* MemeticMutation: Discussed at one point, as a kid explains [[ZeroWing "All Your Base"]] to his mother. Although [[FridgeLogic why a mom would just now be asking about a ten-year old meme, to a son about as old as said meme]], is another question entirely.[[invoked]]

* [[TheRival The Rivals]]: Officers Hunsaker and Mangold, to Paul and Jimmy. It's their investigation that the opening screwup ruins, and there's obviously some rivalry there throughout the whole movie. [[spoiler: They don't let it get in the way of their jobs, though; they vouch for Paul and Jimmy when it turns out their interference saves their lives.]]

Not to be confused with the French movie ''LeSamourai'', which was released under the title ''Cop Out'' in some parts of the US. Also not connected to WriterCopOut.

* AdvertisedExtra: While by no means an extra, the trailer makes it look as if Seann William Scott is one of the stars of the film, while he is really a supporting character.

%%* ClusterFBomb* ClusterFBomb: Seeing as how it's a Kevin Smith movie, this is a given (although Smith didn't actually write the film).

* %% ClusterFBomb * CowboyCop: Both Paul and Jimmy. While Jimmy is pretty much the classic stereotype for this sort of character, Paul goes along readily with Jimmy's style and occasionally takes the lead.

* {{Geek}}: Po' Boy, the leader of the drug cartel looking to expand in New York City, is a huge baseball fan. Also, Officer Hunsaker is really into boots.

* CloudCuckooLander: Dave, the guy who steals Jimmy's baseball card and Paul's favorite gun. Played a bit more realistically, as it's shown just how freaking annoying someone like this would be to deal with. * ClusterFBomb

Deleted tropes moved to trivia
* ActorAllusion: Paul's interrogation "technique" involves quoting classic movies, which Jimmy usually rolls his eyes to while naming the movie. When Paul says [[Film/DieHard "Yippie-ki-yay, motherfucker!"]], Jimmy goes, "I've never seen that movie."

* ExecutiveMeddling: Inverted. Kevin Smith originally wanted to call the movie "A Couple of Dicks", which the executives shot down. When he called it a cop out, they told him that was a better name, which he agreed with and decided that in this case they were smarter than him.
