* GoodIsNotNice: In Wilson's 'verse there's a specific gene set which [[HotBlooded increases violent impulses]] - Jack is the most potent carrier on record; e.g., he once tied a man [[spoiler:who seduced and impregnated his own unknowing daughter]] under a truck. At the moment he justified the modernized "draw and quartering" as a kill method which left no trace evidence, but after what was left of the body was identified by DNA testing just a day later, he realized he was just ''[[UnstoppableRage that violently angry]]''. Even '''he''' asks himself WhatTheHellHero.

** That said, this trope got played completely straight in ''Legacies'', during a job involving some toys stolen from a donation center. [[spoiler: After Jack found out who the person was that was responsible, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny he donned a]] [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Santa Claus costume]], put on some weighted gloves, and proceeded to beat the living shit out of the guy. Even gets lampshaded by the ass-kicking victim himself.]]

* CurbStompBattle: Subverted; While Jack tends to win a lot of his fights hands down, it's quite rare that he ''actually'' beats someone down the way this trope would imply. Truth be told, he spends more time outthinking and outmaneuvering his opponents than he does fighting them, and a great deal of his victories required loads of prep-time beforehand.

** Played straight again in the same novel. After seeing [[spoiler: Alicia Clayton]] get kidnapped, [[BigDamnHeroes Jack comes to the rescue by commandeering a taxicab and stopping the kidnappers' truck himself]]. The driver who comes out to take care of him is only the first victim...

** Jack sometimes wanders at night, dressed like a tourist, waiting for someone evil and stupid enough to attempt to mug him. Then Jack beats the would-be mugger up, takes his money and jewelry, fences the jewelry, and donates the money to a kids' baseball league.
** Two bandits and later a mugger try to attack Glaeken. The mugger (probably) survives. The bandits are not so lucky.
** Some yeniceri try to hold up Julio's bar when they're searching for Jack. Julio's has a ''lot'' of well-armed customers, so they're forced to back off very, ''very'' politely.
