Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: Setting aside their utter failure to do anything useful about Milton or the Accountant, special mention has to go to the point where, after one of their number has been exposed as a member of Jonah's cult and has direct contact with him (keeping in mind Jonah is a wanted man), that same trooper shows up at Jonah's ceremony, unimpeded.

* CopKiller: Piper killed two policemen who were unknowingly enlisted by the Accountant, posing as an FBI Agent. When the state troopers put up a road block for Piper and Milton, their leader notes that two of their own have been killed and in order to get even instructs the cops to aim for the suspects' heads.

* [[SirSwearsALot Sir/Miss Swears-A-Lot]]: The Accountant and Piper, respectively, although the former mainly relies on Cluster-F-Bombs while the latter is happy to throw in a nice assortment of other vulgarities as well.

* {{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."

Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: The Accountant. For a demon assigned to hunt down Hell's escapees, he's rather polite to those who deserve it... and even-tempered when he insults (or kills) the hell out of those who deserve ''that'' treatment.
** He also lets Milton finish his roaring rampage - smashing through a police roadblock at one point - when he finds out it's for a selfless cause. He does insist on taking Milton back to Hell, though.

* LawOfInverseRecoil: Averted when Piper fires [[spoiler:the Godkiller at the cultists]]. Milton doesn't have this problem, but then again, this ''is'' [[{{Badass}} a guy]] who fought his way out of {{Hell}}.

Added DiffLines:

* FanserviceExtra: The movie isn't shy about showing nudity. Examples include the girl Piper's fiance is cheating her with, the waitress Milton nails in the motel, and at least one of King's female cultists who takes this into real FullFrontalAssault territory during his NewEraSpeech.


Added DiffLines:

* FullFrontalAssault: The aforementioned FanserviceExtra during King's NewEraSpeech.


Added DiffLines:

* NewEraSpeech: Jonah King gives one to his crazed cultists shortly before the final battle.

* DissonantSerenity: Jonah King's voice almost never rises above a casual conversation no matter how vicious the mayhem raging around him or how horrific the things he says and does might be.
