* BlackComedy: borderline. The way [[spoiler: Jake and Red gets killed by Corky is somewhat meant to be comical in a dark way.]]

* TraumaButton: what makes this film so disturbing is the nature of some of the killings. It too [[spoiler:is a reason for why Fresh cries at the end. He saw things no one should ever see]]. It should be of note that this movie possibly was NC-17 due to the bizarre nature of some of those killings, like the [[spoiler:basketball court shooting]].

* BrooklynRage: Perez and Sharpe, the two white cops. Perez also seems to get aggrevated with Fresh not coming clean about Esteban and Corky. And Sharpe, well it's obvious.

He berates Fresh in a very New Yorkish accent. And this movie is obviously set in Brooklyn, for the most part. Chillie, another white villain, as well, too. While his English accent is the same as Frank Lopez from "Scarface", at times he also pulls a New York accent too.

* BrokenPedestal: Fresh initially [[DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster idolizes the gangster lifestyle and plans to become a big shot too.]] After [[spoiler: a pointless shootout kills the girl he had a crush on,]] he gives up on it. HARD.

* AbsoluteXenophobe: Hector, a white supremacist drug dealer Fresh gives up all his money to, to an extent. Though he doesn't kill Fresh, he openly hates black people. He'll kill if he could. Borderline with Abe Sharpe. He assaults Fresh, lightly with a bookbag, but it could have been worse.

Also Corky and Esteban in that they both work together, and Corky hates "bro"-saying Hispanics and calls them "spics."

* BadassFamily: Fresh's dad, who's always telling Fresh about the times he played other chess players and beat them. His dad is pretty cool for the most part.

* CategoryTraitor: Detectives Abe Sharpe and Perez, two white cops, interrogate Fresh. The former clearly has no desire to solve the case, since he has no concern for non-whites, being the crime was committed by a black group and against Fresh - who fled without harm - and his Hispanic friend, Chuckie. He insults Fresh with a racist rant against his race and Hispanics. When Perez shows a genuine concern for the victims, infuriated, Sharpe indirectly snubs him as a "colored lover" and it wasn't in a warm welcoming way either:

* Dehumanization: borderline because of Abe Sharpe, described above. New York, the movie's setting, is a racist city. Blacks and Hispanics do get treated in a degrading way in a lot of cases. Mind you, it's better today than it was 50 years ago. We've made strides. But it still happens a lot in New York. he fact that Sharpe is the head of the NYPD preceint in Brooklyn, and he decides not to solve the cases shows the state lack of legal protection non-whites still get. Borderline segregation.
* EtTu,Brute?: A particularly sad version. [[spoiler: As the movie gets closer its climax, Fresh's plan costs him everything. His aunt can't afford to have a troublesome kid in her house. She calls the Bushwick Group Home. His friend, Nicholi blames him for Chuckie's death.]] Fresh feels like the world is turning their backs on him.
