* VillainousValour: Only Wah Sing Ku is able to disassemble a Beretta in 5 seconds with his own bare hands and then knocking off Riggs and Murtaugh who are older and taller than him. In the final showdown he once again manages to handle them even if they are two vs one.

** Murtaugh isn't a hot-shot gunslinger, but if he carefully aims his gun and rolls his head to loosen his neck before squeezing off a shot, he'll hit with perfect accuracy. He pulls off an excellent shot to kill the BigBad of both parts 1 and 2. In part 1, he shoots the driver of a car coming right at him, and then gets out of the way as the out-of-control car goes flying onto Hollywood Boulevard and smashes into a bus. And in part 2, he revokes Rudd's diplomatic immunity with a damned impressive head shot.

In ''Lethal Weapon'' (1987), Glover plays Roger Murtaugh, the strict cop that plays by the rules, and worries about getting too old ([[CatchPhrase for this shit]]). He is partnered with Martin Riggs, a suicidal badass despairing over the death of his wife. Riggs is well versed with both martial arts and gun play and added to his [[TheBerserker berserker]] tendencies makes him a candidate to be registered as a [[TitleDrop lethal weapon.]] They start tracking down a major drug dealer who has ties within the force.

* StuffedInTheFridge: The original plan for Rika was for her to survive and attend the Thanksgiving party at Murtaugh's house with Riggs. Instead, she was killed off just so Riggs would be properly "motivated" for the rest of the movie.
