* ShortRangeShotgun: The "blunderbuss" is an extremely short range weapon, but ''inside'' of its range, it is, in Kid Blue's words, "impossible to miss anything closer [than 15 yards]." He also called it "a gun for fuck-ups" compared to his Gat, which makes sense because killing a bound and gagged man with a crude and overpowered shotgun at point-blank range is not exactly a job requiring a lot of skill.

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Jesse, the only decent Gat Man in the movie, a man who seemingly wouldn't hurt an innocent person, gets the most gruesome and violent death of them all; lifted into the air telepathically and blown apart from the inside out. Although most of it is hidden from view, what we do see only fuels our imagination for the worst.

** Loopers are technically "the lowest men on the totem pole" - men of minimal competence chosen for short-sighted hedonism so they will gleefully gun down their targets for the money they're paid without ever thinking about how they've basically signed up to commit suicide. Up until the events of the film, Young Joe has never killed a man who wasn't helpless. They're ''heavily'' overpaid for their real purpose - money laundering the bars of silver strapped to their victims' bodies - and never learn to be frugal.

* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:Old Joe is apparently willing to kill three kids because they each might become the Rainmaker. Cid, who will become the Rainmaker, is trying to kill ''all'' Loopers, in the future, possibly because he figures one might be the guy who killed his mom.]]

**Seth is also a contender for this trope. After he's ratted out by Joe and caught by the Gat Men, his fate is to have his limbs removed and his face mutilated until his future self shows up. While this is happening, we're treated to a disturbing scene in which Old Seth's limbs disappear in a rather creepy manner. By the time he finally shows up at his destination, there's hardly anything left.
