* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: When Mr. Fear tries to frame Karen Page for murder, Matt proves her innocence. The jury is ready to vote her not guilty, but Mr. Fear has a backup plan. One of the jurors will release a vial of Mr. Fear's gas to make the other jurors find Karen guilty, but the treacherous juror has a heart attack before he can release the gas. The treacherous juror is replaced by an alternate, who joins with the rest of the jury in finding Karen not guilty. Later, Fisk meets Matt, explaining that he arranged for the treacherous juror to have a heart attack, and that he'll live, albeit with a pacemaker. Matt asks why he did it, and Fisk replies with this trope.

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Despite what he looks like, Kingpin is NOT obese, his body is nearly pure muscle, and his strength is as close to human perfection as you can get without the Super Soldier Serum. He even has a vault that only he can open, because it doesnt have a combination lock, the door is just so heavy that no unpowered human can budge it.

* DoesntLikeGuns: Well, he never seems to use one personally, which is odd for a mobster, prefering to kill people with his bare hands. He is known to have a laser blaster concealed in his cane that he has used in a few stories, but this was phased out as he moved on to being Daredevils enemy.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He loves his wife and son, despite the fact that both tried to kill him on at least one occassion. Sadly, [[spoiler: both came to tragic ends.]] He eventually found peace again with a woman in Spain whom he married and adopted her children as his own, [[ShaggyDogStory only for them to be murdered by The Hand]], leading to the Kingpin returning to crime.

* CurbStompBattle: Kingpin had always assumed that since he ''usually'' fought near-equally with Spider-Man, that he was capable of eventually taking the web-head down. And then he was stupid enough to have Spider-Man's aunt shot "as a message." Spider-Man invaded the prison where [[MightAsWellnotBeInPrisonAtAll was living like a king at the top of the status-pyramid]], and confronted the Kingpin. After sitting through the Kingpin's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, Spider-Man proceeded to kick the ever-living shit out of the Fat Man. The Kingpin never laid a finger on Spider-Man, and Spidey made it ''crystal clear'' to everyone watching the fight that the Kingpin never had a chance at all of doing so.

* BadassNormal: The Kingpin has no superhuman powers. However, he is incredibly strong and durable, possessing remarkable strength concealed by his FatBastard appearance. He is a master of jujitsu, hapkido, and unsurprisngly, sumo wrestling. He has been shown to be strong enough to hurl people across a room, rip limbs from people (demonstrated under a handshake), crush a man's skull with his bare hands, leave imprints in concrete walls after punching them and even crush one of Spider-Man's web shooters without making any great effort. One Spider-Man comic also showed that the door to his private vault doesn't have a lock. It's just so damn heavy that no other non-powered person could move it.

* ManipulativeBastard: Yeah, he's good at this. To cut a long story short, he was a significant threat for Spider-Man, but he truly began to show how terrifyingly good at manipulating people he was once he became the main villain in the Daredevil comics. In the "Born Again" storyline by neo-noir comics master FrankMiller, the Kingpin finds out that Matt Murdock is Daredevil and begins a months-long plot to systematically destroy his life before finally trying to kill him, putting Daredevil through the trial of his life. He has his hands in every cookie jar, has a general in his pocket, and [[{{ParanoiaFuel}} has spies]] ''everywhere.'' Even after he's jailed, he proves very savvy at manipulating people from behind bars.
