** During the bank robbbery, when the gang have their ski masks on, Neil wears a dark black suit, while Shiherlis wears a gray suit (both carry Colt M733 rifles), and his ponytail is not entirely covered by his mask. Cheritto and Shiherlis have suits of the same shade of gray, but Cheritto is carrying a different type of rifle.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Hanna's team has Neil's crew dead to rights without the latter any wiser during the precious minerals repository heist, but a bumbling SWAT officer inadvertently makes a sound while sitting down in their concealed vehicle, spooking Neal and causing him to instruct his men to abort the heist. Hanna is thus forced to let Neal's crew go as a premature arrest would only yield a meager misdemeanor charge.

** Subverted with Hanna as he tries to use one during his cat-and-mouse chase with Neil towards the end. He expends all shells on Neil but misses and runs out of ammo. Hanna then ditches the shotgun for his pistol instead.

** This trope is subverted, however, in one very important way: when all is said and done, Neil is a sociopath, while Vincent is not. Michael Mann is quick to point this out in the director's commentary and behind-the-scenes features on the DVD and Blu-Ray. Note that when Vincent and Neil meet in the coffee shop, Vincent tells Neil point blank that he will kill him if "it's between you and some poor bastard whose wife you're gonna turn into a widow" while Neil says he'll put Vincent down because "I will not let you get in my way." The difference between them is graphically illustrated during the bank robbery shootout: Vincent does everything he can, at his own risk, to get innocent bystanders out of harm's way; Neil fires into a crowd to cause confusion, and we see at least one bystander go down.
