* ShoutOut: The concept of a uniformed KillerCop committing serial killings harkens back to the ''Film/DirtyHarry'' installment ''Film/MagnumForce''. Furthermore, the character of Jack Forrest during the first half is basically fulfilling the role of Charlie [=McCoy=] (who was played by Mitch Ryan, who co-starred with Tom Atkins, who plays DecoyProtagonist Frank [=McRae=], in ''Film/LethalWeapon'' a year earlier before this movie's release) as a troubled divorced cop who is initially suspected for the killings.

* ImmuneToBullets; Cordell is unfazed by [=McRae=] and Mallory shooting him repeatedly in the chest. The first film tried to explain this by claiming that Cordell was effectively bulletproof after getting attacked in prison, which left him impervious to pain ([[SarcasmMode because, obviously, several bullets to the heart and lungs is only fatal because it hurts so darn much]]). In the later movies, he's explicitly [[TheUndead undead]], doing away with the need for any other type of HandWave.
