*** 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.

** 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.


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:

* TragicBigot: Mostly in the novel, as while he bares FantasticRacism again 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:

* 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.

** According to the [[AllInTheManual DVD's Survival Mode easter egg trivia]], Teasle's resume in his profile included being a [[FriendToAllChildren little league coach]].

** According to the [[AllInTheManual [[AllThereInTheManual DVD's Survival Mode easter egg trivia]], Teasle's resume in his profile included being a [[FriendToAllChildren little league coach]].



* AllInTheManual: 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.

* WouldHurtAChild: Allows his men to massacre both adults and children and he himself even rapes them for his own sick kicks. Another complete [[ChildHater contrast]] to the first film's BigBad Teasle, who's [[AllInTheManual resume in the DVD special features]] states him to have been a [[FriendToAllChildren little league coach]].

** To compare him to the previous villains, Teasle was a KnightsTemplar HeroAntagonist ([[HeWhoFightsMonsters even though]] he's a DirtyCop) and his motives were mostly out of [[JerkassWoobie understandable]] FantasticRacism of 'Nam vets due to them putting Korean War vets like Teasle in their shadow and that fact Rambo was a fugitive from justice needed to be caught unlike Tint's motives being merely ForTheEvulz, DirtyCommunists Podovsky and Zaysen were [[EvilIsHammy over-the-top characters to not really be taken seriously]] with them just to be there for the audiences to cheer Rambo to kill them unlike Tint, who's TheStoic SoftSpokenSadist whose actions not only makes the audience to cheer Rambo kill him too, but also shock them due to the grisly details behind the acts and their atrocities are tame in comparison to Tint's, plus while Tint doesn't have TheDragon, the previous ones Galt, Yushin and Kourov were just thugs whose depravity are nothing in comparison to Tint's pedophilia and the Tint's constant KickTheDog acts.
** On a minor note, he's the only BigBad not to speak a word of English and the only to be an UnknownRival to him unlike others before him. He's also the only villain to [[NonActionBigBad not head-on fight Rambo himself]] and [[DirtyCoward just flee for his life]].

* KickedUpstairs: Explains to Rambo that he was shuffled off to a do-nothing desk job at the Pentagon some time after the war ended:
-->'''Rambo:''' "I tried to get in touch with you, but the guys at Bragg never knew where to find you."
-->'''Trautman:''' "Well, I haven't been spending much time there lately. They've got me down in D.C., I'm shining a seat with my ass."
