* TheMole: He snitches on the 18K to Inspector Teng, but as his police files show, he's usually more interested
willfully in using his status as an informant to protect his own criminal dealings than providing any useful info to the police.
** He'd also (correctly) figured that Wei was undercover. When Naz revealed this, Wei counters, "And I know you're a snitch. [[TakeThat You want to see who your boys kill first]]?"
* NiceToTheWaiter: Averted, big time. His treatment of Jackie is what brings him down.

* BadassMustache

* 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 Wei gets is "Pay attention, because this technique is dangerous, and if you abuse it, I'll kick your ass."

illegal racing ring.


Added DiffLines:

* GracefulLoser: No matter how much shit he talks before (and during) a race, he plays clean, and when he loses he doesn't through a tantrum, unlike Hotshot.
* SpiritedCompetitor: He's interested in racing. He doesn't want to win through cheating.



!!Hotshot

An illegal underground racing driver infamous not only for his smug attitude, but for rumors of cheating and manslaughter.
----
* CheatersNeverProsper: Starts his race with Wei by jumping the gun on the starting countdown. Said race also has a police ambush waiting for him at the end.
* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Hotshot is nail bitingly frustrating to tail because, as befitting his personality, he blatantly disobeys traffic laws, ignoring stoplights and driving on the shoulder to get around those who don't, and sometimes even gets into fender benders at intersections. In order to stay even remotely near him, you have to break laws as well, which obviously raises your suspicion meter.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Became "The Best Racer in Hong Kong" by murdering all his competitors by ramming them off the road. Wei leads him right into a police ambush, then rams his car until it stops working, leading to his arrest.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Frequently uses unfair and downright dangerous moves in his races, but gets in a hiss fit when others do it ''to him''.
* InformedAttribute: His racing prowess, since he murders anyone who dares challenge him and the one time Wei does race him he needs to cheat to stay ahead.
* JerkAss: Made clear from his first appearance.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He certainly ''thinks'' he's hot shit. Simply suggesting otherwise by, y'know, ''actually challenging him to a race'' is sacrilege in his mind.
* SmugSnake: During his race with Wei, he makes several comments about his skill.

'''Hotshot:''' It's not cheating if you win!

* DumbMuscle: While his gang overall tends towards this, Winston himself has shades of this, with his HKPD field report describing him as "ambitious without the brains to achieve his goals", as of 2010 (almost two years before the events of the game) he was described as sometimes unable to "even master street-level criminal conspiracies", and his lack of sophistication means that even though he answers directly to [[TheDon Uncle Po]], other red poles eclipse Winston in power and influence.
