* AnArmAndALeg: Red, the ringleader of the bank robbery halfway through the film, tries to coerce Hancock into helping him with a spring-loaded "dead-man's switch". Hancock's solution, cut his hand off and keep it closed around the detonator. [[spoiler: At the climax, he's holding a gun to a depowered Hancock, and Ray chops his other hand off with an ax.]]

* DestructoNookie: In one of the deleted scenes, when a random girl has sex with Hancock, it ends with something explosive. That's why Hancock doesn't have sex.

Luckily he got the girl off of him before the big climax. That's why Hancock doesn't have sex.

The movie is about a drunken {{jerkass}} super-hero (played by Creator/WillSmith) who has been stopping crime in Los Angeles for years. He has absolutely zero HeroInsurance, and every time he stops crime, something gets horribly wrecked, only annoying the city's denizens more and more. Each additional crime he stops raises the level of enmity the Angelenos have for him, and it isn't helped by the fact that they're all aware he cannot be restrained.

The film's name is a case of title dissonance for British viewers of a certain age, who irrevocably associate the name with ''Tony'' Hancock, of ''HancocksHalfHour'' fame. The actual reference, for those not well-versed in American history, is to ''John'' Hancock, who famously signed the American Declaration of Independence with a much larger signature than the other signers, leading to the idiom "put down your John Hancock" being used to mean "sign here."

* YouTube: Ray shows Hancock why he has such bad publicity. Someone recorded Hancock cavalierly grabbing a whale by its tail and flinging it out into the ocean, then posting the video on YouTube. In real life, the scene from the movie was posted to YouTube by the studio itself.

* ManOfSteelWomanOfKleenex: In a deleted scene, Hancock warns a woman about this before having sex with her. At the last minute, he shows her off him and his sperm ''shoot out through the roof''.



* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Hancock and Mary, several thousand years old, but look middle age]].

* TheUnfairSex: Averted in this case. Hancock calls [[spoiler: Mary]] out for thinking this.
* UngratefulBastard: Averted: While other citizens yell at Hancock for derailing the train, and Ray himself does agree that he could have just lifted the car up into the air, Ray is nonetheless thankful towards Hancock for saving his life.
* UntrustingCommunity: Amazingly averted. The population of Los Angeles are belligerent and ungrateful, berating Hancock for his methods of stopping crime and saving people (which costs the city in millions and often trashes some poor sod's day).

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

* AnimalMotifs: Hancock often finds himself surrounded by subtle or prominent the imagery of an Eagle, waking up on a bench with an eagle painted on it, wearing a hat bearing a logo of an eagle on the front, scrawling eagles on the walls of his cell, etc. Ray seems to have noticed this recurring motif and purposely put an Eagle on Hancock's brand new suit as his symbol. His reintroduction to the public has him walk past a prominent metal statue of one, he appears to have a drawing of a bird in his trailer, and finally, Hancock is shown watching over New York whilst sitting next to one.
