* AxCrazy: They get ''real'' enthusiastic when they get to kill someone.

to:

* AxCrazy: They get ''real'' enthusiastic when they get to kill someone. Max says that they'd "have hung the heads of their enemies over the manor gates", if only their boss would let them.


Added DiffLines:

* ShroudedInMyth: Rico is apparently a "real Keyser Soze spook story" to the New York underworld, though we don't see much of the reason why in his one and only fight.


Added DiffLines:

* KnightTemplar: Seems to see himself as this, protecting "good people" by wiping out the bad. But when he starts [[spoiler: massacring the homeless and disenfranchised for their organs, not to mention hiring his militia out as an assassination squad]], he's arguably become just as bad as the men he's after.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: Had the chance to blow Max and Passos out of the sky after the firefight at the stadium, but decided against it because he was being paid to retrieve the money, not kill two nobodies. Suffice to say, that comes back to bite ''everybody'', including him.]]

'''The spoilers were like an old road map, the blood of my wife staining the grids. I could see some of the roads, but others were a blur, lost beneath crimson smudges. I guess there are things one can't know everything about. Ruins the fun of experiencing it.'''

** Throughout the series, Max is shot up, blown up, drugged, set on fire, beaten, and falls several stories often to a hard landing. He usually just pops some painkillers and walks it off. In the third game he gets nicked by a sniper's bullet, and despite bleeding profusely he stays on his feet and walks (albeit pausing to rest a few times) a fair distance until Raul can patch him up, at which point Max seems just fine for the rest of the level. However, nothing tops the climax of the second game, where he ''gets shot in the head at point-blank range with a Desert Eagle'', and all it does is knock him unconscious. Within a few hours he's alive and ready to storm the final level full of dangerous commandos.

** Throughout the series, Max is shot up, blown up, drugged, set on fire, beaten, and falls several stories often to a hard landing. And he tends to do several of these in the span of 24 hours at a time. He usually just pops some painkillers and walks it off. In the third game he gets nicked by a sniper's bullet, and despite bleeding profusely he stays on his feet and walks (albeit pausing to rest a few times) a fair distance until Raul can patch him up, at which point Max seems just fine for the rest of the level.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperReflexes: The Bullet Time is basically an extension of his reflexes. UpToEleven in 2, where he doesn't slow that much during bullet time, and he gets faster as he kills enemies (which makes it feel more like a super power, though it can be handwaved by adrenaline).

-->[[spoiler:Vlad]]: "What the fuck is wrong with you, Max? Why don't you just die? You hate life, you're miserable all the time, afraid to enjoy yourself even a little! Face it, you might as well be dead already. Do yourself a favor, give up!"
