* {{Narm}}: In the second episode, an ATF agent gets involved with the case because the bad guy from the opening was using a "next-gen weapon that can fire multiple rounds". That's all he said. What makes this line so stupid is that he basically said the reason the weapon's so dangerous is because it's a ''machine gun'', a weapon that's been around since the 19th-century.

* CompleteMonster: [[{{Sadist}} Gideon Lyon]] is a cold-blooded CIA agent turned [[PsychoForHire attack dog]] for cartel leader Tito Flores. Described as Flores's most brutal enforcer, Lyon pursues Flores's mistress Maria and her infant son into Los Angeles, killing an informant in the process. Cornering Martin Riggs, his partner Roger Murtaugh, DEA Agent Palmer, Maria, and her [[WouldHurtAChild baby]] in a motel, Lyon attempts to kill them all with a rocket before murdering two responding officers. Upon his arrest, Lyon is revealed to be linked to the death of Riggs's wife Miranda, and when interrogated by Riggs, Lyon boasts that once Flores commissioned the hit, he deliberately waited for Miranda to go into labor before ordering the car crash that killed her, just to hurt Riggs. Escaping, Lyon kidnaps Riggs and Murtaugh, [[ElectricTorture torturing Murtaugh with a defibrillator]] and bragging that after the crash, he personally suffocated the still-alive Miranda to death. A psychopath who simply enjoys hurting others, Gideon Lyon significantly [[KnightOfCerebus darkens the tone]] of this action-comedy series.

* CompleteMonster: [[{{Sadist}} Gideon Lyon]] is a cold-blooded CIA agent turned right-hand madman of cartel leader Tito Flores. Described as the most brutal of Flores's enforcers, Gideon is notable for his penchant for ColdBloodedTorture, a trait he demonstrates on a DEA informant that falls into his clutches while pursuing Flores's runaway mistress and infant child into Los Angeles, brutalizing the man and [[DeadGuyOnDisplay hanging his body for the world to see]]. His EstablishingCharacterMoment has him getting into a jovial conversation with LAPD Detective Martin Riggs before firing a rocket into a hotel room in an attempt to kill Riggs, his partner Roger Murtaugh, DEA agent Palmer, the aforementioned mistress and [[WouldHurtAChild her baby]], and then killing [[CopKiller two responding officers]]. Later arrested after a second attempt on the mistress's life, Gideon is revealed to have played a key role in the death of Riggs's wife Miranda, causing the distraught cop to free Gideon from prison to interrogate him personally. Gideon goes on to tell Riggs that he deliberately waited for the pregnant Miranda to go into labor and head to the hospital before ordering the car crash that killed her, for no reason other than [[ForTheEvulz to make Riggs suffer]]. Escaping, Gideon later abducts Riggs and Murtaugh to torture, attempting to stop Murtaugh's pacemaker with a [[ElectricTorture defibrillator]] before bragging to Riggs that after the crash, Miranda was still breathing, so he personally suffocated her to death. A sociopath who simply enjoys hurting others, physically and psychologically, Gideon Lyon stands out as an unrepentantly callous killer who [[KnightOfCerebus significantly darkens the tone]] of this action-comedy series.
