* LighterAndSofter: The second game, relatively. While the gameplay is as brutal and [[RatedMForManly manly]] as ever, its tone is subtly different: "your" side is much less morally ambiguous[[note]]A rebellion against an oppressive military government, vs. an ex-cartel enforcer out only for revenge[[/note]], and the cutscenes are much more exaggerated[[labelnote:Spoilers]]Compare Magnus' death from exploding from a grenade punched into his chest, to the lingering shot of Cesar as [[WhiteShirtOfDeath blood from his mortal wound spreads across his white shirt.[[/labelnote]]. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Swearing is also much less common.]]

* HeroicSecondWind: Extreme example at the end of the first game. After Shank [[spoiler: is sucker-punched and shot at point-blank range by Cesar]], he just gets up, [[spoiler: effortlessly dodges every other attack]], finishes the job, and walks away without so much as a limp.

* CounterAttack: Possible in both games but with different triggers.



* MadeOfIron: All enemies, as well as Shank himself. Enemies can easily get up and start shooting you again even after you've rammed a chainsaw into their stomachs. The big guys can take ''several grenades to the face'' and still come charging after you.
* MadeOfPlasticine: According to the cutscenes in the second game, it is entirely possible to tear out a shark's jaws from its mouth with bare hands, chop someone into multiple pieces by [[spoiler:entangling them in a chain that has blades only on its tip and pulling it taut only once]], punch a grenade through someone's sternum into their chest, and cleanly decapitate someone with the ''blunt edge'' of a shank barely as long as a person's neck is wide.

** Large enemies in the second game have different CounterAttack animations depending on whether the attack finishes them off. When Shank counters by snatching their weapons and ramming the weapons into their chests, that's the ''non-finishing'' animation. The enemy will be momentarily delayed pulling the weapon out of his chest but will be fighting fit otherwise.
