* NiceJobFixingItVillain: This man is the sole reason the game is called [[MeaningfulTitle Sleeping Dogs.]] Before he sent in Wei, the Sun On Yee was on the brink of collapsing under it's own mismanagement and interfactionary tension. Wei, a man with his own personal drama with the Sun On Yee waiting to be kicked off, not only raises it from it's slumber, culls the poisonous parts of the organization, and makes it the strongest Triad gang in Hong Kong, [[spoiler: but also makes sure the dog bites and gets Pendrew sent to prison.]]

* DrillSergeantNasty: While a strict-but-fair father figure most of the time the insults he throws at underperforming students slide into this.

* AmbiguousDisorder: While the game proper never gets into it, the police files on Wei make it pretty clear that contrary to his perfect social functioning he's pretty far gone into something.

* AmbiguousDisorder: While the game proper never gets into it, the police files on Wei make it pretty clear that contrary to his perfect social functioning he's pretty far gone into something. It's still unclear if it's a disorder or a really adaptable personality.

* ByronicHero: Wei at first appears like a generic cop AntiHero, with a heavy aversion to killing anyone except the target of his revenge: [[spoiler:Dogeyes, whom he plans to murder. Then after the warehouse gunfight, where he is forced to kill many people for no reason other than survival, the trauma of it wakes up Wei's dark side and he quickly becomes this. Attractive? Check. Brooding to the point of setting up titanium thick emotional walls? Check. Haunted by both a significant loss AND a past crime? Check. Passionate in his beliefs? Check. Heavy conflict with other's philosophies and especially with authority that results in (temporary) rejection/exile from the police force via Pendrew and social isolation from the surviving Triad members ? Check. His transition to Byronic Hero is exemplified as the takedowns he can use get more and more brutal as the game goes on, starting with simple (if harsh) knockouts when he is still just an upstanding AntiHero and eventually evolving into impaling people on Sword-fish heads or burning them to death as he is more and more convinced that underground HongKong (barring his branch of the [[UndyingLoyalty Sun On Yee]]) deserves to burn.]]
