* GanglandDriveBy: D-Fens gets into a scuffle with Hispanic gangsters when they try to rob him. They come back for revenge by performing a drive-by shooting on him. Unfortunately, [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy they're such poor shots]] that they injure several other people but miss him completely.

* MoralEventHorizon: Though Foster is never portrayed as a particularly nice man, it takes his [[spoiler: murder of the Nazi store owner Nick to cross this line for good. Interestingly, he doesn't seem to see it as this at first, instead thinking of himself as TheUnfettered. It takes his confrontation with Prendergast to truly realise what he has become.]]

** The straight examples are the neo-Nazi store owner and the Latino hoodlums are criminal psychos.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: The gang members manage to shoot everyone on the street ''except'' Foster during the drive-by. Although actually, drive-by shootings that kill several people but miss the intended target are known to happen in real life. Combine with blatant abuse of GangstaStyle, and you have a recipe for disaster.

** Moments later, Foster picks up a gun, takes aim at one of the injured gang members, and ''misses'' from point blank range. He succeeds at the second attempt.

* UnconfessedUnemployment: As Bill Prendergast goes on his [[GoingPostal violent rampage]] throughout the city, the cops discover that "D-Fens" has actually lost his job as a missile engineer several months before as a result of budget cuts in the military. All that time he has nevertheless been going out every day fully dressed, but apparently doing nothing. Neither his ex-wife nor even his mother, whom he was living with at the time, knew this.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Foster, aka D-fens. Even if he was unstable, you can sympathize with him when you see how [[spoiler: his country "thanked" him for his services]].
