* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler: Rex]] snaps after his CrisisOfFaith and walks up to the Nazi headquarters with a pistol, killing the guards before being himself killed by the commander



** Kit Vanson spends all 3 series just barely managing to avoid this, having thrown himself into espionage (and occasionally demonstrating flashes of DeathSeeker tendencies) in order to not think about his dead wife and children.



** Apparently how Sylvie realized that Franz might be able to help her free Rex was by watching him feed the swans at the local park.

** Apparently how Sylvie realized that Franz might be able to help her free Rex was by watching him feed the swans at the local park. [[spoiler: When she's due to be executed he comes to her cell and comforts her]]



** Franz from series 3 actually is one: he is clearly uncomfortable guarding a priest (even one who's a Maquis commander) and is actually ''relieved'' when "six desperate men" (aka: Sylvie and Adele) manage to free his prisoner.

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: the division the main characters serve in is considered this by some in the army.

to:

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: the division the main characters serve in is considered this by some in the army. Given that the primary talent they seem to be recruited for is the ability to speak French fluently and without an accent, almost all of them come from distinctly non-military backgrounds; most of them appearing to be somewhat aristocratic (Mattie being the most notable exception), as those were the sort of people who could have either studied the language extensively or lived in France. This also makes them a rather odd match with the heavily communist French Underground agents they work with.
