Added DiffLines:

** Quentin Lance is a concentration camp commandant.


* BadassGay: Citizen Cold and The Ray are a couple, and two very effective Freedom Fighters.


* ShownTheirWork: Jax asks Ray why he wears a pink triangle in the concentration camp. Ray responds, "Because I loved the wrong person." A lot of viewers might be unfamiliar with what this means, unless they're familiar with details from the Holocaust-a pink triangle was used for LGBT prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. While after they show Ray is with Snart they can infer this, a person aware will get it ahead of time.



* UnusualEuphemism: Jax asks Ray why he wears a pink triangle in the concentration camp. Ray responds, "Because I loved the wrong person."

!!Tropes:



* AirVentPassageway: The vents at S.T.A.R. Labs are so big that Felicity and Iris can almost stand up inside it.

* BroughtDownToNormal: Red sun radiation is used to remove Kara's powers so she can be operated on.

* EurekaMoment: When Oliver-X tells Thawne that his men have combed all of STAR Labs, wondering where the intruders have gone, Thawne realizes that there's one place he knows for sure they haven't looked: the Time Vault.
* EvilCounterpart: One of the Nazi weapons is an evil Waverider, the ''Der Wellenreiter''. Its portals are even red instead of blue.

* {{Foil}}: Whereas Kara has struggled with her humanity throughout Season 3 of her show, her Earth-X counterpart has outright abandoned it, seeing herself as being above humans.



* PowerNullifier: The collar given to all the Earth-1 prisoners neutralize their powers, forbidding Flash to vibrate and speed up, or Jax and Stein to fuse as Firestorm. And, as we find out later, the Ray to activate his FlyingFirepower. They also wonder why the {{Badass Normal}}s are wearing them too, until it's revealed these double as {{Shock Collar}}s.



* RedHerring: The prism that the Nazis are searching Earth-1 for (and what the Earth-1 heroes believe to be they were making a nuke) was actually meant to power a red solar lamp needed for Overgirl's and Supergirl's operation. The Nazis already have ''another'' superweapon, anyway...
* RealityEnsues: While the good guys fight Nazis in the hanger, the Krauts decide to stop using HollywoodTactics and use ''actual'' tactics. Specifically, bringing heavy weapons to bear, which pins the good guys down. This also shows what happens when a single superpowered being (Firestorm) decides to split into two perfectly ordinary mortal humans in the middle of a firefight. Stein catches a bullet because of it.

* ShockCollar: The PowerNullifier collars double as these, and when the heroes try a last desperate stand before their execution, Lance-X activate every one, shocking the whole of them into submission.



* TemptingFate: Sara wondering why all of them are wearing power-dampeners, when the Nazis only needed Barry, Martin and Jax to be in them. Shortly, when attempting to break out, they later learn that it's because they're {{Shock Collar}}s as well.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: When Iris and Felicity are trying to get to The Pipeline, through the over-sized air ducts, Felicity quips, "Lead on, [[Film/DieHard McClane]]."

* GenreSavvy: Kommandant Lance obviously expected Oliver to try impersonating his Earth-X counterpart at some point, clearly being suspicious of Oliver from the start, having Felicity-X on hand, and carrying an unloaded pistol to hand "the Fuehrer". For his part, Oliver also didn't seem surprised in the least to be informed the pistol was unloaded following his ImpostorExposingTest test, and even when he turns around to point the weapon at Lance, it's as if he's just going through the motions.

Added DiffLines:

** Harry playing with a ball while imprisoned in the Pipeline. He is most likely in Mark Mardon's cell, and he's using the same ball that Mark was playing with in a FreezeFrameBonus during "Rogue Air".

Added DiffLines:

* BrigBallBouncing: While imprisoned in the pipeline, Harry can be seen playing with a ball in his cell, driving his neighbor Cisco nuts and causing them to bicker as usual, much to Dinah's irritation


* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Upon Citizen Cold freeing Ray from his bonds, Ray tells his new friends that they might want to [[LightEmUp close their eyes]].

* NoodleIncident: How or why the Ray travelled from Earth One to Earth-X isn't explained.
* NoSympathy: Played with. Earth-X Winn does not care about how destroying the breach will affect Earth-1 since he only fights to liberate Earth-X. He does, however, seem sincerely apologetic to Alex-it's just that his world is much more important to him.

* OutOfCharacterAlert: Conspicuously avoided by Ollie. While impersonating his counterpart, Ollie refuses Quentin Lance-X's suggestion to delay the ''Der Wellenreiter'', which wouldn't make much sense. It's likely this was another test by Quentin.
