* HoYay: Though the boys do talk a lot about girls and even (sort of) hit on some in the gallery, their closest relationship is clearly with each other. Saïd in particular it seems is [[Main/{{AmbiguouslyBi}} just as keen on playfully flirting with his friends as he is with anyone else.]] He wakes up Vinz by kissing him on the cheek, follows him around, and tries to make him laugh; the two share a sweet moment when Vinz cuts Saïd's hair before [[Main/{{LikeAnOldMarriedCouple}} devolving into bickering.]]

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The behaviour of the main characters and their tendency to escalate anything into a fight can increasingly make one feel that the police's treatment of them is entirely justified.

* HarsherInHindsight: In light of the Paris attacks in 2015 this movie is a lot harder to watch knowing that it came out in 1995 and tensions between the french state and working class immigrants would only increase.

Added DiffLines:

** To an extent, the old man in the public toilets - he walks out of one of the cubicles while Vinz and Hubert are arguing, starts talking about his friend Grunwalski, and then leaves. May be [[Main/{{JustifiedTrope}} justified]], given that his story has a moral that connects with the themes of the film.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Woolseyism}}: The film has a character nicknamed 'ComicBook/{{Asterix}}', famous to the French but likely to be lost on English and American viewers at the time of release. At least one release instead called him [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]] in the subtitles. Another character later snarks that they have Obelix with them; he was localised as Charlie Brown.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The Cow.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: The behaviour of the main characters and their tendency to escalate anything into a fight can increasingly make one feel that the police's treatment of them is entirely justified.
