** BadassInANiceSuit: Can be one if you choose. [[spoiler:Definitely is one during the wedding, the funeral, and the final mission.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's actually a well balanced & caring individual during normal times. But you can't forget that anyone who has threatened his friends & family has never came back, alive.

* SharpDressedMan: In a way, the game doesn't force you to have Wei wear a suit but by the end game he'll wear a lot of them for quests. Also the games clothes all are somehow conveniently limited to colors aligning with Wei's winter complexion.

* BreakTheCutie: Jackie has a lot of ambition about becoming a Sun On Yee but even from the very beginning you can kind of tell he probably wouldn't be cut out for the ruthlessness of being a full-on career criminal. Slowly but surely his veneer cracks and he becomes less-and-less enthralled by the lifestyle until finally it breaks [[spoiler:after he's buried alive and turns totally cold.]] His enthusiasm is completely shattered after that, as is his worldview. [[FromBadToWorse And can you believe that isn't even as low as it goes for him]]?

* DistressedDude: Played with in one mission, where Jackie gets locked inside an 18K truck with an angry 18K member after a heist gone wrong. When you stop the truck and bust open the back to save him, you discover [[TookALevelInBadass he curbstomped his opponent alone and walks off just fine]].

* UnmanlySecret: If the dialogue in his quest when you hijack a Bisai is anything to go by, he secretly wants to buy a tiny little smart car of his own after the Crab Car finally breaks -- which is probably why he mistreats the Crab Car so badly.

* BerserkButton: Drive too recklessly around his lot and he may run after you with a wrench. It's probably not intentional.
* DeathIsCheap: If you lure him far enough, you can throw him onto spikes or into a tub of electric eels -- And yet the next time you visit his chop-shop he will be perfectly unharmed.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Yells at you for cheating on her when you confront her but her police file makes it clear that she's been juggling multiple relationships with men ([[WhatAnIdiot several of them from Triads]]) before she met Wei. Also their relationship [[GameplayAndStorySegregation was really just one date and sex]].

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The return of his statues is rewarded with a new technique and a snippet of dialogue concerning mortality, ethics and the general state of the world. When returning the last statue and preparing to learn Dim Mak, all you get is "Pay attention, because this technique is dangerous, and if you abuse it, I'll kick your ass."

* GenreSavvy: Kwok is aware Wei's aligned with the triads, but his dialogue suggests he also knows his pupil's working undercover. Wei subtlety acknowledges this, to which his master hopes his fight against the gangs doesn't rob him of his duty and morality.
