6 Underground provides examples of the following tropes:
- Due to the Dead: In the trailer a dead soldier with the American flag wrapping his coffin is given the respects by another soldier.
- Hollywood Magnetism: Ryan Reynold's character activates a device he touts as the "world's biggest magnet" in the trailer.
- Roofhopping: People are seen hopping on the roofs of Florence in the trailer, including one runnning down the dome of the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral.
- Scenery Porn: There are some gorgeous aerial views of Abu Dhabi and Florence in the trailer.
- Two Girls to a Team: A shot of the titular 6 walking towards the camera in the trailer shows that it includes two women.
