* LoonyFan: Jules is one of these. He [[spoiler:not only steals Cynthia Hawkins's dress, but has a prostitute wear it while he has sex with her]]. Talk about creepy.

!!Tropes used include:
* BaldOfEvil - Le Curé
* CatchPhrase - "Je n'aime pas ... " ("I don't like ..."), Le Curé. Lampshaded when Zatopek says, "You don't like anything."
* ChaseScene - MobstacleCourse turns into a TrainEscape on the Paris Metro in what is probably the most memorable movie chase since The French Connection.
* TheChessmaster - Gorodish is one of these as he plays the two gangs off against each other. Subverted because Gorodish is on the side of the hero.
* CoolCar - Gorodish's Citroën Traction Avant 11. [[spoiler:Times two.]]
* CoolHouse - Gorodish's "country house" on the coast is a lighthouse.
