Added DiffLines:

* RoguesGallery: Given his usual M.O., Frank doesn't really have a lot of recurring villains, and even many who have had more than one appearance tend to eventually meet their end at his hands. Still, he's racked up quite an impressive number of enemies who have lasted over several issues (and in a few cases, at least two arcs); the most long-lasting of these is Jigsaw, who Frank has often chosen to keep alive on the grounds that the disfigured assassin is more of a danger to criminals than to innocents. Other villains of special note who have had repeat appearances in the 616 continuity include Saracen, Damage, Thorn, Rosalie Carbone, Rapido, Ma Gnucci, the Russian, Recoil, Bushwacker, Sniper, Blackwell, the Elite, and Johnny Nightmare. The MAX continuity gives us Nicky Cavella, Rawlins and Barracuda.

* IrishExplosivesExpert: The "Kitchen Irish" arc has one ... though his face is mangled from a bomb that blew up in his face, so either he had a bad day or the "Expert" part of the trope name doesn't quite fit.

* TheGreatestStyle: PlayedForLaughs in one story where a martial arts assassin is sent to take out the punisher. After commenting on how many styles the guy's mastered, Frank introduces him to one doesn't know: CarFu.

* AuthorAppeal: Garth Ennis' run prior to the MAX series. His distaste for Catholicism is shown with the psycho priest, while his dislike for popular masked super heroes is shown in a fight with Frank vs. The Russian where ComicBook/SpiderMan steps in; all Spidey does is [[TheWorfEffect get the shit kicked out of him]] and act like a human shield for Frank. Wolverine gets even worse treatment, as he's written like a goofy buffoon who Punisher unloads all manner of weaponry on since he'll just regenerate. Surprisingly, Daredevil of all people is given a good deal more respect.

** When Frank walks in on Anti-Venom busting a Mexican crime syndicate in ''New Ways to Live'', they team up until he realizes Anti-Venom is his old adversary [[Comicbook/{{Venom}} Eddie Brock]]. Castle promptly shoots Anti-Venom -- who was in the process of thanking him -- [[ChunkySalsaRule point-blank in the face with a shotgun]], and when the last surviving thug takes the ex-drug addict Anti-Venom had been using as an informant hostage, Frank coldly states, "That's not a girl... [[ItIsDehumanizing it's]] a junkie" and takes aim, causing Anti-Venom to pull his head back together, ''severely'' pissed off, and smash Frank through a wall.

Frank reluctantly agrees to a truce, but spends the rest of the series trying to catch Eddie with his symbiote retracted, rebuking Eddie pointing out they're NotSoDifferent, and makes no secret of his intent to kill Eddie the moment he lets his guard down.
