* {{Homage}}: To the Film/LordOfWar. Jormungand replays a scene from this film, when some mafioso tries to pay for guns with cocaine instead of money. Since Koko, unlike Yuri Orlov, got a squad of badass bodyguards, the outcome is very, very different.

* {{Badass}}: Koko's whole entire group -- logically, since they were hired for it. They've come up against assassination squads, corporations, several armies and militia groups and the CIA, all without losing a member until Volume 7 [[spoiler: when a rogue CIA SOG team kills R in the Czech Republic.]] They get a B-52 load of bombs for their transgression. The only group who had them on the ropes were the [[spoiler: [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous Navy SEALs of Night Nine]]]]
** BadassCrew: Let's put it this way: During the BeachEpisode, we see everyone with their shirts off and everyone is rippling. Including Valmet and Jonah!

* CrapsackWorld: At the end of the series, the world starts [[FromBadToWorse devolving]] into this. China and Indonesia are mired in a crippling economic depression, 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 ArabIsraeliConflict has erupted in the Middle East, and [[UsefulNotes/TheIndoPakistanConflict the Indo-Pakistan conflict]] has also restarted. Really, Australia is the only country not significantly affected by the world's deterioration, though that may change once the much rumored WorldWarIII starts.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Many viewers have critique Jonah's combat tactics in the Dubai arc since it can easily get him killed. Others have pointed out his guerrilla background, which gives justification to him charging at Maestro.

* HimeCut: Koko is a white-haired example, Valmet a black haired one. Both are not Japanese.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGhost: Koko's father (and boss) Floyd. He's mentioned frequently but never seen or directly heard from. All we know about him is that Koko hates his guts, and the two aren't speaking.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Koko and her henchmen are quite good at assuming that the people they're dealing with might backstab them, so they have backup plans ready. They also go for [[CombatPragmatist the most efficient]] means of taking down particularly dangerous enemies.
** Knowing that Jonah will follow her no matter what, Valmet drugs his breakfast. Knowing that Valmet will drug him, Jonah doesn't eat enough to be permanently knocked out.

* {{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/TeamAmerica Gary]] action-figure, an exercise set, and a lot of high class makeup[[/note]]
