* Doc being stunned that most of his comrades in the original team were long gone by the time Barney and the others saved him.

* The short sequence in the third, where the older Expendables are shown listless and frustrated with the team disbanded and Barney working with the new blood, is surprisingly poignant. Without their shared purpose and camaraderie, Gunnar, Christmas, Toll Road and Doc just seem... lost.
** Special mention to Doc, who's shown staring uncertainly at his motel room bed... before sleeping on a blanket on the floor next to it instead. Jars painfully with his earlier excitement at coming home.

* Still in the third, [[spoiler: Caesar being shot and the events that ensue, leading Barney to fire his team so that they will live]]. The latter part doubles as a moment of Heartwarming.

* There's a certain recognition of the passage of time at the very end of the sequel, when in an extremely meta moment, Barney comments on his new plane, "That belongs in a museum", to which Trench replies "We all do." A recognition that their age is coming towards an end.
