* CastSpeciation: Even if some members have individual gimmicks, the team have many of them with similar roles. Yin Yang and Toll Road share the expertise of hand-to-hand fighting, a field in which Gunnar also excels; most of them carry big guns, not limited to their official artilleryman Hale; and, of course, most members could qualify as the big player of a smaller team.

* PsychoPartyMember: He is not the only who looks a bit off his rocker in this team, but his lust for violence and fighting arguably makes him the most vicious on the battefield.

* UnskilledButStrong: Subverted. While in the first moments of his fight with Yin Yang seems that he is little more than an unskilled brawler who happens to be very burly, he soon reveals he knows very well how to use his strength size. His strikes also seem very precise and karate-like, evidencing an orthodox martial arts training not unlike Yin Yang'. This is also a trait carried from the actor, who is a real life karate champion.



* KnifeNut: Not to the same extent as Christmas, but he has his moments.

* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Subverted. He acknowledges that killing is the only thing he is good at, but his obvious enthusiasm for entering the team in order to fight again downplays a lot his possible reluctance for it.

* PsychoPartyMember: Unlike other team members who see their job as a vigilante task at the best or a fountain of thrill at the worst, Galgo claims to be in there just for the mere act of killing. Then again, given the circunstances of his claim, it's not clear if it is the literal truth or just a desperate way to describe his own talents. Considering his background, it might be even a sign that he is not completely on his rocker.

* TerroristsWithoutACause: Zigzagged. He seems very interested in selling the plutonium quickly and for a large amount of money, but never speaks of what he would plan to do with such money, and expresses excitement at what a potential 'game changer' introducing a large amount of such merchandise to the global power struggle would be.

* KnifeNut: he's particularly skilled with [[Film/{{Blade}} blades]], describing himself as "[[JustForPun the knife before Christmas]]." He was also apparently skilled enough with them to be capable of giving himself a clean shave, dry, without a mirror, using Gunnar's massive Bowie knife. While on a plane.

A tough close-up combatant with a cauliflower ear and intellectual pretensions, Toll Road may actually be the best fighter on the team.

* TheCasanova: Mainly implied. But the first time we see Tool, he is accompanied by a gorgeous, buxom blonde young enough to be his daughter. And based on comments made by his friends he's good at seducing women... though not so good at keeping them.
