Heck, we don't even learn ''his real name.'' Same goes for the New Order; we never learn why they're all motivated to work for a serial killer. He and his gang may as well have popped in out of thin air so Cobretti could have criminals evil enough to slay by the dozen.

* StrawNewsMedia: The whiny, liberal reporters who hassle Cobra after he guns down a criminal during a standoff. None of the journalists seem to care that said criminal had taken hostages and was threatening to kill them all.

* DisproportionateRetribution: In order to silence one witness who saw them, the Night Slasher's New Order goes on a week-long explosive rampage in two cities, in broad daylight and in full view of hundreds of new witnesses. Of course, it doesn't really matter in the end, since [[CowboyCop Cobra]] happens to be one of those witnesses.
