* {{Narm}}: Like all good [=grindhouse=] tributes, this is invoked. The hobo often goes on nonsensical {{ice cream koan}}s, dramatic scenes have bizarre, overwrought, terrible dialogue, and... interesting faces are made during ridiculously implausible situations. [[invoked]]

->''"I used to be like you, a long time ago. All brand new and perfect; no mistakes, no regrets. People look at you and think of how wonderful your future will be. They want you to be something special, like a doctor or a lawyer. I hate to tell you this, but if you grow up here, you're more likely to wind up selling your bodies on the streets or shooting dope from dirty needles in a bus stop. And if you're successful, you'll make money selling junk to crackheads, and won't think twice about killing someone's wife, because you won't even know it's wrong in the first place. Maybe… you'll end up like me. A [[TitleDrop hobo with a shotgun]]. I hope you can do better. You are the future."''

* PsychoSupporter: Drake has a gang of groupies who run around in bikinis and enjoy violence just as much as he does. One girl dances in the RainOfBlood caused by Drake's execution of his brother, and later, they cheerfully beat on a human pinata Drake was holding prisoner.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Hobo gives his life to kill Drake and ensure that the citizens who have come to his aid fire the first shots on the corrupt police force. Abby is alive but has lost a hand and spends the end of the film hysterically screaming, and the remaining Plague member claims she'll be a member of them soon. The town may live or die in the ensuing violence, but either way the tyranny of Drake's crime family has ended.]]

* DirtyCop: There is exactly one non-corrupt cop in the movie (played by Scott Vrooman of ''{{Picnicface}}'' fame). [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in lines that made it in from the fake trailer:
--> '''Rookie Cop''': At least he's only killing the dirty cops.
--> '''Dirty Cop''': We're all dirty cops!
