* RatedMForManly: It's fundamentally a game about a muscular, gravelly-voiced {{badass}} called "Shank" tearing through hordes of {{Mook}}s with knives, so this is a given.

* BagOfSpilling: A variation; at the start of the second game, Shank starts off with a pair of machete (likely the same pair he used in the first game) as his "heavy" weapon, and throwing knives for ranged attacks. He eventually gets his starting combo from the first game (pair of handguns and a chainsaw) as he progresses.

* DropTheHammer: The last weapon you get in the second game. Very slow, but hits like a truck.
* DualWielding: Shank always has at least two shanks in his hands.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Elena's not his mother, she just ran the orphanage where he grew up, but tough-as-nails criminal gangster Shank loves her anyway.

He's unflinchingly loyal and kind to his girlfriend [[spoiler: after she sees him and his partner trying to kill the Deputy Mayor]], and has to be restrained from attacking Angelo after he casually shoots a priest. Even [[spoiler:Cesar]] has a hint of this when Shank reveals that [[spoiler:Eva was pregnant when they killed her]], telling Shank, "Had I known she was [[spoiler:with child]], that would have changed things..."

* NotSoStoic: Unlike in the first game wear Shank sometimes feature a range of different emotions beside anger. He 's pretty unflappable in Shank 2, except when he kills the Cannibal King Obleng and sees his fellow cannibals eating his corpse. He looks at eh scene with a clearly freaked out face.

* SleevesAreForWimps: In the first game Shank, wears a shirt with ripped sleeves. Averted in the Second game where he actually where a T-hirt although there are small tears on the sleeves. This doesn't diminish his badassery however.
