* {{Awesome McCool Name}}: The best part is, it isn't even a fake name. He's named for a real life Nick Angel, who was the head of sound design for the film. (As such, there's a bit of InsistentTerminology in play--the character is always referred to as ''Nicholas'' and never ''Nick'', partly to keep up the "serious Ace" characterization but mostly to not step on the sound guy's toes.)

Added DiffLines:

* RedHerring: [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; While at first it seemed blatantly obvious Skinner killed all of the victims over some overly complex plan to secure valuable land, he seemingly proves his innocence with a rock-solid alibi. That is until Angel successfully deduces he's just one of many murderers.]]
