* AgonyOfTheFeet: Vazquez and his partner Romero are tortured for the location of the stolen money by having their toes cut off, before being killed at the end of the same scene.



* BigBad: Javi.
* BiggerBad: Frank Fowler, who the Driver and his [[RedShirt associate]] stole the money from before the film started.



* CassandraTruth: Vazquez is unable to convince Frank and his men that they only stole $2 million, not knowing about the rest of the money.



** The car driven by Driver in the opening chase. [[spoiler: Vazquez and Romero steal the $2 million they find, but can't find the rest of the money, having not known about it to start with. At the end, Driver finds the car impounded, cuts open the trunk and retrieves the rest of the money.]]

* SherlockScan: The Driver, after first arriving at ''El Pueblito'', deduces that Carnal is working for Caracas because people are showing Caracas respect and Caracas appears to be making Carnal's life miserable. Then he corrects himself moments later when he spots Javi in a bathrobe in a LuxuryPrisonSuite, correctly deducing now that Caracas and Carnal both work for Javi. Bear in mind this is before he even knows any of their names and the fact they're all related (he gets that fact from the Kid later).
* ShoeSlap: The Driver does this with his own shoes shotly after first arriving in ''El Pueblito''.
