** 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."

** 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''.

* 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 and failing to properly organize his deputies to capture Rambo. It does show he still cares as when he and his men were outmaneuvered, Teasle helped a deputy name Balford who was injured by a booby trap built by Rambo.
