* BadassGrandpa: Numerous examples in the Fang Pi Clang due to the OldMaster trope; ditto for La Junta's Archibald who is an example of the OldSoldier trope. Kalindra of the Frozn is a female example. Hilly Billy of the Berzerk is an AxeCrazy example.

You boost your cards power with Pillz tokens, and there is a great deal of bluffing and trying to get an edge on your opponent in Pillz. The individual cards gain experience and evolve, becoming stronger and more useful. You gain in-game currency with each victory, and can even earn Credits with missions, and can get everything this way, albeit [[BribingYourWayToVictory very slowly.]] Buying random booster packs to increase your collection faster is as big in this as in any physical TCG.

Each group of cards represents one [[GangOfHats gang]] in the WorldGoneMad that is Clint City. Only a tiny minority of these represent traditional GangBangers, however. Playable groups range from the mob and the police to surfer dudes and martial artists to invading aliens and anthropomorphic inhabitants of the Clint City Zoo. This game is an absolute hive of CaptainErsatz, with many characters being obvious pastiches of famous actors or characters.

* AbsurdlyLongLimousine: The Uppers CurbstompBattle animation involves the enemy getting ran over by one (and peed on by a chihuaua) whenever you win by a large margin with a member of the Uppers.

* BilingualBonus: Serbo-Croatian, of all things. A very conspicuous number of character names and references in the game are quite specifically Yugoslav, from the leader of the Freaks being Boris and looking exactly like Rade 各rbeđija (see Boris the Bullet Dodger in Snatch), Poldachie-Golgovine being Bosnia-Herzegovina, Zlatar simply meaning "Goldsmith" to several Asian character names being embarassingly close to racial slurs. Especially guilty is Kinjo, which is pronounced Kinyo and transletes to something like "Chinkie" (from Keena = China), an outright slur. Lee Moon's name is actually the punchline of a somewhat lame joke, well known to anyone from former Yugoslavia (as an example of an IncrediblyLamePun ) - Q: "What is the most yellow person in Asia called?" A: "Lee Moon!" (Leemoon, spelled Limun, means Lemon, har, har, har.) There are more Yugoslavian refferrences in this game than I've seen in any media product ever.

* BribingYourWayToVictory: It costs money to buy "credits", which can be used to buy booster packs. However, individual cards are traded for "clintz", an in-game currency that can be won in battles or earned through selling cards. All in all, the game can be played without spending a single cent, but dishing out cash gets you cards faster. After all, this ''is'' a CollectibleCardGame

* IKnowMaddenKombat: This is the angle behind the All Stars gang, each member of whom is a fighter who uses skills from their specific sport to beat ass like a pro. While the standard hockey (Alexei), football (Randy), soccer (Striker), baseball (Lamarr), rugby (Loma Noju) and basketball (Mikki) types are present, more esoteric examples include Bhudd, the zen martial arts master and ace bowler; Dan, ping pong expert and channeller of dark forces; and Robb, a legendary champion at darts who uses his flinging skills as a guerilla.

** Rescue is a clan of [[CombatMedic Combat Medics]]--though strangely, their bonus is not centered around regaining life.
* MightyLumberjack: The first boss card you get in your collection is a lumberjack. He starts looking like the stereotype and hulks out when levelling up. Also adds bonus damage to the whole team.
