  • Awesome Moments: Arianne sassing Etain. This is the woman who got most of the Ninth Legion killed, and she's punked out by a hermit in the woods. Etain never discovers the men hiding in the hut.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: This is the movie where Michael Fassbender runs around shirtless in the snow for about twenty minutes.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Dominic West's General Virilius for being A Father to His Men and Too Cool to Live as noted below.

  • Heartwarming Moments: The farewell between Arianne and Quintus. Despite their short time together, they clearly do make a connection.
    Arianne: Good luck, Roman.
    Quintus: Good luck, witch.
  • One-Scene Wonder:
    • Ariane, who appears in one segment of the film besides the end and helps provide a Not So Different moment with Quintus.
    • Aeron the Pict archer has minimal lines but makes quite an impression as The Lancer to Gorlacon.
  • Retroactive Recognition: You might recognise Tarak the cook from playing Rook in Rogue One.
  • Ron the Death Eater: Some members of the fandom will often ignore the shades of grey presented with the characters - and paint either side as 100% justified in their actions. This is usually the Picts - due to Etain's Freudian Excuse and the murdered child.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Bothos getting shot by an archer just as he gets to the wall, and Quintus carrying him across it so he can die on the other side.

    • Etain's death is also played tragically. Despite her getting all his men killed, Quintus seems to pity her as she dies.
  • Too Cool to Live: General Virilus and Ubricullius.
