* AntiHero: A well-meant guy who takes pity on the oppressed. He also bullies the cowardly townsfolk, and rapes a woman who was rude to him when he could have just ignored her.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: The movie doesn't make it clear as to exactly ''what'' he is.



* UndyingLoyalty: Despite most of Lago being scared of The Stranger, Mordecai is the only one to be willing to help him out without showing some fear. It could be his attempt to atone for not helping the marshal out when he was being whipped to death. [[spoiler: Plus he is the only one that knew The Stranger's true identity in the end.]]
