* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands: Happens once to Mingchao, and another time to Blush, Alternate, and Baskerville. In a variation of the trope, Alternate had his gun knocked from his hand by Baskerville's knives, and Cavanaugh had a knife knocked from her hand by a rock.

* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: Cavanaugh]] gets killed this way. If having [[spoiler: her]] neck pierced by a dagger didn't do it, then [[spoiler: getting shot by Ming-Chao's Eto Gun]] and falling down a high floor certainly did.
