* {{Jerkass}}: One should not expect to encounter gentlemen in a film about career criminals. Varying cases can be made for most of the cast, with some characters standing out as sociopaths. Ace is a complex example who has genuine AffablyEvil moments.

* RightUnderTheirNoses: Early on, we follow an ordinary looking man in a suit walk into the casino's counting room, fill up a briefcase with money and calmly walk out again. The narration informs us that what we've just watched was essentially a casino heist.

* RightUnderTheirNoses: Early on, we follow an ordinary looking man in a suit walk into the casino's counting room, fill up a briefcase with money and calmly walk out again. The narration informs us that what we've just watched was essentially a casino heist. Subverted in that it was a heist authorized by the Mob. It's noted everyone in the counting room is deliberately looking the other way to make sure they ''didn't'' see it.

* InMediasRes: The movie opens with [[spoiler:Sam's car being blown up]], an event which happens about 2/3 of the way into the film, then flashes back to the events that lead up to the incident, before continuing from that point.

*** Late in the film this is Sam's attitude towards Nicky in general, as his constant crime sprees are drawing unwanted police attention. Eventually the mob bosses think so, too.

Added DiffLines:

* JustAGangster: Nicky, as mentioned under AtLeastIAdmitIt, thinks that the sort of old school thuggery that he employs is ultimately the heart of what being a gangster is, and has no use for the semi-legit, more white collar sort of crime that Ace and the bosses are converting to. (Possibly because it's fairly obvious that [[NoPlaceForMeThere he would never fit in with such a plan]].) [[spoiler:It results in Nicky being brutally murdered when he won't change and his exploits threaten everyone involved. Ace, on the other hand, rolls with the changing times and lands on his feet.]]
