* HateSink: The majority of the characters would be [[EvilVersusEvil villains in any other story]], but of the main cast the one that fits this trope best is Remi Rome. He's the last of the Minutemen introduced and has the least panel-time of any of them apart from Milo, who dies after one arc, but he spends most of it being a [[{{Wangst}} whiny]], [[GreenEyedMonster jealous]], [[HairTriggerTemper short-fused]] [[PsychopathicManchild little sociopath]] [[spoiler: who has no problem killing children and his own allies]]. The nicest things you can say about the guy are that [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes he loves his family]] and [[EvenEvilHasStandards hates pedophiles]]. Even less likable are Anwar Madrid, the Trust's resident [[DirtyCoward craven coward]], and {{Arc Villain}}s Nino Rego and Leon.



* MrsRobinson: Dizzy's gorgeous mother Bonita, who regularly embarrasses her daughter by picking up younger men. Dizzy claims they're close in age, implying she was the result of a TeenPregnancy.



* NewMeat: Dizzy and Loop.

* OutsideContextVillain: Will Slaughter. Him coming out of retirement heralds the beginning of the end, as this was the one thing neither Augustus nor Graves saw coming.

Soon enough, the focus of ''100 Bullets'' expands to include Agent Graves himself, as it is revealed that he does benefit from these acts of revenge. Sometimes it's because he wants a particular person killed for his own ends, and sometimes he just wants to see his unique brand of justice carried out. It just so happens that Graves is the leader of an elite group of {{badass}}es known as The Minutemen, who acted as the police force for The Trust, [[ConspiracyTheory a group of thirteen powerful families that control the United States]]. Graves and The Minutemen left The Trust after being told that [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness they are no longer necessary]] by order of The Trust's leader, Augustus Medici. The Trust plotted to kill them all, but thanks to Graves' inside man Mr. Shepherd, The Minutemen were spared and given new lives - along with a healthy dose of FakeMemories and LaserGuidedAmnesia.

* RedHeadedHero: While he's certainly not a ''hero'', the red-haired Wylie Times is probably the most sympathetic and likable of the Minutemen, and he's stated in-universe to be the most proficient in battle.

Added DiffLines:

* HandWave: There's very little explanation given for the actual mechanics behind Graves' "game", leaving a few lingering questions as to how he manages to pull off everything that he does with the attachés. In particular: How does he always manage to find the culprits behind so many different crimes, even when there were no witnesses? How does he still have enough influence to let recipients get away with murder when he's no longer a member of the Trust? And if ''he'' can always find evidence to prove targets guilty of their crimes, then why do they so often [[KarmaHoudini go unpunished by the police]]? The official explanation, given near the end of the series, is that [[spoiler: he knows a well-connected arms dealer who can pull strings with various government agencies]]. It's not a flawless explanation--but considering there wouldn't be a story without the attaché plot device, it's forgivable.

* BodyguardBabes: Nino Rego, the mobster who had Loop's father killed, has an attractive KickChick named Tommi Yi as a bodyguard. Megan, who's a babe herself, also has one named Kate, who's one of [[DirtyOldMan Sigmar Rhone]]'s numerous mistresses [[spoiler: and dies with him at the hands of the Minutemen]].


Added DiffLines:

* WildCard: Lono is the only Minuteman to have not been a part of the Atlantic City job and thus avoided being deprogrammed, allowing him to be an independent player in the game. He [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder changes allegiances like most people change shirts]] and always leaves a long trail of bodies in his wake.

** Augustus Medici's name suggests authority - Augustus, for the first Roman Emperor, and Medici, the most powerful family in Renaissance Italy. The RealLife Medicis fit the profile of the sort of families that founded the Trust, so it's entirely possible Augustus is descended from them.
** The minor character of Sergeant ''Dirtz'', a [[DirtyCop dirty prison guard]].
