* HeyItsThatGuy: Mullet is played by Ewen Bremner, who also played the ''very'' similar Spud in ''Film/{{Trainspotting}}''.

* CompleteMonster: [[LondonGangster Brick Top]], whose EstablishingCharacterMoment shows him ordering the execution of a {{mook|s}} who had betrayed him, as well as a mook who had [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves reported the betrayal]]. He has them tasered and suffocated with plastic bags, after which they are to be dismembered and fed to pigs. He shows even more of his ruthlessness as he shows absolutely no compunction about having a clan of UsefulNotes/IrishTravellers murdered if one of their number doesn't fight for him in a rigged boxing match and orders the fighter's mother burned alive in her trailer for demonstration. There are two kinds of characters in that movie: those who have never heard of Brick Top and those [[TheDreaded who are terrified of him]].

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: The movie is very similar in style, theme, setting and characters to Guy Ritchie's earlier ''LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels'', so while ''{{Snatch}}'' was still more or less well-received, most of the criticism revolved around Ritchie essentially retreading old ground.

* NightmareFuel: Just... Brick Top in general. Particular mention goes to his calm, matter-of-fact lecture on the best method to dispose of a body.

* CompleteMonster: [[LondonGangster Brick Top]]. He does seem like a much lighter example, though, since almost all of his atrocities are implied. Nevertheless, he is [[EstablishingCharacterMoment first shown]] ordering two {{Mooks}} tasered and suffocated with plastic bags, after which they are to be dismembered and fed to pigs. He then threatens to murder a clan of UsefulNotes/IrishTravellers if one of their number doesn't fight for him in a rigged boxing match and [[spoiler:orders the fighter's mother to be burned alive in her trailer]] for demonstration. There are two kinds of characters in that movie: those who have never heard of Brick Top and those [[TheDreaded who are terrified of him]].

* OneSceneWonder: The agent at Brick Top's bookie's (played by an uncredited Julianne Nicholson), whose attitude during the entire robbery scene can best be described as "bored resignation" whether explaining why there isn't any money or thwarting the robbery single-handedly.
