* GenreSavvy: The moment Guerrero is thrown into jail, he starts making a shiv out of a spoon (among other tools). And the moment, he gets a cellmate, he politely asks the guy to come back in five minutes since his isn't done yet (cue a show of the half-shaved spoon). [[spoiler: Guerrero wins regardless.]]

* AntiHero: Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley) again. He lies, steals, breaks in, hacks, and performs a library of other acts of questionable legality, but in the name of the greater good. He even shows he has a sense of loyalty and standards. When it comes to bad guys though, he can be surprisingly villainous down to threatening their families - threats the villains (those who know who he is) know he's willing to carry out.
** Ames from Season 2 is also a good example

** 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.
