Elementary School ShooterEdit
This man started a shooting randomly at a neighborhood elementary school and possibly killed some students and staff (it is shown that he did kill one police officer). He was armed with a rifle and barricaded one window with metal in his home to prevent the police from shooting him below. Martin Riggs responded to the call and challenged the sniper, much to the officers restraining him. The sniper fired three rounds, all of which missed Riggs. When he reloaded, he heard Riggs yell that he was still there. The sniper fired one more round before Riggs shot him multiple times with his pistol and killed him. He is only in the director's cut version of the film.
- His portrayer is unknown.
Elementary School ChildrenEdit
The children, all boys and girls, were hiding behind and below a concrete wall to avoid being hit by the sniper's rifle. One nine-year-old kid, who a police officer managed to carry out alive, was hit by the sniper and was crying in pain when his mother or teacher showed up and brought him out of there as fast as possible. After Martin Riggs took out the shooter, the kids were safely reunited with their families. They only appear in the director's cut version of the film.

Drug Dealer 1 was selling cocaine to Martin Riggs, when actually Riggs was there to arrest him and his buddies. He was the one that talked the most to Riggs and offered to sell him all his drugs for $100 with a free Christmas tree. In a sneaky way, Riggs pulled out his money and counted in 20s, 10s, then 5s and 1s, which pushed the dealer into offering him $100,000 instead of the original-asked price. Riggs then revealed his true reasons for being there and showed the dealer his badge. The dealer didn't believe him and told him his badge is not real, and he is not real. They begin calling him crazy and Riggs plays around with them before bringing out his gun. Then out of the Christmas trees, a shooter fatally shot Drug Dealer 1 to death, signaling the arrest of the others.
- Drug Dealer 1 is portrayed by Jimmie F. Skaggs.
Drug Dealer 2 was with the others selling drugs to Riggs. He stood behind Drug Dealers 1 and 3. He mostly watches the action as Riggs tries out each sampling of cocaine. When Riggs revealed his true reasons for being with the men, a shooter appears and takes out Drug Dealer 1. After shooting the shooter, Riggs shoots and disarms Drug Dealer 2, rendering him injured.
- Drug Dealer 2 is portrayed by Jason Ronard.
Drug Dealer 3 was with the others selling drugs to Riggs. He stood right next to Drug Dealer 1. When Drug Dealer 1 offers Riggs $100 for all the drugs, Drug Dealer 3 tells him "it's a fair price." When Riggs' cover is intentionally blown, he got flicked in the head and escapes the gunfire from the shooter hiding behind the truck with Christmas trees. The dealer evades Riggs and just as the police arrive, holds him at gunpoint. Riggs tells the officers to shoot the suspect but it only gets worse. He yells "shut up" every time Riggs speaks, but having had enough, headbutts the suspect and takes his gun to finish him for himself. The officers proceed to arrest him and read him his rights before Riggs is able to kill him.
- Drug Dealer 3 is portrayed by Blackie Dammett.
Christmas Tree ShooterEdit

Pool Pimp SuspectEdit
This pimp was under arrest for association with Amanda Hunsaker's murder and he was with two young ladies at his house. When Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh arrived, he pulled out his shotgun and attempted to kill them. Murtaugh shot back and injured the suspect in the leg. He told him to show his hands, which he refused. Just as Riggs showed up, the man quickly pulled out a handgun and almost shot Murtaugh at close range, but Riggs whacked the gun out of the way and shot him a few times as he fell into the pool. After having had a talk with Murtaugh earlier about killing suspects, Riggs jumps in the pool and the former joins him to save the man before he drowns to death. They were too late.

The armored criminal committed a shooting one rainy night in downtown Los Angeles. All equipped with bulletproof material, a high supply of ammo, a submachine gun, and a flamethrower, he was damaging city property when Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh arrived. As they attempted to slowly approach him, he turned and started shooting at the duo. The cops fired back but their firepower was no match for the criminal's armor. Even as more cops arrived, the armored criminal continued his shooting in the city and even set an approaching police car on fire. Finally, Riggs came up with a plan for Murtaugh to distract the criminal while he shot one of his gas valves from behind. This caused him to fly away and directly into a 76 gas station, colliding with several fuel chemicals (including a semitrailer) and creating an explosion, taking the armored criminal with it.
