Tropes used in Assault on Precinct 13 include:
  • Anti-Hero: Guess who?
  • Anti-Villain: Well, as far as Corrupt Cops can get. The cop leading the SWAT team aims to kill the Mafia don inside before he can testify to keep his fellow police officers' "honor" preserved. Taken further in a deleted scene, in which he Mercy Kills a very badly burnt SWAT officer after he promises to make sure his family will be taken care of and unaware of the nature of his death.
  • Corrupt Cop: The antagonists this time around, trying to take out Fishburne's character to ensure they don't get exposed.
  • Defiant to the End: Alex Sabian

Marcus Duvall: [Kneels in front of a kneeling Sabian] How many are inside?
Alex Sabian: [Thinking] Uh... 100. [There are actually 5].
Marcus Duvall: Answer the question.
Kahane: [shakes Sabian] Answer, bitch!
Alex Sabian: [stares at Duvall]
Marcus Duvall: You're a brave woman. [Stands up and shoots Sabian point blank in the head].

  • Hollywood Atheist: Type 1 for Laurence Fishburne.
  • The Mafia: Fishburne's character ran some sort of organization like this.
  • Motor City: The setting is changed from Los Angeles to Detroit.
  • New Year Has Come
  • Race Lift: The two protagonists' races this time around are switched, and one of the prisoners is Mexican.
  • Scary Black Man: Guys, it's Laurence Fishburne.
  • Snow Means Death: And a LOT of death.
  • Take That: Against the fans. Beck (John Leguizamo) was so popular that audiences were disappointed to see him killed off. The director took this as an advantage and shot a close up of Beck's body hit the snow with the bloody bullet wound through his forehead.
  • Vasquez Always Dies: Anna.
    • Debatable, Alex is more feminine than Iris. Alex dies while Iris lives.
