- Child Soldiers: He appeared to be in charge of one sect of them.
- The Dragon: For Benjamin Juma.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Very, very confusingly done with the black American woman with the wheelchair-bound sister. He initially claims he's going to kill her, but doesn't go through with it. He seems to actually care about her.
- He also loved his brother.
- The Heavy: Dubaku has a lot more screen time and time as Jack's active target then Juma does, he was known to have commanded much more moles/soldiers/operatives/mercenaries than Juma did and even his terrorist plot had a much higher death potential than the White House Siege would.
- During Redemption, he and his brother Youssou, even though they're clearly working under Juma, are the main threats.
- For the first 13 episodes of Season 7 (which focus on the Sangalan terrorists), Dubaku is the main threat for the first ten while Juma is the main threat for the last three.
- He Knows Too Much / You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Killed by one of Juma's men after his escape attempt fails to stop him from revealing Juma's planned raid on the White House.
- He also knows he will be subject to this, so he had compiled information about everyone allied with him in case something happened to him.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain! / Villain Ball: One major criticism against Dubaku's effectiveness as an antagonist was immediately after the device he was using to hack into the government's firewall was destroyed during a gun fight with Jack, the first thing he did to distract him and escape was kill the one man who could potentially build him another so he could continue holding the country hostage.
- No One Could Survive That!: Survives being right at the front of a land mine explosion in Redemption with little more than a few scratches.
A mercenary leader who recruited Tony.
- Defiant to the End: Emerson is still cursing out Tony as he dies.
- Even Evil Has Standards: He's big on loyalty.
