* {{Retirony}}: Deliberately averted by Eddie, who starts the film with two weeks before retirement and has no ambition except to [[GenreSavvy keep his head down and avoid any trouble]], to the point where a rookie who's assigned to him calls him out for being a coward. [[spoiler: Inverted when said rookie is unceremoniously killed off screen in his first week on the job, while Eddie is the only one of the three main characters to survive to the end.]]

* AnyoneCanDie: [[spoiler:Out of the four lead characters, Eddie is the only one who survives]].



* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Eddie strangles a man to death with a ''zip tie''.
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Tango. At the beginning of the movie, he complains that he's tired of being undercover because other cops mistaken him for being a thug simply for being "a black man in a black car." At the end of the film, he gets killed for that very same reason: Rosario accidentally thought he was a thug shooting another person in the middle of the street, so he shot him to death]].
* DeathByMaterialism: [[spoiler:Sal, [[RuleOfSymbolism to the point where his death is almost symbolic]]. He gets shot in the back while he's busy trying to steal as much money as possible from a drug dealer's apartment, oblivious to everything around him. And then he slowly bleeds out on the floor, with a pile of money scattered around his body]].
* DiabolusExMachina: [[spoiler:Sal's death]]. A random guy (presumably a drug dealer) sees him walking into an apartment complex, then a few minutes later, [[spoiler:he randomly shows up and kills Sal]]. And then he runs away. GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere much?



* KarmaHoudini: The man who [[spoiler:shot and killed Sal]] runs away and presumably disappears before Rosario or any other cops even find out who he is.



* OnlyAFleshWound: Even after Eddie shoots a man in the chest, he still has enough power to [[spoiler:attack and nearly kill Eddie]]. TruthInTelevision though, as some suspects have shrugged off seemingly fatal gunshot wounds.



* Retirony: Deliberately averted by Eddie, who starts the film with two weeks before retirement and has no ambition except to [[GenreSavvy keep his head down and avoid any trouble]], to the point where a rookie who's assigned to him calls him out for being a coward. [[spoiler: Inverted when said rookie is unceremoniously killed off screen in his first week on the job, while Eddie is the only one of the three main characters to survive to the end.]]
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Detective Butler aka. "Tango [[spoiler: guns down an already wounded Red in the street, emptying a whole clip into him (with a Jericho 941 no less.) Then pops another clip in to empty it as well. He's shot before he could though. ]]
