* TokenRomance: Bryan and Asha. They are quickly thrown together at the start of season 1 and their romance is definitely the B plot to Bryan gaining his 'skills.' Plus, even before the cast shakeup prior to season 2, we know they won't last since this series is a prequel to the film series - therefore we know Bryan still has to meet Lenore so they can have the world's most kidnappable child.

* RoaringRampageOfRescue: Both of the first films have this as its premise, as Bryan tears through every bastard in his way to rescue his daughter (in the first film) and his ex-wife (in the second film).
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In the third film, [[spoiler:Lenore is murdedred]], prompting a final rampage of revenge.



* SimpleYetAwesome: Bryan's martial arts style is very abrupt and efficient, fully obeys the laws of gravity and physics, and involves no somersaults or fancy kicks-- he even refuses to use GunsAkimbo when he has two pistols. His style basically consists of ramming hard things into people's heads, and ramming people's heads into hard things, and dammit, it works ''{{r|ammingAlwaysWorks}}eally'' well.

* WouldHitAGirl: But it was OnlyAFleshWound.[[WouldHitAGirl Would Shoot A Girl]]: Bryan is not afraid to shoot someone's innocent wife in order to get the information he needs. He does have the courtesy to give her a [[OnlyAFleshWound flesh wound]] instead of outright killing her though.

** What’s there to like about Lenny or Lenore in the first film? She’s incredibly rude towards Bryan and goes out of her way to keep him away from Kimmie. She also pressures Bryan into letting Kimmie go to Paris and is ok with her lying about the museum visits.

* TooDumbToLive: Kim and Amanda, but mostly Amanda, as Kim had reservations about all the information Amanda was sharing. Two young, pretty American women who don't speak much French go to Paris alone, they accept a car ride with a stranger, they let the stranger see the exact address where they are staying, they tell the stranger where in the building they will be staying, and that they will be alone in the apartment. It's as though they went down a checklist of things not to do when traveling.

Kim is merely drugged and roughed up. Also by the second film she has learned her lesson and now travels abroad with both parents.]]
