* ChestOfMedals: Gunny Highway is ''highly'' decorated, even if you don’t count his Medal of Honor. Upon meeting Highway for the first time, Ring is awestruck by his ribbon rack.



* DrillSergeantNasty: Gunny Highway.

to:

* DrillSergeantNasty: Gunny Highway.Highway uses this approach with the enlisted men of Recon Platoon. He simultaneously takes a much more subtle approach to mentor LT Ring.



* EmbarrassingNickname: One of Highway’s first orders of business is to apply some very derisive variations to the last names of the platoon’s cockier members. Fragetti, Quiñones, and Profile become ''Fag''etti, ''Cojones'', and Prophylactic.



* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: On the gunnery range, Profile tells Highway, "Gunny, my gun's jammed," turns around and sprays the line with bullets, narrowly missing Major Powers.

* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: On the gunnery rifle range, Profile tells Highway, "Gunny, my gun's weapon's jammed," turns around around, [[UsefulNotes/GunSafety sweeping Highway and the entire firing line with his muzzle without even taking his finger off the trigger]]. Highway reflexively reacts to the gross safety violation, grabs Profile’s rifle and yanks it upwards. Profile, whose booger hook is still on the bang switch, sprays the line with bullets, narrowly missing Major Powers.Powers. For once, [[JerkassHasAPoint Powers is absolutely right]] to punish Profile.

* EarAche: Gunny Highway's torment of Stitch begins with him grabbing Stitch's earring and ripping his earlobe with it.

* TooDumbToLive: Early in the movie, Stitch cons Highway into paying for his meal and strands him at a rest stop, forcing Highway to hitch a ride to the base. Highway is wearing his uniform so Stitch knows he is dealing with a Gunnery Sergeant and there is a good chance that they are going to the same Marine base. The base is fairly big but there is still a decent chance that they will meet again and a pissed off Gunnery Sergeant can make life hell for a private like Stitch. Stitch stealing from a senior Marine NCO is already a very poor life choice but he does so without first verifying where Highway is stationed and what unit he is serving in.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: The Recon platoon has pretty much abandoned all semblance of military discipline when Highway is assigned to lead them. They do not salute and openly disrespect a Gunnery Sergeant. In RealLife, there is no way a Marine platoon would be allowed to operate like that no matter how lax their previous sergeant was. The sergeant and the officers up to Major Powers would be court-martialed for dereliction of duty for allowing for things to get that bad.

* GroinAttack: Actually a major plot device when the last recon marine still in a contest takes down the last two of his team's opponents with one in each hand. He is then accused of cheating and the resolution of this argument is {{badass}}.
