Added DiffLines:

* BodyguardCrush: Subverted in the case of [[FemmeFatale Ava Lord]] and her loyal-unto-death bodyguard [[TheDragon Manute]]. Dwight interrogates him some point before the final confrontation, but Manute denies it when Dwight asserts that she must have seduced him to get his loyalty. Manute simply admires her [[TheSociopath cold-bloodedness]] in some manner of AdmiringTheAbomination.

Added DiffLines:

* KinkyCuffs: Subverted when Wallace takes a beautiful blue-eyed woman to a hotel room after he spent the past several issues ignoring her every advance. She's quite surprised by the handcuffs, but it turns out he only wanted to restrain her. He'd already long figured out that [[TheVamp she was an assassin sent to kill him]].

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Creator/JessicaAlba signed on not knowing that Nancy dances completely naked. She asked for the nudity to be removed. Creator/RobertRodriguez and Creator/FrankMiller agreed, feeling there was no need for it.

Added DiffLines:

* SexForServices: Leibowitz has to force a false confession out of framed cop John Hartigan, but after beating him for several days he starts complaining that his back is getting sore, so instead brings in a prostitute and offers her to Hartigan to see if the carrot works better. She's not that happy with the whole thing, since Hartigan is accused of being a pedophile serial killer.

Added DiffLines:

* RabidCop: Even the Basin City cops who aren't [[DirtyCop actively corrupt]] or [[TheBadGuysAreCops on the payroll of the bad guys]] are usually pretty violent. For example, Lt. Liebowitz is perfectly fine with beating Hartigan right back into a coma in order to get a phoney confession from him (Hartigan still refuses), and he deals with the Colonel by just shooting him in face, though that guy ''really'' had it coming.

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenVillain: For most of the original comic, Marv has no idea who Goldie's killers are until he tracks down first Kevin, then Cardinal Roark. In the film, they do briefly show a shot of Kevin entering the room where he killed her, but he's a complete stranger all the same.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Dark, gritty, and ridiculously over-the-top with its cynicism, but there's a bit of humanity within that puts a sliver of idealism in there.

* {{Lolicon}}: Junior is a particularly disturbing example of one of these, in that he likes to slash his victims to ribbons once he's done raping them, and he LovesToHearThemScream. It's quite telling that when he gets his hands on Nancy again, he says that she's "too old for him", despite her being nineteen years old at this point.

Added DiffLines:

* YoureNotMyType: Subverted by Roark Jr., a pedophile serial killer who could only get it up from [[LovesTheSoundOfScreaming hearing his victims scream]]. When he captures Hartigan and Nancy (who almost became one of his victims years ago), he smirks that she's no longer his "type" [[ShesAllGrownUp now that she's an adult]], but he's willing to make an exception to get revenge on both of them.

* CopKiller: Dwight kills his girlfriend's abusive ex-boyfriend, realizing too late that he's actually a cop. If the body is found, the fragile truce between the corrupt cops and the BandOfBrothels will be broken in the cops' favor, so they need to disfigure and get rid of it.
