Doesn't Rasmus represent the typical Faceless mobster you murder?

I think so. Richard is you. The woman from the end of Decadence wears the Don Juan mask.

Okay, I'm going to join the analysis once I've replayed the game.

Dredd (excellent movie) is about a Gunlugger being teamed up with a Brainer.

Gunlugger going aggro to try and get some info but the guy sucks it up so the brainer uses casual brain receptivity.

I guess you could make the case for Judge Dredd to be a Faceless but at least in this movie he does all the Gunlugger moves (including prepared for the inevitable). I don't think his Facelessness is all that important since he never loses his helmet.

Reviving a bit old topic, but maybe someone will take a look.
I would say that you also have Hardholder in Dredd (MaMa and her clan).

As for faceless, this one is hard to beat (from Borderlands 2):

As for operators - well, that's a bit hard, as most of the fiction figures that are fit to be operator, also fit nicely into the hardholder. But guys from Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and from Snatch should fit nicely. Actually I would say, that you can watch the Snatch, and have archetype, after archetype paraded in front of you :)
The same goes for the Boondock Saints.

The  song "Stuck in the Middle With You" from Reservoir Dogs makes me think of the operator. Heck the movie could be translated as the operator and and her crew after failing a moonlighting roll and playing out the consequences in game.

"The Sun and Moon" by Cursive makes me think of the Brainer. With lyrics like "I can see through you like a two way mirror" it's hard not to.

Ok, I just watched "Domino" for second time, and here you have perfect BattleBabe, and you can also spot Operator, and Hardholder (although you will have to watch full movie to get good feel of it - which I wholeheartedly recommend):
