* FollowTheLeader: The original ''Dead to Rights'' was an attempt to copy ''VideoGame/MaxPayne,'' with limited success. It was, in turn, followed by ''VideoGame/TrueCrimeStreetsOfLA,'' which actually had a superior take on the idea of a snarky cop on the edge who mixed martial arts with gunplay, but somehow less memorable overall.

* BagOfSpilling: Exaggerated in the first game, where not only does Jack lose all his weapons in-between chapters even if he's just going straight from one location to another one next-door, but the game will go out of its way to get him to drop everything ''during'' a chapter. There's even one {{Egregious}} scene during the Chinatown chapter where Jack is ambushed by police and drops his weapons right before a gang of Triads gun them down. This cutscene serves absolutely no purpose than to get Jack to lose all his weapons just in time for the next batch of armed mooks to attack.

Added DiffLines:

* WrongfulAccusationInsurance: Averted in the first game in the sense that Jack never actually clears his name. He also straight up murdered the head prison guard in cold blood during his escape for no reason other than the guy was kind of an asshole, to say nothing of the mass mayhem he causes trying to track down his father's killers.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: [[BigBad Dick Hennessey]]]] is all too confident in the first game's final confrontation that Slate's marched to his death and he'll get off scott-free. Then Slate reveals he got out key evidence under his nose as a news report drops the names of the conspirators.
--> [[spoiler: ''Hennessy:'']] What did you do? ''[[SuddenlyShouting WHAT did you DO?!]]''
