* HypocriticalHumor: "It's dangerous to [answer the phone] while driving, so let's do it at the hotel," Benny says. He says this while driving a car and [[spoiler:having sex]] at the same time.

Added DiffLines:

* NippleAndDimed: The manga shows Revy's bare breasts a couple times: once when she's changing from her wetsuit into her usual clothes before attacking the Nazis' ship, another time when she has a ShowerScene in her apartment during "El Baile de la Muerte". This is cut from the anime, although the anime keeps the nipples on the strippers in "Calm Down, Two Men".

** ArtisticLicenseGeography: The series explicitly states that Roanapur is in UsefulNotes/{{Thailand}}. But… every car shown in the series has the steering wheel on the left side and traffic in and around the city drives on the right (like in the USA and China). In reality, Thailand's road rule is the opposite – traffic there drives on the ''left'' and most cars have their steering wheels on the right (like in the UK and Japan). It would make a lot more sense if Roanapur was in neighbouring Cambodia. This is an unusual bit of CriticalResearchFailure on Rei Hiroe's part (considering how much really obscure stuff he gets correct).
* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: By now, Revy should have had her eardrums blown out multiple times and permanent hearing loss. Ditto Rock, since Revy fired her gun right next to his left ear.

The rest were scrapped following the end of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.

Added DiffLines:

* BreatherEpisode: Technically breather ''arc.'' The series can get fairly oppressive at times with its depiction of both violence and life on the fringes. The "Greenback Jane" arc however is almost entirely played for laughs, largely featuring a cadre of freaks and dumbasses chasing after an unlikable counterfeiter with the Lagoon crew smack dab in the middle of the nonsense thanks to Eda's scheming.

Added DiffLines:

* JobMindsetInertia: Rock was originally an office worker by trade, but after being stranded in Roanapur by his bosses and joining the title crew of mercenaries and pirates as TheFace, he couldn't give up his professional habits. The first episode of the anime, for instance, ends with him calling on the Black Lagoon's newest victim in a very polite, business-like manner to please surrender and hand over all of their valuables.

** Fabiola Iglesias is basically, a younger, [[{{Pettanko}} flatter]], nicer, and cuter version of [[ImplacableMan Roberta]].

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Roberta does this to some US soldiers in the El Baile de la Muerte arc, via shooting them with flechette with an old musket. The blast was powerful enough to penetrate their bulletproof vests.]]
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: It seems that every enemy or otherwise non-primary characters (and even primary characters if they get in a fight with each other) seem to have come from this academy.



* InactionSequence: Repeatedly mocked; trying to deliver a PreAssKickingOneLiner or InTheNameOfTheMoon speech with Revy around is a sure-fire way to get [[TalkToTheFist shot mid-sentence]].
* IndirectKiss: The notorious "cigarette kiss" between Revy and Rock right after their heated confrontation is a definite winner and also one of the series' numerous CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* InfantImmortality: [[spoiler: The creepy twins [[EnfantTerrible Hansel and Gretel]] and the two civilians unwittingly used by them as decoys [[AvertedTrope didn't]] get any special treatment.]]
* InformedAbility: Hotel Moscow is former [[ItsRainingMen company Vozdushno-desantnye voyska or Soviet para-trooper]]. We will never see their jump because this series is combination of land-based, mostly urban and jungle, and sea-based and their enemy mostly gangsters.

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Averted when Revy runs into a neo-Nazi soldier who takes time to brag about how awesome his gun is. Revy takes her time reloading her own pistols, then shoots the Nazi in mid-sentence and tells him to shut the fuck up.
