* ResponsibleSibling: Not by much, but Connor is generally more inclined to have a plan, except for in certain [[BerserkButton desperate situations]].

* ResponsibleSibling: FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Not by much, but Connor is generally more calm, level-headed, and inclined to have a plan, except for in certain [[BerserkButton desperate situations]].



* DeadpanSnarker: Whenever Connor's plans involve something from a movie or TV show, this side comes out in full force.

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: While both of them are fairly hot-headed, Murphy is definitely the more impulsive of the two.



* TranquilFury: When shit really hits the fan, Murphy tends to stay very calm while reacting.



* DisguisedInDrag[=/=]PaperThinDisguise
* FanDisservice: Willem Dafoe in drag. Individual opinions can vary on the end result, but Troy Duffy wasn't exactly trying to throw the audience a bone.



* PaperThinDisguise: Willem Dafoe makes as convincing a woman as [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Bugs Bunny]] does. And like Bugs, he has extreme good fortune to "seduce" the one guy on earth [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy thick enough]] to be fooled by his getup.



* WholesomeCrossdresser: He does this [[spoiler:to infiltrate the BigBad's mansion, and gets a little too into character]]. It inadvertently ends up saving his life, since [[spoiler:Il Duce mistakes him for a woman from behind and simply knocks him out]].

* FriendlySniper



* BigBrotherInstinct: Despite the fact that they are, in fact, twins, Connor shows a much more protective attitude towards his brother than Murphy does towards Connor.



* LargeHam[=/=]NoIndoorVoice: While Connor does have his quiet badass moments (such as during the "kill 'em all" speech at Rocco's place), when he gets going, it's with all the Hot Blood of his general nature.

* HotBlooded: Connor is the more hot-tempered of the two, and is the one most prone to making fiery speeches, such as [[spoiler:during the final courtroom scene in the first movie]].

* PetTheDog: While in the hospital, he plays with a sick child despite his own wounds.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Murphy's Blue. Connor is far more HotBlooded and prone to emotional extremes.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: {{Averted}}, in that Connor's HotBlooded nature makes him both more emotionally open ''and'' prone to ridiculous feats of manliness. Not to mention it is implied that he got his looks and outgoing personality from his ''mother''.



The introverted, pragmatic, [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette dark-haired and pale-skinned twin]].

more impulsive MacManus twin.



* ColdSniper: To a lesser extent than usual for the trope. He still shows no qualms about hitting girls who hit him (or Connor) first, shoots a not-quite-dead mobster without blinking, and stabs one of the mob dudes who captured them in the back repeatedly with a broken hand. [[spoiler:Most likely from his father's side of the family, as Noah [=MacManus=] also had the pale-skinned dark-haired look (when he was younger) and tendency to smoke.]]



* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Connor's Red. Murphy is the more grounded and compassionate of the two.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Played with. He is the calmer, nicer of the two twins as you can see when Rocco fights the hitman, he goes to help Rocco before Connor makes him "prove himself" and when Connor's not looking provides Rocco with a weapon. Being pale, withdrawn, and more lightly built than Connor makes him ''appear'' somewhat frailer... [[ItsPersonal until he gets]] [[TranquilFury really mad]], [[ColdSniper that is]].



* SugarAndIcePersonality: While much quieter than Connor, he can't [[NotSoStoic stay calm]] for long when [[spoiler:Rocco dies]].

Added DiffLines:

* MixedMetaphor: He keeps coming out with nonsense combinations like "people in glass houses sink ships". Rocko offers to buy him a phrase book after that one.

* LargeHam: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=774JiSMWdQQ Best exemplified by this scene]] - where every line of dialogue he delivers is AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS!

* LargeHam: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=774JiSMWdQQ Best exemplified by this scene]] - where every line of dialogue he delivers is AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS! Say what you will about the character, but he has some of the most entertainingly over-the-top lines in the movie.

* SixthRanger: Well, third, but he's a latecomer to the team.
