* NotReallyABirthScene: Blankman and his cousin Kevin help a woman trapped in an elevator to give birth. All three are screaming loudly as this happens, though. The woman, for obvious reasons, Kevin, because when he offered his hand to the woman, she grabbed his crotch instead and squeezed as hard as she could, and Blankman because, well... he's a bit of a dork who doesn't really know what's going on.

* BigWhat: Kevin's reaction when Darrly informs him that his suit wasn't bulletproofed-- right after he finished goading Minelli's thugs into shooting him.

The cast is soon rounded by a [[LoveInterests love interest]] to both brothers, television reporter Kimberly Johns (Robin Givens). The press dubs Darryl as "Blankman." At first, Blankman is merely helping civilians and facing various thugs, but then takes his first high-profile case: Minelli's gang has taken [[spoiler:Mayor Harris]] hostage in a bank, threatening to detonate explosives if their terms are not met. Blankman intervenes, sends the gang running...[[spoiler:but fails to disarm the explosives. The popular Mayor is killed, the bank is destroyed and Blankman barely escapes with his life]].

* DamselInDistress: Kimberly. And it is only when she is in danger that both brothers get serious.



* {{Deconstruction}}: Blankman, like ''KickAss'' many years after it, shows how much danger a person can put himself through if they decide to go fighting crime without any formal training. Without Kevin, Darryl would have been dead during the first night.
