* VillainWithGoodPublicity: In the eyes of the town of Hope, he is their sheriff hunting for an escaped fugitive and a HeroAntagonist after all. In addition, according to the DVD's Survival Mode, Teasle had many affiliations in the Hope area and was a beloved member of the community, as shown in the film when he seemed to know everyone who walked past. Teasle at one point won the Hope Little League Coach of the Year award, as well as the Kiwanis Service Award in 1968, a Hope community service award in 1973 and a Mayor's Circle award in 1978. He was a member of the local Hope Kiwanis and Elks Clubs, the Fraternal Order of Police and the National Rifle Association. However, if the ending is any indication, this trope will end for him once the truth about what happened to Rambo that led to his escape and rampage through town gets out.

* TheParanoiac: He initially drove Rambo out of town and then arrested him when returning due to him being a drifter who Teasle believes would disrupt harmony in Hope. In the novel, however, Teasle is ProperlyParanoid, due to Rambo being more of a irredeemable psycho then the movie.
