* [[BewareTheSillyOnes Beware The Pathetic Ones]]/NotSoHarmlessVillain: Skank is a whiner and a coward. He's clearly the low man on the totem pole in T-Bird's gang, and compared to Top Dollar and Eric he's downright pathetic. [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain You almost feel sorry for him]]. Then he gets hit by a car, and when the driver steps out to inflict more damage, Skank beats him down in seconds. The weakest of a gang of brutal thugs is still a brutal thug.

* TooDumbToLive: Gideon, literally so. Just ''could not shut up'' when dealing with either Eric or Top Dollar. Eric blew up his shop. [[spoiler:Top Dollar [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice rammed a rapier through his throat]] and shot him twice.]]

** For that matter, Top Dollar himself showed he was just TooDumbToLive by getting himself involved in the first place. He was ''never'' on Eric's target list, ever. Had he stepped back and let Eric finish off Skank like Eric wanted to, Top Dollar would have no doubt lived a long and fruitful life as Detroit's chief boogeyman. But no... he just had to stick his nose in...
