* FaceOfAThug: Jack Andolini, who Eddie and Henry refer to as "old double-ugly", but never within his hearing. That said, Jack [[GeniusBruiser was in no way "old double-stupid"]]; he's Enrico Balazar's right hand man for a reason.

* ShortRangeShotgun: A truly horrendous example pops up during the shootout in Balazar's office. One of the crime boss' mooks fires a [[SawedOffShotgun shotgun]] at Eddie, and not only is the length of an office enough for the spread to be ineffective, but those pellets that do hit him ''merely sting.'' That's right, someone just on the other side of the room shoots Eddie in the chest with a shotgun, and it just stings a bit.
