* NoSell: The Saint of Killers never sells ''anything.'' The most clear example of the trope is when Cassidy punches him on the chin with his SuperStrength, and the Saint just stares at him.

* NoSell: NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Although Jesse is clearly weirded out by Jesus de Sade's party, he tells de Sade that there's nothing wrong with "excess" as long as no one's getting hurt. But when Jesse sees that [[spoiler:a child is involved, he beats de Sade so badly he's unrecognizable]].

** When Jesse is a teenager, Jody no-sells his punches. When Jesse is grown, he can do a little more damage, but even so Jody can shrug off a lot. When Jesse hits him with a fence board that gets stuck to Jody's cheek with the nails, Jody just smirks and says, "Kinda diff'rent."
** Jesse punches Detective Paulie Bridges, who takes it without blinking and then drops Jesse with one punch to the gut.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: The L'Angelles. Jesse remarks that the L'Angelles must have the "Devil's own piss" running in their veins instead of blood. It was something of a miracle that Jesse's own mother turned out as well as she did -- which is probably why she fled in the first place.

** Probably ''the'' key source of conflict between Jesse and Tulip. ZigZagged in that Jesse is not as bad as 99% of the examples; initially he's completely appreciative of Tulip's skills and grateful for her support in their adventures, essentially thinking of her and Cassidy as the muscle of their trio while he's the brains. This changes after [[spoiler:his family catches them in "Until The End Of The World" - and ''shoots her in the head'' to assert their authority over him. It [[BackFromTheDead doesn't stick]],]] but afterwards the trope comes into play in earnest...

Added DiffLines:

** Tulip carries a Desert Eagle. Before buying it, she asks if there is a .50 caliber version available, but she's told that they're not practical, so she's apparently using a .357 or .44 caliber.

** The beginning of the Saint of Killer's origin story references a grab bag of classic Westerns: ''Film/TheOutlawJoseyWales'', ''Film/TheShootist'', ''Film/LonesomeDove'', ''Film/TheSearchers'' and ''Film/{{Unforgiven}}.''
** Jesus [=DeSade=] quotes and name-drops Oscar Wilde, which is apparently supposed to add to his DepravedHomosexual characterization, though of course Wilde himself was not depraved.
