** The "fingers broken, everybody screams" scene, the "funny hat" scene, the "man sticking out of a manhole" scene... There's a lot of it. [[NarmCharm Not that there's anything wrong with that]].

* CompleteMonster: Durant is a crime boss turned PsychoForHire who is introduced having a potential obstacle's entire outfit executed before he tortures the boss by chopping off all his fingers with a cigar cutter. Durant later attacks Dr. Peyton Westlake, setting him on fire and ruining his life by turning him into the titular AntiHero Darkman. Durant thinks nothing of betraying and killing allies and when [[NotQuiteDead he returns in the second film]], he shows himself as even nastier than before, even having a reporter killed for insulting him in a story.

* HarsherInHindsight: With the passing of actor Larry Drake, the villainous Durant cheating death, and even being resurrected in the 4 issue Dynamite Publishing comic book miniseries ''Darkman Vs. Army Of Darkness'' becomes a little harder to watch.

*** Justified; Westlake's body is constantly pumping itself full of every chemical a human body is capable of generating, in an attempt to compensate for the total loss of his sense of touch. With all the crap running rampant in his bloodstream, it's little wonder his perceptions would be a bit...''skewed.''

* SpiritualLicensee: To some hardcore WWII comics fans, this film and the sequels would be the closest thing to a film adaptation of the DC war hero [[ComicBook/UnknownSoldier the Unknown Soldier]], except the action would shift from the Second World War to TheNineties and TheHero was a generic crime fighter rather then a U.S. military soldier.
