* According to "[[http://scholarlycommons.law.wlu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=4277&context=wlulr Loan Sharks, Interest-Rate Caps, and Deregulation]]", the term "loan shark" didn't originally mean "lender who charges high interest and uses physical violence (i.e. brute force) to charge when the debtors don't pay up on time", but rather "lender who charges high interest and sets low payment periods so that debtors will end up perpetually paying interest and who collects on the debt agressively but not physically violently, by means of harassment, by e.g. telling on the neighbours or the boss that the debtor owed money". It notes that the modern meaning of "loan shark" came up during the late 1950s, popularized itself in the 1960s, and could still be heard as late as the 1980s.

* Gazzo in the first two ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' movies. In [[Film/{{Rocky}} the first]], Rocky works for him collecting money and beating up people who don't pay. Or in his trainer Mickey's words he's: "a legbreaker for a cheap, second-rate loan shark". In ''RockyII'', Rocky's brother-in-law Paulie gets his old job. Gazzo is seen with a date rooting for Rocky during the climactic fight of both movies. Working for Gazzo later comes back to haunt him in [[Film/RockyV the fifth movie]].
