* CowboyCop: Sleepy takes this trope and breaks it over his knee. It's hard to tell if he's meant to be a parody of such characters or is meant to be taken serious by the writers.

* TestosteronePoisoning: Ridiculously so. As with Sleepy's CowboyCop methods mentioned above, it's unclear if the series' over-the-top machismo is meant to be a parody or not.

** In the manga, Sleepy spares Nickel the Electrician several times. This is the only assassin that has come close to killing him more than once, and arguably the only person still standing that is an actual threat to Sleepy. Yet every single time Sleepy has a gun to the guy's head, Sleepy spares him because usually [[BetterTheDevilYouKnow Nickel's sugar piss is easy to smell coming]].

A series of {{OAV}}s by Creator/MagicBus were released in 1991, and as you can imagine they're pretty violent. The anime unfortunately only represents four of the many stories of the manga. By the way, this series is by [[Manga/LoneWolfAndCub Kazuo Koike]].

''Mad Bull 34'' is a manga published between 1986 and 1990 in the "Young Jump" magazine in Japan, then picked up again in 1999-2001 with a retcon plot. It revolved around fresh young rookie Daizaburo "Eddie" Ban being sent to New York's toughest precinct, the 34th. Here he meets the man who's been assigned as his partner, John "Sleepy" Estes (a/k/a "Mad Bull"). At first the two couldn't be more different if they tried. Eddie is the more by-the-book type of cop, while the only book John probably uses would be promptly bludgeoned into the skull of some random perp, then followed up by half a mag of bullets. Yet despite this, they eventually come to an understanding/mutual respect (much to the chagrin of their superiors) as they tackle a revolving door of increasingly over-the-top villains.

* AdaptedOut: Nickel in the OVA.

* AdaptedOut: Nickel Nickels in the OVA.



* AssassinOutclassin: A running gag in the manga is every single hitman in eastern America has their eyes on taking out the famous "Mad Bull" Estes. These guys are usually black men with various degrees of heavy automatic weaponry; though every now and then Ninja Hookers or Diabetic Tinkers get involved. Nickel is the only one who's survived to try more than once.

* ArsonMurderAndLifeSaving: Seems to only happen once, in the first installment, at the end, when Sleepy's questionable actions are brought into question by the higher-ups, and the only reason they don't strip the big guy of his badge (and presumably set it on fire) is an impassioned speech by Daizaburo.

* BuddyCopShow: Almost a parody of such aspects. Though, as mentioned before, it's hard to tell. [[spoiler:Then Daizaburo gets killed]].

* MoralDissonance: A minor case. Sleepy murders hundreds of criminals, including arguably petty ones, on a daily basis... yet when [[DirtyCop Demeyer]] extracts information from a drug pusher by threatening to tell his son what he's been doing, Sleepy looks at him like he's the worst person alive.
** For good reason. [[DirtyCop Demeyer]] was going to drag the guy through his kid's school letting everyone there know that he was a criminal, and [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mad_bull_34/v02/c019/7.html this]] would've happened.

* TankGoodness: In the end of the third OVA, the last assassin comes in with an APC to blow away our protagonists. Sleepy's response? ''Lift it''.

* BatmanGambit: When Sleepy is forced to relinquish his right to use firearms and Daizaburo is transferred to Perrine as her partner, he eventually makes a bet with DaChief. If Daizaburo claims that a DirtyCop shot someone in self-defense, Sleepy leaves the force. Otherwise, Sleepy gets to join Daizaburo and Perrine as their partner, the right to use firearms again, and to use the precinct's helicopter anytime he wanted. DaChief accepted, thinking that Daizaburo was in the dirty cop's pockets. He wasn't.
** The abduction of RonaldReagan by Sleepy.
