* ConflictBall: 1 starts out opposing everything 9 suggests. Then [[spoiler: everyone else starts opposing 9's ideas as well near the end, when they try to destroy the Machine but he doesn't want to]]. 1 even refuses at first to [[spoiler: take of his cape to save his life]], for no adequately explained reason.
** The last one can be sort of explained...1 never actually ''refused'', or said "no," he said "I can't." He probably was afraid he'd fall if he freed one hand, but he still isn't flat-out opposing 9.
** The fact that 1 didn't want to remove his cape could have been symbolic. The cape could symbolize to 1 his authority over the stichpunks, and losing it would mean losing the very thing that defined him (besides his dogged stubbornness).[[spoiler: It could also foreshadow his eventual HeroicSacrifice later in the movie. First, a lost cape, next, Soul Theft]].
** OR he could have just not wanted to loosen his desperate grip so as to free a hand for taking the cape off.

* UsefulNotes/WorldWarI: The trailer seems to hint that the film takes place after the War. Whereas some of the technology seen in flashbacks during the movie proper (four-engined bombers, Molotov cocktails, 1930's-40's styled helmets) seems evocative of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. This can be explained by the fact that the film definitely depicts an AlternateHistory. If you look at the newspapers, you'll notice they were dated sometime in the 1930s. Of course, the setting and general aesthetic is consistent with this as well. The [[PuttingOnTheReich Nazi-like government]], the old-style vinyl record phonograph and accompanying music collection, the walkers equipped with Vickers-like machine guns...
