- The way Tommy gets involved in the Blast Out: by "blowing [a dirty cop's] balls off".
- Oleg shooting Anzor in the shoulder, after hitting his Berserk Button by calling John Wayne a "faggot".
- Oleg pulling his gun on Lester, even if it did turn out to be empty.
- How Oleg gets out of the situation with the pedophiles.
- The way Teresa deals with them (calling the cops not to report the obvious, but instead a shooting, and then killing both of them in cold blood, telling the kids to go downstairs and wait for the cops, and leaving) also earns her serious badass points.
- Joey gets his extremely late into the movie:
- The first is when he basically survives a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on an ice ring, killing several people including the don he worked for even after he outs himself to be an undercover fed.
- The second is when he delivers an epic Shut Up, Hannibal! to Lester and mocks him for making a Shout-Out to Scarface (1983), before slashing his throat from ear to ear.
