** It's also worth noting that prior to the above mentioned CurbStompBattle, the gang were such [[CombatPragmatist Combat Pragmatists]] that ran circles around the pitiful small-town cops for using not one, but ''two'' {{Game Breaker}}s: they stole [[MoreDakka Browning Automatic Rifles]] ([[FunWithAcronyms BARs for short]]), UsefulNotes/WorldWarI holdovers with the barrels filed down for use in cars, and they had a habit of using only cars with [[SuperSpeed V8 engines in them that only required a five minute headstart to only be a memory]], compared to local police that had to [[AdamSmithHatesYourGuts buy their own handguns]] and drove equally simple cars; it was like pitting [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Andy Griffith]] against Rambo, plus some JurisdictionFriction for good measure. Given the [[MorallyBankruptBanker nature of the banks,]] they were initially considered to be rebels dealing out LaserGuidedKarma to [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]] until the cop-killing ruined that image, and they ''had'' to be ambushed by the posse because they were otherwise too much of a collective LightningBruiser to be taken down like any previous criminals.

* In the Czech Republic, the criminal duo [[http://www.radio.cz/en/article/122214 Pavel Tauchen and his wife Dagmar]] were referred to as "Czech Bonnie and Clyde." Notably, Dagmar managed to liberate her husband from a prison escort. Their escape ended similarly to the real Bonnie and Clyde: with a shoot-out with the police during which Pavel committed a suicide and Dagmar was wounded and arrested.

** Despite her fondness of posing for pictures while holding shotguns, the real Bonnie Parker was little more than Clyde's moll, never shooting anyone and never actively participating in holdups and robberies. Some of this had to do with the fact that Bonnie took some nasty injuries to her leg in a car accident in June 1933 that left her partially disabled for the remainder of her life.

She never actively participating participated in holdups and robberies.robberies and while some eyewitnesses reported her firing weapons during gun battles, there is no evidence anyone was hit or killed by her gunfire.

** In contrast to his usual Hollywood portrayals, the real Clyde Barrow was noted as a [[HairTriggerTemper hot tempered]] ControlFreak who bordered on AxCrazy at his worst. His first few murders were of shopkeepers and robbery victims that he killed out of anger or expediency, and he often left his hostages tied to trees. Former gang members W.D. Jones and Henry Methvin both claimed that Clyde had threatened to kill them (and in the latter's case, threatened to kill ''his entire family'') should they ever anger him. Most historians believe that his motivation for his crime spree was not anger at the banks, but a seething hatred towards the law and society over his two-year stay in [[HellholePrison Eastham Prison Farm]], which saw him repeatedly abused by both guards and inmates. Historians also believe that the two were repeatedly misidentified in bank robberies, and that he often targeted small stores and gas stations as they were lower risk.

* ''BaldursGate II'' has a short encounter with a young couple upstairs in an inn, where they say goodbye to each other due to pressures of family. However, the player character can encourage them to stick it to their families, stay true to their love and live life as they want to. If the character pays attention to dialogue from some [=NPCs=] later in the game, it turns out they weren't, in fact, just a RomeoAndJuliet, but a [[OutlawCouple Bonnie And Clyde]]. ...oops?
