* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: When Stringfellow corners Moffett, he unloads Airwolf's entire weapons payload into his Jeep, with Dom only able to close his eyes in the back seat as String continues to fire everything with BerserkerTears until he's squeezing the trigger repeatedly on an empty barrel.
** Hawke's usual operating procedure. He does try to avoid bloodshed when he can, and he gives enemies the chance to surrender whenever possible, but when he shoots he doesn't just shoot to kill, he makes sure ''no one'' is walking away.

Zig-Zagged. It's Hawke's usual operating procedure. He procedure, though he does try to avoid bloodshed when he can, and he gives enemies the chance to surrender whenever possible, but possible. But when he shoots shoots, he doesn't just shoot to kill, kill - he makes sure ''no one'' is walking away.

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Hawk does this ''full-on'' after [[spoiler: Gabrielle dies due to Moffett’s torture of her.]] He plows through numerous Libyan tanks, aircraft, and surface-to-air missiles, then finally comes to a tense stand-off with Moffett, all while [[ThousandYardStare stoically]] not saying a word. Before Moffett can use his pistol in a [[ImprobableAimingSkills near-miraculous, last-ditch attempt]] to bring down Airwolf, [[note]]Moffett had explained to a Lybian officer earlier in the episode Airwolf’s "weak point": a single bullet into the mid-air refueling intake. [[/note]] Hawke unloads Airwolf’s '''ENTIRE''' remaining missile cache on him...even continuing to pull the trigger switch after all are depleted. Dom finally breaks Hawke out of his daze...
--> "''String''......it's done."



-->'''Dom:''' ''String''......it's done.

* AWolfInSheepsClothing: Invoked if not actually used. The design concept was a [[JustPlaneWrong supersonic attack helicopter]] whose weapons were hidden in pods so it could pass as a fancy executive transport. The flight suits' shoulder patches even featured a Wolf In Sheep's Clothing design.

The show is well known for its theme music that combined techno with a humming meant to invoke helicopter blades. It also includes some very impressive low-level helicopter flying. Airwolf itself was a Bell 222A helicopter with extensive cosmetic modifications to make it appear to be a futuristic military prototype, the actual aircraft was destroyed after the end of the series in a fatal crash while being used as an air ambulance.
