YMMV: Vince Flynn

  • Acceptable Targets: Politicians (especially liberal ones) and terrorists.
  • Memetic Badass: Mitch becomes one to the counterterrorism industry at large and to people otherwise 'in the know' after he is outed as an assassin in Executive Power.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Mitch, in his Chessmaster mode.
    • David during Executive Power. By manipulating Mossad and the leaders of several terrorist groups, and with a few key assassinations, he is able to turn world and American opinion against Israel and nearly gain recognition for a Palestinian state.
  • Tear Jerker: The extremly painful and torturous demise of Mike Nash's friend in executive order, the demise of Ann Rapp, Mitch's Stan Hurley getting a diagnosis of 6 months to live in The Last Man and now Vince Flynn himself who tragically passed away on 20/6/13.
  • Jerkass: Ben Friedman, director of Mossad. Has a borderline Sociopathic disregard for anything in his way and even crosses the Moral Event Horizon when he has two Apache Helicopter gunships destroy a city block with innocent civilians
  • Woobie : Mitch during his Heroic BSOD, and David due to his traumatized past, Claudia also counts when she realises her Husband failed to make sure Ann Rapp would not be killed in his assassination attempt
