** [[{{Samurai}} Ginji]] [[{{Badass}} Matsuzaki]]. Oddly, the other characters introduced in the same arc as him are [[TheScrappy Scrappys.]]

** Mr. Chang. It speaks volumes that BoisterousBruiser Revy is willing to acknowledge him as more {{Badass}}, admitting to "not being on his level yet." Fans also like him for being reasonable, uber-cool in the face of danger, and for being modeled after Chow Yun-Fat.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Just who ''is'' Eda, really? Is she a goofy so-called nun [[spoiler:who only occasionally who takes her job as a CIA agent seriously]]? Or is she really [[spoiler:a cold, domineering mastermind whose appearance to others is merely a convincing deception]]? Whatever it is, she's definitely not who she appears to be.

** The OVA also did not animate two key scenes from this arc in the manga: namely, [[spoiler:Major Caxton realizing and sharing with Rock his suspicions that Dutch may be a PhonyVeteran,]] and secondly, [[spoiler:the final chat between Rock & Chang on the dock after all was said and done,]] leading many to question why such important parts were omitted, although this has yet to be followed up on in the manga.

* HeReallyCanAct: When Rock is acting as a TranslatorBuddy, Brad Swaille is speaking some very accurately-pronounced Japanese.

** [[MagnificentBastard Balalaika]] is hot. [[DarkActionGirl Revy]] is [[{{Stripperific}} hot]]. [[KnifeNut Shenhua]] is [[ShesGotLegs hot]]. [[CorruptChurch Eda]] is [[NaughtyNuns hot]]. All of the main female characters are, to some degree, evil (as is everybody else in this series). And they are hot.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Shane Caxton refuses to give his men order to shoot Roberta when she attacks them. This is supposed to be a magnanimous gesture on his part: Feeling responsible for the death of Garcia's father, he intends to protect the life of another person Garcia cares about. Except this is also ''profoundly, terribly'' stupid. As a military commander, he is responsible for the lives of his men; neglectfully throwing away their lives like that is a legitimate cause for disobedience, if not outright mutiny. Furthermore, if all he wants to do is redeem himself in Garcia's eyes, then he could and should have just give up ''only'' himself. There is no need to involve his men.

* ArcFatigue: The El Baile de la Muerte (a.k.a. Roberta's Blood Trail) arc. It lasted three and a half years and was comprised of so many [[ThePlan plans]] that even fans were getting confused and frustrated at the end. Even the author admitted the arc was dragging. Made worse by the fact that the series went into ''massive'' ScheduleSlip immediately after. There seems to be a consensus amongst fans that the anime adaptation of the arc handled it better by cutting and condensing it down quite a bit.

** ''Black Lagoon'' can be said to be made of these, containing varying references to languages, firearms, music (From Creator/RobZombie to Music/CreedenceClearwaterRevival) and quite a few about Westerns like ''Film/TheWildBunch'' (one of the characters in which was called [[WildMassGuessing "Dutch"]]...). It also contains a surprising amount of philosophy themes such as Sartre's existentialism, consequence ethics, nihilism, phenomenalism, and Kierkegaard's "knight of faith" are openly discussed by characters (if not using those exact words).
