!!Both movies have examples of:

* BaldOfAwesome: Chev. Not surprising, since he's ... ah, you know.

exaAwesome:mples of:



* CombatPragmatist: Chev prefers to simply beat everyone to death if he isn't in direct possession of a gun.



* {{Determinator}}: Chelios is the living embodiment of determination. He not only displays new levels of badassery with absolutely every move he does, he does it while poison is slowly killing his body or when his heart has been taken out.



* {{Jerkass}}: Chev Chelios, in both movies - although occasional, fairly feeble attempts are made at portraying him as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, he seems by turns either genuinely uncaring or vaguely amused by much of the havoc he causes.
** To make up for it, pretty much everyone he's up against also embodies this trope.
** It's also thoroughly lampshaded in the second movie with a huge segment of "Fuck you, Chelios!" flashbacks going all the way back to his childhood, in which he's on a Maury-like show getting yelled at for being a little shit.

* MadeOfIron: Chev Chelios, in both movies. The amount of punishment he endures to let adrenaline out, the fact his body doesn't exhaust itself for such prolonged period with his heart being constantly pumped and [[spoiler: falling from a massive height without any lasting trauma. Seriously, as soon as he body is recovered in the second movie, he is in such perfect condition his organs are ideal to be donated and he is capable of walking and fighting just fine, when he should have shattered every single part of his body with that fall.]] Of course, [[RuleOfCool reality was out for lunch]].
** In the second movie, it is explicitly stated that his nigh-indestructibility is the reason why various people are interested in [[spoiler: his organs. More specifically, one very special one...]]
** Lampshaded by the second film's promotional tagline: "Anyone else would be ''so'' dead by now..."
** And the Chinese prostitute, who [[spoiler: gets hit by a car and survives]].

* VillainProtagonist: Played with, Chelios is a hitman, but his villainy is donwplayed in the context of the movies.



* AbhorrentAdmirer: Ria gets infatuated with Chelios, much to his chagrin.
* ActionGirl: Eve has a moment of this.



* AnythingThatMoves: It is heavily implied that Eve wants to have sex with a horse.



* BackupTwin: Venus.



* DirtyOldMan: Poon Dong.



* EnfantTerrible: It's revealed that Chelios himself had been a bonafide juvenile delinquent when he was young.



* KnightInShiningArmor: Ria mistakes Chev as hers, says as much, and ''immediately'' develops a full-blown BodyguardCrush on him.
