!!'''This movie contains examples of:'''
* BadassPreacher: One who won't let getting his ''tongue'' torn out stop his singing.
* BlackComedy: A woman is sexually assaulted by an AIDS-ridden man. It leads to ''one of the funniest lines in the film''.

* TheDeterminator: Parker is cornered by several terrorists, who proceed to pump so many bullets into him, he's more lead than flesh. ''And he's still alive'', at least until [[TheQuisling Kirkland]] shoots him in the head.
%%* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Cooney]]
* HandicappedBadass: The blind girl; at first a subversion, but then... "I can still ''hear'' you!"
* KukrisAreKool: Parker. Uses it to cut his enemies' ears off, to make into a necklace. Of human ears. Yeah.
* MoreDakka: ''Ya think?'' At the time(and probably ''still''), the record holder for most bullets fired in a single movie.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Parker is so ''obviously'' based on director Creator/LloydKaufman's old buddy, ''Creator/OliverStone''.

* YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord: A variant - "This is Senor Sida. SIDA is ''our'' word for what your people call ''AIDS''." (Incidentally, SIDA really ''is'' the acronym for the Spanish name for AIDS.)
