Added DiffLines:

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: General Magnus, leader of the Militia, is the FinalBoss for the second game. According to his bio, he's also a world champion in bare-knuckled boxing.


Added DiffLines:

* DeadlyDoctor: Magnus' physician in the second game serves as the penultimate boss, and he's tough as hell. Fittingly, he looks just like the Medic from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''


Added DiffLines:

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* GutturalGrowler: Shank has a very gravelly voice.


Added DiffLines:

* TheLadette: Corina. She's just as tough and violent as Shank, and she'' down a bottle of booze just as fast.


Added DiffLines:

* LikeBrotherAndSister: Shank and Corina were raised in the same orphanage, and thus have this relationship.


Added DiffLines:

* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Shank doesn't even blink whenever he sees a woman in skimpy clothing, and their attempts to grab his attention for nefarious purposes never work.
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Shank only reluctantly joins the Rebels in ''Shank 2'' because he needs their support to save Elena.


Added DiffLines:

* PerpetualFrowner: Shank has only two expressions: menacing scowl, and tooth-clenched rage.

* 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.
