* 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 Šerbeđija (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), a literal 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 a stupid joke) - Q: "What is the most yellow person in Asia called?" A: "Lee Moon!" (Leemoon, spelled Limun, means Lemon, har, har, har.)

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

* CoolVersusAwesome: Exaggerated, as most (if not all) conflicts between any too clan would already be an example of the trope.
