** To put it simple, Guerrero is [[TokenEvilTeamMate a psychopath]] that luckily is on the good guys' side.
*** Well, maybe just a sociopath...he seems to have a bit of a conscience, after all.
*** Which means he became the way he is over time. Which means there's an origin of Guerrero. Yes!
*** A heavy dose of it seems to be loyalty to Chance. Which is probably a good thing as most episodes show sequences where he's not with Chance and those instances usually involve him being, well, Batman with far less moral standards on what it means to be a good guy. Where Chance is happy to simply protect people that come to him, Guerrero actively goes out and terrorizes people.

''Human Target'' is the story of Christopher Chance, a bodyguard and private detective for hire who impersonates his clients in order to draw out whoever is threatening them and 'eliminate' them. It has its roots as a DCComics comic book, and has been adapted as a TV series twice: once in Summer of 1992 on Creator/{{ABC}}, and another that premiered in January 2010 on {{Fox}}.

* ShoutOut: In the pilot, Chance and Winston are paid by client [[DarkAngel Lydecker]] in [[Film/DieHard Takagi]] whiskey, and at the end of the episode, the new protectee is [[Film/LethalWeapon Danny Glover]].
** In "Sanctuary", the head of a robbery gang's name is [[SplinterCell Sam Fisher.]] Looks like the guy decided to retire and be a crook instead.
** In "Lockdown", Layla's username is [[Film/{{Watchmen}} "Nite Owl"]]. Granted, she's a security guard, but still...
** Carmine, the rottweiler, is named after Carmine Infantino the co-creator of ''Human Target''.
** "Salvage & Reclamation" has several to ''Franchise/IndianaJones''.
** "Imbroglio" had a reference to ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'', particularly 2008's ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' with the hostages being framed as gunmen by using their disguises on them.
** "Kill Bob" despite its name has a huge shout outs to ''MrAndMrsSmith'' with more than one reference placed into the very iconic dinner scene from the movie... ''with'' the appropriate background "Assassin's Date" score (or an homage score that's very much like it. I couldn't tell.)
