* AntiHero: Hancock is this at the start of the film - a drunken, sexist, homophobic, politically incorrect cunt who cares nothing for collateral damage and only saves people out of some strange need. He grows out of it with Ray's help.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: After becoming annoyed at a kid that keeps calling him an asshole, Hancock suddenly snatches the kid up and hurls him thousands of feet into the air in the blink of an eye. The acceleration from this act would immediately tear your body apart, and even if it didn't, the internal trauma would immediately destroy all of your internal organs, including your brain. Likewise for the deceleration when he catches the kid a moment later.
