* KavorkaMan: Cage plays [=McDonagh=] like RichardNixon mixed with Creator/LaurenceOlivier's version of Theatre/RichardIII, yet he still has Creator/EvaMendes and Creator/FairuzaBalk falling all over themselves to get him into bed.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [=McDonagh=], due in part to drug-induced hallucinations.

* HardboiledDetective: [=McDonagh=].
to:
* HardboiledDetective: [=McDonagh=]. Sort of. His being a total {{Cloudcuckoolander}} makes for a weird example of the trope.

Added DiffLines:
* HardboiledDetective: [=McDonagh=].LighterAndSofter: Compared to the original ''Film/BadLieutenant''. The fact that, despite the differences in the main plot, the ''scenarios'' Terrance is in (especially the gambling subplot) often invoke the older film can cause one to suspect this film's a parody of the other. The trope is brought UpToEleven when [[spoiler: ''everything works out for Terrance in the end'']]--including ''the game''!

* AntiHero: [=McDonaugh=]. He's on the side of good and working to solve the murders, but he comes ''this'' close to almost being a villain in his own right. He's corrupt, a drug and gambling addict, steals from other cops and suspects, tortures people he interrogates, and blackmails female suspects to have sex with him. He still loves his family and girlfriend, and draws the line at point blank murder. The circumstances that caused him to become a drug addict in the first place are also somewhat tragic.

Stevie doesn't show the rage needed for Rabid Cop.
* DevilInPlainSight: [=McDonagh=]. * DirtyCop: Oh, ''so'' dirty.
to:
* DevilInPlainSight: [=McDonagh=]. Stevie, who can nonchalantly show he has zero redeeming qualities without any trouble (at least [=McDonagh=] has redeeming qualities...sorta). * DirtyCop: Oh, ''so'' dirty.[=McDonagh=]. Though Stevie, amusingly enough, out-dirties him.

* DevilInPlainSight: [=McDonagh=]. * DirtyCop: Oh, ''so'' dirty.** Stevie [[UpToEleven even moreso]].

* RabidCop: Stevie. [=McDonagh=] starts turning into one over the course of the film.

misuse
* ActorAllusion: The second time Cage has played a character with the last name [[RaisingArizona McDonagh]].

* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Just in case we were thinking that [=McDonagh=] himself had changed his ways during the ending, [[spoiler:he is still addicted to cocaine and commits one more act of PoliceBrutality out of spite.]]

reverted to previous version
* AntiHero: [=McDonaugh=]. He's on the side of good and working to solve the murders, but he comes ''this'' close to almost being a villain in his own right. He's corrupt, a drug and gambling addict, steals from other cops and suspects, tortures people he interrogates, and blackmails female suspects to have sex with him. He still loves his family and girlfriend, and draws the line at point blank murder. The circumstances that caused him to become a drug addict in the first place are also somewhat tragic.

* VillainProtagonist: Terrence [=McDonaugh=] is a RabidCop who's also a drug and gambling addict, steals from other cops and suspects, tortures people he interrogates, and blackmails female suspects to have sex with him. The only redeeming qualities he has is that he still loves his family and girlfriend, and draws the line at point blank murder. [[spoiler:By the time the film's ending comes around, he still hasn't changed his drug-inducing habits one little bit and goes largely unpunished for all his crimes.]]
