* AGodAmI: Hancock has this attitude sometimes, but [[spoiler: Mary]] gets it pretty bad for their fight.

* NameAmnesia: In his backstory, Hancock lost his memory and with it, his name. He eventually adopted the name "Hancock" after someone asked for his signature (his "John Hancock") and assumed it was his name.

* 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.

* MortalWoundReveal: Not mortal, but still. After the shooting at the shop, it takes Hancock a couple of seconds to notice that he received two gut shots. Then he sinks down.

* 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.
