to:

* FairCop: Virginia Slim.
* GratuitousJapanese: Chance is seen having a video conference with Japanese business partners. Roughly half of his dialogue is made unintelligible by a combination of his accent and speaking [[MotorMouth way too fast]].

GunshipRescue: Tom the chopper pilot rescues our heroes when they're about to be shot by Chance's guards in the climax... By tearing apart Chance's office with his helicopter's built-in minigun.

* HeelFaceTurn: Subversion. Tom the chopper pilot decides to help our heroes out in the climax despite being in the employ of the villains, but it's more because [[BadBoss his bosses were assholes to him]] and because [[MoneyDearBoy the heroes paid him]] than anything else.
* HonorBeforeReason: Despite being an outlaw, Marlboro adheres to a strict code of honor. He rejects Harley's idea to run away when they're being hunted by the assassins, and later refuses to shoot an unarmed Chance despite everything Chance had done, both times because "It ain't right."



* ItWasAGift: The reason Marlboro continues to wear his shitty, worn-out, duct taped boots is because his father gave them to him before his first ever rodeo ride.



* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Jack Daniels with his wife Lulu.
* JiveTurkey: Jimmy Jiles.

* SacrificialLion: ''All'' of Harl and Marl's friends at the bar (minus Lulu) die when Alexander and friends come looking for them.

* NewOldWest: The plot is a gang of outlaw bikers robbing an armored car to save their favorite bar that represents the last bastion of an earlier day in a modern society. Replace the motorcycles with horses, the armored car with a train, and you have a western right there. The fact that one of the bikers actually is a cowboy, and the bar they hang out is frequented by a variety of cowboys and outlaws doesn't hurt matters either. It even ends with one of the heroes riding off into the sunset.
