** And you can't forget whenever Child mentions Jack hitting someone in the solar plexus (the area between the pecs and stomach).

A series of novels by British-born Lee Child, about [[UsefulNotes/YanksWithTanks ex-Military Policeman]] Jack Reacher, WalkingTheEarth after mustering out from over a decade of service. A MilitaryBrat, having spent his younger years being posted all round the world, he decides to get a closer look at his home country. On his journeys across America he stumbles across his fair share of forgers, smugglers, gun runners, drug dealers and assassins. He then proceeds to sit down with each of them in turn and have civilized discussions -over a lovely cup of tea- why they really should stop all this unpleasant business and whatnot; Actually, being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and a former soldier with a personal code of honor, he executes vigilante justice without mercy and proceeds to in a very realistic matter kick the asses of the villain/s.

* GoodOlFisticuffs: How Reacher typically fights. He may have military training and experience, but he's a brawler first and foremost.

**Reacher himself can seem this way as well, due to his stoic reactions and lack of remorse.

* DramaticGunCock: Deconstructed in ''The Affair," when Reacher debates the advantage gained from the intimidation factor of cocking his shotgun versus the disadvantage of having one fewer shell in the gun if it comes to a shoot out.
