* FreudianTrio: Haverman, Alvarez, and Rice fall under this trope as the Id, Ego, and Superego, respectively, in terms of their impulsive behavior, [[RefugeInAudacity as they select some very public San Antonio landmarks in which they conduct their dirty spy business]]. Haverman is the most reckless, while Alvarez falls somewhere in between him and Rice, who is the most discreet (be it ever so slightly.) [[spoiler: Not surprisingly, this is precisely the order in which they are killed. Haverman is killed in a car wreck when he carelessly drives the van into a jewelry store [[HoistByHisOwnPetard after intending to run down and kill Davey]]; Alvarez is accidentally killed by Rice during the aforementioned "[[DeadlyDodging Crossfire]] [[BatmanGambit Gambit]]" when Rice tries to shoot Davey instead; and finally, after picking up the gun from Alvarez's corpse, Davey kills the remaining spy out of rage when backed into a wall when he thinks said remaining spy has killed Jack Flack]].

* GrowingUpSucks: For Jack at least. When the very bloody implications of actual gunplay sink in for Davey & [[MoralDissonance he no longer wants to "play"]], Jack laments that [[LikeFatherLikeSon his father]] eventually stopped wanting to play CowboysAndIndians too

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Jack urges Davey to shoplift a Cloak & Dagger game cartridge from The Game Keeper to give the spies in exchange for Kim rather than the real thing, and surely enough, the "Game Keeper" label on the back not only tips off Rice that it's a faux cartridge, but it ends up leading him right to Morris, who has the real cartridge.

* NotSoImaginaryFriend: Several scenes suggest that Jack may not be imaginary at all. In several instances, he interacts with the environment and is aware of things that Davey wouldn't be. In a late scene, one of the assassins seems to see Jack. And in his final scene, his dialogue suggests that he was also Davey's father's friend and that whatever he is follows some sort of rules.

* ParentalSubstitute: Davey's military air traffic controller father doesn't spend much time with him due to work commitments, so Davey has invented Jack Flack as a replacement father figure.

* NotSoImaginaryFriend: In a late scene, one of the assassins seems to see Jack, implying that he might not be imaginary after all.
