!!Campbell's Men
* AvengingtheVillain: [[spoiler: Assaulting Durant was Heckard’s way of getting revenge for Jessup’s death. Too bad for him he got the wrong guy…]]
* HangingJudge: Death by hanging is the only sentence that Judge Webber has doled out, whether or not it was the right call to make.
* KangarooCourt: If having one member of the group serve as the sole witness while the verdict being at least partially determined by the group leader’s will isn’t unfair, this troper doesn’t know what is. Their trials are even referred to as this by Louise Ellison.
* LastNameBasis: Almost always referred to by their family names, with the occasional job title thrown in. [[spoiler: Heckard’s given name, Dwight, is not revealed until ‘Under Color of Law’ when Sydney arrests Durant for his murder.]]
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: “Dumb mick” is not an appropriate term for anyone who’s Irish, Jessup.
* SuddenlySexuality: [[spoiler: With no clear implications beforehand, Heckard admits to having been in love with another man. It’s unknown, however, if he would qualify as gay or bisexual (given his apparent pass at Naomi in 'Chicken Hill').]]
* TheSociopath: An apt description for both Jessup and Heckard, the latter especially.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Marshal Jessup and Heckard are rarely seen apart. As partners in law enforcement, it could be because of this profession; however, the last scene of ‘Life’s a Mystery’ gives some [[StraightGay additional context]].
* USMarshal: Two of them.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Treasurer Atwood gets very, ''very'' little screen-time between his introduction and death.

!! Martin Delaney
* BFG: Wields a mounted [[GatlingGood Gatling Gun]] at one point – and does quite a good job with it, I might add.
* ButtMonkey: Sure, he held the prestigious post of Chief Engineer for the Union Pacific, but it certainly wasn’t because of his engineering degree – the people who appointed him to the job considered him so dim-witted that he would be easy to manipulate. The two worst blows came in season five: [[spoiler: his wife filed for divorce, and then he was killed as the improvised part of Durant’s latest money-making scheme. The plot went awry anyway, making his death completely pointless.]]
