* AdaptationNameChange: Full name only; he was Wilfred Teasle in the novel, but according to the Survival Mode on the film's DVD, he's William Wright Teasle. This name change is proper, considering the AdaptationalVillainy and SchrodingersCast makeover this film's Teasle received in contrast to the novel's Teasle.

* SaveTheVillain: In the first film, he make this trope clear about his intent:
--> '''Col. Trautman:''' I don't think you understand. I didn't come to rescue Rambo from you. I came here to rescue you from him.
-->'''Sheriff Teasle:''' Well, we all appreciate your concern Colonel, we'll try to be extra careful.

* MoralityPet: He act as this for Teasle in the novel, trying to tell him how he is doing his job the wrong way and how it would lead to the HeWhoFightsMonsters path. Orval's death only fuels Teasle with vengeance against Rambo.
* ParentalSubstitute: Acts as the surrogate father figure for Teasle after Teasle's dad was killed accidentally in a deer hunt in the novel.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: It is implied (and the director's commentary mentions) that part of the reason Teasle is so hateful about Rambo is because of the Korean War (where he served) being pretty much forgotten by the American people while Rambo (a VietnamWar vet) is a symbol of the new, controversial thing. Explicit in the novel.

** While the character in the film is played by Sylvester Stallone, who is a combination of Italian, French, and Jewish Ukranian, the second film notes Rambo as being ''of Indian/German descent''.
* CopKiller: Killed sadistic policeman Art Galt in self-defense in the first film. Galt's death was [[AccidentalMurder accidental]], falling from the helicopter after Rambo throws a rock at the windshield because he was leaning out the door with his seat harness unbuckled.

* HeroWithBadPublicity: In the first film, when he was shunned by society, submitted to humiliation by anti-war "maggots" upon returning home, arrested for no good reason and finds himself a fugitive from justice before turning himself in that leads to life in prison until the sequel where he is pardoned.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Is killed via [[BoomHeadshot shotgun blast to the head by Trautman]] at the end of the ''First Blood'' novel. An alternate ending where Trautman kills him was filmed before they went for the ending that was put on screen, and it appears quickly on a dream sequence/flashback on the fourth movie (and is available on the DVD collection).

** In the second and third films, he is more known for using an [[MoreDakka M60]] and [[KnifeNut Large Bowie Knife]]. The fourth film gives him a machete that he made himself.

This name change is proper, considering the AdaptationalVillainy and SchrodingersCast makeover this film's Teasle received in contrast to the novel's Teasle.
* AdaptationalVillainy: While Teasle was still a bit of a jerk in the novel, he was also a far more complex character and somewhat of a JerkassWoobie and a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. The novel goes into great detail on his motives, his relationships with his family and other members of the town, and acknowledges several similarities between him and John. He arguably comes off as more sympathetic than Rambo and even drives Rambo to a diner to have something to eat before taking him to town limits. The film makes him into a [[HateSink one-dimensional asshole who the audience has no trouble rooting against]], even though he has his JerkassWoobie and PetTheDog moments, which were minimum in comparison to the amount he had in the novel. Also, if Teasle in the film is a decorated Korean War hero like in the novel, the film makes him more of a FallenHero to that then in the book.
* AlasPoorVillain: In a way, as everything he tried to do was to prove what Korean War vets are made of after being shunned for so long and to uphold the law in his duty as a policeman, yet now he's wounded in a pathetic state and is about to take more flak then he's ever before imagined.

* BigBad: Of the first film and the novel. Subverted in the novel, he's the true hero in the novel.
* BenevolentBoss: He genuinely cares for his deputy, heck, Galt's death is one of the main reasons why he chases after John. However, he is also considered to count as a BadBoss, due to neglecting to notice Galt's abuse of Rambo, ignoring Deputy Mitch Rogers' advise and even grabbing him by his hair to show him Galt's corpse and vowing vengeance before finally failing to properly organize his deputies to capture Rambo that leads them to be easily overpowered. It does show he still cares as when he and his men were outmaneuvered, Teasle helped a deputy named Balford who was injured by a booby trap built by Rambo.

* {{Expy}}: The movie's depiction of Teasle has more in common with the {{Franchise/Batman}} comic book character Harvey Bullock then the novel's version of the character. As both Teasle and Bullock are a FatBastard {{Jerkass}} DirtyCop who are willing to antagonize and arrest TheHero due to their backgrounds they loathed (Rambo is a Vietnam vet and a drifter which are both things Teasle despised, while Batman is a costumed vigilante that Bullock views as a freak).

Then during the initial manhunt, when Teasle hears the gunshots from Galt's attempt to personally execute Rambo out of spite, he tries to radio Galt to remind him that Rambo is to be taken in alive as part of police protocol.

* FormerRegimePersonnel: He's a Korean War veteran-turned sheriff.



* GreenEyedMonster: See FantasticRacism and DudeWheresMyRespect above.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Serves as a HeroAntagonist to capture fugitive from justice Rambo, but internally just to prove that Korean War vets (which Teasle is one of them) are more badass then Vietnam War vets (which Rambo is one of them) and to avenge the death of Art Galt, who's a despicable character to begin with, accidentally caused by Rambo. In general, despite doing his hardest to uphold the law and bring in ''his'' brand of justice, it turned him into a viciously prejudiced DirtyCop and RabidCop in order to do so in his view.

* HiddenHeartOfGold: See PetTheDog below.



* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Wants Rambo's head to avenge the death of fellow colleague Art Galt, who is a despicable piece of work to begin with, making the audience wonder what Teasle sees in Galt, aside from their shared hatred of Rambo.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He is prejudiced against Vietnam veterans, yet throughout the film the assault rifles (an M16 and a [=HK93=]) he armed himself are kinds used during the Vietnam War.



* ItsAllAboutMe: See DudeWheresMyRespect above.
* {{Irony}}: See {{Hypocrite}} above.



* JerkassHasAPoint: While the manhunt is driven by Teasle's dislike of Vietnam vets and Rambo's AccidentalMurder of Galt, as a policeman and he doesn't care if Rambo's rampage is a result of PTSD, he is valid that Rambo should not be let off that easy after committing, what Teasle thought it was, first degree murder and for being a CopKiller. This could be subverted however, as Teasle was clearly thinking with his black heart and not his head and he knew about Galt's nature and disposition and knew that Rambo likely killed Galt in self-defense, which is what happened, coupled with Galt's own foolish actions. Although Rambo would be charged for destruction of property, he would likely not be charged with Galt's death.

** 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. 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.
*** Also subverted as Teasle, being the RabidCop he is, 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.

** In a deleted scene from Teasle's and Trautman's initial encounter, Trautman tells Teasle that he (Teasle) picked the wrong man (Rambo) to push (referring to the mistreatment he and his deputies gave to Rambo), but Teasle argues ''he'' (Rambo) picked the wrong man (Teasle) (likely referring to Rambo trying to deliberately walk into town to Teasle's opposition that led to Rambo's arrest):

%%* NoNonsenseNemesis
* NobleBigotWithABadge: 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. Even earlier when Rambo first escapes from custody, he initially wanted to take in Rambo alive as part of police protocol despite his prejudice against him for his background unlike Galt who just want to kill him for the same kind of prejudice Galt bares against too upon finding him with Teasle trying to radio him to remind him of their duties. It's only after his friend Galt had been killed, Teasle loses any moral restraint he has inside to kill Rambo to avenge him.
* NotSoDifferent: Both Rambo and Teasle are military veterans in UsefulNotes/ColdWar conflicts who are also each a BrokenAce and a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds due to the way the public has been [[UngratefulBastard mistreating them despite their services]]:
** Rambo has been living life on the road, nearly friendless with Trautman as an exception, jobless and hated by anti-war civilians to a point he's been called a "baby killer," while Teasle's Korean War service has been forgotten and living in the shadow of the Vietnam War hot topic.
** More explicit in the novel.
%%* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou
* 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.
* PetTheDog: He is a police officer after all. In a deleted scene, he shows remorse towards Galt's widow, who's grieving over Galt's corpse, and attempts to apologize to a deputy's wife for her husband's injuries Rambo caused. He then justified his man hunt by listing out the devastation Rambo caused ranging from his deputies' incapacitation to Galt's widow's grief. In the bar scene, he has a civil talk with Trautman (even started his talk with him by apologizing for being "out of line") after thinking Rambo was killed by the National Guard, confessing his desire to kill Rambo himself to him. In a deleted part of this scene, at the beginning of the scene, he returned the gesture of being congratulated for Rambo's "death," while at the end of the scene, he then offered Trautman a ride to the airport. During the man hunt, when Orval was wounded, he tends to Orval's wounds and then when Deputy Balford was wounded by a booby trap, he freed Balford. Also, just before his final showdown with Rambo, he alerts the townspeople to get off the streets and hide in their homes to be away from danger when Rambo arrives.
** According to the [[AllThereInTheManual DVD's Survival Mode easter egg trivia]], Teasle's resume in his profile included being a [[FriendToAllChildren little league coach]].
** It should be noted he's the only BigBad in the Rambo films who have any PetTheDog moments.
** [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk This is subverted however]], in a deleted scene involving an argument with Kern where Teasle tries to justify his treatment of Rambo, claiming that he "tried to do him a favor" and treated him like "one of (his) neighbor's kids" (likely referring to Teasle's initial civil and jovial welcome to Rambo while trying to escort him out of town and trying to hold back his IrrationalHatred of Rambo being a 'Nam vet while being civil with him, before Rambo pushed his BerserkButton by purposely returning to town that prompts him to arrest and mistreat him out of FantasticRacism):
--> '''Teasle:''' I tried to do him a favor, I treated him like he was one of my neighbor's kids.
** However, the novel's depiction of the character has more PetTheDog moments then the movie's depiction and was more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold in a way.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: See FantasticRacism above.
* RabidCop: A {{Jerkass}} cop who uses heavy-handed protocol against vagrants and gets other {{Jerkass}} officers to do the rest of his dirty work for him at the station.
* RedemptionRejection: After [[spoiler:thinking Rambo is dead]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Teasle]] mellows down and meets with Trautman to apologized for being a {{Jerkass}} RabidCop about the ordeal and confessing his desire to kill Rambo to him, [[HopeSpot making it seem he is preparing to walk away from his personal manhunt]] to TookALevelInKindness, [[spoiler:but when he hears Rambo is still alive]] and Trautman still tries to reason Teasle, Teasle aggressively rebuffs Trautman's attempts to take on the chance to achieve his own ends by killing Rambo.
* RetiredBadass: Teasle is the only cop that seems to give thought to tactics and is unimpressed with Rambo's military background. [[MeaningfulBackgroundEvent In his office a Silver Star, Purple Heart and ADSC are on display]], revealing that Teasle was not only a soldier but a soldier awarded for extreme valor, presumably in the Korean War.[[note]]The original novel does say he served with distinction in Korea.[[/note]]

* NotSoDifferent: Both Rambo and Teasle are military veterans in UsefulNotes/ColdWar conflicts who are also each a BrokenAce and a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds due to the way the public has been [[UngratefulBastard mistreating them despite their services]]:
** Rambo has been living life on the road, nearly friendless with Trautman as an exception, jobless and hated by anti-war civilians to a point he's been called a "baby killer," while Teasle's Korean War service has been forgotten and living in the shadow of the Vietnam War hot topic.
** More explicit in the novel.
%%* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou
* 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 than the movie.
* PetTheDog: He is a police officer after all. In a deleted scene, he shows remorse towards Galt's widow, who's grieving over Galt's corpse, and attempts to apologize to a deputy's wife for her husband's injuries Rambo caused. He then justified his man hunt by listing out the devastation Rambo caused ranging from his deputies' incapacitation to Galt's widow's grief. In the bar scene, he has a civil talk with Trautman (even started his talk with him by apologizing for being "out of line") after thinking Rambo was killed by the National Guard, confessing his desire to kill Rambo himself to him. In a deleted part of this scene, at the beginning of the scene, he returned the gesture of being congratulated for Rambo's "death," while at the end of the scene, he then offered Trautman a ride to the airport. During the man hunt, manhunt, when Orval was wounded, he tends to Orval's wounds and then when Deputy Balford was wounded by a booby trap, he freed Balford. Also, just before his final showdown with Rambo, he alerts the townspeople to get off the streets and hide in their homes to be away from danger when Rambo arrives.
** According to the [[AllThereInTheManual DVD's Survival Mode easter egg trivia]], trivia, Teasle's resume in his profile included being a [[FriendToAllChildren little league coach]].

** It should be noted he's the only BigBad in the Rambo films who have any PetTheDog moments.
** [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
This is subverted however]], demeaned however, in a deleted scene involving an argument with Kern where Teasle tries to justify his treatment of Rambo, claiming that he "tried to do him a favor" and treated him like "one of (his) neighbor's kids" (likely referring to Teasle's initial civil and jovial welcome to Rambo while trying to escort him out of town and trying to hold back his IrrationalHatred of Rambo being a 'Nam vet while being civil with him, before Rambo pushed his BerserkButton by purposely returning to town that prompts him to arrest and mistreat him out of FantasticRacism):

'''Teasle:''' I tried to do him a favor, I treated him like he was one of my neighbor's kids.

* RabidCop: A {{Jerkass}} cop who uses heavy-handed protocol against vagrants and gets other {{Jerkass}} officers to do the rest of his dirty work for him at the station.
* RedemptionRejection: After [[spoiler:thinking Rambo is dead]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Teasle]] Teasle mellows down and meets with Trautman to apologized for being a {{Jerkass}} RabidCop about the ordeal and confessing his desire to kill Rambo to him, [[HopeSpot making it seem he is preparing to walk away from his personal manhunt]] manhunt to TookALevelInKindness, [[spoiler:but when he hears Rambo is still alive]] and Trautman still tries to reason Teasle, Teasle aggressively rebuffs Trautman's attempts to take on the chance to achieve his own ends by killing Rambo.
* RetiredBadass: Teasle is the only cop that seems to give thought to tactics and is unimpressed with Rambo's military background. [[MeaningfulBackgroundEvent In his office a Silver Star, Purple Heart and ADSC are on display]], revealing that Teasle was not only a soldier but a soldier awarded for extreme valor, presumably in the Korean War.[[note]]The original novel does say he served with distinction in Korea.[[/note]]

* AllThereInTheManual: According to the DVD's Survival Mode easter egg trivia, Galt served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1953 to 1957 as a motorpool sergeant at Camp Lejeune and then served in the reserves from 1958 to 1973. This might as well explain why Galt was trigger-happy and prolific as a ColdSniper in the film. Also, given that Teasle is a Korean War veteran and both him and Galt have been friends for a long time when Deputy Mitch Rogers was still a little kid, these facts hint how long they might have been friends. Also, given Teasle's prejudice against Rambo for being a Vietnam vet and Galt's cruelty against Rambo, it could also imply Galt's bullying of Rambo stems from both officers sharing the same dislike of Vietnam veterans as both Galt and Teasle served in the military at a decade that has been forgotten by the public at the time of this film. In addition, despite being a cop, Galt also has criminal record, which shows Galt is a {{Hypocrite}} due to his occupation and also explains what kind of character he is based on his behavior in the film.
