* BadassNormal: The Kingpin has no superhuman powers. However, he is incredibly strong and durable, possessing remarkable strength concealed by his FatBastard appearance. 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.

* Foil: Not as on-the-nose as most other examples, but he's one for Matt. Both have experienced tragedy and loss, to the point that the very ''idea'' of being happy seems foreign to them, and they're both incredibly scared of losing what they love. When Matt loses these things, he picks himself up and tries to be the best man he can. when Fisk loses what he loves, he sinks further into crime.

* ItsPersonal: Both Fisk and Murdock can go to pretty extreme lengths to get at each other. Both have went out of their way to ruin each other's businesses, several times. Fisk has set Matt up with girlfriends who were secretly assassins after Daredevil; Matt made Fisk miss his own wife's funeral; Fisk has Matt's friends beaten up; Matt beats up Fisk...it goes on. On at least two occasions Kingpin was on the verge of getting his old empire back, and Matt stopped him by ''taking it for himself''. Both were WhatTheHellHero moments -- he did it mainly just to screw Fisk over.

* UnderestimatingBadassery: Spider-Man, Daredevil and other heroes have made the mistake in their first encounters with the Kingpin in thinking this would be a slow and fat guy they could handle easily. They quickly realized the "fat" is muscle backed by expert martial arts.
** Many a super-villain has assumed that a man without powers can easily be beaten, not grasping Fisk's ruthlessness and ChessMaster attitude runs circles around them.
** The Kingpin actually fell into this himself when he treated a coming conflict with Hydra as if it was just another gang war...and in the span of five minutes, Hydra had emptied his bank accounts, destroyed most of his fronts across the city and sent a helicopter gunship to blow apart Fisk's office.
-->'''Garrote''': You are merely a criminal, Mr. Fisk while we...we are conquerors.

* DisportionateRetribution: Fisk takes personal slights to a new degree. When a rookie waiter at his favorite restaurant handed him a check (unaware Fisk is never charged for his meals), the Kingpin tells an underling to hunt the guy down and make sure the hand that held the check is wrecked beyond repair.
