* StoryArc: With few exceptions, ''Black Lagoon'' contains nothing but self-supporting arcs describing the crew's current job. They will reference past events, but they seldom influence each other.

** Dutch, Mr. Chang, and Eda all wear glasses and all of them are cunning badasses. At certain angles, Eda's shades bear a striking resemblance to [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina's.]]

*** How about actually snatching Revy's gun from in front of his face before she can pull the trigger? Admittedly, she hesitated and may have only pulled the trigger because the gun jerked in her hand, but it still takes balls of titanium to attempt it with Revy's gun in your face to begin with.

** On the other hand, it also cut through important information and changed the order of scenes for dramatic emphasis. Also, the OVA removed some scenes that explained things like [[spoiler:Chang and Balalaika's conversation about Grey Fox at the pier, and how Chang asked Balalaika to avoid attacking them, but only provide cover so they can escape Roanapur she was indecisive at that point, which was not present in the OVA, but only in pictures through Rock's flashbacks. Also, the short conversation between Caxton and Dutch about Vietnam, and Caxton's subsequent warning to Benny and Rock that Dutch is lying about his past, is gone.]]

* VillainProtagonist: The Lagoon Crew murder and transport contraband [[HiredGun for whomever is willing to pay for such services]], including [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil the transportation]] and [[WouldHurtAChild willing abandonment of a child deemed as cargo]]. Dutch and Revy, captain and second-in-command, respectively, have deliberately removed and actively discourage any inclination towards justice amongst the crew. With Hotel Moscow as prominent customers, the local police force over-worked and eagerly-bribed, the local church working well within and beneath the sight of the black market and the city's arms race, and an entire city comprised of mercenaries and pirates, they simply work to the best of their abilities.



* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Revy. Hurt Rock ''in any way,'' and Revy will either beat you up or kill you.

* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Revy. Hurt Rock ''in any way,'' and Revy will either beat you up or kill you.behaves like this on Rock's behalf as they get better acquainted, [[DownplayedTrope though she isn't is girlfriend]].



* VillainProtagonist: They ''are'' pirates and [[RuthlessModernPirates not fun]] [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]] [[RuthlessModernPirates pirates either]]. Hell, they're introduced by having them hijack a boat...during which time Revy proposes that they execute Rock to tie up loose ends. On the other hand, Dutch insists on professionalism, meaning no indiscriminate slaughter. Just killing for money and/or to eliminate enemies.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted completely. Any female who gets in a fight will not get out unblemished, even in the face.
%%* BelligerentSexualTension: Rock and Revy.
* BerserkButton: Just about every character has at least one of these. Harm one of Balalaika's men, question Revy's cynicism, hurt Rock in front of Revy, harm someone Rock's trying to protect, shoot at the Rip-Off Church, do ''anything even remotely unpleasant'' to Garcia, and you might as well call your undertaker now to save time.

** Not to mention whenever mobs of enemies try to shoot major characters. Mister Chang stands in place without being hit while enough bullets are fired at him to completely destroy his car.

* ActionGirlfriend: Revy most assuredly counts. Rokuro was a normal salaryman with a dead-end job and there's nothing special about him aside from being intelligent. Then she kidnapped him and tried to sell him for a ransom. [[{{UST}} The girlfriend part isn't confirmed yet]], but the hints are there on both sides.



* UnresolvedSexualTension: Revy and Rock, [[DidTheyOrDidntThey we think]].

* {{Crossover}}: [[http://www.mangatraders.com/view/file/152632 With]] ''Manga/{{Jormungand}}'', funnily enough. Not surprisingly, Koko [[LesYay wraps herself around Revy's leg]] before getting her to buy a crap-ton of extra stuff on top of the Lagoon Company's weapons order. [[note]]American MRE rations, a [[Film/TeamAmerica Gary]] action-figure, an exercise set, and a lot of high class makeup.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* BringingRunningShoesToACarChase: Roberta overtakes the Lagoon Crew's vehicle at a dead run and leaping right on the rear with a trench knife. There's a reason she's often compared to the Franchise/{{Terminator}}.

** Some cases are very annoying, usually among mooks. For example, while Roberta is standing in the middle of the Yellow Flag pointing her gun at the Lagoon Crew, a random thug of the Colombian Cartel hops out of cover BEHIND her, takes aim at her, and then, [[BondVillainStupidity instead of just giving her a headshot]], completely [[WithCatlikeTread wrecks any advantage of suprise he had]] by yelling "We're not done with you yet, you fucking bitch!" and then not shooting, but ''charging'' towards her. Cue the guy getting BlownAcrossTheRoom via OffhandBackhand.
