* AxCrazy: A subversion. Even if they [[{{Ubermensch}} don't make sense to a normal person]], Chigurh has his reasons, and he's more coldly logical than crazy. He does, however, have one of the primary traits of a true AxeCrazy, which is the immense amount of danger involved in even speaking to him.

* AdaptationalWimp: A [[DownplayedTrope downplayed example]]. At the end of the movie and book [[spoiler:he gets T-Boned]]. In the book this moment showed his ingenuity and quick thinking [[spoiler:the car crashes into the drivers side, and he reacted quick enough to throw himself to the passengers side, still injuring himself but surviving]]. The film makes the incident less severe and he's slower to react [[spoiler:the car crashes into the passenger side of the car and that's what saves him; in this incident he's not the hyper aware person he was in the book]].

* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: He doesn't seem to hate anybody: after eventually conceding a conversation to the literal gas station attendant, he schools him a little on how the world works (from his perspective) - that he is threatening to kill him seems of no consequence to him; [[spoiler:he greets Carson like an old friend even as he walks towards him with intent to kill him quietly in his room - he knows Carson is aware of this, and he simply wants him to accept it completely; after calmly explaining to Carla Jean why she needs to die, he decides to give her a chance to survive their encounter anyway by presenting the coin toss - even as she refuses, he continues to explain to her his logic (believing that it be all logic) so that she can die with a clear head]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheStoic: He's not one for emotions.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: While he can't express it with any emotion, [[TheStoic per usual]], he is actually shaken by [[spoiler: Carla's claim, in both the book and the movie, that it's his own choice to kill rather than something he is required to do by fate. In the book, he feels the need to pontificate at length as to why his way of thinking is right and justified before he finally kills her.]]
