* BloodKnight: A particularly notable case, even amongst the other Ghost Riders. The only thing making him a hero is that the men he's hunting are [[CompleteMonster even worse]].

* DarkIsNotEvil: Subverted: While he may come off as kind and jovial, he's evil, he knows he's evil, and any demon who tries

* DarkIsNotEvil: Subverted: While he may come off as kind and jovial, he's evil, he knows he's evil, he loves being evil, and any demon who tries doesn't feel the same is a liar.

Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: To a certain degree. He loves John Wayne and singing along to country songs while [[GoodOlBoy driving with the top down]]. When Johnny's bike is stolen by Ruth, Hoss not only gives him a lift, but offers him a beer too. Subverted, however, in that he ''is'' a demon, and will [[FateWorseThanDeath shove your head up your ass]] if you scratch his car.
* AteHisGun: How he claims to have died originally, shooting himself as a young man out of embarrassment after being caught [[ADateWithRosiePalms getting intimate with his mother's undergarments]].
* AttackOfTheMonsterAppendage: Uses a giant tentacle as a weapon. Said tentacle also happens to be his... [[GagPenis well, you know.]]
* CountryMusic: He carries a wide selection in his glove compartment, and sings along to all of them.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Subverted: While he may come off as kind and jovial, he's evil, he knows he's evil, and any demon who tries
* FatBastard: Just look at him.
* GoodOlBoy: A dark parody version, seeing as he is a demon.
* MotorMouth: He never shut's up, though considering he's surrounded by a cast of [[TheStoic stoics]], who can blame him?
* OedipusComplex: Possibly. He claims to have shot himself after being caught with her [[PantyThief underwear.]]
* OrderVsChaos: He explains that while Hell and demons may seem chaotic at a glance, and many of their ways don't seem to make sense, there is a fine order to it. He specifically sites how people like [[spoiler: Kazaan]] are dangerous because they want to shake things up, and while to an outside observer like Johnny it may seem as simple as trading one Hell for another, in reality it means the total collapse of the afterlife.
* PunchClockVillain: As he explains to Johnny after the latter attacks him, he may be one of Hell's bounty hunter's, but that doesn't mean he's after Johnny. He has a job to do, and as long as Johnny isn't working for [[spoiler: Kazaan]] then there's no reason they can't get along.
* StatusQuo: Wants things just the way they are.


Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: So much so that Malachi, a fellow angel, is so terrified of her that he is willing to bust Johnny Blaze out of Hell under the slim chance that the Ghost Rider ''might'' be fast enough to catch [[spoiler: Kazaan]] before she does. When he is notified that Hoss is also on the trail and that he and Johnny have teamed up, he says it doesn't matter so long as they succeed before Ruth does.
** His fears end up being justified, as once the truth comes out about [[spoiler: Kazaan, she tears his wings off and leaves him trapped in Hell to suffer for all eternity.]] It's left ambiguous if she was being [[CruelAndUnusualDeath merciful]] or not.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: We first meet her sitting in a bus stop diner next to a young boy and his mother. The boy, having "the sight" tells his mother that the woman next to them is an angel. The mother tells her son not to make up stories and apologizes to Ruth. Ruth then locks eyes with the boy and, making a sign with her hand, gets up to leave. The boy, with a look of terror on his face, tells his mother that he is a sinner while [[EyeScream pointing a pencil at his eyes]]. The mother's screams of terror can be heard as Ruth exits the diner.
* GoodIsNotNice: See above.
* ImplacableMan: No matter what gets thrown at her, she doesn't even slow down.
* InvincibleVillain: To those who stand in her way.
* LightIsNotGood: Despite being an angel, she mercilessly and emotionlessly slaughters dozens of people all so she can get to her target.
* MookHorrorShow: Bullets, grenades, rockets; nothing works against this un-killable woman, as the local security forces learn the hard way. It gets even worse when she starts killing them [[GrievousHarmWithABody with each other]].
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler: Ruth and Hoss, an angel and a demon, end up forming a working partnership that suits both of their interests and grants them likely promotions in their ranks, despite Kazaan and Malachi, the ones who they were sent to capture, both doing the exact same thing.]] The irony isn't lost on them, but as Hoss points out, it [[LifeIsntFair doesn't really matter in the end]].
* TheQuietOne: Never speaks.
* TheStoic: Doesn't say a word and rarely smiles.

Added DiffLines:

* AntebellumAmerica: He was a self-freed black man living in the Antebellum South during the AmericanCivilWar. After the war, his family is hounded by a lynch gang who are styled after the proto KKK of the time.
* AntiHero: Borderline VillainProtagonist at points, he doesn't care how many innocents die, as long as he get's the men he's after.
* BloodKnight: A particularly notable case, even amongst the other Ghost Riders. The only thing making him a hero is that the men he's hunting are [[CompleteMonster even worse]].
* ColdBloodedTorture: If he has the luxury, he prefers to make his enemies suffer before they die.
* DealWithTheDevil: Like all Ghost Riders, though his was made with spirits from his ancestors homeland in order to protect his family. Unfortunately for him, this Spirit of Vengeance doesn't protect, it can [[ExactWords only take revenge]]. As such, Caleb is given the power only after he is dead, so that he can hunt down his family's killers.
* ForcedToWatch: He was forced to watch as his son's were nailed to a tree and shot to death, all the while taunted as to how he couldn't save them. While this is going on he can hear his wife being raped just a few feet away from him, before she too is killed with a knife. Only then do his captors kills him.
* JerkassWoobie: He may be a jerk and a killer, but given what happened to him, it's a bit understandable.
* KillEmAll: All but one person who ever came into contact with him has died a gruesome death. Not always by his hands.
* NominalHero: He is only concerned with his own personal vengeance. If innocents get in the way, [[KillEmAll so be it.]]

* TheAntiChrist: One of Satan's many children, Anton is the only one so far to be directly referred to as the Anti-Christ. This has more to do with the fact that (aside from Hellstrom) he is the only one of those children still alive more than anything. Still, he ''is'' the son of Satan, which makes him an all around dick.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Well, he ''is'' the Anti-Christ. Goes so far as to threaten to sell his employees children's organs if they don't stop slacking off.
* DirtyKid: Openly gropes Sara and calls her a "feisty Catholic" when she forces him to stop.
* TheEnemyOfMyEnemy: Because Zadkiel had taken over Heaven, the Ghost Rider's needed allies in all the places they could get. Seeing as Zadkiel's agents were gunning for him too, he begrudgingly agrees to go along with them.
* ObviousJudas: Come on, he's the Anti-Christ, of course he's going to betray you!
