* YanksWithTanks: The American military's presence is felt throughout the series. Lehm, Wiley and Echo were former Delta Force operators; SR is implied to have been sponsored by the NSA; George Black was a former Marine, Hex was former US Army Special Forces, and Night Nine, SEAL Team Nine's Alpha Platoon, is deployed against Koko in Cuba.

** This never makes sense as the team the SEALs were pursuing were right there shooting at them. So, they had no reason to leave and definitely no way to be fooled into thinking what, that they their firefight was just their imagination. Because nothing else is conceivable for any reason to cause them to just walk away.

* AuthorTract: Surprisingly [[AvertedTrope averted]]. Even though it would've been real easy for the author to use the taboo subject material as an excuse for him to use the series as an outlet to espouse his political views. Thankfully, he chose the high road.

* CrazyAwesome: While not to the extent of ''Anime/BlackLagoon'', many of the fight scenes and characters run on this. Can't shoot a bulletproof armored van while driving down the road at 60 miles an hour? No problem, just jump on the roof, jump across to their car, slip inside while they're reloading and slit all their throats. Anti-tank missile? Please. Throw it off course with a grenade explosion.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilBrit: Excalibur; the British [=PMC=] group who accompany Koko's crew in episode nineteen exemplify this trope. With each of them being depicted as a pair of crass, volatile, [[SociopathicSoldier trigger-happy sociopaths]], with no sense of morality. Going so far as to fire upon a passing vehicle without even checking if it was a threat or not. Thankfully, [[EveryoneHasStandards Koko]] fires them on the spot for this, chewing out their leader and calling him a "limey thug".


Added DiffLines:

* [[UsefulNotes/NavySEALs Navy [=SEAL=]s]]: The CIA in Jormungand requests the deployment of the "Night Nine" a.k.a. SEAL Team 9's Alpha Platoon to eliminate Koko Hekmatyar's HCLI crew late in the second season. For extra badass credentials, their the only enemies that take zero casualties against HCLI, and the only reason HCLI survives is because Koko uses her quantum computer to screw with Night Nine's GPS and send them in the wrong direction, right up to the Cuban border. And even then they came very close to killing off Koko's crew.

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:At the end of the manga, the world has devolved into chaos following the activation of Jormungand. China and Indonesia are in dire economic straits, with race riots raging in Jakarta, Africa and South America are wracked by continent spanning civil wars, Europe is under constant attack by terrorist groups, and Russia has become the new Soviet Union, starting a new Cold War with the United States. Meanwhile, the Sixth UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict has erupted in the Middle East, and [[UsefulNotes/TheIndoPakistanConflict the Indo-Pakistan conflict]] has also restarted. Australia seems to be the only one safe but it's only a matter of time before it gets entrapped into the chaos.]]

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