* ActorAllusion:
** When one cop advises another to kill Hartigan without hesitation, they're quickly dispatched and Hartigan quips "Good advice". In ''Film/DieHard'', a terrorist who tells John [=McClane=] to kill without hesitation is offed, with [=McClane=] snarking "Thanks for the advice". Both played by Creator/BruceWillis, lying on his back and shooting upwards both times. Frank Miller even said that he thought of that very scene from ''Die Hard'' when he drew that scenario in "That Yellow Bastard". Little did he know…
** In the film of ''A Dame to Kill For'', the way Hartigan's ghost talks to Nancy is very reminiscent of Creator/BruceWillis's role in ''Film/TheSixthSense''.
** Creator/ChristopherMeloni playing a cop with marital problems, anger issues, has a dim view of rape and eventually JumpsOffTheSlipperySlope? Gee, [[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit where have we seen this before?]]
** Gail calls Dwight 'Lancelot.' Around this time Creator/CliveOwen had also starred in ''Film/KingArthur'', though playing Arthur and not Lancelot.
** Creator/JamieChung takes up a sword to become a fearsome warrior in the second movie, around the time she was doing it in [[Series/OnceUponATime another show]].
** Creator/MichaelMadsen amusingly shows up right after someone else gets their [[Film/ReservoirDogs ear blown off]]. Although this time ''he's'' the cop.

* TheVillainKnowsWhereYouLive: The assistant district attorney finally gets Marv to confess to the murders actually committed by Kevin and Cardinal Roark (and their murders, which he was guilty of) by turning off the recorder and showing him a picture of his mother in the crosshairs of a sniper rifle. Marv breaks his arm in three places, but signs.

* IgnoreTheFanservice: When Ava Lord of ''A Dame to Kill For'' allies with Wallenquist, he tells her, "I'll warn you once and only once, Mrs. Lord — do not flirt with me. I have no use for your charms." Interestingly, despite being the most powerful crime lord in the city and having a number of drop-dead gorgeous women who work for him such as the assassin [[EvilRedhead Deliah]], Herr Wallenquist is never shown being involved with any woman (or man, for that matter), implying that he's completely uninterested in sex in general.

* EvilRedhead: One of the female assassins in the Wallenquist mob is a FemmeFatale redhead named Deliah. Much like her colleague Blue Eyes, [[SplashOfColor that trait is highlighted]] in the otherwise black and white comic.

The other sequel will be centered around ''Hell and Back''. Both films were originally scheduled for a 2008 release, but were in DevelopmentHell for seven years until [[http://www.flickeringmyth.com/2012/04/sin-city-2-is-go-at-last.html 2012, when they were]] SavedFromDevelopmentHell. Sadly, the recent deaths of two important actors - Creator/BrittanyMurphy (Shelly) and Creator/MichaelClarkeDuncan (Manute) - and the disappearance of Devon Aoki (Miho) from acting caused [[TheOtherDarrin some difficulties]]. (Duncan and Aoki have been replaced by Dennis Haysbert and [[http://cdn.fansided.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/229/files/2014/07/Sin-City-A-Dame-to-Kill-For-Miko-590x900.jpg Jamie Chung]] respectively, with Jeremy Piven taking over from Creator/MichaelMadsen as Bob).
