* WeirdWest: Despite debuting in ''Weird Western Tales'', most Jonah Hex tales aren't actually WeirdWest stories. The three Vertigo mini-series were this, a full-on example of this though, as they included things like functioning Voodoo, humanoid tentacle monsters from time before man, and Native American bear spirits.

spirits. That said, because they are part of Franchise/TheDCU, there's always a certain amount of WeirdWest potential in any story, and Jonah's [[TimeTravel time travelled]] at least twice, including spending a few years living in a post-apocalyptic future.

* GodIsEvil : Jonah expresses this view on several occasions, believing that the kind, just God of Christianity is just a comforting delusion for those who don't know God's cruelty as well as he does.

* SexSlave: Emmylou Hartley ended up as this when Indians attacked her family's wagon train. The only survivors of the attack were herself, her older sister and her cousin. Her sister shot herself with her husband's rifle rather than surrender, while her cousin was tortured to death when she refused a forced marriage with an Indian. With her cousin's fate in mind, Emmylou submitted, escaping her captors four years later and encountering Jonah Hex, who saved her from her pursuers.

* StrongFamilyResemblance: Jason Hex, as an adult, is shown to resemble his father Jonah greatly (or, rather, Jonah before his face was disfigured) despite being half-"Celestial" (i.e., Chinese) on his mother's side.

The character has appeared in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries,'' ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague,'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episodes. Also, [[Film/JonahHex a feature film]] was released on June 18, 2010 starring Josh Brolin and Creator/MeganFox. The results were... less than auspicious, with reviews ranging from mixed to horrible, and a box office that suffered heavily (thanks mostly to competition from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''). There is also the animated short, ''WesternAnimation/DCShowcaseJonahHex'', that serves as a bonus feature for ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood''; interestingly, it's written by Joe Lansdale, who wrote the Hex-starring Batman TAS episode "Showdown" (and some of the aforementioned Vertigo series). He was made part of the Series/{{Arrowverse}} with an appearance in the time-travelling series ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''.

* CorruptHive: If you thought modern day Gotham was bad, it's basically Disneyland compared to what it was like in Jonah's day.

* TheSavageIndian: While ''Jonah Hex does'' generally portray Indians in a sympathetic light, it also doesn't shy away from just how savage they could be if you got on their bad side, in particular their penchant for torture. In ''Two Gun Mojo'', Jonah cripples an especially nasty villain and leaves him for the approaching Apaches to find, knowing that they'll give him a long slow death.
