* ShippedInShackles: Il Duce (who provides the page image for this trope) is introduced in the first film being moved from his cell to the ground floor for a parole hearing. He is cuffed hand and foot, chained to a rolling platform, and wheeled down to the parole board. The entire prison is put on high-alert, with shotgun-wielding guards on every floor, all to move one man down a few flights of stairs. Once he's there, they even put him inside a metal cage to protect the parole board. All of this serves to establish the guy as a hard-core {{Badass}}.
