** On an earlier arc, Inspector Percy manages to walk away from trying to kill Bean (and Rally as collateral damage) by means of blackmailing them with their bank accounts--they could kill him, they could try to put him in jail, but the funds would then be seized by the police and "disappear". He's let go and doesn't appears again on the manga.



** Of course, literally hurting animals is the one thing she has standard for. Any other evil act that would fall under the definition of the term--including sending brainwashed people to kill everything you love or turning you into a sex slave (or brainwashing you and sending you to kill everything you love)--she has absolutely no problem with.



* LegCannon: Bonnie's first encounter with the Gunsmith cats went badly for her: Rally shot her thumb off and one of May's grenades blew off her legs below the knee. When she returned for revenge her new prosthetic replacements included a shotgun in one leg (with a bomb in that foot) and a thumb that included a garrotte.

## It replicates the effects of ''three entirely different and distinct drugs'' - a small amount is a stimulant like cocaine, a larger amount is a euphoric similar to heroin, and the entire contents of a vial combines both with a powerful hallucinogenic effect similar to phencyclidine or lysergic acid diethylamide. She thus takes customers from three existing groups and ''keeps'' them, especially as...

## It's as cheap to make as methamphetamines - though possibly requiring expensive equipment as Bean is sent halfway across the country to New York for a shipment - so Goldie can outbid all her rivals.

## It does have one exactly one downside; It puts users in a [[CharmPerson hypnotic state]], enabling them to be used as catspaws. She gets a ''lot'' of mileage out of this, tearing through the few rivals she can't buy out by simply subverting their forces. [[spoiler:One person she suborns such is ''Rally's father.'']] This doesn't diminish its customer base, as junkies aren't exactly rational or forward-thinking.

In the closet. ''Right next to her.'' Bean walks out of the bathroom, opens the closet door, grabs an outfit and leaves. answers his phone, completely unaware that Rally is crouching at his feet, eyes level with his crotch. While the reader doesn't see anything, a crouching Rally gets an eyeful.eyeful. For several minutes as Bean chats away. And given her internalized shrieking, she's... [[BiggerIsBetterInBed intimidated]] by what she sees.

* FriendOnTheForce: Roy Coleman. A good examination in that the relationship gets him into ''lots'' of trouble despite Rally's most honest efforts; hanging around a trouble magnet isn't really good for one's career, and he ultimately ends up transferring away from Chicago due to the damage to his reputation.

* LovelyAngelsLovelyAngels: A strange example, in that Rally is the clear-headed, celibate one despite being, better built, a year older and a ''far'' better combatant, and May is the irresponsible sex kitten who often has to be rescued despite being a MadBomber who [[OlderThanTheyLook looks like a pre-teen]].

* PsychoLesbian: Goldie again.Defied in that both Rally and Misty are rational and empathetic lesbians - though Rally is celibate and both find Bean rather attractive.
