The Destroyer is a series of action/adventure novels with elements of black comedy. It's about a [[SaltAndPepper bizarre pair]] of [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower supermen]] who [[WalkingTheEarth stride the earth]] [[WeHelpTheHelpless righting wrongs]] and [[WeirdTradeUnion making a living]] by [[VigilanteExecution killing people]] who really need to be dead. The main characters are Dr. Harold "Emperor" Smith, OldMaster [[ProfessionalKiller Assassin]] Chiun, and his protege MightyWhitey Remo Williams. [[RuleOfCool Cool]] and [[RuleOfFunny funny]], but ''definitely'' a GuiltyPleasure.

* AdaptationDistillation: The comic put out by Marvel is even better than the first book.



** CriminalAmnesia / AmnesiacLiar: Remo kills professional killer PJ Kenny at the beginning of the book and takes his identity. Maggie helpfully provides him with the cover story he gave her after he lost his memory and he decides he really is a professional killer. Which, of course, he is, albeit for the good guys.

** Incidentally, this is Chiun's opinion of all black people. His opinions of white people are far less flattering.

* PopCulturedBadass: Chiun spends much of his spare time watching soap operas, which he considers the only significant thing United States has ever contributed to art.

* SexGod: In one of the books it's noted that Remo can use his knowledge of Sinanju to bring any woman to orgasm by touching her pressure points in a specific order.
** Somewhat subverted, in that while it's great for his partner, Remo's sex life has become mechanical and boring.
*** Especially since Remo has yet to find a woman frigid enough to not become a sex-crazed monster at step twenty. Out of thirty-seven. One should probably presume that executing all thirty-seven steps in sequence will resuscitate a coma victim.
**** Although at one point, it's established that especially butch lesbians are unaffected due to being too masculine.

* SpeedSex: Part of the aspect of being a SexGod is that Remo often finds the women orgasming to unconsciousness before he gets anywhere with them.

* TortureAlwaysWorks: When Remo or Chiun put people into extreme pain, whether through nerve bundles or broken bones, the information is almost always correct. When Remo asks nicely for information, he always gets lies.

* TortureAlwaysWorks: When Remo or Chiun put people into extreme pain, whether through nerve bundles or broken bones, the information is almost always correct. When Remo asks nicely for information, he always gets lies. This is helped by the fact that Remo and Chiun are both {{Living Lie Detector}}s which helps with the torture.
