* NotSoAboveItAll: Callahan is introduced as every bit the hardass as Harris in the first film, playing DrillSergeantNasty to the new recruits. However after she catches Martin sneaking into the women's quarters to hook up with the female recruits, rather than busting him, ''she'' makes a move on ''him''. She also finds Harris' [[AssShove incident with the horse]] hilarious.



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Commissioner Hurst. Especially in ''Back in Training'', while he must remain neutral and wanting ''both'' academies to look good, he's secretly rooting for Lassard's academy to win the competition.

** Subdued example: Callahan in the first film is tough on the recruits and seems just as hard on them as Harris. However while Harris is ''trying'' to make them fail or quit, Callahan is giving her best effort to train them. She's genuinely pleased when they begin to show competence, and in one scene scowls in disgust when Harris openly dismisses their progress.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: Captain Mouser lacks any redeeming qualities that would make the audience sympathize with him. Whenever he'd get his comeuppance it's without question that he had it coming.
