* TheAlcoholic: Ballu.
* ActionGirl: Ganga.
** FauxActionGirl: Arguably. Although she is a police officer and has infiltrated a group of bandits by posing as a dancer, she ends up in waaay over her head, and doesn't really do much fighting. In fact, she usually tries to talk her way out of problems. May be justified in that she's making it up as she goes.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Subverted with Ganga; she admires her boyfriend's badassery, and isn't about to leave him for that outlaw Ballu.
** Played straight with Sophia, the [[DarkChick woman]] who later becomes Ballu's girlfriend
