->''"Since the birth of time, humanity has endeavored to restrain evil men in prisons. But since {{Cain|AndAbel}} fled the murder of his brother, evil men have fled the walls of punishment. So, it doesn't matter if you're a {{badass}} motherfucker on the run, because you think you're better than everyone else and somehow entitled to do what you gotta do. No. Because, you see, badass motherfuckers are never fast enough. In the end, they will all be accounted for."''

* EscapedFromHell: Milton. Specifically referenced by The Accountant in the opening narration, albeit including the appellation "motherfucker."



* IronicHell: There's fire and burning in Hell, but the worst part is that you're forced to watch the suffering of your loved ones and you're completely unable to do anything about it. Or at least most of the time, as some people apparently [[LikeABadassOutOfHell get angry enough to break out]].

* {{Psychopomp}}: The Accountant seems to be an unusually aggressive version of this; instead of guiding souls to their destination after their initial death, he's sent out specifically for "repeat offenders." This is further emphasized by his Swiss-Army-coin being a reference to, [[Literature/TheBible among other things]], the fee needed for Myth/{{C|lassicalMythology}}haron's services. Although he does know exactly when people will die, which seems to imply that he does normally guide the souls of the dead to the Afterlife (or at least Hell) in his regular capacity. He has no problem bumping up that date if it suits him, though, as seen in his casual conversation with Jack McGee's character. McGee asks if "The Accountant" is supposed to mean anything, while the Accountant dismissively replies, "It will if I decide to add you to the books."

* SoundtrackDissonance: In the second half of the movie, Oklahoma police herd Milton and Piper into a roadblock in order to execute them for their earlier cop-killing. Until the protagonists were about to be shot, music was either non-existent or appropriately grim. Then the Accountant drives in from behind the roadblock in [[MadeOfExplodium a hydrogen fuel truck]], speeding straight towards the cops and driving through their cars to get to them, explosions abounding. What starts playing? [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3svW8PM_jc "That's the Way I Like It"]] by KC & the Sunshine Band, on the Accountants' radio, while he bobs his head to the music.

Added DiffLines:

* WeaponOfChoice: Milton only has three rounds for the Godkiller, and gets only limited (albeit ''awesome'') use out of his shotgun. He wins most fights with his 1911. Jonah King carries a replica Single-Action Army revolver, but he's better at [[ArtisticLicenseGunSafety twirling it like an idiot]] than actually hitting anything with it.

** Texas is a ''very'' big state, both geographically and demographically. There are several very distinct Texan accents, depending on which part of Texas. Amber Heard ''is'' Texan, just not from that part of Texas.
