* CrapsackWorld: Whilst it's eventually revealed that there's a genuine {{curse}} on the region where the Goon hangs out which is at least partially to blame, the Goon's world is ''seriously'' messed up. There's an evil necromancer running around who wants to cause a ZombieApocalypse, {{Mad Scientist}}s like Dr. Alloy running rampant, a "swine revolution" has made pork meat a hot commodity analogous to liquor during Prohibition, a crazed airforce of communist cephalopods wants to rule the world, hobos are gibberish-spouting cannibals, and basically all manner of murderers, maniacs and monsters thrive.

* DrivingQuestion: What happened in Chinatown? Eventually explained in the titular arc: [[spoiler: years ago, after growing to adulthood, the Goon met Isabella, a girl he had always loved back in the Circus, as the slave of a Chinese mob-boss in the local Chinatown, and eventually bartered with the boss for her freedom. He has the time of his life courting her, falling deeply in love and even considering giving up the mobster lifestyle so he can have a decent life with her. And then she breaks his heart by telling him to his face that she "doesn't want him". Blinded by grief, the Goon goes to confront the Chinese mob-boss, whose gang has been pushing the Goon's gang out of the city, only for the mob boss to turn out to be a shapeshifting dragon. In the fight, the Goon gets his characteristic facial scars and dead eye after the dragon slashes his face and then burns his body. Isabella leaves town without saying a word, refusing to even go and see Goon in the hospital, with an indignant Frankie warning her never to come back.]]

* FromBadToWorse:
** After the Goon's football career was ended when his team was gunned down by the Black Hand, the city's enraged occupants rose up and massacred the two gangs that comprised it. Unfortunately, this left a power vacuum that the Nameless Preacher was quick to fill -- using the bodies of the former gangsters to bulk up his zombie army in the process.
** Eventually, the Goon/Buzzard team-up makes it impossible for the Zombie Priest to get the corpses he needs to produce zombies... so, he gambles all his remaining forces on securing the corpse of a pregnant woman, which he then reanimates and mutates via a BlackMagic ritual to create "Mother Corpse", who constantly produces horrifically deformed demon-zombie babies, giving him an even stronger army than before.

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: As the story uses a setting vaguely reminiscent of the 1920s-50s, both Goon and Frankie (particularly Frankie) can say stuff that's rather politically incorrect by modern standards.

* SureLetsGoWithThat: In an early issue, federal agents investigating Labrazzio uncover one of the Goon's most closely-kept secrets. In a dramatic climactic scene, they confront the Goon with what they've discovered, and announce the obvious conclusion: that all the evidence they've uncovered was planted by the Goon to send them off on a false trail. The Goon concurs with their conclusion, while making a mental note to destroy the evidence before somebody smarter finds it.

* CreateYourOwnVillain: Inverted. The Zombie Priest created the Buzzard in a case of MagicMisfire; the Buzzard had a gun to the Nameless Preacher's face and so he panicked and went with his first impulse, which was to zap Buzzard with the zombifying spell. This instead turned him into an effectively immortal necrophage with a particular grudge against the Nameless Preacher.
