Added DiffLines:

* GatlingGood: The dead-os universally use the same revolvers and six-barrelled rifles[[note]]which look like pepper-boxes, which in turn share quite a few visual features with early Gatling guns[[/note]] that the R.I.P.D. deploys as well... except for that one guy in the final battle who suddenly breaks out a full-sized, backpack-fed minigun. The beast predictably makes short work of about a dozen good guys before it suffers a sudden misfire and is rendered temporarily inoperable.


Added DiffLines:

* RevolversAreJustBetter: Massive revolvers loaded with magic bullets seem to be the standard issue sidearms for both the R.I.P.D. and the dead-os. If that's not enough firepower, rifle-sized, pepper-box-like versions that look suspiciously like the [[Film/DriveAngry Godkiller]] are also available.

* RaceLift: An in-universe example. To everyone except other R.I.P.D. officers, Nick appears to be an elderly Chinese man. And Proctor is [[spoiler: a tall black man]].

* LightningBruiser: "Fat Elvis" is a bonafide juggernaut that can plow through pretty much anything without slowing down, and despite his bulk he can run like the wind and leap like a kangaroo.
