* {{BFG}}: The quad barrel rocket launcher, as shown in the page picture. It's a [[OneSceneWonder Two Scene Wonder]], but it's one of the most memorable things of this movie.

* BullyingADragon: Sully mocks and taunts Matrix as he's about to board the plane. His joking is what prompted the famous "You're a funny guy, Sully. I like you." line.



-> '''Kirby:''' Leave anything for us?\\
'''Matrix:''' Just bodies.



* DeadpanSnarker: Matrix

to:

* DeadpanSnarker: MatrixYou know the "You're a funny guy, Sully. I like you." Line? That comes right after Sully taunted Matrix about his daughter being potentially gang-raped. Though the context has been lost in MemeticMutation, Matrix was '''not serious''' at all.


Added DiffLines:

* FauxAffablyEvil: Sully is very chatty with Matrix as he's being walked through the airport and slips him some money for a few beers. At first, the audience may be forgiven in thinking that Sully is a really decent PunchClockVillain who isn't so bad. But then he tells Matrix the beers are so that Arius's men can have "[[IHaveYouNowMyPretty more time with [his] daughter]]".

* {{Badass}}
** John Matrix, to [[RuleOfCool absolutely ridiculous]] levels.
** Bennett deserves mention too, for not only being the only person in the film to put up a decent fight against Matrix, but for getting him ''on the ropes'' in their final battle (though Matrix ''was'' wounded before that fight started).
** Bennett's actor, Vernon Wells, also qualifies. He replaced the original Bennett who was fired on set for "not being menacing enough". When Arnold first saw him, he was not impressed. So Wells absolutely went for him in their first scene. Schwarzenegger demanded that Wells use a rubber knife in all subsequent takes.

* [[IHaveYourWife I Have Your Daughter]]: The bad guys kidnap Matrix's daughter to blackmail him into working for them.

* [[IHaveYourWife I Have Your Daughter]]: The bad guys kidnap Matrix's daughter to blackmail him into working for them. It instead inspires him to murder them all. So, backfired a bit.

* ShoutOut: At least three of Arnie's lines are things he said in ''[[Franchise/{{Terminator}} The Terminator]]''. His one-word answer, "Wrong," before blasting away his first {{mook|s}}, his CatchPhrase "I'll be back" (of course), and the line, "Fuck you, asshole!" This was his first big movie after ''The Terminator'' and his first big movie with more than five lines.

Added DiffLines:

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates a 7, primarily because of John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger) slitting a soldier's bare throat in close-up, scalping another with a thrown buzz-saw blade, and slicing off yet another soldier's arm with a machete (with blood oozing out, especially in the director's cut), and a blood-spurting squib or two.

* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Averted. Matrix has no problem killing someone, be it a random henchman or a main villain.
