* EarnYourHappyEnding: Even if the story is overtly cynical, any character who actually survive can finally have peace prior to their hellish experience.

Aira Mu is based on Princess Aira from God Mazinger Honey Asuka is based on Honey Kisaragi from Cutey Honey.

* SuperStrength: Jack has this ability, allowing him to carve through flesh and bone with a jackknife and even rip people apart with his bare hands. It's not MadeOfPlasticine because nobody else gets mutilated like this unless Jack is the one doing the killing. Of course, given the true nature of Jack's origins, it's justified.

''Violence Jack'' is a manga by GoNagai that was released from 1973 to 1990. It's a sequel to Manga/{{Devilman}} and both a sequel ''and'' prequel to DevilmanLady. The series is particularly infamous for not only including large amounts of sex and gory violence, but also has cameos from several of Go Nagai's other manga as well. In fact, many of the chapters seem to be dedicated to taking classic GoNagai series and then [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructing]] them by placing them in Violence Jack's brutal setting.

* AfterTheEnd: Violence EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The Harlem Bomber OVA compared to the following two. Jack is probably looks far more monstrous and acts much more bestial, saying a single sentence in the first post-apocalyptic anime/manga series, entire movie, and is also closer to manga canon by being indifferently murderous towards everyone in his path; even pre-dating ''FistOfTheNorthStar''.his PetTheDog moment (sparing Kenichi despite the latter stabbing him in the eye) is undone [[spoiler: when he kills Kenichi and almost kills Kenichi's girlfriend to use their escape vehicle as a weapon]]. The follow-up episodes, he looks less monstrous, is more talkative, and is generally a nicer guy -- he still brutally massacres people, but only evil ones.

* LighterAndSofter: Despite the notes about the OVAs under DarkerAndEdgier above, both the OVA version of Evil Town and of Hell's Wind are far lighter than the manga, or even the Harlem Bomber OVA. Jack is shown in almost "good guy" terms, being willing to use his capacity for violence only on scumbags who deserve it and deliberately trying to help people who are innocent. Hell, most of the "good guys" in the second and third OVAs actually survive, even if they do get tortured and/or raped. * LipstickLesbian: Honey Kisaragi and Aila Mu.

Blue may be a transwoman/gay dragqueen in the manga, but is a depraved woman in the OAV. The unpixelated Hong Kong version proves it.

Then he snaps, ''eats her corpse'' and promptly mutates into a monster that almost manages to kill Jack in revenge. When he dies, he has a dying ramble about how happy he is to be with Blue again in hell.]]

* AnimalMotif: Jack and tigers. His art in the Harlem Bomber OAV makes it more blatant, giving him a mouthful of a "tiger-like" fangs. In the subsequent OAVs, he has pronounced canines (to make the teeth reference more subtle), and his wild hair style branches across his cheeks, to invoke a tiger's whiskers/stripes.

* ArtShift: There is a big difference between Jack's depiction in the Harlem Bomber OAV and in subsequent OAVs.
