* JerkassWoobie: Cousin Avi isn't a nice man by any means -- in any other movie he'd probably be the villain -- but he's subjected to so many indignities over a diamond that is (sort of) supposed to be his anyway that by the end you almost start feeling sorry for him. It also helps that he appears to be a relatively BenevolentBoss to his employees and, compared to some (hello Brick Top) is far from being a CompleteMonster.

* CompleteMonster: Brick Top, whose EstablishingCharacterMoment shows him ordering the execution of a {{mook|s}} who had betrayed him, as well as a mook who had 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 who are terrified of him.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** "Golden Brown" by The Stranglers during the scene when Mickey knocks out Gorgeous George and "Fuckin' in the Bushes" by Oasis for Mickey's last fight are particularly excellent examples.
** "Disco Science" by Mirwais during the hare coursing scene definitely qualifies for this.
** Massive Attack's "Angel" is perfect for making [[spoiler:the burning camper scene]] all the more intense.
