This is the characters page for everyone in the ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'' series.


[[folder: The Team]]

!! In general
%%* BadassDriver: Everyone.
* BadassFamily: A multiracial, adopted/surrogate family, but the love and loyalty is there nevertheless.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Dom and the team will be the ''first'' to admit that they're not heroes or saints, but even they're horrified enough in ''Furious 6'' by Shaw's vicious crushing of innocent civilians under his tank that they deliberately change battle formation to protect said civilians from the psychopath's rampaging tank. [[spoiler:Letty exhibiting these same standards by criticizing Shaw while in the tank with him as a member of his crew is a quick hint that her time as a heel is soon to be over.]]
* NeverHurtAnInnocent: They're thieves, not murderers.
* TrueCompanions: All the members become this by the end of Five.
* UndyingLoyalty: More than most RealLife blood-families.

!Dominic "Dom" Toretto (VinDiesel)

%%* AntiHero
* {{Badass}}: He ''is'' played by VinDiesel, after all.
%%* BadassBaritone
%%* BadassDriver: ''The'' one for the series.
%%* BaldOfAwesome
* BashBrothers:
** With [[spoiler: Inspector Hobbs]] at the end of ''6''. [[FireForgedFriends Fighting each other/side by side has literally knocked a brotherly respect and admiration into each other.]]
** Likewise with Brian in the fourth, fifth and most of the finale for the sixth film.
* BerserkButton: Hurting/threatening his beloved extended-family gets him into his even ''more'' dangerous state of TranquilFury, in other words, prepare to die ''messily and painfully.''
* BigBrotherInstinct: Hurting his friends or little sister is not recommended. The last person who attempted the latter [[spoiler: got thrown out of a plane.]]
* BloodBrothers: With Brian.
%%* TheBigGuy
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: His EstablishingCharacterMoment as this comes when Brian saves him from the Police in the first film. Dom's just beaten Brian in a race and had no high opinion of him before the rescue, but afterwards he treats Brian with friendship and respect, showing just how important loyalty is to him. So yes, he is somewhat of a jerk, but stand up for him and he will die for you.
* TheCameo: [[spoiler:At the end of ''Tokyo Drift''.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: His father was a race car driver. One day, he gets into an accident and dies horribly. The next time Dom sees the driver who killed him, he nearly beats him to death, earning him two years in jail. Now he's extremely protective of his family, blood or otherwise.
* DeadpanSnarker: Brian comes to their store every day, gets the crappy tuna sandwich, and is clearly interested in Mia. This eventually gets him into a fight with Vince. Mia asks Dom to intervene.
-->'''Dom:''' What did you put in that sandwich?
* FatalFlaw: His short temper. It's what landed him in prison after he nearly beat a man to death with a wrench.
* GeniusBruiser: He was the mastermind of the gang in the first movie.
%%* GutturalGrowler
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While he can be a dick, he cares very, very much about his family and friends.
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer
-->'''Dom:''' (to Brian, regarding Mia) If you break her heart, I'll break your neck.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: His weapon of choice, as he's seen brandishing one in every movie he's appeared in [[spoiler: with the exception of ''Tokyo Drift''.]]
* TeamDad: To his extended family.
* TranquilFury: ''This'' state is even ''more'' dangerous, as combined with his Godlike driving skills, there is literally ''no'' place you can hide from his wrath. [[spoiler: Owen learned this the hard way.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: To his family and friends. A particularly strong example of this is shown in the the sixth film when [[spoiler:it's revealed that Letty is alive and well, but is also working for Shaw. When Brian states that maybe the Letty they knew is gone, Dom states word-for-word, "You don't turn your back on family. Even when they do." His loyalty is rewarded when he and Letty re-unite.]]
* UnstoppableRage: Don't send him into this state. Just... don't.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: In Furious 6 Dom and Hobbs defeat Klaus by teaming up to deliver a version of the Doomsday Device double team finishing manuever. Earlier in the fight he also delivered a flying headbutt to Klaus.

!Brian [=O'Conner=] (Creator/PaulWalker)

* BadassDriver: Is shown to be able to beat Dom in the fourth film and [[spoiler: actually accomplishes it in ''6'']].
* BecomingTheMask: Infiltrates the street racing scene and Toretto's crew as part of his undercover investigation, only to genuinely become part of both.
* BloodBrothers: With Dom.
* BoxedCrook: After the first movie, Brian was, for the most part, a fugitive from the law, out of a job in the L.A.P.D., with a very keen interest in underground street racing. When the U.S. Customs Service gets a hold of him, they cut him a deal in not letting him go to prison. This carries over to the FBI, who were actively trying to hunt him down.
* CharacterOutlivesActor: In February 2014, it was announced that ''Fast and Furious 7'' director James Wan and writer Chris Morgan have revised the script so the footage that Walker shot before his death can be used to retire his character Brian O'Conner without killing him off.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Roman.
* ConsummateLiar: He's so good at it that the FBI recruited him.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Brian had a neglectful childhood and eventually became a juvenile delinquent alongside his childhood friend, Roman Pearce. They both spent their last years underaged in a youth detention facility. He also has no memory of his [[DisappearedDad father]].
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* DisappearedDad: Brian told Dom that he didn't remember who his father was or what he looked like, showing that there's a strong possibility that Brian is an orphan, an adopted child, or maybe even a street kid.
%%* FairCop: He fits this trope to a T.
* FBIAgent: He gets promoted to one by the fourth film.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: In ''Fast Five'' where everyone uses guns, he simply punched his way out.
* InLoveWithTheMark: Well, with the mark's ''sister'', in the first movie.
* {{Misblamed}}: In the fourth and fifth films he's blamed for screwing things up for the Torettos and their friends because he…did absolutely nothing other than call in a medivac for Vince. Really, the only thing that would have changed had Brian not been involved would have been Vince getting killed off [[spoiler: earlier in the series]]. That or Dom would have been arrested when Brian saved him after the first street race.
* NervesOfSteel: As an undercover cop, this is a necessity. It earns the respect of Carter Verone in ''2 Fast 2 Furious'', since Brian can admit to Verone's face that Monica Fuentes is gorgeous without hesitation.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He admits that he's a very good liar and his ability to slip BeneathTheMask is one of the main reasons Brian was selected to be an undercover agent with the FBI.
* OfficerOHara: He's blond-haired, blue-eyed, fair-skinned, and both his first and last names are Irish in origin.
* RedOniBlueOni: Compared to the rest of the cast, he's very calm and collected most of the time. Surprisingly inverted with Dom, sometimes.
* RunningGag: He never manages to fairly beat Dom in any race. [[spoiler: Until ''6'', that is.]]
* SixthRangerTraitor: In the first film, Brian was an undercover cop while Dom, Letty, Leon, Vince, and Jesse were professional thieves.
* UndercoverCopReveal: In the first movie, he reveals himself to call for a medical helicopter to save Vince's life.

!Leticia "Letty" Ortiz (Creator/MichelleRodriguez)

* ActionGirlfriend: To Dom.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:She's killed off fifteen minutes into the fourth film. However...]]
* FaceHeelTurn: Appears to have made one in ''Fast and Furious 6''. [[spoiler:Subverted when it turns out she only joined up with Shaw because she had lost her memory and Shaw took advantage of that. She's genuinely disturbed at how little Shaw reacts when she tells him one of his men was killed, and when Shaw runs over cars with a tank, she tells him that it's not in the plan. After Dom saves her life, she re-unites with him and the team.]]
%%* HotBlooded
* [[MrFixit Ms. Fixit]]: She's a very good mechanic.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:Returns (in picture form) in TheStinger of the fifth movie, and is back for the sixth.]]
%%* OneOfTheBoys
%%* SpicyLatina
* TankTopTomboy: She's portrayed by MichelleRodriguez, so it's a given she'll be wearing one of these at some point.
%%* {{Tomboy}}
* UndyingLoyalty: To Dom. After his arrest, she contacted FBIAgent Brian O'Conner for help and became a double agent for Braga's crime ring in order to allow Dominic to return home. [[spoiler: Looks to be averted in ''Fast & Furious 6'' as she's shown to be TheDragon to Owen Shaw, even shooting Dom and walking away the first second she sees him in the film, then subverted as she rejoins the crew after Dom saves her life; it's foreshadowed even before then, as she shows disgust at some of Shaw's actions (barely reacting when Letty tells her one of his men was killed, running over cars in a tank for no reason), showing that even without her memory, [[EveryoneHasStandards her standards fall way more in line with Dom's code than Shaw's]].]]
* UnkemptBeauty: She's always covered in engine grease.
%%* WrenchWench

!Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster)

* BadassDriver: Is shown to be just as capable as her bro and boyfriend behind the wheel
* BrainyBrunette: She's much more invested in school than the others.
%%* TheChick
* CloserToEarth: Unlike the rest of Dom's crew, she's not very interested in racing cars and would much rather go to college and build a good (and legal) life for herself.
* DemotedToExtra: Her role in part six is greatly reduced this time around, due to her looking after her child through most of it.
* GirlNextDoor: Mia comes across as this during the first film.
* OnlySaneMan: She was ''very'' against her brother's carjackings in the first film and warned him that nothing good could come of it.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: "I don't date my brother's friends."
* TheSmartOne: She wanted to go to college and definitely qualifies as the most rational and level-headed in her family and group of friends.
* TeamMom: She pretty much takes care of her brother and his friends, despite being younger than most of them.
* UndyingLoyalty: To her brother and friends.

!Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson)

%%* BadassDriver
%%* BigEater
* BlackBestFriend: To Brian.
* ButtMonkey: He keeps getting the short end of the stick.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Brian.
* ConsummateLiar: He's a "fast-talker"; or in other words, someone who can lie through anything.
* CoolPlane: Seen onboard a private jet in the early scenes of ''6'', with the words [[spoiler:IT'S ROMAN, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BITCHES]]!]] plastered on the rudder.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: It's very likely that Roman had a neglectful childhood and eventually became a juvenile delinquent alongside his childhood friend, Brian O'Conner. They both spent their last years underaged in a youth detention facility.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* HandsomeLech: He likes the ladies.
* TheFool: Compared to the rest of the cast.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's an egotistical ass with a really high opinion of himself, but he protects and looks out for his friends no matter what.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney:
** It's implied that Rome's obsessed with money. When Brian tells him that his "pockets weren't empty", Roman then showed him the drug money and said "we ain't hungry no more either." He stole the money before he helped Brian apprehend Carter Verone.
** And in ''Fast Five'', he's very reluctant to participate in the mission, thinking it's personal and won't be any good for business. It isn't until Dom mentions that the vault's full of millions of dollars in cash that Rome's willing to change his mind.
** Averted in ''6'' when he drops everything as soon as he hears the others need help. Of course after he hears what the group is needed for, he asks Brian "We getting paid for this right?"
* MotorMouth: Compared to the much quieter Brian, Roman never seems to shut up.
%%* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Brian's blue.
%%* ScaryBlackMan
%%* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Attempts to do this in 6, of course, it doesn't happen.
%%* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: See CoolPlane entry.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With all members of the Team, but mostly with Brian, Tej and Han.

!Tejuan "Tej" Parker (Ludacris)

* AscendedExtra: He's introduced in the second movie, mainly as a friend to Brain and a race coordinator but nothing more then that making him mostly a minor character. So it was a surprise he was picked for the team in the fifth movie where he was given more of a character.
%%* BlackAndNerdy
* CareerEndingInjury: He says that his permanently injured leg is the reason he can't race anymore, though he does get into more conventional chases in ''6''.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: And not in a good way. He's shown to be unable to even drive a remote control toy car without getting into an accident.
* GadgeteerGenius: Tej is very good with technology, identifying and knowing how to open a very large, high-tech safe from the police department in Rio.
* MrFixit: He's given up racing for the most part and instead prefers to work on cars.
* TheReliableOne: He's an extremely reliable mechanic and friend to Brian, even offering him a place to stay and full access to his garages and cars during an FBI sting. His help allows Brian and Roman to successfully complete their undercover assignment against Miami druglord Carter Verone.
* TookALevelInBadass: Goes from just being a coordinator and not being able to drive without crashing to being able to keep pace with the others in ''6''.

!Han Lue (Sung Kang)

* BadassDriver: Arguably the best driver in the third film.
* BattleCouple: With Gisele.
* BigNo: Han lets one out in ''Furious 6'' when [[spoiler: Gisele [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices herself]] in the climax.]]
* CanonImmigrant: Han previously came from the Asian-American crime-drama ''Film/BetterLuckTomorrow'', which was directed by Justin Lin, the director of all the films from ''Tokyo Drift'' to ''Furious 6''.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: When you take the events of ''Film/BetterLuckTomorrow'' into consideration.
* DoomedByCanon: Han is introduced in the third movie, and then killed off towards the end. Since the fourth and fifth movies take place before that, they were both able to feature Han and show what he was up to before he went to Tokyo. Han mentions going to Tokyo in both films, and it appears he finally does after the sixth film.[[spoiler:...which doesn't bode too well for Gisele, either. She too gets killed off in ''6.'']]
%%* HeartbrokenBadass
* TheObiWan: To Sean.
* OralFixation: Due to being an ex-smoker. Doubles as a RunningGag, as he was regularly seen munching on snacks in ''Tokyo Drift'', then in his scene with Dom in ''4'', and "later" on in ''5''. Gisele correctly deduces that he was a smoker due to his constant need to keep his hands busy, or in her words, "A two pack a day man for sure. Unfiltered."
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler: His death in ''Tokyo Drift'' was no accident. [[TheStinger The mid-credits stinger]] in ''6'' reveals that the Mercedes Benz that crashed his car did it on purpose, and was driven by [[BiggerBad Owen Shaw's brother Ian]] [[AvengingTheVillain in retribution for his brother's death.]]]]
* StealingFromTheTill: [[spoiler: Revealed that he has been doing this from DK, and thus indirectly from Kamata, DK's Yakuza uncle - which leads to his fate. Or so we thought, given how TheStinger of ''6'' replays his death scene, [[CerebusRetcon only to reveal the true circumstances.]]]]
* {{Retcon}}: Initially his name was given as "Han Lue", but in Fast Five his name is displayed as the more Korean-sounding [[PunnyName Han]] [[Franchise/StarWars Seoul-Oh]]. Of course, considering his character, either name could be aliases. Another explanation is that it's the director's way of integrating ''Better Luck Tomorrow's'' Han into the ''Fast & the Furious'' universe, since Sung Kang's similarly named characters were given no indication to be the same person before Fast Five.
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler: With Gisele, as we discover in ''6''.]]
* UnstoppableRage: Flies into this after [[spoiler: Gisele's HeroicSacrifice]].

!Gisele Harabo (Gal Gadot)

%%* ActionGirl
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: distant, seemingly unfeeling brunette.
* {{Badass}}: Can handle herself behind the wheel and in a shootout.
* BadassIsraeli: She used to work for the Mossad.
* BattleCouple: With Han
* DarkActionGirl: before HeelFaceTurn
* DoomedByCanon: [[spoiler:Is this due to her not appearing alongside Han in Drift.]]
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:She successfully shoots the bad guy while falling to her death.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Pulls one in the fourth film after Dom saves her life.
* HellBentForLeather: mainly in her DarkActionGirl days.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Sacrifices herself to save Han from a villain in the sixth movie.]]
* TheLostLenore: [[spoiler: For Han. He quit putting any effort into building a relationship after her death.]]
* TheMourningAfter: In retrospect, [[spoiler:this explains why Han only looks for superficial relationships when he's in Tokyo]].
* ProudBeauty: she uses her looks as another weapon. Makes sense seeing how she's portrayed by a former Miss Israel.
* She'sGotLegs
* StatuesqueStunner
* WomanInBlack: Mostly. Toned down after her HeelFaceTurn.

!Agent Lucas "Luke" Hobbs (Wrestling/DwayneJohnson)

An elite DSS federal agent who is assigned to track down Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Connor.

* AFatherToHisMen: He's rough around the edges but he does care for the people who work under him. So much so that he [[spoiler: personally kills the BigBad in the fifth movie stating it was for his team that got wiped out in an ambush.]]
* {{Badass}}: He's played by The Rock, so this comes naturally.
%%* BadassBaritone
%%* BadassBeard
%%* BaldOfAwesome
%%* {{Determinator}}
* [[spoiler:EnemyMine: With Dom at the end of Fast Five due to the BigBad wiping out his team.]]
* [[FireForgedFriends Fire-Forged]] BashBrothers: With [[spoiler: Dom]] at the end of ''6''. Fighting each other/side by side has literally knocked a brotherly respect and admiration into each other.
* HeroAntagonist: Throughout ''Fast Five''.
* LargeHam: Again, he's played by The Rock, so it's to be expected.
* MadeOfIron: He ''repeatedly'' makes fifty-foot leaps out of ''speeding vehicles'' without taking a single scratch in ''Furious 6'', whereas similar falls from ''far'' shorter distances easily killed [[spoiler: Shaw and Gisele]]. To be fair, though, both those characters hit solid pavement. Hobbs landed on vehicles that were matching speed.
* [[spoiler:MercyLead: Gives 24 hours to Dom at the end of Fast Five as thanks for helping him avenge his team.]]
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: [[spoiler:Turns on his handlers when Mia is taken hostage by Shaw. Probably helped that one of his inside team was working for Shaw and given how he really values his men...]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: As the only team member who isn't a career criminal [[spoiler:or TheMole]], Hobbs takes this role in ''6'' [[spoiler:and during his EnemyMine in ''5'']].
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Not surprising, considering the actor. His ''Fast Five'' fight with Dom features several wrestling style slams, and features him doing the kip-up he often did during his WWE days. ''6'' takes it UpToEleven though, with him and Dom actually defeating Klaus by performing the Doomsday Device tag team maneuver.

!Sean Boswell (Lucas Black)

The main protagonist of ''Tokyo Drift'' and is confirmed to return in ''Fast & Furious 7''

* TheCharmer: He seems to have a way with the ladies. Sort of.
* BadassDriver: Almost inverted as he crashes cars in the early part of the film and can't drift to save his life until later. But he learns quick.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: For the first half of the movie.
* MilitaryBrat: His father appears to be stationed in Japan as part of the US Navy.
%%* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent



[[folder: Antagonists]]

! Johnny Tran (Rick Yune)
The somewhat Big Bad of the first movie

* ColdBloodedTorture: Tortures a mechanic when he doesn't have the right parts for a car by nearly making him swallow motor oil.
* EvilIsPetty: He and Dom have a deal to stay on each other respective sides of town. Brian accidentally drives into it while trying to get away from the cops after the street race. At first he seems reasonable enough and leaves without incident. Then a moment later two of his goons come back and shoot up the car. Forcing them to walk.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: One of the reasons he has bad blood with Dom, who slept with his sister.
* TheRival: Of the Race Wars to Dom.

! Carter Verone (Cole Hauser)

A drug lord and main antagonist of ''2 Fast 2 Furious''

* AffablyEvil: He's nothing but polite to Brian and Roman, and to some extent, Monica Fuentes. Though he tends to slide to FauxAffablyEvil during the ColdBloodedTorture scene, and at the end of the movie.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Subjects a DirtyCop on his payroll to this by putting a rat on his stomach, then a tin pail over it and heating it with a blowtorch. According to him, when a rat is trapped and frenzied enough it'll chew through its surroundings to get out. Ouch.
* FlatCharacter: He's not on screen much and we don't really know much about him beyond being a AffablyEvil drug smuggler.
* GenreSavvy: He had only told one other about the airport, his assistant Monica. So he changes his plan to use a getaway boat. When the cops indeed show up at the airport, it confirms his suspicions of her being a undercover cop.
* GracefulLoser: He accepts being caught quite well.
%%* SmugSnake
%%* TheStoic
* WeWillMeetAgain: What he claims as he's being hauled off but we haven't seen him since.

! Takashi (Brian Tee)

Main antagonist of ''Tokyo Drift''.

* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Him DK]]: See his RedBaron below.
* {{Jerkass}}: Though compared the the rest of the big bads of the series, he's the least worst of them - compounded by the fact Takashi doesn't take [[spoiler: Han's death well despite the fact Han was skimming money from him.]]
* RedBaron: The ''Drift King''.
* {{Yakuza}}: His uncle is a local boss, giving Takashi ties to them.

! Fenix Calderon (Laz Alonzo)

Braga's lead henchman and enforcer.

* BoomHeadshot: How he kills the drug runners after they're finished doing the job.
* TheDragon: To Braga.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler: Supposedly to Letty, subverted since he didn't quite finish the job.]]
* NearVillainVictory: He manages to catch up to Brian's car and overturn it, allowing him to recover Braga. Just as he's about to finish him off, Dom comes busting out of the tunnels [[spoiler: and guns straight for him. Fenix tries to shoot him but Brian grabs his leg, distracting him long enough for Dom to crush him against Brian's totaled car.]]
* SmugSnake: Taunts Dom about killing Letty, and instead of killing Brian outright at the end, kicks him around a few times before pointing his gun at him.

! Arturo Braga (John Ortiz)

The head of the drug running operation, [[spoiler: later revealed to have been working under Owen.]]

* NonActionBigBad: Good at planning and scheming, not so much on the action side.
* SmugSnake: In the climax in the fourth movie, he constantly keeps mocking Brian as Dom and he are trying to outrun Braga's men, so much so Brian finally gets fed up and punches him to shut him up. And again In the sixth movie, since he has muscle by his side, he thinks he can take Brian while he's in prison. Brian easily handles them and get the information needed out of him.

! Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida)

Main threat of ''Fast Five''

%%* AffablyEvil
%%* BigBad: Of ''5''.
* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler: How Hobbs kills him in revenge for the men lost in the ambush by Hernan's men]]
* TheCartel: Drug lord, not surprising considering the movie is set in Rio.
%%* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* DirtyCop: Not Reyes himself, but it appears he has most of the Rio police force on his payroll.
* YouHaveFailedMe: When he hears that Dom's team raided one of his hideouts, he kills the man who reported it to him via a vase.

! Zizi (Michael Irby)

Hernan's right hand man.

%%* TheDragon
* MadeOfIron: Survived a car crash and was about to kill Dom [[spoiler: until Brian shoots him first.]]

! Owen Shaw (Luke Evans)
An ex-SAS soldier who is the BigBad of ''Furious 6''.

* AxCrazy: Took blood-chilling pleasure in crushing dozens of innocent civilians under his tank in his rampage across the Spanish freeway; made doubly disturbing by the fact that it wasn't even a necessary maneuver to flee from Dom's crew.
* {{Badass}}: Comes naturally with being an ex-Special Air Service soldier.
* BadBoss: Sees his crew in terms of interchangeable parts.
%%* BigBad: Of ''6''.
* TheChessmaster: Always one step ahead of everyone.
%%* DisneyVillainDeath
%%* EvilBrit
* EvilCounterpart: To Dom.
* {{Jerkass}}: And that's the ''nicest'' way to describe him.
%%* KnightOfCerebus
* LackOfEmpathy: Cares only for himself and states to Dom that his family is his weakness since he thinks that makes Dom predictable and easy to handle. [[spoiler: Oh how wrong he was.]]
* ManBehindTheMan: Revealed to be the one behind Arturo Braga, the drug lord from ''4'' [[spoiler: which explains how Letty ended up in his employ]].
* SmugSnake: He's certainly not lacking in the confidence department. Though at least he can back it up.
* TemptingFate: He manages to pull off a gambit near the end of the film that got him released after he was caught. But then he has to state that Dom's team "were never part of the game". [[spoiler: Not a few minutes after he says this, said team come bearing down on him as he's trying to make his getaway. Resulting in ''his'' team being dismantled in the ensuing fight and he himself getting ejected out of a car and out the back end of a plane onto a speeding runway.]]
* TheSociopath: Has every hallmark of one. [[LackOfEmpathy People who aren't useful to him aren't even human, and only interesting resources at best if they are somehow useful]]. He emotionlessly admits an [[BadBoss utter lack of respect, much less sadness for comrades who fall in battle]], as they're clearly too incompetent to be useful; and that's if you're loyal to him. Most disturbing of all, he [[AxCrazy takes a practically boyish glee in running over and crushing countless innocent civilians when in command of a tank.]] Shaw's perhaps ''the'' single most evil character in the franchise so far.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: You know even if you do have a backup plan to get the MacGuffin, it's probably not wise to underestimate people who ''can stop a tank'' or [[spoiler: nearly go flying off a bridge to save a love one you yourself nearly tried to kill.]] And especially [[spoiler: kidnapping and threatening the wife and sister of two of your enemies' leaders]]. Note that he specifically chided one of his men for deriding them as common criminals. Someone needs to listen to their own advice.
* VillainousValor: He doesn't respect Dom's love of family. He does, however, respect the fact that Dom has a code by which he lives, which is why he offers Dom a chance to leave no strings attached. Of course, he's also seems not to realize that Dom's code is exactly why he ''won't'' leave under any circumstance.

! Jah (Joe Taslim)
Shaw's team member, a martial artist.

* ArrogantKungFuGuy
* AxCrazy: He beats down anyone trying to block his way, even if it's cops.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When facing multiple foes, he uses smart moves like stacking his opponents or pushing them against each other to hinder them.
* LeParkour: Uses some to run through the Waterloo station.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: A relatively small guy, he can beat both Roman and Han with ease.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Finishes Roman and Han with a [[Wrestling/MikeBucci Super Nova]]-style dropkick/elbow drop combo.

! Klaus (Kim Kold)
The huge bruiser of Shaw's team.

* TheBrute
* DumbMuscle: Even for a guy who probably can break necks with three fingers, he resolves mostly to little convoluted tactics like throwing and punching people around. Not that it isn't effective, however.
* GiantMook: So much it takes two heroes to (literally) take him down.
* GutturalGrowler
* LightningBruiser: Very fast aside big and strong.
* TheQuietOne: Aside from bestial roaring.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Gives Hobbs a spinebuster against a car's roof.

!Ian Shaw [[spoiler: (Creator/JasonStatham)]]

* AvengingTheVillain: [[spoiler: His main goal is to avenge the death of his brother, Owen.]]
* BadassBoast
