* GreaterScopeVillain: As ruthless, violent and terrifying Brick Top was, he was clearly nervous when dealing with the unnamed gangsters after Micky didn't go down in the first fight, and wasted no time in promising them they he would make it up to them. Considering that Brick Top has no compunctions against ordering murders in front of witnesses, one can only shudder to think how awful someone must be to make Brick Top uneasy around them.

* {{Callback}}: The Madonna track that Tony hears on the radio and gushes over is the same song that was playing when he got shot in flashback.

The Madonna track that Tony hears on the radio and gushes over is the same song that was playing when he got shot in flashback.flashback.
** Bullet-Tooth Tony's introductory shot has him slamming a victim's head in a car door, which was also an iconic moment for Jones' character Big Chris in ''Film/LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels''.
** Doug's daughters tell their father, each separately and then both together, "Yeah, Dad, you told us." This echoes a scene in ''Lock, Stock'' in which Big Chris and Barry say "No, Harry, you can't" in the same pattern.

** Played with. Boris' two nicknames (Boris the Blade and Boris the Bullet Dodger) actually aren't all that accurate. He's only seen using a blade once in the entire movie, and he doesn't dodge bullets so much as absorb them. His third name "Boris the sneaky fucking Russian" is a bit more accurate (although technically he's an Uzbek).

Doug's [[DaddysGirl twin girls]] are considerably more grounded and seemingly have more common sense than he does.



* InformedFlaw: Doug's view of Bullet-Tooth Tony as 'a liability' doesn't seem entirely fair, since he's pretty much a paragon of [[TheAce efficient,]] [[TheStoic understated badassery]] throughout the film. Yes, in real life you'd probably get pulled in for driving along with an informant's head trapped in your car window or drawing a Desert Eagle in a pub - but [[PoliceAreUseless in a universe where one can apparently limp freely through London flourishing an assault rifle and muttering to oneself in Uzbek,]] that's not really relevant.
** Doug's reaction to the mention of Tony indicates that, to him, the situation escalated to a more violent degree. Seconds later, Tony is shown slamming a guy's head against the door of his car.
* InformedJudaism: In a much different way than the trope usually goes. Doug and Avi are constantly informing others that they're Jewish...even though they really aren't.

Granted, Doug's reaction to the mention of Tony indicates may just be an indication that, to him, the situation has escalated to a more the possibility of Tony's involvement will make things too violent degree.

* KickTheDog: There's no real reason to dislike Avi until he gives a certain command involving a dog. Bricktop is also seen killing two {{Mooks}} and brutalizing dogs early in the film to establish him as a villain amongst villains. When he order the burning of Mickey's caravan with his mother still inside, he crosses a MoralEventHorizon.

* MurderIsTheBestSolution: The dilemma faced by Tommy after Gorgeous George is laid out with one punch by Mickey at the Travellers' campsite. As Turkish's narration points out, given that the Travellers are nomads anyway there's absolutely no reason for them to hang around and answer awkward questions from the authorities about why a man died in their campsite when they can just bury ''two'' people and disappear to another campsite never to be seen again. Fortunately for both, George is seriously injured but alive, but for a moment there, [[OhCrap Tommy looks rather concerned]].

** Tommy looks a little bit concerned after Mickey knocks Gorgeous George out cold with one punch and it looks like he's dead. More specifically, he looks like he's holding back tears of pure panic and a desperate urge to scream "Oh God, please don't kill me as well."

*** Though Tommy is not insane or greedy, he is remarkably naive and is tremendously out of place in the whole film. One seems to wonder what the hell is [[FishOutOfWater a guy like that]] even doing in a crime film.
*** That said, it's impossible to deny that he had his crowning moment, and Turkish pretty much owes his, at the very least, health to Tommy.

* VitriolicBestBuds:
** Turkish definitely has some pretty snarky and snide things to say about Tommy, but in his voice-over admits that he considers him like a younger brother. The two are pretty much inseparable throughout the film.
** To a lesser extent, Vinnie and Sol, although the two definitely seem less close and don't appear to actually like each other very much at times.
