The Stan Twins’ choice of weapons says a lot about them and
their personalities. Stan’s choice weapon is the brass knuckles. He gets
insanely physical when he fights. Face to face, punches flying. Stan has also
used a baseball bat or other items to beat on his attackers. When we see him
fight the agents in NWHS, he uses his surroundings very effectively to put a
hurt on the agents. Timing the anti-gravity just right, he uses his chair and
momentum, and the other agent’s bodies to do his fighting. He is very effective
and physical presence when he fights.
Ford chooses weapons that he can hide behind, typically. His
array of guns. His knowledge. He tries beating his opponents by outthinking
them or outmaneuvering them, or with something he can use as a medium to fight
with. While he can throw a punch, and we’ve seen him do so, he is also very
evasive in the physical fights we’ve seen. With anyone besides Stan, he’s hid
behind a weapon of some sort to do his fighting.
But on the other hand, Stanley is much better at the long
con. He can lie and worm his way through people and be stealthy if he needs to
be. Stanford is much more openly defiant and will take a situation head on.
This still accounts for their fighting styles. Stanford will take it head on
(like not knowing when to shut the heck up in front of Bill), but may still be
defensive when fighting. Stanley will wait until he knows the right moment to
strike, and then he’ll beat the living (or undead) crap out of you.
