Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: Galt is easily one of the most despicable characters in the series. What with his sheer sadism and poor treatment of Rambo.

* BigBad: He's this and VillainProtagonist in the novel. Despite his sympathetic backstory, his actions by the end of the novel make any sympathy you have for him fade away when he kills the innocent townspeople.



* BigBad: Of the first film and the novel.

* TragicBigot: Mostly in the novel, as while he bares FantasticRacism against Rambo for being a Vietnam War veteran who overshadowed the the existence of Korean War veterans, he is more of a JerkassWoobie due to losing a father in a hunting trip, being divorced from his wife and overall portrayed more sympathetically. Downplayed in the film adaptation.

Added DiffLines:

* SupportingProtagonist: Overlaps with BigBad in the novel, due to equal amounts of focus and backstory. By the end of the novel, it is clear that Teasle has become TheHero against Rambo, who is a VillainProtagonist in the novel.

*** Subverted as Teasle only found the knife when he searched Rambo's bag without Probable Cause, a violation of the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution's Bill of Rights (unlawful search and seizure) that would have resulted in any Judge in America throwing the case out of court for police misconduct.

** Furthermore, when he first arrested Rambo, he was correct that Rambo should not be carrying a dangerous combat knife in the public which makes it at least one (possibly the ''only'') good reason to prosecute him for and to make matters worse, Rambo was probably carrying it without a license as he could not afford one due to being shunned by the public to support him. However, the penalty Rambo was given for it was harsher than the felony itself, thanks to the other charges for vagrancy and resisting arrest.

It also does not help that Rambo was not giving out a straight clear answer when Teasle first questions him over it. However, the penalty Rambo was given for it was harsher than the felony itself, thanks to the other charges for vagrancy and resisting arrest.


Added DiffLines:

* NobleBigot: He is extremely prejudiced against Vietnam War vets, but however, he is more respectful towards Colonel Trautman, likely due to Trautman being not only a Vietnam War vet, but also (according to AllThereInTheManual for Trautman) a Korean War vet like Teasle, which is only thing that prevents Teasle from being totally hostile towards him unlike to Rambo.

Added DiffLines:

* SchrodingersCast: He is a completely different character in the novel, more along the lines of in terms of physical appearance and personality of Deputy Mitch Rogers from the film version.
