and Crixus later decide that [[RevengeBeforeReason ''all'' Romans must pay for her rape]]]].
** In the third season, [[spoiler: Caesar gets Tiberius captured by Spartacus, and Kore then proceeds to fatally stab him, after he raped both of them]].

** A meta/Real Life example, the series finale ends, after the credits, on a shot from the first season of the late Andy Whitfield declaring [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "I! AM! SPARTACUS!!"]] [[TheOtherDarin Liam MacIntyre was a perfect replacement]], but the man who made the role lives forever.

* BatmanGambit: Illithiya's EvilPlan in "Party Favors". [[spoiler: He had Numerius switch Crixus with Varro in his exhibition match with Spartacus. If Varro wins, her and her husband's hated enemy dies. If Spartacus wins (which happened), he will be emotionally and psychologically damaged for killing his best friend.]]

* BaitAndSwitchGunshot: "Kill Them All" has a pre-firearm example. When Crixus is trying to persuade Doctore to join the rebellion, Doctore suddenly throws his sword towards Crixus... and kills the guard who was about to strike Crixus from behind.

Added DiffLines:

* LaResistance: The rebels are initially this, especially in ''Vengeance''. By the final season, they're a full-fledged army.


Added DiffLines:

* TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized: It's more of a rebellion than a revolution, but this trope still applies. The rebels can be just as brutal as the Romans, especially by ''War of the Damned'', though they do have some moral high ground in that they are opposed to slavery and are responding to the cruelty and injustices inflicted upon them by the Romans first.

* CrapSackWorld: The Roman Republic comes across as one at times. If you're a slave, you have no rights and will subjected to hard labour and abuse, with their being nothing you can do it, and are at the mercy of your masters. Even gladiators, who are treated better than most slaves, are still subjected to TrainingFromHell and forced to fight to the death...if they're ''lucky''. If you escape, you risk being crucified or killed in battle, and some of the rebels aren't much nicer than the Romans, with access to food and shelter being a problem too. If you're a wealthy Roman, you have to lie, cheat, steal and possibly commit a few murders to get anywhere and your so-called 'friends' will only remain so as long as you're useful to them, meaning you can't trust anyone. And then there's a chance Spartacus and his rebels will get you.

* AnyoneCanDie: Continuing the tradition. It'd be easier to list the characters ''that live''. Crassus, Caesar, and Pompey obviously, [[spoiler:Agron, Nasir, Laeta, Sibyl, and bit characters Belesa, the unnamed mother with her baby, and the Veteran Gladiator]].

* AnyoneCanDie: Continuing AwfulTruth: Crassus learns a pretty terrible truth towards the tradition. It'd be easier to list end of the characters ''that live''. Crassus, Caesar, season: his beloved son [[spoiler: was a monster who brutally raped his lover, eventually leading her to kill him, murdered a slave who knew about the rape and Pompey obviously, [[spoiler:Agron, Nasir, Laeta, Sibyl, and bit characters Belesa, the unnamed mother with her baby, and the Veteran Gladiator]].also assaulted Caeser for calling him out on it]]. He (understandably) doesn't take it very well at all.
