* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Pretty much everyone hates Paulie, with other mobsters, and members of his family expressing their disapproval at his antics, and are more than willing to help Jackie get Paulie out of the picture. Even his men can be heard talking about how they despise him and [[spoiler: the survivors of Jackie's final RoaringRampageOfRevenge, will turn against Paulie (ofcourse this is after they are grievously wounded by his powers).]]

* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: To Paulie from the first game. Paulie is a fat Mafia don, who commits needless cruel crimes for pretty much any reason, is cowardly, is pretty down to Earth in a MagicRealism game, his entire personality can be summed up in over the top anger at all times, and ultimately a ZeroEffortBoss. Victor is thin, the leader of a ReligionOfEvil, seeks and relies on magical artifacts with supernatural ambitions, only uses the mob and underworld as a front for his operations, is pragmatic (if only slightly) and alternates between calm and collect to a rather vicious streak. Both however are still sadistic [[CompleteMonster Comlete Monsters]] and both start out their respective games sending their men on a suicide mission.

* HandicappedBadass
* ObviouslyEvil

to:

* HandicappedBadass
HandicappedBadass: Having a leg brace does virtually nothing to stop him from being a competent fighter against Jackie. Could be due to airing Darkness powers.

* BadBoss: His EstablishingCharacterMoment is leading Jackie into a suicide mission for questioning how he does his business.



* TheDon
* EntitledBastard
* EvilUncle
* FatBastard

to:

* TheDon
DisproportionateRetribution: Pretty much his MO. He is known for vicious retaliation against the slightest offence against him. The biggest example in the game is him blowing up and orphanage to spite Jackie.
* EntitledBastard
TheDon: Of the Franchetti Crime Family. Not that the rest of the mob is happy with him.
* EvilUncle
EntitledBastard: Paulie is someone who has no loyalty but expects it in return. He pretty much expects everyone to sit back and take his bullshit. When he attempts to kill Jackie, he gets more pissed off that Jackie is taking revenge. When the two fight, he alternates between trying and threatening to kill Jackie and begging him to let him live.
* FatBastardEvilUncle: Is refered to as "Uncle Paulie", although he is acutally a cousin to one of Jackie's parents.
* FatBastard: Is on the larger side, and among the biggest scumbag in the game.




to:

* WouldHurtAChild: Blows up and orphanage, killing some of the children and severally burning and injuring the survivors. Judging by his taunting phone call to Jackie, he has a pretty vicious attitude about it. At another point, one of his mooks can be heard telling the story of how he rigged a school bus to crash because one of the children's parents crossed him.

* TortureTechnician: In the game, he tortures Jackie for information after capturing him, [[ColdBloodedTorture perforating his face with an electric drill]]. Apparently, he's done this ''many'' times before, and he's had time to make it his specialty.
