* {{Zeerust}}: The video phone booth, outdated even when the movie was made, especially in Korea and Japan. Even dealing in an alternate timeline won't make it forgivable.

* ButterflyOfDoom: The conspirators of the Inoue Foundation explain Saigo thoroughly that he and his family won't exist in a world without a surviving Hirobumi, so that he cannot renounce to follow the call. Considering what the butterfly effect is all about, it's completely {{Justified|Trope}}.

* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: The employer of police officers Saigo and Sakamoto, the Japanese Bureau of Investigation (JBI). We may assume that the producers [[TheyJustDidntCare didn't care in the first place]] why a domestic intelligence service needed the word "Japanese" in its name.

* DressingAsTheEnemy: Not really as the enemy considering which side Saigo is on in 1909, but he still kills one of the guards to take his uniform and mesh unnoticed among the other guards at Harbin station as the only savvy Japanese to protect Hirobumi from An's shots. [[spoiler: In vain.]]
