* PityTheKidnapper: Jack is a licensed bounty hunter, not a kidnapper, but otherwise the dynamic is the same, as the Duke annoys the bejesus out of him with his constant irritating questions.

* PityTheKidnapper: Jack is a licensed bounty hunter, not a kidnapper, but otherwise the dynamic is the same, as the Duke annoys the bejesus out of him with his constant irritating questions. Interestingly enough, the trope is defied by Marvin: the moment he has Mardukas and he tries to swindle Marvin with his annoyance act, Marvin ''knocks him out in one punch'' and carries him away.

* EverybodySmokes: Played straight with most of the characters, especially Jack, who lights up every chance he can get in late 80s America, and there are plenty; averted with Mardukas, who not only doesn't smoke but urges Jack to put his cigarette out for the sake of his health. Yes, kids, [[AluminumChristmasTrees it used to be OK to smoke on airplanes.]]

** The entire movie is a carpet [[FBomb F-Bombing]] campaign. There is hardly a scene where it isn't dropped, repeatedly.
