* BigBad - Joe Fang in the first two games [[spoiler: as well as the third.]]
* BigNo - Whenever a hostage gets shot, they usually yell "NOOOO!"
* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands - Called a Justice Shot if done in the games. In the first game, it's called a "Nice Bullseye" outside Japan.
* BoomHeadshot - ''Virtua Cop'' is possibly the UrExample of this in video games. In ''Virtua Cop 3'', however, this is not a good thing. It doesn't give nearly as many points as a Justice Shot, and doesn't even allow for a 3-hit combo followup.
* BossOnlyLevel - The fourth and final missions of ''2'' and ''3''.
* BossRush - The true final stage of ''3''.
* BulletTime - Exceeding Sense mode
* {{Cap}} - ''Virtua Cop 3'' has a score cap of 99,999,999. It is very possible to achieve this if you understand the scoring mechanics well (and, of course, don't die).
* CarFu - On his last bit of health, Wolf, ''Virtua Cop 2'''s Beginner stage boss, will throw a van at you!
* FairCop - The three main characters.
* HostageSpiritLink - Stupid hostages popping out of nowhere...

* ImprobableAimingSkills - In ''Virtua Cop 3'', one must wonder how is it possible that shooting away the metal beams that falling on you would end up falling down onto the criminals in front of you, while they're taking hostages.
* ISurrenderSuckers - Kong, the boss of the Beginner stage in ''Virtua Cop'', tries to pull this on you when he's one shot away from death.
* JetPack - [[WolfpackBoss The Aero-Divers]] and Joe Fang himself fly in one in ''Virtua Cop 2''.
* NeverFoundTheBody - The plot of ''Virtua Cop 2'' says that after Joe Fang's helicopter was destroyed, his body was never found. Then, he returns as the final boss of the game but flies in a jetpack instead.
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel]] - [[spoiler:At the end of the BossRush Stage of ''Virtua Cop 3'', you face Joe Fang yet again, this time having mutated into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ABNqWehWr0 a giant green gargoyle wielding an equally massive minigun (skip to 13:30)]], that looks like a freakish mutation of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Bizarro-Sephiroth]], [[VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead The Wheel Of Fate]], and [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 the Heavy]]. ]]
