[[ForeignLanguageTheme It's also notable for being one of the few Animes to have a soundtrack composed and performed entirely by a foreigner.]] In this case, Jazz Fuson keyboardist David Garfield and his band.

* FrameUp: Semmerling purposefully hires Bean as a getaway driver for a bank heist while her assistant, Carrie, dresses as Chelsea, the daughter of a wealthy CEO, and be caught on camera as he's driving through a warehouse. Once the job is finished, her second phase is to kidnap said CEO and take his daughter to Bean, under the disguise of a "bodyguard" to have Bean deliver her to her manor in "his" place after he's "killed" by pursuers. Since the police caught whom they thought was Chelsea on camera in Bean's car, they assume Beam kidnapped her and go after him.

* HeelFaceTurn: Carrie at the end, somewhat. She threatens to shoot Bean [[spoiler: for Semmerling's death. But Bean points out that her death was her own fault and Semmerling was willing to ''shoot through'' Carrie just to kill him. Heck Bean was willing to accept Carrie's demands to take the money in exchange for their lives. But Semmerling was too stubborn to know when to quit. Carrie ultimately concedes and accepts Bean's offer to join Rally and him.]]

* BadBoss: Semmerling. Anyone under her employ is completely expandable to her plans. To wit, she kills one underling that was meant to be the driver of her big rig out of town just use his body to weight the gas pedal (apparently never hearing of cruise control) and uses Carrie as a hostage when Bean closes in to kill her just to get him to back off. Keep in mind, Carrie's her ''assistant''.

* CoolCar - Bean's especially so. With Bulletproofing, Gun Ports, [[BladeBrake Blade Braking]] and the ability to turn it's wheels 90 degrees and drive that way. In ''Manga/GunsmithCats'', Bean worked hard and paid millions of dollars to make the car and christened it as "The Buff".



* PrettyLittleHeadshots: Rally delivers one to the man brave enough to hold the little girl hostage.

to:

* PrettyLittleHeadshots: Rally delivers one to the man brave enough to hold the little girl hostage. Unfortunately averted for one of the mall cops in the intro.
* RareGuns: Well it is a work by Creator/KenichiSonoda so it's a given. In fact this is probably the only form of media where guns such as [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Semmerling_LM-4 Semmerling LM-4]], [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Solothurn_S-18_20mm_Anti-Tank_Rifle Solothurn S-18 20mm Anti-Tank Rifle]] and [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Ithaca_Mag-10_%22RoadBlocker%22 Ithaca Mag-10 "RoadBlocker"]] were actually shown,, alos there's the aforementioned [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Riding_Bean#Calico_M100 Calico_M100 Rifle]].
* RatedMForManly: Exemplified by Bean Bandit. His typical breakfast includes a salami the width of a normal person's arm and an entire pineapple. A taser blast to the neck can't even ''wake him up.'' ''He crushes shelled walnuts with his teeth.''

Added DiffLines:

* SunglassesAtNight: Bean, in the intro wears one, it doesn't damper his BadassDriver capabilities one bit.

* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Thanks to Bean's SuperStrength he can throw a knife with incredible force. Seriously, he throws one at Semmrling, it goes through the window and ''tears out the opposite door on the other side''.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: To ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'', the film is supposedly set in Chicago. The pile up scenes are quite similar to the film as is the highway sequence (though Bean is the one in pursuit rather than being chased and doesn't pull a car flip like Elwood did). Heck even the chase sequence under the railway tracks look lifted right from the film.

Added DiffLines:

* DomesticAbuse: Semmerlings to Carrie


Added DiffLines:

*FishEyes: Bean, after being [[spoiler: ''shot in the fucking head.'']] All things considered, he got off easy.


Added DiffLines:

* MirthlessLaughter: Both Semmerling and Bean share a brief moment of stress-laughter when [[spoiler: he somehow body-checks her car.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PrettyLittleHeadshots: Rally delivers one to the man brave enough to hold the little girl hostage.


Added DiffLines:

* SpotTheThread: The trailer used to block Bean's escape in the first heist, and the trailer Semmerling is escaping in are on and them same, but Bean doesn't realise this until he sees the bumps on the side from the police cars crashing into this.


Added DiffLines:

*VagueAge: Carrie: Young-looking enough to convincingly impersonate an 11-year old girl, old enough to be Semmerling's paramor. Lampshaded by the kidnapped CEO, and later on Bean.

* BulletProofVest: All but said that his leather jacket is heavily armored, with a strong hint that his headband bullet proof too, though the shot it stops does daze him for a moment.[[note]]The Gunsmith Cats version explicitly says this, revealing that the jacket weighs a ton.[[/note]]
