* In one the best examples on could ever find of this trope, Martix fights an entire army while standing out in the open, yet none of the enemy soldiers are able to shoot him.
* There is also the part where Matrix jumps out of a moving plane hundreds of feet in the air and is unharmed simply because he lands in a few feet of water.

* RefugeInAudacity: You might think it's ridiculous to be able to happen to find some of the weapons Matrix finds in the army surplus store. The notable thing is that he breaks into the back room, where they store weapons that you'd need a license to even possess. [[FridgeBrilliance Admittedly, Matrix couldn't exactly wait the 24-48 hours for the police check on his license...]]

* BloodKnight: Bennett. One of the reasons Matrix threw him out of his unit was because he liked killing too much.

** Sully just happened to park his car very close to the car belonging to the totally random flight attendant he tries to hit on.

** Matrix forcibly tries to get Cindy to help him after explaining his situation by having her put on a honeypot routine in an attempt to Sully, however Cindy doesn't believe Matrix's outlandish (yet true) story like any normal person would (Seriously, how often does something as crazy as being forced to kill a South American president or risk losing your daughter happen in RealLife?) and the first chance she gets, she asks a security guard to help her from Matrix, blowing his cover; it's not until Sully recognizes John and starts shooting at him that Cindy believes him and tries to help him.
