* {{Badass}}:
** Lonergan. The movie opens with him calmly and easily killing a trio of bounty hunters while completely unarmed.
** Dolarhyde is an old, grizzled war veteran who proves he's still got some spunk left in him.
** Doc becomes one by the end of the movie.
** Ella shows she is one by the end of the movie.

* ImmuneToBullets: The aliens' exoskeletons shrug off regular period hanguns like they're nothing, [[RealityEnsues though they still are reasonably affected by the recoil.]] Shotguns actually seem to wound them slightly, but their main problem is still the recoil of ''those'' bullets - Jake uses this to great effect in the climax.
