''This film provides the following tropes.''

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: One of the later areas Benton gets chased to.
* {{BFG}}: Once the police track Benton down to the sewer, and realize that bullets have little effect on him, they break out the standard police-issue flamethrower and bazooka.
* BodyHorror: Benton after his indestructibility starts wearing a little thin.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey It's That Building]]: One of the goons is killed in the Bradbury Hotel which you might recognize from ''Film/BladeRunner''.
* LadyDrunk: The old lady in the BadGuyBar.
* MadeOfIron: The Butcher after the operation.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Butcher Benton.
* NighInvulnerability: "Nigh" being the important word here. The Butcher looks noticeably the worse for wear after a flamethrower to the face and a bazooka to the gut.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[TheSpeechless Minus the roaring.]]
* ShowSomeLeg: Benton runs across an attractive young lady next to her broken down car. Turns out she was being used as a bit of bait for the driver, a somewhat slimeball carney. Sure, the car was actually broken down, but the guy knew the girl would be better at attracting help.
* TheSpeechless: Butcher Benton after his resurrection.
* [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Stripper With a Heart of Gold]]: Eva
* ThousandYardStare: Seen in a witness as she's talking to the police about her encounter with The Butcher. Joel and the 'bots become agitated when she goes a long time without blinking.
