* AntiClimaxBoss: For all his hype, even before God's intervention, [[spoiler: Pyriel goes down like a chump far easier than ANY OTHER ANGEL in the series.]]
* CompleteMonster: Pyriel, The Whited Sepulcher of the third film, is an OmnicidalManiac of an angel, having assumed the mantle of the "Angel Of Genocide." While his former leader Gabriel simply balked at having humanity placed above angels and genuinely loved their Father, Pyriel fancies himself and has his followers call him [[AGodAmI the new God]] and that his mission is to help the [[FantasticRacism "monkeys" perish]], adding "Genocide...it happens now and then." His mercilessness extends to his own angel brethren as he has his fallen brothers captured and tormented in horrible agony. When confronted by the hero, the Nephalim Danyael, Pyriel attempts to kill him by sadistically crushing his skull and shoving his thumbs through his eyes, grinning the entire time.
* FoeYay: Gabriel tenderly kisses Simon's hand when they meet. Also, Lucifer's scene with Gabriel, where he ''licks his face'' before [[spoiler:ripping his heart out and eating it]].
* MagnificentBastard: Gabriel in the first two movies. OneSceneWonder Lucifer as well.
* RetroactiveRecognition: It seems [[LordOfTheRings Satan took up the Shards of Narsil]] at some point.
** Amanda Plummer as Rachel.
* {{Sequelitis}}: All of the sequels, especially the fourth and fifth movies.
