* {{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.

* 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.

* CripplingCastration: In "That Yellow Bastard", Hartigan's EstablishingCharacterMoment is removing the gun and penis off a pedophile (who happens to be the only son of a powerful US Senator, landing Hartigan in prison for years) to save his victim Nancy. Years later, Hartigan believes Nancy to be in danger and looks for her, trailed by a grotesque little man who stinks and whose skin is bright yellow (in a black-and-white comic). It turns out the yellow man is the Senator's son, whose appearance is due to the multiple treatments needed to grow a new penis (the Senator needed grandchildren). Hartigan defeats him and once again, removes his weapons--both of them, with his bare hands this time--before [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge savagely pounding his head into the floor until there isn't a head anymore]].
