    Janet "Greenback Jane" Bhai 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Greenback_Jane_1032.jpg
Voiced by: Miki Nagasawa (JP), Kelly Sheridan (EN)

An Indian counterfeiter whose goal is to create perfect counterfeit money. After members of the Floridian cartel that hired her lose patience with her due to continued schedule slips and shoot one of her co-workers to death before giving her a 48-hours deadline to finish her job, she flees from the members of the cartel and eventually seeks sanctuary with the Church of Violence, unleashing a mad pursuit.


  • Boobs of Steel: Averted rather interestingly for a series that typically plays this straight. Has the biggest bust of the prominent female characters at a whopping K, yet is the weakest female in the cast. Or, more accurately, one of the only weak females in the cast.
  • Butt-Monkey: Her first time in Roanapur sucked incredibly hard. Her colleage gets shot and she has to run from a cartel. Jane goes to the Ripoff Church for sanctuary, and gets ripped off by Eda. Eda then betrays her to many contract killers to get more money. Jane gets a little rest in a bad motel, then gets chased by a bunch of madmen the rest of the night. And Eda kept extorting more and more cash from the unfortunate sod, too.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: She's a blond Indian woman.
  • Geeky Turn-On: She once says watching Benny break code turns her on.
  • Hair Decorations: Her headband.
  • Harmless Villain: She is so ineffectual in her villainy that it's hard to take her seriously. Then the tenth book came out, and changed that magnificently. Though she gets screwed over in the end.
  • Insufferable Genius: Listening to her detailed explanation on how she prints money is PAINFUL. She also takes no small amount of glee for proving Revy and Eda don't know how to recognize counterfeit cash.
  • Master Forger: Allegedly the best counterfeiter in the business. The "Greenback Jane" arc has her being hunted down through Roanapur by a Carnival of Killers. Turns out that said carnival was hired by the same branch of The Mafia that hired her to produce counterfeit cash: her perfectionism cost them so much time and money that the Mafia deemed her project Awesome, but Impractical and decided to cut their losses and just kill her.
  • Meganekko: She wears glasses and is very smart in certain areas. She's also yappy, bitchy, and full of herself, so she doesn't really fit all the criteria.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Unintentionally so in her first arc. As of her reappearance, she's embraced this wholeheartedly, from dress to manner.
  • My Girl Is a Slut: Not at first, but after having sex once with Benny in her intro arc, she returns to Roanapur as a "grade-A fuck freak" (As Revy puts it) who's implied to regularly sleep around. She's also ditched the modest work shirt and skirt for this getup. Benny doesn't seem to care though, or at the very least is too flustered by her hyper sexual behavior to say anything.
  • Naïve Newcomer: Starts like that, but Character Development takes care of that. Though she didn't think about the possible consequences about letting her colleague, who had probably never been to Thailand, come from Bangkok to Roanapur BY HERSELF. Later on it's revealed that she planned from the beginning to betray that colleague anyway, it means she probably just didn't care.
  • Out-Gambitted: In the end, Feng gets the last laugh in their rivalry, as she manages to deposit a large sum of ill-begotten money on Janet's bank account and then tipping off the Scotland Yard. Feng is aware that Janet is probably smart enough to evade arrest, but predicts that Janet will be forced to keep a very low profile for some time as the heat wears off and definitely won't be too happy about it; she is entirely right by the way, especially since the places she's suggested to lay low don't have internet or electricity.
  • Pair the Smart Ones: With Benny, Lagoon's hacker-man. She once said watching him work turned her on.
  • Panty Shot: Keeps being subjected to her flowing skirt going up and giving the viewer a nice view of her legs and panties.
  • Really Gets Around: After visiting Roanapur for the first time. By the time she returns, it's implied she's gotten a bit out of control. You know it's bad when even Rock dismissively calls her a "harlot". Also revealed an interest in getting herself gangbanged. And she planned on roping Rock into it. Revy was pissed about it.
  • She's Got Legs: And boy did she have to use them while running from the freaks of Roanapur.
  • Technobabble: Over the finer details of counterfeit money. It's a long rant and Revy is not amused.
  • Threat Backfire: When Revy threatens to screw Jane so hard that no-one but Revy will be able to sexually satisfy her ever again, Jane has a look on her face like she was either in awe of the boast, or thinking about making Revy go through with her threat.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: After she showed up in Roanapur once again, especially when she frames Li for hacking into the PLA.
  • Underboobs: After her first arc, she's taken to wearing a slim tube-top and just plain skimpier clothes in general.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Jane's actions in framing Li sets off the events of the Wired Red Wild Card arc.

    Shane Caxton 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shane_black_lagoon.jpg
Voiced by: Shinji Ogawa (JP), Ron Halder (EN)

An US Army Major, and commander of the ISA black-ops unit "Gray Fox" under orders of the NSA - Caxton, like Dutch (supposedly...) is a Vietnam War veteran who has seen the ugly face of both sides, and as a result developed his own moral code and sense of honor, a trait that earns him the absolute respect and obedience of his men.

Due to the accidental death of Diego Lovelace during a political assassination for which his unit was responsible for, he unwittingly made an enemy out of Roberta - who effectively declared war on him and the entire NSA. With his next assignment being the capture of Shue Yan, an opium harvester located in the Golden Triangle, Caxton and his men were temporarily stationed in Roanapur to await further orders - and giving Roberta a nice scent. This put all of Roanapur on edge; the Triads, Hotel Moscow, and especially the Cartel given their previous history with her. The CIA too gets involved, due to having a nice fat stake in the opium trade - effectively making the whole ordeal a giant pissing match between the two organizations. As Caxton puts it, he just walked into a "gigantic clusterfuck."


  • Artistic License – Military: In a flashback, Caxton is shown to be a lieutenant during The Vietnam War. But during the events of the show (over two decades later) he only holds the rank of major. A real-world American military officer would hold the rank of at least a colonel (if not higher) after so many years of service.
  • Achilles' Heel: His is the fact that he's a Friend to All Children. While it made him a badass during Nam, nowadays it just serves to paint a target on his back - much to the dismay of his men.
  • Affably Evil: To the point where he can hardly qualify as "evil" at all. He's one of the only few genuinely decent people in the entire series.
  • The Atoner: The moment he realizes that he's unwittingly responsible for destroying Garcia's family and driving Roberta insane, he aims to do right by it - to the point where he even hands Garcia a gun to shoot him if it'll satisfy him.
  • Batman Gambit: Together with Rock and Garcia, he orchestrated temporarily faking his death to help Roberta snap back to reality AND capture Shue Yan.
  • Eagleland: An extremely rare positive portrayal of this trope; in Black Lagoon of all places. Shane embodies all of the positive attributes an ideal American soldier should have: Honorable, brave, righteous, and above all just decent while simultaneously being a top-tier leader adored by his men.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: It cost him practically all of his men, but in the end he accomplished his mission, gave Garcia closure and helped save Roberta. He's last seen on the boat at the end of El Baile de la Muerte arc - chapter 76. In the OVA, he's last seen standing together with son, and wife of the Japanese engineer at the Lovelace mansion.
  • Foil: Balalaika's. They both went out of their way to save a child and were put in less than desirable situations as a result: Shane now operates assassinations and other wet-work assignments for the NSA, and Balalaika was discharged (the Soviet Union collapsed almost immediately afterwards anyway). The only difference is, Shane held onto his ideals and still had a place to call home, even if it's not what it used to be. Balalaika on the other hand had nothing but her men - the only place she could remotely call a home was the Russian mafia - remnants of the KGB and GRU.
  • Friend to All Children: Single-handedly defended a little girl during the Vietnam War from his own men, and current-day went out of his way to keep Garcia safe.
  • Heel–Face Turn: It can be assumed that he quit working for the United States as he's seen with Roberta and Garcia at the end.
  • Hero Antagonist: He and his equally noble and heroic Gray Fox unit act as this towards Roberta and the denizens of Roanapur before forming an Enemy Mine with Balalaika and the Lagoon Company to survive Roberta's rampage.
  • Honor Before Reason: Another one of his flaws. During Nam, he went up against his entire unit to protect a little Vietnamese girl from getting raped (his position on the line of dead Vietnamese shown in a ditch is less clear). He also nearly got shot by Garcia due to this.
  • Nice Guy: One of the only few genuinely good people in this fucked up world.
  • Noble Demon: His speciality is assassinations and other wet-wort, yet he still tries to put the safety of civilians above all else. If casualties can't be helped, then they're on him.
  • One-Man Army: See that story up there, about how he got between his unit and a little girl they wanted to rape in 'Nam? It comes to a firefight between them, and, well, Shane appears in the story afterwards. The rest of his unit do not.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He did the black op bombing in Caracas, but he believed that his superiors were trying their best to make South America a safe place. Then he realized the devastating impact it made on the lives of Garcia and Roberta when he took Garcia's father away.
  • Unfriendly Fire: A rare example of this trope where it's the commanding officer who's the heroic character. His unit in 'Nam found a little girl they wanted to rape. Caxton did not react positively to this.
  • The Vietnam Vet: Fought in the Vietnam War. He was most likely leading a Green Beret team based on the fact that his men wore Tiger stripes.
  • Worthy Opponent: He has earned Balalaika's respect as a commander and soldier worth killing - on the battlefield. In a shithole like Roanapur, the respect she has for him opts her to send the Desantniki to cover his escape. The manga, and the anime are different in this case. In the manga Balalaika was indecisive about the Grey Fox, and she wished to attack them. Only after Mr. Chang persuasion she decided to send the Desantiki to cover their escape.

Voiced by: Nobuaki Fukuda (JP), Brian Drummond (EN)

Caxton's second in command in the Grey Fox unit.


  • Badass Mustache: A powerful soldier with a distinctive mustache. It makes him stand out amongst the other Grey Fox soldiers.
  • Hero Antagonist: Towards Roberta and the denizens of Roanapur before forming an Enemy Mine with Balalaika and the Lagoon Company to survive Roberta's rampage.
  • Number Two: Shane's second in command, he defers orders down to the men when Shane is busy.

    Horner 
Voiced by: Motoi Koyanagi (JP), Jason Simpson (EN)

A Sergeant Major in the Grey Fox unit.


  • Big Damn Heroes: When Roberta nearly shoots Garcia (thinking he's a hallucination), Horner broke rank to save him and push her back.
  • Friend to All Children: Disobeyed orders to save Garcia. His comrades speculate that he did it because Horner has kids back home. When Garcia pulls a pistol on Shane, Horner tackles and disarms him whereas some of the other foxes pulled their guns.
  • Hero Antagonist: Towards Roberta and the denizens of Roanapur before forming an Enemy Mine with Balalaika and the Lagoon Company to survive Roberta's rampage.
  • Mauve Shirt: One of the foxes with a bit more characterization than the others on account of him saving Garcia.
  • Taking the Bullet: When Roberta dropped down on top of the unit spraying gunfire, Horner tackled Garcia to shield him. After wards he reveals that he was hit and has to limp alongside the others.

    Sanchez 
Voiced by: Nobuaki Kanemitsu(JP), Michael Adamthwaite (EN)

The Grey Fox Unit's sharpshooter.


  • Friendly Sniper: An outgoing friendly man and the team sniper. Unlike a Cold Sniper Sanchez works with a spotter to watch his back.
  • Hero Antagonist: Towards Roberta and the denizens of Roanapur before forming an Enemy Mine with Balalaika and the Lagoon Company to survive Roberta's rampage.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: When Roberta goes around blasting metal bars at the soldiers, he manages to take the impact in his rifle and survive. She throws her musket and impales him on the bayonet.
  • Mauve Shirt: One of the Grey Fox members to get a decent amount of character and dialogue. He's the only significant casualty in the battle with Roberta in the OVA.

    Lotton the Wizard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aba7f0ac1e820e035d8764f0b3ee1bbd.png
Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (JP), Samuel Vincent (EN)

A handsome, long-coated adventurer introduced during the Greenback Jane arc, he is one of the few survivors of the band of mercenaries hunting for Jane. He now lives with the other two, Shenhua and Sawyer the Cleaner.


  • Ambiguous Disorder: Ambiguous doesn't even begin to cut it with Lotton... There is evidently something really loose (or missing) inside that brain. He's definitely got some kind of delusion of grandeur, coupled with an absolute inability to tell fantasy from reality indicating possibly schizophrenia. Or it could simply be severe cognitive deficiency... Shenhua remarks that he's "special", so it's perhaps best to leave it at that.
  • Anti-Villain: He's one of the nicest people in the show, and is only really antagonistic from the viewpoint of the protagonists (and even then, only in his first appearance).
  • Badass Long Coat: Invoked and subverted. He wears a stylish trenchcoat mostly for dramatic effect... yet he's still laughably ineffectual, despite his irritating good fortune.
  • Beauty = Goodness: Everyone up to Revy herself takes notice of how unusually handsome he is. Is also the Token Good Teammate everytime he appears.
  • Big Entrance: Has an obsession with announcing his appearance, striking a pose, and giving a speech. This is Played for Laughs.
  • Bishōnen: His excessive good looks lead Revy to first assume he's Shenhua's "man-whore".
  • Cool Gun: His twin Mauser C96s; the so-called "Broomhandle" Mauser which was used as the basis for Han Solo's blaster.
  • Cool Shades: He tries to look cool with these, but fails.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He might not be all that bright, but he has a Bulletproof Vest unlike the rest of the Carnival of Killers and metal armor for his groin, which helped save his balls when Roberta kicked them.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Moron? Oh, lord yes. Badass? Well, when you consider that he's survived repeated encounters with both Revy and Roberta...
  • Drink Order: Milk, since he Can't Hold His Liquor.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: "There's no way I can just ignore an injured girl and let her die."
  • The Fool: On the one hand, he seems to be a complete idiot, what with his obsession with being "cool" leading him to trying to deliberately invoke shonen style actions that just cause him to get shot at. On the other hand, he also manages to survive by having the common sense to do things like wear body armor, and even saves Sawyer and Shenhua from Roberta by intervening at the right time and allowing her to beat him up. And by being clearly Born Lucky enough to avoid death when anybody else would have been killed off long ago. Basically, he's Genre Savvy enough to be a merc in Roanapur and not be shot dead within three steps (which, given the nature of Roanapur, is an achievement in itself) but he's otherwise so stupid that he cannot be taken seriously as a real threat.
  • Guns Akimbo: With two Broomhandle Mausers, except he didn´t get to use them onscreen yet.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Sort of. He saves both Shenhua and Sawyer, but given the Crapsack World setting of this series, both seem pretty nice—they then became semi-loyal allies instead of killing him immediately thereafter. Yes, they'll kill anyone if the price is right, but if that's the worst thing about you in Roanapur, you can't be that bad, so he may have actually been on point with this one.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He attempts to be cool and stylish, but he is very clumsy and really no good at the whole bounty hunter thing. In his first confrontation with Revy, he has barely finished his introduction speech before she unceremoniously incapacitates him. He manages to be quite sympathetic by the fact that he is quite endearing in his ineptness and really is a nice guy when he is not attempting the Dare to Be Badass act.
  • In the Name of the Moon: Is very fond of pre-battle speeches. Black Lagoon being the kind of show that it is, it doesn't do him any good.
  • Joke Character: He deliberately acts like a shonen action hero in Roanapur. He never gets to do anything in battle because people shoot him down whilst he's posturing and/or monologuing.
  • Karmic Protection: One of the only genuinely nice characters of the show, one of the easiest to discard and yet is still alive and kicking.
  • Large Ham: Mostly thanks to his tendency to deliver In the Name of the Moon speeches at the drop of a hat.
  • The Load: For whatever reason, Revy recruits him along with Shenhua and Sawyer in tracking down Roberta during her rampage. All he really does is stand around trying to look cool, and when he finally does enter the fray he's immediately incapacitated.
  • Made of Iron: Played with. Even when he's shot, falling down from a building or being kicked in the balls (by Roberta of all people!), he just rises up again and continues on. Luckily, he's smart enough to wear a bulletproof vest and a metal codpiece, though he got kicked so hard that the codpiece dented, and still fell from a rooftop onto solid asphalt. In general he takes far more punishment than most people could handle.
  • Meaningful Name: The alternate translation of his name qualifies; his name is Rotton, pronounced "rotten", and he's an absolutely rotten gunslinger.
  • Nice Guy: Now that Rock no longer qualifies for this trope, he is the sole man of manners and morality in Roanapur. Shenhua mentions immediately upon meeting him that he would be more at home as a host in a brothel rather than as a bounty hunter.
  • The Quiet One: When he isn't giving a sweeping speech, all he does is silently stand around while drammatically propping up his sunglasses.
  • Token Good Teammate:
    • Compared to his fellow bounty hunters, who are either complete psychopaths at worst and a bunch of backstabbing cutthroats at best.
    • Also of the Power Trio he's formed with Shenhua and Sawyer. One's a gleefully violent assassin, the other is a macabre "cleaner" who hacks up living people and corpses alike with total aplomb. Then there's Lotton, who deliberately runs on idealistic action hero tropes.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Inverted. He's the whitest haired and nicest character in the series.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Judging by how disconnected from the harsh realities of life he is, it's going to take a lot more to break him out of his " idealistic action hero" mindset than it did to break Rock.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Lotton acts like he came from a more idealistic series. Even Rock has become more savvy to the way the world works than he has, but at least the guy who behaves like he's got Plot Armor is savvy enough to wear actual armor.

    Frederica Sawyer "the Cleaner" 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sawyer_7.jpg
Voiced by: Asami Yaguchi (JP), Saffron Henderson (EN)

A feared presence in the Roanapur underworld, who helps the various crime organizations dispose of corpses (and soon to be corpses) with her trusty chainsaw. Actually a rather pretty young goth girl.


  • Ambiguous Disorder: Fair chance she suffers from a combination of some form of depression and anxiety disorder, as within less than a minute, she has an anxiety attack, throws a childish tantrum then curls up and starts crying after she loses her ultravoice. Revy also comments that she might have some other emotional issues that could make her unpredictable.
  • Ax-Crazy: Sawyer loved chopping up people with her chainsaw so much that she became a professional cleaner so she could slice up all the unfortunate people that pissed off the different mafia groups in Roanapur.
  • Badass Adorable: She's capable of fighting people with her chainsaw, to the point she can deflect bullets with it, but at the same time, she's a surprisingly cute, even vulnerable-looking goth-girl.
  • The Butcher: Meat butchering is even her legitimate career, to hide her job as a body-cleaner, torturer-for-hire, and amateur bounty hunter.
  • Chainsaw Good: So good in fact that she can use her chainsaw to deflect bullets.
  • Cleanup Crew: Everybody brings their garbage to her, be it dead or still moving.
  • Creepy Monotone: She has one of these whenever she uses her artificial voice box to communicate.
  • Cute Bruiser: A cute goth girl, but quite capable of beating the hell out of anyone, and won't think twice about slaughtering her way through a melee with her chainsaw.
  • Cute Mute: Downplayed; while she is cute in a goth-punk sort of way and does appear to be missing her vocal cords, she can be quite mouthy when she has her electrolarynx device.
  • Dissonant Serenity: She's quite cheerful; at one point when she's explaining that the bad odor in a hotel room results from the ooze from rotted corpses she had to clean up there earlier she smiles happily while all around her, people are losing their lunch, and may in fact be giggling because the others are losing their lunch.
  • Earn Your Title: Sawyer "The Cleaner": she cleans up messes, specializing in body disposal, and the bodies being alive or dead doesn't matter to her.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: Her fellow mercenaries have this reaction during the Greenback Jane arc, as most of them have never seen her in person, and those who have, only saw her swathed in surgical dress which obscured her features.
  • Girl with Psycho Weapon: She's a cute-looking gothic woman whose weapon of choice is a chainsaw.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Given her violent profession, her slashed throat signifies the evil scars.
  • Goth: She dresses as a goth when not "on the job". She's basically the Lone Psycho Goth, although she's more lone, due to having her vocal cords cut, and psycho, because everyone in this series is, than because she is a goth. She has her Perky Goth moments, but even those are tempered by her usual deadpan expression.
  • Last-Name Basis: Everyone refers to her by her last name Sawyer; her full name is Frederica Sawyer.
  • Meaningful Name: Sawyer - Saw-er, one who saws. Not to mention the Shout-Out below.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She loves playing violent video games and discussing the clean-up jobs she does.
  • Odd Friendship: With the legendary dumbass Lotton. Following the Greenback Jane arc, the two are almost always seen together.
  • Only in It for the Money: Averted, She enjoys the money, but she does enjoy the work too.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: It appears that nobody knows her first name, only Sawyer the Cleaner. Revy also calls her by the nickname Goth Girl.
  • Parrying Bullets: Blocks bullets... with a chainsaw. She doesn't actually parry them, she turns the chainsaw sideways and uses it as a shield- she's small enough that it's effective.
  • Psycho for Hire: She really loves both her jobs; her job disposing of bodies after torturing that person, and her job as a bounty hunter.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Several characters react this way In-Universe when they discover that she's female, since most people deal with her when she's covered head to toe in scrubs that obscure her face.
  • Self-Harm: It's implied that she does this. In Chapter #41, scars can be seen on her wrist while she is climbing a ladder, and a few official artworks featuring her show a fairly large amount of scars on her wrists.
  • Shout-Out: Her name and weapon of choice are one to the family in the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre series.
  • Slashed Throat: She lost her voice to a throat injury, and the subsequent scar left a rather massive impression.
  • Vague Age: She looks young enough to be in her mid teens, though looking at her status and "profession", it's possible she's already in her 20's.
  • Villainous BSoD:
    • If she loses her ultravoice, she breaks out into a cold sweat, throws a tantrum, then curls up into a ball of pouty despair all within a minute. She later upgrades to a choker-mounted version to prevent such incidents.
    • She's later seen shaking in terror after the team confronts a crazed Roberta. Considering Roberta's state at the time it's understandable, since the woman broke Sawyer's chainsaw in half with her bare hands.
  • Villains Out Shopping: When she, Shenhua and Lotton appear in Roberta's Blood Trail, she and Lotton are happily playing a videogame together.

    Bao 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noname3_8973.jpg
Voiced by: Shiro Saito (JP), Alec Willows (EN)

Bao is the owner and bartender of the Yellow Flag Bar. His establishment is frequently filled with bullet holes, blown-up, and otherwise trashed, but he always survives by hiding behind his armored bar and firing a shotgun at any threats. Revy owes him for damages, but always manages to avoid paying. He also owns a brothel set up on the top floor of his bar and he is a former ARVN soldier who fought in The Vietnam War.


  • Bad-Guy Bar: The Yellow Flag, naturally. It seems to be the "main" bar of the city and is where all of the place's criminal factions can meet up at any given time. Balalaika even foots the bill when Roberta blows the place up, indicating that it may be a front for Hotel Moscow. What that means, regarding Bao himself, is anyone's guess.
  • Butt-Monkey: A mild example. He and his bar have to take a lot of shit throughout the series, and it is treated as a Running Gag, but it's rarely ever targeted at him personally. He just isn't on anyone's radar, and that explains why he's survived for so long.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He's had the bar fortified to stop up to 50 caliber and keeps a semi-automatic shotgun back there too.
  • Hero of Another Story: Bao's exploits in the Vietnam War.
  • Meaningful Name: Possibly for the bar; he's probably a former ARVN soldier and the flag of the Republic of Vietnam was mainly yellow, in contrast to the Communist red. Plus, his name rhymes with "bow", which tells you a lot about how high he ranks on the Roanapur food chain.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: A war veteran who routinely survives having his establishment torn to pieces by nearly every faction in Roanapur. In any other work of fiction, he'd probably be one of the most badass people around. Here, he's a very minor character who doesn't even rank on the food chain goes.
  • Retired Badass: He is a former ARVN soldier who fought in the Vietnam War.
  • Two Shots from Behind the Bar: He keeps a shotgun behind the bar handy for inevitable shootouts.
  • Will Talk for a Price: Averted. Information isn't something Bao's in the business of. Occasionally if he hears gossip he'll tell Revy for free but when Roberta begins asking questions about the local gangsters, Bao blows her off. When Rock tries bribing him into giving him information on the local Italian gang, Bao promptly rejects his attempt, and says that he will gladly tell him what he knows for free, because it is just more convenient for all parties.
    Bao: That won't work on me, idiot. I'm not a crook like the rest of them.
