Added DiffLines:

* InformedJudaism: He's wearing a necklace with a Star of David on it, and he's shown [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6MzMA7kfafw dreaming about dancing a traditional Jewish dance]].


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJewishBoy: Averted. He's the most violent of the trio, even though he is a NiceGuy [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold deep down]].


* [[spoiler:TheHeroDies]]: In the final moments of the film.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The tough [[{{Delinquents}} delinquent]] [[LowerClassLout raised in Paris' roughest neighborhood]] is ultimately motivated by grief for his fallen friend, and is shown to be rather sensitive and protective of his other two friends.
* ManlyTears: Vinz is brought to tears when he's [[spoiler: about to kill the skinhead, but realizes he's unable to]].
* PaperTiger: Despite his violent fantasies and brash threats, when faced with the opportunity to murder a neo-Nazi skinhead, he's unable to carry out the deed.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Vinz vows that if his friend Abdel succumbs to police-inflicted injuries, he'll [[CopKiller kill a police officer]], [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge as payback]].

* AngryBlackMan: Averted. Hubert, the sole Afro-French character, is quiet, pensive, and mature. It's Vinz, the Jewish character, who harbors the bitterness and anger towards the injustice he and his friends face.
* NeutralNoLonger: Throughout the film, Hubert takes a subdued, pacifistic approach to the conflict he's surrounded by. The death of [[spoiler:Vinz]] ultimately spurs him into taking a stand, and a potentially violent one at that (one interpretation of the AmbiguousEnding is that [[spoiler: Hubert killed the policeman who killed Vinz, ultimately carrying out the deed he worked so hard to prevent]]).
* ThePacifist: Hubert is vehemently anti-violence, in contrast to his rage-filled friend prone to violent fantasies.

! Saïd
* GraffitiOfTheResistance: Saïd appears to seek resistance through graffiti. In the very first scene, he vandalizes a police car with "baise la police" ("fuck the police"). Later, he changes a billboard which reads "le monde à vous" ("the world is yours") to "le monde à nous" ("the world is ours").
* HeroicBSOD: After witnessing [[spoiler: the death of his closest friend before his very eyes]], the final shot of the film is Saïd's horrified, broken expression.
* PluckyComicRelief: Saïd spends most of the film dutifully following Vinz around, trying to make him laugh.

* TheGhost: Abdel never appears onscreen, but its his injury and later [[PlotTriggeringDeath death]] that spurs Vinz into pursuing revenge.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Abdel is comatose when the story begins, having been brutally beaten by the police. He later dies.
