* MostAnnoyingSound: That ''voice''. He's where the New York squawk comes to die.

Added DiffLines:

* TheQueenpin: She's the head of a major drug dealing operation.


* AmbiguouslyGay: There's a ''lot'' of subtext implying that he's in love with Ezekiel. Several characters also directly suggest this at multiple points.

* AmbiguouslyGay: There's a ''lot'' of subtext implying that he's in love with Ezekiel. Several characters also directly suggest this at multiple points. His shockingly supportive and empathetic reaction to the InternalReveal about Dizzee and Thor's relationship also more generally implies that he's not straight:
-->'''Shao:''' Dizz. You know there's a reason I go by Shaolin Fantastic, right?\\
'''Dizzee:''' Because you're a superhero?\\
'''Shao:''' Because people don't need to know everything about me. Don't worry. I got you, my alien brother.



* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]

to:

* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]DrivenToSuicide: Shoots himself in the church after learning that Francisco is Mylene's real father.



* SingleTargetSexuality: He has carried a torch for Lydia since some time in the early 60s.

to:

* SingleTargetSexuality: He has carried a torch for Lydia ever since some time in the early 60s.they met.



* AnythingThatMoves: Jackie's sexuality is hard to pin down: he raped Leslie Lesgold when she was his assistant, can be seen feeling up and flirting with one of the Music/VillagePeople in one episode, and his hotel room in the final episode is filled with drag queens and gender-variant people. The best guess seems to be this trope.



* SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll: A walking advertisement for how horrificly that trope plays out in reality. He's a thief, an addict, and a rapist...and a rape victim.

--> I go out. I have dates. But I go to bed alone. I always have. Since 1960.

to:

--> The girls in the club. I go out. I like to have dates. a nice girl on my arm, I like to have a dance every now and then, that's true. But I go to bed alone. I always have. Since 1960.
sleep alone, Lydia, every night since 1960. Make no mistake.


* InformedAttractiveness: Zeke, Jackie, Francisco, and to a lesser (and creepier) extent, Cadillac all talk at length about Mylene's looks. Zeke even points her out as "the beautiful one" to Shao. It's not that she's not beautiful (she is), but that she's not above and beyond her also-gorgeous friends.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassBoast: From the Unity show in part 2:
--> ''Michelangelo ain't got shit on me''


* DrivenToSuicide

to:

* DrivenToSuicide[[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Cadillac uses the insult "faggot" quite a bit, although this being 1977, it was only barely politically incorrect at the time.

Added DiffLines:

* SawStarWarsTwentySevenTimes: Fifty-seven, actually, as of part two. (Especially impressive, as [=VHS=] and [=DVD=] weren't around then, which meant he had to have seen it 57 times ''during the theatrical run''.)
